I have been in denial about the necessity of owning a primer for so long (thanks to my oily skin). Finally, I decided to add it to my beauty ‘must-haves’. Take it from me, my face is just terrible around 10:00 pm any day I wear makeup without primer. I have also tried MOM, the Nivea Aftershave and other ‘primer hacks’, which have their limitations.
Today’s post is featuring my latest (and current) favorite face primer.
I must admit that there is an evident difference between when I use a primer and when I decide to skip the routine. I usually follow all the makeup application protocols when I’m going for an event, knowing there might be chances of sweating and eventual excretion of those excess oils later in the day.
I’m currently using this Ponds Lasting Control Vanishing Face Primer: I’m actually on my second cup. I’ve really had many bad experiences with primers, however, there is a noticeable difference between when I use this particular primer and when I don’t. I got the initial cup for ₦4500, then the second, I got for ₦2,500… It depends on where you are buying from.
Anyway, I’m so glad I found it because now, I really can’t do without a primer and this Ponds face primer does justice to my kind of oily skin.
I’m still looking out for a better product that can give a long-lasting oil control for my face on makeup days, so…
