The Ordinary Primer Review

The Ordinary Primer Review

A silicone based primer. From affordable skincare brand The Ordinary. Result. Love me a silicone primer. Smoothing, pore minimising, a great makeup base.

The Ordinary Primer

If you’re a fan of the Benefit POREfessional Face Primer, £26, or the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, £26, then this is right up your street.

And you’re gonna be quids in. Rolling in it. Because The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer is just £3.90.

The Ordinary Primer Swatch

The Ordinary describes it as a high-adherence blurring surface smoother and primer. And lo and behold, it does what it says on the tin. Smoothes, blurs pores and fine lines and makes your makeup last longer.

The Ordinary Primer Swatch

It has a lovely thick texture that manages to feel both hydrating and mattifying. The packaging is simple yet sleek, and super travel-friendly. At a super wallet-friendly price.

Highly recommended.

Til next time,

    Why have I been spending £30 on primer? Definitely switching to this one from now on, I’ve recently just bought the ordinary retinol serum and I’m in love. Feel like this brand is a hidden gem 💎 x

    Have you noticed if it helps with shine and oil in T-zone?
    I have Smashbox one and it’s alright but I’m tempted to try this one 🙂

      I have a dry t-zone! I know, so weird. So can’t really judge it on oil control, but I think it would do as good a good as the Smashbox. H x
