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.

I love it well this and any of there products and i especially love that it has spf. i also realized that it does keep my makeup on full coverage during the whole day. but make sure you put it on before your foundation, also make sure u let it dry for at least 5 min to get the full affect

I really like this product. It smells great, makes skin soft, and doesn't make my skin too oily. I don't use it daily only because it's more expensive than I'd like to spend when I'm already using moisturizer.

This primer is the one I always come back to! It works all day, keeps my skin at a beautiful texture, and does not irritate my skin! This will definitely keep your makeup lovely all day without skin irritation!

I like the consistency of the product and how it goes on to the skin. I disliked how after a couple hours of use, I began to get a bit blotchy on my T-Zone area. On the good side, I was given a sample size

The feel of this primer is really nice. Have to be careful with it because if you add too much to skin it'll dry funny and leave white color. But it works perfect even with other products then bare minerals...

I use bare minerals almost exclusively during the summer and when I use the mineral makeup this makes it so smooth and beautiful. I will repurchase, as I will repurchase the foundation that accompanies it.

I LOVE this primer. It is lightweight and helps keep my BareMinerals in place all day. I can tell a huge difference in the way my makeup goes on if I forget to use it. It is one of the obly makeup porducta that I continually repurchase.

Great primer. Feels great on my skin and really helps my makeup stay. It is a little pricey (most of my makeup is around drugstore price) and a small amount of product, but it's definitely worth it for the quality.

Love this primer! makes my skin so smooth and helps my make up last throughout the day. Little tip : let the primer dry for a few minutes before applying makeup to ensure the product can really do its magic

Didn't really notice anything. Didn't add to my foundation nor did it hydrate my skin. It didn't dehydrate it either it was just as if I had put nothing on before my foundation.

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?
