    Good first impression!

    I havne't been using this primer very long, as I just recieved it to test out. So this review is just a first impression.
    The primer sinks in very fast which is nice. You don't have to wait very long after applying it to put your makeup on. I have normal/combination skin, which this winter has gotten drier, but normally I end up a little oily by the end of the day. Using this hasn't increased that oiliness, so that is a nice bonus!
    the product itself has a very light scent, so it shouldn't bother most people. You do have to give it a good shake to get it mixed up properly, but you need very little, so the bottle should last a fairly long time(which is nice because its not cheap).
    I already use a serum earlier in my skincare routine, so I don't need the serum benefits of this primer, but it doesnt hurt!
    I will probably come back to flush out this review more once I have used it longer than a few days. So far no breakouts!

    Aveeno maxglow serum & primer

    I really wanted to love this product. It was ok but not anything super great.
    I hated how messy it was! The liquid gets all over the cap and top of the bottle where it comes out which is annoying.
    I also feel the price point for a drugstore brand is a bit high, in my area it's like $30. I feel like you can buy nicer serums that work better for that price.
    My makeup did transfer so I don't find the primer part works the best but it could have just been the combo with my foundation.
    I also found my skin was still dry after using it but I do have very dry skin. I had to start using a moisturizer in addition to the serum.
    I will say I love how even my skin tone is while using it! I have a lot of redness and that was definitely toned down.
    I also loved how it makes your skin glow without looking oily! It gives a really subtly pretty glow without looking really greasy.
    In a pinch I think it's a good option, especially since it's easily available at the drugstore but it isn't the best one I've ever tried.

    Un sérum agréable à utiliser

    J utilise régulièrement un sérum mais c est le premier qu il faut appliquer juste avant le maquillage....j ai beaucoup aimé. S étale bien et on sent notre peau souple. Seul bémol.....la bouteille. Comme il faut bien agiter avant d utiliser quand on débouche la bouteille du produit en sort et on perd du produit. Mais un bon produit.

    Serum & primer that works well for dry skin!

    I tried Aveeno Positively Radiant MaxGlow Serum & Primer for free as part of Chickadvisor Review Club. I was excited to try a serum and primer in one, removing another step in my makeup routine. I have dry skin and this serum moisturizes my face and gives it a dewy look (I could see this be a bit too oily for someone with combination skin). The primer in one dries to a smooth base so I can quickly apply my foundation and makeup. The one thing I didn't like about the product was that it does get on my hands, cap and lid when applying. So it can get a bit messy. Overall it is a good product, but might be too messy for regular use.

    it did not work for me

    I was excited to try the Aveeno positively radiant maxglow serum+primer when i received it from Chick advisor but I will say i was not impressed at all. I am a big fan of serums and have tried a few but to find one which says it can be used a primer got me pretty excited. However, I began noticing a few prickly heat looking breakouts after few uses and so i discontinued. One thing i liked about it is the fact that it did tone down my moisturizer by reducing the shine, and rather replaced it with a more natural glow. I am on the shiny but dry skin side and so, a primer that keeps my skin matt is essential and this did not do the trick for me. I also do not really like the consistency or texture as it felt watery and more like diluted aloe vera gel. But i liked that it easily absorbed into my skin while i pat. I wish it had a dropper to make dispensing the product alot better. I would recommend to anyone with normal skin.I like that it provided moisture to my dry skin always.

    2 in 1 Serum + Primer = GENIUS!!!!

    The Aveeno Max Glow Positively Radiant Serum + Primer makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. It’s a great concept, I love the fact that it’s a 2 in 1. It can be a little oily, but with my dry skin in the winter it’s perfect for me and makes for an incredibly smooth canvas for applying makeup. I suggest washing your face with the Aveeno Max Glow Positively Radiant Micellar Gel Cleanser, moisturizer with any moisturizer, and then use the Aveeno Serum + Primer. You’re skin is then ready for a flawless makeup application. This comes with a lot of product for the price you pay. High end skin care products at drug store price.

    Love the formula, Hate the packaging

    Thanks to ChickAdvisor for providing this for me to try! #gotitforfree

    I love the formula of this serum and primer. While, I don't put on too much makeup these days, it really does make my skin look great.

    I have taken to pairing it on before my sunscreen and have found this to be a great combo!

    A smooth finish to your beauty regimen!

    This product surprised me, it appears to be oil based and separates in the bottle, so it has to be shaken before use. It's a thin liquid but feels smooth and moisturizing going on. I felt like it was a nice final step after moisturizing and it definitely added to making my skin glow. I haven't worn makeup over it yet but it is advertised as a primer as well. With how smooth and soft my skin feels after using it, I feel it would make a really nice priner.

    Mixed Feelings!

    I have mixed feelings about this product. The first problem is the price point. It costs $31.99 for 45ml at my local pharmacy. Unless this product is incredible; that price is far too high for a drugstore product. If I were to spend that much on a primer, I would likely be going to a high end store like Sephora. Second, while this product makes a great serum, I did not find it an effective makeup primer. It’s nice and hydrating when you put it on and it gives you a beautiful radiant glow. It dries down fairly quickly. I have tried putting a high end foundation over it and it looked nice, but my makeup transferred very bad. I tried with a high end BB cream, same thing. I also tried both not setting and setting my makeup with a high end powder and it still transferred. It did not seem to hold onto my makeup well at all, but I really think it’s fine on its own as a part of skincare maybe at night. That’s how I will use it, but I wouldn’t repurchase this item as the cons outweigh the pros.

    Love how soft it leaves my skin, I would definitely purchase

    I recieved this product to try from chickadvisor. I love the scent, it is quite soft and not overwhelming. Did not leave my face feeling sticky like some other serums that I've used. Definitely left my face feeling soft. The only thing that I didn't like is that it was hard to gage how much product was going to come out, either too much product came out or not enough. I would still purchase this product but it might be easier to use if there was some sort of dropper to help deliver the product.
