Product 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.

Great primer! Colorless, blurring and effortless to use. Goes on clean, not sticky and is long wearing. Good for all skin types. This type doesn't have any spf but the pigmented prime time does. Would most deff by again!

Good foundation makes my makeup last hours longer than normal. I’d say my skin is more on the oily side and some primers make it feel extra oily but not this one. It goes on smooth and hides my pores.

Really love this. Definitely recommend putting this on before outing foundation and the works on on. Easy to apply and mixes well with foundation. It gives a nice finished, radiant look afterwards.

I love this product. It smoothes out easily over my skin and doesn't leave me looking oily at all. It's a little pricey so I don't buy it often, but it works well! I would recommend it.

Makes my skin very soft. You don't need to use a lot. A little goes a long way. Easy to blend in. Give 30 seconds after using before you apply makeup so your skin can soak it in.

Pretty good primer. I think it makes my face feel a little too greasy. I do think bare minerals foundation needs a good base to stay on all day. I haven't noticed blurring of my pores.

Creates a smooth canvas for foundation. Personally I think this works best with Bare Minerals foundation. I tried it under Makeup Forever Foundation and it didn't blend evenly as with the Bare Minerals. Comes in different formulas for various skin types. I use Original even though I have combination skin and it controls oil just fine. The formula is not very thick but a little bit is all you need. I love that it's clear and it absorbs quickly.

This is good as a basic primer. It isn't overly matifying, and it won't give you a glow. It pills when used with water based foundation. It's best used with cream foundation or powder.

I have been using this primer for the last 6 years and I honestly have never thought about using anything else! This always ensures that my foundation goes on nice and smooth and stays all day (or night).

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?
