Firstly, the packaging. It’s so simple. I usually have products which are black, but the white and red works really well here. I find that ThisWorks is such an exciting and on trend brand, their logo and even the simplicity of this packaging just make this item look gorgeous in my bedroom or my make up bag, it looks really high end.
This isn’t just a primer, as it says, it’s a mask, moisturiser and primer in one.
It’s moisturising properties aren’t a myth, this really does moisturise. It looks like a moisturiser when you apply it. It’s quite firm in texture, so it isn’t too oily. I wouldn’t personally apply a moisturiser when I’ve applied this. Too much of a good thing kind of counteracts how good it is.
It’s face mask properties are fabulous. I have noticed such a change in my whole complexion since using this, my face feels smoother, softer and just generally more radiant. I really notice a difference when I don’t put this on my face.
In terms of as a primer, my make up stays on all day, and when it is time for it to come off, it doesn’t melt off like it does without primer, it gradually just kind of leaves. It takes a few moments to absorb into the skin and then you're ready to apply your make up, to soft, smooth, even skin.
What is a primer? Do I need a primer? Is a regular question that I see floating around. I used to ask this. But what you need to think is that this isn’t just a primer, it’s a three in one, which works fantastically and saves you from buying three separate products. A primer acts as a barrier between the skin and the product that you are about to apply, so if you’re applying a nasty foundation, it wont clog your skin up if you put a primer on. Primers also smooth out the face and make make up application easier and make make up stay on the face longer. I rarely touch up my make up anymore since getting this.
It’s perfect for travelling, who needs three items when this is three in one? It’s also really light weight and a nice size, so it wont take up too much handbag space.
This is £30.00 but that's basically three products for £30.00, so it works out at £10.00 each. Do you like the sound of this? What is your favourite primer? How do you feel about primer in general?
Lots of love, Em x
