Review: Becca Rejuvenating Primer


I make no secret of my love for Fragrance Direct, and I am forever placing cheeky little orders on there and marvelling at the low prices. One little treat that arrived a few weeks ago now is this Rejuvenating Primer by Becca, a brand I have seen and read lots about, but never dabbled in until now. There are a good few bits by Becca on Fragrance Direct at the moment, so if you have been wanting to give their stuff a go, now might be a good time.

The packaging looks quite simple and chic, although I think something about it is lacking the luxurious look I would expect from a brand sold in Space NK. Also, you really have to squeeze hard to get the product out, which I find a bit odd. 

As you can see from the photo below, this primer is a white cream, and it is really very thin and lightweight. If you aren't a fan of heavier primers that you can feel on your skin, such as POREfessional, something like this would be ideal for you. A little goes a long way, and it feels lovely and hydrating to apply. I can't comment on it's ability to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as it promises to on the bottle, but it does give the skin a glowy look. That said, so does my moisturiser. I think that's where my problem with this product lies; it doesn't have a very obvious effect, and so I kind of can't see that much point to it. It does make my skin feel nice and at this time of year, any extra nourishment is welcome, so I am using it. However, it's not exactly changing the appearance of my skin, therefore I can't see myself repurchasing this one.

 I have heard truly excellent things about other items by Becca, including their Resurfacing and Radiance primers, but I guess that's why this one was on Fragrance Direct and those ones weren't. Harsh, I know, but I would have been a bit gutted if I had spent the RRP of £32 on this; for £5 however, I don't regret buying it.




Have you tried anything from Becca? Do their other products live up to their reputation as a high-quality brand?

  1. What a fantastic bargain, sounds like I would have been disappointed too if I had paid the full price... pretty steep when you can get some really great ones at a much more budget friendly price :o) Xx
