Perfect for oily skin I have oily/acne-prone sensitive skin. I have never used a foundation primer before as I thought it wasn't necessary/waste of money but after reading reviews and watching YouTube gurus rave about the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer I was convinced and decided to go out and buy it. It absorbs excess oil and leaves a nice smooth matte canvas for foundation. I have noticed a difference when wearing foundation with and without a primer. This primer helps foundation application look more smoother and extend the wear-time of my foundation. It's quite good at controlling shine. After foundation application my t-zone does get oily within an hour/hour and a half. With this primer it helps keep my face oil-free for at least 2/3 hours and then I would touch up. I would touch up 2-3 times during the day. Normally without primer I would touch up 4 times! Overall I think this is a good investment if you're looking for an oil-free foundation primer with added beneficial ingredients for your skin. I would definitely recommend. July 8, 2012
Fantastic for oily skin! I have used a lot of high end primers, however this is the only one I have actually managed to finish due to it being actually effective!! I have extremely oily skin, and a lot of open pores across my t-zone, and using this primer over clean moisturised skin, I have seen the pore size reduce considerably! Application of foundation is then seamless, and the finish is flawless! I then go throughout the whole day without actually needing a touch up! Fantastic product and with fairly regular use, the product has lasted me approx 6 months or so. Extremely happy with this product and so happy that have introduced it to their website!! July 17, 2012
Wow. I bought this a year ago to wear to prom and I am so glad I decided to get this product! I moisturised my face first, but let it sink well in, then applied this over the top and it is amazing! It leaves your skin with a velvety smooth feeling and I absolutely think this is one of the best primers available. It may be a little pricey, but if you want a primer that mattifies, smooths, and provides a gorgeous base for makeup, this is it! The only thing I can say, is that after a year (haven't worn it everyday), it does have a rather unpleasant smell, but it still does what I've said above. The version I have though, is the pump, which I think will be better than the tube as you will probably use less, so if you can find the pump, get that instead. July 20, 2012
