I’ve professed my love for the Laura Geller Spackle Primers a couple of times here on my blog with the Even Tone version and the Colour Correcting version, and the newest to my collection is the Laura Geller Spackle Soothing Makeup Primer. The Laura Geller Spackle Soothing Makeup Primer contains natural botanical extracts and antioxidants help calm irritation, while green pigments diminish the appearance of redness. It is described as having an ultra-hydrating formula which glides on smooth to create the perfect canvas for flawless makeup.
The Laura Geller Spackle Primers are such great value as they contains 59ml of product and retail for £25 which is amazing when you consider the Benefit POREfessional Primer contains only 22.5ml for £24.50 so they’re a much better value option and they come in a variety of options for different skin concerns which I like as you can use more than one at the same time to treat the different concerns.
The Laura Geller Spackle Soothing Makeup Primer has quite a thick consistency with a strong green tint which looks a little alarming when first applying it to the skin but the green tint does dissipate into the skin and cleverly cancels out any redness I might be experiencing. I don’t suffer from redness in my cheeks, but I do get redness and inflammation with blemishes and the green tint works wonders at reducing the redness which then makes it a lot easier to cover them with foundation and concealer.
This isn’t just a colour correcting primer as it also really helps to moisturise and prep the skin for makeup, and the consistency reminds me of the Hydrating Spackle except the Soothing Spackle offers the hydration and the colour correcting benefits. I think this primer would be really effective for those who suffer with rosacea as it contains such a strong green tint, and I also think it would be effective to help reduce redness from accidental sunburn too as we’ve all been there – it’s a nightmare to try and cover.
I really like how soothing this primer is on the skin as it feels very gentle, but it helps to reduce inflammation and any discomfort I may be experiencing with my skin too. I feel like it’s a real multitasker and a good addition to anyone’s primer collection, especially as it helps to prolong the weartime of makeup too as well as colour correcting the skin, soothing inflammation and acting as a moisturiser.
Have you ever tried any of the Laura Geller Spackle Primers?
