YBF Primer Review

YBF - Perfect Prep Face Primer*

A while back I was sent out this Primer from YBF, I had only recently gotten into primer and I usually lived by my Witch Primer. Once that had run out I decided to experiment with different primers and see what's best for my skin, ironically I was contacted in the same week asking if I would like to review this primer so I jumped at the offer! Straight away I was impressed with the packaging as I expected it to feel more cheap? I must admit I was there for about 10 minutes twisting the lid when all you had to do was pull haha! The sponge applicator is something I havn't seen and is very soft and lovely against your skin however I really don't like this method of putting primer on as I find the sponger gets dirty and it can be really unhygienic applying it this way, maybe this is why my skin hasn't been very good since.

The actual texture of the primer is very velvet like and soft and I love the feel of it on my skin however I'm the type of person who likes anything to completely sink into my skin before applying my foundation and I found that I had to wait a while and do other things to let it sink in. I also found with the applicator that I would accidentally use too much as I could never see the product until I rubbed it into my skin and found I had pushed too much out. A positive thing about this primer is that it does work very well as a primer and I noticed the difference when one day I forgot to put it on, this would last me from 9am right til 5pm when I got home from University. Overall, yes it is a good primer but personally I prefer my Witch Primer.
