Gosh Prime 'N' Set

I have collected over the past year a fair few primers, and my skin has definitely changed over this period. Currently my skin is combination and sometimes I have a more oily t zone, so I am always keeping my eyes peeled for a mattifying primer. 
I was recently browsing the isles in Superdrug and came across Gosh Prime 'N' Set powder for £9.99 I thought this was a bit of a bargain and the texture felt so silky and soft, I may as well buy and give it a whirl.

What is great about this primer is your foundation goes on so smoothly after applying the powder to your face, I was a little bit worried about powdering first as this is quite backwards in any makeup routine and worried my foundation might stick to the powder and not seem even and maybe blotchy, however this is the total opposite, my foundation goes on so evenly and there is no shine what so ever, the affect this primer gives is such good value for money, it's one of the best primers I have ever used (and there's been a few!) Usually I would need to powder throughout the day, but I rarely have to touch my  face up when using this.
I apply this over the whole of my face, you don't need much as the powder blends generously all over and I brush section by section starting on my t zone, and working the brush over my forehead, cheeks and chin, so I usually only use the excess on the brush, for me that is enough. I then apply my foundation buff that in for a good few minutes and then apply a tiny bit more of the Gosh powder, and that sets my make up for the whole day.

If you are looking for a primer which will keep oil and bay and keep the shine to a minimum, then I would highly recommend this, it's translucent so doesn't give your face a ghostly pale affect. I warm up my face with bronzer anyway, and always use a highlight to create a natural looking glow, this isn't necessary for everyone, it's just incorporated in to my usual makeup routine. 

Have you got any primers you swear by? I hope you enjoyed this review, keep your eyes peeled for some new posts over April.
