Talika products are often problem solvers and I love them for that. Talika Skin Retouch is one such product. Combining technology with skincare, Skin Retouch is actually derived from photo retouching techniques, just like using Photoshop on your photos to make your face looks flawless.
From the website:
Over time, the face loses its smoothness. The skin does not reflect light evenly anymore. The skin starts to look dull, tired, and greyish. SkinRetouch Face® acts as an instant corrector of time by playing smartly with light. The skin looks immediately younger. Claims: Blurs fine lines and wrinkles, Unifies and mattifies complexion, and Tightens pores.
Good news, this is one of the best primers I’ve tried, especially for oily skin—which I don’t have but it still worked for me, another plus. It does fill in fine lines and pores, keep foundation fresh and diffuses light. I try a LOT of skin care and have been using a pretty rich moisturizer causing some shine breakthrough in my T-zone. Talika Skin Retouch keeps the oilies at bay. Give it a few minutes to fully “set” before applying makeup.
Packaging is unique and effective. It comes in a tube and has a really cool silicone spatula applicator at the top. It also has a off/on lock system–you rotate the applicator to the on position and after using turn to close, eliminating leaks and spills. The spatula is very flexible and makes spreading the primer extremely easy.
This primer is also touted as a treatment claiming to brighten and reduce fine lines in 28 days. It hasn’t been that long for me so I will let you know next month! Another plus is that it is also recommended for the hands and neck, two problem areas for all over 40 women. The applicator makes applying to these areas easy-peasy.
Bottom Line: a great primer for Over 40 women concerned with fine lines, large pores and also for those with oily skin. The unique applicator is awesome!
