Hi beauties. ☼
I’ve recently just finished & re-purchased this Gosh Velvet Touch Foundation Primer so I thought this would be perfect to include as part of my project 10 pan, especially as there doesn’t seem to be much about it online!!
What is a primer?
A primer is a product you use in between your skincare & your face makeup. It is designed to fill in large pores & smooth over imperfections on the skin in order to create a smooth base for makeup! Some primers also make your makeup last longer on the skin, it just depends what type of primer you’re looking for 🙂
What Gosh claim:
Gosh Velvet Touch Foundation Primer is a perfect base for all makeup. It fills in fine lines and deep pores in the skin, creating a uniform, matt and silky soft surface, enabling the easy and smooth application of foundation.
The primer can be used after daily moisturiser or on clean skin. The formula is perfume and preservative free.
Gosh’s Velvet Touch Foundation Primer is (as you can see) a clear primer, it is silicone based (which most primers are) which is what makes the skin feel smooth and soft after applying the product and retails here in the UK for £7.99.
As Gosh claims this definitely does fill in fine lines & deep pores, as when I apply this I see no sign of any pores which I do have quite large ones around the nose/cheek area. I 100% agree with the statement that it creates a uniform, matt & silky soft surface as the silicone formula is what does this, however, like most silicone based primers if you rub this into your skin (e.g. like you would a moisturiser) it is likely to ball up. Therefore, it is best to either lightly rub or pat this product into the skin & leave it to settle in for a few minutes 🙂
To apply this primer I pump about a quarter of a pump (half a pea-size amount) onto the back of my hand, you really don’t need much of this as a little goes a long way. I then place a tiny amount on my forehead, nose, cheeks & chin – these are the places I find have more imperfections and pores – but just apply it to where you need it. After I have distributed the product I push it into the skin by pressing my finger over the area that needs it, this will push the product into the pore/smooth out any perfections to create a smooth base for makeup, I also find this method works the best!! 🙂
What I think of this primer
Despite the fact that I said this primer can ball up, it is still worth every penny & to be honest beauties I think this primer is a steal as it really does fill in those unwanted pores & smooth out imperfections. It creates the PERFECT base for any face makeup you wish to apply & even though it doesn’t claim to help keep your makeup on throughout the day, I definitely think it helps to do this!!
I cannot recommend this product enough as it is perfect for any skin (well, I have sensitive skin so if it works for me I’m sure it’ll work for you too!). Like Gosh claims it really is perfume free, which personally I love as I don’t necessarily like putting highly perfumed/scented products on my face as it makes me react to it, but this product is a winner all round with this.
No perfume, creates a flawless feel to the skin, helps keep makeup on all day & is very inexpensive!!! What more could we want? ♥
WOO! This primer also has a pump & is one of those products where as you use it up something in the bottom rises (something to do with pressure) in order for you to be able to get the last drop of the product out! WIN WIN SITUATION!!
