Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Face Primer

The Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Face Primer is a new product into my stash and is one I have seen on my social media feed and is one that I have been intrigued by for some time. Having recently reviewed the Ole Henriksen Lemonade Smoothing Scrub, I wanted to see just how this would fair as a primer as well as skincare, but anything is possible as we know.

The *Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Face Primer is described as being a vitamin C-powered illuminating makeup primer that delivers instant radiance while improving and extending makeup wear. It was inspired by the much loved 'Banana Powder', a makeup artist must-have product.  It can be worn on its own, used as a primer underneath your makeup, mixed in with your foundation or you can also use it on top of your makeup as a highlighter.

It comes packaged inside a bright orange tube which features a white pump and I really like the consistency of this, with its almost gel like formula, it has an incredible banana scent, which whilst subtle, is noticeable.

When using this Banana Bright Face Primer, you only need a small amount because it really does give that glow and if you use too much, you end up looking like a shiny disco ball v Edward Cullen in Twilight as he shows himself in the sunlight to Bella (if you know, you know)! On the skin, which I apply with a beauty blender, it is really hydrating and doesn't have that dreaded silicone feel to it, definitely more skincare than makeup feeling.  Depending on my mood, I either wear this on its own and have worn it under my tinted moisturiser when my skin has felt particularly dry, so I can avoid anything sticking to my dry areas of skin. 

Having read so many people rave about this primer, I can see why it is so loved and if you want to try a new primer which is everything and a little bit more, this one ticks all of those boxes because it:
  • Instantly brightens
  • Improves and extends makeup wear
  • Blurs imperfections
  • Hydrates

Plus it is also Vegan. Ole Henriksen products are back in the UK and the entire collection is now available from Boots! This Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Face Primer is priced at just £28 for 30ml  or £15 for 15ml right here*.
