Review: When these came out towards the end of 2018, I wanted to get them but I opted on purchasing the 3-in-1 Primer Water Setting Spray. After seeing Jasmine on YouTube using this primer, I was intrigued. I was especially curious about being a water-based primer. The Cucumber scent is lovely. I originally wanted the Coconut one but since I had a few bottles of the Coconut 3-in-1 Primer Water Setting Spray, I decided to purchase this one. Typical to most Wet N' Wild Beauty products, this did not come in a box but instead it had a protective seal. The product is a green (like a green matcha tea latte color) colored gel and mousse hybrid texture. Once you mix or apply the product, you will immediately feel the watery consistency and it is quite cooling on the skin.
I love how it sat on the skin and applied however this did not work in combination with the L'Oreal 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation as it made the foundation slip and slide due to the primer's watery consistency. However, I do use this product as a skincare add on. I prefer to use it on its own to give the skin extra moisture or in combination with the E.L.F.+ Coco Glow Moisturizer.
Overall, in terms of its priming properties, this did not work for me as it made my foundation move. However, as a skincare add on or in combination with a slightly thick moisturizer, it is phenomenal. My only concern about repurchasing this primer is it is so small in size. If I used it every day as a part of my skincare routine morning and night, I would literally have to buy this every week. If Wet N' Wild made this into a 4oz tube and sold it for $10, it would be totally worth it.
