          Pretty amazing cream. The minute you rub it on it blends in and dries making your skin extremely soft and smooth as well as dry. No oil. I use it as a base just in my t zones before I add my other makeup. Very happy with this. Got the small sample size.

              Would not recommend the product due to the fact that it did not fill my pores as expected

              Easy to apply yet flaky after application

                I had yet to find a primer that really worked for my oily skin. I had tried 3-4 different primers, and finally decided to splurge a little and try smashbox. SO worth it! I can go basically ALL day without my face becoming an oily mess.

                So I bought this because I am a sucker for all things that fill in my pores... It works just as well many other pore perfecting primers that I have used.

                  I have oily skin. I use this after cleansing and before applying my makeup. I dab a small amount on my oil spots...forehead, nose and chin. My face stays oil free all day and makeup lasts all day. Perfect for oily skin.
