Birchbox Breakdown

Nowadays, there seem to be about as many primers as there are recipes for chocolate chip cookies. Alison Raffaele’s Face Forward Primer, though, is anything but cookie-cutter. It comes in two formulas: Acne Response and Age Response. Age Response helps create a more youthful, wrinkle-free appearance, while Acne Response zaps existing breakouts and wards off future ones. Both have SPF 15 and contain the exclusive Frutta di VitaTM antioxidant complex, which repairs and protects skin.

How it Works

A vegetable-derived hexapeptide in Age Response ups the body’s production of collagen and elastin. Acne Response contains an antimicrobial peptide that prevents acne bacteria from forming and also serves as an anti-inflammatory to help eliminate existing breakouts faster. Frutta di VitaTM consists of pomegranate, goji berry, and resveratrol, which are rich in vitamin C and beta carotene—together they minimize the appearance of age and sun spots, bolster the synthesis of collagen and elastin, create a more even skin tone, and help heal existing skin damage.

How to Use

After washing and drying face and applying face cream, massage a thin layer into skin with fingers. Follow with foundation and makeup as usual.

I've been using this primer for a while, and it is the best I've come across. It's great for sensitive skin, and has the extra bonus of acne response. My skin always looks clear, feels great, and my make-up stays all day long. A bonus is that a little bit of this product goes a long way, so don't be scared of the price, you'll be surprised by how long this product lasts.
