Outstanding product!

Comments about hydrablur primer:

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

By 

from Colorado

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.

Fantastic Primer!!

By 

from Colesburg, IA

I used to use Bare Minerals primer and loved the lightweight feel of it. I received this primer in a sample bag from a friend's spa and WOW! This helps cover up my large pores, my skin doesn't look oily mid-day, and my makeup lasts! I just placed an order today for a full size tube.

Feels great but color is strange

By 

from Burlington,

I love the way this makes my skin feel, but it has a strange color tint. I have very fair skin and this strange color stands out in certain spots on my face. After I apply (with my fingertips), my hands are orange-ish. I prefer more translucent primers.

I like hydrablur primer a lot!

By 

from Albany, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about hydrablur primer:

I am 67 years old. I don't like heavy makeup at anytime. I want to look as natural as possible without showing all my imperfections. The hydrablur primer is a great start. I can wear it alone. My skin and I look great. You must have a good Dermalogica Skin Care treatment in order to have good results with hydrablur primer. It won't cover up uncared for skin. It's not a cover up/concealer. Hydrablur is a great product, the results are a nice smooth illumination of your face.

I love this to keep my concealer from creasing under my eyes

By 

from PDX

I received a sample of this, and discovered it is the best primer over eye cream to keep my concealer from creasing during the day - this helps hide the fine lines that are appearing around my eyes and really keeps my under eyes looking smooth all day!

My favorite!

By 

from Tulsa, OK

I refused to wear primer before I came across hydra blur primer. This product is so amazing that I sometimes only wear this after I cleanse my face & do not put any make up on. It has been my go to & I am obsessed. My skin is left silky & smooth. I absolutely love it.

  • Q:

    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.

      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.

  • Q:

    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 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.

  • Q:

    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.

      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.
