    I use this right before I put on any makeup and love the bright, natural glow it gives my face. Its very portable, which I like. But a bit pricey for a small bottle.

      I use this product by itself just to cover up some of the redness I have. I always use this product under my foundation. I love the way I seem to have a glow not a shiny face.

                  What is the difference between this and the original primer?

                    A:

                    The main difference is the finish; Original Prime Time features an invisible matte finish, while Brightening Prime Time features a luminous glow finish.
