Part of the AGE Smart range, the Skinperfect Primer is designed to brighten and smooth the skin, allowing foundation to apply evenly and stay in place for longer. The primer gives the skin that slightly odd velvety feeling due to the silicones in the formula that provide a smooth base for make up.
The Dermalogica Skinperfect primer is neutrally tinted and contains pearl powders and 'natural earth minerals' that work to brighten and even out the complexion. I found that the primer gives a sort of 'blurring' effect when used alone and I'll often wear it without make up over the top as it sort of peps up the skin. It's also worth mentioning that the Skinperfect primer is SPF30, which is always a bonus.

The primer also has that fresh, herbal sort of fragrance that most Dermalogica products have and reminded me of my Dermalogica skin regime from my early twenties. It's actually made me want to revisit the brand and try out the anti-ageing ranges!
At £37.50 a tube, this primer is on the pricier side but the 22ml goes a very, very long way so I don't think the price is a deal breaker if you're after a good primer by a pretty fabulous brand. I have read that this primer is not particularly suitable for darker skin as it tends to leave things looking a bit chalky, so hopefully the powers that be at Dermalogica take note of this and release some darker colours in the future.
Do you use Dermalogica skincare and have you got a favourite product?
p.s. I've heard that this is quite a good product for blokes too!
