Dermalogica AGE Smart Skinperfect Primer SFP 30 - review and swatch

Dermalogica has recently done a reshuffle with their sun-care products ahead of the Aussie summer, as well as adding some new goodies to their skincare lines. 



One new product, the Skinperfect Primer, has been aligned with the AGE smart line (I feel like the AGE bit is yelling at me), and although that name suggests it's only for the wrinkly, flapping-skin retirees amongst us, I think it's appropriate for all ages. Most importantly, it can help prevent you getting to that wrinkly stage so quickly as it contains a broad spectrum SPF 30. This is one ingredient I want to see in more primers, because you can never slop too much sunscreen on your face, right?

This may be too much sunscreen

I like the squeezy tube used here compared to other Dermalogica products I've previously used as it's soft enough to squidge out every last bit of product, and the small opening prevents me getting too enthusiastic and using way too much product.







This is the most pigmented primer I've used, and the dense colour could be either a bonus for those who want extra coverage and colour correction, or a dealbreaker for those whose skin tone differs to the light beige shade.



I narrowly fit into the bonus group, with the primer just working on my skin. A little darker and it would have headed into Orange town, which is never nice to visit. Kick up the formula's coverage, and this primer would be edging into BB cream territory, with the high SPF, skin benefits and smoothing qualities working hard for your skin. Compared to other Western BB cream releases, Skinperfect sure does a better job, even without meaning to.

Anyway, looking back at Dermalogica's claims that Skinperfect Primer will aid "a lasting make-up finish", I agree that it does help my foundation to cling to my face for longer and makes application easier, being thick enough to spackle pores and laugh lines into submission.

While it is a good primer, I've been putting it on weekend duty, working solo as a face base for those days I want a wee bit of coverage but CBFd going a full-face. Some call that lazy, I just say I'm low maintenance. Somewhere in Sydney, my boyfriend just snorted after sensing that last sentence...

Dermalogica AGE Smart Skinperfect Primer SFP 30 has a RRP of A$79.
