Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Spf 30 - null 3.9 5 66 66
Awesome and frustrating I love this primer, and I really appreciate that you created an SPF 30 primer in the light color because the medium from last summer was too dark for my skin tone, even with a suntan. However, this cream really needs a different delivery system. The bottle worked fine for a month or so, but now it sputters and spews primer all over the bathroom when I push down on the pump, and I have to pump it multiple times to get anything out at all. I've gone to opening up the bottle and shaking it upside down to get the product out on my finger. The bottle is still over half full and I'm having this difficulty. Please go to a squeeze tube or something that does not make such a mess, it's really frustrating. Thanks! 06/04/2014
Easy and awesome! I received this new BB primer the other day and I love it so much! Awesome primer, and even looks amazing just putting it on to run a few errands. I am not having trouble with the pump like a lot of other reviewers are. I shake the bottle extremely well, pump and then clean the pump off with a towel, and replace the cap. Haven't had an issue with it spraying everywhere. 05/30/2014
Hides rosacea well I tried the sample in the store yesterday. Was surprised to see that the rosacea on my cheeks and chin nearly disappeared with just the BB Primer and nothing else on my face. I purchased a bottle to try it out. I don't know if it just covers or clears the redness, but it really helps as a UV primer before putting on my powder foundation instead of just the oil control primer. Will see over time if it will continue to control the rosacea. 05/30/2014
SPF 30. I'm in love! I've been wearing this daily. At first, in a cold bathroom, the product didn't come out of the pump, but when I smacked the bottom against my hand, problem solved (had been resting on its side in the box). I love the way this product makes my skin feel. I sunburn in 15 minutes, so this level of sunscreen is a must. I use it on my arms, and do touch ups with the powder BE sunscreen that also is SPF 30. If this primer came in a larger size bottle, I'd use it on my whole body. 05/21/2014
I use this with or with out I don't always wear make up, not for 2 Parrots and cats. My husband is gone a lot. I live in a small town, and I own a small business. I use the BB-Primer as a sun screen alone. I love the fact that just like the mineral foundation it is weightless and light. When putting on make up it just seams to help it go on effortlessly. So I think it is great alone or with your make up 05/16/2014
Please change the pump bottle packaging Love the product but have had terrible luck with every primer I've purchased. Product dispenses poorly, if at all. Usually end up unscrewing and using my finger to take primer off the straw. Must be a better way! 05/16/2014
Wonderful Product/Packaging Needs Work I no longer need to use a concealer. The primer evens out my skin imperfections leaving it silky and smooth. I use about half the amount of foundation. I have an oily t-zone however when I use this primer no more mid day shine. It has better oil control than the oil control primer. My makeup lasts 12 hours. I only gave 4 stars because the pump bottle needs work. Sometimes it clogs and other times you get more than you need. I always shake the bottle before I dispense the product. 05/16/2014
Love this BB/Primer I'll have to make sure I shake it better (after reading some other reviews) but even still, I really like this. It's nice to have the primer begin to add some coverage so if I want to just wear the Primer and some eye-liner I can! Or, i can just dust on some mineral powder foundation and go for a touch more coverage. The primer part still works as well as the basic primers. I can put my makeup on first thing in the morning and forget about it! 05/16/2014
FIX the delivery system Pushing the pump, i get an explosion of thin oil that goes all over the place!!. Unscrew the top and find a thick, luxurious product that is a pain to get out of the bottle. Love the spf 30 and how the primer feels on the skin. If anyone has figured out how to use the pump--please let me know! I want to use this because of how much I like the product, but if the company doesn't fix the delivery system I will return to Philosophy's Supernatural Poreless Flawless! 05/10/2014
Great product, packaging an issue I have been using this product under my mineral foundation and really love how it makes my skin feel. The pump is definitely an issue - spraying everywhere. Initially, I also found that the product coming out was oily. Now, I shake the bottle, unscrew the pump and take product directly out of the bottle. I would like Bare Escentuals to revise the packaging so the product is mixed properly for each use and it isn't that hard to get out of the bottle. 05/06/2014
