Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer 3.5 5 49 49
Perfect bottom layer! After I wash and dry my face, I apply Oil Control Prime Time. It is the only face "base coat" that doesn't make my skin break out. It almost has a bit of a moisturizing affect for my skin. And, of course, it keeps my makeup in place! Highly recommend to anyone, especially those with problem/sensitive skin! 05/26/2014
Works Well but Packaging Does Not I really like this product, and do feel a difference when I apply it. In combination with other products, it does keep my oil at bay- which I love! However, with this packaging it is SO difficult to control how much comes out of the pump. Sometimes the mechanism does not work, and I get way more product than I need, so I feel like I am wasting it. Would give it five stars if the packaging was changed to make the amount more controllable! 05/07/2014
I love this product! Keeps away oil and shine! In combo with bare minerals matte foundation makes my skin appear flawless! 04/16/2014
Pretty Good 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. 04/09/2014
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 04/05/2014
Not happy 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. 03/13/2014
Oil control 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. 03/11/2014
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! 02/01/2014
ehhhh 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. 12/19/2013
Disappointed 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. 12/06/2013

Is this product okay for people that have acne prone skin and any ingredients that might be pore-clogging. Also I was wondering what other products are good for acne prone skin?

A: 
I have acne prone and sensitive skin and this product has never broke me out. I even asked a makeup specialist at the store (bare escentuals) and she told me that it wouldn't break me out. I was concerned with this issue myself as I did not want to spend this much money on something that was going to break me out. I've used it many, many times over this last year and have never had a problem. Also, it seems with me that anything that has any type of "paraben" in the ingredients ends up breaking me out, so I don't buy stuff that has that in there.
