I assume that, by now, you all might have been well aware of my love for the brand The Ordinary. I was lucky enough to grab few products before the brand went crazy and hiked their minimum order price from 50$ to 250$. I’ll be talking about all of those products in near future, starting today with the first product: The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone primer.
Price: The best part about this amazing brand is its affordability. This primer is priced at 7.90$ which is approx. 508Rs. We get 30ml of product.
Packaging: It comes in a very plain grey coloured opaque plastic tube with a white plastic cap which shuts tightly. This is quite travel friendly and spill proof.
Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Bis-Isobutyl PPG-20 Crosspolymer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Isohexadecane, Hexamethyldisiloxane, Isoceteth-20, Polysilicone-11, Tocopherol, Polysorbate 60, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin.
This primer is oil free, alcohol free, nuts free, cruelty free and completely vegan.
Texture: The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer has a texture of a thick cream which is a little siliconey. It doesnot give a slimy/slippery feeling which many primers tend to give. I use less than half a pea size amount on my face daily. I have oily-acne prone skin and this has not irritated it at all. It has mild hydrating properties because of which it doesn’t cling on to dry patches on the skin. This is going to suit all skin types! It easily gets absorbed and gives an initial mild cooling sensation when applied. I top it with a compact powder and my makeup is done!
The only downside is its fragrance. It smells of plastic and rubber. Not at all pleasant! But the smell doesn’t linger for long.
Efficacy: This primer doesn’t blur out the pores as it claims. But it smooths out the skin and prevents texture from being seen. Also, this doesn’t aggravate oil production and hence helps in keeping makeup stay in place for long.
Without this, my foundation starts showcasing texture on my skin after a while, but when this primer is applied, the foundation stays put and my skin appears even and smooth for a long time.
Needless to say, I am in love with this primer. It is so travel friendly that I can easily throw it anywhere in my bag and neednot worry about any leakage. I’ve been using this for more than a month now and it has not irritated me at all. It holds the makeup in place without feeling heavy or tacky. This little tube is going to last me long as a very little amount is needed for the application.
The only con is its availability at present. You’ll have to get it online by paying some shipping charges or convince your friends (who are staying abroad) to get this for you.🤷🏻♀️
As per my discussion with the brand, they are expanding their market and are looking forward to make their products available in the Asian market as well. so let’s hope for the best!🤞🏻
I definitely recommend this to everyone. My favourite primer used to be the Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer but I’ve not even touched it since I started using The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer. I love how this brand gives a luxurious feeling at such an affordable price! I am in love with The Ordinary!❤️
Until next time, stay beautiful & keep smiling!
