I have always used a primer under make-up as I find it makes a dramatic difference in the way my makeup lays on my face and stays on all day. I never thought that a primer could also benefit my skin by wearing it alone also. I was given the opportunity to try Dermalogica’s new Hydrablur Primer and want to share the results with you. First of all, Dermalogica is a beauty brand that I have been using on my skin for many many years. I trust their products to always deliver on what they promise to do. This primer is no different.
I have been using the primer for a few weeks now, both alone and under makeup and I am sold! It has a lightweight, non greasy texture and felt silky & tingly when I applied on my skin. I can’t quite put my finger on what it smells like but it is very fresh & quite pleasant. My skin is prone to get oily as the day goes by but found that by using the primer oil was reduced and my skin stayed matt looking for longer.
When I use a primer under makeup I expect it to create smooth canvas to which I can apply my makeup. This primer did just that. It also extended my makeup for longer. I remember looking in the mirror at the end of the day and thinking wow my makeup still looks really good! I have never used a primer alone so was looking forward to see if it really makes a difference. I actually think this primer helped the appearance of my skin, making it look sort of plumper. Given that these days I don’t wear makeup everyday, I was pretty stoked that just by using this primer I could look half decent with no makeup.
So overall, I would say this product will be a new addition to my little Dermalogica family that I use religiously everyday. Do you use a primer?
