I've said it before and I'll say it again, when a skincare brand releases base make-up products I pay attention! So when I had an email in my inbox about Dermalogica releasing a primer, my ears perked up! Since then I've been trying it out and generally just loving it! I've not tried a whole lot from Dermalogica, but what I have tried, I've been a big fan of - although the prices are on the expensive side. Although I guess you get what you pay for with skincare!
As always I've included a summary at the end :)
This comes in a sleek tube that holds 22ml of product - not a massive amount, but reasonable. It's dispensed by a simple small nozzle, which to be honest is probably my favourite way to package a primer! This one is silicone based, but also contains soy proteins too to help even out the skins texture. Ingredient wise this is very good, containing pearl powder and natural minerals, which help make this a tinted primer, as well as to give a glow! But it's not all about the instantaneous effects, this also has White Tea and SPF30 to help prevent signs of aging. This is available from Dermalogica for £37.50*.
What did I think?
Forgetting the price, I really really like this, I think it's stolen the spot of favourite primer. It really does even out the skin, both in texture and colour due to it being tinted. It also gives a beautiful glow to the skin - although using a medium/full coverage foundation over the top does cover it up. As for longevity of my foundation, I did find that increased the life of my foundation during the day - although I wouldn't go as far as to say that my foundation was perfect by the end of the day. Due to the price I think that this is probably a primer best saved for special occasions - well unless perhaps you own a gold mine!
The Good - tinted, gives a glow, evens out skin surface and colour, SPF30, increases longevity of foundation, smells good (slightly herbal!).
The Not so Good - Quite expensive!
Would I Repurchase? If it was on sale I would consider it - you know me!
