Paul & Joe Moisturizing Foundation Primer in 01

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Paul & Joe Moisturizing Foundation Primer is a botanical-rich moisturizing primer that locks in hydration and leaves skin comfortable, soft, smooth and supple all day long. It offers lightweight, and sheer, coverage coupled with a  gorgeous luminous glow. It evens skin tone and extends the life of your foundations and tinted moisturizers. Shade 01, which is featured here, is intended for fair complexions with pink undertones. It offers very sheer coverage, and once blended it disappears– therefore it will not alter the color of your foundation. It has no detectable scent, even though the ingredients list fragrance.
According to Paul & Joe,

Paul & Joe Beauté Moisturizing Foundation Primer does more than just prep skin for makeup application. Its superior formulation corrects complexion for clear, naturally radiant skin. Featuring the same loved texture and finish of past Paul & Joe primers, the Moisturizing Foundation Primer S touts a higher concentration of orange flower water to condition skin, as well as two additional types of sodium hyaluronate. 

This all amounts to superior hydration for dry skin and balanced moisture retention for oily skin.

With three universal shades to choose from, this primer is suited to correct any skin care concerns and enhance overall skin tone.

Formulated with five natural plant extracts, three types of hyaluronic acid, spherical powder and various oils, this primer not only conditions, it firmly clings to the skin and foundation, absorbs excessive sebum, prevents makeup from turning dull, and provides gentle coverage that lasts all day for radiant looking skin.
Directions: Before applying foundation, take the desired amount (about 1 pump) onto the palm and spread evenly over the entire face. Clean the dispenser nozzle after each use and cap firmly.

  1. Ooooh this sounds fantastic! I’d love to try the L one and the shade 2!

    1. It really is such a wonderful primer, and it is so moisturizing and it feels fantastic on the skin!

  2. The Foundation Primer in Fair would be perfect for me. I couldn't wear it on its own, but under foundation I think it would work well for me. Nice!

    1. I think that would be the right shade for you, Allison. It doesn't impart much color, and leans more sheer, and therefore I assume most people would prefer to use it as a primer under their foundation or tinted moisturizer. I do find that I can wear it alone, if I really just want light coverage. It is such a lovely moisturizing primer from such a wonderful brand.

  3. Your description about the formulation and key ingredients of this Primer is informative and helpful for readers who are considering it to add in their skincare routine. It's evident that you've thoroughly tested and researched the product, providing valuable insights into its performance and benefits.

    1. Thank you, Elenor. It really is a very lovely primer!
