Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer

Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer | £10.99 | Boots

As soon as January hits I make it my mission to remedy the dull winter skin that December has given me and Christmas has only made worse with all those tempting quality street tins and glasses of wine. Of course this should ideally start with skincare and I assure you I'll be slapping on the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal mask like there's no tomorrow over the next few weeks, but what every busy girl really needs is a quick brightening fix and I think I've found just the thing with the Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer. I'm sure you've all heard lots about the Bourjois Happy Light foundation which came out a few months ago, but this primer is a fairly new addition to the blogasphere and isles of Boots. At £10.99 it's not the cheapest drugstore primer out there but I do think the results are worth the price tag...First of all the formula is perfect- lightweight, moisturising and silky smooth without feeling watered down or thick or containing drying silicon, this glides on like a treat and my skin loves it. Two pumps of this and my skin looks and feels instantly more hydrated, smoothed out and glowy. I think it's pink colour is what makes it so illuminating so don't be put off by that- I promise it doesn't give you a tubby custard tinge or Edward Cullen sparkle! This would be a nice product to wear on no make up days but it also works amazingly under make up as a primer because it makes foundation go on so much better and then last all day with a lovely subtle glow. For you more oily skinned lovelies afraid of adding extra glow Bourjois also do a mattifying Happy Light primer primer- oh yes they really have thought of everything (even the packaging is classy and glassy!). The only downside is how quickly the product seems to go down, so I'll probably need to make my way back to those Boots isles pretty soon...oopsie! 

Have you tried the Bourjois 'Happy Light' range?        


  1. I definitely need this! I'll be hitting the boots isle asap!

  2. i need a new primer and this one seems perfect! thanks for the review xx

  3. I am yet to try out a primer so might actually look into this one some more :) X

  4. again, wish we had bourjois in the states!! I think the closest thing we have in the states is the L'Oreal lumi primer!
    Looks lovely! Great review!

  5. I wish they carried Bourjois where I live, I've been wanting to try this x

  6. It sounds to me as if it's trying to be similar to the YSL Serum foundation, which I absolutely LOVE, so I'd definitely love to try it. Just imagine if it's almost as good as that - what a find that would be :o). Xx
