Good Molecules Silicone-Free Moisturizer Primer REVIEW
Hi Jeaniez, and welcome back! Good Molecules just released their FIRST EVER primer! This was quite exciting to me, since I love when skincare meets makeup. For me, it’s the perfect melody that creates harmony. In today’s review, I go over the product itself, some stats, key benefits, and my experience with the product. Mind you, I also included a tutorial, where I briefly try on the primer, too!
Good Molecules Silicone-Free Priming Moisturizer
First off, this primer is $14.00. I think that’s pretty decent for a bridge between low end to high end, and well within the range of other Good Molecules products.
According to Beautylish, it’s main benefits are to “Smooth, hydrate, and prep your skin for makeup with this lightweight daily moisturizer formulated with a natural silicone alternative.” Upon further digging, Good Molecules wanted to create a primer for their customers. Although GM (Good Molecules) blends science with skincare, sometimes the customer beats out all odds. According to science, silicones do no harm to skin, according to consumers, the story is different.

Having used this primer only 3 days now, I cannot give you Jeaniez a FULL REVIEW. However, what I can do is explain my first impressions! First off, I like the bottle, it’s sleek, modern, and SO Good Molecules. I love how the pump is long, thus less possibility of excess back-up, and I love how the bottle is rather thin, not thick. Makes it easier to carry around!
On my first try using the product, I applied one pump to the back of my hand, then spread the creamy consistency from the center of my face, whipped out to my hairline. This has NO SMELL, and has a semi-thick consistency. Now, since I have dry skin, this is a dream come true, however I definitely feel this is more of a Fall-Winter geared primer! The foundation I used for my first test trial was the Hourglass Vanish Stick Foundation, which tends to be creamy. I felt my foundation blended in beautiful, but it was hard to see a difference, since the product is already hydrating.
On my second day, I went in with the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Swan, which is my all time favorite foundation! Not too slick, not too dry. The primer feels like skin care, and not much like a primer…which I do like because that makes it seem invisible. There is no tackiness, just a creamy like consistency. I felt my Too Faced looked supercharged and VERY dewy, which was lovely to see! I think this had more of an impact with the Too Faced, than my Hourglass. Since I’m very expressive, I was happy to see my smile lines were a bit blurred, due to the primer “moving” with my face. IF you have oily skin, I can see this not being for you, however.
Final thoughts are hard. I can’t make a review decision YET until I’ve really worked with the product for two weeks at least! This will be updated. In the meantime the initial trials were wonderful, especially since New York has been so dry, and the primer really moisturized my skin. Above is my Too Faced Gingerbread Extra Spicy Palette makeup tutorial, however at 9:21 about, I begin demo’ing the primer!
At this point I’m rating the primer a 6.4/10.
