    Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer:

    I have never used Bare minerals products before. I saw something on Pinterest about this and thought I will try it. I have used about every brand of primers you can think of: smashbox, stila, the porefessional by benefit you name it all have broke me out. This is the only one that does not break me out and makes my face look so smooth. I have combination skin but more on the oily side and it works for me. Love it!!

                I love this primer! It makes my bare minerals foundation look flawless. But I do wish it was a bigger bottle, seems a little pricey for such a small bottle. But it's a great primer!

                      I was a little hesitant about getting a primer since I rather go for amore natural look but this product is great since it tis very lightweight and it does not feel like you are wearing an extra layer. It smooths skins and makes it look healthy and soft to touch. It goes super well with Bare Mineralas Complexion Rescue for a good coverage but still natural and healthy look :)

                      • Q:

                        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."
