How The Primally Pure Skincare Collection Enhances My Routine

How The Primally Pure Skincare Collection Enhances My Routine

I stumbled upon Primally Pure while scrolling through my favorite green skincare accounts on Instagram. Although I had seen their name pop up in the clean skincare community several times, it was when I explored their products that I truly understood what all the buzz was about. 

Initially, I was skeptical of Primally Pure due to the abundance of skincare brands that claim to be "clean" but fail to deliver on that claim. However, Primally Pure proved to be the real deal. Founder Bethany McDaniel's passion for simple yet effective ingredients that promote wellness shone through. Upon inspecting their ingredient lists, I was genuinely impressed. Organic ingredients, thoughtfully selected oils, and exceptionally nourishing skincare products formed the backbone of their offerings. To put them to the test, the Primally Pure team generously sent me a selection of products to experience, and below, I'll walk you through my journey with these Primally Pure products, highlighting those I've fallen in love with.

My Primally Pure Skincare Collection Review

I've developed a deep affinity for these products and how they've improved my skin's feel and appearance. Below, I'll delve into the details of each product, its benefits, and how I incorporate it into my daily skincare routine.

1. Plumping Serum

Plumping Serum

Shop For $52


The Plumping Serum boasts green coffee oil and antioxidant-rich astaxanthin, which promote a dewy complexion—additionally, a castor and pomegranate seed oil base targets collagen production and deep hydration.

How I'm Using It:

This serum's density allows me to use it as an "oil." Typically, I conclude my skincare routine with an oil topcoat as the final step. However, due to the additional beneficial ingredients, I prefer to apply a few drops directly to clean skin to maximize the benefits.

2. Plumping Cream

Plumping Cream

Shop For $34


This creamy potion aids in reducing sun damage while delivering essential vitamins to the skin. The formula brightens, hydrates, and plumps up the skin, partly by encouraging blood flow to the surface. After applying one of their plumping moisturizers, you can further enhance this effect by using Primally Pure's Bian Gua Sha tool.

How I'm Using It:

I use this as a night cream when my skin needs a brightening boost. Alternatively, I sometimes apply a small amount alongside the serum as a moisturizing layer under makeup. Due to its intense hydration, a little goes a long way. Consequently, I use less when applying it under makeup, seeking moisture without the densely refreshing effect of a night cream application.

3. Plumping Bar

Plumping Bar

Shop For $16


The antibacterial Plumping Bar leaves the skin calm and not stripped. It harnesses carrot seed oil, coconut milk, and pink kaolin clay to nourish and detoxify the skin. Additionally, rose flower adds calming properties, making it ideal for irritated or dry skin.

How I'm Using It:

I keep this bar in the shower to effectively remove a full makeup face. Sometimes, I apply a generous amount of Cleansing Oil (for normal skin) to my face. This oil cleansing method effectively lifts buildup, makeup, and debris from the skin, and pairing it with the Plumping Bar ensures my face is perfectly clean and soft. Following this, I always follow up with a serum and oil/moisturizer.

4. Plumping Mask

Plumping Mask

Shop For $52


Raw honey and bakuchiol (a natural, gentler alternative to retinol) give this mask youth-boosting power. Hibiscus, rose kaolin clay, and astaxanthin provide the vibrant red color of this product.

How I'm Using It:

This mask is my go-to when heading out at night or wanting to wake up with a glowing complexion. The Plumping Mask revitalizes dull skin, offering protection with antioxidants and stimulating blood flow to the skin's surface. I apply it to my face and neck 10 minutes before showering, then rinse off with warm water and an organic hemp cloth.

5. Blue Tansy Body Oil

Blue Tansy Body Oil

Shop For $46


The enchanting color of this calming body oil comes from azulene, the blue-hued component of the blue tansy flower. It's formulated with fractionated coconut, kukui nut, and argan oil.

How I'm Using It:

Pure's Blue Tansy line is my go-to remedy for soothing red or irritated skin. I apply this oil when my skin craves extra care, especially during dry and harsh winters. After showering, while my skin is damp, I use 2-3 pumps from head to toe (skipping the face) to lock in moisture. Then, I swipe on my chosen Primally Pure Deodorant to complete the routine.

6. Soothing Cream

Soothing Cream

Shop For $42


Oils like emu, sandalwood, and blue tansy are the foundation of this anti-inflammatory formula. Primally Pure's Soothing Cream is perfect for sensitive skin prone to redness, inflammation, dehydration, sunburns, eczema, and rosacea.

How I'm Using It:

While I don't consider my skin sensitive, I do have rosacea on my cheeks. Consequently, I gravitate toward products designed for redness-prone skin. This cream, like their plumping cream, is luxuriously thick and nourishing. A little goes a long way. After cleansing and applying a serum, I use this cream on my skin. Primally Pure offers a soothing serum that complements this product beautifully.

7. Everything Spray

Everything Spray

Shop For $20


Ingredients like witch hazel, lavender hydrosol, and apple cider vinegar make this formula antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. Magnesium oil further supports the body in carrying out over 300 reactions.

How I'm Using It:

I see this product as a specific treatment for my skin. The ingredients are pretty balanced, making it ideal when my skin is acting up. I mist it onto my skin after cleansing when dealing with breakouts. Following this, I apply a few drops of serum and a small amount of cream, preparing my skin for makeup or providing a protective layer without makeup.

8. Tinted Lip Balm

Tinted Lip Balm

Shop For $12


This lip balm adds a shimmer with a deep cranberry color, bringing a holiday spirit to your lips. Notes of vanilla and sweet mint make your lips extra kissable. Cocoa butter and beeswax lock in moisture.

How I'm Using It:

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Primally Pure offers a lip color, my ideal shade. Usually, I blend multiple lip colors to achieve a clay red/dark pink mix. I love that this formula not only adds color but also provides moisture. It has sufficient pigment to be worn on its own, yet it can also serve as a primer or topcoat for your regular makeup look.

9. Fancy Face Serum

Fancy Face Serum

Shop For $48


Fancy Face Serum is a vitamin and antioxidant-rich blend of Earth's most potent healing oils. This serum is suitable for all skin types and addresses fine lines, scarring, age spots, discolorations, and more.

How I'm Using It:

I apply a few drops to freshly cleansed skin at the end of the day, along with the moisturizer. My skincare routine involves cleansing my face in the morning and at night. Mornings typically consist of oil cleansing, while evenings involve using one of Primally Pure's bar soaps for a deep, sudsy clean. With its rich, dark brown color, this serum feels like a cure-all for my facial redness, uneven tones, and blemishes.

Final Verdict

In conclusion, my experience with Primally Pure skincare has been incredibly positive. These products have become essential to my skincare routine, offering effective solutions for various skin concerns. Whether dealing with redness, dryness, breakouts, or simply looking to enhance your skincare regimen with clean and nourishing products, Primally Pure has thoughtfully curated a range of options to transform your daily routine into a luxurious self-care ritual.
