My skin is pretty dry a lot of the time, so even after I've already applied my moisturizer for the day, my skin sometimes still feels a bit tight and dry, which makes it difficult to put my makeup on . I've tried putting a second layer of moisturizer on, but that usually results in greasy looking and feeling skin, so instead, I use The Body Shop's Moisturize It Skin Primer.
All you need is a small amount to do the trick
A primer is meant to prime your skin- to even out your skin tone and absorbing any excess oils before you apply your makeup, so this one works perfectly for my skin because it also has the added benefit of providing extra moisture to your skin before the makeup goes on. Rather than being as thick as moisturizer, this primer is lightweight, so it adds the extra hydration my skin needs without feeling too heavy on top of my moisturizer. It absorbs quickly and smoothes and softens any remaining dryness in my skin.
Evens out my skin tone and adds extra moisture
I love this primer, and my only gripe is that it comes in such a small tube. I don't mind paying the price for a good product, but I could easily do with a tube double the size!
