Beauty Review: Best Foundation Primers

 

Just like you prime a wall before you paint it, you can prime your face before you apply foundation. Primers work much like a moisturizer under your foundation does: they ease the application of foundation and are meant to create a barrier between foundation and skin. They’ll even out skin tone, help your makeup stay on longer and absorb oil with salicylic acid.

Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer

The primer goes beyond what normal primers do because of beneficial ingredients. Fragrance-free. Lightweight, silky texture smooths skin and refines enlarged pores.

 

MAC Prep + Prime Line Filler

Rather than just being a mix of silicone and fragrance, this combines a dry-finish silicone polymer with emollients, film-forming agents, and copious antioxidants to help smooth skin, temporarily fill in superficial lines, and create an even canvas for foundation.

 

Urban Decay complexion PrimerPotion-Brightening

This formula goes above and beyond most primers. It offers a plentiful range of antioxidants, it’s fragrance free, and is great for oily skin types.

 

Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base

When applied to skin, the green tint becomes a pale flesh tone that provides a bit of coverage. If you have superficial, minor redness, you’ll notice it is less apparent, but that would be true for any tinted moisturizer, too. Anyone with lingering or persistent redness (such as occurs with rosacea) will want to pair this with a foundation that supplies at least medium coverage. One more thing: The finish of this product is matte. It can lend a flat appearance to skin that someone not bothered with oiliness may not like.

Beauty Review: NeriumAD

I recently started using a new night cream, NeriumAD. I have found this cream to be the most amazing thing I have ever put on my skin. This skin cream was accidentally developed by scientists and doctors.  This cream targets fine lines, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and aging and damaged skin.  The Nerium Oleander extract is the secret this powerful accidental discovery that the Nerium oleander plant bring amazing age defying results to the skin. Scientists found a breakthrough process to extract the oleander extract that preserve its amazing properties.

The packaging on the product is perfect. When you are using an anti aging skin care product with plant extracts you have to be careful with storage. The tube packaging ensures the active ingredients last until you are finished with each bottle and the darker packaging won’t allow sun to penetrate the bottle.

The results from this fabulous night cream are based on hard evidence. They use a ST&T facial scanner that scans deep into the skin and measures the actual change in the skin. Most skin care tests are based on just opinions of participants or visual grading of the doctors. Nerium AD scientist take the extra step to prove this product is working. I hope to see more products from this company. They are taking the beauty industry by storm. This means the efficacy of their products are determined by what subjects think or what a doctor observes instead of what a computer dictates. Although NeriumAD’s results can easily be seen by the naked eye, the percentages from our clinical trials are based solely on unbiased scientific data.
