      Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

      I have combination skin and have some very oily areas on my face I really like this because it keeps my foundation set all day long and doesn't feel like an oil slick on my face. It will not cause you to have any acne breadouts and makes your skin feel better.

                Use alono with matte powder bare essentials. Keeps face from being shiny most of the day. May have to "freshen" up once or twice depending on heat. Helps makeup stay put.

                    Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

                    I decided to try this since I started using bare minerals. It left white streaks on my face after it dried. It made my face tingle and itch. I usually use I man's undercover agent face primer. I guess I will be going back to that.

                      After searching high and low for a great primer, I finally fell in love with this one to help reduce shine while balancing my skin tone (without causing breakouts). I cannot say enough great things about this product!!!!

                      However, if you're looking for a fuller coverage primer, definitely check out Bare Essentials tinted primer :)

                            Not oil based like some primers that leave your face shiny. This has a matte effect that tones down any oiliness. Pump gives a certain amount which I love instead of having to judge how much product I am using.

                              I have excess oil in the t-zone area of my face only. Should I use the original or oil control prime time?

                                If excess oil is a concern, we do recommend using Prime Time Oil Control. It works great for combination skin like yours!

                                Prime Time Oil Control is designed to extend the wear of your makeup as well as to control excess oil and provide a lasting matte finish. We recommend reading the product ratings and reviews. This product can also be tested at your nearest ULTA store, if you prefer:

                                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.

                                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.
