An Old Favourite // That Gal Brightening Face Primer

I first bought Benefit's That Gal Brightening Face Primer when I was thirteen or fourteen, and I loved it. Well, four to five years down the line and I finally repurchased.

That Gal does what it says on the tin, it brightens your complexion and gives you that lovely "lit from within" glow. Although it doesn't claim to, this pearly peach coloured silky primer also creates a beautifully smooth base for applying foundation over. You can also use it over foundation as a very subtle, dewy highlight. I love to lightly tap it over my cheekbones for a healthy glow, if I don't feel like using a more pronounced highlighter. It also smells amazing, but I can't put my finger on what the scent is!

I can't really fault That Gal, except for the price tag. I'm sure you can find something similar for a cheaper price, but £22.50 isn't completely unreasonable for a product you love, you know? I would totally recommend this if you are in the market for a brightening primer!


  1. I got a sample of this a few months ago and I really like it too :) I agree with you about the price tag though! xx

  2. This looks amazing, just the price tag holds me back!

    1. Exactly! I actually used a gift card to pay half of it - or else I probably wouldn't have picked it up again!

  3. I had a sample of this but never tried it (I know, unbelievable lol). I am not rally a fan of brightening product and I am kind of afraid of highlighting my face because I'm not expert to it. I have heard so many people rave about this and maybe it's about time to let myself know what the hype is all about. and can I just say you have a mad photography skills?? I love your photos and blog! looks so fancy xx

    1. I think you should try it! It's not at all shimmery and when applied under foundation it just gives you a nice healthy glow. If you have the sample then why not, eh? ^_^ And thank you so much!
