answer 1
This seemed to dry my oily/combo skin out a bit with daily use. You may want to add a heavier nighttime moisturizer and be sure to exfoliate regularly if you plan on wearing the primer everyday.

I have really dry skin sometimes and it does help! I put it on a little heavier where my skin is most dry.

I have noticed there is a decent moisturizing effect to using these primers. I put a moisturizer under it and then put the primer over that. I have combination skin where my T-zone is an oil slick but my cheeks and parts of my forehead have ugly flaky dry patches....You would never know with this primer. It just smooths everything out and lets my foundation just glide over my large pores and rough spots and seems to control my oil well. I love it.

answer 5
I don't see it helping with dry skin. I had to exfoliate and moisturizer lightly before use.

I think it would be okay for dry skin as long as you apply a generous amount of the serum on, let it soak then the primer. This way provides a smooth canvas for dry skin as long as you don't really buff your makeup on you should be fine.

answer 7
I think the serum will. My skin gets dry like that and it does help, especially in terms of setting dry skin up for non-patchy foundation application.

I have dry combination skin that gets super dry in the winter and it seems togo on smooth.

answer 9
Maybe if your dry/flaky skin is being controlled with a weekly regiment of exolianting and daily moisturizer. This product is silky smooth and velvet it can definitely smooth out and even out dry skin, but you must properly moisturize.

answer 10
I think yes!
I have dry skin around my temples, sides of mouth, nose...
and the No.28 primer does wonders when massaged into dry areas on the skin.

answer 11
It did help for me. My skin gets drier the moment the season changes, and despite facial oils added to my moisturizer, nothing was helping. The Sephora associate recommended combining the two for additional benefits, and it truly does work. Note: use the No. 28 (small one) very sparingly. You can just use the Veil Mineral Primer if your skin isn't overly dry. But boy, does it work -- hope it does for you!

answer 1
No, I was also confused about this. One is good as a face serum or when you are looking for a more natural look. The cream is if you would like the make up to last longer. I personally always use the cream. Just be aware, it may dry your skin a little

While both can be used together (Serum, followed by Primer), you can use the Serum at night and the Primer during day. Enjoy!

Two Questions, Please!
Your help is needed, Ladies. Although, I have used numerous brands of primer in the past, should BOTH primers be applied PRIOR to makeup? If so, which of the two should be applied first after my moisturizer?? I look forward to your replies, Ladies...Thank you kindly!

You can use both primers if you would like but the N28 primer is for more dry, dehydrated skin and the mineral veil is for more normal, combination to oily. If you want, I have done this, you can use both, layering them but I find that the mineral veil takes away the moisture the N28 primer serum puts on your skin, so depending on what you like.

The nice thing about the Hourglass serum duo is that YOU are in control of whether to use one, or both. In my case, during warmer months, I felt the white one was enough. But when it get drier outside, I 'doubled up' and added the 'heavy hitter.' I've also done that when I'm going to a special event, and want my makeup to last all night, but don't feel it's necessary for everyday. Either way, they are truly indulgent serums that feel great.
