Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer review

Review of Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer
Sometimes you read a blog review of a product and you have to buy it immediately, not just add it to your "would like to try sometime" list. I read about the Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer on Adele's blog, Strictly High Street. Bourjois is my favourite drugstore brand, so I went to my nearest Bourjois counter on Monday and there it was! It cost me just £6.60. Thank you, Adele!

Read on for my review of the Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer. 




Packaging: I love the powder pink "little round pot". Normally I prefer a tube for primers, but I would feel let down if Bourjois gave up the pots.
Application: No spatula, so it is fingers all the way unless you bring your own spatula.
Review of Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer
Formula: Very silicone-y without being overly waxy. Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer feels like a soft, smooth sponge when you touch it in the pot. Don't look at the pink-tinted colour. It won't show up on the skin. Bourjois normally doesn't include the ingredients list on the pots. I couldn't find the list on their website either, so I don't know what it contains. But the website says it is a "Non-pore blocking, oil-free formula... Enriched with wild azalea extract to protect cells’ youth." It spreads very well, so you need just a little of the product.
Immediate results: In two words: A dream. It smooths the skin surface and makes it instantly silky. My mum, who never uses primer, has decided to buy this after seeing how silky it was. The results are definitely as noticeable as with Porefessional, but this costs just a fraction. Also, the Bourjois Flower Perfection primer - and the skin after use - is just a bit smoother to touch than the others.
Review of Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer
Long-term results: Mattification is as good as Benefit Porefessional,. My face is oily by 1 p.m. with a primer and by 11 a.m. without primer. My makeup lasts the whole day anyway with any of my favourite primers, so I can't compare longevity.
Review of Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer
Other significant information: You cannot wear this over makeup without major streaks and cakes, whereas you can pat Porefessional over makeup without making (much of) a mess. And, you cannot get your Beauty Blender into the pot. Speaking of the latter, stay tuned....
Would I repurchase? Asap. One for my travel bag, one for my anticipatory wartime hoard and one for my mum.
Review of Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer
Final rating: Bourjois Flower Perfection is my favourite drugstore primer. It is going into my daily routine.
