One of my absolute favourite parts of summer is the simple fact that the lovely warm temperatures mean I can wear little to no makeup some days. Skin is almost always slightly flushed and glowing and my hair can be tamed with a hat or sunglasses. I love that. I’d take it any day over the constant attention needed in the winter. Winter brings dry skin needing moisture daily. Summer is quite the opposite.
A couple of years ago I found some beautiful hydrating skin sprays for summer use. These kinds of products – moisturizing sprays and makeup primer sprays fit my summer criteria of fast, refreshing and simple to use, or pack in a beach bag. Recently Skindinavia sent me a package of their makeup primer sprays in some different sizes. I used them a bit as the winter trailed off very slowly here, but now that summer is kicking it up a notch I am reaching for Skindinavia every morning.
Skindinavia makeup primer spray is a vitamin-based primer that creates a flawless makeup application. You shake the container well three to four times and then spray in an X or T across the canvas (your face). After it settles a second or two you can apply the rest of your makeup if needed. Made in the United States, Skindinavia Makeup Primer is oil-free, paraben-free, silicone-free.
This primer spray feels like a refreshing vitamin spray being applied to your skin. It sits well all day and doesn’t feel oily or heavy. Plus, it’s perfect for travel or simply for summer days at the beach. I love this spray for these warm weather days. Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray helps your makeup to set all day and stay in place. That’s another great application for summer use. (Now if only someone could make summer mascara that did the same thing.)
Cruelty free and good for all skin types, it is available in several different kits, with one specific kit available for brides (designed to keep your facial makeup camera ready all day.) I kind of wish I’d had that option 20 years ago when I got married. In fact, I could have used a product like this. And did you know, Skindinavia is a product Lady Gaga uses on tour?
Skindinavia products come in a variety of sizes and kits. The prices vary. A Makeup Primer Spray that is about 118 mls is $35 to $40. That’s a size that will last you for quite a while. This will last at least one whole season using this daily. I have been using mine daily and the spray bottle is still full. Pretty certain I will get through the rest of 2014 with this product. So for those reasons I consider the price to be affordable also. Sprays last longer than creams. I recommend Skindinavia Makeup Primer spray and would purchase this myself. Also I like the travel size and Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray is perfect for beach days and travel anytime.
Skindinavia Makeup Primer
This product nets a $$$$ 1/2 out of $$$$$. It’s great quality professional makeup product available for consumer use at a decent price. You kind of have to try it to believe the dewy effect it creates on your skin.
As noted in this review, I received product in order to review Skindinavia for this post. My opinion is all my own and 100 % honest.
