Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer Blemish Control
Banish blemishes! This perfecting primer treats breakouts, provides oil-free hydration and keeps skin clearer over time. Clinical testing showed women had clearer skin in just 2 weeks.
Availability: Smashbox counters at selected Woolworths stores nationwide.
What we say:
When it comes to my daily makeup routine, the most important product for me is a good quality primer. I have tested so many primers, yet I always go back to my trusted Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer.
I am lucky in that I seldom have really bad breakouts, but that being said I was still pretty excited to try out the new Photo Finish More Than Primer Blemish Control (why not add another to the long list tried!).
The newly launched primer has a gel like consistency and is slightly runnier than the original Photo Finish primer but it still blends into the skin like an absolute dream. During the warmer summer months my skin can get a tad oily during the course of the day. While the original primer keeps my foundation in place for the whole day, the new Blemish Control primer didn’t last quite as long and as a result I have to touch up with some translucent powder.
I cannot confirm if the ‘blemish control’ aspects of the primer will live up to their name, but I can certainly recommend this primer if you are looking for a medium hold primer that will smooth out your complexion providing the perfect canvas for foundation application. As this primer is breathable (it doesn’t clog your pores), I would recommend it to girls who have sensitive acne prone skin.
