Ark Skincare Skin Protector SPF30 Primer

Ark Skincare is an award-winning British skincare brand, which treats skin by the age and concern using bioactive natural ingredients. combining antioxidants, lipids and vitamins.  The Skin Protector SPF30 Primer is a multi-award winning advanced formulation which works as a moisturiser, sunscreen and primer all at once.

We all know that one of the most important things we can do for our skin is to protect it from UVA and UVB rays, it is something that should come as natural to you as washing your hair and cleaning your teeth.  

This skin protecting primer SPF30 from Ark Skincare has been part of my everyday routine for a good few months now and I absolutely love it. The formula makes it easy to love, it isn't as heavy as a cream but it does have a slightly thicker texture than your average serum and when applied to the skin, it feels weightless but is quite refreshing.

For me, how a product feels on my skin when I apply it is important. I really don't like overly thick cream or serum, unless my skin is so dry and flaky that I feel it needs extra love and care.  As this is a primer which ticks more than one box, it doesn't have that silicone-like feel to it when it is on the skin, the tacky feeling after the application is totally absent.  I like that I can use this as a moisturiser, a primer and as a bit of protection for my skin and it can be worn alone or under your makeup. 

Having mentioned that Ark Skincare uses some pretty amazing ingredients, this Primer is no different, included you will find:

  • Vitamin E – antioxidant and provides photoprotection
  • Shea Butter – nourishes skin and protects from free radicals
  • Sunflower – packed with vitamins and minerals
  • Hyaluronic Acid – helps skin retain moisture keeping your complexion plump, smooth and radiant

I have been wearing this primer alongside a tinted moisturiser and a BB cream, both of which glide straight onto my skin without slipping partway through the day. I have combination oily skin, so a primer is a must for me if I want to do the absolute best I can at avoiding that afternoon slip and shine.

It is priced at £36 and can be found via Lookfantastic and Ark Skincare.

  1. Ah it was all going so well until I read about shea butter in the ingredients - my face hates it even though I can use it on my body! xx


  2. I'm looking for a new primer and this might be the one as I have similar combination skin.

  3. I’ve been using it for a while and I love it x
