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

    This stuff goes on like a silky, creamy powder and feels heavenly .. I use it together with one of Smashboxes BB creams, and the two together are usually all I ever use. All of the Photo Finish products are lovely, but this pale pink version is my favorite. I have often used it solo or with just a light mineral powder over the top of it, but my favorite application is to blend it together with the medium Camera Ready BB Cream.

            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.

              Application of this product is very easy, leaving your facing feeling smooth and silky - creating (as you'd expect of a primer) the perfect base for foundation.

                  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.
