Usually I skip primer in the morning but when a primer can help brighten my skin, I can be persuaded to fit it in. This is exactly what Benefit’s That Gal does, it’s a primer that can brighten your skin even if you skip foundation for the day. A few of the things I love the most about this product is it’s scent and packaging. While the scent may not be ideal for some, I like it a lot. It reminds me of laundry fresh out of the dryer, the scent of fabric softener on clothes. Then the packaging… remember those glue sticks used in school? That’s what this reminds me off, it’s fun to use. In addition to brightening my skin, I also liked how it left my skin feeling. It was very soft and smooth to the touch. It also helps your skin retain moisture, so gals with drier skin will love this on their face.
