Review: After many fellow beauty fanatics suggested I try Face Base Primer, I finally bit the bullet... and so glad I did because this primer is awesome. The primer is eerily similar to another Australian brand which makes me wonder if it has been made in the same factory. The packaging, ingredients and formula all resemble the ‘other’ primer. That aside, Face Base Primer is a lovely lightweight cream-gel consistency that does not irritate skin. The formula glides on with ease, the scent is soft and subtle, and skin is prepped with Chamomile and Vitamin E while the primer prevents makeup from wearing off. Although it claims to fill fine lines, I tend to disagree as the formula seems to absorb in the skin rather than sit on the surface. While it is oil-free, there are parabens in the formula which tend to be necessary to ensure the formula works effectively but it is worth mentioning regardless. For a little over $10, Face Base Primer is a winner in my eyes.
