Garden Botanika Primers Collection Review

Garden Botanika Holiday Prime Time Collection

When Garden Botanika asked if I wanted to review their new Holiday Prime Time Collection, I welcomed the opportunity to test out their four- piece set of primers to keep your makeup intact.  I was curious about what sort of improvement I would notice.

The kit includes their best selling “She’s Prepped” Mineral Foundation Primer, a Lash Primer, Shadow Primer, and a Lip Scrub.  These four arrive in a perky green cosmetic case with a protective plastic lining in case of spills.

I was shocked at how using “She’s Prepped” Mineral Foundation Primer seemed to work so much better than any moisturizer under my makeup.  This product seemed to mask my pores more to create a smoother surface because when I applied foundation my complexion was void of even the tiniest of flaws.

The Shadow Primer was so wonderful for keeping mineral eye shadow beautiful without creasing for longer periods of time.

The Lip Scrub was next for me to test.  After I put some on, I applied some lipstick that usually faded into my skin after about an hour.  I only kept this tube because it was such a pretty color that I liked to wear with one particular outfit.   Nonetheless, it was a pain to constantly need to repair my lips when I wore it.  However, I am happy to report that once I tried their Lip Scrub, I didn’t have that same problem.  My lip color was still on my lips all morning until lunch without any signs of bleeding.

I thought the Lash Primer worked nicely thickening and lengthening my lashes considerably.   What else was great was how it kept my non-waterproof mascara in place.  I wore it all day and didn’t have any flaking or smudging, even when I forgot I was wearing mascara, and rubbed my eyes.

I really think these products are worth the extra little bit of time it takes to add them to your beauty routine.  Honestly, you will see an amazing difference in your skin’s surface and smoothness that makeup will adhere better.  This set of Garden Botanika primers sent for this review would make an amazing holiday gift for any woman!
