When I first started using the Victoria Beckham Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturiser, I couldn’t quite work out whether it was a moisturiser or a primer, I mean ultimately it’s both, but for me I’ve always had a separate moisturiser and then a make-up primer. So I think I just couldn’t quite get my head around it. Which is weird because more recently I cut out using primer and just opted for my moisturiser as my base before make-up. So for example my routine is, serums, moisturiser and then SPF, so where did this fit in? Was it hydrating enough to take over as my moisturiser? Do I still layer SPF on top? Especially in Winter I like a thicker moisturiser so I wasn’t sure this would really fit in with my routine. Victoria Beckham describes it as a skincare product and to be honest I think I just got fixated on the actual name of the product.After using it regularly I’ve discovered it really is both, it’s a hybrid between a primer and moisturiser. Primarily I would say it’s a moisturiser but it is probably one of the best moisturisers I’ve used for under my make-up, hence making it an amazing primer. It creates a perfect canvas underneath your foundation as it isn’t too thick, it isn’t tacky and gives a smooth and illuminated glow, think of Victoria and you just see her glowing skin in your head. I really wasn’t sure it would be hydrating enough for my dehydrated skin, but as long as I layer with my serums it’s good for during the day and then at night I’d opt for one of my other moisturisers. If your skin is on the drier side, I would recommend layering it with something slightly thicker.Victoria Beckham Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturiser has been formulated with skincare guru and expert Professor Augustinus Bader, which I may have just made this up but I’m sure I read that it’s David Beckham’s favourite skincare brand. The product has his patented TFC8® technology which as described as a ‘complex of natural amino acids, high-grade vitamins and synthesized molecules naturally found in skin, which guides key nutrients and powerful natural ingredients to the skin cells, creating an optimal environment for the body’s innate processes of repair and renewal.’ Other notable ingredients include natural black tea ferment, natural papaya enzymes, micro algae extract, and avocado oil. As you can see Victoria’s beauty brand focuses on clean beauty.
The packaging is beautiful, I love the tortoiseshell design and it feels weighty, you definitely would want this shown off on your dressing table or be happy to pull it out of your make-up bag at work.The only thing I wish is that it had SPF so I didn’t have to add an additional layer on top and I could reap the full benefits of using this underneath my make-up. You can wear it alone but for me I think it works best as a priming moisturiser, rather than a stand alone moisturiser. I’m enjoying using it and I’m interested to see how my skin fairs after using it for awhile.
