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.

For me, this product was no up to par. It left my face really dry. I previously had a problem controlling oil but it this took it way over the top.

I liked this product okay. It was one of those that I could have done without, or continued to use. It wasn't a life saving product. It was decent.

I wasn't fond of this primer. I'm not big on the gel-like primers, I prefer sprays. I felt like this caused my makeup to shift around and come off.

This primer is alright. It does it’s job, but my main problem with it is that the bottle is hard to use and often puts our way too much product...

I didn't have a good experience with this primer. I wanted to love it, but it made my pores look huge & my face was super oily after using this.

I love bare minerals, but I have to say this primer did not do anything for me. It left my skin sticky and itchy. did not help with my oily skin

This primer should win every single makeup award ever! I cannot put my makeup on without this product. My face might stage a protest if I tried.

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?
