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.

Lovely silky soft primer that smoothd onto the skin amazingly. The only
Flaw was that I let didn't deal well with my dry skin and didn't cover the dry patches at all.

I use a sponge for applications. It goes on nice, but I also put it on over lotion because I have dryer skin. I wish it took out slightly more of the red undertone.

When I use powder foundation I like to use this primer because it smooths out pores and flaws in my face. It leaves a matte like finish after
Applying bare minerals powder foundation that is picture perfect.

This is so amazing! It has a slight bit of pigment which is great for if you don't want to wear makeup. It makes my makeup last all day and blend out so smooth!

Fantastic item. Makes your face smooth and makeup glides on like a dream. I love most bare minerals products. Very natural and never make your face feel caked.

It was my first foundation primer. I remember liking it, but since I have oily skin.. This did not really help with increasing my face makeup's longevity.

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?
