Gosh Velvet Touch Foundation Primer

Hi everyone! The weekend is finally here and I am so happy, but also kind of worried because I have to write an essay, so I'll be busy this weekend.

Some of you have probably heard of the cosmetics company Gosh I think they are mainly based in the U.S. but last month my mom and I found a section in our drugstore with a few Gosh cosmetics. My mom bought one of their new products, the face primer and since I'm little miss oily skin I asked if I could try it out. The primer cost $28, so yes it's a bit expensive but I have a feeling its going to last a very long time because you don't need to use very much. I've only used this a few times since it is my moms but am I ever impressed. When you put it on your skin instantly feels smooth and silky and you can see a difference in the size of your pores. I don't have large pores but even I could tell that this primer made them appear smaller. Putting on foundation after you use this primer is a dream, it goes on so well and blends really easily. I do realize I sound like I'm being paid for this post by Gosh, but trust me I'm not! Now back to the review; this primer not only leaves skin feeling silky but it also leaves it looking completely matte (thumbs up for us oily skinned girls out there!) it's also fragrance free so if you have sensitive skin this won't irritate it. I received many compliments the first time I used this, everyone just said my skin looked clearer and healthier! I can't say that I my foundation lasted longer when I used this, but my skin did appear less oily for a few extra hours during the day. If you can afford this primer then I would definitely suggest it! If you don't want to shell out $28 I'm going to be reviewing a less expensive primer tomorrow! Oh and by the way, the apricot coloured primer (in the picture) is an anti wrinkle primer.
