Beauty Find - Hourglass Nº 28 Primer Serum

Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum Product Review
Hourglass Nº 28 Primer Serum

 Most of you wouldn't associate oil with a primer, but the genius new product Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum manages to combine a facial oil with a serum that is an amazing primer and skincare product in one. 

The name is derived from the 28 essential and plant oils, along with 4 vitamins contained in the formula.

I have combination skin (more oily in the t zone), and just one pump of the serum completely balanced out the more oily and dry parts of my face.  The texture is quite unique - it feels like a thick oil when it's first pumped into your hand, but once it's applied it feels like absolute heaven.  

The serum sank into my skin immediately and made it feel like silk. My skin tone was soft, supple and it gave me a virtually pore-less look with a beautiful glow.

It was the perfect layer before I added a BB Balm,  foundation or tinted moisturizer and helped my makeup look fresh and stay in place all day into the night.  It's very concentrated so only one pump is needed, making this a good beauty investment.  I also loved using it at night after cleansing and using my other skincare treatments - that's how amazing it felt.

I also have to mention the fragrance of this product .  It is simply beautiful - a mix of sweet, delicate florals, gentle citrus and grassy notes that is very noticeable upon application, but faded away quickly, never leaving me overwhelmed.

This is going to be another new product I've discovered in 2012 that will become a staple in my skincare and makeup routine! -RLB
