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.

My favorite primer. Very light weight and doesn't leave you face feeling caked on and greasy. Makeup stays on and goes on smoothly. Definitely a must buy

This didn't help with my makeup at all. My makeup looked the same as before use. Didn't hide any pores snd made my makeup greasy. Wouldn't recommend it.

I didn't really like this product. It made my skin feel soft but didn't really smooth my skin very much. Very silicony and felt greasy throughout the day

I love this stuff. I got BareMinerals when it first came out and no primer or moisturizer ever really worked with it. So glad they came out with this!

A bit pricey and the bottle is not too big, but the primer itself is really good and you don't need to use too much because it smooths on the face well

I really like this primer and I am on my second bottle of it. I really like how smooth it makes me skin feel and the way my foundation applies over it.

Ever put on your makeup and go out into the humidity and the next time you look in the mirror your eye makeup is on your cheeks? This prevents that...

It worked, but I still had issues with blending the loose powder foundation.

It did help clear up my skin since it kept the foundation out of my pores

Works well and really smooths out everything. It's very light and doesn't leave your face feeling heavy. Once the foundation is on it's not coming off.

It works great. I love the silky feeling it leaves on your skin. It seems to dry almost instantly leaving the perfect platform for applying foundation

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?
