Great product. Horrible delivery system! I really like this product but something needs to be done about the packaging. Based on the number of negative reviews, I am not the only person experiencing problems. Is BE listening to the customer reviews? 02/02/2016
I love this product, except for the pump. Since the pump doesn't work, I am giving this four stars. Although, this product deserves five for what is inside of the bottle. I absolutely love this product and this is my third bottle that I have ordered. It has great coverage and I find myself using less foundation, which prolongs the life of my makeup. I have very sensitive skin and Bare Minerals is the first product line that I have used that does not irritate my skin or make me break out. I don't mind that I have to untwist the bottle to access the product. Although, the packaging could use some work. Overall, I would recommend this product! 01/19/2016
I HATE THE PACKAGE I absolutely love this product. I feel like it is way too expensive but I love it anyway. However, I am tired of wasting my money on it when I cannot get it out. It doesn't come through the sprayer and because of the package you have no way of getting it all out. I have bought 3 bottles and they all do the same thing. I will not be using it again until they change this flaw. 01/06/2016
Prime Time I really like this product, but don't like the bottle it comes in. The pump does not work. Even if you shake it many times, it still doesn't come out. It's to thick for small spray. I feel I am not getting full use of product. I hope manufactors of BE reads these comments about this product and will change the container it comes in so customers get full use of their product. I see most reviewers are saying same thing about bottle, so hope some changes will be made 12/26/2015
Loved this product but will never buy again Really like the finish and texture of this product. Works great alone for a more casual day and really incredible under a foundation (or tinted moisturizer). However, the pump malfunctions 1/3 times leaving you to wipe the splattered primer from your mirror to a primer on the floor that shot out 15 feet away. I've tried the tester bottle at Sephora and two others that I purchased... they ALL had this malfunction on the first or second pump. 12/13/2015
the best primer and daily sunscreen I ever have. My skin is super oily and easy breakout, but this is the only one that not make my skin worse. it has spf30 degree sunblock and it won't cause me breakout. I use alot as sunscreen with Bare Minerals orginal foundation(spf15) and minerals veil(spf25). 12/02/2015
new packaging PLEASE The product itself is wonderful - but the packaging has to go ...be aware you will loose about 30% of the product because you simply can't get it out of the bottle. I have had some separation issues as well. Please BE - listen to your customers & make some improvements here - we don't like throwing money away. I won't buy again until this issue is resolved. 11/25/2015
PLEASE change the packaging! I would have given the product itself five stars. It has a beautiful finish, provides a decent amount of coverage (enough to wear alone on the weekend), and blends in smoothly and flawlessly. However, as many others have said, the pump stops working within about two weeks and just sputters product out everywhere, making a mess. Having to mix and scoop out product shouldn't be happening at this price point. It would be so much better in a squeeze tube. PLEASE change it, I love the product but can't in good conscience rebuy with the horrible packaging. 11/15/2015
Feels good Love the silky feel on my face. Helps my foundation last and look better. I do have to agree with most of the other reviews that the pump bottle needs to be changed. It starts to spray almost right away and it sprays on my bathroom wall. Very aggravating. I returned the first bottle thinking it was defective but then the next bottle did the same. I have to open the bottle and get it off that way. Please fix this issue. 11/01/2015
Dried my skin out :( The color and application was great. However, it dried my face out around my nose and on my chin. I'm not prone to dry skin either. I have very normal skin. I used the original primer before this and will be switching back to that (it's awesome for me). 10/20/2015

Details: 
I currently use bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 in Bare Linen (03) and translucent Mineral Veil after. I have hyperpigmentation splotches on my forehead that I'm continually trying just about everything to either get it to go away and/or cover it. So I've been adding more layers of the serum which isn't really doing the trick, then I came across this product. So I have two questions that if anyone can give some feedback on would be much appreciated:

1) What is the best color choice for light skin (the video mentioned only two shades, yet four seem to be available), is it fair (versus light)?

2) Has anyone used this BB Primer-Cream for a similar skin issue (hyperpigmentation-dark spots, etc.)?

Thanks in advance for your beauty expertise. Love bareMinerals!

I'm not why the person below answered that way. This is for the Bb primer.

Anyways, I have really bad rosacea. Face turns red purple right in the center. Try looking at their new Rescue gel. Might work better for you.

As for this primer if you are light go with the light. Unless you are cool toned. Light is very yellow. Will not work for those very light with pink tones.

These Q & A's are about the Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer which only comes in one shade. It looks peach but the color does not show on your skin: it blends out clear.

Can you use the bb primer cream product with complexion rescue? If so do you use bb primer first then complexion rescue? Or complexion rescue first ( sense it's more of a mouistizer/sunscreen) then the bb primer?
I want to get the best look - not cakey- and have combo oily skin. I have trouble with the cr and mineral veil alone, doesn't seem to last past 4 hrs or so......
And I absolutly love the bb primer cream...

A: 
Any primer always goes on before the foundation, not after. I think the problem you're having with Complexion Rescue not lasting long is the fact that you have oily/combination skin: Complexion Rescue is a hydrating (moisturizing) foundation. Hydrating is part of the name, in fact. You probably need to look for a different foundation. I hope this helps.

I wear Golden tan or Golden dark foundation depending on how much sun I've gotten. So I'm worried tan in the BB Primer may be too light for me.

Really love the BB cream but hate how the product separates and how you need to use a q-tip to get the rest of the product out when it's getting near empty. I can't seem to get it to come up through the pump no matter how much I shake or stir.
