Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

This is the best foundation I've used. I use Clinique foundation as a concealer for my redness because BM is smooth medium coverage and doesn't quite cover the red. Clinique is a bit more thick, but overall this foundation & primer is hands down, the best.

            This primer is amazing and is really good as a base to makeup or just to wear on its on because it is tinted and has minimal light coverage. However! This caused my adult breakouts to return after being gone for months! So yeah.

                This product acts much like a foundation for 50+ skin types. It is light & goes on smooth. It can be used alone for with other products. It does not look heavy or over done.

                  I have oily sensitive skin - living in Arizona my foundation melts off especially in the 110 degree summers! This primer is great at helping my makeup stay in place. It's not super expensive, it's long lasting, and does it's job. That being said there are other more expensive brands that I do like better, however for every day use - this one is great.

                  • Q:

                    I have this and also the original foundation in Light for winter. But in summer generally use the medium powder foundation. Should I also switch to the medium primer or will it be to dark?

                      Light may still work for you if you are tanning in the summer. We recommend trying Light underneath your Medium foundation before purchasing Medium to see if it is right for you.

                    Previously, I used your Prep Step for a Primer with SPF 50. I cant seem to find it anymore so I'm wondering if this would work similarly just with tint.

                    Are the only differences between this and the Prime Time Original Foundation Primer that this is tinted and has SPF? Does it feel the same and perform the same as the Prime Time Original Foundation Primer under powder foundation? I have used the the Prime Time Foundation Primer and loved it. I like the idea of adding tint and SPF, but only if it feels and performs the same. Thanks.
