Per-fekt Skin Perfection Gel

DSC00641

Per-fekt is a relatively new brand to British shores, and has recently launched in Selfridges department stores (some of my favourites.) The skin perfection gel sits somewhere between the much-lauded BB cream and a regular foundation, giving a good amount of sheer coverage.

The lack of water in base of the product means you apply it directly with your fingers rather than a sponge or brush – and you need the tiniest amount. I have pale-ish skin (NW20) and use Luminous. It comes out worryingly brown – but blends into an even shade which is just perfect for me. When using the gel, I forgo my usual primers – the gel makes your skin feel silky smooth. Seriously – my face was stroke-able!

After application my face was even, and flaws were vastly minimized – I felt like it looked like how I want my skin to look like with no makeup (i.e. freckles still showed but redness didn’t). My regular (YSL) bronzer applied like a dream, and my makeup stayed put throughout the day – workout included.

This gel is now the one I grab when I’m in the mood to look polished but natural.

Skin Perfection Gel is priced at £49.50 and available at Selfridges.com

    That is pricey, but if it works as well as you say, I guess it’s worth it! What kind of consistency does it have that you can apply with your fingers? It sounds like a great product!

      Hi Samantha – yes it is a little more expensive, but you only need a little bit. The gel is quite mousse-like, and it is super easy to apply! 🙂 xxx
