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 bought and I am so happy with it. The formula is really smooth and glides on my skin, adding a lil shine to keep the skin looking dewy. The primer itself works wonders with my makeup and I've never had to worry about breakouts.

Does seem to help blur pores and fill them in. Not sure how much this is as I only have a travel size which I got as a gift in a set. I do enjoy using it though & does make makeup application easier! Definitely worth a try if your a bareminerals fan

I love love love this primer by bare minerals. It makes my skin hydrated, and so soft. This primer has a dewy finish. It lasts me all day and my foundation glides evenly. I highly recommend this primer because it has vitamin C and E which protects the skin.

I got the primer in a Bare Minterals kit.  It is a silicon based primer to help minimize the pores.  I did not see much difference in that. It does a decent job helping apply my foundation.  However, with powder foundation it makes my pores stand out more compared to liquid foundation.

This is 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. It’s a product I repeat buy and I’d recommend it.

Really silky on the skin, you can barely feel it. However makes the skin feel slightly greesy after. Really easy to apply with your fingers. All things considered really good primer.

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!

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?
