GR Test Drive: Blithe’s New Makeup-Priming Skincare Line InBetween

Blithe InBetween Hydro Priming Cream, Tone Correcting Cream, Instant Glowing Cream (Shown left to right)

Rule number one of Snapchat filter-worthy makeup: Start with perfectly-prepped, hydrated skin. Our newest secret to making that happen? Blithe’s new InBetween line that serves up makeup-priming ingredients in great-for-skin formulations to brighten, treat, and protect all at the same time. The category-bending lineup—including a pollution-defending essence (which also helps makeup wash off more easily!) and three finishing creams—creates a smooth, even surface for foundation while locking in moisture and nutrients into the skin.

Not sure which cream is right for you? If you’re prone to dry patches and flakiness, the Hydro Priming Cream will help hydrate and smooth. Looking to even out your overall skin tone? Try the Tone Correcting Cream that minimizes redness and dark spots for a soft-focus finish. To amp up glow, choose the Instant Glowing Cream, which uses light-reflecting particles to blur imperfections. But don’t take our word for it. Let these dramatic results, shown on three Glow Recipe team members, speak for themselves:

“When I first smoothed on the Tone Correcting Cream, I didn’t notice much of a difference. But once I started applying my foundation, I was shocked by how smoothly and evenly it went on. One swipe provides a silky and uniform base that I didn’t have to spend forever blending in my makeup—it just gave me an airbrushed finish with zero effort and got rid of any blotchiness, too. The finish is more on the matte side, but that helped keep my slightly oily/combination skin shine-free till cocktail hour. If you want a velvety, even complexion, this is the cream for you.”

Roz, marketing intern

“The Instant Glowing Cream may seem like regular old moisturizer in the jar, but spread it on and you’ll notice it has the faintest hint of pink. It instantly transformed my dull, tired skin into plump, glowy (not shimmery) perfection. And despite layering on a thick cream foundation (which blended in like a dream, btw), heavy-duty concealer, and setting powder, my skin still looked luminous and radiant. Surprisingly, even with all that glow, my foundation magically managed to stay smooth and crease-free for hours. I’m hooked!”

Cathy, content and social media manager

“I’m used to a more watery essence, so I was surprised by how the Makeup Prep Essence glided on like a gel, but instantly morphed into a grippy texture reminiscent of the J.One Jelly Pack. It’s formulated to create a thin, weightless film on the surface of the skin to help block out pollutants and make your foundation stick better. The texture of the Hydro Priming Cream was really unique. Living up to its elastic-gel description, it scooped and spread like a creamy mousse, but melted into skin like a silky lotion. When layered on top of the essence, I loved how dewy and hydrated my skin felt and looked. Usually the slightest drop of foundation reveals the dry patches around my forehead and nose, but after using this smoothing duo they were nowhere in sight!”
