Product Review: Fresh Prime & Glow

Fresh Prime & Glow Set, US$10.00
Fresh Prime & Glow Set, US$10.00

I bought this at the checkout at Sephora for $10.00 awhile ago. I am a big sucker for rosewater scent, even though I don’t even use primers on a regular basis, I bought this because of the nice smell.

What the set includes:
0.17 oz Rose Freshface Primer
0.17 oz Twilight Freshface Glow

What they are:
Rose Freshface Primer, a lightweight, silicone-free lotion, fills in pores and smoothes over imperfections to create a flawless finish. Twilight Freshface Glow is an illuminating sheer cream that instantly imparts a stunning, yet natural-looking radiance to all skintones.

The Rose Freshface primer smells like natural rosewater, which it really is. I loved the smell and how it wasn’t made with silicone; instead, it felt more like a moisturizer, though a light one. It wasn’t too light, just medium. I loved the scent, and how the product felt, even though it didn’t really fill in the lines or pores, or extend the wear of base makeup. If you are looking for a real primer that extends the wear of your foundation, this isn’t it. I use it like a moisturizer – it hydrates and smells good.

The Twilight Freshface Glow, on the other hand, is a very nice, sheer cream that gives you a subtle glow. I loved how natural this looks, without any obvious white, silver or gold cast. I wouldn’t recommend this for oily skin because it can make you look like you got oily; but on normal to dry skin (mine is dry), this looks good. The radiance softens the look of fine lines on my forehead, though it has no other properties.

As primers, I wouldn’t recommend them, but as a moisturizer and illuminating cream, I love them both. Definitely will repurchase the Rose Freshface Primer in full size!
