Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer
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!
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!
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.
