I picked Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener to use it during winters when my facial skin tends to dry easily. Recently, I have developed a problem; I tend to get breakouts due to pore clogging or some skin irritation from some products. I was hesitant to buy this primer, thinking that it may or may not suit my sensitive skin.

In my opinion, this primer can be used by normal to dry and combination skin types. However, I am reserving this primer for use during cooler climate – autumn and winter. This primer is not advisable for oily skin types. Jane Iredale has a different primer for oily skin types. I apply this primer all over my face. I sometimes apply it directly on to my face and sometimes over my daily moisturizer. However, very less quantity is required to apply all over the face. It helps to set my Jane Iredale beauty balm and foundation lasts longer. It moisturizes, hydrates, brightens and smoothens my facial skin.
