I’ve been all about primers lately, trying out Clinique’s SuperPrimers and writing There’s a Primer for that over on Babble.
Recently, Freeze 24-7 sent me a tube of their Freeze and Go, and I have to say that it’s the primer I’m reaching for over and over now!
This primer does have a lot of silicone in it (which is great for slip and smoothness, helping make your pores disappear), but it looks like a white lotion and feels very lightweight, it has a light citrus scent. I need only a very small amount, about the size of a small pea, for my entire face. It is an off white color, but once it is applied it becomes invisible. I don’t see much difference in my skin with just the primer alone, but the primer definitely makes a difference once I’ve applied some foundation over it!
The Freeze and Go does make my foundation smoother and less noticeable. More than any other primer, it seems to brighten my complexion, making me look more awake. That’s really important for the days that I’m post call!
