Vitamins A&E: natural preservatives that also act as anti-inflammatory emollients to fight free radical damage and prevent premature signs of aging while brightening skin.

Product performance: This  hydrating base not only helps keep your makeup in place for up to 12 hours of perfect wear time, it's also a quick fix for tired or sallow skin—just one application gives the appearance of a healthy, youthful complexion. The lightweight texture is ideal for a base under foundation to wake-up your makeup but can also be worn alone as a treatment to counteract dullness. Whichever application you choose, skin is left smooth, feeling hydrated and looking flawless.

This primer leaves my skin feeling silky soft which is really amazing considering how dry and flaky it generally is. It smooths and brightens my complexion as well leaving me with a bit of a glow. I love the scent as well, a light citrus is one of my favorite smells, but at the same time it dissipates on dry down so that there isn't a cloying smell left behind. While it is a bit pricey, I find a little goes a long way for my skin.

I've been using Smashbox hydrating primer for years due to my dry skin. I bought this on a whim and I'm glad I did. You can see your skin get instantly brighter and more radiant as you apply. It's moisturizing but doesn't leave a greasy feel.

I just love this primer. It's so soft and moisturizing, that I use it as just a face lotion. It's AMAZING!!
