  • "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

Best primer ever if you have dry skin like me. I use it also to mix in with foundation to thin out matte formulas. It’s amazing but I do go through it pretty fast

I have more oily skin but I still love this primer. It’s lightweight but still very hydrating. It leaves the skin slightly tacky so makeup adheres beautifully. My makeup looks fresh all day long when I use this.

Great hydrating primer. I use it when I want to dual prime as I have combo skin. I use it on the perimeter of my face with a pore filling primer in the center. Smashbox just does primers so well! Worth the money

Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2!! this is a new primer AND moisturizer in one! The product has a lightweight feel to it, almost like water. Your skin soaks it right up! It definitely adds a light moisture to my oily/ combo skin, AND also dries down a tad bit tacky so that your makeup can stick to it and not move! I got mine from HSN. com for $42, but you can also get it at ulta, sephora, and smashbox right now! It's really nice to have this skincare item combine moisturizer and primer in one and actually work!! My makeup will last for hours after using this, and my skin stays healthy looking!

This primer applies very smoothly and easily! I think it does a great job filling my pores and leaving me with a nice even base to apply my foundation. It’s great for my dry skin! I would purchase again!

So to start off - the packaging is beautiful and luxurious feeling. I love a good glass bottle with a pump. Secondly, this doesn't have a strong smell and doesn't really break me out. Thirdly, HELLO hydration! Not only is this a moisturizer, but it's a primer as well - the concept is SO relevant for the beauty industry right now, especially if you're minimalistic. I love this because it's two steps in one, and soaks into my skin nicely, feeling like I drank a glass of water! 
There are some cons: It can feel a tad too greasy if you apply too much. Also, it didn't break me out, BUT I do feel as though it clogs my pores. 
Cons aside, I would still recommend this product to anyone. Whether you're oily, dry, or combo, this works great for any season!

This is the BEST primer I have ever used. I received this in my Sephora Play Box as a sample and I fell in love. I had to buy more! I have combination oily/dry and acne prone skin. My nose and chin are always SO dry and usually look flakey when I put foundation on. But with this product it made my dry skin so smooth. It moisturized all the dry patches all day while wearing my make up and they were still moisturized after taking my make up off! It made my make up apply flawlessly. It was non greasy feeling and didn’t make my foundation look greasy either. It didn’t trigger my acne like most primers/moisture’s do. I am absolutely in love and I highly recommend!

So I ask a lot of my primers and this hits everything I look for . I have really dry skin and this keeps me nice and hydrated . I don't know if I would recommend it for oily skin but definitely dry. My makeup also last a really long time when I wear this . I'm a server and I always need to touch of my makeup half way through my doubles and I have noticed the need for touch ups is at a minimum. This is going to be something that I will re purchase all the time ! I highly recommend

I have never been a fan of Smashbox primers until this one. My skin is incredibly dry. I put this on after my moisturizer and my skin instantly feels hydrated. It does last for hours and you can see it! My skin looks so hydrated and nice all day long. It dries very quickly so you can apply your makeup right after. Your foundation will glide on so nicely and you'll have a glow all day.
