Smash box does it again!
Sampled

I have used this product and many others from smash box for several years. It is great for locking in moisture and making your foundation last longer.
No noticeable scent which is always appreciated.

Not For Me
Sampled

I got this in my May box. I've tried this in the past and it did not work well for me. It billowed on my skin and did not provide a smooth surface.

Love it!!!
Sampled

I was so excited when I got this in my box! It has lived up to everything I thought it would be. It keeps my makeup on for a full 12+ hour day and doesn't make me shiny on my nose

Great for Summer
Sampled

I couldn't have gotten this product at a better time! As it's starting to heat up and get humid with summer just around the corner, I was thrilled to be able to try this primer. I enjoyed it, and will likely be buying it once I run out of my sample!

Really liked this product, but not sure the benefits are worth the added step in my routine or cost.

One of my holy grail products
Sampled

I received this in my Birchbox this month and was super excited even though I already own it. I don't use it everyday because it would get expensive but when I do, I feel like my foundation lasts so much longer and go on much more smoothly on my face. I loved getting this sample size which is great for traveling and having in my purse.

Good primer
Sampled

I like this primer-I already own it actually, but thanks for the spare! Moisturizes while reducing shine, however it doesn't keep shine away for the whole day I usually have to reapply pressed powder by the end of the day.
