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 like this and it makes my face feel really smooth and it feels like my makeup stays on a lot longer than with some other primers I have tried . I gave it 4 stars because yes my face feels smooth but it also feels a little oily when you first apply it .

This prime really works well for me, keeps foundation flawless and last. great product. works well with most skin types. for some people with really sensitive skin ,it might break you out. a friend of mine broke out. but I've never had an issue.

I use this daily over my moisturizer. I only need to use a pea size amount for my full face. Takes a few seconds to dry before I can put my make up on with an all around smooth coverage. Helps keep the make up stay on my face throughout the day.

Loooovvveee! A die hard b.e fan here and this certainly is worth every penny. My skin is dry which makes foundation sometimes look cakey, but this totally smooths out my face and actually makes my makeup last longer. Gives a beautiful matte look.

I love how smooth this primer leaves my skin. It was first recommended to me to make my foundation apply smother even when I had patchy spots. The spots are gone but I can still see a significant difference between my foundation without primer and with it. It just looks more natural.

Prime time is my all time favorite make up primer! but that's probably because I'm a bare minerals lover. it makes my foundation look a million times better everyday! the sad part is the cost :( if it wasn't so pricey I'd buy it more often.

My favorite! Not too oily and in the 110+ degree temps here in Arizona it keeps my makeup in place! I love how at the end of the day of working I can still transition to something afterhours and my makeup is still exactly where it needs to be! I will purchase this again and again!

I bought this myself over Black Friday and I have been really loving it. It makes my skin nice and smooth giving it the perfect as for foundation. It helps make my makeup last longer and it fills in my pores. I love that it has a pump too!

I love how this primer makes my skin feel and how my makeup applies over it. I tried other primers but keep going back to this one. my makeup stays on longer and I don't get oily as quickly. Other primers broke me out. This one does not.

One of my favorite primers. It is not oily at all when you put it on your face. It gives you a soft, smooth canvas to apply your make up! Helps extend the wear of your makeup.

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?
