Review: TheFaceShop Face It Primer Moisture Fitting

21. February 2014
I’m not using foundation often, practically I don’t use them at all… Instead, I’ve been preferring using BB creams for years now and I never really thought about trying it primer for it. But lately I thought “Why not?!” Maybe it works out for me, too, to use some primer occasionally. That’s why I bought TheFaceShop Face It Primer Moisture Fitting a while ago and I’ve fallen in love with it ♥

There are three versions for this primer, one is called velvet skin, one called glow, and this one is called moisture fitting and it has a light pink packaging. The packaging is designed neat and simple. The instructions on the cardboard box are written in Korean and in English, which is a great plus!
Here is the list of ingredients for this product:
Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Cetylethylhexanoate, Hydrogenated polydecene, Cetearyl alcohol, Niacinamide, Glyceryl stearate, Glycereth-26, Butyrosperum parkii (Shea Butter), Microcrystalline wax, PEG-100 Stearate, Dimethione, Corallina officinalis extract, Citrus paradisi (Grapefruit) fruit extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Butylene Glycol, Triceteareth-4 phosphate, Dipentaerythrityl, Hexahydroxystearate/Hexastearate/Hexarosinate, Caprylic/Capric glycerides, PEG-2 Stearate, Glycol stearate, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone crosspolymer, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate crosspolymer, Limnantes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Potassium hydroxide, C12-14 pareth-12, Disodium EDTA, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Yellow 5, Red 4, Fragnance,Alpaha-isomethy ionone, Benzyl salicylate, Butylphenyl, Methylpropional, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool
The ingredient list is quite long and you can look up the stats on COSDNA if you like (click >>here<< for the link to this ingredients list). It contains Alcohol and Parabens, and if you have sensitive skin you should check out the list first.
The primer comes in a bottle with a pump. the bottle is plastic, but you cannot see through it in order to see how much is left in the bottle. I love using pumps for such products, because it makes them much easier to use ♥ Again, the design stays simple, like the design of the cardboard box.
The primer itself has a creamy, lotion-like structure and has a white color. It feels moisturizing and gives the skin an instant cooling sensation. The skin feels soft and gets a nice glow after applying the primer. Furthermore, this primer is really lightweight and is not sticky at all. The scent is flower-like, but it is not overwhelming. I used both BB and CC cream with this primer and I’m really happy with the effect. My face looked great all day long and I didn’t have the need to touch up in the evening, which was really surprising. I will definitively recommend this primer to you! Maybe the Velvet Skin primer is better suited for oily skin, but for dry and normal skin I can only recommend trying TheFaceShop Face It Primer Moisture Fitting! ♥

      I think this primer mainly aims at moisturising the skin and make it look more even. The Velvet Skin Primer is designed for pore coverage as far as I read the reviews. Thank you for commenting, dear!♥
