Beauty Review: Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray


What It Is:

This silicone-free and cruelty-free primer mist from Skindinavia claims to lower the temperature of the skin, with the use of the skincare brand’s Temperature Control Technology. As a result, the primer states that it will offer a smooth canvas to apply makeup, despite factors like summertime heat and humidity. The spray claims to offer a lightweight and long-wearing solution, created to last up to 16 hours on the visage.

Skindinavia states that its primer spray is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, which means that it won’t clog the pores. The formula includes aloe vera leaf extract (known to moisturize and soothe skin), willow bark extract for anti-inflammatory benefits, Vitamin E acetate which acts as an antioxidant, and soy protein for an even complexion.

The primer is applied before adding makeup, by spraying the product across the face two to four times in an “X” and “T” shape.

What We Thought:

At first, it can be tricky to master the application technique for Skindinavia’s primer. It can take several tries before the primer is spritzed evenly across the face. However, the first whiff revealed a light, natural scent which won’t overpower beauty addicts with sensitive noses.

Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray promises a lightweight feel, which it luckily offered to our slightly oily summertime skin. The spray also managed to create a matte, oil-free surface for a makeup application. Unlike traditional primers, the barely there feel of the spray added to a minimalist summertime beauty look.

The spray stayed in place throughout an eight hour day, and thankfully did not irritate our sensitive skin.

Pro: The spray offers a lightweight application, smooth surface for makeup and did not have an overwhelming fragrance

Con: For beauty lovers in a morning rush, it can take a couple of attempts to master the “X” and “T” spray application technique for easy even coverage.
