                      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!

                        A:

                        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."
