Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer
I have to admit the name of this product caught my eye first before anything else. I wasn’t looking for a new primer but anything that recover your skin from a hangover, I need to try. I was intrigued to see that this product not only had cococut water, which is a favorite of mine for skin and body, but it also has electrolytes and probiotics. Too Faced was extremely clever to take an ingredient that is usually seen in ingestable products and add it to a topical product for the largest organ we have, the skin.
I was also very happy to see that this primer is silicon-free. I have very dry skin in the winter time and primers that are silicon based do absolutely nothing for me. And they normally do more bad than good.

Product | “Too Faced harnessed the science of hydration to create a creamy, penetrating primer that acts like an energy drink for the skin by replenishing moisture levels. It can be worn alone for a dewy, healthy looking finish, or under bronzers, foundations, and powders to create the perfect canvas.” – Sephora.com
Pigmentation | This product doesn’t have any pigmentation since it’s a primer. It comes out of the pump white but it smooths on translucent.
Application | This primer is a very silky cream. Not too wet and not to firm. I found that it only too about 4 pumps of product to cover my entire face.
Texture | The texture of the primer is very creamy and smooth. But I want to talk about what your skin feels like after you put it on. I applied this after doing a double cleanse with my normal face wash and my skin felt like it literal woke up. My skin felt very smooth and supple.
Longevity | This was the blue ribbon winner for me. I applied this to my face at 6am and at 11:33pm my skin feels like I just applied it. I even had my roommate feel my face to make sure I wasn’t having a placbo effect. My skin felt very soft, smooth and very hydrated.
