          I don't like the spray bottle that it comes in. After a few sprays it won't come out anymore. I think it would be better in a tube.

                  Love everything about the product, but the container lacks. The pump doesn't work well nor can you get it all of it out of the bottle. The tube that comes in the initial kit is much better because you can squeeze out any amount and get almost all of it out of the tube.

                        Hello Rosie,

                        The BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer would be a good option for you in addition to a setting powder or spray to help your foundation stay put. Please also note that we recommend possibly changing your moisturizing routine as your skin may need added moisture.

                        The BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer can be applied with fingers. If you are looking to use an applicator, we recommend a brush similar to a flat foundation brush for the best application.

                        The BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer should create a barrier between your skin and the foundation, which should help prevent it from reacting with your natural oils.
