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 got this primer once to try out since I use the Bare Minerals foundations. Let me tell you it did not work, it literally did nothing for my skin. It didn't moisturize or help at all with my oily t-zone area. It just sat there on top of my skin and it actually made my mineral makeup look oily and shiny.

First time using a primer and I actually had no idea what the purpose was but I'm so glad I used it for my wedding day! The texture is unreal. It feels like butter, maybe that's not a good comparison but it's just so smooth. When applying it to your face it just smooths right into your skin and it's great!

I will not use bareMinerals foundation without having their primer first. I found that if I did not use the primer before putting on the foundation if I begin to sweat and my pores open up my face would itch. This product is a great job of keeping on the foundation but not letting that get into your pores

This is my favorite primer to date. A little goes a long way and it applies so nicely and evenly. It doesn't feel heavy or dry out my already dry skin. I wished it held my makeup a little longer. but it lasts for the work day at the very least. I've tried other primers and always end up going back to this one.

Okay i cannot stress how UTTERLY AMAZING this primer is, i wish i could give higher than 5 stars!! It covers all my pores and keeps my foundation on all day. This comes out as a lightweight bb cream like substance and it melts into skin, i love using it when i want my face to look absolutely flawless

I have since moved on to another primer that works better with a liquid; however, I used this primer all the time when I used Bare Minerals Matte mineral powder makeup. It helped it to glide on effortlessly and stay on all day. I felt it also helped combat my oiliness. If you are purchasing the mineral powder makeup, I would recommend using this product with it.

This is an ok primer. It's pretty thick, but it made my face break out. I didn't really notice it filling my pores or lasting any longer than any other drug store primer. I would rather spend the money and get something like hourglass mineral veil primer that lasts all day and covers my pores.

Yes BM, yes!! This is the only primer I use. I've tried high end and drugstore but return to this. It feels slippery and too wet when you first start to apply it. After it sets and soaks in, feels like butter. It's the perfect base for their matte foundation! Both my go-to daily makeup choices

Primer is essential and this one does the job! It keeps my makeup on for an extended period of time. When applied to the skin the primer feels silky smooth. The price is decent considering the bottle will lasts many many months, if not a whole year. I highly recommend this beautiful primer.

Love this primer! It makes my skin feel smooth and moisturized. I have occasionally used this product by itself on parts of my face that are dry. It is a good primer that lasts a long time (when used properly). You do not need to use much and then you are ready to apply your other makeup. Great product.

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?
