i think this is what has been clearing my skin up. i started using this at night on top of my serums and maybe it is protecting my pores. but i notice when i wash my face at night my skin looks clearer. :)
I feel like I've been around both the moisturizer and primer blocks a few times - I have a lot of trouble with combination, sensitive skin that need hydration in some areas and oil-control smoothing in others. I don't know how this product manages it, but it does both! I use this as a moisturizer in the evenings after I take my makeup off as well and my skin has never looked better. Gone are the blemishes and dry patches. Even the redness in my face is calming after a month of solid use. I've turned my back on pretty much every other product in my cabinet and am using this exclusively. I wish JI had a matching eye cream, honestly.
I wanted to let you know that Smooth Affair is the best facial product I have ever used. I am 66 years old and use it every morning and night. My skin feels and looks so much better. There is no greasy feeling and it absorbs into the skin beautifully. Thanks for this fantastic product. - Karen from Osceola, Indiana
I love this primer! It all starts with a great foundation for my Amazing Base and continues as a result of AWSOME Customer Service. I can't say enough about JI cosmetics, which makes up 99.9% of what I use. Not only are JI products amazing, the stellar Customer Service is truly beyond 5 star.
Regarding your smooth affair primer..all it does is dry my skin out no dewy affect..maybe i have a defective one..i use the bbcream and have no problem also i have tried the dream tint moisturizer which is great too.I am disappointed din the smooth affair primer and that i wasted 48 dollars..i bought it at charles and david salon in Hanover,ma Would it be possible to get some kind of compensation??
I'm from Hong Kong, i started using JI mineral foundation and primer for 2 months and i love it. I have oily skin, before i brought this primer... i really take some times to go over all the review from others. I am a little bit afraid that this won't work for me, cause people said that it works well with dry skin. After i went to the shop and tried it on my hand, it feels so soft, i love it. The first day i put it on, i still worry about if it's too oily for me. But, guest what.....it works great on my skin! Amazing! My pores disappeared! It works really good with mineral foundation. (I have loose and pressed) My makeup can stay all day long, i can't believe it. This primer compare with my others: Laura Mercier, Nars, Bare Minerals..... Jane is the best! Just one thing is.... the price is kind of expensive here. If they put down a little would be better, others all good. Thank you.
What a great primer and I love the scent.
I'm 66 and believe me I want "dewy" so this primer is just what I was looking for. I also like the fresh scent. Alas I am retired and on a fixed income so it is a bit pricey for me but I'll make the sacrifice.
This product makes my face super oily by mid day. I love the BB Cream, but am not happy I spent $50 on something I probably won't use anymore. It does have an amazing scent to it though.
Let me preface this review by saying although the ji packaging is quite small I am a tried and true devotee...that said I did not think twice about purchasing the primer and just assumed I would adore it much as I adore all ji products and it broke me out horribly in fact I am still nursing the outbreak several days after discontinuing the primer. Of course because I am such a fan I did not keep my box to return just assuming it would be fantastic! Oh well!
I am an esthetician & I cannot help but to try many products,especially for the look & skin I'm trying to achieve.Many reviews state the cost of this product,but ingredients,process do go into the cost.This is my favorite primer,from the soft light texture to the beautiful scent of grapefruit.Even though the spas I work in do not offer this line,I always suggest this product.Thank you for this wonderful & heavenly product!
The smell of this primer isn't as strong as some reviews might make you understand. It is very light and nice. This blends on your skin effortlessly. It makes it soft and supple. The BB cream stays on for the whole day with this. For oily skin though, I find this a little too dewy. I bought this instead of the Absence oil control because of the ingredients. With some face powder I can make it work. For dry, more mature skin I bet this works WONDERS!!! It is very enjoyable using this :)
I know there have been some unhappy reviews over this product so I just had to submit my own review of this product. Most primers out there are not for drier skin types. I have tried so many of them and nothing compares to this one. The silicones found in most primers absorb what little moisture my skin has and makes my skin look even drier. They make my foundation look worse. They were designed for a matte finish. Perhaps for someone who is oily, matte would be the look going for. People who have dry skin matte is not the best. I have yet to find a primer that works for my dry skin. Well until I tried this product. I use this product with the Jane Iredale Tinted moisturizer and BB cream. I love it. The tinted moisturizer and BB cream go on smoothly and evenly. Even the tinted moisturizer stays on all day with this product. My skin glows and has a beautiful radiance. I couldn't stop looking at my skin in the mirror. And when I take my makeup off after a long day, my skin looks even better. What makeup can you say does that??? It definitely is skincare makeup. Amazing ingredients as well. Yes this primer isn't for oily skin. If you have oily skin or combo skin try Jane's "Absence" primer. I personally think all makeup brands should have a primer made for different skin types. Dry and oily types cannot wear the same primers. I know. I wanted to wear a more natural foundation that was better for my skin. I found it in Jane Iredale BB cream and I also wanted a primer made for my dry skin and I have found it in the Smooth Affair. I love it and I can't live without it. My skin looks gorgeous with and without makeup thanks to Jane.
