ARK Skincare - Anti-Ageing Skin Protector Primer

I don't have many anti ageing products but that's sure something I am taking in consideration now! It's easy to prevent and delay signs of ageing. ARK skincare's anti-ageing primer was in the Leicester Meetup goodie bag that I put together and I am really thankful to ARK for taking part! I've used other ARK products previously and have been extremely pleased with them. It's brand that has a great concept towards anti-ageing. All products are divided in age categories which is something new.

Anti-Ageing Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer (30ml) £36*

ARK's anti-ageing skin protector primer comes in really lovely, sleek white packaging and the bottle in which the product is present itself is also very nice. Another thing I appreciate about this product is that it comes with a pump which makes it easier t use and you know much you'd need approximately. I use only one pump which is enough to cover my entire face. Ingredient wise it contains extracts of jojoba, sunflower, mimosa shea butter and vitamin E which are all very beneficial to our skin. The product comes out in a very creamy (almost like a moisturiser) form and is white. One you apply it on your face the texture is very smooth of the product and goes on almost like a creamy mask or moisturiser. You have to work it in with your fingers and in a few seconds it gets absorbed into your skin and becomes transparent. It leaves my skin feeling really soft and smooth and quite plump almost. I've not used a primer that has done that before so I was impressed by this. I also like how it makes my foundation or BB cream appear a lot better. It gets rid of any dry patches around my cheeks as well as fills in any pores. It's a very light weight product and not greasy or sticky upon applying it which can be the case with some primers (I've had some of those!). I also use it on it's own a lot because it adds a touch of glow to my skin and makes it appear healthy and just simply great!  In terms of helping to keep foundation on for longer, it does that well too. My foundation lasts for up to 6-8 which is how long I wear it for and it glides on. It doesn't move or slide at all. Another thing to note is that this primer contains SPF 30 which is another added bonus. I almost forgot to mention this but smells great and great for sensitive skin!  

I'd recommend the ARK skin primer if you're looking for one that gives great results. 
It's a little on the expensive side but it feels expensive if you know what I mean. It's an investment to make!
Have you tried anything from ARK before?
