Product Review | Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer


We have been hearing great things about Milk Makeup’s newest primer, the Hydro Grip Primer ($30 USD), and we wanted to test it for ourselves to see if the hype was actually true. This is a hydrating, makeup gripping primer which is formulated with hemp-derived cannabis seed extract and blue agave extract. It helps hydrate your skin all day long. Cannabis has been growing in popularity in the beauty community and many makeup and skincare brands have been using it in their products claiming that it is great for hydrating and soothing the skin.

How to use: Squeeze 1-2 pumps of primer on the back of your hand and then blend it onto clean skin. For best results you should wait at least one minute before you apply your makeup, so that the product can be activated for best results. You can wear it alone to give you a glassy skin look or you can apply makeup over it and it will give you a beautiful smooth application that will last all day.

Our thoughts: We have been trying this product and we love it. It actually helps our makeup last longer. It is designed for all skin types, but keep in mind that it is a very hydrating formula so if you have extremely oily skin you might not love it. We tried it on different skin types and it worked great on all skin types especially normal to oily skin types. Pores actually looked filled and the way foundation went over the primer was just amazing!

This primer is comparable to some of the most expensive primers on the market. This primer does have a bit of a weird smell, but it wasn’t too overwhelming for us. The best part about this primer for us is that it is silicone free and oil free.

There are 2 sizes available: a 10ml travel size ($15 USD) and a 45ml full size ($30 USD) both available at Sephora and
