Okay, so I do admit it....I'm not a fan of spray-on beauty products in general! There...I said it...I KNOW- they are supposed to make our lives easier, cut time off of our beauty and skin care routines, and be fun to use! Yet, I often find at least for myself, that these product and ideas usually just fall a little short.
I think the main reason why, is that a lot of these products are great attempts at utilizing a different method, but in turn they concentrate on that factor of the product entirely too much and not much on the ingredients or product itself! If the delivery is fantastic, but the product is sub-par then there isn't much of a reason to use it.
I definitely got lucky with this Makeup Primer Spray from Skidinavia- it worked out a LOT better than the products that I've tried before and mentioned above! It was fairly easy to use by following the instructions provided. They advised to spray in "X" and "T" formations across the face, about 2-4 times total. I was able to achieve what I felt was just the right movements after the 2nd application :)
The formula is Silicone, oil, and Paraben-free which means you really are getting a natural, quality skin care product that will work for most people- even those that may have super sensitive skin as I myself do! It's odorless, clear, and lightweight as well. I really liked those factors as it meant that with its quick-drying time, I could put this on in a flash right before my makeup application and there was virtually no downtime to my routine!
The finished look is absolutely fabulous- I noticed an immediate difference in the look and feel of my makeup right away! I use a couple of different brands of makeup primers already that are fairly good, but I have already ditched those products for this one and I have not used the other primers since! The product just doesn't seem to compare to the other primers I've used before :)
The ONLY drawback I could really find with this product was the price- it's a little steeper in the price point range as it's $35 for the 4 oz. size bottle. However, the product is well worth the price as it's very effective and should last a great deal- it only takes me about 4 total sprays for application and I don't have to reapply! There's also another sized bottle that is 8 oz. and is $49 so for about $14 more than the 4 oz. sized bottle, you get double the amount of product.
who is skindinavia?
They are a private company and are based just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. They also manufacture in the US and were founded in 2004 with their main focus from the start being to provide innovative cosmetics that could "Keep your makeup looking perfect for 16 hours." They proudly call theselves "The Original Makeup Saver" for a good reason and I think it's appropriately fitting for them! If you go to their site too, this is fairly evident right away :) Their products consist only of this focus, but they are good at what they do which is why they've probably stuck to a smaller focus in skincare. I think it was definitely a good choice for them!
