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 bare minerals products. They are a little on the expensive side but totally worth it. I love this primer bc it's so soft on the skin, doesn't break my skin out and spreads so easily.

Great primer! Goes on smooth and makes your skin feel like velvet, really helps keep your foundation on all day. Doesn't make your skin feel oily or over moisturized.

This primer is the best I've ever used. I'm a huge fan of Bare Minerals, but this just took it to a higher level. A little goes a long way. It glides on silky smooth and leaves the foundation looking flawless. must have!!!

This is just an O.K. primer in my opinion. My t-zone is oily and this just seems to make it worse. I would recommend this primer for someone with normal or dry skin.

This is a really great foundation! You just need one pump and you makeup goes on smooth and stays perfectly all day! Easy to and comfortable to have on! Comparable to most other silicone primers. I would definitely get it again.

I absolutely LOVE the bare minerals line! Prime time is the first step in applying your makeup everyday, and I couldn't live without it. It has a light, non-greasy feel and really helps the powders last all day on your skin.

This primer is a good primer. It does last long through out the day. It does have sun protection (SPF 30). The primer is easy to apply and blend. I would recommend this to someone who wants something easy to apply and blend.

This primer was ok! It felt a little liquidy and I did not obsess over the finish. I am not a huge fan of Bare Minerals overall and believe that there are better makeup companies out there.

One of my favorite primers of all time, doesn't cling to certain areas of the skin like some products do. Lasts throughout the day and keeps makeup in place all day

I'm not sure if it was just the primer or if it was the whole line of facial products but my face broke out each and every time I attempted to use this. It looks good on application but the breakouts were not pretty.

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?
