Face of Australia Face Base Primer – Review, Photos

I find this primer to be incredibly easy to apply. Unlike some other primers I have used, this is the consistency of a light, fluidy moisturiser. It doesn’t require any special application technique, I simply rub this into my face with my clean hands and let it absorb for a few minutes.


When I wear Face of Australia Face Base Primer I notice a marked difference in the wear time of my foundation. It will generally give me an additional 2-4 hours of wear depending on the formulation of the foundation I am using.


The packaging for Face of Australia Face Base Primer is basic, and that is all it needs to be. Presented in a simple black or white tube (depending on the formulation – SPF or no SPF), it is both hygienic to apply and easy to store.

Anything else worth mentioning?:

Face of Australia Face Base Primer both increases the wear time of my foundation, and temporarily improves the texture of my skin, ensuring a smooth and even foundation application.

I have previously reviewed this primer in the past, on Makeup by Sara-May. Feel free to read that review HERE.

I have had 2 tubes of this provided to me for editorial consideration in the past. However before these were sent I had purchased this primer, and I have purchased it again since. It is a true holy grail product for me.
