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.

Great product!! Used this during a friends wedding, lasted through the entire ceremony! Especially great since I was the MOH and running around a lot before the ceremony and then up on stage in a building that didn't want the air conditioner on. Great all day hold!

This primer didn't really do much for me. I have combination skin and it did not help set the foundation on my oily t-zone. It did not, however, make my skin dry or break me out at all which is why it's getting more than 1 star.

This primer is very gel like and seems to leave my skin with an oily residue. Putting makeup on top of it can be difficult and it just doesn't look any different as if I hadn't worn primer. BareMinerals is one of my favorite brands but this primer is horrible, definitely would not recommend.

I just went to a Bare Minerals store and got a mini makeover and I just love their products! This primer is fabulous! Not too heavy, goes on smoothly! My new favorite!

I'm a huge fan of this. I feel like I reach for it over all others I have (Mac, smashbox, loreal, and many more). I just like how I apply it then it doesn't feel like I have anything sitting on my skin. I do think it makes my foundation "stick" better though!!!

This is the best primer I have ever used. Bare Minerals makeup has changed the way I apply makeup, my morning routine, and overall the way I feel.
This primer alone cancels out redness and dark spots and evens out my skin tone.

I love this primer - it not only creates a smooth appearance to my skin before I even apply makeup, but it also adds a little glow/shimmer underneath my foundation. Also, of course, since it's Bare Minerals, it doesn't make me break out!

I love the prime time primer! It really makes my foundation go on smooth and makes my skin flawless! I have really dry skin to begin with, and this does not dry my skin more. I typically use after washing and using a moisturizing toner from C. O. Bigelow. This dries really quickly too! This is a product I always have on hand.

Any bare mineral products are usually to die for, but this baby i can not use y make up without it. I have combo skin so it smooths out my dry skin, and controls my oily spots while keeping my foundation on SCORE. A MUST HAVE.

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?
