Best primer ever!


I love this stuff. Yes it's a bit pricey compared to some other brands but it's silky smooth, makes my skin look nice immediately and my makeup looks flawless applied over it.

South Carolina


So smooth and really works!


I feel like I can see immediate results with this primer. It's smooth and soft, and really does blur the lines I'm beginning to see on my forehead. This is going to be my permanent primer. Love it!



Great for Oily Skin


I've been looking around for a good primer under makeup for a while now, and I'm so glad my friend recommended Dermalogica. I finally found a primer that keeps my skin looking matte and not oily! I'm wearing it for the first time right now, and I'm finishing up my 9 hour workday, and haven't even blotted my face with a tissue! I'm so impressed. It comes in a long skinny bottle, and I used a quarter size amount to cover my whole face. It goes on smoothly, blends right in, and doesn't leave any streaks. I will definitely be buying again and recommending to others.

I prefer the skin perfect primer


I got this as a freebie and tried a few times. I find that it smells weird and leaves a kind of chunky residue. Provides no sun protection and I see absolutely no upside with this product. Will stick with the Skin perfect SPF 30 primer.

My skin looks flawless with this product on under my makeup.



Great primer


I use this under the perfecting primer and love it

Manchester nh




so good and it takes the shine away especially if you use oil before your moisturizer. It also covers your pores amazingly!!! My fav primer for dermalogica

Great Primer!


I received this as a free sample, and I have been pleasantly surprised. I'm not normally a fan of primers (they never seem to make a difference for me) but this one actually does. My skin looks and feels so smooth! I'd like to try Dermalogica's other primer too, then I'll definitetly be purchasing a full size of one of them for my daily routine.



Outstanding product!


I received Hydrablur as a free sample. I was a little bit leery because I am sometimes allergic to such products, but this cream is amazing and actually beneficial to my face. It minimizes wrinkles (I am 79.) and covers "age spots" so that foundation makeup is not necessary. Love it!!

Lovely Lightweight Addition


I've been using Dermalogica products for over 15 years now and am excited to try new products as they are developed. I initially received a sample of Hydrablur Primer with my regular order and set it aside, as I've been using the Skinperfect Primer for quite some time with great results. On a day when my schedule was pretty packed and my skin was showing some fatigue, I took a break to mist my fact with the Antioxidant Hydramist, then add a couple dots of Dynamic Skin Recovery. I picked up the Hydrablur Primer sample and used it around my mouth area, sides of my nose and just a tiny dot under each eye. What an amazing difference! It smoothed fine lines and softened a couple of larger pores, making my skin look overall less tired and smoothed. I take very good care of my skin, using Dermalogica products from start to finish. I'll be fifty this year and live in a dry climate, so I'm careful to moisturize throughout the day. What's so nice about having Hydrablur Primer as another option is that I can use it over light foundation or concealer without it affecting the color balance. I have eastern european, ivory skin, if that helps others to know what this primer compliments. For me, it provides a bit of a shimmery glow when used last on top of other products. As with most Dermalogica products, a little goes a long way. Try it out sometime as a brightening smoother.

Is this a good primer for oily skin? I try to stay away from "moisturizing" primers as my skin does not need more moisture. I'm currently using dermal clay cleanser and active moist as my moisturizer, just wondering if I should try this one or a different primer? All primers mattify oil for a little while...but if it's too moisturizing I am shiney again within an hour or so. Living in such a humid city it is so difficult to control excessive oil!


Hello Kenzi, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Hydrablur is really popular. If you are excessively oily, you can use it on top of Oil Control Lotion or Oil Free Matte SPF 30. Kind Regards, Bernadette

If someone has a mushroom allergy would they be able to use this product?


Hello Libby, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. No testing has yet been done. However, if you know you are allergic to an ingredient, it is best to avoid to product. Perhaps you may like Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Does the Dermalogica Hydrablur primer have any moisturizing properties? I love the way it feels on my skin and I find having the skin smoothing on as well feels too heavy so I just wanted to know if just using the hydrablur primer is enough of a moisturizer and barrier to external factors.


Hi Saadiya, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Hydrablur is a makeup primer. Please use a moisturizer like Active Moist underneath. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Do you make a blurring green primer or does the redness relief primer have blurring qualities? I have a lot of redness but need pore minimizing and blurring.


Hi Dawna, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Hydrablur creates a soft focus blur effect. It is like an Instagram filter in a tube. Redness Relief Primer SPF 20 is a color correcting primer. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I have oily, acne prone skin. Looking to choose between the Hydrablur primer and the SkinPerfect primer and was curious which one would be the better option. I don't like wearing a lot of makeup in the summer, so usually wear a moisturizer, sunscreen, and then a tone-adjusting bb cream for redness. Currently using PreCleanse, Clearing Skin Wash, Active Moist, and the Overnight Clearing Gel as my other Dermologica products.


Hello Callie, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Hydrablur Primer is ideal for dehydrated or combination or normal skin. Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30 is for aging skin or skin that lacks oil. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Does this contain SPF? I'm wondering if I should purchase an additional facial sunscreen or if this works in combo.


Hello Sarah, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product does not contain SPF. Please wear it on top of your favorite SPF moisturizer. I personally enjoy Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 under makeup. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Does this have a color to it like a bb cream? If so, what is the shade? I have very fair skin and not sure how it'll look on my skin.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product is a colorless primer. It is for all skin tones. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi, can I use the hydrablur primer if I'm pregnant? I'm also using Active moist and the Intensive eye repair. Thanks.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product contains retinol. Therefore, it is not recommended to use during pregnancy. You might prefer Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30 or Redness Relief Primer SPF 20. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this product gluten free? I See that it had paid in it but not the clarification if there is gluten specifically.


Dear Nieve, Thank you for your question and interest in Dermalogica. After completing Gluten Analysis testing on all of our wheat containing products the conclusion is that only one is suggested to be avoided by a gluten intolerant or Celiac. This is Extra Firming Booster. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this primer recommended for acne prone skin? No where does it say that this is non-comedogenic.


Hi Maki, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. We do not use the term non comedogenic because what can clog on person's pores, may not clog another person's pores. That being said, Hydrablur Primer is for all skin types. People with oily and acne skin particularly love it. Kind Regards, Bernadette
