Packaging Highlights

  •     Comes in a simple black and white cardboard box
  •     The water itself is packed in a nice transparent bottle with black design on top that is quite appealing
  •     Gives a feeling of hydration when you look at the bottle
  •     Comes with a regular spray fitting for spraying water all over your face; nothing too unique about the spraying part


  •     It is soooo hydrating (I wish I could add as many O’s as I possibly could)
  •     Lightweight
  •     Hydrates skin immediately after spraying
  •     Great on its own before applying foundation
  •     Adds such a nice hydrating dewiness to the face when sprayed on foundation brush
  •     Refreshes skin
  •     Can be sprayed every 3 to 4 hours to refresh skin in hot weather
  •     Makes foundation looks dewy, hydrating and natural
  •     Easy to apply
  •     Travel friendly
  •     Makes skin so soft, smooth and hydrated


  •     Does not increase longevity of makeup
  •     Expensive

My Thoughts

I am in love with this Smashbox primer water. I didn’t like it initially but I cannot live without it anymore. I have to spray it either on its own all over my face or on my foundation brush because without it I clearly feel there is something missing in my routine and that is the hydration it provides. It absorbs fast into the skin and is so lightweight that you just cannot feel anything on your even when you apply foundation afterwards. Skin feels very light and rejuvenated as it has been pampered well.
Best before applying foundation!

Suggested Usage as on Sephora

Mist on this multitasking water in 3 ways:

  •     Prime to create the sheerest canvas for makeup application
  •     Set makeup to lock in your look
  •     Refresh throughout the day to wake up skin
  •     Hold bottle eight to 10 inches from the face and mist evenly
  •     For an extra refreshing, ultra-cooling mist, store in the fridge

What I Suggest:

I pretty much use it the same way as suggested on Sephora website but I don’t use it to set my makeup and I suggest that you try spraying it on your foundation brush before applying foundation and see the hydration spreading all over your face.
