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 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.

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.

This product really works, but it really makes my face look & feel oily. The make-up stays on my face while wearing this product, but there are other products better than this

This is one of the best primers i have tried. It held my make-up for the entire day. Although sometimes I end up being shiny because it doesn't work well with some concealers.

Such an amazing primer for the person who hates to do their makeup. A little pricey, but you don't have to use much at all and it can still cover your entire face

I wasn't a huge fan of this primer. The application goes on smooth, but I didn't feel like it lasted all day. I found myself reapplying before I went out at night.

Helps powder foundation to stick on, but it does seem like a lot to layer over Bb cream. Unless you need serious coverage, I think this is a step you could skip.

This primer is nice underneath mineral and powder foundations. It's a silicone base that adds smoothness and fills in the pores nicely. Good for all skin types.

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?
