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 first got this primer in a bare minerals foundation kit and have continued to use it as a primer even years after I have stopped using the bare mineral powder. A little goes a long way. With a Smooth and silky application - my foundation goes on without any creases.

I love this product! It is great for fairly normal skin and keeps your foundation looking great all day! I love it's coverage, yet light feel. I just apply it with my hands, not brush needed! I have gotten it a few times and will continue to! I definitely recommend it!

Alright, I got an egiftcard from Sephora and wanted to try out something new. So I found this primer and it was a gift set so it came with powder. I tried it out and fell in love with it. The primer is like a gel that goes on your face under your foundation. It helps keep your makeup on all day and I think it gives it a more polished look. I will be buying this again.

I used this for a long time, and honestly there are so many better primers out there. I dislike the way it makes my skin feel, it made it feel tacky, and I replaced it after I finished the second bottle and will never go back to it, it did a decent job of making my make-up set well

Happy to have gotten a sample of this primer in a subscription box. I have been using it now for a week, no irritation or discomfort. Seems to do the job, feels very silicone based, but leaves skin nice and soft. Overall I think I would purchase this primer full size!

I got this a few years ago when make up primer wasn'( as popular as it is now and it was a really good product super easy to blend but it was a bit oily and it didn't really really help with dryness because I have eczema but I would recommend the hangover primer!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the consistency, Very comparable to my smashbox photo finish primer. I had originally gotten a sample size of this and was addicted from the start. Any time I have tried skipping it, my makeup just doesn't look as complete. Definitely a must have

This is just Okay, its a little silicone feeling. it does make foundation go on smooth, which is nice. but I don't know if helps make up last longer. I can get pretty oily during the day and I don't feel like it did anything to help with that. I wont be rebuying.

It makes my make up stay on super long! I took a nap in it and woke up and everything was still how it was when I originally put it on. However, I thought it was going to add more of a base color before I put my foundation on but it hasn't. I will buy this again!

This is a pretty good face primer, especially for the price. It applies well, giving your face a soft, smooth, even finish to apply your makeup to. Not a very big bottle, won't last too long if you use it every day, but like I said, for the price it's really good.

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?
