My Anatomy professor once taught me that everything applied to the skin is always absorbed into the body and bloodstream. Imagine how it must feel to be vegan or vegetarian and to discover that your beauty products contained animal by-products and harsh chemicals?

After years of coloring my hair (I've had gray hair since I was 12!), constant hair dryer use, and heat damage due to curling irons, my hair no longer likes me.
What makes things worse is when my shampoo and conditioner make my hair color fade more quickly and the grays are visible again. I'm only in my mid 20's I shouldn't be graying like this!

Sephora had a sale a few months ago that offered 2 Korres face primers for the price of 1. I stocked up enough to last me in case I get robbed. At least I'll have my dignity and well-hidden primers. Nothing more dangerous than a robber who likes to look good on your dime.
I love this primer because it's silicone-free, is 99% natural, and is formulated with antioxidants and vitamin E. If you have sensitive skin like me, ANYTHING will break me out. Silicone primers feel disgusting and greasy. They make my T-zone shine like bright lights in a football stadium. Except my T-zone doesn't look as exciting.
If you wear mineral, powder, or liquid foundation, primer is a MUST. The Korres face primer's formula is not thick or oily. It's more of a lightweight cream and almost resembles a moisturizer.
Apply this primer over your moisturizer or sunscreen. Some beauty experts also suggest that applying face primer at night over your moisturizer or night treatment helps seal the product so your skin will absorb it more.
A must have for anyone with sensitive or dry skin, skin that's prone to breakouts, or anyone who wants a natural primer that doesn't have parabens, synthetic dyes and fragrances, sulfates, Tryclosan, PPG, MEA, DEA, TEA, and Formaldehyde Donors --> these pose potential risks to your health.
I'm not sponsored for this review and I bought these primers out of my own pockets.
What's my rating?
4.5 out of 5 (minus .5 for the price, but primers are usually expensive anyway)
One tube will last me 4-5 months
