Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light ~ Review

Posted in , , ,
Everyone loves normal problem-free skin!
Mine gets really oily in the summers and dry/combination in winters, so i always looks for products that actually are oil absorbing..because even in winters, if a apply foundation or moisturizers my T-zone becomes oily after an hour or two :(

Lets see how the smashbox photo finish primer worked :)

My Experience

Squeezy Tube, for all those hygiene conscious people out there!
 This primers is specifically for oily skin girls..its a light formula, feels like nothing on your skin..and it does smooths out the skin by softening the appearance of pores and lines

I normally don't apply foundation everyday, but whenever i do..even in winters, it starts feeling greasy as time passes!
This primer actually helped in absorbing the oils from my skin, and my foundation stayed fresh for long :)

You don't have to wear it only under your foundation, it can be worn alone aswell :)

I like the fact it has no SPF in it, just because whenever you're going in weddings or parties where pictures will be taken..the SPF makes you look like a ghost, seriously!
So, i stay away from SPF foundations and primers..which is a personal preference

I haven't used this in summers, so i can't comment on how it would react with oily skin..maybe i will update this post later in summers for that :)

You can see it looks white, but actually goes on transparent when you rub it onto your skin!
It creates a nice smooth texture for your foundation to glide on effortlessly
my skin is acne-prone..but i didn't have any break-outs with this :)

Overall, im loving this primer..its really light and does soften the lines and pores of my skin..and the best parts is that it controls the oiliness of my skin :)
