I want to say that Laura Geller Spackle was the first real official facial primer I ever used but maybe I’m remembering things all wrong…..! Needless to say I remember it being mind blowing since it was one of the very few hydrating facial primers around at the time.
The beauty industry was busy force feeding the world Smashbox Photo Finish which for this dry skinned girl was a nightmare. First off, Photo Finish was itchy as hell and secondly, it pilled like crazy on my drier skin. I found myself reading raving review after review after review and questioning why it didn’t work for me! I tossed my tube out and P.S. I avoid it at all costs to this day.
Soon after I discovered Laura Geller Spackle which I was scared to try due to my horrible experience with Photo Finish. Mind you this is well over ten years ago and facial primers weren’t as plentiful as they are nowadays. Bless relief! Spackle turned out wonderfully for me! It absorbed easily and it eased the way for my foundation so application was smoother and easier.
Fast forward a hundred or so odd years and we now have Laura Geller Spackle Mist. Priming mists (or hell even priming oils now) are the newest rage to hit the beauty scene but I find them terribly overated.
These newfangled primer mists promise to not only prime and hydrate your skin but also to set it for all day where. I’ve tried a few and I haven’t quite found one that impresses me as of yet. Ironically enough it was Smashbox Primer Water that started this craze. So, here we are full circle! Considering I was unimpressed with the Smashbox formula maybe Laura Geller’s will!
This does promise the multitasking benefits that most primer waters so such as priming and hydrating as well as setting. It also contains aloe vera extract and Vitamin B5 to keep skin moist!
We shall see maybe this formula will win me over!
What do you think?
Worth a try?
