  • "this is a good primer for all types of skin. i have very oily skin and it still is good for under my makeup or on it's own on no makeup days. only down fall is it doesn't do anything for my pores so i have to go in for another primer in my t zone but still good for what it claims although it is a bit pricey." in 54 reviews
  • "very watery texture so it feels light on the skin. absorbs really quickly and makeup application is smooth. i put on a lot of moisturizer before priming so i’m not sure if this is hydrating my skin but it isn’t leaving any dry patches. i got this as a sample and may repurchase when it runs out." in 50 reviews

I’ve never been a fan of Smashbox primers, I don’t think that any of them were suitable for MY skin type and MY skin concerns... but this one has blown me away. It’s super hydrating which all skin types always need regardless if you’re oily or not. Added hydration will help with oil combat so it doesn’t need to produce as much. It lays great under makeup too!

Can not fault this ! I have oily/combo skin and thought that it would be too heavy or dewy but actually leaves my skin so comfortable and hydrated but not heavy at all. Just gives a nice uniform texture to the skin. I skip moisturiser and put this on right after cleansing and toning and then apply foundation. Definitely worth a try !

j'ai trop aimer ce produit ,il  s’applique en toile de fond sous votre fond de teint, lissant de façon express aspérités et ridules, qui retiennent habituellement la matière. Son film ultra light, mi aimant mi bouclier, fixe également le make-up tout en empêchant la peau de l’absorber.

This primer feels so nice on the skin and leaves such a beautiful Finnish. It really helps the foundation, creams and powders stick to the skin. Making your make up look so smooth! I rave about this product all the time! It is really worth a try and is so worth the money!

I really do like this primer. It worked nicely on my normal to dry skin. Although I will come back and update if I ever do get brave enough to use it without a moisturizer. I am sure it would be totally fine in your 20’s or 30’s if maybe your skin isn’t too dry. Like I said I’m not 💯 as I’ve been to chicken to skip my moisturizer yet! (I’m a tiny bit older than 20 😉) But it kept my makeup on, even through hot yoga! 🧘🏼‍♀️

So you know, I’m a total facial mist h0r. I love them. I use them in the Summer after my shower to refresh my face and add moisture, I use at night prior to my skincare regime, I use them in the Winter before any skincare or makeup to allow my skincare to absorb more easily…! I love them!

As a primer this one is the bomb! Keeps skin feeling fresh and luminous and has worked with every foundation I’ve used. Doesn’t help with texture but will make your skin fresh, hydrated and beautiful all day. Great for a really dry skin!

Este producto me encanta, aunque no lo he probado hay muchos comentarios sobre el y dicen que hasta es tan bueno como. El pre-primer de Mac cosmétics, hidrata la piel, no deja que penetrante el maquillaje en los poros de la piel, por lo tanto hace que dure muy más! Además que adoro esta marca, una de las mejores del mercado

I really enjoyed using this product as it left a clean and smooth finish on the skin. It blended really nicely as did it apply. It leave a matte finish which would be good for matte foundation. I would definitely buy this product again.
