        Great product for the face but wouldn't recommend use around eyes for people with sensitive skin. Application feels like water then when dry creates a great matte finish for any foundation.

                I use this as a primer because I have pores and oily skin. All day oil control and a flawless finish. I don't have a bad thing to say about this product! Bare minerals hit it out the ball park when they made this primer. I like useing the same brands together so it's good with the foundation.

                  I have bought the original in the past and liked it. I however have oily skin and thought this would help. Instead it dryed my skin out horribly. Wouldn't recommend.

                    I have combination skin and have some very oily areas on my face I really like this because it keeps my foundation set all day long and doesn't feel like an oil slick on my face. It will not cause you to have any acne breadouts and makes your skin feel better.

                            If excess oil is a concern, we do recommend using Prime Time Oil Control. It works great for combination skin like yours!

                            Prime Time Oil Control is designed to extend the wear of your makeup as well as to control excess oil and provide a lasting matte finish. We recommend reading the product ratings and reviews. This product can also be tested at your nearest ULTA store, if you prefer:

                            Both Prime Time Original and Prime Time Oil Control feature clear gel formulas. If you have oily skin that is prone to breakouts, we suggest using Prime Time Oil Control.

                            Apply one pump for an even layer of this lightweight primer all over your face. You can use your fingers, or a makeup application sponge or liquid foundation brush, if you prefer. Once dry, follow with bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation.
