Face Primer Review: Skinhour Mattifying Day Cream

on , , , ,


I will start my 'Best Makeup Primers (for Oily Skin) Series' with the first primer I've ever used... Skinhour's.

Skinhour Petite, 250php (~$5) from URU Galleria

I am recommending Skinhour's Mattifying Day Cream to every girl starting out with primers. Why? Because it gives good value to your money. It serves as a good moisturizer, sunblock and a makeup base.

Their mini tubs (15g net) can go as low as 180php (~$4) which will last you at least a month. But it goes out of stock really, really fast.

From the Skinhour multiply site:

A day cream that is non-clogging and oil free. Controls excess sebum the whole day. Also acts as makeup base that makes makeup long lasting. Contains pineapple extract known for its skin clearing properties and carrot to fight skin aging. Serenity variant gives a sweet yet subtle surprise to one’s face. The day cream also has SPF 15 for sun protection.

What the Mattifying Day Cream is packed with:

deionized aqua, organic mango butter, glyceryl stearate, sweet almond oil, organic goat milk, titanium dioxide, pineapple and carrot extract, a-tocopherol, sodium gluconate, organic non-solvent fragrance oils

the creamy product is packed with goodness your face'll love. really.

What I love about it:
  • proudly Filipino made!
  • unlike other primers that felt kinda sticky on my oily face post-application, skinhour's lived up to its name--- a mattifier. no oily, sticky moments!
  • my face makeup stayed put all day! i only blotted twice, max, during all those days I used it under my mineral make up.
  • transforms my skin into a perfect canvas for my makeup
  • SPF 15
  • moisturizing
  • locally available and cheap

  • the uber fruuuuity scent (pineapple, I think)
  • the container. it's an unhygienic tub. lazy me still needs to use a spatula to get the glorious primer out.
  • it broke my chin out a little during the first few days. purging stage? beats me. (antidote: clinique's 3-step! yup, I still moisturize... and it stops breaking me out)
Skinhour's Mattifying Day Cream is a superb primer because it delivers. I'd recommend this product to those girls, especially oily-skinned ones like me, who would want to put an end to endless retouching sessions.

Do watch out for my upcoming posts on more effective face primers... till next time!
