          I love this product, but it's my splurge, because it's a little pricey. It's the closest thing I've found to the fountain of youth.

          This didn't provide the level of coverage I was looking for, but it didn't make my sensitive skin breakout, either. I still prefer Younique's facial primer.

          Not Worth the Price

          By Lady

          from Los Angeles

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

          Only giving this 2 stars because it does help foundation apply smoother and last longer than without any primer - but all primers do that much. Too expensive to not achieve the results you expect. Misleading description. "Protect" only means it has an spf but not enough. The standard is at least 30 so your moisturizer, bb cream, or foundation should also have spf. "Correct"? NOT. Moisturizing? No. It feels moisturizing when applied but quickly dries down to a matte finish and settles into lines :( I had opened and used a few different ways to try and make this work for me but was not successful and couldn't return. 2 bargain brands I've also used (Ulta Fabulous Face and Maybelline Age Rewind) work MUCH better! If you have dry/mature skin and lines you'd like to smooth before you apply your foundation, this isn't the product you want.

                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.

                Use this daily under my makeup. Living in Texas it is a great layer for protection from sun damage.
