Claims: Primer & Moisturizer | 24 Hour Hydration | Non-Greasy | Quick Drying | Weightless | Cruelty Free | Vegan
Size: 1 oz. or 30 mL
A few years back the Smashbox Primerizer was released. I purchased it as soon as it was released to be able to review it for you, however, right after that was when Norbie (the bearded dragon) passed away so I decided to take a break and when I came back it wasn’t new anymore so I decided to skip it. Since this year I’m reviewing products that may not be new but are new to me I decided to review the Smashbox Primerizer since I got it in a Sephora Favorites set and hadn’t actually used the original one I purchased. If you want to know my thoughts on the Smashbox Primerizer check out the video below or just keep scrolling!
About Smashbox Primerizer
The full-size Smashbox Primerizer comes in a 1 oz. glass bottle with a plastic pump top and retails for $42.00 and can be found at places your purchase beauty products like Sephora, Ulta, Birchbox, Nordstrom, and Macy’s; at home-shopping sites like HSN and QVC; and at Smashbox itself. The travel-size 0.5 oz or 15 mL that I received in the Sephora Favorites set is also purchasable at several of those retailers.
Smashbox claims that the Smashbox Primerizer is a primer and moisturizer that provides 24-hour hydration and instantly increases moisture upon use, this is of course done via hyaluronic acid. The Smashbox Primerizer is also supposed to be non-greasy, quick drying, weightless, and suitable for all skin types. The priming part of it is supposed to smooth skin, soften fine line, and stop makeup from settling into the pores. This is probably done by the dimethicone that is the third ingredient in the Smashbox Primerizer Here are the other ingredients:
Water\Aqua\Eau, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Isopropyl Isostearate, PPG-15 Stearyl Ether, Niacinamide, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Sodium Polyaspartate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Algae Extract, Caffeine, Trehalose, Sorbitol, Decyl Glucoside, Xanthan Gum, 1,2-Hexanediol, Propanediol, Sodium Hydroxide, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol
Smashbox Primerizer Review
As I mentioned at the beginning, I had previously purchased the full-size of the Smashbox Primerizer and I received the travel size in the Sephora Favorites kit. We’re going to go over the moisturizer aspect of this primer first. Also, as I mentioned, the moisturizer aspect is supposed to provide instant hydration when you apply it and 24-hour hydration as you wear it via hyaluronic acid in the product. If you have normal or normal combination skin then this would probably be the case for you. However, if you are someone who has dry skin this will not be the case for you. You’re going to want to use your regular moisturizer as normal and then apply this. I will say that I did get a little bit of a boost of hydration when I first applied it which meant that my makeup went on better than usual AND using this as like a double moisturizer worked really well.
Now let’s move onto the primer aspect of the Smashbox Primerizer. For priming this is supposed to be weightless, smooth the skin, soften fine lines, and stop makeup from settling into the pores. I found this all to be the case. I actually found this to be one of my FAVORITE primers at the moment due to how well the Smashbox Primerizer did those things.
