Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer
I love this product!
Keeps away oil and shine! In combo with bare minerals matte foundation makes my skin appear flawless!
For my skin, the oil-control primer is just right. I've tried both the original primer and the oil-control primer. The regular one left my skin greasy, but the oil-control primer does not feel greasy at all and provides a nice even surface on which to apply mineral foundation. My only complaint is the bottle. The pump works great for a week or so but then becomes clogged. I constantly have to soak it in hot water and it still does not pump. I would be much happier with a squeeze bottle of some kind.
This was the only BM product that broke me out
I have really sensitive skin and I research carefully about what I put on my skin, but I was very disappointed to see the results of this item. It broke me out in little zits around my nose and my t-zone, which is where I really would like to be less oily and more silky and smooth.
I love Bare Minerals but I'd like to see something with less ingredients and a more natural position
I have very oily skin and was so happy when I saw this product. I purchased it right away. I put it on my skin the same way as the original primer. It dried quickly and made my face feel tight. It left flakes and uneven patches. I am going to try and return it to the store. I do not recommend it. My face did fine with original.
I absolutely love this primer. I have trouble with my T-zone area and this product keeps the shine away! I have tried to regular primer, but it does not keep the shine away like this one. I would highly recommend this product.
Works well for me
So far I have no complaints after about a weeks worth of use. I didn't bother to read the reviews before I actually ordered this primer so I was very nervous to try it. My skin isn't overly oily, mainly just in the T zone. It doesn't feel like any other primer I've used, normally they are very silicone-y feeling and make your skin feel very silky, not this one, it gives you more of a matte feel to your skin, it is thinner but not watery. One pump is all you really need, I apply to my forehead, over my nose/tops of my cheeks and what I have left I put on my chin, you have to work fast because it does dry fairly quick. I haven't seen any of the white marks people have commented about, I am just sure to apply evenly.
I have noticed my bare minerals foundation does wear much better and longer through out my day, and my forehead isn't near as oily as it was before. Gets a 5 for my rating!
i'm not too thrilled about this. the oil slick patch i have going on right in between my eyes BEAMS thru this primer and my foundation. its supposed to be oil control but honestly i don't see a huge difference between this and the original.
I bought this primer since a good friend of mine recommended this. She too has oily skin so I decided to try this. Sadly, this was no good for me. It applies to thick and feels heavy on my skin compared to the regular primer (which I love more). It makes my face feel the makeup rather than the feeling of wearing none. Also my skin is a lot more oily than it was before using this.
I got this since I have always had issues with oily skin (which is why i switch to powdered foundations) and this product does amazing things! My face feels significantly less oily at the end of the day and I am no longer "shiny" by mid-day!
I gave this only 4 stars because the squirt mechanism is tricky, so you have to be careful when pumping. Also the primer has a watery feel when applied that takes some adjusting to, and it drys really quickly, meaning you have to spread fast to get everything covered!!!
Over all it's a great product that I'll definitely be getting again!
Goes on so silky! Instantly mattifies skin and doesn't quit! It also smoothes your face so you are ready for makeup application and keeps makeup in place all day and night! Love! Works great combined with the loose foundation, concealer, and mineral veil!
