  • "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 absolutely love this primer! My skin stays hydrated and it makes my skin super moisturized and my foundation looks amazing with it! So glad I took this leap with this one! Highly recommend for combination skin! I am more on the dry side and never have dry patches with this!

This primer is so hydrating and perfect for my dry skin! I’m not sure how it would work with oily skin, but it’s perfect for dry. I haven’t noticed it making my foundation last any longer, but it definitely makes my skin look healthy and glowing.

I got a sample of this and really love it! It covers your moisturizer and primer in one so if you are someone that is in a hurry this is a great product for you! The moisturizer is good too...but if your skin is really dry I think you would need some extra moisturizer.

I got a sample of this to test out for a few days and I must say, I really loved this, I have normal to dry skin so this really helped prep my skin and moisturize it. Totally lives upto to its name! Might invest in this sometime

This Primer is so good 👍 I would buy it over and over. It helps hide your pores very well. The first time I tried it I thought it was a very high-end brand, but I later found out that the primer is around twenty dollars!

I'm not a huge fan of Smashbox's primers but this works very well on my clients. This is especially great for those who don't feel like doing a ton of steps in their routine but know they need to pay more attention to skincare

Smashbox has done it again with another great primer! It has a lotion-like feel to it, but it really does help with moisturization and longevity of my makeup. My skin is sensitive, as well, and I haven't had any issues! Love this!

Great primer and moisturizer in one! Great for the "on the go" girl who needs to hydrate and prime without the extra time! Works great with most foundations. Price is on the middle/high end ($42?). Would highly recommend!

I love this! Finally some more big name brands are incorporating skin care ingredients into their cosmetics!! The hyaluronic acid in this serum-like primer makes this incredible for all skin types, but especially dry skin.

I received a sample of this product in my Sephora play monthly subscription, and I absolutely love it, though I don't think I will be purchasing the full size because of the price, but if you don't mind the price and I say definitely grab this primer
