  • To refresh and hydrate your skin
  • To give your skin a healthy glow

I love the added skin benefits in the Vitamin Glow Primer, in addition to the vitamin boost for your skin there are many skin loving ingredients including:

  • Vitamins B, C and E – full of antioxidants to boost your skins health
  • Niacinamide – to boost your skins hydration whilst protecting it from pollutants and toxins

The Photo Finish Vitamin Glow primer has a lovely lightweight water-gel consistency which has a the perfect amount of slip to make application easy and effortless, I find two pumps is my perfect amount. It immediately feels cooling and refreshing once in contact with skin, giving it and myself a lift! It absorbs into my skin easily leaving my complexion lovely and smooth. If you love citrus scents you will enjoy the Vitamin Glow primer, it has the most delicious and refreshing subtle citrus scent I almost want to eat it! (I wouldn’t recommend you try to!)

Applies and absorbs easily

If you are regular reader you will know I love a healthy glow and the Vitamin Glow Primer does not disappoint giving my skin a healthy touch of natural luminosity. It works brilliantly as you would expect as a base for my makeup with the right amount of tack to grip and enable my foundation to glide on without emphasising any of my problem areas and disguising the appearance of my pores. I also love to wear it alone for its skin benefits and added touch of glow! I love how soft it leaves my skin feeling and is a great addition to my daily routine nourishing and hydrating my skin whilst increasing the longevity of my makeup. A wonderful primer and a keeper!
