Dermalogica SkinPerfect Primer Review

Friday, 25 October 2013

When it comes to applying foundation, I simply cannot be without my trusty primer. I honestly think that if you're not using a primer before applying foundation, you are seriously missing out. Whenever I skip primer, I always notice a dramatic difference - my makeup doesn't go on as well, it goes patchy and never lasts as long. 

So, when I heard there was a new primer from Dermalogica being released, I was really excited to review it. I love Dermalogica as a skincare brand and seeing them branch out into the world of primers is definitely good news to me. The SkinPerfect Primer from Dermalogica even has SPF 30, which is definitely a welcome addition, as I don't think I've ever used a primer with a built-in SPF, let alone one that is this high. The primer is tinted which is great, and is seriously smooth and soft on the skin. It smells really nice too - it's heavily scented of lavender (naturally, I might add) which I love, but if you're not the biggest fan of the scent this probably won't be for you. 

This primer glides on beautifully and feels velvety smooth - you can definitely see that it is packed full of silicones to make it super smooth. It feels lovely on the skin and makes my foundation go on seamlessly, and I definitely think it helps to brighten my skin and give it a 'glow'. My foundation lasts really well with this primer and I'm seriously impressed. I love how this primer is full of skin-loving ingredients too, as coming from a brand like Dermalogica I wouldn't expect any different! 

Overall I am really pleased with this primer and it's definitely up there with my favourites, the only thing I'm not so keen on is the price. It's a little bit out of my price range for primers but it is seriously one of the best I've used, so if you can afford it, it's worth a try.

Have you tried Dermalogica's SkinPerfect Primer? What do you think to it?
