Hello everybody, I apologize that this post was not out sooner. I have had a busy couple of weeks, but I am finally back at it and it feels good. My birthday was last week, 27 years old (almost 30, it is crazy!) and my present to myself was shopping in Spokane with one of my besties, Sarah.
When Milk Makeup released the Hydro Grip Primer I was intrigued immediately. I mean their marketing was on point, how could you not want to try it! As I have said in previous posts my skin tends to run on the drier side, so anything that has hydrating properties…I want to try. Luckily our shopping excursion came at a great time and I was able to pick up a travel size bottle of it at Sephora.
My initial thoughts on this primer is that it is a lot tackier than expected. I was anticipating it to be very hydrating but instead it is more gripping, than hydrating. That being said my makeup has been staying in place for a lot longer than when I was using the FLOWER hydrating primer. But, personally I would have liked it to be more hydrating and because of this I will probably not be investing in the larger size of this product.
I will say though if you really like a grippy primer than this is worth trying! Not only has my makeup stayed in place longer, but I have had less issues with transferring (see “Daily Makeup Routine”). Smell wise, it doesn’t really smell like anything which is good. Although I like and appreciate a nice fresh scent, for sensitive skin scents can be a cause of outbreaks. Also, no smell is better then a bad smell lol.
In conclusion, this primer is really good…I just wish it was more hydrating. Tell me your thoughts. If you have tried this product, do you like it? Do you not like it? I want to hear! Leave a comment below.
