Birchbox Breakdown

We chug water before and after our daily jog (okay, three times a week, but who’s counting?). And since our skin is essentially racing through an endless obstacle course—dealing with pollution, UV rays, and other hazards—we give it plenty of hydration, too, with this primer from Laura Mercier. This nourishing formula gives the skin the moisture it needs, plus a daily dose of vitamins to help protect against environmental damage. What’s more, it helps our makeup stay put and color true—so we can look great while keeping our skin happy.

How to Use

After applying sunblock or moisturizer (if desired), apply a pearl-sized amount of primer to face, avoiding eye area. Lightly rub into skin for a minute or two. Wear as is or follow with foundation.

Great primer

It works great, but as I get slightly! older, it fails to fill in those fine lines. Great as a base, can be worn with or without makeup.

Feels like lotion
Purchased

I bought a full-size and wish I'd tried a sample first. I've recently tried two other popular primers that I liked more. It feels like another moisturizer on my face, and while it doesn't feel like it is a negative thing for my skin, I'm not really sure I see the benefit of it as a primer. It could be that it doesn't work well with my foundation formula, but I recommend you try a sample with yours before you go full-size.

too dark and oily for me

looks like bad foundation too orangey because I'm cool and fair. Prefer many other bargain and luxe products over this one. Too oily kind of latexy, and rolled on the skin.

Great Everyday Primer

I believe in the power of primer... When I want a natural, "no makeup" look, I always reach for this primer.

I was skeptical at first because it feels like a lotion but it works like a dream and I love how it makes my skin feel.

To be fair though, if you want something to fill in fine lines and pores then you should reach for something heavier.

Still, I use this when I'm going for a glam look on the areas where I don't need the extra coverage because I think it makes my skin look and feel so healthy!
