      Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

      I have rosacea and sensitive skin. This product caused a SEVERE painful rosacea and acne breakout. I normally do not have any acne issues, just rosacea. I returned the product to Ulta and was given a sample of Exuviance AntiRedness Calming Serum and that helped my skin immensely. I would not recommend this neutralizing primer if you have rosacea and/or sensitive skin.

            Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

            I gave this 4 stars because even though it does keep my makeup in place (I use bare minerals foundation) I feel like it doesn't keep the shine away all that much. Don't get me wrong, without it, I'd be a greasy mess and this does help but I only bought it because of a suggestion from a sales consultant in the store. I had originally had my mind set on 2 other primers and something tells me I probably should've went with my gut. Like I said, not a total fail but then again, I have VERY VERY VERY oily skin. It's extremely hard to sustain a "matte" look on my face even after a few hours.

              Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

              I really wanted to try a primer to calm down the red tones on my cheeks. I have Lupus & the red 'butterfly'cheeks are a symptom. Anyway, I do love Bare Minerals and their foundations/powders are one of the only brands to give me nice coverage of the red. That said, I really hated this primer because it made my pores look HUGE and gross. I also felt the texture was a little too dry. I use thick moisturizer (Philosophy TIAB), but this actually made my makeup look thick and cakey. The coverage of the red was only so-so. I returned it today and bought Ulta brand flawless finish primer, which I tried in a sample and loved the coverage and consistency (and price).

              Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

              This primer is my absolute favorite! I use other primers other days and wish I hadn't. This primer works so amazingly (if that's a word) it fills in my pores SO well, and my pores are pretty big. It cancels out my redness and my makeup looks so good afterwards. I will buy this for forever (:

                I have mild Rosecea and this primer removes all the excess "pinkness" from my cheeks! A little goes a long way so it does not feel heavy on my skin, either.

                    I suffer from redness (undiagnosed rosacea). I have tried different primers but this one calms the redness so it doesn't show through the makeup. It doesn't make me breakout and it's super lightweight. I bought this primer by accident. It was a blessing in disguise. I recommend to anyone with redness. This is absolutely amazing.

                    This is the Holy Grail for Dark Spots

                    Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

                    I have dark spots and acne scars that I couldn't keep covered when using the original primer or oil control primer. Once I found this, my face was noticeably more evened out, the redness reduced, and my dark spots less noticeable. In combination with the bare minerals powder foundation and bisque concealer, I can get medium to full coverage that lasts all day!

                    It is a little oily and yellow. It seemed pretty good when the sales person applied it. I don't use it.

                    • 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!
