Soap And Glory One Heck Of A Blot | One Heck Of A Primer

Some people say primers are a bit of a gimmick and not worth investing in at all but I completely  disagree. In terms of giving a lovely base and correcting and minimising pore size I would say a decent primer is a must!

Normally I tend to opt for very glowy primers as I like a very illuminated complexion but I saw this sat at the Soap And Glory counter at Boots and the packaging charmed me and so I though I would pick it up and boy I am glad I did....

This primer has fast become my of my favourite drugstore primers, not only does it give a really nice base by which to apply my foundation but my skin looks more unified and my pores dramatically reduced when I use it.

It promises to balance the complexion whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and I have to say it really does do all of those things. I even opt to wear this without foundation because it just balances everything out and makes my skin look that little bit better. It is also very hydrating but doesn't make me oily which is always great.

The texture is lovely and light, it doesn't feel heavy on the skin or make my makeup feel tacky or caked in makeup. It provides a nice smooth base but allows my skin to breath. It has like a cream gel formula and feels very smoothing and a pleasure to apply, it is also lightly scented which enriches my senses.

If you are looking for an everyday base for under your makeup that dulls out and blurs imperfection's, whilst reducing oil production and keeping you makeup in place I would strongly recommend this. It also makes the complexion look a lot more healthy and youthful and for me it really is a gem of a product!

Hope you guys enjoyed this mini review.

Big Love.
