          Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer SPF 20 w/Dermaxyl Complex:

          During a visit to a local Ulta, my teenage daughter struck up a conversation with the Smashbox consultant and we ended up getting "made up" by her. Being in the upper 40's, she said this was a great primer for more mature skin. She did half my face with it, and I could see a difference already. I had never used primer before and pretty much had never heard of Smashbox. Needless to say I love this product and will continue to use it and buy it.

                Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer SPF 20 w/Dermaxyl Complex:

                A small, pea sized amount is all you need for coverage. A little goes a long way. It makes my skin feel smooth and is the perfect base for anything that I want to apply next. Somedays, I just throw on some blush and call it a day! I apply it over my moisturizer, and in this cold and biting weather, I really feel that my face is protected.

                Very runny & messy. Not impressed.

                I normally use the Smashbox (green)color corrector but it was out, so I tried this one. Nothing alike. This one is light, runny, messy. I will use this, but never buy it again. Only the green one from now on.

                I tried a sample of this and really liked it. Never used a primer before but makes my skin very soft and BB cream goes on nice afterward.
