Oriflame Perfecting Face Primer
Ok. I’m very new to face primers. I hardly own any apart from a MAC Prep eye primer. I have an oily skin and suffer from breakouts so foundations and bb creams randomly lay on my makeup stash untouched.
But there are times when I do need to base my face for an occasion and that is when I need such products. Thought of trying a face primer after all the hype it created that it did make makeup last longer. I needed one considering the hot and super humid city I live in.
So finally got hold of it and this is the Oriflame Perfecting Face Primer.

My take on Oriflame Perfecting Face Primer:
This primer comes in a transparent tube with a black airtight screw lid. It has the oriflame logo printed on it in black. It is a 30 ml product so it will easily fit inside your bag or even tiny purses. The plastic tube makes it travel friendly hence no fear of breakage or spills. I have had horrible experience with a glass product, which created a total mess in my vanity.
Texture: It is light creamy in consistency. The formula is white in color and feels matte after application. It has a moisturizing effect and gives a dewy look to one’s face and makes makeup application easier. It blends easily which is a pro. It gets a little oily for me though but I don’t mind it much as long as I’m in an air-conditioned area. It claims to reduce pores but it didn’t work on me though. The one thing I liked about it is that it didn’t give me breakouts thankfully but I wont recommend it for ladies with oily skin.
Scent: I exactly don’t know how to describe the scent but it has no chemical smell.
Staying power: Even though it made my skin feel a bit oily, the makeup lasted 5 to 6 hours on me.
What I liked about Oriflame Perfecting Face Primer:
- Blends easily
- No breakouts
- Travel friendly
- Last fairly well
What I don’t liked about Oriflame Perfecting Face Primer:
- Doesn’t reduce pores as claimed
- Not suitable for warm weather
- Makes skin oily
Would I recommend? No for oily skin. Once was enough for me.
