Review: No.17 Photo Flawless Primer

Ahoy blogerinos, I hope you're all having a fab week!

I'm not usually a fan of face primers and I rarely use them but this was included in the No.17 3 for 2 offer and I thought I'd pick it up & give it a go.

No.17 Photo Flawless Primer

Boots say:

"Easy to use and effortlessly bendable, this 17 Photo Flawless Primer is designed to apply before foundation to smooth your skin and assist the application of your base, leaving skin even and fresh all day long."

I like the packaging (even though I've lost the lid to mine!) & I think it looks good for the price.

The primer itself is a clear gel like liquid, I would say it's alot runnier than other primers I've used & I would compare the texture to the Gosh primer.

I've used this primer 5 or 6 times now and I have to say I'm really not impressed with it.

I would say it smooths my skin out well and when applying foundation after if does feel smoother and go on easier. I do however think you have to use alot of product to get this effect, so even though it is fairly cheap I can see this product running out quite quickly.

I can't say I've noticed my foundation lasting any longer than normal when using this primer, this is marketed as one of the selling points of this primer and I have to say I was disappointed.

Would I buy this primer again? No.

Available in most Boots stores & online, priced £4.99 for 15ml.

Have you tried this primer, If so what did you think of it?

What is your favourite face primer?
