Product Review: Dr. LeWinn’s Skin Perfect Anti-ageing Primer

As I really loved the Dr. LeWinn’s Skin Perfect Foundation (see my review here), I just had to try the Dr. LeWinn’s Skin Perfect Anti-ageing Primer as well. Here are my thoughts:

What they say:

"An anti-ageing primer that instantly gives silky and smooth skin, and allows make-up to glide over skin and prepare the complexionfor a long lasting base. Its lightweight formula contains Evermat™ Technology to visibly reduce the appearance of pores and absorb excess oils, without over-drying. Skin is left clear, glowing and hydrated".

Price: $29.95 for 30ml

What I say:
Starting to see beginning lines, wrinkles and increasing pigmentation, as well as having combination skin, means that I am therefore always on the lookout for the perfect foundation and primer to ensure a more even look and that my makeup stays put all day.  The Dr. LeWinn’s Skin Perfect Primer that seems to be the ultimate two-in-one product; a product that works on your wrinkles while covering covering imperfections.  

And as soon as I applied the primer, I was instantly impressed. It makes my skin look more even, and visibly smooths to wrinkles and fine lines. It leaving my skin looking radiantly glowing, smooth and hydrated, with a soft powdery and matte finish, which is fantastic when you have skin a little on the greasy side – all in all the perfect canvas for foundation. It also leaves the skin with a nice sheen, which you may be able to see from the picture below.


Using this primer means that I do not need to reapply touch-up my foundation during the day, it simply lasts all day, no touch-up required. And my foundation doesn’t fall into the creases during the day, which is another positive. I also like that I use less foundation to get an even look, but best of all, when I am wearing it, it is as if I’ve shaved several years off the look of my face.

The Skin Perfect Primer has a lovely slightly floral scent, though it is very subtle, and disappears almost immediately after application. And I really like that the primer has a texture like a lightweight lotion as opposed to a traditional silicone-heavy primer.

While on one hand the glass bottle is no doubt used to make the product appear more luxe, it is the negative thing I have to say about this primer, as I don’t find the glass bottle very practical. I can also imagine that it will be difficult to completely empty the bottle. On the positive, it gets a bonus point for the inbuilt pump, which makes both easy to use and more hygienic. But I would prefer if it came in a plastic tube designed to stand on the lid, so that you can completely empty the tube.

All in all, it is a fantastic primer that for me ticks all the boxes, and I really like the inclusion of hyaluronic acid and other nourishing ingredients, as in the of the day when I remove my makeup, my skin feels so soft and hydrated, almost as if I havejust removed a moisturising mask. 
If you too are concerned about ageing skin, and you are looking for primer that doubles as an anti-ageing product that truly makes you look years younger, then I’d definitely recommend this to you.
Have you tried this new anti-ageing range from Dr LeWinn's? What's your favourite primer?

  1. I've bought this but haven't used it yet. I've nearly finished my current primer (Almay) and can't wait to use this!
