Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Face Primer | Review with Swatches

No comments

Hi Guys,

I have been an Ole Henriksen fan for many years now. I have purchased so many of his products year after year, and I will continue to do so for years to come! I have so many favourites from the brand, so when I heard that he was coming out with this new Banana Bright Face Primer, I knew I had to have it!

I was lucky enough to be chosen by Influenster to review the primer. They sent me the product free for review for my honest thoughts. If you haven’t joined Influenster, I highly recommend you sign up as I receive so many free products to review!

Now on to the primer!!!


What It Is: A vitamin C-infused, illuminating face primer with banana powder-inspired pigments that delivers instant radiance while improving and extending makeup wear.

I have been a skincare fanatic for as long as I can remember. I always take care of my skin and I use many different products to do so. I am so happy that Ole came out with this primer that is filled with so many good for your skin ingredients because I love that I am now getting an extra skincare step in my regular makeup routine. Give me all the anti-aging ingredients please!!

  • Vitamin C – Is known to target visible signs of aging such as dark spots and wrinkles, it also boosts skin’s collagen production, and even helps to fight free radical damage caused by UV radiation.
  • Vitamin E – Is an antioxidant that helps nourish and condition the skin. It also protects the skin from environmental stressors and adds hydration to the skin.
  • Banana Powder-Inspired Pigments – Helps to instantly illuminate the skin.


I have oily / combination skin and this primer works so well for me. I was a little worried when I read that the primer is illuminating and radiant, but I find that it actually controls my oils really well and keeps me significantly less oily than without the primer. It has a really nice, light and fresh citrus scent, and I find that the banana shade really helps to colour correct and lessen the redness in my skin.

The formula is like a velvety cream that leaves my skin ultra soft and smooth. It fills in all my pores and imperfections and plumps up my skin making it look hydrated, smooth, and more youthful. I especially love wearing this primer on no makeup days because it just makes me look so healthy!

I love that this primer can be mixed into your foundation! How genius, I don’t know why I have never thought to do this! I like to mix it into my more matte formulas to make them more hydrating / natural looking and I will just pump the primer and the foundation on the back of my hand and mix it up with my foundation brush or sponge.

It is official, I am impressed by this primer and I urge you guys to go to Sephora to get a sample!!

Have you tried this primer yet? Is it on your Sephora Sale List? Let me know down below!
