Clarins SOS Primers

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times but I like repetition so d’ya know what, I’ll say it again.
It is a crime not to prime!

Your entire face will thank you for taking some time to choose an appropriate primer for your skin. 

There is literally 0 point investing in a mega awesome foundation if the canvas you are applying it to has not been prepped correctly.

Not sure what kind of primer you need or where to start? Lucky for you then that Clarins have got it covered with their range of SOS Primers.

Available in 6 different varieties, each primer has been created to target and correct a specific skin concern. Whether you’re suffering with a dull, uneven complexion, redness or dark spots, sallowness or just plain tiredness, there’s a primer to help your skin appear more radiant and beautiful.

Oh, but before I launch into descriptions of which each primer does you should know that each variant contains organic sea lily extract to help keep your skin hydrated and features an anti-pollution complex of nipplewort extract, white tea and furcellaria to help protect against harmful environmental aggressors. 

Good eh?

I was lucky enough to test out Universal Light (00), Green (04) and Lavender (05) which I’ll go into in just a moment but there are three other variations also available.

First up is Rose (01), a colour corrector that works like an energy ‘cocktail’ to instantly boost tired skin thanks in part to its pink pigments which help to restore a fresh-looking complexion. 

Banish imperfections with Peach (02). Thanks to its beige coloured pigments this colour corrector helps to conceal dark circles, visible veins scars leaving your skin looking fresh and flawless instantly.

If you suffer with dark spots and pigmentation issues then Coral (03) is the primer for you. Its light orange pigments help to counterbalance the blue shade of dark spots to instantly even out skin irregularities. 

Now onto the ones I tested!

If you suffer with redness then Green (04) is going to be your go-to primer.

Its colour correcting green pigments help to minimise the look of redness by counteracting the redness of your skin with its mint green hue.

If sallow skin is more your concern then Lavender (05) will sort you out in no time. 

As you may expect, lavender pigments in this primer help to even out yellow skin tones, revealing a brighter, more even complexion.

Not entirely sure which primer you need, then Universal Light (00) has got you covered.

This pearly-white, radiance boosting bad boy will help to instantly brighten your skin thanks to its spectacular light reflecting qualities.

Lightweight, non-greasy and instantly absorbed into your skin, these primers do a brilliant job at preparing your skin for makeup application.

Skin tone is evened out. Imperfections are blurred. Skin looks radiant, feels soft and smooth and is prepped and ready for the day ahead.

Clarins range of SOS Primer’s are available now and cost £26.50 each.
