Primera Skincare Review
Since Primera gifted me a couple of their products, I’ve learned what is meant by K-Beauty and Clean Beauty. I thought I knew what Clean Beauty meant, but I was wrong. 🤦🏽♀️Do you know what these beauty categories mean? I didn’t start following beauty and skincare trends until this year and I’m still learning! 😉 Primera skincare is Clean, K-Beauty.
“K-Beauty is an umbrella term for skin-care products that are derived from South Korea,” and “focuses on skin health, hydration and a preferred lack of pigment” according to Wikipedia. Their skincare focuses on “brightening” and I hope that does not mean bleaching, but I honestly have not thoroughly looked into this. Brightening products are very popular right now, whether K-beauty or not.⠀
As defined by Goop.com, Clean Beauty is “made without ingredients shown or suspected to harm human health.” They are mindfully created without any proven or suspected toxic ingredients. This was new information for me, as I’d assumed “Clean Beauty” meant it didn’t contain environmentally harmful ingredients.
