Hello again guys, as you probably have seen yesterday I posted my very own first fashion blog post about what's on my autumn/winter 'high street' fashion wish list. I will be doing a higher brand fashion wish list as well as that sometime in the week so keep your eye out girls!
Anyway onto the most important subject of this post! This is my own review of the GOSH Velvet Touch Foundation Primer.
To start it of for anyone who may not know what a foundation primer is..
What is a foundation primer?
Well a foundation primer is a base for your foundation, you apply it before you apply your foundation and it creates a barrier between your skin and foundation. It also doubles up as a moisturiser as well as a primer. A foundation primer can help ease the application of foundation making your skin look absolutely flawless and it also helps your foundation stay put throughout the day.
I used this foundation primer a few years ago while I was on holiday & I ran out and never bought it since, then I came across it again at my local super drugstore retailing for £12.99 and I decided to pick it up as I was looking for a decent drugstore primer.
This primer is a gel based primer as you can tell on the picture above which is absolutely perfect for my oily skin as cream based primers tend to break me out and make my face feel much more oily.
The packaging is pretty basic, it's a 30ml see through bottle so you know how much you have left which is handy if you're running low. On the bottle it says it's a perfect base for makeup, it fills in fine lines and deep pores into the skin, creating a uniform, matt and silky soft surface enabling the easy & smooth application of foundation.
It does feel a slightly bit greasy on the hands when you apply it onto the face but after application my face did what the bottle said it would.. it made my face feel smooth like velvet.
You only need a small amount of the foundation primer to apply all over the face.
After I applied this to my face then applied my foundation I seen how big a difference it made to my face. My skin looked so flawless, you could barely see my pores, I was pretty amazed.
I don't know how I went without using this foundation primer for so long!
This is a very good foundation primer to use if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to smashbox primers.
Overall, I think that at £12.99 I'd say it's an absolute bargain, you can buy it from Super drug or Boots stores and it lasts for at least a month, maybe more.
