Still one of my faves
Sampled

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!

This primer is amazing. Lightweight and keeps my makeup on all day. Works great. I usually purchase this on a regular basis (the full size) So I was happy to get the sample size to take when I travel. Also, the sample size was great!

love, love, love this

I had never used primer before this. My face felt silky smooth, my foundation looked even and smooth. My makeup lasted all day. I will for sure purchase the full size of this product

Awesome surprise
Purchased

Lightweight primer that glides on. Can't believe I never used a primer before but just a small amount makes my foundation easier to apply, it looks better and lasts a full day.

Can't live without
Purchased

I thought all I ever needed was a good moisturizer, but I tried a sample of this and the difference is night and day. I love it! I ran out and my makeup didn't even look the same, my skin didn't feel soft anymore. Love this primer!

Love this product...probably the best I've tried. Will definitely purchase again. Makeup stays on longer and looks great too! It is light and doesn't feel heavy on your skin
