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.

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.

Beautiful glow!

I loved this primer for summer and fall. It gives a beautiful glow to your skin even under makeup! It's non-greasy feel was perfect and I would recommend this for any skin type!

This is not a product that I would use. Therefore, I gave it to my daughter to use and she said it was pretty good.
