Hi everyone! I thought I'd do a review of product/s that I am using since I have time on my hands. Hopefully, I won't get too lazy to update. And yes, I keep saying that I am lazy because I really am.
So, the first product I decided to review is pureglow's mineral serum primer. :) I got it from
Ms. Jamie Tan the owner of the site is very helpful and accommodating - I have been purchasing stuff from her for more than a year I think. I started out with her venus and mars products and I kept ordering from her since all her products are effective and as I said, she is really nice. Having to deal with a lazy or grumpy seller is just isn't my cup of tea.
Product description from http://pureglow.multiply.com -
"PUREGLOW's MINERAL YOUTHFUL SKIN BENEFITTING PRIMER contains Rose powder, Red Clay, Olive Squalene, Silica, Vit E, Tea Trea extracts perfectly blended to make your face oil and shine free, healthy, hydrated and make your makeup stay on LONGER than you can imagine. :) The primer comes in a mauve hue but is COLORLESS upon application. It also FEELS so LIGHT on the skin!"
Here is a picture of the primer I grabbed from Ms. Jamie's site:
(I think I'm supposed to put a picture of the product I have here but then, mine's almost empty, that's why I decided to write a review about this product anyway. I have been thinking of ordering it again.)
I have been using this as my everday primer. I apply about two pumps of the product on my face. Even if I don't put makeup on, I still use it, because it makes my skin smooth and silky. It has an earthy mauve color, and isn't clear like some primers but I really don't mind since it comes as colorless when applied. It does make makeup application easier since my skin is smoother and the brushes and sponge just glide on whenever I use it.
It does make my makeup stay on longer and I don't get as oily as I usually do (Please note that my skin is really really oily). It also helps cover my large pores and evens out my skin.
Pureglow's primer is also budget friendly since the 20ml bottle is only Php 335. Compared to other high-end products on the market, which I buy every now and then, Pureglow doesn't disappoint. It is fairly as competitive in terms of performance. One of the best parts is it doesn't hurt the pocket.
The only downside to this product is the packaging :( Mine has spilled for countless times whenever I bring it with me. But then again, it's the primer inside and not the packaging that I am after.
So if I were to give it a score it would be - 4.5/5
