Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - null 3.8 5 97 98
Primer is awesome, pump is awful! I fell in love with this primer as soon as I got it home. It gave lovely soft coverage on my aging skin and did not show laugh lines. It worked great alone or under my foundation. But after only a couple of weeks of using it the primer would no longer come out of the pump. I would have to unscrew the top and scrape out with the pump stem. This took forever and is such a waste of money and time. It is frustrating and has turned me off some of the products. I can't afford the time or the money to experiment with products that are supposed to be great from the beginning. Not taking any more chances. 04/22/2015
Agree with other poor reviews I did actually really like this product the first couple of times I used it. After using it a few times, when I pump out the product, it comes out as a watery mess. Looked inside and can see the product has separated. Guess I'll have to stop using the pump and dig the product out of the bottle. Very inconvenient. I won't buy this product again unless they change the pump. 04/17/2015
Awesome product ,pump doesn't work This is an awesome bb cream. Lightweight and even coverage. My only con is that halfways through the pump won't pump. I had to find a brush (concealer) thin enough to stick in and scoop out the product. Not very handy when you're in a hurry. 04/04/2015
Pump ruins it for me. Love the primer. Pump does not work. Choices are waste product or contaminate by opening bottle to get product out. 04/03/2015
I want to give this 5 stars, but... I have extremely oily, acne prone skin and at 52 years old I also have the concerns of aging skin. I have been using the BM original foundation for about 7 years now and my skin has improved noticeably. I was excited to see that BM had a BB primer-cream because I love the idea of having to apply only 1 product that gives me my moisturizer, sun-block, oil-control primer and enough color/coverage to even out my skin tone. This product provided all of the above - just the right amount of moisturizer, great coverage without looking like I was wearing make-up and 8 hours of shine free protection. There are 2 cons that I have with the product. First, I wish it was available in a cool, neutral and warm shade for each skin tone. I would like a shade with more neutral undertones as I don't really like how my skin looks with yellow-based make-up. I purchased the "light" shade as the "medium" shade which is more neutral, is too dark of a shade for me. The second con is the pump! The product dispensed just fine the first two times I used it (just one pump per application gave me the right amount of product) but after that it would not dispense properly so I had to unscrew the top and use the tube to scoop out the product. If those two issues were fixed i would give it 5 stars (or more!) 03/31/2015
Amazing product - horrendous packaging I was hesitant to purchase this product. I liked the idea of it and what it had to offer but I really don't have timed for an additional step. I instantly fell in love with it! It is quick and easy to apply. I can wear it alone or with my bareMinerals original foundation on top of it! It's great -and stays all day! I would easily give the product alone 5 Stars, however the pump is horrible. After consuming about 1/3 of the bottle the pump starts to spatter. I have gotten product all over my uniform while getting ready. Infuriating! It's a shame - BE you see all our comments, please redesign the packaging. You have a great product here! 02/21/2015
Good coverage, bad packaging I love the coverage but not the way it is dispensed. I spend most of my time digging out the product with a Q-tip. I will be changing to another product after this bottle. It is a shame, I love bare essentials and have been using it for over 10 years. 02/14/2015
Not consistent I have had 3 bottles of this product now. The first bottle I LOVED. The 2nd one was just 'okay'. The 3rd one I do not like at all. It seems like each time the consistency is different. The coverage is also different. The first bottle was creamy and smooth and really gave me good coverage with nothing over it. The next bottle was more runny, as is this one. I still have to wear all my regular foundation over it. I would prefer to wear it alone some days just for running errands, etc. 02/11/2015
Good product, HORRIBLE pump I purchased this product because I liked the fact that it included both primer and SPF30 and I can use it by itself or under my BE mineral powder. It goes on great and provides just the right amount of moisture as well as making my makeup last longer. The only down side is the pump. It simply does not pick up the product even in a new bottle. I finally gave up and just opened it and had to scoop the product off the straw which really isn't the best. If they changed this to one of the squeeze type bottles then it would be perfect. 01/26/2015
LOVE the product - HATE the pump I've been thinking of writing about this for a while now and when I read the other reviews I was happy to see that everyone agrees about the pump. I absolutely love the product but it's not cheap and it's bothersome when half of it is wasted stuck to the inside of the bottle. Sometimes is comes out too thick and sometimes it comes out too watery -- PLEASE change this product to a tube! 01/23/2015

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 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.

I liked the coverage and tint of the BB primer, but my skin broke out in several places after using it. I do not have any problems using the original primer, and would like to try one of the other primers.

You have to shake it really hard. the primer has separated, with the heavier portion in the bottom and all your getting is the thinner portion on the top. I sometimes roll the bottle between my hands to warm it up and then shake vigorously.

I shake the bottle to mix the product, then open the bottle up and take product from the bottle itself. The pump is definitely the issue.

Mine is very thin, unlike a foundation, and that is why I love it so much. It doesn't settle into nooks and crannies! I think it is supposed to be more liquid.

I had the exact same problem. I shake mine up everyday before I use it and it went back to the same creamy consistency as it was when I first bought it. Good luck. I hope you can save yours. I was able to save mine.

I would choose the light color. I called to find out which shade I should buy (I wear medium foundation) and they said medium. I love the medium color all by itself, but I don't like it under my foundation. I think it is a little dark. For winter I will order the light color.

Light would be the one for you, I am medium and use the light. I went to the Boutique and tried them both and light was the one we all decided on. I recommend going to a Bare Minerals Boutique, they have all of the knowledge about the primer and can help you make the right decision
