Q & A

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleasantly surprised I've never used a makeup primer before now. I decided to give this a try mainly because it was oil control. I find it goes on smoothly and dries quickly. The real surprise came from the benefit of it being oil control. I typically had to touch up my makeup mid day, especially brushing on mineral veil. But since using this product, I haven't felt like I needed to reapply mineral veil half way through the day to rid my face of shine. I will probably buy at least one more bottle of this primer before it's gone. 05/25/2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not a fan... This primer did not prep my skin like I had hoped. I've used the neutralizing primer in the past with great results. My skin has recently become more oily so I was excited to try this primer. It leaves my skin feeling dry and sticky and I don't notice any difference when applying my foundation. I do not recommend this product. 03/22/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1-day facelift! I've had this in my stash for about a year. I just ran out of my other BB cream, so I tried it. It actually tightened my skin! Everything was lifted up! You have to keep rubbing in & upward until it dries. It takes approx 15 seconds to dry & you automatically see & feel the difference! I'm 50 years old & by the way my friends acted, I looked 35! They assumed I'd had a facelift! I'm now ordering all I can afford! I'm scared now they will quit selling it! If you need tightening, oil control, help with swearing this product will help!!!! I love it!! 11/06/2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bare Minerals missed the mark on the one I have been a religious BM user for over 5 years. This product has been the biggest let down. It goes on sticky and doesn't seem to be absorbed by my skin. Halfway through the day, the product peels off and makes my skin look flaky. I have oily skin and can't tell the difference between primers for regular skin and this product. Other primers I have used in the past go on smooth and leave my face feeling soft and smooth all day with no flaky peel off. Not this one. There are much better primers out there. Don't waste your time with this mess. 10/13/2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect prep I've been using this for a couple of years now and really notice the difference when I run out/forget to apply. The product is lightweight and helps makeup apply even more flawlessly. My skin is prone to feeling oily mid-late afternoon and this helps to minimise if not remove completely on warm days. 09/18/2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must have! I love the oil control primer for my oily and sensitive skin! I apply one pump all around my face mostly focusing on my t-zone area where it gets the most oily. The product is very thin and smoothes on instantly. I think it helps provides a nice base before applying my foundation. 07/23/2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed I have oily skin so I thought this would be the perfect primer; however, that was not the case. The primer itself is weird feeling when putting it on and by lunch time my face is more oily than it would be without the primer. 06/18/2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product I order this for my daughter as a gift/stocking stuffer for Christmas and she loves it. Says that it's the best of all others that she has used or tried! 10/29/2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Oil Control Primer I have used both the original primer and the oil control primer. I like both, however, I think the oil control is the better of the two. Its light on my skin and it leaves my face feeling fresh. I definitely recommend it. 09/03/2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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

Answer: 
I wasn't sure either when I first tried the oil free primer. But I experimented and used the moisturizer first and let it dry, then applied the primer. I let it dry completely. I didn't notice any issues with my face feeling greasy. I even found I didn't have to touch up with mineral veil during the day to help with shine.

Answer: 
I have applied an oil control moisturizer and then the oil control primer and had success. I would try both out and then if you feel that it's too greasy, just use the oil control primer since it has spf in it. I would just be sure to moisturize at night.

Answer: 
I'd use the Primer alone to see how it works. I have the same skin & only use my moisturizer, then primer before my foundation

Answer: 
It sounds as if you are putting on too much. I had the same problem my 1st time. I use a drop or 2 at a time & made sure I kep moving it in an upward motion as it dried. If you put it on as a moisturizer, it won't work. Take small areas at a time. It tightens as it dries so don't overuse it.

Answer: 
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.
