When Jebus set out to create primer he though of filling the pores of beautiful girls everywhere, of taming their oily skin, of creating a perfect canvas for makeup. During this creation process the Muse thinks he might have forgotten the rare few of us who don’t really have a problem with oily skin or large pores……those of us who have dry skin, sometimes flaky bits on our face, and feel the need for a moisturizing primer that isn’t silicon in nature.
Although he forgot much of this Korres remembered that we were around and in turn created the exact primer we need.
Jump ahead to hear my review.
Korres Primer makes my day all the brighter with it’s silicon-free formula. If you’re looking for a primer that makes your foundation easier to blend, allows your foundation to apply easier, and offers extra moisture to your face, Korres Primer is the way to go.
Although debate could arise that a creamy, moisturizing primer is basically the same concept as using a facial moisturizer, not the case. Facial moisturizers on a whole compared to primers are vastly different as they are a bit more greasy, aren’t as dense, and don’t offer that smoother feel that allows foundation to sit on top of skin rather than blend into the skin.
The formula is a moist, dense cream that adds extra moisture to the skin while prepping and priming for foundation. I’m unsure if I’d recommend it for oily skin but dry and normal skin types should rejoice at the prospect of a silicon-free primer. It’s lightly scented with orange which I think is very nice although some may find they don’t like it if they are sensitive to smell, as for me I think it just adds to the appeal of the product. The product absorbs upon contact with skin but still manages to cast an invisible barrier on top of skin so that foundation doesn’t oxidize or absorb away completely into skin. It keeps foundation fairly fresh but I didn’t notice extended wear when using this.
Overall, if you’re not a fan of silicon based primers and just seek a simple, effective way to prep and prime your dry skin (or normal) prior to foundation Korres Face Primer is a great choice. I liked it alot and will purchase it again when I’m through. The $28 price tag could be a bit much for some if you are just wanting to test out so it’s nice that Korres has a smaller size for a mere $10 which should get you a few uses prior to indulging in a bigger size if you end up loving it.
