I'll admit that I was sceptical about the cream version of the GOSH velvet touch foundation primer. I had not liked the gel version, mainly because it is more suited to oilier skins and I found myself giving it away. I think it was the first time I had seen a primer available for a reasonable price and since then you can't move for primers on the High Street.
I was delighted to see the cream version when I was in Ireland over Christmas and I kicked myself for not buying it there and then (there was a huge queue and Euros were strong against Sterling blah blah blah).
I've been using it a bit lately as a base but it can be used as a moisturiser too, I have preferred moisturisers with SPF that I use during the day. But on a night out this would be great to keep my skin hydrated.
Did this work for me? Yes and very well indeed. Let's be honest, there isn't much of a wrinkle filling effect but what it did do was to lessen the settling in to fine lines that you can sometimes see after a few hours. A nice bonus, my make up did remain fresher for longer and resisted the need for powder later on in the day. So I like it and I would buy it again, I prefer it over silica based gels for my combination to dry skin type. Well done GOSH, this is a great little product for the price.
The Primer Cream is around £12.99 for a 30ml pump dispenser from Superdrug and other online stockists.
Now on to the Bronzing Shimmer Powder in 001 Bronze. In the picture you can see that the stripes are good for asian skin tones, not too much pink and plenty of brown. When you open up yours you will notice a lot of gold glitter on top, do not be put off by this, a couple of brushes and it's gone, leaving behind the gorgeous not overly glittery and subtle bronzer shades. I love all of the shades. Since I began using this, it has made it in to my everyday make up kit, it doubles as a blush/bronzer and eye palette. The colours are natural and harmonising with my Indian skin tone. I am delighted to have found a bronzer which works with my skin tones.
The Bronzing Shimmer Powder is £7.99 for a 9g compact from Superdrug in the UK.
