17 Photo Flawless Skin Primer...

Boots 17 Photo Flawless Skin Primer
When I found this in my local Boots, I snapped it up straight away. A skin primer for £4.99! I'd have been crazy not to right?

The primer I've been using is the L'Oreal Professional Resurfacing Primer, which is around £14.99 for the same amount of product, and honestly, I like the 17 one so much more after a month of using it. 
The application is so much nicer with the squeeze tube rather than the jar, and it is also more hygienic as there are no fingers going into the product etc. 

As for make up longevity, I can say that I do notice a difference when I don't wear this under my foundation, especially around oily areas of my skin around my nose, forehead and chin where my foundation just slips off. It leaves my skin as a lovely smooth base, and any enlarged pores do look reduced. 
This product is a clear gel like formula whereas the L'Oreal one is more of a pink toned soufflé and it seems to give more of a matte effect after application too, which for my skin type is perfect. 
I have yet to test the 'photo flawless' element of this product, but with the results I have already seen by using this, I can't see it disappointing me. 

Would you give this a go? Do you have any primer recommendations?

Much Love,
Lauran
