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 never really understood or cared for this product. I am familiar with primers but this feels really weird on my skin and I am pretty sure it is the cause of some breakouts. My skin gets really shiny and greasy with this so I have switched to a different product.

I have super oily skin and was worried that this would make my skin even oilier but it didn't! Instead it actually made my skin much more manageable and of course helped keep my makeup in place even on the hottest days.

This primer is very smooth overall. A little bit goes a long way. I find that it helps keep my makeup on all day verses not wearing anything. It's very easy to apply. You only need about a dime size for your whole face. I would definitely buy it again!

I do like the formula and I like how it is more of a thicker primer. I have used it since it was launched. I recently discovered a makeup line that is more pure and so i prefer that one if any of you are interested it is called 100%pure cosmetics and the primer is seaweed collegen. so freaking amazing

I own this but do not really use it that often, I feel like every time I use it, my face seems to break out a little or look a little oily. It seems like a great product and may just have not worked well for my face, because I love other Bare Mineral Products

I use this primer every day. I find that some can leave oil and not fully prime, but this one is amazing! I only need the smallest bit and it primes my whole face perfectly!

I bought this primer several years ago in department store. I t was fantastic, super moisterizing and ight. Sometimes I wore it by itself, but I usually wore it under the bare minerals powder foundation. I would absolutely recomend it. Its an investment.

I really liked this primer. The feel of it going on my skin was velvety & I do feel it made my makeup look better when I used it. I will not be repurchased it any time soon due to the price. But if you have the money to splurge I do think it is a great primer.

Review for: bareMinerals Prime Time Original Face Primer more...
I can't say I really liked how this worked. It didn't spread well across my face, and I honestly felt like it did nothing to help my makeup stay put. I wish that I had seen some more reviews and had not been as lured in by the cheap price. Primer is definitely one of the main products in my everyday wear, and this did not live up to what I needed it to do.

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?
