No matter the scenario, we still want to look good for our next impromptu photo op. This award-winning primer helps foundation go on smoothly and last all day since it minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines. With the help of antioxidant-rich ingredients like vitamins A and E, green tea, and grapeseed extract, it also smooths and protects skin so you can even wear it alone without makeup. Best of all, the lightweight, oil-free formula absorbs quickly, so you can move on to the rest of your routine without skipping a beat.

Too much for my skin

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.

It's okay
Purchased

I personally liked this product at first, but by the time I was done using it, I felt like it wasn't that effective. I feel like this product is a great primer, but not perfect.

Really smooth

This is the first primer I've used and I really like it. It smooths out my skin and hides pores and lines really well without making my skin super heavy. The only downside is by the end of the day my skins pretty oily but it usually is so I don't full blame the primer for that.

It's good, but not great.
Purchased

Not sure this primer lives up to the hype. I think it does make my pores look smaller, but it's definitely not a HG product for me. I feel like my foundation could do without it as well, but it's nothing to write home about.

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.

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.
