MeMeMe isn’t a brand I’m overly familiar with, having only tried a few bits in the past (lovely eyeshadows!), but when I saw the press release for Seventh Heaven Enriched Facebase I knew I had to try it out. I don’t know why it appealed so much maybe it’s the name, or maybe it’s the packaging, or maybe it was the description, I don’t know, but I knew I wanted to try it.
A moisturising primer containing ingredients to calm, repair, rejuvenate, nourish, brighten and hydrate, Seventh Heaven contains Shea Butter, Vitamin A and antioxidants, along with Rosebay and Geranium to heal and calm.
It’s small but powerful pot. And it smells gorgeous, lemon and mandarin and the texture is that of a gorgeous moisturiser.
So the idea, as with most primers, is that you add a small amount to your face, leave to soak in for a minute or two then carry on with your foundation as usual.
What I was interested in was two things in particular, how would this cope with the dry patches on either side of my nose which foundations usually show up, and how would a primer that is moisturising cope with a whole day?
Well it’s amazing! It’s comfortable on my skin, it quickly absorbed, it left my skin soft and gorgeous, it moisturised (over my usual moisturiser), didn’t clog in my dry patches and stopped my foundation clogging in my dry patches and my foundation stayed put all day with no shine. What more can you ask for? It’s perfect and it’s a fraction of the cost of my last primer, leaving me feeling like a bit of a fool to be honest! I don’t need my super duper expensive one any more (although it is still fabulous, its just expensive!). If and when I ever finish my posh one, this will be the Primer I use for the rest of my life!
MeMeMe Seventh Heaven Enriched Facebase £15.00 available from www.mememecosmetics.co.uk and Superdrug stores nationwide. Seriously if you need a primer that moisturises then try this.
