Tis the weekend!
Anything good planned?
I’m eager for it, bit tired today even though it was a short week.
Today I have for you a little something new….Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Primer Serum.
Explore it with me.
A collaborated effort from Covergirl and Olay which combines Olay Regenerist complex to firm skin over time while prepping and priming it for foundation!
I do ask myself whether I need a product that acts as an anti-aging serum as well as a primer….mmmmmm maybe considering I love the way Korres Quercetin & Oak Age Reversing Primer!
This is actually quite lovely if you have drier skin as it is a silicone-free primer with a moisturizing, creamy feel. The formula is a white creamy base with clear serum injected into the mix but you’d never tell as it pumps out as a cream. It absorbs easily enough and runs towards being heavier than many primers you may have tried in the past but very moisturizing.
It comes in a pump packaging which makes an ideal for easy application.
Dry skin users particularly those with mature skin that’s lined will find the joy in this. It’s incredibly hydrating and seems thick enough to fill minor imperfections and perhaps blur them.
Combination types, normal types, oily types, and even drier younger skin types might not really benefit. I’m pretty dry at the moment and it feels lovely on my skin however it does make me slightly oily as the day progresses which I’ll blame on the serum part of the mix. My skin is simply not used to using a serum in the day and the combination of it and a heavier feeling primer might prove a bit too much.
It didn’t make my foundation last particularly longer but did aid my base at applying a little more smoother.
It retails for $15.99 and comes to around $17.33 after taxes. Obscene for a drugstore primer in my opinion. At this rate I can just go to Sephora and pick something out.
I do see some instant visible results when using Korres’ Anti-Aging Primer however with this I’ve seen nothing as of yet but than again I do not have finer lines on my face however in terms of easing dullness or making my skin brighter and fresher, that has yielded little difference. Of course, used over a longer period of time on older skin you may see some results but I can’t speak about such results for myself.
- Drier, mature skin types!
- Dry skin in need of extra moisture.
- Oily, Combination types (this will only make you oilier if you’re already oily and combination types may find it a tad too rich making them shiny around the forehead, chin, and cheeks).
- Anyone unwilling to dish out near $20 bucks for drugstore primer (Insane!).
In terms of moisture this definitely gets a point or two but formula and price wise it needs some extra work. The price is a tad on the absurd side of things to me and the formula isn’t particularly fantastic for a wider range of skin types and ages as it seems to center an audience of more mature, drier skin types.
I wasn’t wow’ed by this in the least sadly.
I wanted to love it but just felt it came up lacking.
Anyone try yet?
Perhaps it might be worth a little haul if you run across it on sale but personally even than it might not be worth it.
