Moisture-rich primer nourishes, soothes, and conditions skin as it creates a smooth surface for flawless makeup application. The formula provides a soft-focus effect to help minimize the look of pores, fine lines, and imperfections.
Laura created this expert Hydrating primer specifically for dry, dehydrated skin. Lightweight, creamy formula creates a protective moisture buffer, with an enhanced antioxidant vitamin "cocktail" that helps protect skin against harmful, aging effects of the environment.
Prepares for and perfects makeup application
Like all Laura Mercier™ Primers, it creates a perfectly smooth, even surface for applying foundation. It helps makeup glide on easily and last longer, so your look stays fresh and colour-true for hours.
Why Laura's primers are different
Unlike traditional primers that are overloaded with silicone smoothers, Laura Mercier™ Primers are water-based and include a minimal concentration of the lightest silicones. That's why they feel fresh and lightweight, and why they work as well as they do.
Foundation Primer - Hydrating gives skin a natural, dewy finish, with invisible coverage. Ideal for normal to dry skin types.
Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist tested.
Apply on clean skin, or after your moisturizer or sunscreen. Gently massage primer into skin’s surface with fingertips. Follow with Tinted Moisturizer, Foundation, or Concealer.
Place in the refrigerator before use. The coolness will refresh your skin and help reduce visible puffiness.

This is by far the best primer I've ever used. My primed face has a silky feel to it. I do love the fact that it contains Vitamins A, C and E. It also contains Sodium Hyaluronate, the more bio-available form of that awesome skin (and wrinkle) plumper hyaluronic acid. What is not to love about this unscented, soothing, non-greasy primer containing antioxidants that are good for aging skin? Absolutely nothing. It is awesome!

I'm a real LM fan, have been for years, so when I received a Primer sample, I tried it, loved it, and immediately bought the Hydrating version for winter and the Radiance version for nights out.When I try to use the Hydrating formula, a clear white liquid drips out of the tube whenever I squeeze to dispense product. Similar to water, it drips with every tilt of the tube. I do manage to get the product on my face but not without a complete mess.Nothing seems to help. Have shaken before use, have not shaken, have kept product in a cool room, in a warm room....For $30, you'd expect a successfully emulsified product.

Doesn't feel like it does anything

About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Hydrating:
I got this as a sample when i redeemed my beauty points. I was excited to try it but it feels like your just putting cool lotion on your face. It doesn't help with the make up staying power at all. You keep on wanting to put more on thinking it will change but it doesn't. I'll keep using it since i have it but i will not purchase it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Makes my skin look fresh!
By New York Artist
from New York
I use this everyday! It always makes my skin look fresh and ready for the day.

Love the way it feels!
from Kalamazoo MI
It was reccommended that I choose this primer as I am over 65. It goes on beautifully and make-up glides over it and I don't seem to need as much foundation to get a smooth finished look.
I have tried to "save money" by foregoing the primer in my routine. This primer does so much more than just hold the foundation or tinted moisturizer in place. It pampers my skin and keeps it from flaking in the cold Minnesota winters. It feels light and non-greasy. My skin drinks it in and feels refreshed! I don't go without primer any more.

Excellent Hydrating Primer
Feels wonderful on the skin and you only need to use a small amount. It did keep my LM tinted moisturizer and concealer on for the day. I wanted a product that would nourish my skin and keep my makeup on and I found it in this primer. I will purchase this product again.

I liked it until it separated
I was very happy with this product until it started separating. Now every time I go to use it, water pours out of the tube. I'm not about to pay $32.00 for water! It's too bad because it could be so much better. I think this product needs to be re formulated before selling any more of it. It's basically a waste of your money.
Perfect for winter dryness
from Denver, CO
I switch to this primer each winter as my skin gets drier. I tend to break out easily, and adding oil to my regime can make me break out or make my makeup slide off by the end of the day. This adds the extra moisture I need in the winter without creating an oil slick, breakouts, or sliding makeup.
obvious different w/ or w/o primier. with this primier, foundation stays all day long without showing a lot of oil of face.
Good for Oily Skin - read this review
from Houston, TX
Beleive it or not, I have very oly skin, and yet during the winter months I find myself using this primer. As in the winter time, I find my skin may dry out a little bit, and this one helps me stay hydrated, and does not cause my skin to look Oly. Once winter is over, I go back to using the Oil Free. If you have oly skin, I recommed you to try this at least for a few days, ask for a sample and you will love it!
