Primer + moisturizer in one! It delivers 24-hour hydration plus powerful primer benefits in the lightest possible texture.

Primerizer instantly increases moisture by 127% and preps skin for makeup in one step. The non-greasy, quick-dry formula sets in seconds, acting as a makeup magnet that locks on foundation and makes it last. It plumps and moisturizes with niacinamide (which improves skin's vitality and barrier repair) and hyaluronic acid (a molecule that holds water within the skin to prevent moisture loss). Primerizer also smoothes skin, softens dry fine lines and stops makeup from settling into pores.

In a consumer study, after 1 use:
  • 97% said it feels lightweight
  • 87% said skin felt instantly hydrated
  • 91% said their makeup went on flawlessly

Better as a moisturizer

By Bails93

from Maryland

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Absorbs Quickly
  • Moisturizes Well

Cons

  • Not Long-Lasting

Best Uses

  • Dryness

Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer:

I break out easily with normal primers, so this seemed worth a try. I like how moisturizing it was, how quickly it absorbed, and how light it felt on my skin, however it didn't work for me as a primer. After just a couple hours I noticed my foundation would get patchy and settle in creases around my chin, nose, and eyes pretty badly.

      Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer:

      I use the basics on my face. My Skin is very sensitive, if I use too much of something I usually break out. I'm very hesitant on trying something new because breakouts are not worth it.
      I have been using this for two weeks now and no breakouts, My skin feels fabulous, and the make up goes on flawless. Not oily, not dry. One product with multiple use.... moisturizer and primer.

        Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer:

        Obsessed with this product! I have pretty dry skin and have noticed my makeup just applies and looks better when I use a hydrating primer. This is actually the most hydrating primer I have ever used. It says you can use it as your primer and moisturizer, but I still use my regular moisturizer along with this primer and I absolutely love it!!!

                        I have dry, acne scarred skin. It's been difficult to find a primer that creates a healthy and glowy look to my skin without bringing more attention to my flaws. This primer makes all my foundations look more natural.

                            Hi There! The Photo Finish Primerizer will not counteract your moisturizer. You may continue using your current moisturizer before applying Primerizer.
