Using a Primer before applying your foundation is important for various reasons. It works as a barrier between our skin and foundation, it helps our makeup to stay longer, even out our skin texture which further helps the foundation glides more smoothly & evenly. Primer also comes in many textures and formulas, some of them appears like lotion/cream, some provide little bit coverage too while others are transparent with velvety texture and goes clear on skin. I personally prefer clear primers. In this post I am going to review about Palladio herbal foundation primer.
Product Description: Reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores with this velvety, lightweight formula. Enriched with Aloe Vera and Chamomile, Palladio Herbal Foundation Primer helps prevent the loss of hydration throughout the day, which keeps the skin looking young and fresh. Wear alone or beneath foundation, for a longer-lasting makeup application. The unique, slick texture creates a flawless canvas, and prevents liquids from setting into imperfections. Results can be seen immediately.
My Views: The primer comes in .674fl oz/20ml, squeezable tube. The bottle itself is clear and silver plastic. The cap twists and clicks into place. I think it's pretty much a standard cosmetic tube.I actually like it.It's a clear gel-like formula. When applied to the face, it goes on easily and feels very silky when being rubbed/patted in. It does come across as if it would have silicone in it, but it does not. There is no oily residue left over either. It sets quickly, not quit to a matte finish, but somewhere between matte and dewy.
The primer blends easily into the skin and is absorbed within seconds. If you touch your skin after applying it you can actually feel that your skin is smoother. I'm not sure what it is in the product, but you cannot feel any scars. I usually wait a few minutes before I apply foundation, but as I said the primer is absorbed almost instantly so that may not even be necessary. Another thing I really love about this foundation is that it helps keep your skin hydrated and supple looking, giving you an almost youthful radiance. I think that could be credited to the Aloe Vera as well as the traces of Chamomile in the primer.
My Recommendation: This primer is fantastic; it glides on smoothly and blends my foundation seamlessly. Works wonderfully with every foundation and prolong the life of my foundation. I will re-purchase again for sure. Do try it!
