      This is the Primer I was waiting and longing for! The Primer is lightweight, and the Bare Minerals makeup stays in place over it all day and into the evening. I am using much less Bare Minerals foundation too.

      Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

      I have only used a drug store primer before and it was really light feeling so I was surprised at how this primer feels heavier and a bit greasy. I know it's not greasy because it doesn't cause breakouts but it feels like it. When I finish this product I'm going to try another type to see what the differences are.

            I have been experimenting with several primers and keep coming back to this one. I have big pores and this makes them look less noticeable under my foundation. I have tried several of the bm primers and this is my favorite.

            this isn't my favorite bareminerals primer, but I do like it. it's great for neutralizing redness. however, it smells like paint.

              I don't wear a lot of makeup and this is lightweight, doesn't take much time to apply, and helps what little I do apply stay on longer.

                  I buy Bare Minerals because I have chemical sensitivities. The original is fine, but this smelled bad. I'd bought it because it was recommended by Ulta staff.

                  When I tried to exchange it for the original, I had to pay extra because my coupon had expired. Not happy, Ulta. Will probably buy direct from Bare Minerals now.

                  Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

                  I bought this having previously used and loved the original primer from Bare Minerals. I have some redness and thought the neutralizing formula might help to correct the redness as well as serve as a primer. But I think I'll go back to using the original formula. I like the coverage and staying power of the original and didn't notice really any added color correction with the "neutralizing primer".

                      • Q:

                        I have the regular Prime Tome primer, now you have a neutralizer. Are they the same and do you use both? The consistency of the regular seems thicker.

                          A:

                          We would recommend using one or the other, rather than using both together. The Neutralizing formula features a yellow tint that works great to cancel out skin redness, if that is a concern!
