Ask any makeup artist — a primer is a necessity for a flawless foundation application. Ask an esthetician, and you will find out that a primer will help “seal in” your skin care treatments for the day. A win-win. So, needless to say, I am a firm (no pun intended) believer in using a primer on a daily basis.
The lightweight, creamy formula goes on clear and is easy to apply with fingers across your whole face. It preps skin to help create a smooth canvas on which foundation can be applied.
Working under foundation to provide continuous hydration and moisturization, CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer is the only primer, formulated with the power of Olay Serum, to help firm the look of skin.
The formula contains ingredients from the amino-peptide complex that is used in the Olay Regenerist line, along with glucosamine, a key ingredient in the Olay Definity line.
Why it’s an Editor’s Pick:
This editor happens to be 57 and is all about keeping things tight. So, a primer that firms skin is perfect. I have found that my skin looks firm and gorgeous when wearing this primer under my foundation or alone. It definitely does it’s job in helping achieve a flawless finish with foundation. I’m already a fan of Olay Regererist, so I’m confident that the firming factor is working as well.
When wearing this primer, my skin stays moist yet with a velvety finish, not at all shiny and my makeup lasts until I remove it. I recommend it for anyone concerned with an anti-aging skin care regimen.
