Product Review -- The Ordinary High-Spreadibility Fluid Primer

I have enlarged pores and dry skin.

That doesn't seem to be a combination that most makeup companies understand.

Well, at least in my experience.

Most pore-filling primer are designed to mattifying too, while most hydrating primers don't do much to fill in the pores.

I can make do by using a pore-filling primer on my nose and cheeks and a hydrating formula on the rest of my face, but it would be nice to have a single product that could do it all.

That's why I was so interested to try The Ordinary's High-Spreadibility Fluid Primer.

There has been plenty of buzz about The Ordinary's skincare products -- with good reason, in my opinion. I've been using many of them for about 8 months now, and I don't think my skin has ever looked better -- so it's exciting to see them dip their toe in the cosmetics end of the pool (they just came out with foundations too).

Like many of the brand's skincare products, the High-Spreadibility Fluid Primer comes in a glass medicine dropper style jar, which contains 1 ounce of product.

Like most pore-filling primers, it contains silicones so it helps soften the look of pores and fine lines. However, it is a hydrating formula as well, so you don't have to worry about your foundation looking cakey or patchy in dry spots. A little goes a long way with this primer, though, so be careful not to apply too much.

In terms of finish, the High-Spreadibility Fluid Primer definitely provides more of a dewy finish, which is often a nice look with dry skin. In fact, The Ordinary even recommends applying it to your skin as a last step in your skincare routine even if you're not wearing makeup for a non-oily, naturally dewy look.

As its name implies, the primer also provides a nice, smooth base so foundation spreads more easily over it.

While the primer is somewhat hydrating, it's still important to apply a good moisturizer to your skin beneath it. And if you have extremely dry skin, this probably isn't the best option for you. My skin is dry to normal, and it is a perfect fit.

Best of all, it only costs $7.90 on The Ordinary website and at Beautylish.
