Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer – Oily Skin Review

We here at Leslie Here – which is just….me…Leslie (hi!) – love a good one-two punch. Any sort of product that promises to do two things at once. One that helps to eliminate the need for two steps, the need for two products, the need for two PURCHASES. YAS.

I have been curious about this since it launched, and then gosh darnit, if it wasn’t 40% off during the “Love Your Skin” event that Ulta always reels me in with!

In this review, I am going to go over theΒ Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask from Glow Recipe that everyone on social media was losing their G-D minds over (apparently it had an 8,000 person wait list at Sephora? Was I one of those people? I don’t even rememebr, but it is highly likely..). Is it fantastic-amazing-perfect-worth it in every way? Well let’s find out!
