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

            I was looking for a more affordable option to replace my Dr. Jart+ BB Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm. While the bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 has the same ingredients as the aforementioned, it is in no way an acceptable replacement. I purchased the light, which was too dark; the fair was too light. Although it blends well enough, the coverage is poor. It did not provide any assistance in minimizing discoloration and seemed to highlight problem areas. This comes in a small bottle with a pump that often clogged. I much prefer being able to control the amount of product I use, which you cannot do if you use the pump. That being said, the top does twist off, but it's not convenient to do that each time. I also found that I broke out more when using this product. I generally felt greasier and was constantly wiping at my face to absorb the excess oil. All in all, this product was not for me.

                              We are not sure which product you are referring to to accurately provide a suggestion. Our best guess would be Medium. We recommend hovering over each shade/bottle to view the swatch to compare your current shade.

                              We recommend using either before your foundation application. Both do not have to be used, but if you do plan on using both, we recommend using them before your foundation and makeup application for the best results.

                              The BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 should prolong the wear of your foundation and combat excess oil. Please note that it does not claim to be waterproof and or sweat resistant.

                              We recommend trying shade Medium in the BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30. The brightening primer as compared, improves the appearance of the skin and luminosity without a tint. Please note that tinted primer does not tailor to specific undertones, only shades of skin.
