        Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

        I suffer from super SUPER OILY skin. I have tried a few things but this is the only product that helps calm down the oil on my forehead. I still see a little shininess at the end of the day but it is worst if I do not use it. So I say it works well for people struggling with oily skin. My recommendations are that you buy exfoliating gloves and exfoliate your skin before applying this product. Then apply this face primer with out using any face cream or nothing like that. That helps my skin not get so oily at the end of the day when I wear make up.

        Oil Free All Day

        By SamanthaKatelyn

        from Charlotte, NC

        Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

        This primer definitely works. By the end of my 8-10 hour day, my makeup is still there with minimal oil on my face. I do like to carry my mineral powder to touch up throughout the day. However, I liked the neutralizing primer better because I have dark spots and acne scars.

        There is a lot of product left in the bottle that won't pump out. For the price I would like to be able to use every drop.

            I have tried numerous primer to try to control my very oily skin. This is one of the best. It goes on smoothly and last for a few hours before blotting is necessary.

            I use this primer under my foundation. It does make a difference! I no longer have to reapply my makeup twice a day, nor do I have to keep pressed powder with me. I do think it is expensive, but also a great product!

            Good primer. A little expensive but aren't they all. Probably my favorite one so far, I'll definitely be buying this one again.

                  A:

                  Both Prime Time Original and Prime Time Oil Control feature clear gel formulas. If you have oily skin that is prone to breakouts, we suggest using Prime Time Oil Control.

                  A:

                  Apply one pump for an even layer of this lightweight primer all over your face. You can use your fingers, or a makeup application sponge or liquid foundation brush, if you prefer. Once dry, follow with bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation.
