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 have very sensitive skin so I am always concerned with new products. This primer is excellent as it doesn't irritate my skin, but still does its job well. Leaves my skin feeling silky smooth.

I received this trial size a while back with a purchase from Ulta. I was so surprised how soft and wonderful this felt! It is expensive though and I'd say Elf mineral primer comes pretty close ; )

I didn't see much of a difference with this primer. I have oily skin and it didn't control my oils at all. I'm guessing that it may have been better if I used all baremineral products. I am not fond of any of the foundations so I used different ones with this primer

I wanted to like bare minerals, but primer just wasn't doing it for me. I tried primer on half of my face and no primer on the other and barely noticed any difference

This is one primer that I definitely use. I have not found another primer that makes my skin look even. I have several imperfections and freckles. This really blends the foundation. I love it!

Prime Time provides a smooth and silky canvas for your foundation, and doesn't feel heavy at all. You only need to use a little, because like with most BE products, a tiny bit goes a long way!

The best of the best. I use this with or without foundation. It really works wonders to my face and makes it look ten times better. You hardly need any which is a huge plus.

I loved the way this stuff made my face feel.. So super soft.. i didn't really notice that it helped with my makeup to be honest.. The bottle does not last very long if you use it regularly..

I don't really see the point. I feel like it doesn't do much to my face and it is really expensive. I got it in for a free trial from ulta but otherwise, I don't think it is work the money.

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?
