    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 brightening primer 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 5 out of 5 by from Love this Primer This is my 3rd purchase of this primer and it is still outstanding in performance. i put this on in the mornings on my bare face (after using the OH Banana brightening cloths) prior to any pore filling primers or anything. love the smell and that it wakes me up a bit in AM as well. i have the entire Orange, Blue and Green OH lines and they are all phenomenal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So creamy and smooth This is my new favorite primer! I love how smooth and creamy it is but also super effective. My make up stays put all day, even without setting powders or sprays. I prep my skin with Ole Henriksen cleansers, masks, toners, serums and moisturizers and they complement each other great! I highly recommend this product as well as the brand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail I have been looking into buying products off of Olehenriksen for a while now, I finally bought the Banana Bright Face Primer for makeup as I don’t have primer and I ended up getting the Truth Serum and the On The Glow Cleansing Wipes.... and all I can say is that I am absolutely IN LOVE. The primer is amazing, I actually wear it alone sometimes without makeup because it is so glowy and makes my skin look so good with the serum. I actually am considering buying the face wipes regularly because of how good they worked and I NEVER purchase face wipes online because so can go to my local store but THESE!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great I love almost all OleHenriksen products; however this face primer is awful. I guess if you want to just used it at something to put on when you're not going to wear foundation then it would be fine. It does make your face feel fresh and has a nice smell, but it does nothing for pores and it made my foundation look terrible and uneven.

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!
