Great Set!

By ElleDee

Comments about Real Techniques Prep + Prime Set:

I bought this mainly for the metal eye roller thing, but they're all great. The face exfoliator is gentle enough for me to use often, even with sensitive skin. I find myself using the lip brush the least because it can be pretty harsh, but it's great if you need a lot of exfoliating. I use the other brush to put on my face lotion so I don't have to worry about getting it gunked up under my nails.

      Comments about Real Techniques Prep + Prime Set:

      I use this morning and nights. It makes me feel luxurious applying my moisturizer with a brush and rolling on my eye cream. The lip brush actually surprised me, I use it with a scrubbing lip balm every now and then and I'm not sure if it's the lip balm or brush but it does make my lips feel waaaay softer and plus it's fun! But these are the only tools I use from this set, the last brush really doesn't have a use for me and I honestly don't even know where it is. It doesn't even bother me that I lost it.

          i love the eye reviver in this set! it feels amazing and cooling. i didn't know how much i would love putting on eye cream with this. i can't wait for every morning when i get to use it again :)

          the lip brush is good. slightly too harsh for my sensitive lips; i prefer an oil based moisturizing scrub. but if you have chapped or flaking lips, i think it would be fantastic.

          i haven't noticed much with the face brush but that may be because i use other products to remove dry skin. i haven't yet used the brush intended for moisturizers and serums. i'm going to use it when i mask. i'm sure it's as good as the others in the set.

          but, for real, get it for the eye reviver! if that's the only thing you liked, it'd still be worth it in this price range.

              This is a great set! I love the under eye reviver, it stays so cool and refreshes the delicate skin around the eyes. The lip brush is my second fave, it's nice and firm and I feel like it definitely helps to keep chapped lips at bay. My only complaint is that the dry facial brush could be a lot firmer. I am not sure it does much and may use it as a contour brush or something instead.

              Nice

              Comments about Real Techniques Prep + Prime Set:

              I bought this for the eye reviver, but I do enjoy the other tools.

              Eye reviver - extremely cooling and feels so nice to use in the morning and evening with eye cream. Makes doing that skin care step so enjoyable and now I really take the time to massage the area whereas before I just slather the cream on.

              Dry brush - very interesting tool. Definitely nice to stimulate blood flow around the face... need to keep using to see if this is beneficial for me. But so far, it's fun to use and a nice tool to wake up the face.

              Moisturizer brush - I could do without this one... it's like a flat foundation brush. It's not necessary but it does feel luxurious to use... like I feel special. Definitely faster to use your fingers, but using the brush actually saves more product because then your hands don't absorb the moisturizer. I think for mask application it will be amazing and precise. Or if you want to apply moisturizer on another person's face, it will feel more professional.

              Lip brush - love this exfoliating brush. Right up my alley. Just add a balm and scrub away dead skin cells. Exactly what I was looking for in a lip scrub. Regular lip scrubs in a pot or stuck fork never worked for me. I always used a tooth brush or a towel to scrub my lips. Now I finally have a brush I can use! Love it.

              Comments about Real Techniques Prep + Prime Set:

              I bought this set for the undereye tool. I regularly use a depuffing product that has a metal roller applicator, which helps with lymph drainage and pushing moisturizer into my skin. The problem is that products like these apply more and more moisturizer as you roll. This Real Techniques undereye tool is great for applying a set amount of moisturizer. It does not roll so you need to use enough moisturizer to let it slip until absorbed. I held back a star because I wish I could have purchased it individually. I do enjoy the facial dry brush and lip exfoliator. The primer brush works well, but I prefer to use my fingers.

                Comments about Real Techniques Prep + Prime Set:

                The brushes are great, I especially love the roller ball for eye creams and the small brush for lips, very good for exfoliation. The brushes seem to be made of good quality so I'm interested to see how long they last with regular use.

                I didn't receive the dry exfoliating brush, instead I received two of the moisturizer brushes, unfortunately I didn't realize it until I had already opened the package. This is my sole complaint with this set. A quality control failure for sure, not only did the items get packaged improperly by the manufacturer, whoever picked the item for shipping overlooked it as well.

                    Hi there - you can use this either dry (it's soft enough) or I tend to like to wet it and use it with a bit of cleanser, which I then rinse off.

                    Thanks!
