Arbonne Makeup Primer [Review]

So I have a confession to make...

I've never ever used face primer before.

Those of you who can't live without your primers are probably staring at the screen in shock right now. How was she not using a primer?

I just never felt it was necessary to put a primer before my foundation. I was satisfied with how my foundation looked and stayed and I was basically too cheap to go out and buy a primer. 

So I was quite interested to try out the

Arbonne Makeup Primer

 RRP $50

I've never tried anything from Arbonne before, mainly because of the pain-in-my-wallet prices. 

Firstly, let me just say that after using this for a few weeks - I LOVE IT.

It has a pump which is ALWAYS appreciated ;)

It contains "Hyaluronic Filling Spheres, Horsetail Extract, Green Tea Leaf and Grapeseed Extract" . Sounds nice doesn't it? Apart from the uh - Horsetail Extract...but not to worry, Arbonne is vegan-friendly and doesn't test on animals!

It's also "free of parabens and talc" which is always a plus.
Arbonne is a hypoallergenic brand so perfect for all skin types, especially sensitive skin and I'm happy to say it didn't break me out!

When I applied this to my skin before foundation, I was amazed. It felt like I was literally applying butter onto my face. That sounds kinda gross, but trust me, it felt good.

It immediately got rid of any dry patches and I was touching my face all over because my skin just felt SO silky and smooth. It also made applying foundation like a dream.

How did my foundation wear?
I was super impressed. My foundation lasted all day, easily 8 hours, and my foundation was still looking flawless, covering what I wanted to cover. Without a primer, I get about 6 hours wear out of my foundation and my acne will be showing through. I also didn't get shiny or oily.

The only downfall is the price, but I am thoroughly enjoying this product and will definitely look into a drugstore primer after this finishes!

If you're looking to invest into a good primer, I definitely recommend the Arbonne Makeup Primer!
