When I first heard about face primers a few years ago, I was skeptical. It kind of seemed like an extra product I was piling on my face — you know after serums, moisturizers and an SPF. But now, I feel that a primer can be an important extra step to take, if you have the right one. A good primer will make your face look instantly smoother, plus keep your make-up looking fresh all day and lasting longer.
So I was excited to try the Korres Quercetin & Oak Age-reversing Face Primer ($33.00 1.01 oz). This primer is not only a skin-smoother, it is a anti-aging treatment. The website describes it as:
Powerful treatment and skin-perfecting face primer in one that instantly fills wrinkles and provides a very smooth and perfected skin surface, ensuring long-lasting make up application. Enriched with powerful antioxidant Quercetin and Oak extracts that improve skin cell functioning, repair fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid forms a protective shield on the skin, providing immediate moisture and increasing skin elasticity while Barley extract instantly fills wrinkles and refines pores. Improves skin texture, thus providing a healthy glow to skin even without make-up. Silicone-free; does not clog the pores.
• 97% saw improved skin texture
• 88% saw significant increase in skin elasticity
• 84% saw visibly firmer, tighter skin
• 75% saw immediate lifting
What I think: My first reaction to the primer was that it seemed to go on more creamy like a moisturizer than slick like a silicone primer. But when I looked at myself after application, my skin tone was more even and my skin tone was smooth. Concealer and foundation glided on easily, and yes, my skin looked great all day long. As a forty-something woman, my skin is redder and my pores more noticable than when I was younger. This primer really helped even all of that out!
This primer is one of the best I have tried, and I highly recommend it! Visit www.korresusa.com to learn more and to purchase this fab primer!
