Welcome back to my month-long Best of Beauty countdown. Keeping within the category of primers, I could not do a Best of Countdown without mentioning this one. This primer drew soooooooo much attention when it was released, as much for its price as for its performance 😩. I was one of the people who fell into the hype of it all, but I am so happy that I did. The Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer is worth every penny and here’s why…
First, let me address the price. $52 is an outrageous price for a primer. Yes. However, if you consider that this primer is made of silk extracts, silk powder, and pink and gold pearl (plus a ton of skin-saving botanicals), you start to be able to appreciate the higher cost.
If you further consider that this balm can be used on the eyes, lips and face to protect against both environmental aggressors and any makeup products from sinking into the skin, The Silk canvas starts feeling more like skincare for your entire face…. and we all know that skincare can get pricey very quickly.
All that being said, I really do think The Silk Canvas Primer lived up to its claims. I saw way less breakouts as a result of makeup being unable to get down into my pores. My makeup went on more smoothly. Even on no makeup days, I would put it on just to add a protective barrier and soft filter to my skin.
I bought this product back during the spring VIB Sale, and after consistent use, am just getting ready to finish it up. I definitely can see myself repurchasing it, as it is just as much a skincare benefit, as it is a makeup product. Also, as I mentioned in my The Water Cream review, I feel good knowing that every Tatcha purchase supports girls’ education worldwide. ✨
Do you guys have any makeup products that also provide skincare benefits? Let’s chat!
