LOVE IT

I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin and this is the ONLY primer that I have ever used (and I've tried a lot!) that doesn't make me break out. It feels great and works great too!

My favorite

I've tried many different primers over the years and always come back to this one! It is well worth the money. I'm constantly moving and my face can get really oily so I need something that will help set my makeup and this does the trick. Definitely recommend

Good Brand
Sampled

I do like this brand. I got this sample at a shop though so I was not too pleased to get in my sub box. It is an OK product.

A must have!

I was skeptical at first that it might make my skin oily or shiny, but instead it went on virtually dry and created a perfect base for foundation. I am definitely ordering a full size of this!

Worth the money!

This goes a long ways! It also feels awesome on your skin! I have oily skin and this does not make me break out! I use less foundation after using this product and it also makes my skin look so smooth!

It's just ok

I have used the product before and I wasn't impressed. I used it again to be fair to the product and I still think it is ok. I see no change in my make up.

Too much for my skin
Sampled

This went on nicely and helped my CC cream look smooth and by the afternoon it made my face feel greasy.

The Perfect Primer
Sampled

I would recommend this product to just about anyone. After applying foundation, skin looks flawless. It is very lightweight & does not weigh down my sometimes very oily skin. Smash box did an excellent job with this product & I will continue to buy the full size as long as it is available.
