|Gosh Velvet Touch Foundation Primer (Classic) - £12.99|
Ages ago, I was on the hunt for a good foundation primer and after doing some research it seems clear that this was a pretty great high street primer. I used it a few times and then it went into the back of my make up collection. But recently, I rediscovered it and have been using it pretty frequency! Unfortunately you can't purchase this online but it is still available in Superdrug for around £8 to £13! Although, there is also a cream version if this which is avaliable online. (weird!)
This primer really does live up to its 'velvet touch claim', it leaves my skin feeling amazingly silky soft and supple making any base products glide on like a dream!
It claims to fill in fine lines and deep pores leaving the skin feeling soft, uniform and matte. I wouldn't agree with all those claims as it doesn't fill in those fine lines as well I thought it would and it gives more of a semi matte finish than fully matte but, it does reduce the size of my pores greatly and does keep my skin feeling soft. It has no claim that it keeps your foundation on longer but I do notice my foundation looks 'fresher' for longer compared to when I don't use it (not by much though!)
The primer has a gel consistency which is nice as it doesn't feel heavy on the skin; it feels very lightweight. The gel is clear so you aren't left with any residue after applying. To apply I use either my fingers to or just use my RT stippling brush!
It has a handy pump which I like, but there is no way you need a whole pump of this stuff! About half a pump covers my face with ease anymore than one pump and it would feel a bit too greasy on the skin.
I think this would be great for all skin types especially normal to dry. Overall I think it a pretty good primer if you suffer with big pores and find it hard to blend out certain foundations! Not sure if I will repurchase though!
