      Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer Pore Minimizing:

      Something no one told me about aging skin: your pores get bigger. I have bigger pores now than in my oily, acne'd youth! Add that to the problems of dryness, flaking and thinning skin plus incredibly reactive skin. Many pore minimizing products are also sebum control, and I just can't use them. Smashbox pore minimizing primer blurs my pores without dryness or irritation. Creates a smooth surface for foundation. If it wasn't so expensive, I would use it daily.

                It minimizes pores well. Works best if you pat over areas with large pores rather than rub. Helps my make up last long even during an intense workout keeps make up holding strong.
