Another ahead of time post, but I wanted to give you the heads up on the March launch of Laura Mercier Blemish-Less Primer. From the name, I expect you can guess that it’s targeting blemish prone skin. I have top-line information only, but can tell you that it’s a water-based gel with shine control that contains Salicylic Acid, silica, aloe and Vitamin E.
I’ve given it a test run, but please bear in mind that my skin isn’t particularly oily, and there is definitely a mattifying effect. Once the product has settled onto the skin, it’s lightweight and to a certain degree, smoothing. I think this is quite a possiblity for anyone with oily skin that finds it hard to hang on to foundation during the day, or needs to damp down shine when make up free. It definitely doesn’t feel slippy or silicone-y (although silica is a main ingredient) and completely lacks the oily feel that ‘blur’ primers, in particular, can have.
So, one to look out for in spring.
