jane iredale Smooth Affair® Facial Primer & Brightener

The secret to the “no makeup” look often involves, well, a lot of makeup. But thanks to this one-and-done multitasking primer, our days of layering product over product are over. Packed with ultranourishing ingredients (think: grapefruit, apple, and antioxidant white tea) as well as soothing royal jelly, this lightweight primer doesn’t just love your skin—it adores it. Beyond smoothing your complexion and minimizing the look of pores and wrinkles, it also provides intense hydration and anti-aging benefits, leaving skin naturally luminous. If you’re going for a more dramatic evening look, it creates a smooth canvas to help makeup apply more evenly and last longer.

Not effective

I received a sample of this product with purchase. Did not really work well for me. It did not feel like it absorbed well into my skin and left me feeling greasy all day. Could not really tell that it did anything to improve the staying power of my makeup. I have had better results with other brands. Just not right for my skin type.

was not amazed
Sampled

For me this just seemed like a good mosturizer, but I did not see it working as a primer for me. I just didn't see anything amazing or special about this product for my skin.

I don't like primers and this one is no different. I do not want to add more steps to my beauty routine

It's ok

I don't really like having stuff on my face. This would not be for me. I like that I got to try it though I don't think I would buy in the future

Sticky on my face
Sampled

This product was terrible! It didn't go on smoothly at all, which I thought was part of the point of a primer, and it made my face feel sticky. Not for me.

primer
Sampled

I was very excited to get a primer this month. however I was not happy with this one at all. it is more like a gooey lotion. it has no smell and I would not recommend this product for the price at all.

Lacked hydration...
Sampled

This product did not seem to add any extra hydration to my face and actually caused my face to break out. I would suggest if you have sensitive skin to avoid this product.

Smells good but not for me
Sampled

Nice smell - light and citrus-y. After that...not so sure it was good for me. My skin was very oily after using it.

Just not a product for me.. I don't need or use primer. But, if it was for me maybe I would have a better review also it was sticky to me.
