This entry was posted on May 13, 2014.
With summer fast approaching, we know we've got hot and humid weather coming, too. So, unfortunately, that means sweaty and sticky skin which makes it nearly impossible to keep our makeup looking fresh. Luckily, Skindinavia came up with a makeup primer that will blow you away. Literally. They came up with an incredibly lightweight spray on makeup primer that is super lightweight and perfect to prevent major makeup meltdowns or that uncomfortable sticky summer makeup buildup from other cream primers. Here's a little more about the primer and why we thought we would share it with you!
Description: Here's how Skindinavia describes their one of a kind Oil Control MakeUp Primer Spray, "Our anti-shine, vitamin-based primer mist absorbs excess oil while creating a smooth, lightweight canvas for flawless makeup application. Skindinavia’s breakthrough silicone-free formula is clinically proven to even out skin tone, prevent breakouts and reduce the appearance of large pores. Recommended for oily or combination skin types."
The "Flawless Facts" from the Manufacturer: "83% of users agree this is the best makeup primer that have ever used. 93% of users noticed their skin felt smoother. Silicone-free base creates a breathable barrier between skin and makeup. Helps to prevent common skin issues associated with makeup use including redness, large pores and irritation. Proven to reduce the need for makeup touch-ups or blotting. Formulated to be worn with or without makeup. All Skindinavia products are oil, paraben and sulfate-free. Each product is tested for sensitive skin."
Feel: I love how light weight this primer is. When you hear makeup primer, you quickly think of those powdery creams that you use before big events like wedding photos or proms and that instantly turns me off! This primer is unlike any other primer I have ever used. It's a spray on mist, that literally takes less than 5 seconds to apply, and because it's so light weight, you don't even know you're wearing it. That's what makes this product PERFECT for hot and humid summer makeup application. You can go out on the town and spend your whole day out in the hot weather/sun and notice absolutely no change in your makeup!
Usage: The directions on the bottle say to spray 2-4 times in an X and T formation across your face. After using my usually daily moisturizer, I held the bottle about 4 inches from my face and sprayed (mostly in an X formation with 1 spray towards the center of my face/forehead) and let it sit for a minute. I immediately applied my regular makeup powder and bronzer with my usual brushes.
Results: I instantly saw a difference in how my makeup came out. The primer helped the power to adhere to my face more evenly leaving my skin looking crazy smooth and surprisingly cut down on my application time. I'm loving this spray on primer. Considering it only takes an extra 5 seconds, who wouldn't love it?! This is definitely a new must-have in my makeup routine.
