It’s only in the last year that I’ve savvied up on primers and the benefits of using them. My usual primer is The Body Just Matte It, but the lovely people at Witch Skincare sponsored my #bbloggersxmas event and sent some Witch Anti Blemish Skin Clearing Primers* for the goody bags.
This is hand-on-heart the best primer I’ve ever used. When I first tried it I was really intimidated. The primer is so thick; it’s almost like something you’d put in your hair not on your face. And since my skin is super oily I actually thought that it would clog my pores and make my face shine like a new car. I couldn’t have been more wrong though …
The primer doesn’t just act as a great base for makeup; it mattifies and keeps my makeup looking fresh. Usually, by about midday that familiar shiny glaze starts setting on the bridge of my nose and by late afternoon I’m full on shine central. But this primer absorbs the excess oil as my skin produces it making my makeup last longer and holding the shine off for a few more hours.
It’s just £6.99, so it certainly doesn’t break the bank and it’s anti-bacterial too so should help to prevent future blemishes. I’ve been going through a good-skin period of late and although I mainly put it down to my miracle spot busters, I’m sure this has helped prevent new spots cropping up.
Bottom line: It’s brilliant. Buy it.
