GOSH - Review

Bonjour lovlies!

After hearing so much hype about the GOSH Primer, I really wanted to invest in this product as everyone claimed magic wonders, "silky smooth" and "flawless". At £13 a pop it is relatively cheap, however considering that the MAC primer is around the £20 mark, I wanted this product to live up to its expectations seeing as for another £7 I would happily have the MAC one. 

Gosh Velvet Touch Foundation Primer is a perfect base for all makeup. It fills in fine lines and deep pores in the skin, creating a uniform, matt and silky soft surface, enabling the easy and smooth application of foundation.
The primer can be used after daily moisturiser or on clean skin. The formula is perfume and preservative free. - Superdrug Website

The product is light and looks watery however it has a very nice consistency and matte feel. In my eyes this product did leave a wonderful soft surface, ready for the appliance of foundation, although as for filling in the facial lines, it did not. Being only 17 I haven't that many lines or deep pores, thank god!, but I do have a few wrinkles around my eyes which didn't become any less noticeable when applied. You only need a small pea sized amount in order to cover the face, and I advise you not to use much more as I found it seem to clog my pores in between my eyebrows and leave spots. 

Overall I wouldn't repurchase this product as I know that for a small amount of money more I could have the MAC Primer which I have already test tried and loved. I will give the GOSH Primer a 7/10.

Have you tried this product? 
What's your thoughts? 
Any Primer suggestions?


  1. I still don't know how i feel about primers! i usually use the 17 photo flawless one or loreal smoother!
    This one looks waay to watery!


  2. I've also tried the MUA primer (review to come) but didn't think much of that either. The consistency is very gel like and has a matte touch to it. MAC primer is amazing though!
