SPF Yourself is a series of posts featuring products that contain a sunscreen, or SPF, in them. Not only sunscreens, but body lotions, facial moisturizers, eye creams, foundations, tinted moisturizers, bronzers, hair care and more will be featured. Only the best in beauty with SPF!
Touted as one of the best primers on the market, Smashbox has a few different blends of its Photofinish Foundation Primer. My favorite must be this one, Photofinish Foundation Primer SPF 15 with Dermaxyl Complex.
Yes, it sounds fancy, but what it really is, is a foundation primer with anti-aging in mind. With a built in SPF 15, which I think should be mandatory in primers, this one has Dermaxyl Complex. Dermaxyl Complex is an advanced peptide treatment that works to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles with continued use. Think of this as a primer, treatment and sunscreen in one. Nice!
This Photofinish smoothed out over my skin very easily. Do not let the slight pink tint scare you, as it blends away effortlessly. It feels a bit slippery at first, but this feeling quickly turn almost powder like - in the feeling that is. It simply creates a very smooth, beautiful canvas on which to apply makeup. I wait a few minutes before applying foundation to make sure it "does its job", which it does and then some. You will be impressed with the results - promise.
Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer SPF 15 with Dermaxyl Complex is available for $42.00 at Smashbox.com, Nordstrom, and Sephora and other fine beauty retailers.
