The texture of each primer is lovely. They glide on to the skin and make it super hydrated and comfortable.  You can use one shade all over the face, or mix and match the formulas for targeted colour correction.

I’ve been playing with these Clarins SOS Primers and I must say, they are excellent. I tried out all the shades and each one is beautifully formulated. 00 Universal Light is great for a quick shot of all over brightness underneath foundation and it is also brilliant for mixing into your complexion products.

I was also particularly impressed with the green one because it is so effective on the redness, and couple of little tiny veins around my nose. It neutralises high colour quickly and I actually found it covered the tiny red veins and also diminished the appearance of pores in that area too. The formula is very skin perfecting. You’ll need a lot less foundation if you spend a bit of time correcting with one or two of these first.

Peach is also perfect for brightening, evening out and smoothing the eye area. White and Pink can be used as gorgeous dewy highlighters. It’s a very good product range and the packaging is super convenient too.

The Clarins SOS Primer range is available exclusively HERE now for £26.50 each.
