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.

Flawless

This primer is superb. I use this daily ads even after a sweat session at the gym my make up looks great. The oil free formula is a blessing for my sensitive skin and it blends in without looking wet or shiny on your skin.

Love

I love this primer. This sample has lasted me forever as well. It's not greasy and light weight. It really smoothes over any imperfections on my face. I love that birchbox incorporated a well known higher end brand too.

Still one of my faves

I have used DOZENS of face primers from smashbox and other various brands, and this one is still one of my favorites. It's very smooth and light, and keeps my skin fresh all day.

Absolutely love this primer!
Purchased

I generally didn't use a primer prior to receiving a sample of this in my birchbox. What a difference it makes! Skin looks so much smoother, softer and prevents make up from caking in your creases (even the tiniest creases as I have youthful skin). The days I forget to put in on under my make up I notice a huge difference in my finished makeup. This is definitely a winner.

Best primer around
Sampled

I have used quite a few foundation primers, but this one tops them all. It's lightweight and helps eliminate all the shine my necessary moisturizer induces. It feels like rubbing velvet on your face, and it holds your makeup in place all day. I squeezed every last drop out of my sample size.

Must have primer!
Sampled

I tend to get oily skin and this primer ensures that my makeup stays fresh and matte throughout the day--I can go up to 12 hours without needing any touch-ups!

Since receiving this product and trying it out, I have purchased this primer more than once for my collection. Although, I do have other primers, this is the one I am consistently reaching for and love the most!
