Most Helpful Positive Review Do yourself a favor and TRY THIS
The Mindful 5 Nourishing Face Primer is one of the best primers I've ever used, it does everything in one application: replenish your skin with deep Hydration, blurs pores, preps for moisturizers and makeup, makes your Foundation looks smoother, has long-wearing effect and even doubles as a night serum. I live for their ingredients and innovative formula that works for every skin type and delivers effective results naturally, without the need of harsh chemicals. I wish you could see how insanely beautiful my makeup looked at 3 a.m. even after a long shift and the best thing is that I didn't even used setting powder nor sprays. ( I took this picture approximately 10hrs after makeup application) I couldn't believe it myself when I looked at the mirror and there were not creases at all and my pores were still almost undetectable. Plus it gave me the most beautiful glow and my skin felt moisturized even after removing all my makeup. I don't have words to describe how much I love this primer... My skin has improved considerably since I started using this product and all my coworkers, fellow Makeup Artists, friends and clients are constantly asking me if I'm using a different Foundation or have had facials, but no, it's just my new favorite primer.
And just so I can help you-
Details FYI: I have combination to oily skin with little dark spots caused by acne scars, dryness around my eyes, cheeks and forehead, plus visible enlarged pores around my nose area.

Mindful 5- Nourishing Face Primer Serum:
The serum comes in a small regular fading pink and black box that is big enough to hold a 1 fl. Oz bottle. When unboxing the serum, out comes a bottle filled with this green liquid. I'm guessing of course because the number one ingredient is cannabis sativa hemp seed oil. Other main ingredients are primer oil complex, red algae, green tea, prebiotic, and a bunch of really long scientific words. The product is suppose to moisturize all day, prime and prep, add radiance, refresh, and nourish your face according to what's printed on the box. I agree for the most part. I followed the directions two drops to my skin every morning although I do not wear make-up. The first three days were great. My face felt amazing and soft. But by day four my face began to break out. All over in a what appeared to be a rash. Shortly after that my face began to swell. I stopped using it. I'm not sure why my face did that but it has been that way since I stopped using it. I'm sure anyone would love it. I would have if I didn't have a bad reaction.

I purchased this from Smashbox directly because it was on sale, but I'd never heard of it before. I know I have had good luck with all of their other primers so I thought why not. For reference I have combo oily skin with an oilier t-zone in the summer. With having to wear the face mask now, parts of my face have gotten really dry, which is weird. This is a beautiful primer that works with any foundation I've paired it with and it just feels really nice on the skin. I like the packaging with the glass bottle and the dropper style dispenser that gives you just the right amount of product. I've been pairing this with their Primer Water for additional staying power, but I'm sure it would work fine on its own. If it's this good in the summer months in hot and humid Florida, I bet it'll be great in the winter too. Even though I purchased this for half off, I would pay full price when it comes time to restock because it's that good. And I usually don't buy anything unless it's on sale, if that tells you anything!
Since I tried this

Since I tried this primer I have not use any other primer I live how may foundations stays with this primer
My new favorite primer!
Brooke from Iowa
Wow, this stuff is amazing! I've never used an oil primer that dries so nicely and makes my skin feel fresh. I've started using this after my toner in my skincare regimen even if I'm not apply makeup afterwards because I love how it makes my face feel and look! Some people say it smells like gasoline, which I'd have to disagree. It has a distinct smell that only lasts a couple minutes and I mostly smell the green tea extract in it. Will continue purchasing!!
My skin loves this
ya19 from United States
My skin loves this serum, helps reduces the redness, smooths out the skin, and preps the skin for Makeup. I like to use it on no makeup days too! I love the Ingredients ❤️
marissap53 from Barrie
I love this product! I have redness so the green tint of this primer really helps even out my skin tone and cool my skin down. It has a nice soothing and cooling affect when you apply it. My makeup lasts longer and even enhances my foundation so I save on using too much of my foundation. Highly recommend!
safas6 from Jersey City
As I enter my mid 30s my skin has progressively become parched and drier,nothing can nourish it.This worked wonders for me!Will definitely buy again,a percent add to my routine!Loved it!
Smells like Gasoline
Moxster739 from Livermore, CA
Im a big fan of Smashbox primers but this particular product misses the mark. I used it once, the scent smells like gasoline and didn't blend well with my other skin care products. Will be returning.
Amazing primer with serum benefits
tamied from Medford, OR
I generally live all the smashbox products I've tried. They're photo finish used to be my favorite until I tried this one. It smooths my skin out and preps it for a super easy foundation application that lasts all day.
It was an interesting
aleeahs from Whitestone, NY
It was an interesting products at first but once you get down the amount that you're comfortable with I would say it leaves your face feeling nice
Heaven in a bottle
mairimr from Brownsville, TX
This product is amazing! It is absorbed almost instantly, no oily residue, makes my makeup last longer, reduces shine and makes my face super soft. I have acne prone skin and this product hasn't cause any breakouts yet. Scent is a little peculiar but nothing you can't get used to. I sometimes use it as a primer other times as a serum. 100% recommended, This product was complementary by Influenster
best product ever

This product is absolutely bomb and all of their products are amazing especially this one here! I fell in love after purchasing it, I already have another one coming in the mail!

