|| witch anti-blemish skin clearing primer £6.99 - boots ||
back at the end of the summer i nominated my amazing friend abbie (who also has a fab blog you should all check out!) for the witch '#flawlessfollower' competition on twitter and we were lucky enough to win! that meant that we both got sent one of their products to try out. i got sent the anti-blemish skin clearing primer which made me super happy because i have the disgusting skin you would expect of the sterotypical teenager.
i've been perscribed many things for my skin and tried hundreds of products (a post on this to come) but i'm still searching for my wonder product, so for me anything that has the words 'anti-blemish' in the title is worth a try! and having previously tried the witch concealer i was expecting great things!
the witch hazel found in all witch products is what gives it its anti-blemish properties. it is a natural anti bacterial which means that it soothes the skin whilst helping to fight the spot causing bacteria. the product is also oil and fragrance free so no need to worry about adding excess oil or overwhelming scents to your skin!
the product seems thick initally but thins and melts into skin easily as you blend it. left for a few minutes to dry it creates a perfect base for your make-up. i found that my foundation was so much easier to apply as the primer had left my skin so smooth, i also found i needed to use less powder as it gave a slightly matte finish, a massive bonus!
what i'm really looking for in a primer is an extension in how long my make up stays on and in general i found this did that! overall my face kept my foundation on for longer, aside from my chin that is which needed a slight reapplication of powder come late afternoon.
i have found this becoming my go to primer not only because it hold my make-up so well but its anti blemish properties make me feel much less guilty for putting so much make up on my terrible skin! i can't see if its made a signifigant difference to my skin but its not making it any worse! i'll be repurchasing this as soon as i'm finished as well as picking up some more witch products to add to my collection.
have you tried this primer? whats your favourite spot clearing product at the moment?
