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

    You can only actually use about half of this product before it becomes clumpy and very hard to put on. There needs to be some way to thin it so you can get full use. That's unfortunate because I like the fact that it has sunscreen in it. I will not buy this again.

        It gave my skin a flawless look. In the florida heat I do not like heavy makeup. At 49 I look for products that don't settle into my skin and highlight the wrinkles! This left my skin looking and feeling smooth.

          I apply this after using Aveeno daily moisturizer with spf. This produxct goes in smoothly and gives a bare tint of color. Then I brush on Bare Minerals Matte powder as my foundation. This helps the powder stay.

            Every time I come to ulta and ask for help with anything in the bare minerals line I always get talked into getting something from a different line - however today I managed not to listen and went with my gut and I'm so glad I did - this product is so easy to apply and it keeps my face looking so great during the day - it doesn't make it oily and I don't get shiny after a few hours - this product feels amazing on my face, I will definitely be buying this again!

                I have been using this product for many years now and just can't be without it. It's getting harder to find the Light color. I hope they don't stop making this, because I rely on it daily and really don't know what I would do without it. It goes on so nice and smooth and looks so natural.

                    Does this product replace the neutralizing primer and work like it? I'd like to know if it has the same ingredients too. The neutralizing primer did a great job on red spots and evening tone all over.

                      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.
