Most Helpful Positive Review A MUST HAVE
I absolutely and completely have fallen in love with this primer. I live in Colorado so my skin gets really dry just in the winter leaving me with a combination skin type. I easily get too oily but also get super dry and flaky. At first I tried the smashbox primer+moisturizer and I personally hated it for my skin type it didn't moisturize very well and it didn't work well as a primer covering my pours. So I felt like it didn't do either. Then I tried all the urban decay primers and they seemed like they were better for oily skin really good coverage but sucked everything out of my skin so it started cracking and the product was soooooo thick. Then I came across this and it has been absolutely perfect not thick like urban decay but not too light like a moisturizer. It covers and hydrates perfectly and its GREAT for combination skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review Bare Minerals Primer
I used the previous primer from last year. It was a much lighter primer and also had SPF in it. This one to me feels heavy, like a night cream, doesn't really help the makeup go on smoothly, nor does it have an SPF in it.
I did not expect this from this company, and was disappointed in the product.

I have EXTREMELY dry skin + I live in a dry climate, so my skin is constantly losing moisture. I love this primer. It locks in my moisturizer and helps my makeup go on smoother. Will definitely be buying again.
Little goes a long way
Mom 2 all from Riverside, CA
I only use a drop at a time and it smooths out perfectly. This primer allows my foundation and powder to adhere and looks fresh all day.
Works so well - hydrates dry skin
RLES from WI
I've used this now all winter because the regular primer let my BarePro liquid foundation settle into my flaky skin and looked awful. This moisturizing primer on top of my moisturizer in the morning allows me to put makeup on and feel good!
Stephanie from Ga
I bought this primer because my Ulta was out of the prime time original by bare minerals. It makes my foundation look pretty good but it doesn't hold up on my eyes. My mascara is smudging on my eye lids and my eye shadow seems to melt off. I went back to the prime time.
SherryR from Belleville, IL
I purchased this a month ago and have been using daily under my Original foundation. It offers a little smoothing but not enough hydration. I wish bareMinerals would offer more products for dry complexions.
MimiS from Lexington KY
I purchased this product a few weeks ago and I love it! ❤️ It makes your makeup look flawless!
My first primer
LK from Ogden UT
I had never used a primer before, so was not sure what to expect. I don't notice a big difference, but at least now I know I probably don't need this.
Joyce from Ocean Springs Mississippi
Thick and hard to message into my face. I had to use a bunch to cover, The tube is small, so with the amount I had to use it wouldn't last long.
Not what I expected
LuvMakeup45 from NJ
I ordered this primer as I already have the barePro liquid foundation which I love and wanted to try these together so since the weather isgetting colder and my skin is getting pretty dry. This is not as hydrating as I thought it would be. If you have dry skin you will still need a good moisturizer and probably serum under this. Also I find it a bit hard to rub into the skin as it is pretty thick. It didn't do anything for some dry flakey areas on my nose it also didn't feel very smoothing either. I'm giving it 3 stars because it's not terrible just not what I thought it would be
The only face primer I would purchase repeatedly!
Granny Sue from Tucson, AZ
I loved this product from the start. I feel naked without it.
JoJo12 from Oregon
This moisturizes and then feels like your is has nothing on it just perfect. The best primer that bare minerals makes
Does not hydrate
Michelle0210 from MN
I just bought this hoping for added moisture. It was hard to blend and my skin actually feels more dry using it today than my usual primer.
Didn't do much
Grandma from Lee's Summit, Mo.
This Primer has hydration built into it, which a good. That said, it didn't do much as far as fine lines are concerned.
A MUST for dry skin
Tamdarling3 from Nashville
I apply this primer immediately after my serum and moisturizer, then let dry for a few before applying makeup. It helps my dry, flakey areas and helps my makeup stay on all day!
Locks in the Moisture
Colie123 from Richmond, VA
I have exceedingly dry skin. Like crocodile dry. This primer really helps lock in moisture and creates a nice smooth layer before I start building the rest of my makeup.
Dry skin must have
Rogelio from Minnesota
A little goes a long way for this, but the finish is gorgeous. I personally have very sensitive dry skin and this caused no irritation and none of that strange flaky/ball up of product.
Tania from Oxnard
Great product. Highly recommended
Beatriz from California
I absolutely love this primer! It is pretty thick but I love it because it feels like a moisturizer and primer all in one! It applies evenly and a little goes a long way. It is a bit sticky so it helps with the foundation to stay on all day! My skin feels so amazing and smooth!
Tacky and Greasy feel
Kira C. from Philadelphia
What can I say, it does what a primer is supposed to do so I gave it 3 stars, but I don't like how it feels. I'm almost sure it makes me break out. Of course there is a multitude of things that could also be making me break out, but I definitely break out more when I use this product. I have dry skin and some psoriasis on my hairline, which led me to try a hydrating primer, but I won't be buying this one again. The gross, tacky feeling I get from it is too unpleasant, even though my foundation looks good on top of it.
Easy smooth application
71s the number from Berlin CT
I've been using this product for about a month. Hydrating but not oily. Goes on smoothly and I only need a little to apply to my entire face.
Avanti from Ohio
This primer helps my makeup stay all day and also helps to smooth out my skin to allow a beautiful application. The only downside is that it feels thick so I feel like I use more to cover my face.
Crustykent from Louisville, KY
I got a sample a couple of purchases ago, then I bought another. I love this product! I won't apply makeup without this!
Best for dry or combo skin
Nico212 from New York
I've been using this primer for over a year now and it's simply THE BEST. This product has excellent moisturizing properties without being oily! In the past I've had a lot of trouble finding the right primer for my skin type, (I'm dry around the cheeks/forehead and oily around the chin area.) Every primer I've tried previously has given me breakouts in the chin area. This one does not! It is a must have!

I have R.A. and Lupus. I love the moisture and primer all in one. Thank you.
A primer that really works!
kwitt11 from San Diego, CA
I used to use prime time, but then switched to good hydrations. I absolutely love this primer and don't use my complexion rescue foundation without it. It's smooth and a little goes a long way. I would definitely recommend this for someone with combinations skin like mine.
