    Essential to make the make up smooth and even. Also helps to prolong the makeup. I wear a mask during the day with patients and it minimizes the makeup from rubbing off.

                      Hello Stanimira,

                      The BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer would be suitable for dry skin as it soothes and nourishes with plant extracts, antioxidants and vitamins C and E. We would also suggest a moisturizer before using this product.

                    Will this be a good primer for me? - I have very dry skin. For foundation I combine Bare Minerals Complexion and Clinique Moisture Surge CC cream.
                    I had been using Laura Geller's spackle as a primer, but was told this was better!

                      Prime Time Foundation Primer does not feature the specific claim noncomedogenic, nor is it claimed to be oil-free. It is preservative-free and formulated for all skin types. Here is bareMinerals' official statement regarding animal testing:

                      "Please feel at ease when using bareMinerals products as we do not test any products on animals. We also do not work with any manufacturers that do animal testing."
