    i love the way the product feels. it had that invigorating minty feeling , with a coolness , but my skin was too sensitive for this . it inflamed myskin and it produced alot of flakely - ness. it started to burn and created a red ring aroung mouth.

      Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Hydrating Primer:

      I had never tried a primer before buying this one. My cosmetologist recommended a primer for me since I have been a long-time Obagi Skin System user and found my skin looking a bit 'dry' and weathered. I absolutely love this product and it has made a huge difference in the application of my foundation, as well as making my skin look healthier.

        It is starting to warm up here in Arizona, so my skin is getting dryer. This primer provides awesome hydration without making my face shiny or oily. Your skin will feel so good when you put it on.

                    My friend told me about this, and since I have a few large pores she recommended it. I bought it and love it. Pores are either gone or almost near gone.

                        That's exactly right! Apply this product to moisturized skin prior to foundation application. It is formulated for all skin types including sensitive skin.
