I have been getting up at 5am since starting my new job. Did you just cringe? Yeah, me too. Needless to say, my skin hasn’t been looking its most radiant. Luckily for me, I was able to try a couple of the new Clarins SOS Primers, which are formulated with Sea Lily (for 24 hour hydration), White Tea, Lampsanol and Furcellaria, which deliver antioxidant defense, and Mother of Pearl Pigments, which aid in correcting any imperfections.
I have been applying both primers (my own little concoction of the Rose, and Universal Light) after moisturizer, but before foundation for the perfect hydrating, radiance boosting base. I found that my foundation applied more evenly, separated less throughout the day (wear time is especially important to me as I am out of the house from 6:30am to 7:40pm!), and in general, helped my skin to have more of a glow about it. All huge advantages, to me.
On weekends, when I don’t have to wake up before the sun, I can absolutely see applying the Rose Primer on its own, sans foundation, for a little no-makeup-makeup day (add a coat of mascara and a tinted balm, and I’m good to go). Brighter skin means a brighter Saturday in my book 😉
