    Skincare + makeup come face to face. It’s lit.

    Meet Banana Bright Face Primer, the vitamin C-powered illuminating makeup primer that delivers instant radiance while improving and extending makeup wear.

    Inspired by the makeup artist must-have—“banana powder”—this subtly sunny makeup primer contains brightening pigments to bring radiance to the entire complexion. Whether it’s worn under makeup, mixed in with foundation, or even worn alone, Banana Bright Face Primer creates a dewy, healthy-looking glow.

    But that’s not all. The look of fine lines and wrinkles—instantly softened. Skin’s appearance—smoothed. With its soft-focus effect, this formula creates a luminous canvas for an Ole Glow® that lasts and lasts.

  • Inspiration

    This primer was created to work with Banana Bright Eye Crème as the ultimate pairing for radiant, makeup-ready skin. Ole drew inspiration from a makeup technique he observed during his years of on-camera work: ”banana powder.” Its subtly sunny tint is designed to instantly brighten and color-correct.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I’ve been hearing about this primer for almost a year now, I had a 15 off 30 coupon so I decided to take the plunge and by it. It’s a great primer especially if you want that glow on your base, it also has my foundation apply on very smooth. It has great skincare benefits but it’s not pore filling or oil controlling. I feel like it’s been lighting my dark spots on my skin gradually so that’s a plus. I’ve been using this for about 2 weeks now so so far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this primer! This primer is the best! I have tried many others & they seem to sit in my fine lines but this one does not AND it gives you a little glow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Best Foundation Primer EVER!! I received 2 tiny samples of this primer and after using day 1, at the end of the day, I thought my foundation looked really good. I hadn’t even remembered I had put it on. Then day 2 after a long work day, same thing, only I remembered the primer. I am a nurse, work long shifts and when I have my foundation look as good after 14 hours as when I first put on, I knew I would not be ever without it. One day I was in a hurry and overlooked putting it on. I couldn’t believe how my foundation was almost completely gone and wrinkles seemed so obvious. This is wonderful stuff, try it. You will not be disappointed, I guarantee!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Primer but Packaging Needs an Upgrade I am an avid user of many OleHenriksen products for my routine. I really liked the texture and feel of this primer, however, the pump on the bottle is not up to their normal standards. If I could screw off the top to get the product out I would. This can be worn under your makeup but also looks great alone! Would be a nice benefit if it contained sunscreen!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from UMMM.........NO I discovered that this product does not work well with all skin tones and is mostly for those of a light and fair complexion and anything darker than is not a match. I tried it on my skin it left it looking white and shinny like i had setting powder with lotion and highlight allover my face i would only recommend this product for lighter skin tones only!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This primer is the truth! No matter if you are a light, medium, or full coverage foundation wearer this primer gives this natural dewy glow under your make up that is amazing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overhyped. I’m giving this product 3 stars because it is very nice and does indeed brighten but the piling and the scent are so off-putting! No matter what I eliminated from my skincare routine or how long I waited between layers it peels so bad. Maybe if this offered spf protection, I could skip my sunscreen but changing my routine for one product is not worth it. And the scent is so unnecessary and smells like some kind of citrus cleaning product. I was able to see how beautiful this product was when I GENTLY patted and not rubbed it in but then if I touched my face for any reason afterward or tried putting on concealer or foundation there went the piling. I wish I could give this a better review because I was so excited to use this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So smoothing! This product feels so good on the skin. It hydrated and feels velvety when it dries. I have extremely dry skin and I can wear this alone for some smoothness or under a semi matte foundation and it doesn’t over hydrate or slip around or make me look greasy. Great product!
