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 haven't tried many other primers so I don't have much to compare it to but I do love this stuff. It goes on and makes my skin so smooth and helps my makeup to stay put all day. It's a but pricy but otherwise I like it.

I love how smoothly the primer spreads onto my face! It helps hide all my pores, blackheads, acne & redness! It works great for all kinds of skin, before I had my son my skin was very oily, now it’s very dry and it’s always worked well for me & makeup on top of it looks very nice. I would absolutely purchase this product again.

I had never user a primer in the past, but got the Prime Time primer and it helped smooth out my skin before I applied the foundation. I loved how light it was and how easy it was to apply. It looked natural and helped keep my foundation in place. I would absolutely recommend it to others!

I have really enjoyed using this primer. It makes my makeup glide on over my face and look poreless and flawless. One negative thing I have noticed is that it makes my skin feel a little dry when I put it on, but then it goes away. My makeup lasts all day with this primer and I highly recommend!

This primer works pretty well. I do not recommend this primer for anyone prone to acne. It has silicone and covers the pores, but it makes the foundation stick in the pores instead of gliding over it. I recommend this for people with dry skin. It does keep makeup on longer, which is a plus.

Pretty basic primer. Nothing special happens with this and it has a gel like texture that leaves me feeling greasy rather than primed. Overall I wouldn’t waste money on this primer when there are so many great ones out there! Even the Milani primer from the drug store is way better than this!

I used to use this primer but I've stopped. I felt like it really didn't help me at all. It made me really oily, even with the oil free one. It just sat on top of my skin not really settling into my pores.

I have tried both their original primer as well as the tinted primers and they are both good products. I prefer the tinted one to even out my skin tone a bit more. They apply smooth and seem to last well throughout the day. Definitely needed before applying other bare minerals products!

I've been using this product for a while now and it's one of my favorite products to use. It makes my makeup look flawless. You don't have to use use very much to cover your entire face. I would definitely recommend this product 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?
