Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Spf 30 - null
Can't apply my makeup with out it.
I love BM products but I never used the foundation primers because I didn't see any difference when using them. I have changed my mind since I started using the BB Primer Cream. I absolutely love how my skin feels when using this product. My makeup lasts so much longer and I don't feel oily after wearing it all day. For some occasions the tint of the primer is enough that I don't need to wear foundation. I have never had a problem with the pump on my bottle though I always make sure there is no product left on the nozzle to clog it.
Great product except for one thing
I absolutely love the prime time bb primer-cream daily defense broad spectrum spf 30. I have an allergy to coconut and its derivatives so I have to be really careful with anything that I put on my skin. I've never been able to use any sunscreen product before since all sunscreen had coconut/derivatives in them. I love that this product goes on silky and feels smooth once worked into the skin. I wear this daily with a little mineral veil over it. I have very oily skin, and even when I used prime time oil control primer, my face would still look oily. With the bb primer-cream, my face stays matte-looking all day with out needing a mineral veil touch up. The only down side to the bb primer-cream, is that it dries my skin out if I wear it for too long. Sometimes my face is so dry that my skin becomes flaky. I have not had problems yet with the pump like other reviewers have had. I would recommend this product to people who need a daily light coverage who have oily skin, just be sure to moisturize while you aren't wearing it!
Great Product… Horrible Packaging
Was pleasantly surprised by this product… Goes on smoothly and keeps makeup looking fresher longer. My issue is with the packaging (which seems to be a problem for a lot of people)… The pump doesn't work with the product after the first week, and although you can take the top off to get the product out, you end up wasting quite a bit that way. They need to rethink the package to make it more usable, otherwise the product is great.
Love this primer!
Absolutely my favorite primer, hands down. I have tried the original primer, neutralizing primer and oil control primer. This BB primer is by far the best performing. It feels silky smooth to apply and does a great job to keep my oily skin in check all day. It's great to even the color and redness of my skin. Love this primer and love it more for the SPF!
The Primer to end all Primers
I love love LOVE this primer. It is so silky smooth; it applies like a dream. It has decent coverage. You can wear it alone or as a primer under the foundation. And I adore the fact that is has SPF 30. That is the highest spf Bare Minerals offers and what a wonderful product to have it in! And now that they've extended the shades, anyone is set.
Great product. Please improve packaging.
I love this product as it is a wonderful sunscreen with no irritation plus reasonable coverage and feels great on the skin. However, it is nearly impossible to get it out of the container. Bare Minerals is usually so responsive to customer feedback. Please, please improve!!
I won't use anything else
I am in absolute LOVE with this product. I refuse to wear anything else on my skin anymore. I used to suffer from TERRIBLE breakouts. Then, I switched over to Bare Minerals. At first I was using the foundation, but then I discovered this and now it's all I use. I put a drop of this on, with bronzer, blush, mineral veil, and then flawless radiance for a complete look. OBSESSED.
Needs to be in a squeeze tube
I love the coverage & protection & the smooth & silky feel. BUT the pump is useless. When is the Bare Essentials team going to listen to the feed back & change the packaging?
Did You Forget About The Dark Complexions? :(
I am a new member of the Bare Minerals family. I have adult acne prone skin that I was able to get under control with the help of my fabulous dermatologist Dr. Dans in San Francisco! It was his suggestion that I use Bare Minerals products if I were going to use any make up at all.
On my second visit to the Bare Mineral Boutique, I racked up just about $300.00 worth of products! That should tell you how much I LOVE this stuff. I particularly have an obsession with the foundation and finishing products. As a black woman, I was so happy to see that there are options for women of color. Due to the wide range of ethnic backgrounds black people are made up of, we range in many colors all over the charts from almost white to ebony chocolate! I was happy to purchase my daughter light products for her fair skin, and tan products for my golden brown complexion.
I was REALLY excited to try out the Prime Time BB Primer, because I'm not really a foundation junky, unless I'm going out for the night. I was eager, to find a prodcut that moisturized without clogging pores, and provide minimal coverage for blemishes, with broad spectrum SPF protection. Although I'm a darker complexion, broad spectrum is important to me, to prevent hyper-pigmentation of my risidual acne blemishes. I just wanted something that I can slap on in the morning, and add a little lip gloss & go!
Well, I tried the Prime Time BB Primer on in medium, and it slightly matched my complexion, but was just a tad bit too light. It kind of made my skin look ashy. I was really dissapointed. Especially considering all of the wonderful colors the foundations come in, that range all over the board from very light to very dark. I thought, what happened here?
Many people say that the darker you are, the less sun protection is needed, due to the natural high production of melanin in people with darker complexions. This may be true, but I particularly need protection to keep my acne scars from gettin worse.
I can only imagine that it would'nt be cost effective to create a primer in every shade, but I think there should at least be a LIGHT, MEDIUM & DARK.
I'd love to give this five hearts, but I'm sad that I cant use the product, and my complexion has been left out of the equation. :(
Love the product, but the packaging is terrible!
Like many other reviewers, I really like the BB Primer-Cream but hate how it's packaged! The pump worked fine for awhile, but then started squirting out oily liquid all over my counter. I don't even bother with the pump anymore and use my fingers to get it out. I would like to continue buying, but doubt I will since it's so inconvenient to use.
