Where I got it: I got this from the goodie bag when I went to the Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm launch. This Skinperfect Primer is available from all Dermalogica counters for RRP$98.00.
What I got: This is a 22ml tube of the Dermalogica Skinperfect Primer SPF30. Smooth away fine lines, brighten and prime for flawless skin and to prep for make-up application. Velvety silicones combine with Soy Protein to even out skin texture, as natural minerals provide a neutral tint to balance skin tone and enhance luminosity and radiance. A potent peptide helps improve skin firmness, as sunscreens shield against sun damage. White Tea polyphenols inhibit collagen damage by destructive MMPs and free radicals. Wear alone over your moisturizer for visible smoothness and luminosity, or after moisturizer application and before foundation to help fill fine lines for a lasting make-up finish. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours.
How I find it: This primer has a sheer tint and a really pretty pearlised finish in the skin. You can use this as an illuminating primer or on its own. It also has a smoothing effect thanks to the silicone in the formula. You do, however, need to be careful on the type of foundation you use on top of a silicone based primer because it will pill up. I like to squeeze the product onto the back of my hand and then dot the product onto my forehead, my cheeks, my nose and my chin and then smooth it out with my fingers making sure it is smoothed out evenly especially around the nose.
Overall: I like the fact that I can use this primer alone or under foundation and it still works great. When I’m feeling a rather good skin day or when I feel like minimal makeup, I can just use this all over my face to even out my skin tone and smooth out my pores without looking heavy and cakey. It also provides a natural glow on the skin without looking shimmery. As a primer, I love how it smooths my lines and pores before my foundation application. It makes my foundation goes on smoothly and flawlessly. However, $98 for a 22ml tube is pretty expensive in my opinion and there are more affordable silicone-based primers out there that could give the same effect, but this isn’t just a primer, it is also a skin care product that provides skincare benefits, therefore you are paying for the skin care ingredients as well.
