I purchased mine from Superdrug (Cant find it on the website) for £4.99. Im not sure if this is an introductory price or if it was launched into shops at full price.
Before I purchased this I moisturised in the morning and then used a Rimmel primer on my psoriasis patches on my T Zone. This primer claims to moisturise and provide a smooth base for effective make up application. It also says that makeup will stay put on your face for longer.
The primer is enriched with natural Almond Oil and Calendula extract. This adds to the smell. The smell is actually quite strong but its not off putting and I actually quite like it. I can still smell it on the back of my hand from when I was swatching for the pictures but Im wearing it on my face now and I cant smell it.
When I applied it this morning I used it without moisturiser and just did this and my foundation. Being honest, this has given the best makeup application that Ive had in a long long while. My psoriasis hasnt shown up at all and my makeup is still going strong although Im a bit oily. Like it claims (and from the swatch picture above) it is really light and non greasy. It leaves my skin nice and smooth but without looking like an oil slick (I suffer from really oily skin and sometimes moisturiser just adds to the problem).
Another positive to this which is a problem with other primers is that they feel really silliconey. Im not sure if sillicone is an ingredient in this primer but if it is then it isnt obviously so.
All in all I would highly recommend this primer to anyone on the lookout for something that leaves a nice smooth base without feeling like a mask on the face. Its cheap cheerful and reaches far higher than the expectations I had for it!
