Laura Mercier Pure Canvas Primers

 

Primers are literally a godsend for every woman on the planet. Especially for those who struggle with patchy coverage and end up with a melted, messy face within an hour of applying make-up. However, great-quality primers are like a pearl in an oyster: Rare and precious.

 

I got the opportunity to try out Laura Mercier’s Silicone-Free, Pure Canvas Primers. In this blog, I will elaborate on my experience with each of the five types of Primers: Perfecting, Blurring, Hydrating, Illuminating and Protecting.

 

First comes: The Perfecting Primer. This product glided seamlessly onto my skin. It prevented my face from turning into an oil reserve, which is an achievement in itself! Moreover, I think the presence of Green Tea Extract and Vitamin C made my skin tone even.

 

The second savior of the day: Blurring Primer. I am utterly obsessed with those Snapchat filters which give a soft glow to your face and blur out blemishes. You can imagine my excitement when I found out that this primer can do just that – in real world! It also kept my skin nourished and yet again absorbed any excess layer of oil on my face. At the end of the day, my skin looked flawless!

 

The third knight in shining armor: Protecting Primer. This primer is actually a knight, for it protects your skin dutifully. While being infused with SPF, it provides a protective layer on your skin against harmful sun rays, which slows down the formation of wrinkles and keeps your complexion in check. It was too early to determine the long-term effects of this primer, but I did notice that my skin improved within a few days.

 

The fourth primer I tried was: The Hydrating Primer. It ensures that the natural moisture of your skin keeps it nourished. The dryer parts of my face (apart from the T-zone), which would quite often give my make-up a patchy look, felt more moisturized and healthy after constant use.

 

Lastly, I experimented with The Illuminating Primer. This primer actually gave my skin a glowing, radiant look. Being a mother of three children, it is difficult to look bright and active everyday. However, this primer brought out my skin’s natural glow and gave me a fresh, healthy look everyday!

 

My experience with all five of these primers was amazing. All of them suited my skin for different make-up looks. Laura Mercier’s primers are indeed as valuable as a pearl in an oyster.

Overnight Face Masks

 

Flawless skin starts with a flawless skincare routine. The principle behind the sleeping face mask is that you counterbalance the active ingredients by absorbing it into your skin, before going to bed. The active ingredients slowly release in all respects to your face, giving the utmost pamper of the lifetime, simply without any heavy lifting.

Hypothesis? You may be following your skincare routine scrupulously, but your skin still seems to be droughty. Your current, skincare products might not be efficient, and you may need to change your direction.

Enter the era of overnight face masks: a super-sonic moisture masks that would descend deeply into your skin. An overnight face mask is the definition of mystery. You implement it before you sleep, and you do not need to rinse off until morning. On the exterior, they seem like reverence night creams. Since they are nourishing and tend to be dense in texture than average moisturizers. But these bad boys, are more than that!

The Myth of Perfect Skin

The Myth of Perfect Skin

Have you always been scared of putting up a selfie without filters or makeup? Have you been bullied because of your acne, uneven skin tone or freckled face? Do you constantly shy away from cameras due to this?

Then, repeat after me:

Perfect skin does not exist.
Perfect skin does not exist.
Perfect skin does not exist.

Because, this is the truth. The society has created these unattainable standards of how a “healthy” skin should look, i.e. clear, white, hairless and smooth. The reason behind these standards being unattainable is that no one can ever have “the” perfect skin.
