This primer claims to fill in fine lines and I was curious to see if it can stop my foundation from creasing in my laugh lines, since that is a problem of mine. It also claims to prolong your face makeup, which I always want because I have an oily t-zone.
First thing I noticed about this primer is that it has amazing ingredients in it, including vitamin C; which I love putting on my face since it really helps to brighten dull skin. It also states on their website (linked below) that all their products are paraben-free, cruelty free and hypoallergenic. The bottle is also pretty large with 56.7g of product! It is a squeeze out tube.
The texture of this primer feels like a silicon based primer only it feels very moisturizing as well. It is very light on my face and dries down in less than a minute. I focused this product around my mouth and my eyes where I get more creasing. It made my skin feel very soft and velvety and allowed my foundation to glide on and blend much quicker than usual. I followed up with the rest of my face makeup. After several hours I noticed that the creasing in these areas were much less than with other primers I have tried. It didn’t stop the creasing completely but it did help a lot. I would also agree with their claim that it prolongs makeup wear as I noticed that my t-zone was not as oily as it usually gets after 4-5 hours. This was a surprise to me because most silicon-based primers do nothing to control the oil.
I would recommend this for both dry and oily skin types because it hydrates dry skin but also controls the oiliness, which helped prolong my makeup with fewer touch-ups.
