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.

I have quite oily skin so I found that this primer was too oil based to work well with my skin type but it did do its job and keep my makeup on pretty much all day but I would have to keep reapplying powder to my most oily areas because of the style of this primer

I only ever tried a sample version of this. It does make you feel comfortable however I don't think it gives any added benefit to the way you look when you then apply makeup unlike other brands can. For that reason I didn't go and buy a full size product.

Maybe I got a dud but my product would clump up on my skin. It felt very smooth on my hand but when applied to my face just seemed to get clumpy it wouldn't stick

I bought this because of the raving reviews on the Sephora website, however, this doesn't minimize thee look of the larger pores. However, it does feel very smooth, not greasy and doesnot irritate sensitive skin.

This is a great primer but i find that it doesn't work well with some of my foundation brands that I typically use- sometimes it gets really dry and flaky before I even apply my foundation. If you find the right combo of foundations this is it!

Left my face feeling smooth and levelled out my skin to my pores.
Can feel a little cakey after application, but soon disappears after applying your foundation or powder.

I got this as a gift from my family and now I can't live without it!! it makes the skin feel amazing but I don't think it's for oily skin, but in general it is a very very good product. It's easy to apply but the pump can't get all the product out :/

Makeup set well on this primer, and the price was right compared to others I tried, but I just found Smashbox to be silkier and feel better on my skin, so I switched.

This is very good primer, is comparable with smash box photo finish primer. Easy to use and easy to blend. A little goes a long way. Good for drier skin types. I would recommend this to others.

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?
