Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Face Primer SPF20

Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Face Primer SPF 20* £20.49 from

"Maximise your Base by preparing your skin first with Retexturising Face Primer. Colourless, weightless, light reflecting oil-free serum gel. Helps neutralize imperfections while giving foundation a fault-free base. Suitable for all skin types. This product is like having a mini face-lift, smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles giving you a younger complexion. Apply to eyes to stop eyeshadow creasing and to smooth out lips, for longer lasting colour." 

I really like silky face primers and this one feels really lovely. 

It is a little bit less silky than Maybelline The Smoother, but the application is just as pleasant. 
After trying many silicone based primers I can say that The Smoother isn't my favourite anymore. 
Daniel Sandler Retexturising Face Primer is my new number one.
It is a joint first place though- with Benefit's the Porefessional - both great primers.

I apply it with my fingers allover my face, eyelids and lips to minimize imperfections, the appearance of pores and fine lines and to create a perfect base for foundation.  

I don't usually have problems  with foundations staying in place all day. I always use a powder to set liquid foundations and it works well for me. I haven't noticed a difference with this primer and my makeup looked perfect all day. 
It could be different for oily skin, but I am not sure. My skin is dry/normal at the moment.

The tube is a generous size and would probably last for around 3 months (of everyday use).

I really like the finish I can achieve with this product. It does a great job at minimizing  pores and makes them very hard to notice. It works the same way as The Porefessional and gives the same result. It also comes with an added bonus of SPF 20. I prefer using a higher filter on my face, but 20 is fine for me in Autumn/Winter. 
Overall, it is a lovely primer. I would definitely repurchase it and I am curious about other Daniel Sandler products, especially the Watercolour Blushers- they got some rave reviews.

  4. Hmmm you've definitely got me interested!! I'm not big on face primers (I sound like you in that I really don't need one) and didn't get along well with the POREfessional but I may have to check this one out since your skin looks flawless in that last photo!! :)


  5. This sounds really great! And you look so pretty with no eye makeup on! I look like a zombie :)
