Many might think "why give a foundation (ie primer) to a foundation"? Those definitely haven't tried them. It's a game changer and once hooked you cannot imagine life without it.
It maximizes the staying power of your foundation and it just goes on smoother. It's hard to describe, but you can feel a positive difference when applying foundation.
On one hand of the scale there are silicone-based primers and water-based ones on the other. Most of the silicone ones I don't like as they feel like everything on them slides around.
Not so the Rouge Bunny Rouge Prelude in the Clouds Aqua Primer, which, as the name suggest is water-based.
Description: "This water-based texture is so light and refreshing on your skin that you will feel like floating through the clouds, but it contains plethora of active ingredients. Sea-Buckthorn Berry Extract serves as a superb-antioxidant and anti-ageing ingredient that promotes cell tissue regeneration. Iris Florentina Root Extract smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles to create a perfect canvas for other products to be applied to the skin. Saccharide Isomerate provides intensive hydration, firming and smoothing; Bisabolol is used for its anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory capabilities. Vitamin E Acetate and Retinol Palmitate improve skin texture. Now you know why we are so excited to bring you this miracle in a bottle."
Whether anti-aging or not, it does smoothes your skin helping the foundation to spread more evenly.
I have the older style of packaging which is gorgeous enough to keep me from throwing out the sturdy paper case and velvety glass, even though it's been empty for moths now. T_T
