Witch anti-blemish Primer

One product I don't seem to talk about enough is the current primer I have been using for over a year now: Witch Hazel anti-blemish skin clearing primer. I came across this on Rihannon Ashlee's YouTube channel awhile ago and she mentioned how great it was for stopping breakouts throughout the day..so curiosity getting the better of me and I gave it a shot. Ever since that day I have used this as part of my everyday make-up routine, I have changed it up from time to time with other primers but I always seem to come back to this one. I just have had no problems with it.
I did blog about this last year it was one of my first posts here. But obviously since then my skin has changed a lot - meaning my skin has improved dramatically and this primer plays a significant role to that.

What I like about this primer is it comes with a pump which is super handy when it comes to knowing how much you need. The pump is really handy because I always apply too much of creamy products on the back of my hands so this is useful to me.
Another thing I liked about this primer was the smell - a lot of the time if a product smells nice I usually get a good vibe about it so this definitely gave me those before even applying to my face. It squirts out in a very white, light cream consistency which looks and applies like a moisturizer.

I wouldn't go so far to say this was a 'miracle worker' for stopping spots appearing - but I have noticed a HUGE difference from last year and now. Before this when I wore my make-up for hours around 4-8 hours a day, I would by the end of it gain a few of those tiny white headed, unattractive spots. Since using this product those spots have never been seen since.

It definitely is a 'anti-blemish' primer because I have not suffered with any breakouts appearing through my make-up throughout days. Even though I love this primer to bits I have to admit it isn't the best primer for those who suffer with oily skin. I am one of those people and I do use products to reduce oils but, this product is NOT a primer for long lasting make-up. My make-up stays on all day but by a few hours it will need touched up..but that is normal for most people so it doesn't bother me too much.

Pros:
Stops blemishes appearing when wearing make-up
Easy to apply
Pleasant scent
Goes on like a moisturizer
Handy pump packaging
Tube lasts a very long time

Cons:
Isn't hyped up enough
Difficult to find in drugstores

I do really like this primer and I would go and say it was a miracle worker IF it has a built in formula to stop make-up from melting. But it doesn't bother me too much! other then that who doesn't love a primer that is prone to help stop blemishes from appearing!? amazing product highly recommend it.

Have you tried this primer?

  4. I used to love the Witch blue stick thing that like burned off spots, no idea what it is called! But I'm pretty impressed they have moved onto primers, I suffer more from breakouts than short lasting makeup so quite a good idea! Xx

  7. I use this and I'm always irritated about how little people talk about it. I wish it enhanced the staying power of makeup though.

  9. I've used this Primer before and from what I can remember really liked it! It did help keep breakouts at bay but I sometimes found the pump would pump out too much.
