    Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

    I have used bare minerals powder for ten plus years along with a cc cream, thought I would try the bb primer from bare minerals. Not impressed. It has caused breakouts, tends to melt off and is overpriced. I will not buy again. It does have a nice lightweight feeling, however I don't see it correcting tone at all.

    Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

    I was hoping that this product could replace both my primer and BB cream, but unfortunately it wasn't enough coverage for me. It did help keep my makeup on for a 15 hour day, but at first the product came out to oily and liquidy and now is so clumpy I can't pump it out and have to open the top.

        Great product- I am a longtime fan of the BareMinerals line and have tried my fair share of primers. I thought this product was much smoother and easier to apply than the BareMinerals brightening primer, and the product itself supercedes my experience with any other product. It's a winner!

              I use this as a base before applying any other products. It is so light weight and natural looking. A little pricey, but that is what makes us look so great...wish it came in a larger size!

                  You can certainly layer Prime Time BB underneath bareSkin Foundation! Apply Prime Time BB to bare or moisturized skin, then follow with application of bareSkin Foundation using the Perfecting Face Brush.

                  A:

                  This product is similar to the Original, but enhanced with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to shield skin from sun damage, plus a tint to even your complexion. You'll also find that it has a creamier consistency than the Original Prime Time.

                  Medium should work well for you. If too light, apply bareMinerals Warmth All Over Face Color (Item #: 2207054) to deepen the color.
