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 really like this primer. I've tried a couple, and this is definitely one of my favorites, but it does feel a little heavy on your skin. You get that silicone feeling, and while it may keep my skin looking good after a few hours, the heaviness bothers me a little.

I've had this for about a week or so, skeptical to try, but it was so worth it! My friend recommended it to me and I really liked it. It seems like it would be cakey or colored, but it goes on evenly and you cant even feel it. It really does hold your makeup in place throughout the day. I would recommend this.

I can’t decide if I love this product or not. While it does help keep my makeup on and I do notice a difference, it still slides off a little. It’s not my favorite but I still use it because I definitely notice a difference whenever I use it vs. whenever I don’t.

I did not like this primer at all. I think it's trying to be too magnifying to the point where it just clogs your pores and sits on top of your skin to mask the oil. This one didn't soak in or anything and it ended up peeling off my face when i applied it!

The stuff is amazing it makes my skin feel so silky soft, and definitely just a wonderful job of priming your face before you put your foundation on. I've run into a lot of primaries that just make your foundation chunky or an even and makes your skin feel really weird. This is definitely not one of them. I would totally recommend this too many women to try, it's worth every penny. The ones that have tent in them and just a little bit of glimmer also really great :)

Definitely one of my favorite primers! I've been using it for a couple years now and it makes my face so soft and smooth! Giving me an almost poreless look. Easy to apply foundation over top of.

I loved this primer. It worked really well for my combination skin. My foundation looked flawless, and it helps smooth out everything. It also helped my makeup stay on for hours. It was very creamy, and felt silicone based. I would buy this product again.

Goes a long way, I haven't been using it a long time, but I can definitely see a difference in my skin. My pores seem to be shrinking and I feel like I am having less of a problem with acne. I used to not wear foundation because of acne issues, but I think this stuff helps a ton!

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?
