I’ve been on the search for a good primer as my skin has changed over the last few years – I’m not the spring chicken I once was and I don’t just want to keep slapping on more heavy foundation to brighten up my tired skin. I need my tried and tested foundation to stay on throughout the day, without drying out and for my skin to be brightened up and smoothed out a bit.

So I have been using Benefit That Gal primer for the last couple of months, and I have to say I really like it. It’s really smooth and light to apply, only needing a small amount applied with fingers to cover my face. Like all Benefit products, the packaging is lovely as is the smell – the primer has raspberry and camomile in the ingredients, helping to sooth skin.

It can be worn alone to give your skin a bit of a glow, or under make up. It has given my complexion the lift it needs and when it comes to 3pm in the afternoon on a busy day at my desk at work, I no longer feel like I need to totally reapply my make up!
