'Hydra Veil' rehydrating gel 30ml is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasts a long time I don't normally spend much on cosmetics, but I received a sample pot with a perfume purchase, and was really impressed. Even the small sample lasted for ages, as you only need a pea sized blob of the gel to cover your whole face. It is not greasy, and lasts all day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hydrating and foundation goes on flawlessly I really enjoyed this foundation, I have dry skin and this reduced the dry spots on my face so you could not see them through my foundation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for dry skin and a getting natural finish I bought the full sized one of these after finishing a sample. What I like most is that it's nice and hydrating (it says it can double as a moisturiser, but I have extremely dry skin so I still use a separate moisturiser under it), and I can't feel it sitting on top of my skin. It is slightly tacky immediately after I put it on, but it dries down. It's very lightweight, and doesn't make any claims about filling pores or blurring marks. I use a light-medium coverage foundation, and my goal with my base makeup is really just to even out my skin tone while keeping everything as natural-looking as possible. This primer works well for that because it just keeps your skin hydrated and creates a base for your makeup to sit on without creating a noticeable extra layer, like some thicker, silicone primers can. It has a screw lid, and an extra internal lid on a hinge so the product can't leak out or get into the threads. It also comes with a little spatula so you don't have to stick your fingers in it. The price is okay for the amount you get, there was less in the jar than I expected. It does spread out pretty well though, so I expect it to last long enough. I have sensitive skin with pores that get blocked pretty easily, and I haven't had a problem with this so far. Overall, I really like it and I'd recommend it for people with dry-very dry skin, especially if you're not going for full coverage. Because it'd slightly sticky when applied, I'd expect it to work best with liquid or cream foundations (I use a liquid one).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gel that's not wet Loved this product, I feel when you apply it with a brush it go on better than if you just rub it on, my skin looks better and not as red on my cheeks, I was a bit unsure how long it would stay wet as its a bell but it drys almost immediately and I think tightens as it drys. I would buy this again, it's on my Christmas list too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Primer I was given a sample of Hydra Veil in the Illamasqua shop and was so impressed that I had to buy the full sized pot. As someone with oily/combination skin I was worried that it would make my skin too greasy but this is not the case at all. It seems to balance out my fairly uneven skin and leaves it looking fresh and dewy. Best of all, it doesn't cause any breakouts. I've had a few people ask what Foundation in wearing since using Hydra Veil and comments about how nice my skin looks. I've tried it with a number of foundations (Estée Lauder, Illamasqua and Nars) and have found that all of them sit beautifully on it and last a full day. I find it most helpful under my eyes, where I have quite dry skin, as it really helps my concealer to look fresh and dewy. I wouldn't usually spend so much on a primer but took advantage of the duty free discount promotion and would happily buy at full price. As you only need a pea sized amount it should lost a long time as well. This is my first Illamasqua product and I'm really impressed, I'd definitely purchase again.
