I live and work in an environment where preserving our resources and protecting our health are major priorities. When I came across Walgreen's Ology brand of healthy home products, I wanted to try these natural products and see for myself if they were as effective as other products in the same category.

I suffer from pain in my wrists, legs, and back. Since I work in an office setting, I can't use pain relief products or creams with a strong smell due to the small environment. I end up suffering throughout the day and only have relief when I'm home.

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
