What is a primer?
The definition of a skin primer is a preparatory product applied after skincare to create an ideal canvas for your chosen makeup layer. They help makeup to last longer, smooth the skin’s surface and even out skin tone. Different primers are used for the face, lips, eyes and lashes.
Dermalogica's Skin Perfect Primer is the winner of The Irish Tatler's Best Primer for Sensitive Skin!
This is one of Dermalogica's WOW products because it's multifunctional. I call it my polyfiller because it smooths out fine lines and as a primer it enhances the appearance and duration of foundation and powders. It can be worn on it's own to give a sheer coverage or under a tinted moisturiser or foundation to create a smooth finish.
Skin perfect primer contains the anti-ageing ingredients hydrolyzed pearl and several peptides to help stimulate collagen production which increases the skin's firmness. With an SPF of 30, it helps to shield the skin against ultraviolet rays, the active ingredients are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide which are suitable for sensitive skins.
