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 really like this primer. I've tried a couple, and this is definitely one of my favorites, but it does feel a little heavy on your skin. You get that silicone feeling, and while it may keep my skin looking good after a few hours, the heaviness bothers me a little.

This primer is great when you want something nice and light under your makeup. Just a little bit goes a really long way. Unfortunately, I feel like my skin gets really oily during the day if I wear this, which is strange because my skin is naturally very dry.

This is the best primer I've came across so far for my skin type which is average/combination (not too oily, not too dry). It makes my foundation last literally all day long even through the night and I've noticed that it's also helping to protect my skin from the harshness and build up of wearing makeup everyday.

I absolutely love this primer! I got a small one in my bare minerals start up kit and I fell in love with the primer. It has the silicone feel and goes on smoothly, which helps my foundation lay on my face better. I've repurchased this many times and will continue to!

I really liked this primer but it made me break out like crazy so I had to switch to a different one. My skin is pretty sensitive so I would recommend it if you don't have such sensitive skin.

This does give your skin a soft start and a good foundation before your foundation, however I'm not a huge fan of bare Minerals in the first place they have a lot of fillers in their products

I received a sample of this product at Sephora. It feels slimy, but not wet - more like silky. While it does smooth over the skin nicely, I didn't feel like it made a difference in how well my foundation went on or how well it wore. It seemed like a useless step.

I like this primer compared to others that I've used. It's easy to use and inexpensive. It leaves your face feeling soft. It doesn't last as long as I would like to, but when you don't use liquid foundation you can't complain. I would definitely buy it again.

This primer is everything for me. It gives my skin a nice even finish and allows my foundation to go on nice and easy without any unevenness. AI really like that it is light and does not feel so weighed down on my face. Because of its airiness I tend to put it on alone and leave my face "bare" for the day.

This product makes your skin feel so soft, and makes your make up stay put ALL DAY! It also removes eye make up (ever get a spot of mascara on your face after your make up was done? This will take care of it!). Wonderful--I also love the new tinted on with SPF 15!

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?
