Investing in good quality base products has become quite the obsession of mine as of late. I've been reading the reviews on the Hydra-powder for quite a while and everyone kept saying how sheer it was so I really wanted to try it. Not seeing any reviews on brown skin made me even more curious as to how it would preform and I must tell you that it did not disappoint! Anything that is hyaluronic based automatically has anti-aging properties that prevents the early signs of line formation and wrinkles and now we're seeing it in other products besides face creams and oils.
What the website says.... "A true cosmetic innovation, this colorless, micro-fine Hyaluronic acid power is the new beauty step that can be used day and night, after foundation or skincare. Its hydra-comforting formula combines ultra-filling and plumping micronized Hyaluronic acid spheres and super-absorbent silica microbeads to slip into the slightest creases to resurface wrinkles, fine lines and enlarged pores with a sheer touch. Its "blurring" makeup-setting power, "soft touch" texture and lumi-smoothing finish ensure a clear and matte skin.
By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Face Primer in no exception to giving a flawless face. It applies so smooth, sheer and oil free that I decided to mix it with my Cover FX Custom Cover Drops and turn it into a foundation! I had already applied my moisturizer before starting the video demo but honestly, I could have skipped that step and went straight for the primer, it's just that soothing on the skin.
