My Experience with MUA Skin Define Hydro Primer:

The Hydro Primer by MUA seemed a pretty promising product from the way it looked. It comes in tub packaging with transparent body and white lid. There is a protective shield to the tub which helps avoiding spillage. The details about the product are mentioned at the base of the tub.

The texture is fun to begin with. It is like jelly water. It is completely transparent and feels cool when applied on to the face. It spreads okay-ish on the face but dipping the finger every time to dig out the product is slightly bothersome. The fragrance is artificial but not strong; it stays on for a while before vanishing completely.

I got this a while back and I was travelling with it. Honestly speaking I did not see any difference to my makeup with this on. This is just an addition to the makeup routine without really reaping any benefit out of it. I feel applying aloe vera gel instead would give some benefits to the skin. Neither it evens out pores or fine lines nor does it extend the makeup wear-time. I would not repurchase or recommend it to anybody as adding a few more bucks would bring us some of the best primers available in the market. P.S – it did not perform well on my mom or sister as I pushed them to try it during the trip.

Pros of MUA Skin Define Hydro Primer:

• Initial cooling sensation.
• Consistency is good.

Cons of MUA Skin Define Hydro Primer:

• Tub packaging.
• Artificial fragrance.
• Does nothing to the skin.
• Feel sticky initially.
• Expensive for the quantity.

IMBB Rating – 1/5

  1. I looked at the third image and thought the tub is empty. 😛 It actually looked so interesting and promising though.

  2. Even I was confused that the tub is empty. Rashmita di, I saw it online and was tempted to buy. Your review saved 900 bucks!

  3. This looks like such a unique product as I have never seen a primer that is so clear like water. Hope it did work 🙁 But thanks anyway Rashmita 🙂
