Only a few stars ..
Only a few stars I’m afraid as I found this product didn’t live up to the hype , I found it greasy and did not absorb well into the skin , leaving me with a shiny t zone .. as for the primer element of this product , I feel it made no difference what so ever When applied before my makeup.

very disappointed
WOW I thought 24hour moisture. OMG how I was disappointed. I didn't like the feel it was very watery going on, it seemed to absorb after a long while, but when I applied my make up it seemed to peel off I had wipe it again. It left my skin dryer than before I applied it. I am so pleased I got it for half price. I will just go back to the original Nivea and moist skin.

Don’t use as a primer
Brought this to use as a primer as I have extremely dry skin and my other primer was a no go. After putting it on I had high hopes as my skin was so soft and there was no dry skin in sight. However when putting makeup on, it does not blend out at all! My dry skin looked worse! It would probably be good if you don’t actually have dry skin and your skin lets you use a makeup brush but for me I have to use a sponge so no good for me :(

very pleased I chose this!

I'd not used this formulation before but like Nivea products so thought I'd give it a try. I have sensitive skin that's a bit on the dry side and normally use a cream-based moisturiser. This is gel-based and smooths in very quickly and easily. I don't need to use much as a little goes a long way. What I do like especially is that it doesn't leave my skin sticky like other moisturisers do. My skin feels really smooth and dry to the touch. I can understand why it would be an ideal primer for foundation or BB cream. As a moisturiser, I'd recommend it and will buy it again. It has a pleasant light fragrance.
