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 love this primer for to use on days when I have zero time. I will just this and some mascara for polished look. Not drying, feels great on the skin. Blends well!
one pump works well for coverage & works well with my make up. Would definitely purchase again!

I love this primer. Not only can you use it underneath your makeup, but you can also use it on top of your makeup to help it stay in place. It sprays on easily with the pump and only takes a small amount. It sprays evenly and can be used all over your face!!

I originally received this product as a sample. After finishing it, I immediately went out and repurchased it. This product was great because it felt very light on the face. It made my skin feel very smooth, and my makeup looked very smooth on top of it. This primer is worth the price.

I'm not a huge primer person so you may want to take my review with a grain of salt, I just don't see a huge difference with this product. I feel like my makeup already last through the day so I don't have that issues. I also don't notice a difference in the appearance.

I just tried this today. At first i loved it since my pores werent noticeable. It was so easy to apply leaving my face feeling smooth but after a while it made my pores look huge. Maybe i need to try it with another foundation. Still loved it though.

I love this primer! It is excellent for setting powder foundations and provides a nice palette for concealers and other face products. It goes on dry and doesn't get tacky. Definitely recommend this brand. They have several different primers and I like them all.

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.

This is a nice primer. However, I have oily/combination skin and this makes me break out every time. I would recommend this primer for those with normal or dry skin. It has a natural finish and holds your makeup all day, but unfortunately it's not for me.

This is by far my favorite primer. I have very dry skin and some texture this hydrates and eliminates pore completely. This makes your skin feel velvety. I would recommend this for dry to normal skin.

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?