I was so excited to be able to finally buy this product, only to be tremendously disappointed after using it. It made my face so oily to the point where people were commenting on how shiny it was!!! Obviously so embarrassing! I don't have oily skin at all so I don't get it. I switched from using Smashbox Primer to try this one and I will definitely be going back to Smashbox. WHAT A WASTE OF $$$
I've used this for a while now and I love this. It keeps the makeup from settling into pores very well. I tried using the bb cream with out it and with it and ill always use the primer. It really does make a difference. Absolutely the best primer I've ever used. since I started using this line of makeup my skin has gotten healthier looking. Thank you Jane Iredale
I had a Smashbox primer that worked wonders. Since I've liked most of the other Jane Iredale products I've tried, I thought I'd try this one. It didn't work near as well, and for $48, it should've worked a lot better than an $8 bottle.
This smells nice and feels good going on. Does it do anything beyond that? I don't think so. It feels just like I'm putting a non greasy moisturizer on my face but beyond that, I haven't noticed any other effect. I'll use the tube, but I'll spend my money on another product when it's gone.
I have the most sensitive skin out there and this primer didn't hurt my skin or break me out. This line of makeup is very sensitive and if used correctly gives awesome results. Makeup companies are so scared to put makeup out there that can actually change the skin and help us for fear of an uninformed customer getting a slite rash ( maybe from the product or maybe just environmental) and giving up on the product or freaking out. This brand is the best I've found yet and am so appreciative to Jane Iredale and her team for it. I'm not one to write reviews until I found this makeup. I love every single item I've purchased and will continue to build my collection.
I started using this primer after my husband and I got back from a trip to Florida. The Florida weather really hurt my skin and made it - especially my face - rough and bumpy. After only using this for a week, I had noticeably smoother skin. It's been almost a month and my skin just continues to get better. Love it!
Anticipated this primer would help my foundation last throughout the day and give my skin a healthy glow; however that was not what I got instead I got what looks like a allergic reaction to one of the ingredients. After two days of wear I have broken out terribly, just be warned all you sensitive skin girls this is not for everyone.
I really wanted to love this product; it smells amazing and feels incredible on the skin (initially). However, I after months os use, I can't say it works well as a primer or a brightener. Combo-to-Oily girls be weary, I think it must be better for dry skin (and probably amazing) because instead of mattifying is moisturizes...a lot. By mid-day my face is like an oil slick and I would only use the tiniest bit (because a little goes a long way). As per brightening, I'm not sure why this is even mentioned, because it doesn't seem to brighten skin temporarily or long term.
I am really liking the facial primer and brightener, its the same great results as when you wear the liquid foundation, only you get to wear the pressed powder instead. Skin also looks great when you wash it off.
Smells divine...I love putting it on so much-I layer it on twice :). Makeup goes on top very nice :) oxox
I'd never used a facial primer before this one; I avoided them because so many are filled with junk that's bad for my skin. Fortunately, that's not a concern with Jane Iredale products. Smooth Affair smells great, hydrates, blends easily, absorbs quickly, and actually makes my foundation go on smoother (and without having to use as much product to get the same coverage)! It's also great for mixing with other products; if I don't want a full-coverage look, I use equal parts Glow Time and Smooth Affair--mix a tiny bit together, then apply. Perfection!
I have tried several primers, and this is amazing I definitly recommend it. It makes your skin smooth and makes the foundation go on GREAT!!!!
Has a really lovely smell and feel, absorbs thoroughly. I actually really like it, But there's no difference between using glow time with or without this, which is what it was sold to me for. If it weren't so expensive I'd say it's perfect light moisture for summer night under glow time.
This stuff smells and feels lovely, but I don't see it do anything for my skin other than being a very very light moisturizer.
I have tried many primers in my makeup routine over the years. I love using Jane iredale's pure pressed base and alone it looks great but using it with this primer makes a huge difference. It smells amazing, fills in pores, feels very soothing when applied and seems to be helping. My acne heal faster. It makes my minerals last all day and couldn't be happier with this product. I even use it on days I'm not wearing makeup because I feels so nice! Pricey but worth every penny!
I have used other primers before and usually they feel slick and like silicone. They seem to just lay on top of my skin. I just used the Facial Primer for the first time today and what a difference! It goes on smoothly, blends right in and feels great. My skin actually looked so good I almost skipped my PurePressed Base. After applying my PurePressed Base, my skin just glowed. An awesome product!
I have two small children and never take time to write product reviews, but this product is worth my time. I have been using Smooth Affair Primer and Brightener for over one week and am thrilled with the results! I am 41 years old, my children are 2 1/2 years and 15 months old. I never look smooth or bright. This product instantly made my skin look bight, poreless, and well rested. It stays on all day. Smooth Affair looks gorgeous on my skin alone, but with foundation looks amazing. The smell is heavenly, makes me feel like I'm treating myself to a spa treatment before I start changing diapers all day. I will be purchasing this again and again. Please try it!
