Review: GOSH Velvet Touch Foundation Primer

Review: GOSH Velvet Touch Foundation Primer

Who is this review for?
Anyone who is looking for a primer or is curious about GOSH products

What is it?
This is a primer that is can be used on the skin before a foundation in order to keep skin smooth and make-up flawless.

As you can see this primer is in a pump bottle which pumps up the good sized amount to distribute over the face. You can see that this primer is a clear gel consistency and when applying it feels almost a bit greasy but the product absorbs into your skin and gives your skin, true to its name, a velvet touch and makes the surface of your skin smooth. This means you now have a smooth canvas for your application and makes applying foundation that much more easier.

This product contains 30ml of product which is equal to 1.0 fl oz

What does it claim to do?
This is what it says on the website:

"The colorless formula fills in fine lines and deep pores in the skin, creating a uniform, matte and unique, silky soft surface, enabling the easy and smooth application of foundation. The primer can be used after daily moisturizer or on clean skin. You get a unique and even finish when applying your foundation that will never look dry or patchy. Contains Aloe Vera and is preservative-free and fragrance-free.

NOW IN A CONVENIENT PUMP DISPENSER" - http://www.goshamericas.com/face.asp

How to use it
When using this product I am careful to only to use one pump at a time; you will probably find that this product goes a long way with just a small amount.
You should use this product after the moisturiser on your skin has settled and before your foundation or concealer. This product should be concentrated on dry patches, the forehead, under the eyes, around the eyes and chin. I find all my foundations and concealers work well with this primer but in particular a liquid foundation such as the Revlon Colorstay Foundation. Again there are not many rules as to how you use it; feel free to use your fingers, a brush or a sponge but I like to use my fingers just because it's easier and you won't lose the product like you would with a sponge.
Once the primer has settled on the skin you can go ahead and apply your make-up!

What it did for me
I love this product! I think this product really gives me a smooth canvas to work on! With the weather being particularly cruel to my skin lately, it's become very dry and patchy and my moisturiser doesn't do the job but this primer is a life saver. As it has moisturising properties I like to put this on regardless any make-up or not and when using it I like to massage it into the drier patches.
Don't be afraid of using it if you have oily skin either because I have combination skin; with my t-zone it can become very shiny and greasy and I have had no problems with it making me greasy. It really helps to give an easier application to make up, make your skin smooth, gives your skin more of a healthy, dewy sheen and it holds you rmake-up in place for the day!

The cost
In the UK you can purchase the primer at most Superdrugs at £12.72. You can also visit their website at http://www.goshcosmetics.com/ and purchase it online.

I would give this product a 4.5/5 stars! I really like this product, you can use it on your skin with or without make up and it really does the job. Unfortunately it is a bit expensive but I am in love all the same.

Hey Helen!!!

I have that primer haha and tbh I haven't seen any difference to my face (but maybe that's because I didn't pay attention to it at all. Haha.

But anyway, I like how you do reviews. It's very informative. Keep it up girly!
