Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer Dark Spot Correcting Review
This product was created to be both a primer and skin care. It is supposed to be used to prep the skin for foundation, as well as correct dark spots and even out the complexion over time, with consistent use.

Here’s what Smashbox says,
More than primer = less dark spots! Makeup meets skincare with this primer revolution. 84% of women saw significant improvement in just 4 weeks with the clinically proven formula. It instantly brightens and primes to smooth the appearance of fine lines and pores, while fading dark spots and acne marks over time.
• Thanks to advanced C-Phyte Complex, 84% of women saw significant improvement in just 4 weeks (when used twice a day):
o Reduces dark spots
o Diminishes acne marks
o Improves radiance
• Instantly smoothes and brightens skin, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless makeup application
For best results, be sure to use twice a day-you’ll see the difference in as little as a month!”
The very lightweight formula sinks wonderfully into the skin and feels incredibly soft. I love how my skin feels after I have applied this, because it feels weightless and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tacky or greasy in any way.
Although I was pretty skeptical when I first started using this product, I now really do believe that it helped lighten some of my acne scars. Of course, this could just be “all in my head”, but I do see an improvement of my skin overall. At first I only used it as a primer, but then for the last month or so, I used it as directed (twice a day).
Overall, I really do love this product! I think it has helped improve my skin, I love how it feels, and I enjoy how my foundation goes on over this product. The only downside, as far as I can see, is that hefty price tag.
Do I recommend this product? Yes… if you have the budget and want to experience a luxurious primer that also offers skin care benefits, then it is worth a try. I would like to repurchase this… but it probably won’t be any time soon, because it is simply not in the budget. (I did receive this product as gratis, when I worked at Ulta a while back. That, however, does not change my opinion or my review on this product in any way.)
