I’m sure most readers know by now that I rarely pass up the chance to test a new primer. I’m also certain you remember how my complexion tends to become congested–maybe the oil on my face is akin to those slick spots on the 101–so I try to look for formulas which are non-comedogenic.
In a perfect world, I could be 100% honest and report how how everything non-comedogenic I’d ever sampled had lived up to its promise of not exacerbating sensitive, acne-prone skin; however, in reality, a few leftover spots on my chin certainly undermine my point-of-view there! I have to admit, thanks to my Asian ancestry I haven’t had to be too concerned about the development of fine lines or any other visible signs of aging just yet. Still, when it comes to taking care of your skin, it never hurts to be proactive–and when I heard about this new Korres Quercetin & Oak primer, I was more than happy to give it a try.
I was a little concerned when I first read the description, because products targeted toward mitigating the effects of aging (i.e. fighting wrinkles or restoring lost moisture) tend to cause my already-efficient sebaceous glands to become top producers. However, I need not have worried; Korres, as a company, avoids using mineral oil and silicone–two of the more common pore-clogging ingredients. My skin reacted favorably and did not break out: Korres’ eco-friendly and cruelty-free choices result in products from which everyone else can also benefit. As an additional bonus, this primer is even suitable for vegans!
So, how does it work? What makes this ideal as both a powerful anti-aging treatment and face/make-up primer? Infused with antioxidant Quercetin and Oak extracts, these natural weapons help
Hyaluronic acid forms a protective shield on the skin, providing immediate moisture and increasing skin elasticity, while barley extract instantly fills wrinkles and refines pores. Since skin tone and texture are improved with regular use, a healthy glow can be achieved–even without make-up. What part of that doesn’t sound terrific?!
