The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer review

I assume that, by now, you all might have been well aware of my love for the brand The Ordinary. I was lucky enough to grab few products before the brand went crazy and hiked their minimum order price from 50$ to 250$. I’ll be talking about all of those products in near future, starting today with the first product: The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone primer.

The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer

Price: The best part about this amazing brand is its affordability. This primer is priced at 7.90$ which is approx. 508Rs. We get 30ml of product.

The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer

Packaging: It comes in a very plain grey coloured opaque plastic tube with a white plastic cap which shuts tightly. This is quite travel friendly and spill proof.

The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Bis-Isobutyl PPG-20 Crosspolymer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Isohexadecane, Hexamethyldisiloxane, Isoceteth-20, Polysilicone-11, Tocopherol, Polysorbate 60, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin.

This primer is oil free, alcohol free, nuts free, cruelty free and completely vegan.

The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer

Texture: The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer has a texture of a thick cream which is a little siliconey. It doesnot give a slimy/slippery feeling which many primers tend to give. I use less than half a pea size amount on my face daily.  I have oily-acne prone skin and this has not irritated it at all. It has mild hydrating properties because of which it doesn’t cling on to dry patches on the skin. This is going to suit all skin types! It easily gets absorbed and gives an initial mild cooling sensation when applied. I top it with a compact powder and my makeup is done!

The only downside is its fragrance. It smells of plastic and rubber. Not at all pleasant! But the smell doesn’t linger for long.

Efficacy: This primer doesn’t blur out the pores as it claims. But it smooths out the skin and prevents texture from being seen. Also, this doesn’t aggravate oil production and hence helps in keeping makeup stay in place for long.

Without this, my foundation starts showcasing texture on my skin after a while, but when this primer is applied, the foundation stays put and my skin appears even and smooth for a long time.

The verdict:

Needless to say, I am in love with this primer. It is so travel friendly that I can easily throw it anywhere in my bag and neednot worry about any leakage. I’ve been using this for more than a month now and it has not irritated me at all. It holds the makeup in place without feeling heavy or tacky. This little tube is going to last me long as a very little amount is needed for the application.

The only con is its availability at present. You’ll have to get it online by paying some shipping charges or convince your friends (who are staying abroad) to get this for you.🤷🏻‍♀️

As per my discussion with the brand, they are expanding their market and are looking forward to make their products available in the Asian market as well. so let’s hope for the best!🤞🏻

I definitely recommend this to everyone. My favourite primer used to be the Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer but I’ve not even touched it since I started using The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer. I love how this brand gives a luxurious feeling at such an affordable price! I am in love with The Ordinary!❤️

Until next time, stay beautiful & keep smiling!

  1. Not looking for a new primer at the moment.But this seems interesting.U are tempting me to get myself Ordinary Skincare stuffs.
    Looking forward to your reviews on other items by this brand
    Much love~Akriti❤

      Thank you so much Akriti for stopping by! 😘😘And yes, I am head over heels in love with this brand. It has amazing products with affordable price. 😘😘

  2. Loved the Review. After paying rediculous custom duty on colorpop I am definitely not ordering….but am gonna ask someone who is travelling to get some Ordinary for me. I am hearing really good things about their foundation as well.

    • Bhumika says:

      How much did you pay? Also, if your parcel has value less than 2000₹, your parcel will not be held at customs, will reach you early and you will not have to pay any duty! 🤗

      • Hira says:

        THEn we pnly need to pay shipping charges? Thats all if order value is less than 2000₹? And also where did you buy this from?

    • Bhumika says:

      As far as I think, primer alone cannot blur out pores, no matter how good it is. But when a primer is topped with the right makeup, pores blur out to a great extent. This is what happens with me!! Thanks so much dear for stopping by. 🙂

  3. I am using L’Oréal primer and kinda not impressed with it much 😑 I need a primer which is hydrating enough to make my skin glowy but not oily! I loved the fact that it doesn’t cling on to dry patches, I seriously need to try this product 😍 wonderful review 😚

    • Bhumika says:

      This brand is awesome Anamika!! I really wish they come to India soon! This is the best and cheapest primer I’ve tried so far!! 🤗

  4. Pooja says:

    I love how you always try out different brands!! I had never heard of the ordinary till date, but now I know that this is an amazing skincare. All thanks to you. 😘

    • Bhumika says:

      Haha! I know. I keep on trying new brands because I get bored of the old ones very easily! I hope the review was of some help to u Pooja. 🤗

    • Bhumika says:

      This is a relatively new brand Mrinalini. I really wish they come to India soon. Their products are so effective and very affordable!!

  5. I’ve been loving The Ordinary products too, their range is simple yet so affordable. I haven’t tried the primer yet, but it looks like something I might try the next time I make some The Ordinary purchases! Shame that it has a slight plastic/rubber scent to it initially though. Have you tried the Maybelline Baby Skin primer? It is also very affordable and smooths the skin out really nicely!

    • Bhumika says:

      No!! Haven’t tried it yet. It’s not officially available in India hence is not affordable over here! But would def give it a try next time!!🤗

    • Bhumika says:

      Exactly!! I even wrote to them and they’ve stated that they are going to reduce it soon!! Keeping fingers crossed! 🤞🏻

    I am so glad I found this review. I have been eyeing this primer for a while but never bought it because I thought it would not have been good for oily skin. Now that I know it would be, I would not hesitate to purchase it.
