Product Description

What it is:

FACE PRIMER MADE WITH NATURAL INGREDIENTS

Engineered to be the perfect companion to our award-winning ORIGINAL Mineral Foundation, Prime Time® is an effective face primer that is suitable for all skin types and forms of face makeup. Formulated without preservatives, oil, fragrance or skin irritants, it glides on like silk with no stickiness and helps to smooth out your complexion instantly before you apply foundation.

Infused with nourishing natural ingredients including vitamins C and E, soothing plant extracts and antioxidants, our popular foundation primer is an important prep step of your daily makeup routine that helps to reduce excess oil and the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores, giving you a seamless satin canvas for your foundation of choice.

Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Silica, Magnesium Silicate, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract

Usage: 

For best results, shake the bottle well before each use. A little goes a long way with this powerful foundation primer.

Apply one pump to your fingertips and spread the lightweight primer all over your face and neck in an even layer with sweeping upward motions. Allow the face primer to absorb into your skin before applying foundation.

This was the first primer I ever used and it’s still a favourite. It’s kind to skin but strong enough to provide a barrier from foundation etc. It helps foundation last longer. Good value and good price. Would recommend.

I absolutely love this primer. I've been using it for about three years now. It keeps my oily skin under control while keeping my foundation lasting all day and looking the same as it did when I first apply it. I recommend this to everyone I talk to about makeup. It also helps any dry patches I have and smooths them over so my makeup doesn't cling!

All time favourite primer! I absolutely love the texture and consistency of this primer, it comes out like a gel but melts into the skin with a velvety texture which smooths over rough patches, enlarged pores and fine lines giving a really smooth base to the skin. Love this and it will always be my go to primer!

This primer is hands-down one of my favourites. My skin is oily so this primer is great at controlling my oiliness and making my skin look matte. I usually apply this primer through my t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) as that's where my skin tends to get the oiliest throughout the day. One of the best things I've noticed about this primer is that you literally need the smallest amount and it effectively locks your makeup into place.

This primer is fantastic especially that it has some sort of spf. The texture and consistency of the product is comparable to Benefit's porefessional with a clear colour. It does lessen the look of my pores and my foundation applies seamlessly but this primer has silica and I find at the end of the day my face is feeling quite clogged, needing a deep cleanse.

The bareMinerals Prime Time® Foundation Primeris a silicone based primer that feels smooth and velvety on the skin. I use it to prime my T-Zone and the sides of my nose as I get oily in these areas. My makeup goes on smoother in these areas, however it doesn’t do a great job of blurring my pores or fine lines.

This is my must have for everyday primer. I have found others feel oily or just don't feel smooth in the same way. The primer glides on and is perfect prep for my foundation. I buy the extra large bottle whenever they have it online.

Awesome. It has the loveliest texture and a dab the size of a pea covers my whole face. Smooths out my gaping pores and holds onto foundation very well. Remains in the same semi liquid state all day so it does transfer very easily to your phone or anything else you place upon your face. But it's great.

bareMinerals Prime Time® Foundation Primerfelt promising to begin with, makeup applied smoothly over the top with no issues. Skin felt smooth and supple. My problems arose the day after when I woke up to a small breakout around my nose. Perhaps not the best formulation for oily skin.

Does this primer actually work? I have only had one primer actually work on my skin.

I've been using a lotion as a primer with my bare minerals powder but just found that they have this primer. Does it actually work? And does it make your face oily?

I usually only use primer during the drier winter months. Do you use this product under your makeup all the time?

I just started using this product and am worried about breakouts- has anyone experienced bad breakouts using this?
