One of the best primers

Ive been using this primer for years now. I have very dry skin and a lot of primers seem dry. This glides on beautifully and then if my foundation is a little dry that is fine.

Loved it

The sample of this is a great size, I’ve used it a few times and I really loved it. It smells nice, it’s nice and light, and it really helps foundation hold all day.

Smells pleasant and feels lovely on the skin - I'm not convinced it actually does anything to improve the longevity of my foundation tho! For me it was a nice extra but definitely not a necessity. This product has been around forever and gives me so much nostalgia when I use it! The packaging is gorgeous too.

This primer is very moisturising and gives a more glowy finish - Probably no...
