Primer ini mengandung SPF 32 +++ jadi cukup lumayan ya kalau lagi malas pakai sunblock terpisah.
Menurut saya teksturnya liquidy-creamy gitu (if that makes any sense). Saya biasanya memakai 2-3 pumps untuk seluruh wajah dan leher. Cukup dapat membuat kulit wajah terlihat lebih halus dan glowy, walaupun warnanya agak sedikit ashy di kulit saya, tapi tidak apa-apa toh akan ditimpa dengan foundation dan atau loose powder lagi.
Rasanya ringan dan sama sekali tidak terasa berminyak serta cukup melembabkan.
Untuk sehari-hari biasanya saya hanya memakai primer ini dan Three Ultimate Diaphanous Loose Powder ditambah Cargo HD powder sebagai bronzer (karena warnanya terlalu gelap di kulit saya, jadinya saya pakai sebagai bronzer saja).
Kombinasi ini bertahan selama 3-4 jam pada kulit saya yang kombinasi cenderung berminyak di kondisi cuaca Jakarta yang panaaas sekali belakangan ini.
THREE is a high end Japanese brand I had my eyes on for quiet some time. So when I found out that the brand is now available in Jakarta , I literally made an excuse to go to the shopping mall where THREE counter is located xD.
Good thing is, they were having a promo for the Primer + Foundation duo for only IDR 790.000 ( ca. US$ 60 ) instead of its regular price for IDR 1.190.000 ( ca. US$ 90 ). That kind of promo is not something you should say no to, am I right?
The Protective Pristine Primer comes in 2 variants ; translucent and glow. According to the BA, the translucent is good to create a soft blur-flawless base and hides pores ( similar to the effect you get from Benefit Porefessional or Smashbox PhotoReady Primer ) and glow is good to create luster - moisturized base and clear looking skin. Since I have both Porefessional and Smashbox PhotoReady Primer, I decided to go with the glow one, and based on my hand swatch, the glow one felt nicer.
According to the THREE website, the primer is made of 80% naturally-derived ingredients and free from UV absorbing chemical, parabens, synthetic perfumes, animal-derived ingredients, and mineral oils. It also contains 8 botanical oils such as Incha Inchi oil ( only God knows what it is , lol ) , tea seed oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, evening primrose oil, rosehip oil, shea butter, and bees wax. Looking at those ingredients, I can't help to feel very optimistic about the product and I am glad that it doesn't disappoint.
The Pristine Primer Glow has a runny-liquid texture. It is very lightweight and hence perfect for a base as it won't make your skin feels thick or too much. The primer spreads effortlessly and I like it best to apply it using my fingers, just like how I'd apply my daily moisturizer. It gives a slight hint of coverage and even though it won't be sufficient to work on its own without the help of foundation, it does correct the skin tone and prep the skin to be a better canvas for the foundation. It def helps enlighten the job of foundation and concealer.
Speaking whether it prolongs the wear of foundation, I must say it does but only when it is paired with the THREE Flawless Ethereal Fluid Foundation. I noticed the foundation does look nice longer with this primer and the foundation also applies better over the primer. Together they work like a dream team, but when I tried this primer with other foundation ( GA Luminous Silk and MAC Studio fix Plus ) , it didn't really prolong the wear of both foundations and but it still worked well as a base. I also like the beige-yellowish undertone which helps reduce the appearance of redness around my cheek areas. Oh and the primer has SPF 32+++ PA which is great but means you can't really wear it for flash photography.
Overall, after wearing both products every single day the past 3 weeks, I can say that I am very happy with the performance given and is completely smitten with the brand. I will definitely try another products
