    Love the way this Prime time looks and feels. It does help the Bare Mineral powder to stay on longer. There are times I will just use prime time without anything else ! . Since it has Broad Spectrum SPF 30 it is great to wear when going outside too!

        Goes on light & smooth, blends like a dream! In the pics from the wedding we attended, which is where I wore this foe the 1st time, someone's comment was that I looked "Flawless"...I have a few sun/age spots...you couldn't even tell!

          This product does not cause breakouts. It actually improved my acne by helping to draw out black heads. I have clearer skin now and less oily. I would recommend this product to anyone.

            Was looking for a primer with sunscreen for a trip to Florida. This tinted primer is perfect - can be used with or without makeup. Goes on easily, blends well and has enough tint to wok without makeup.

              This is a great primer, but I've had problems dispensing it with two consecutive bottles. The pump only works intermittently, sometimes just splurting out, and other times barely coming out at all. I wish they would just put it in a squeeze tube.

                        Love this product. It goes on smooth, creates a great base for my mineral foundation, and keeps it in place all day. I've also used it without any foundation just to even out my skin and like the way it looks. But sure to shake the bottle really well the first few times you use it. Otherwise you'll be left with a very thick product at the bottom of the bottle.

                            It is always possible to have slight variation with shades, however this seems unusual. We recommend reaching out to the brand directly with your proof of purchase if you are concerned. Otherwise, you can return the product if you are within the ULTA return policy.

If you are looking for a confirmed non-comedogenic formula, we recommend trying the BareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer or the Prime Time Original Foundation Primer.

                            The BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 does not include the same ingredients as the neutralizing primer. This product is similar as it diminishes the appearance of discoloration, uneven skin tone and also imperfections.

                            Hello J,

                            We recommend using shade Light in the BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30.
