A cleansing oil keeping it tender and smooth as make-up residues and skin impurities are removed, and at the same time, avocado oil imparts a noticeable sense of softness to the skin to keep it supple and smooth.
Traces of sebum, makeup residue, and pollutants that cause skin trouble typically remain on the skin. Pollutants can cause inflammation and other skin problems, hastening skin aging. PRIMERA is a line of cleansing products that smoothly and thoroughly remove impurities from the skin leaving your skin complexion bright and your skin completely clean and clear.
There are three selling points to this product. The first being purification, second-mild moisture cleansing and the last- environment-friendliness.
- Purification: Sulforaphane, from broccoli sprout extracts, helps discharge the skin’s impurities and protects the skin from pollutants.
- Mild, moisture cleaning: Energy from the sprouts provides continuous moisture throughout the cleansing process, which can otherwise leave the skin feeling dry, thus smoothing and hydrating the skin.
- Environment-friendliness: Formulated with safe, eco-friendly grown raw ingredients and delivered in a recyclable package, the cleanser is environment-friendly and offers happy, healthy beauty that breathes together with nature.
If you’re new to cleansing oils, a single pump is all you really need to remove your makeup. I usually use an eye & lip makeup remover first and follow with either a cleansing oil/cream to dissolve whatever I’m wearing on my face. Since my mascara and eyeliner are both waterproof it does take a bit of work to remove so I usually massage the cleansing oil over my lids to get any stubborn residue left behind. It could just be me but my eyes do sting when they come into contact with this product. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all but my eyes really don’t like it. The cleansing oil does have a lemon/lime scent, but it’s neither overpowering or subtle. The oil rinses off easily and doesn’t leave behind any oiliness.
Honestly, I had really high hopes for all the products I ordered from Primera. I often came upon reviews from users calling it the higher end version of Innisfree which of course sparked my immediate interest. I’ve used three out of the four products I’ve ordered and so far, I can’t say I’m blown away. I’m actually a bit let down by Primera and I will go into further detail about the serum and cleansing cream once I review them but in all fairness this is a decent cleansing oil. However, for half the price, you can get something just as good, performance wise.
It does contain a number of extracts and oil that might be good for those with sensitive skin but there aren’t any significant differences between this and any of the cleansing products I’ve used. This product claims to leaves the skin smooth and hydrated- which may be true. It’s difficult to tell though. Since I usually apply lotion, serum and cream immediately after washing my face, it’s difficult to tell which products are responsible for moisturizing and hydrating my skin. In many ways, Primera does remind me of Innisfree just a more expensive version of it. It claims to be plant-extract based and eco-friendly- which it is but for those who may find their prices a bit steep, I recommend checking out Innisfree instead. I was extremely excited to try out their products and while discovering them was fun- I don’t feel impressed.
- effectively removes makeup
And the bad:
- retails at 25,000 KRW
- stings when comes into contact with eyes
- might be difficult to find
