Primer + moisturizer in one! It delivers 24-hour hydration plus powerful primer benefits in the lightest possible texture.

Primerizer instantly increases moisture by 127% and preps skin for makeup in one step. The non-greasy, quick-dry formula sets in seconds, acting as a makeup magnet that locks on foundation and makes it last. It plumps and moisturizes with niacinamide (which improves skin's vitality and barrier repair) and hyaluronic acid (a molecule that holds water within the skin to prevent moisture loss). Primerizer also smoothes skin, softens dry fine lines and stops makeup from settling into pores.

In a consumer study, after 1 use:
  • 97% said it feels lightweight
  • 87% said skin felt instantly hydrated
  • 91% said their makeup went on flawlessly

In a consumer study, after 1 week of use:
  • 90% said it delivered a high level of hydration
  • 88% said it helped makeup look good
  • 88% said it helped makeup last all day
  • 89% said their skin felt hydrated throughout the day

              I have dry, acne scarred skin. It's been difficult to find a primer that creates a healthy and glowy look to my skin without bringing more attention to my flaws. This primer makes all my foundations look more natural.

              Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer:

              I added this to my daily skin care like any other primer and it did not work with my skin type. I have very oily skin and I'm usually shiny by noon and this just made the problem worse. Great if your skin needs some love cause it provides a stickier surface and really holds your make up in place. But I would not recommend it to anyone with slightly oilier skin.

                          Hi There! The Photo Finish Primerizer will not counteract your moisturizer. You may continue using your current moisturizer before applying Primerizer.
