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 face primer is my second favorite! It is easy to use, keeps my powder intact and goes on smooth. I love that it doesn’t feel oily, or dry out my skin!

I have tired several samples of this product and have better luck with other primers than this one for helping my foundation stay all day and look good.

Received their primer in a gift set in a travel size. Once I run out in buying the full size! Leaves my skin so soft and my makeup stays put all day long!

I really cannot wear the primer. Your skin cannot breathe, it clogs my skin up.. I wouldn't even give it one star....sorry, cause I do like Bare Minerals.

The clear primer of this brand is very similar to smashbox photo finish. I love both of them. Works great, doesn't irritate my skin, and there is no smell.

I love this because it preps my face well for powder and helps the makeup initially stick to my face. I'm not sure it helps the makeup stay all day though.

Love it! A perfect base for your face that keeps it hydrated throughout the day and also allows your make up to go on smoother and last throughout the day!

This is a gel product and I did like it when I used it. The downside is it was expensive when I was using it. Remember also that a little goes a long way.

This primer is definitely one of the best. It makes my
skin feel really smooth and makes any foundation go on a lot better. I will be repurchasing this.

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?
