Beauty | Garnier Perfect Blur Primer

Garnier Perfect Blur Perfecting Primer - Boots £9.99 

Hi guys.
Bit of a different blog post today. If you've followed my blog for a while you will probably have realized  i never do or very rarely do anything beauty or skincare related.
Before i start i really don't claim to know anything about beauty products all i know is that if i see a product i like the look off and its reasonably priced i will by it and try it out. I much prefer to spend my money of clothes and shoes but apart from the shiny packaging something about this product stood out to me. So this is guna be a kind of review of sorts maybe a ramble i don't really know. Lets see how i get on.

Whenever i do my makeup i always use a primer. Ive never really cared about which one just one that does the trick. I used to use Lanacane anti chaffing gel which is amazing by the way, but i saw this Garnier Perfect Blur primer in Boots the other day and it was on offer (still is) and i had heard a lot of really good things about it.
Firstly i find this really heavy, i find that when i squeeze some onto my hand it feel like its not going to rub in if you know what i mean - but it does and it really does what it says on the tin - blurs your face.
It's a really odd texture its not a gel or cream its almost fluffy, if you haven't go into boots or anywhere that sells it and squeeze some on your hand because it really is an odd consistency, but as soon as its on it smooths over any pores and literally leaves your skin looking flawless.
I have a load of blemishes and generally my skin is very bad but as soon as i started using this i noticed a difference straight away, and it really does work in my opinion as soon as you put it on.
I'm not overly sure it makes makeup last longer, my makeup stays all day anyway and i have oily/combi skin but i never really need to touch my foundation up during the day when i use this.
For me this is perfect as i do wear full makeup nearly every day. If your more of a BB cream or light makeup kinda person i don't know if this would be good for you, as i say i find it quite heavy but if your doing full makeup its nice to have a clear smooth base to work on.
Has anyone else got any views of this?
