GOSH Primer Plus Illuminating Skin Perfector

10th March 2016

For Spring releases, GOSH have definitely got the biggest range of new additions within the drugstore and one of those releases is the new GOSH Primer Plus Illuminating Skin Perfector, which joins the already existing GOSH Primer Plus Hydration Skin Perfector and they retail for £14.49 each. The GOSH Primer Plus Illuminating Skin Perfector is designed to visibly even the skintone, reduce any imperfections, smooth over pores and fine lines and impart an healthy natural glow.

The GOSH Primer Plus Illuminating Skin Perfector contains pearl pigments and colour pigments to deliver a dewy base which keeps the skin looking fresh all day. The primer is packaged within a black squeezable plastic tube, and it contains 30ml of product.

The packaging is quite simple, but I like how sleek it is and that I can control how much I want to use to minimise wastage.

The GOSH Primer Plus Illuminating Skin Perfector is a thick cream which reminds me of a BB cream in terms of consistency and also colouring as it contains a tint. You really only need a tiny amount as it spreads well over the skin so I’d recommend going in with a small amount first because the tint means you can’t really get away with applying too much as you’ll be left with very yellow looking skin.

The consistency of the primer is different from my usual primers as it doesn’t have any thickness to it, nor does it feel silicone-y or slimey.. it just feels like I’m applying a BB cream to my skin, and does feel lightweight once blended in but the yellow tint is still visible on my skin but that’s probably down to the fact I’m very pale but anybody with darker skin than mine would potentially get away with the yellow tint.

The GOSH primer doesn’t contain any shimmer particles whatsoever but it still somehow manages to leave my complexion looking radiant and glowing, and I just don’t know how it does it without any shimmer.

My skin definitely looks healthier for wearing this primer but I so wish it wasn’t so heavily tinted as I have a strong pink undertone and find that it’s just too warm toned for me to pull off which is a massive shame as I love it as a primer.

I could perhaps use the Illuminating Skin Perfector in combination with The Body Shop’s Lightening Drops to see if I can reduce the warm tone but if you have a warm undertone, I really do think you’d appreciate the luminosity this primer creates especially as it leaves an almost soft focus effect to the skin.
