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.

Very greasy feeling. I have tried the elf primer too and it's even greasier, so Prime Time is better than that, but I've had this product for 3 years and have only used it 3 or 4 times. I don't like it.

I have tried this primer before. It worked well. I like that it exfoliates at the same time it moisturizes. It went on smooth and helped my foundation stay fresh the entire day.

Im not sure if i received a bad batch but it just didn't work and felt it was completely HYPED. It made my face dry-ER and tight. I prefer my face without this product.

I love this stuff! It's so easy to apply and blends well. I have very oily skin, and this keeps the oil at bay while setting my makeup, and it looks and feels very natural.

Great if you have normal skin but if your skin is dry it makes the make make it more viable and if your oily then it works great for a few hours but then your skin looks very shiny.

I love the Bare Minerals Prime Time face primer! I use this each morning before applying the Bare Minerals foundation and I love how it makes my pores appear smaller and more even.

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?
