Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Spf 30 - null 3.9 5 66 66
the best primer yet!! wondered if i could buy by the gallon!!!! went on like a dream felt great all day!!! A WINNER 07/06/2014
Pump does not work, becomes clumpy The texture of this product is nice- smooth and creamy. It does an adequate job for a primer. I've had better ones in the past, but seeing as this is an "all in one" product, I wasn't expecting an amazing finish. The sheer color is nice- most of the time, I end up wearing this instead only- just throw it on and run out the door. The pump quick working after the first week. Now, I have to take off the top and scoop it out with my finger. Most of the product is clumpy and difficult to reach. Very poor packaging, and I probably won't be able to use all of it. 07/05/2014
Great Product I bought this in Medium color primarily because of the sun protection. I am allergic to parabens and phenoxethanol and I can use this product. It is smooth and silky. We recently returned from a vacation in Hawaii. I wore this every day (without foundation) with just a little blush. Never any sunburn and my skin looked better when I returned than when I left! For me, this is one of the best products you offer! 07/03/2014
More a concealer than a primer and useless pump Previously used the Prime Time Foundation Primer which I received in my starter kit. This is a clear, thin, silky formula that is easily spread over the face with fingers. As it is a sample size in a soft, plastic squeezable tube, I have not had any experience with how well or not its full-sized pump container functions. However I have had experience with the BB primer-cream pump container. What a mess. Initial use required pumping and pumping and pumping when eventually the one expected drop ended up being a huge amount that squirted/sprayed out all over my bathroom counter, sink and even wall missing my finger poised to receive the expected drop. Joke was the salesperson suggested I try just 1/2 a drop first. I also think that calling this product a primer is a misname. I think "concealer" would be a much better description. I use the Original powder foundation in Medium Beige and purchased the new bareSkin liquid foundation at salesperson's recommendation in 08 Bare Beige so I purchased the concealer---oops, I mean primer--in medium. I used the stem of the pump to place a very small dab on each cheek and then used my fingers to spread over my face. Even though more of the product was on my fingers than face I still obtained a very heavy coverage more like a concealer or even foundation. I also felt that if made my wrinkles, especially my forehead, appear more prominently. Applying either the Original powder foundation or the new liquid foundation over this "primer" is just too much unless you have a lot of discolorations or blemishes. I love the clear primer and will stick with it as my face just does not require that much concealer although I am hesitant about the pump bottle that it also comes in. The squeeze tube the sample comes in works great. Maybe the packaging for the full sized should be the same as the packaging used for the sample. 06/28/2014
Love it, but pump doesn't work properly! The product is great, but you have to open it up to use it. The pump pumps out the oils and leaves behind the product. change to a different packaging, please! 06/22/2014
Pump doesn't work I love the product, but the pump sprays out a liquid- when it works at all. The rest of the product is clumped up in the bottle. Please package this differently. Maybe in a tube. The spray pump just isn't the way to go with this product. I will have to scoop out with a q tip to use this. 06/18/2014
New Favorite Primer I tried a sample of this primer out of curiosity while happily using the oil control primer which I loved at the time. I could not resist completely switching over to this one! It makes my face feel really soft and smooth and also feels very light. It evens out my face so well that often times I wear it by itself. The only thing that I would change is the dispenser bottle as I have had the same issues as the other reviewers mentioned. After a month or so, it squirts out and gets everywhere and is difficult to manage. Besides that, it is a great product! 06/17/2014
bare look I love the Prime Time BB primer. Often I wear just that as it gives me a great light coverage and natural look and leaves my skin feeling wonderful.. Also, there are times when I'm my face is just too damp for anything else. 06/13/2014
A good product I am on the hunt for something perfect for my seriously broken out skin. I use Retin-a to combat acne and aging (28 yrs old) so my skin is always very dry to the point of being flaky around my breakouts. I had to stop using B.M. foundation years ago actually because of my flakiness. I had been using too faced BB cream and it was ALRIGHT, but the color was just off. I went into the store expecting to purchase the new B.M. foundation and instead left with the BB primer and pressed mineral veil with SPF 25 instead. It evens out my redness, it is a mineral spf (a BIG plus for me) and it is not making my breakouts worse. That being said, as with all products I have tried, it tends to dry out throughout the day and so by the end of the day I look a little haggard with it on. But, the ingredients are good, the SPF is desirable, and the coverage makes my skin look great (other than the broken out spots, but nothing makes that look better except time) I do wish it had a bit more buildable coverage, but that's not really the point of the product that is just my own wishful thinking. I had not even thought about the packaging until I read other reviews but yes I would agree it does tend to spit out at me from time to time, but by no means is that a deal breaker, just slightly annoying. 06/09/2014
Horrible packaging This product is wonderful. I use it for on the go skin tone evening. It is the only face makeup I wear on a daily basis and it is so smooth. It barely looks like I have anything on, but somehow it does the trick! However, the packaging of this product is a huge problem. When the pump does work, it sprays out a liquid version of the product all over the place. I do everything I can to shield it from going everywhere but at least once a week I have to change my outfit because it gets ALL over the place. Today I opened the cap to see that the substance itself is actually very thick. I think the oils in the product are falling to the bottom, leaving most of the substance behind. Although the bottle does not say to, I often shake it and tap it on the counter to try to get the pump functioning properly. This does not work. I will be opening up the lid and scooping out the product from now on, but this product desperately needs new packaging. perhaps a tube similar to toothpaste would be more efficient. Please do something about this asap. I love this product but I'm not sure I would buy it again if the packaging does not change. 06/09/2014

I liked the coverage and tint of the BB primer, but my skin broke out in several places after using it. I do not have any problems using the original primer, and would like to try one of the other primers.

You have to shake it really hard. the primer has separated, with the heavier portion in the bottom and all your getting is the thinner portion on the top. I sometimes roll the bottle between my hands to warm it up and then shake vigorously.

I had the exact same problem. I shake mine up everyday before I use it and it went back to the same creamy consistency as it was when I first bought it. Good luck. I hope you can save yours. I was able to save mine.

A: 
I would choose the light color. I called to find out which shade I should buy (I wear medium foundation) and they said medium. I love the medium color all by itself, but I don't like it under my foundation. I think it is a little dark. For winter I will order the light color.

Light would be the one for you, I am medium and use the light. I went to the Boutique and tried them both and light was the one we all decided on. I recommend going to a Bare Minerals Boutique, they have all of the knowledge about the primer and can help you make the right decision

I have tried it both ways and I find that I like it best when i put a moisturizer on and then the BB. I don't thank you need a moisturizer with SPF though - it could get oily.

A: 
I have not had any problems with sweating when using this. It is very light and I do not even notice it. I use the powder form foundation and found that to be the lightest. I tend to sweat (like a man haha) in the summertime. SO, I can vouch that this will keep your makeup on without smudges or anything. I dont know if it is considered waterproof persay, but it does not give that cake on feeling like some primers do. Hope this helps <3

Moisturizer should always go first. Primer actually keeps your moisturizers from pulling your makeup into your pores! My routine is Moisturize, Prime, Conceal, Foundation, Blush, Mineral Veil!
