A Look at Sacha Face Primer and Mattifier

     Hi, Its been awhile since I've done any serious posting but, a week ago I stopped off at Pennywise to get a few items one of which was the Sacha Face Primer Mattifier and I've been trying it out for approximately a week now with and without basic foundation and just thought that I would share my thought on this old/new repackaged and reformulated  product from Sacha.

So previously it was called the Sacha Mattifier (was also sold to me as a possible primer) and came in a smaller tube like jar with a doe foot applicator. Link
Now its available in a convenient squeeze type container with a screw cap which has been reformulated and contains more product and is officially named as a primer hence Sacha Face Primer Mattifier 

Its Purpose

A lightweight mattifier and face primer. Absorbs excess oils,smoothes skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and pores.
Apply over your entire face or T-zone
Can be worn alone or under foundation.
Dries invisible

Ingredients (previous): water, stearic acid, propylene glycol, zea mays,cyclomethicone, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, perfume, propyl paraben.

Ingredients (present)water, stearic acid, propylene glycol, aluminium starch octenylsuccinate, corn starch, triethanolamine, cyclomethicone, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Perfume, DMDM Hydantoin.

To me
  • It still has the light floral scent
  • has a creamy but slightly waxy texture
  • comes out white but melts/absorbs unto skin without residue
  • is lightweight so you don't get that "coated" feel like you have something on your face
  • still works well at controlling shine as its name implies 
  • you don't need much
Overall, I enjoyed using the product and had no breakouts...did not notice much difference with my pore size, but its readily available, and affordable
paid TT$44.95

Is available to online users on the SACHA web page for $30.00


  1. Hmmmnn. Didn't know Sacha made primers. Im only now getting into them since discovering that Milk of Magnesia is very high in alkaline and throws off the skin's ph balance so I no longer use it. I own one from Mary Kay but its kinda bleh to me. Ill check this out, too bad it does nothing for pores tho.

  2. Hi, sorry for the late response :/ , but yeah it works pretty well otherwise, so good luck and I hope it works for you.
