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.

This is a great primer for that stay all day makeup look! it comes out with a more yellow tint to it, which helps corrects imperfections in color. it makes my makeup stay all day, doesn't have a strong scent, and isn't that expensive! I would definitely recommend this!

This primer is great for filling in your pores & fine lines. It helps your makeup last longer for sure. On days that I don't wear it, I notice my makeup seperate faster. So, this is definitely a staple first step! I've been using this for the past few years and still love it.

I liked this primer because it's very hydrating and it made my skin glow. However, I recently switched to a different primer because I felt like my moisturizing foundation was sliding off with this primer. I switched to more of a gel based primer and it has made a difference. This is a great primer if you're using a thicker, medium-heavy coverage foundation.

I just recently purchased Bare Minerals products after some hesitation. Holy Cow! Why did i waste so much time using other face products?! This primer moisturizes and preps my skin without feeling too oily or cake-y. It also works well with other liquid foundations, not just powder. I have sensitive skin that breaks out easily and this product did not cause any problems

Not a fan. It just makes me oily. It doesn't help at all with the wear and appearance of my foundation…it actually make it worse. I used it twice and chunked it. I wouldn't recommend for the oily or oily to combination skin types. Maybe this could work for dry skin??

I really like this primer. It's the first one I ever used and after 13 years still my favorite. Hide pores and kept makeup on most of the day. Worked really well with mineral foundations. Would still be using but there foundation no longer works for me.

I love this product. It goes on smoothly, makes my skin feel so soft, and my make up looks so much better when I use this primer with it. It works great with my oily skin. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a quality primer!

This is a great primer that I use everyday with my BareMinerals. I find it goes on smoothly and provides a nice canvas for me to apply the rest of my makeup. My one complaint is that I run out of my primer faster than the rest of my makeup so I find myself replacing it before my powders.

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?
