Too Faced Hangover Primer | Review

Beauty product reviews don't seem to appear much on my blog anymore which makes me sad, considering that I am always finding new products that I love. I am trying to make it my mission this year to upload a new product review weekly but we are already in the third month and only one review has been written. However, I recently picked up the Too Faced Hangover Primer after hearing a whole tonne of positive reviews on it, I resisted purchasing it for the longest time due to its steep price of £27 from Debenhams or £32 from Too Faced (for 40ml of product). 

I am probably the worst person for mixing oil and water based products together, I think everybody who has studied Science will know that Oil and Water just will not mix and instead, will separate. Two of my favourite foundation primers are the Benefit Porefessional and the Smashbox Photo Finish as they even out my skin so well however, these products are both oil/silicone based and it appears to be rather difficult to find oil based foundations that would work incredibly with these products. Aside from the Too Faced Hangover Primer, there has only really been one water based primer that I have previously gotten on with which is the This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up which retails for £30 and is a mask, moisturiser and primer all in one.

The Too Faced Hangover Primer comes in a sophisticated box and tube with a pink to white ombre design and despite appearing like a squeezey tube, actually has a pump ensuring that no product goes to waste. The first thing that stuck out to me was the strong yet refreshing coconut scent, the product is actually infused with coconut water and probiotic-based ingredients, giving extra hydration however, if you don't like coconut, I would stay clear. 

This face primer aims to hydrate and boost skin radiance, promotes skins elasticity and soothes, smooths and brightens skin for a dewy, healthy looking finish. This primer is also formulated without gluten and parabens meaning that it is not only cruelty free, but actually vegan. This product is also Silicone free meaning that it would work well with any water-based foundation.


I find this product extremely soothing on the skin, super refreshing and nourishing and my skin does feel a lot healthier and smoother since using this primer. It really is a Replenishing Face Primer. I know I said earlier, but I adore the scent so much, it really lifts your mood and relaxes you. I have seen a massive improvement of my foundation once priming with this product, I find that my foundation blends easier, gives a much more flawless finish and doesn't crease or settle into my fine lines and pores. The product itself is lightweight, gentle and isn't too thick nor thin, a little does go a long way. I really couldn't recommend this product enough, it has become a staple within my collection and I am constantly reaching for it. If you are wanting to give this product a go but are still unsure, the travel size version of this product is only £12 from Debenhams.


Overall, I love this product, I couldn't fault it and am tempted to try the Primed & Peachy Foundation Primer but will it compare? Have you tried either of these products? What do you think?


Thank-you for reading, Tay x
