Not For Me

By Hilda

Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

I have oily skin so this product was not for me. It did not control the oils from surfacing so my skin looked shiny and it didn't seem to hide my pores very well. My local store was out of or maybe it's discontinued, the bare minerals oil control primer. The oil control primer worked well on my skin so if u have oily skin, I would definitely recommend this one instead. The oil control primer also went on smoother than the BB one.

          I use this product daily under the original power foundation. I love how easily it goes on and even with the tint, it's not heavy. It just manages to even out my skin tone a little before I apply the foundation. Haven't been outside enough yet to test the effectiveness of the SPF, but I still love this stuff!

                      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.

                      Depending on the shade of your skin, we would suggest trying the medium if you are currently wearing beige.

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.
