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.

This stuff is great! It truly feels like I’m putting vitamins on my skin! Only downside is the smell! It’s definitely awful! If it was a more perfumed scent i would use it more often!

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 generally don’t see a difference when I use a primer vs when I don’t, however this primer does generally help reduce the oiliness of my skin prior to putting on my foundation

This is by far my favorite face primer. It gives a very smooth finish that makes my face feel silky and allows make up to go on afterwards with even coverage. I will buy this over and over again. I would definitely recommend to others.

Such a huge difference using foundation after applying thus. I have forgotten to use it in a rush and it's night and day. Only takes a little bit to get super smooth skin.

I got this in a sample size when I bought a starter set from BM. This primer is so smooth and silky plus it does help make the foundation glide on smoothly and evenly.

I have tried this primer and honestly I was very pleased with it. It has a silky smooth texture and really feels like it fills in tiny pores and gives your skin a smooth texture to start with. Your makeup will apply easier and more evenly. The primer makes a big difference in the way your makeup will wear through the day. It will last longer and stay in place. I use it every day but once in a while I skip it if I am in a hurry but I definitely notice the difference later in the day and then regret it! It really helps make your skin look flawless! Totally worth it, great product!

This product works really well although it isn’t my favorite. It feels very siliconey and has pilled in the past when I’ve used it. But it definitely smoothes and blurs pores which is great!

I received this trial size a while back with a purchase from Ulta. I was so surprised how soft and wonderful this felt! It is expensive though and I'd say Elf mineral primer comes pretty close ; )

This is the only prinmer that I've found so far that does not make my face itch or break out. I live the silky smoothness of it. I also use it on my eyelids when I run out of shadow primer.

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?
