Bridging the gap between skincare and make up

I know it's been a while since my last blog post but the Christmas and New Year period got away from me but now it's 2013 and I'm back with more exciting products to talk about!

Firstly I'll start with the latest and greatest new product from my favourite brand, Dermalogica, the Skinperfect Primer SPF30. Now the lucky few of you who are from the USA, Canada or Australia have already been playing with this product for a while now but here in the UK we've had to wait patiently for it's launch and finally it's here!

A primer is used to smooth and prepare the skin for make up and to extend the wear of your foundation. However, most primers focus on the cosmetic side of things rather than skin health. Many primers contain blocking ingredients that can lead to break outs and irritation which can eventually lead to your skin looking a lot worse for wear.

This new product the Skinperfect Primer SPF30 from Dermalogica has been added to their ever popular AGE Smart system. It delivers radient and even skin, invisible sun protection and it is also a powerful treatment for your skin.

Why is it so good you ask? Well it's got silicones to help smooth and even out skin texture and gives your skin an amazing velvety feel and hydrolyzed Pearl and natural earth minerals even skin tone and give your skin a very subtle tint and glow. Physical sunscreens Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide give your skin broad spectrum protection without leaving it looking chalky and a blend of peptides and proteins help firm the skin and stimulate collagen production... what more could you ask for?

I've been using this product for about a month now and even though it has an SPF in it I still definitely wear it under my make up in the evening when I'm going out. Compared to other primers on the market it's relatively inexpensive as you really do only need the tiniest amount and I've barely made a dint in mine so far.

Take my word for you... you won't be disappointed!
