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 love the texture of this primer it makes you skin feel soft. I like it for all skin types - but I think it only works well with its own brands makeup. It is technically made for that as its their primer for their brand but when I used it for different foundation it infact made it seperate. Other than that I like it

I really love this primer, works great and makes my skin feel lovely and soft, I'd say the only downside is the pump tends to dispense a lot more then you actually need as a foundation primer I've found if you use too much it tends to make my face a little greasy.
Overall it's a good product to use with foundation and i would definitely recommend it.

Review for: Bare Minerals Prime Time Foundation Primer more...
I had never tried primers before I found Prime Time. It left such an amazing impression on me with the way that my makeup looked and felt. It applies so heavenly, and my skin feels like porcelain after. The way that my makeup looked even better than it felt, and not only did it help my accompanying Bare Minerals powder look like it was my actual skin (but better!), but it increased the amount of time that I was able to wear my makeup throughout the day without having to freshen it up. Would 110% recommend to women who love having flawless makeup.

I got this product as a sample when I purchased my Barre Minerals kit. I had never used primer before but I noticed a big difference in how great my foundation and makeup looked after applying them. I am planning on purchasing this primer soon and am looking forward to using it often.

The original and best facial primer, especially if you're using bareminerals original foundation. A little goes a long way, though I have had issues with the pump action bottle in the past. I get through a couple of bottles of this a year and always come back to this brand.

Bare Mineral prime time is great start to your makeup application. Refreshing and minimizes my pores and is easily applied and blended with a brush. The bonus is the SPF 15 protection and it extends the life of your foundation. A great product I would purchase again.

I got this primer along with the bare minerals powder foundation and mineral veil. It works quite well on my skin -- applies clear and smoothly. Feels a bit oily but I suppose the powder counteracts with that anyway. Keeps my makeup on and primes it for foundation!

I love that this primer comes in a larger bottle because I tend to go through primers quickly. This product is awesome for all skin types. I find it really targets both my dry patches and oily areas well. The price is a bit steep but it's a great splurge product!

Bare minerals foundation primer provides a lovely coverage and easy application, it doesn't leave the face tacky once applied. It provides and even coverage for easy foundation application. You do have to wait 5 minutes for it to set in your face but its worth it.

I've been on the hunt for a good primer that will help minimize my pores and that is exactly what this primer does! Minimizes my pores and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth! Half a squirt of this product will prime your whole face and a bottle will last you a long time! I highly recommend this for people struggling with large pores and oily 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?
