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.

This primer really does make my makeup go on more smoothly. I have tried lots of primers, and although this does feel like silicone as it goes on, you don't feel it for the rest of the day. It's light and doesn't clog my pores.

I have tried many primers and while a friend claims this is her holy grail for me it balled up because of the silicone and did nothing for me. I did not enjoy using it.

This is my all time favorite primer. It took me a while to get used to the consistency, but once I did, I realized how little you could get by with. Super smooth. Leaves me with silky skin.

This makes your face feel as smooth as silk, it isn't greasy & has never bothered my sensitive skin. It's perfect to use under the bare minerals foundation & keeps my makeup perfect all day.

This product is somewhat greasy feeling, I personally do not like it in conjunction with the mineral foundation. It's make the foundation patchy and appears to make the foundation oxidize.

This is by far the BEST foundation primer I'be found. It is easily applied and has so much in the container. It wears really well. It's great for any skin types. I would buy this product again, I am just so satisfied with it.

I love it. It makes my skin feel incredibly soft and smooth. I apply it before I put on my makeup and it really makes a difference! My makeup stays on longer and it doesn't melt off my face.

This is the primer that I am currently trying out and so far so good. You do not need a whole lot of this, and it makes your skin super smooth. I absolutely love it.

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?
