review: mineral infused face primer from e.l.f
Of the four products I purchased from eyeslipsface.co.uk this has to be my favourite! I was simply in need of a primer to replace my gosh velvet touch which was on its last legs and so added this to my basket without a thought .. £6 seemed like such a bargain.&what a bargain it is!
In all honesty I wasnt too excited to try this primer untill over the last few days i noticed other bloggers asking about it and figured I could well be onto a good thing!
After my first use on friday morning it didnt seem that the primer got along with my skin nor my foundation, the primer didnt appear to soak into my skin as much as i'd like and so i left it for a few minutes before applying my foundation and then this decided to clump in places as I applied it.. not a good look!!
But I had faith.. using it again over the weekend I used even less than before, barely a full pump, infact i'd say it was about the size of half a pea! This was the perfect amount for my face, it spread evenly covering my face and my skin felt smooth enough for me to apply my foundation. As I did so with my fingers (like normal) I noticed that it wasnt clumping at all.. my foundation was applying as normal! hoorah! :D and it even seemed to last all through the day, I didnt re apply any powder or blusher toward the evening because I just didnt need to.
Now for the best bit - I have combination skin.. that being a combo of dry patches on my cheeks, an oily nose and chin and dry almost flaky skin on the bridge of my nose. Waking up this morning i cleansed and toned my face as normal then reached for my moisturiser, now I dont use this everyday because my skin is so up and down so I checked my face and cheeks to see where I would and wouldn't need to apply moisturiser and was amazed to find no dry nor oily patches anywhere! Yes I has a couple of blemishes on my chin but no primer is going to help them out!
So all in all this primer.. amazing! You only need the tinyest amount, it isnt going to cost as much as others and it has totallly helped out my combination skin after just 3 days! :)
I'm a very happy Bunny!! :D
If you try the elf mineral infused face primer i'd love to know how you get along with it! & fingers crossed you'll be as happy as I am :) :)
Hope you enjoyed my first review ever! As there will be many more to come..
