I LOVE this Prep Step. I use it daily over Bare Haven moisturizer and it absorbs quickly and is not greasy. Keeps my makeup looking fresh all day.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer MARVELOUS
I purchased this in store before a 2 week trip to the British Virgin Islands. 15 minutes in the sun and I am burned. This worked MARVELOUSLY. I re-applied after swimming and did Not burn. I have used it under makeup and as long as you Shake it Well, it goes on smoothly under makeup.

I really enjoy using this sunscreen/primer! For a long time I used a moisturizer with light sun protection and have decided to step up to a higher protection product. This product does not negatively affect makeup application like many sunscreens I have tried. I feel the one downside is the price.
Rated 3 out of 5 by G26GS not sure how to use this product
I like this product and how it protects me from the sun as I work outside as a crossing guard and am in the elements. But how should I properly use this product? Do I use it before the skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion and Bare Haven moisturizing cream or after? Please help!
Rated 3 out of 5 by therapylady Good Sunscreen, disappointing texture
I use this daily as my facial sunscreen and am happy with the sun protection benefits. However, I do not like the texture of this product. It feels like I am rubbing oily grit on my face. More than likely, I will not repurchase this product as I have difficulty getting past the feel of it on my face.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMY78 Love this!
I got this about a week ago and have been using it everyday. Here's a list of the things I love about it....
Great sun protection
Healthy for your skin
Skin feels smooth and ready for make-up
Absorbs quickly and is not greasy at all
Doesn't sink into pores for find lines
I love this and will definitely continue to wear it!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Tint is too pink and whitening.
So, I made an account just so I could review this goshdarn product lol.
As a sunscreen, it's amazing. It's the only non-greasy mineral-based SPF I've ever come across, and it also seems to smooth out the look of imperfections when your skin is properly hydrated. BUT, from a makeup-standpoint, it sucks for skin tones that aren't super pale with pink undertones.... It's not possible to apply the recommended quarter-sized amount to the entire face without looking like a goon. Plus there's no instructions for use on the Canadian box, so I don't really know how much I'm supposed to apply.
I tried mixing it with La Roche Posay's Anthelios Mineral at a 2:1 ratio because it's very olive-toned, but still a few shades too dark for me, but the Bare Minerals Prep Step still made my face too pink :( My heart weeps for all the darker-toned ladies out there, unable to use this fine product.
Pleeeaaaaaaaase make this in different shades for different skin colours!!! It's too good to not be widely available!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Holy grail product
I have been on an endless search for a sunscreen that is a physical sunscreen and that isn't greasy or cause break outs and I have finally found it! I love this sunscreen. It's perfect. It works to protect, super easy application and I can feel comfortable in the sun knowing my skin will be ok once I take it off with no added break outs or reactions of any kind. This has been the sunscreen I've been looking for. Thank you BM! I just use this and another tinted moisturizer on top, some blush and gets compliments on my skin all the time!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gmab Wonderful!
It's been very sunny and in the high 90 degrees here in my state and as I'm fair skinned I needed some good sunscreen for my face and neck. My neck especially always gets instantly red. Usually with sunscreen on my face and then with also my BM powder foundation on top seems to just become tacky and yuck and clogs my pores after a day in the sun so decided to give this prep & prime a go and wow!! Love this stuff! It works really well as a sunscreen and a primer. I was outside this entire weekend and it was so hot and humid and my make up held up great and no sunburn at all!! SO happy!
Rated 2 out of 5 by B1uebird Settles in my large pores and accentuates them, even under makeup
This is a thin, white cream that applies fairly easily. I only use Bare Minerals makeup and I wanted to love this natural sunscreen, but it settles into my pores and makes them very visible, even under Bare Minerals makeup. I'll save it for when I am working in the yard and it doesn't matter how I look. (It leaves a slightly white film on my face too, although this I can hide with makeup.)
