Today I thought that I would share a quick review on the No. 28 Primer Serum from Hourglass, a product that I've recently fallen in love with. Before I begin here's some info from Sephora:
"A richly concentrated, intensely hydrating, and dual-purpose oil blend serum that treats your skin as it prepares for makeup."
"This silky, luxurious oil blend glides on to strengthen the skin's natural moisture barrier, even out pores, and shield against environmental aggressors. The formula's hydrating action helps to create a refined and retexturized surface for makeup. Skin appears dewier, younger, and more luminous."
This primer is also formulated without parabens, sulfates, phtalates, and synthetic dyes.
I just have a sample here, but it's quite a generous one. This primer can be purchased in two sizes: 0.33 oz for $26CAN or 1 oz for $75CAN. I can see myself purchasing the smaller size once I'm done with this sample because I really do love it!
First of all, you don't need much product; a small dab is all you need for your entire face. The consistency is that of a serum (obviously) and is neither too thin or too thick. It applies easily and really does a lovely job at smoothing out the skin. It feels hydrating and helps any dry patches you might have so it's ideal for those with dry skin. Like the claims state, the skin also appears dewy and luminous. Overall, it just feels very luxurious!
While very soft and smooth once applied, I want to say that it's also the tiniest bit tacky, but it's hardly noticeable and doesn't interfere with foundation application. It simply helps your foundation to stick and last so that it still looks nice and fresh by the end of the day.
In short, I love this stuff and would definitely recommend it!
