    Smashbox photo finish hydrating primer is fantastic for dry skin . In the past 8 months or so my skin has gotten so dry . It used to be fairly normal so I was having a hard time dealing with it . My Makeup would cake in the dry spots and it wouldn't look good . Then I remembered I purchased the 4 sample pack of smasbox primers . So I tried the hydrating one. I used a small amount and gently massaged into my face . Instantly i could feel my face super hydrated . My Makup went on flawlessly afterwards and it didn't look cakey at all . It lasted all day too which was great . I would recommend this to anyone with dry skin .

    This primer is ok in my opinion. It feels nice on the skin and I would say it is hydrating. I'm not sure though if it really makes much of a difference in terms of making my makeup last longer. Although it feels nice, I would say I could get the same very from a nice light moisturizer. Overall I think this is a bit overpriced, ($50) for one tube). I won't be repurchasing this product.

    This primer is easily the best primer that I have ever used. I have dry skin, and this provides the extra hydration that my skin needs before foundation and powder, etc. When I use it, my skin looks extra smooth and not dry at all! The only thing I could complain about would be that it is so expensive, but definitely work every cent! I use it daily.

    This is my go to primer! I have incredibly dry skin. This primer leaves my skin feeling hydrated, and my makeup still looks beautiful and fresh at the end of the day. If I forget to use this product, my skin always looks splotchy and sooo dry by the time the day is over. This product makes all the difference and I honestly can't live without it. For extra hydration in the winter, I apply the photo finish oil underneath this primer. Beautiful product!

    Received a trial size of this a couple of months ago, and absolutely loved it, and went and bought a full size bottle, it's keeps my makeup looking great, minimizes my pores, and even helps with moisture on my face as I have dry skin! I would sudjest this to anyone looking for a primer!

    I love the way this primer goes onto my skin. the consistency of it is next level amazing. it makes your makeup stay in place longer. the only downside is the relatively small size and price

    I love this primer, it's changed my life!! I have dehydrated skin and this helps my skin feel so hydrated and makes makeup application flawless! Buy the travel size, you get more value for your money to product then buying full size :)

    Good product and does help with keeping makeup on longer. The price is a tad on the expensive side. I still continue to purchase as it does do the job.

    I use this everyday. It's refreshing and it holds my foundation for the whole day very well. I got two bottles from Sephora and there's alot of product in it. You won't go through it fast guaranteed. The Smashbox photo finish primer water is very hydrating and smells like hair spray or a general spray. I feel fantastic and this product sets my makeup well.

    I have dry skin and have been using the Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer for over a year now. True to it's name, the primer keeps my skin hydrated for the whole day, and helps my foundation go on smoothly. It is very lightweight, and helps prevent the "cakey" look. It also really helps keep your make-up intact; I've accidentally taken a hot shower without removing my make-up first, and it stayed on all through it. However, the makeup comes off very easily with make-up remover or a wipe. It does lie a little on the pricier side, but a little goes a long way with the product, and you only need a pea-sized amount for your entire face, which means the tube lasts me an extended period of time.
    Overall, this is by far my favourite primer and I use it on an almost-daily basis.
