Benefit ‘That Gal’ Primer

Although I’m not a massive make up wearer, primer is my godsend. I tend to stay away from foundations and concealers, but primer I wear on a daily basis. I've been through a lot of primer brands and now have a new ultimate favourite: Benefit’s That Gal primer, which was sent over to me from Arnotts.

I was already a fan of Benefit’s Pore-fessional, but I have to admit that That Gal is much better. It’s lightweight and silky, leaving my face feeling smooth and looking bright. I’ve been wearing it in the mornings, before work, and love that it lasts all day, keeping my face looking fresh until it’s time to leave at 5.30.

The silky texture is great as it doesn't feel like there’s anything heavy on your face at all, and you’re free to do any other make up over it if you want. My face has been pretty dull lately (holiday season has meant a lot of junk food) and That Gal does a great job reviving my face and letting me look alive when I need it the most. My skin is pretty well behaved most of the time, but primer like this is always good to have in your make up armoury. The light texture means that it gives me the lift my face needs, but doesn’t overdo it in any way. It also smells so lovely and sweet.

I would definitely recommend That Gal, especially if you’re a fan of light make up. It’s something I will re-buy for sure and love the light glow it gives.

You can click here for Benefit make up and Arnotts also has a wide range of marvellous mirrors.

What primers do you use? Have you tried Benefit’s That Gal?

I really like this primer, it adds such a pretty glow to my skin, even when I don't wear foundation!

I have never used a primer before; but I'm a HUGE fan of Benefit products - I may need to give this one a shot! Great review, Sherin! :)

I've actually never tried Benefit's That Gal primer before. I've tried a couple others, but they were just okay. I might have to check this one out! I love that this one is a brightening formula!

I use Porefessional but think I may have to try this, I could use a bit of glow right now!

I really love Benefit products for a long time. I've used Smashbox, Yves Rocher, and Lancome. Will have to try this one! :-)

I can't imagine my life without foundation - total make-up junkie here :) I used to use primer but with putting foundation over, I didn't really see a difference when I went without. Still, this post reminded m of my love of Benefit and makes me think I should give their primer a try ;)

Sounds great, will have to look into it. I've been looking for a good primer for a long time :)

I don't actually use primers and so I haven't tried this one, but I've heard a ton of good things about it!

Couture Carrie said...

Okay, I'm a light to no makeup wearer, and I'm so horrified to ask, but what exactly is "primer"? I've heard the term before but never paid much attention to it since I don't wear makeup a lot.

*hides in shame*

PS. I'm sorry I haven't been around here lately. I've been enormously busy and have been neglecting blogger. I've missed you!

I use a lot of Benefit's products,
but I still have to use that primer. Got to try that based on your review, thanks.

I have never used one before but I would like to.

I have never heard about it :( - maybe we dont have it in Denmark ?

Harriet said...

Ooh this sounds good! I've not yet found a primer that really works for me, but maybe this is the one?!
