Dermalogica AGE Smart SkinPerfect Primer SPF30

By Melmeko @melmeko

Hey beautiful peeps everywhere  :-h   Here’s another post for you to check out, quite in depth, but I was very passionate about this product and wanted everyone to know  ;)  I’m a big fan of Dermalogica and personally use several of their skin care products, so I was keen to learn about this product when I first heard about it’s upcoming launch.  I got a sent a sample sachet at time, but I was literally doing the happy dance   \:D/  when Darren from The Facial Companyasked me if I was interested in test driving it and sharing the experience on my blog.  Yes please!   >:/  I was ecstatic to say the least and I think you will find my review reflects that general feeling. :D
Dermalogica AGE Smart SkinPerfect Primer SPF30The SkinPerfect Primer, belongs to the Dermalogicaprofessional skin care family and has been introduced as a new addition to the widely popular AGE Smart, anti-ageing collection.  The multi-use wonder product clearly closes the gap between skin care and cosmetics.  Boasting the ability to not only prime the skin, so it’s ready for makeup application and to ensure durability, it also includes a subtle tint that promotes radiance and a more even skin tone.  Along with broad spectrum UVA and UVB sun defence and protection against free radical damage, moreover, it acts as a skin care treatment to control the signs of premature ageing, featuring a superior blend of peptides and active ingredients that combine to achieve a firmer, younger-looking complexion.  (*)
The Dermalogica AGE Smart SkinPerfect Primer SPF30 comes in a 22ml long, slimline, squeezable plastic tube with a screw-off lid and is easily recognised as an AGE Smart product by the maroon coloured stripe stamped on each item in the range.  Like all Dermalogica products, it’s mildly scented with an aromatic herbal fragrance  @};-  that is calming, non-offensive and smells nothing like a typical sunscreen product.  The ultra lightweight, silicone based formula has a velvety texture that glides on like silk to instantly transforms my appearance, >-)  ;))  smoothing the texture, filling in lines, minimising pores and hiding minor imperfections, whilst absorbing surface oils for a non-greasy, flawless finish.  The primer is quite pigmented with a neutral, color correcting tint that evens out and brightens my complexion and improves the overall look of my skin.  :)>-
I am thrilled to have found an anti-ageing product/primer combination that compliments my oily skin to perfection. Not to mention the fact that includes decent sun protection as well, which is a mere miracle in my eyes, with my longstanding dilemma of forever trying to find a suitable daily SPF product that doesn’t leave my skin feeling like it was suffocated by a thick greasy film, waiting to slide straight off anyway within the first few hours of the day - taking my made up face with it, NOOOOO!!!  Why Me!  :(  So, based on my own little beauty crisis (yes the joys of having oily skin – oops joys??? No let’s scrap that – it’s mostly been a fully blown nightmare, EEK!  ~X(   ) I admit, finding a product that works been a constant battle my whole life, especially adding to the fact that I live in the stinking hot tropics, which is difficult at the best of times, but even worse when the temperature rises, during summer (which I hate – did I mention I hate summer??  Well I’m sure you worked that out, but I really do coz my skin goes all crazy and my facial products turn into my worst enemy  :-<  ) but it’s a great relief to finally say that all changed this season; since introducing this new primer to my daily routine, I have gotten through the summertime blues, virtually unscathed.  #:-S
Dermalogica AGE Smart SkinPerfect Primer SPF30I consider this product as multi-tasking at it’s best!  =D>  After completing my usual morning skin care regime, instead of applying my usual moisturiser (generally an SPF version during for daytime wear, to avoid using yet another product) I’ve been skipping it altogether and opting for the primer in its place.  I normally wouldn’t consider neglecting the important moisturising step, as I’m very well aware that oily skin gets dehydrated too, however the powerful anti-ageing formulation has done justice, providing more than enough hydration, without feeling like a heavy mask and I love knowing that it won’t eventually just slip-slide away!  :x  By using fewer products, the lighter option has proven unbeatable and super effective during the humidity and my skin is looking better than ever!  ;;)  I never would have thought that I would be blessed enough to step out in public wearing minimal makeup, but the slight tint in the primer, along with the smooth canvas it creates, leaves my complexion uniform and perfectly polished.  :)  Now, all I do is apply a tiny bit of concealer on any noticeable imperfections, followed by a light dusting of powder and I am good to go.  :-*  Unlike other primers, this one doesn’t ball up when I layer on powdered cosmetics, nope regardless of what I use, it still works wonders and has the staying power to last all throughout the day. 
You may be disgruntled that tube is small and leans toward the expensive side,  :-S  but the key is not to use too much,  *-:)  because a little really does go a long way, with a pea-sized amount being sufficient for my whole face, using any more is not only wasteful, it could totally wreck the outcome and its intended finish.  I consider it worth every cent and fortunately I’ve found myself a new favorite primer - the dynamic, skin-loving Dermalogica AGE Smart SkinPerfect Primer SPF30 is all I need to disguise my flaws, prepare my skin and extend the life of my makeup look.  I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone, despite their age, you don’t need to have aging skin to enjoy the numerous benefits it proffers, so don’t hesitate just give it a try, because once you’ve discovered its magic you will be singing its praises right along with me.  <:-P
Have you tried this primer or have you sussed it out and given it some thought?  :-/ Does it sound like something that would appeal to you or do you have a special primer that you already swear by?  :-?  I'd be honoured if you could fill us in on what you think and leave a comment below.  :)
