In my most recent haul I showed you guys I bought two primers by The Ordinary. One of them is this High-Adherence Silicone Primer. After trying it out thoroughly I felt like it was about time to write a review about it and share my experiences and opinions on this product with you guys. So, if you’re interested in finding out more about this product, make sure you continue reading!
The The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer comes in a very simple white box with grey and black details. Inside that box you’ll find the actual tube filled with the product. Initially I expected the tube to be a little bigger (I really don’t know why), but this size is perfect. It isn’t super tiny but it’s not excessively big so it won’t fit in your bag when you’re on the go. The tube contains 30 ml and that’s quite a lot for a primer.
When it comes to looks I like the tube. It’s very simple, classic and basic but it’s pretty. It’s everything you need in a tube and nothing more than that. It does represent the brand really well in my opinion and that makes it even better. So overall I think The Ordinary did a great job at packaging this primer!
On the bag of the box and on the bag of the tube The Ordinary gives us a teeny tiny bit of information about this product. For some reason it’s quite hard to find a lot of information about their products and they don’t usually make promises or claims so it’s very, very minimal. On the back of the product it only tells us how to apply it and when.
So, it’s a product you use after doing your whole morning skincare routine. It’s the last step before putting on actual makeup like foundation or whatever. However, you can also use this without using foundation or other makeup at all. I personally wouldn’t know why you’d use it if you aren’t going to wear makeup, but at least you now know that you can.
Because this is a silicone based primer I was slightly hesitant to buy and use it. I’m not a big fan of silicones in general and especially not in primers. It usually just doesn’t go well with my other products and the feeling of silicones in general just make me feel a little cringy.
However, this primer is quite okay. You can definitely feel the silicony texture, but it doesn’t bother me as much. The primer itself is white and looks like a very thick cream, but it’s very easy to blend into the skin. After blending it in my skin feels incredibly smooth and soft like you’d expect from a silicone primer and it feels like it’s ready for makeup.
When it comes to makeup my makeup go on smoother I think this primer is amazing. It creates a clean and smooth canvas for my foundation and that definitely makes a difference. Even though I’ve always been pro-primer, I was never sure whether or not it actually made that big of a difference. This time I can actually notice it. My foundations go on way less streaky, they don’t look patchy or cakey at all and once everything is blended in the finish is even more flawless than it would’ve been without the use of this primer.
Staying power wise this primer is great as well. Every time I used this primer my makeup has stayed in place for ages. Like it’s almost kind of insane how great my makeup stays in place when I use this. It literally goes nowhere, no matter what I do, no matter where I am. It’s absolutely incredible.
I think it’s clear that I’m head over heals with this primer. I wasn’t too sure about it when I bought it because of the silicones, but o my, this is just the best. This primer made me see the difference a primer can make and it totally upped my foundation game. I’m in love with it and I highly, highly recommend buying it! I really think you should give this product a try!
