A Makeup Primer with Caffeine?

About two years ago I used a makeup primer and fell in love! Only problem was I couldn't afford to keep using that particular primer. So when I was given the opportunity to review Youthful Trends Caffeinated Makeup Primer I jumped at it. 
From the site-

Youthful Trends Makeup Primer is the world's first caffeinated primer with 100% natural ingredients. Makeup primers are all the rage these days, and they are used to help set your makeup and reduce the appearance of lines while absorbing oils and binding makeup to the skin. Unlike sticky primers and serums, this water based spray dries evenly while hydrating skin and tightening lines. Our spray also helps pores breathe and keeps makeup looking beautiful all day long. It also reduces facial sweating and protects skin from UV damage. This proprietary formula outperforms all other makeup primers and one bottle lasts for many months. It's fantastic stuff works for all skin types and colors, as well as all types of makeup including mineral powders, creams and liquids. Supercharge your makeup regimen today for flawless beauty with the world's first caffeinated skin primer.

I received my sample at the best time possible. The temps here in Arkansas are hitting high 90's and the heat index is 100+. I helped Kelly move not once but twice in the heat and I was a hot mess. (One of Kel's phrases) I was sweaty and what made it worse was I was having to dodge wasp! I have to say though this primer was wonderful! My makeup was actually still on my face when I got home. I figured I would be all freckled out but no the primer stayed in place and that helped my makeup do the same.

I also wore it when Nikki had Drex...we were at the hospital a long time! I cried many tears that night and yes the primer even works with tears!

This primer is really affordable compared to some of the others out right now. It's on sale for $27.49 AND I was given a special coupon code for my readers! Just use the code (SHEBLOGS) at either or and get 25% off your bottle of the caffeniated makeup primer!

While your visiting the sites check out the capsaicin skin care products at 

I would like to try the ThermaSkin face fixing soap.
They say it's like botox in a bottle....real botox scares and intrigues me so I need to try this one!

I've never heard of make-up primer. What a genius idea!
