Most primer I feel like is targeted to people with oily skin and is all about sucking up the oil before you put on your foundation. I've always had dry skin, so finding the perfect primer has always been difficult. I've tried the classic primer from Smashbox before, which I love, but this primer is definitely better for me when I have drier skin. I would highly recommend this product to others with dry skin!
Not my favorite
I received the smashbox photo finish in one of my boxes and loved it! I tend to have dry skin from sun exposure so thought I would try the hydrating photo finish instead...not the best. I definitely prefer the sample I receive better it seemed to do the job better and leave my skin so soft. Don't feel the hydrating primer is worth it.
It is so soft and smooth! It makes your skin feel so nice! I love I how hydrating it is!!
Great product, but I don't love the smell
This is a great product, and I still purchase it even though I don't love the smell. I have oily skin, and it is a wonderful, lightweight primer that works great without getting too heavy. However, the smell is not great. It has almost a moldy smell.
Bought this because all the bb creams I have would come out cakey and patchy after awhile. And this really seemed to do the trick for me. Love how it feels like a lotion rather than some other primers which I found were to thick and creamy.
