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 for me

I don't wear makeup or any type of tinted creams, so this product was not for me. I gave it to my friend and she loooooves it. I guess it got a thumbs up.

This feels wonderful, made my skin so smooth, excellent primer for foundation or even a light Bb cream

A little goes a long way
Sampled

I wet my face and put this on as directed. It does have a bit of a smell to it. It's a light scent I think from the bleaching agent. I feel like it cleaned my face but not deeply and because of that I would not buy this product.

A nice pre-make-up primer
Sampled

I like this product, especially before I put on foundation. I don't know if it actually gives my skin a glow, but it does hydrate well and that helps make-up look more natural and even. I would definitely add this to my routine.

Love the consistency
Sampled

This is one of my favorite primers. The texture is thick enough that I feel like it smooths and plumps my skin, but it's not heavy or greasy.

my fave primer!
Sampled

I have tried many primers and I love this one! I find that it applies smoothly and prevents powder foundation from clumping and instead allows it to be applied evenly. The glow is an added bonus.

This is good stuff, I used it on the days when I was doing a light make up look, but still wanted sufficient coverage.
