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".

        Smell is terrible and doesn't go on smooth like other primers I have tried. Doesn't make my makeup last and have to use more then what the lady told me. I will go back to smash box primer.

              I have used Bare Minerals products for many years with great success. The Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer is wonderful and fulfills all of its claims. I love using a face primer since it creates a smooth surface for the foundation creating a more seamless look. This neutralizing primer provides a fantastic benefit by covering the rosacea on my cheeks! I highly recommend this product!

              Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

              I use PrimeTime in my cheeks and chin because that's where I have the most redness from my 20+yr history of Rosacea. I do use it after application and drying of LaRoche's Rosaliac AR Intense. The combo seems to be very effective in reducing the redness associated with Rosacea, and does not leave an oily or heavy residue' and doesn't take more than 60 seconds between the 2 for absorption and drying. Add L'oreal's Miracle Blur concealer and done...redness gone. I, of course, do apply other makeup for true "public appearances", but PrimeTime is always a part of the routine now. The yellow color is a bit scary, but once you see its miracle occur on your face you'll never look back.

                • 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!
