No7 Colour Calming Primer

Last weekend we posted about the undeniably boring, yet equally fantastic E45 Dry Scalp Shampoo. Today we're travelling down a somewhat similar avenue with this: a dull yet handy neutralising base from Boots No7.

Designed to cool and calm rosy complexions, this thick green cream is intended to be gently blended into the face straight after moisturising. With caring, conditioning ingredients, the pale pigments instantly neutralise unwanted redness leaving skin tone visibly more even. Although it can be worn by itself, we found it necessary to apply foundation to ensure a fresher, more natural finish.

If you suffer from redness you'll appreciate just how vital a product like this can be. We know many people who've picked up a tube and no longer feel self conscious about their cheeks burning up. However it can appear a bit patchy at times - which is no doubt the last thing you want if you're aiming for a smoother base. That being said, it does gives reasonably good wear and, most importantly, doesn't sting when applied.

On days when you find yourself piling on more and more foundation to block out constant blushes, this primer will definitely save both time and effort. Since being repackaged and renamed - it can also be purchased in Lavender. A soft, lilac tint intended to correct sallow and dull complexions.

When we find our face feeling a bit too hot and flushed, we're always pleased with the results this gives. At £10.75 for 40ml it's noticeably cheaper than most options provided by premium brands, but we do advise that you swatch in store first. Redness - whether it be on your nose, cheeks on chin - varies from case to case so be sure to check out if this formula works comfortably with your specific needs. Hypo-allergenic - this cream is suitable for those with both eczema and sensitive skin.

Boots No7 Colour Calming Primer is available from stores worldwide and for £10.75.
