Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer Blemish Control

I have tried and loved the Photo Finish Light primer by Smashbox, so when they released a Blemish Control primer I had to try it.

As well as prolonging the wear time of your makeup, this primer promises to treat breakouts, provide oil free hydration and keep skin clearer over time.

I have had this primer for quite a while now, in order to give a fair opinion before I reviewed it. 


I love how this primer feels on my skin, its not at all siliconey (nothing like Maybelline Baby Skin) and feels almost like a moisturiser when you apply it. Great for oily skin.

There is a noticeable difference in how long my foundation and face makeup last when I use this. Its 11.30pm now and I have just removed my makeup, my foundation still looked good, there was some shine but it was still on my face.


Does absolutely nothing in the way of blemish control. While I didn't expect this to stop breakouts, I thought there may be some difference but no, I can honestly say I have noticed absolutely nothing.

Overall this is a wonderful primer and I would recommend it, but don't expect it to control your blemishes in anyway shape or form! 

Available from Boots £28.00


  1. This was on my wishlist, but no longer! Thanks for saving me £28! haha.

    1. Glad I could be of some help :) it's a shame because it is a really good primer but just does not live up to its claims!
