      • Taking Away Redness

      Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Adjust:

      I was recently diagnosed with rosacea. While the cream the dermatologist has given me helps reduce the red in my skin it doesn't eliminate it. I also do not like to wear heavy makeup. I decided to try this out to see if it will help. It is amazing! It really helped to reduce the red in my face. My complexion we then able to look even in tone after applying my foundation. I really cannot tell you how wonderful this product is.

        it looks greener in the tube,i thought it would cover more redness in my cheeks. also it doesn't have the same luxurious feel as the Smashbox original.

          I used it to reduce redness, which was the intended purpose of the makeup, but no matter how much I used or how I applied it (fingers/makeup brush) it made a barely noticible difference.

              This neutralizes the redness in my cheeks wonderfully. I have rosacea and if there's a distinct temperature change my face turns blood red to the point people think I'm sick. This stuff makes me feel so much more confident and I feel like it has been very gentle on my skin.

                  Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Adjust:

                  This product is wonderful for my blotchy red, oily skin, & it even helps to minimize my huge pores. It is lightweight & feels so smooth & silky on my face & it helps my makeup last & helps control the shine I always get due to my very oily skin.Every once in awhile I'll put on my foundation/bb cream & then realize that I had forgotten my primer & my skin will look red & oily all day & makeup melts off. I have tried several other primers (some green tinted, some not) but I always go back to this one. My skin is acne prone & this primer did NOT break me out. I highly recommend!

                  FYI Before you buy this though keep in mind that this tube is $39 for 1oz but the travel size tube is $15 for .5oz, so save yourself some money & get 2 travel sizes instead of 1 full size

                        I am wicked red throughout my cheeks, nose and chin... love heredity! I put this on before the Smashbox liquid foundation. Trick.. give it a minute or two before you put on the foundation...tends to work a little bit better. I have been using over 2 years..happy!

                          Can I use this product by itself? I just have redness on my face, so can I use it by itself or do I need a bb cream/foundation over it?

                          I have oily skin. I'm worried that this product will be too greasy if I use it with my light moisturizer. Should I wear it with moisturizer or alone? Does it leave skin greasy feeling?
