How to know if you've removed all the primer?
Currently using Clinique Creamy Cleanser to remove makeup, sunscreen and primer. Hoping I don't have to resort to an oil cleanser, but I'd like to know what everyone is using. Thanks. Oh, have combo skin. Using the Light Primer on t-zone, Hydrating everywhere else. Thanks for reading and look forward to your advice.

on Photo Finish Hydrating Foundation Primer
I have used Smashbox primer for years and absolutely swear by it. (I use La Fresh makeup remover wipes and I've never had any problems removing it.) I was really excited to see this primer in a hydrating formula because my skin is sooooo dry. I was fortunate enough to get it in a couple of sample sizes, as well as trying it at a Sephora store, and I'm really glad I did. I don't find it hydrating in the least. It feels sticky, thick and lacks the silky soft feeling that I so love in the other Smashbox primers. It was hugely disappointing. I'll stick to the ones I already swear by! Perhaps you are experiencing the same sticky thickness that I did with the hydrating primer and maybe it doesn't feel like it comes off as easily.
Washing your face thoroughly will remove it. Follow up with a cotton ball dipped in toner or witch hazel to remove trace amounts.
