We prefer to pack light (more room for souvenirs!), so we love that this primer evens complexion, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, provides sun protection, and preps skin for foundation, all in one carry-on-ready tube. The multitasking formula helps makeup stay put through a full day of sightseeing or has us looking snapshot-ready on its own. If only deciding what clothes to bring were this easy.
This stuff does what it's supposed to. It really does smooth out your complexion and give you a nice matte finish, so that your skin looks great whether you put make up over it or not. It feels great...so smooth and super light weight.
That being said, it straight up stinks, IMO. It has a very chemical-ish smell, which is only made more disturbing by the warning printed on the back of the tube: "Do not use on damaged or broken skin. Keep out of eyes. Stop use if irritation occurs. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help right away."
Yo Smashbox, what's going on my face that can't go in my face?!
this primer is so great I frequently don't even put on any foundation after applying it! the tint is just enough coverage and I love that it protects and improves the appearance of my skin. bought the full size of this one!5
I was pretty happy with this product. It makes my face smooth and helps makeup to go on more smoothly. My daughter likes it too.4
After using the original photo-finish primer for over a year, I decided to make the switch so that I'd have the added SPF. This primer goes on like silk and feels very light. It also increases the coverage of my bb cream, so I don't have to use as much. Added bonus: Birchbox sent me 3 Mighty Leaf tea pouches along with this purchase which was a nice surprise.5
I use primer in the warmer months so my make up stays on throughout the day. This product does the trick and does not make my skin greasy.4
I have tried the original Smashbox Primer before and loved it so decided to try this one. I also think it feels smooth and great like the original and love the added SPF protection.5
This is my favorite primer,love that it has SPF in it for my fair skin. My makeup looks great with this under it. Will purchase again!5
I really like this. It feels so good on my skin and I love the fact that I am getting extra sun protection. You really don't need a lot. I have been using this for a month and it looks like the tube is still full.5
I use this alone all the time, this product is absolutely great over clean skin in the morning. It is sort of like a gel, it goes on very smooth and I feel like it absorbs oil and keeps my skin looking matte and fresh all day. I bought the travel size to try it out (I never got a sample) because my old primer with SPF has been out of stock for a while and I don't regret the switch. Also, I have sensitive skin and have never had any irritation from this product.5
I have used Smashbox Photo Finish Primer with Dermaxyl Complex for over 4 years. My makeup stays put all day long without melting or absorbing into my very dry skin. That said, I have found that buying the travel size keeps the product fresher. The bigger tube will last FOREVER, and the product tends to get a bit funky after awhile. The travel size lasts me at least two months, and the product stays fresh. Recommend to anyone wanting to fight the signs of aging!5
