Skinfood Black Egg Pore Gel Base Review

Gift - $10.98 (£6.73)


This was gift from my friend Jasmin~ (Thank you! ^__^) 

Description of the product taken from the Skinfood website:
"A pore-refining primer gel with a velvety finish that improves the appearance of enlarged pores while preparing skin for makeup. The apricot colour base brightens lacklustre skin tones."

The primer comes in pearl-essence white tube, with a egg shaped twist lid. Simple yet interesting. The tube packaging makes it easy to use and very hygienic. 

The primer is an apricot colour, which I love as it corrects and evens out my skin tone, it also brightens up my tired looking skin. The primer does have a light coverage, so you can actually use it on its own like a BB cream. It has a gel texture, with a little silicone. It glides onto the skin nicely and blends in perfectly. I love how it instantly fills in my enlarged pores, making my skin appear smooth. It looks very natural and gives the illusion that pores didn't exist. 

I apply he gel base after my skincare, before applying my BB cream or foundation. This really does help my makeup last longer, which is great. Although it is not a feature, the base does slight help control my oils for a few extra hours too.

Rating: 9/10

Pros:
  • Great packaging - easy to use and hygienic
  • Corrects skin tone and brightens up skin
  • Has light coverage
  • Can use it on it own like a sheer BB cream
  • Blends into skin perfectly
  • Filled in pores
  • Provides oil control
Cons:
  • Has a unique scent that some people may not like
Would I repurchase?: Yes! (although I didn't buy this one xDD but if it did you know... ^^)

Would I recommend?: Most definitely! This is my current favourite primer. Instantly blurs out enlarge pores and corrects skin tone. Helps my makeup last longer and stay in place. Whilst it also helps to keep my oils at bay for a few hours longer too. ^^ An awesome product indeed.

Have you tried any Skinfood products? ^.^
