I bought this primer 1 year ago in Superdrug because I really wanted to try a primer.
I had never heard of primers until maybe 2 or 3 months before but when I heard of the benefits I was very tempted.
When I was looking around the shop I spotted this, the packaging was see through and had a pump dispenser and black writing on it.
I had never even heard of GOSH before but it looked very decent so I decided to buy it for £12.99.
This is what GOSH claims to do:
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.
I don't have any wrinkles or fine lines so your probably thinking "ok then..why did you buy it you fool?!" BUT here is why, I had heard by many make up artist that a primer would be good for women with uneven skin tone, or women with facial scars that have sunken into the skin, this would help fill in them places to make my face look more flawless and even which was great because some of the foundations I have used draw attention to the acne scars on my face.
I also heard that a primer would make my make up stay on a few hours longer and control all of the shine. ( something else I suffered with so ofcourse I was going to buy! )
This is very easy to use, simple push the pump and a tiny amount will come out, I didn't think a tiny amount would do my whole face but it did!
The feel of the gel is very nice, very soft and velvety ( I guess it said it would be so why was I surprised! what am I like ).
It was weird to get used to the feeling of the gel on my skin because I had never used anything like this before.
I smoothed this onto my face and felt it, it was so soft and smooth, felt amazing.
I found the application of my foundation to be much easier, it practically glided on!
My skin looked more dewy and less shiny and it will keep my make up on extra longer! 3 or 4 hours which is an advantage if your make up tends to slide of and go greasy.
I bet you just hate topping up your make up at lunch don't you?
you won't have to if you invest in this!
I don't use this any more because I now use a foundation containing a primer, but if I do go back to wearing a normal foundation I will go back to using this primer because of the advantages.
A bottle of this last me 3 or 4 months, I wear foundation everyday.
It's worth the money.
If you are somebody with great skin and a flawless complexion, this will be no good for you, count your self lucky.
I recommend this for people who's make up does fade quickly, and people with wrinkles, uneven skin, facial scars and fine lines.
I have heard that if you suffer with contact dermatitis, allergies, milia or tiny cysts under the eyes DO NOT use this product. I don't know why but if I have heard this then it can't be good.
