    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.

        Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

        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

        By SamanthaKatelyn

        from Charlotte, NC

        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.

            I have oily skin and diff. texture of skin on my face caused by burns and the product didn't stay on those areas. Stayed on non oily areas well.
            Although I do believe it would cover well on other type skin.

              Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

              An Ulta associate recommended this to me to help cover redness on my checks and nose. It does not fully cover redness, but definitely works great in conjunction with foundation and eliminates the need for concealer. I'm unsure about how much it prolongs your makeup though, and it does take a while to dry after application.

              Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

              It's not bad, but I have a lot of sundamage on my face and it doesn't do much to cover it. It is just a primer, so I don't expect it to do all of the work, but I thought maybe using it first would be a good step.
