Gosh Apricot Velvet Touch Foundation Primer

Hey guys!

Are you on the search for velvety soft skin, minimised pores and no fine lines after you apply your foundation? Me too!

Today I have a review of the Gosh Apricot Velvet Touch Foundation Primer for you. I have to admit I only use primer for special occasions or when I feel my skin really needs it. I had used this primer before years ago and loved it so when we got to choose a product from Gosh at the Cork Beauty Blogger Meetup I made a beeline for it! 

This primer is actually an anti-ageing primer with it's main claim to soften fine lines and minimise pores and it does just that. My skin has changed over the past few years so when I first used this product it was quite dry. Now that I am more combination (dry cheeks with an oily t-zone) I am glad to say that this primer still works for me. If you are extremely oily or have very large pores I would stay away from this as it is intended for people who are more on the dry side. I would suggest the regular Velvet Touch Foundation Primer.

I use about two pumps over my entire face before applying my foundation. When I use primers I like to apply my foundation afterwards with a beauty blender so I don't move the primer underneath around too much. The whole point is so that your makeup stays in place and is flawless so moving a brush around on top sort of defeats the purpose in my opinion. I just use my fingers, no need for fancy brushes when using primers :)

Which primers are your favourite and why? Let me know in the comment below!

Bye beauties!
