Korres Vitamin E Silicone Free Face Primer

I do not like the texture of many face primers, especially the heavier ones, so I always look for ones that are more lotion-like.  I've used several, but this is one of my favourites. 

The texture is smooth, and neither thin nor thick. 

It has a light, fresh, pleasant scent.

I feel it applies very much like a moisturizer, and I can not feel it on my face at all, even though I know I apply it.  I rarely wear foundation, but it performs well.  My foundation is smooth, even, and lasts over 7 hours. 

Here is the simple look I did with the primer and foundation.  I was wearing Armani Eyes to Kill eyeshadow, and I must say, it scores major points for lasting through the pool and a shower, with hardly a crease!!!

After water activities:

Oops!! Almost forgot.... back to the primer!  I like it, and if I used foundation more often, I might repurchase.  The $28 price tag might be a deterrent to some... but totally worth it if you have any sensitivities to silicone and are in the market for a good primer.  Myself, I don't have any physical aversions to silicone itself that I know of, but I don't like it on my face and I haven't had a lot of luck getting the foundations I wear to react well with a lot of silicone-based primers.  Korres products are also natural, and that is surely a plus! 


  1. Hmm. I'm pretty happy with the primer I've got but I am running low and this is about the same price as the stuff I'm using right now so maybe I'll switch over and see if I notice a difference at all. Hopefully I can find it.

  2. I've tried this one and it does nothing for me. It's as if I'm wearing no primer at all haha... I guess I need the silicone on my face :D In re: your comment, why did you "used to" like UD? Do you know something I don't? Please don't tell me they test on animals...

  3. @Maryam Nooo definitely not!! I guess I should have said used to about some products, not the brand, sorry!! I just use other stuff now- mainly Inglot for e/s- outgrew all the glitter in a lot of the UD shadows. and Milani is my go to for e/l instead of the 24/7 they keep coming off too fast. Still love UD Primers they will always be my faves!