Love this skin serum, it keeps the skin nice nourished, feeling smooth and clean. The smell is great highly recommended
mrsozzylovesmakeup from Annapolis, MD
I have struggled to find a primer that actually works for me. I am 42 and have redness, normal to dry skin, fine lines, and large pores in some areas. I tried this primer and I love it!!! You only need two drops and it totally works! It sinks very well into the skin and I find that the scent is pleasant. This is now my go-to primer!!!!
I loved this product!
smtroxell from Charlotte, NC
I loved this product! The mindful 5 combines cutting edge beauty trends with reliable results. The eye dropper is easy to use and I was able to apply a small amount that covered my entire face. The smell is pleasant and my makeup stayed on all night.
The serum is not
selmae from Mc Leansville, NC
The serum is not to heavy and not too sticky on the face. I personally use it after I do a face mask and then I apply moisturizer after a couple of minutes and then my face has a nice glow to it.

Smashbox The Mindful 5 Primer Serum
Smashbox Cosmetics Nourishing Face Primer Serum ☘️ Cannabis Sativa Hemp seed oil
☘️Primer oil complex
It's said to be a makeup/skincare hybrid each with 5 complimentary ingredients & 5 wellness benefits. I love that it is a serum that I can apply at anytime of the day just for added moisture. While it doubles as a primer that renews skin before makeup. Immediately after applying it'll leave a nice sticky base to work on top of. However, if left longer it won't leave that sticky residue behind. I cannot stand to feel sticky after moisturizer. You only require two drops, and makeup applies beautifully with it on. There is one con and it's a big one for most. The smell is very I'd say "earthy" others have described it alot more harshly lol. I have very sensitive skin and the scent didn't cause me to break out. That's all I care about as far as scents are concerned. Overall, a very pleasant experience and I am thankful to have been chosen. I see cannabis being Incorporated into beauty a lot lately. I trusted Smashbox would get it right.
Love this primer! Not
kacaya from Calabasas, CA
Love this primer! Not only does it have simple ingredients, but the ingredients are great for your skin! I have super sensitive skin and this has not given me any sort of reaction. It has a tacky feeling and helps my makeup stay on all day.
worth the money
allindsey92 from Collinsville, OK
So, I'm usually not much of a girl who notices a difference with most primers. I have actually noticed less texture after applying my foundation with this one. I'm dry and I feel like it's a good addition after applying lotion to the face! You need very little, so this will last a good amount of time. The glass dropper works great! The scent is initially strong, but is gone after drying. Although it has an awkward scent it's worth knowing that's because there's no added fragrance and that it's the natural ingredients. I say go grab a sample and you will notice a difference within a few uses!
melideeglam from Las Vegas, NV
This is honestly my new holy grail. I've been using it for more than a month and I'm more than halfway through the bottle!
I use it right before moisturizing, followed by the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer.
Besides it being great for smoothing out your face it is beneficial for your skin.
It has a very pleasant smell that's sweet and not overwhelming even though I have read reviews saying they hate it. I have tried it on various foundations and it performed the same with all making them last longer and be smoother.
It is an omega-rich primer serum that helps reduce redness and visible signs of irritation, moisturizes all day, helps skin feel smoother, preps for makeup, and helps balance the skin—scented with the oils and extracts of cucumber, chamomile, and fruit.

heyitsjuju from Hyattsville, MD
I loveee how this serum makes my skin feel so smooth and refreshed ! The glass bottle and drop were a perfect design. The only thing was the smell , which I'm not so against but if I had to pick any room for improvement that'd be it! Other than that it's still five stars for me for what it does to my face!
I looooove this serum
talinm1 from Philadelphia , PA
I looooove this serum si much. At first I was hesitant but in les than 3 days I could see the results. Another good thing about this is the price, high quality with low cost. The packaging is very appealing and I am obsessed with the texture.
Dry Skin Dream
kaseyt from Lexington, KY
I love this stuff. I have dry skin and this is amazing for dry patches. Not only do I use it under makeup, you can mix it in with foundation or even take a damo beauty blender and use it to set your makeup. It blends everything together and makes your skin look dewey and fresh.
lynnthuy from Laurel, MD
I love an oil primer! This went on so smooth and didn't feel greasy at all. My make up stayed and didn't become slick when I primed with this. When I didn't put any make up on, my skin had a nice glow. The only downside to this oil was the smell. Im not a fan of green tea and cannabis and those were the two ingredients that stood out. If you are sensitive to smell, I'd recommend staying away from this - though it fades away 10-15 mins after your skin soaks it up. Of course that time varies on your skin type and how much you use.
