I cant help but feel the price, which was on offer at £9.99 when I bought it, is a bit too high, it is a very small pot and in the month or so since I bought it I have already used about a third already – so I am undecided if I will re-purchase this one or not.
When the L’Oreal Studio Secrets range was launched recently in the UK I immediately had my eye on the Resurfacing Primer. This is mainly due to the fact that my number one beauty issue (on a fairly substantial list) is that I have some fine lines already appearing under my eyes, despite the fact that I am only in my mid-twenties, personally I think this is a little unfair and will do anything in my power to treat/tone down/hide the dreaded lines.
So, right on cue – in rolls this wonder product from L’Oreal Studio Secrets – that promises to deliver a smooth, perfected skin, primed for foundation application. Sounds good right? But does it do as it says on the tin?
Pretty much, yep. It smooths skin and makes the lines SLIGHTLY less noticeable immediately which is great, but the lines don’t vanish as I hoped. Despite this, my favorite thing about it is that it prevents foundation or concealer from settling in the under-eye lines throughout the day. I have been using this every day, with either foundation, tinted moisturiser or just concealer on lazy make-up days.
What’s not to like? Well, the packaging is pretty non-descript and doesn’t seem to me like the most practical design. The texture is quite thick and covering a whole face takes some work, so I tend to concentrate it on the T-zone and under the eyes.
