Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE 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. 01/09/2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 12/31/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works well 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. 12/09/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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! 11/27/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. 09/28/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 Drys fast Doesn't sink into pores for find lines I love this and will definitely continue to wear it! 08/17/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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! 08/14/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!! 07/24/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! 07/11/2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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.) 06/22/2016

Should this follow the moisturizer portion of the 3 step skincare regimen? If so should there be time between the two applications?

Answer: 
My skin tends to be kind of dry in my t-zone so I would probably still add a moisturizer. That's just for me personally, you might not need it.

Answer: 
Its best to apply with fingers. Wait for maybe 10 mins before you apply foundation. Allow the product to dry and settle in a little bit

Answer: 
I use my fingers to blend it in smoothly. I was told by a BM associate that you only need to wait about 30 seconds for it to absorb before applying foundation. (I do sometimes stagger my routine to give myself a minute or more, but that's just me.)

Answer: 
I'm sensitive to scents and don't notice anything. (But of course, that's no guarantee that you won't...) You can always return it if you do, but it's amazing enough that it may be worth a try. (Seriously, I've been looking for years for a sunscreen like this.) And it just got the highest ranking by the Environmental Working Group in their annual sunscreen guide. Good luck!

I use a separate moisturizer first and then the sunscreen. I personally do not think this product offers enough moisture to act alone.
