Priming your face before foundation is a really important step so you want to make sure that you choose the right product. This is not always a simple task especially because everyone's skin requires different things and there are so many options these days! I realized how much I love this Bloom Primer when I found myself choosing it over my Face Of Australia one!

This is a lightweight primer which means that it's more comparable to a moisturiser than a waxy silicone product like Benefit POREfessional. This is great for everyday use because it's a simple and easy step before your foundation which makes makeup application much smoother. I definitely notice that it prolongs the wear of my foundation and face products as well and keeping my skin moisturized from the Shea Butter and Algae extract which it contains.
The only aspect which could be improved with this primer is adding an SPF since it doesn't contain any and you have to use a separate product to protect your skin from the sun. If sun protection isn't a high priority then you can always rely on the SPF in your foundation.

As previously mentioned, the consistency is like a moisturiser so it's white but blends in completely transparent. I love the non-greasy formula of this product and it leaves a really lovely velvet feeling after application. I notice a significantly positive difference when applying my foundation with this product.
This primer is quite a reasonable price at $29.95 and you can purchase it from Target, Myer or online. For this price you receive 50ml of product which is a fair bit considering you only need about a pea sized amount for each use so it will definitely last you a good three months or longer.

Let me know if you have tried Bloom products before!
