A little time ago, I wrote about “how to get rid of shiny skin”. I explained to you, that when you put your make-up on, it’s best to begin with a base to keep your skin matt all day long. Now.. my skin doesn’t stay matt all long, no matter what I try. So after 4/5 hours, I use.. a blotting paper or some mineral powder 🙂
Most primers contain silicones, which basically clog your pores (to make it equal) and that’s not really great for your skin. On Salonè Della Moda (Rotterdam Fashion Week), I met a lovely woman called Cheryl. She told me some things about their line called “Aïcha”.
They have hair-serums and creams with Argan oil, based on natural products and 100% Argan Oil only. She told me, the makeup-artists used the Aïcha products for their models.
When she also told me the models wore an all-natural primer, I was curious… “The primer doesn’t clog your pores, is natural, contains argan-oil, is anti-aging and you can also use it as a day and night-cream”.
Cheryl sent me the Aïcha Pure Beauty Primer with Argan Cream to review myself… I’ve used it for a few weeks now, and today I’ll tell you what I think about this beautiful-looking-product.
Will I be excited about this primer? You’ll read it right now…
The Primer comes within a beautiful blue and gold package. When you remove the shell and squeeze once: you already have enough for your whole face. It’s a really thick and rich cream and feels super soft, once you’ve applied it. My skin feels moistened after applying and looks healthy and equal.
The Aïcha Pure Beauty Primer with Argan Cream, contains Organic Argan Oil with a high content of unsaturated fatty acids. This helps to restore and stabilise your skin. It also contains:
Sea Buckthorn Oil (Omega 3, 6, Vitamin B, C, E, which helps to smooth, soften and rejuvenate your skin), Cucumber Oil and Mango butter (to help relive puffiness, moisturise, protect and soften the skin), Organic Olive Leaf extract and Chamomile to keep your skin young and Lavender, Comfrey and Panax Ginsing Extract to tone, hydrate and heal new skin cell growth.
Aïcha Primer: Anti-Ageing Cream with Arganolie.
Does my skin stay matt all day?
Hmm.. not really. But my skin dóés look different. I can’t really tell you what it is that I see,
but my skin somehow looks better, than with other primers I apply. After a few hours I, unfortunately, have to apply some powder again (or use a blotting paper) to keep my skin matt.
But I’m used to it, so I don’t really blame the primer. I’ll keep using this cream for sure,
because it makes my skin look pretty and it feels great 🙂
