                I use this product every day. I normally buy the regular one because it works just fine and then I apply my preferred foundation but this product makes my face look just the same. In fact, my face is smoother now than when I used to apply my preferred foundation

                            Yes, all of Smashbox's Photo Finish formulas help to lessen the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores! This primer has the added benefit of neutralizing discoloration with its apricot tint. :-)

                          My skin is red on my cheeks, chin and under my chin. Will this reduce the redness? Also, makeup never stays on my skin. Will this help this as well?
