Hello my loves,
Todays post is going to be about one of my holy grail beauty products. For many years I have had a ton of sensitivity issues when it comes to my face. I have crazy skin that may be dry one day and oily the next. I never know what kind of day its going to be face wise! Recently I was diagnosed with Rosacea which answered a ton of the questions I have had over the years.
Now most of us know that if we want our foundation to apply smoothly and last all day then we need to apply a face primer before foundation. My normal routine is cleanse, moisturize, prime and then foundation, leaving a few minutes in between each.
A few problems I have had with different primers. Since my face can at times be on the oily side I have found that silicone based primers just make the natural oils on my skin ten times worse, but since my face can also be dry at times I have noticed that other primers tend to not help any dry patches and they just become for prominent. I have searched high and low for a primer that fits me and I finally found it! Now I have been using this primer for quite awhile now (I am on my 3rd tube of it). This is not a new primer and I am sure there are a million reviews on it, but since it is my holy grail primer I decided what better thing to do than to blog about my experience using it!
My holy grail primer is the Too Faced Hangoverx replenishing face primer. This primer is seriously the best thing to happen to my make up application in a long time. As you can see from the picture the consistency of this primer is just like a lotion. It absorbs nicely and feels so good on the skin. Not oily or greasy at all and that is a huge plus for me. This primer really helps keep your foundation from gathering into your fine lines and we all know about that! No only does the Hangover Primer help in your foundation application but it also helps the overall appearance of your skin. There have been several times even when I am not applying makeup that I just apply the primer over my moisturizer and it leaves me looking smooth and fresh faced. Also when I am looking for things I am going to use on my skin, one of the first things I do is look at the ingredients I am looking for water and SPF. Now you would think SPF would be great. In my case it is not. some products that contain a high SPF tend to make my Rosacea flare up and my face burns and gets red and blotchy. Trust me this does not feel or look good! With that being said the very first ingredient in this primer is WATER! I will list all of the ingredients below.
There have been plenty of times were I was in a rush and just threw everything in my bag only to realize when I went to do my makeup that I forgot to grab my primer and I will actually sit there and say DAMN! That’s what kind of difference this primer makes in your makeup application, it is a huge one.
The Hangoverx primer is $32.00 for 1.35 ounces. You do not need a lot so it should last you awhile. In my opinion it is worth every penny and I have recommended to a few ladies who ended up loving it. If you want to try it out go to your local Sephora and ask for a sample. You wont regret it. You can purchase it directly from Toofaced.com, sephora.com or ulta.com. Heres to a happy, fresh face!
