ThisWorks in Transit Camera Close-up Primer Review


I’ve featured this in  a lot of my posts recently but I feel that a full review is necessary because it really is that good and a lot of people tend to ask me which primer they should buy. I’ve never used a primer before which acts as three things in one, and multitasks so well. This primer is the perfect skin care solution for you, I'm a little bit obsessed...


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

  24. So weird how I've not seen this in Boots!

    There is one primer that I use from time to time which is by Laura Mercier. The radiance one, it's a lovely rose gold colour which compliments my skin tone nicely. Will have to swatch this next time I'm in Boots.

  25. This sounds like a really good primer. I will definitely look to getting this once the primer i'm currently using runs out. I've been reading about a few different ones but i'm glad I saw this post as it sounds like it may be much better.
