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.

Excelente primer!! Y'all just don't understand. Everybody needs to try this at least once and you'll fall in love just like I did. The makeup and everything come out even after you use this. It doesn't feel as if your using allot of products on your face. It's very light and amazing.

This primer works well! I love the. Natural look that all bare mineral products have, and this primer helps keep that look from fading or rubbing off. You don't have to use a lot, but the bottle is smaller so I try to use it sparingly.

This primer is awesome! It goes on so smoothly. It does help hide my pores, let my liquid foundation go on smooth as well. I have an oily nose and it helps with that. I love how it is long lasting, and it doesn't make my face fill heavy.

Not a very good product for oily skin. it was like it made my skin greasier. I had to blot more often than what I normally would with a different primer. my mother has dry skin and it works great for her so maybe it's just not ment for oily skin? idk? I gave it a 1 because I can't use it.

I don't think I'll ever go back to just using the foundation without the primer now! The foundation primer is wonderful! It gets me maximum time use (I go a 12 hour day with no issues) and it really is good for summer time when your body is sweating more and your foundation tends to run.
The ONLY downside is that when you're first using it, there's a bit of a learning curve in terms of how much primer to use. But I figured it out within 2-5 uses. WORTH IT! :)

My mom relieved a sample size of this primer and gave it to me. I used it all up and although it's very silky and feels nice on the skin, I feel like it didn't do much for my foundation in the wear time.

This primer is okay but there are so many better ones out there. I feel like this just doesn't really do anything. My makeup didn't last longer. It just felt good on the skin when you put it on but there was no WOW factor to it. It is definitely not one that I will be repurchasing.

This primer smells funky and you have to be sure to spread it well (if you leave a little too much not rubbed in it will appear white-ish). However I still use it every time I'm going to wear foundation. I've been using it for about 3 years now and will definitely continue buying it.

My skin is really oily so it doesn't take foundation very well. Although I have yet to find a primer to fully work, this is one of the better kinds I have used. It feels silky and nice when you apply it.

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?
