Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer REVIEW!

Until buying this product i had never used a face primer before. It was always the product i thought i could do without. (Right now you're probably thinking that i'm going to say something like, this product has officially changed my life and never will i go without primer again). Well actually, to be honest, i still think primer is not a necessity. However i do like to use this product for special occasions.



So here are the product's promises:
"Foundation glides on more smoothly, more evenly and wears longer. Or wear alone for an all-day fresh and even complexion."

-Smoothes to minimize pores
-Resurfaces for an even complexion
-Brightens skin all day
-Mattifies and eliminates shine
-Protects skin from environmental aggressors

It definitely smoothes. My face feels very soft and provides a nice canvas for my foundation to go on to. I definitely notice the difference when i have it on, as my face does feel really smooth! This too creates a more even complexion, tick to number one and two!

I haven't really noticed when looking in the mirror that my face is brighter, however when i have the primer on i do find that in photos my face looks brighter (in a good way). So i think that's a tick to number three!

I do tend to suffer with oily areas on my face, especially my nose. I'm not so sure about the product making your face matte, it may have improved it slightly. And of course number 5 protection from the environment - well how the heck do i review that?!



This primer is 002, there is 001 which is tinted but this one isn't which i prefer. It is a creamy consistancy and sinks in to the skin well. For the price (£7) i think this is a good product.

Overall i am impressed with this primer, it does the job and is good for the price. As i only use primer occasionally i feel like this suits me as it lasts ages and does improve the appearance of my skin which is perfect for those special occasions when you are being photographed.

The lowdown -
❤ Would i repurchase? I would!
❤ Rating out of 10? 9
❤ Would i recommend it to a friend? Yes!

What do you think?

Thanks for reading Xx

  2. I love primers but I've been let down so many times now that I'm getting a bit 'meh' about them. I haven't tried any by Rimmel though so I might have to give this a try when Boots 3 for 2 comes back!

  4. Sounds like a good primer! I don't use primer much either - just been working through some of those little porefessional samples that seem to be popping up in my stash constantly!! xx

  11. I'm just like you I haven't found that life changing primer. I don't get the extreme benefits others seem to find but I'd definitely try this one out after reading your review

    1. I know i could easily live without primer, but it is nice on a special occasion when you want extra reassurance that your makeup will have a longer staying power. I would recommend this one though as i have noticed small differences when using it, and it is affordable xx
