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 cake as part of a set and I am glad because I wouldn’t have tried it. It goes on super smooth, leaving a great surface to apply your makeup flawlessly.

Seriously love this primer. It goes on so smoothly and doesn't cake up like others that I've tried. Makes the Bare Minerals foundation look 10 times better.

This primer is okay. Very siliconey. It works fairly well but I don't think it's worth paying mid-range prices for when a drugstore primer does the same job.

Good primer, but it's too oily and it takes a while to be absorbed and dry. It spreads easily but I thinking it could do a better job reducing the pore looks

Smooth application. Great texture. Minimizes pores. Keeps makeup smooth and ON skin. Worth the price, product lasts a long time. A little goes a long way.

I do not like the oily consistency of this product. i have oily-combination skin so this product does not do it for me at all. Would be good for dry skin.

I really like this primer. It's very similar to Smashbox original primer and is long lasting. This one works really well with liquid or powder foundations.

This is my favorite primer! I makes my face look amazing. It can clog my pores though so I don't use it all the time. It leaves my skin feeling so smooth.

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?
