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.

A bit pricey but worth it since a little bit goes a long way. Leaves skin velvety smooth without being oily. Just doesn't seem best for very active days or humid climates.

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.

This makes your face feel nice and smooth. A little goes a long way. I've found that its best if you let it sit for a few mins before applying the foundation. Doesn't clog my pores which is nice.

I use this as my face primer. I have used other products and have found i don't break out when i use this one. I feels like silk going one and a little goes a long way.

I like this primer a lot. I really like the texture. It's more of a light gel as opposed to a heavy cream texture. It helps my makeup stays fresh and last the whole day.

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.

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.

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?
