    This product is great. It makes my skin feel like silk, enhances the coverage of my foundation and doesn't irritate my very sensitive, rosecea-prone skin.

                            BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 would be suitable for sensitive skin. We would also suggest consulting with a physician if you are concerned about any of the listed ingredients in this product.

                            This is possible, however please note that the purpose of this item is to be used underneath a foundation as a primer. In addition, this item contains active ingredients which we cannot confirm will work well with the other brand's product.

                            Hi,
                            Thank you for your question. The multi-tasking BB primer-cream immediately diminishes the appearance of discoloration, uneven skin-tone and imperfections while providing Broad Spectrum SPF 30. The silky smooth formula also helps with flaky dryness, excess oil and helps to diminish the appearance of pores for a flawless foundation application. Licorice root is a know antioxidant that supports and helps protect skin from environmental stressors and helps balance oil, which is great for oily skin. Hope this information helps with your question.

                            I would recommend Tan if you're your darkest skin tone right now, Medium if you are a bit lighter. Either one would work great for you!
