Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Spf 30 - null
Love it, but pump doesn't work properly!
The product is great, but you have to open it up to use it. The pump pumps out the oils and leaves behind the product. change to a different packaging, please!
Pump doesn't work
I love the product, but the pump sprays out a liquid- when it works at all. The rest of the product is clumped up in the bottle. Please package this differently. Maybe in a tube. The spray pump just isn't the way to go with this product. I will have to scoop out with a q tip to use this.
New Favorite Primer
I tried a sample of this primer out of curiosity while happily using the oil control primer which I loved at the time. I could not resist completely switching over to this one! It makes my face feel really soft and smooth and also feels very light. It evens out my face so well that often times I wear it by itself. The only thing that I would change is the dispenser bottle as I have had the same issues as the other reviewers mentioned. After a month or so, it squirts out and gets everywhere and is difficult to manage. Besides that, it is a great product!
I love the Prime Time BB primer. Often I wear just that as it gives me a great light coverage and natural look and leaves my skin feeling wonderful.. Also, there are times when I'm my face is just too damp for anything else.
A good product
I am on the hunt for something perfect for my seriously broken out skin. I use Retin-a to combat acne and aging (28 yrs old) so my skin is always very dry to the point of being flaky around my breakouts. I had to stop using B.M. foundation years ago actually because of my flakiness. I had been using too faced BB cream and it was ALRIGHT, but the color was just off. I went into the store expecting to purchase the new B.M. foundation and instead left with the BB primer and pressed mineral veil with SPF 25 instead. It evens out my redness, it is a mineral spf (a BIG plus for me) and it is not making my breakouts worse. That being said, as with all products I have tried, it tends to dry out throughout the day and so by the end of the day I look a little haggard with it on. But, the ingredients are good, the SPF is desirable, and the coverage makes my skin look great (other than the broken out spots, but nothing makes that look better except time) I do wish it had a bit more buildable coverage, but that's not really the point of the product that is just my own wishful thinking. I had not even thought about the packaging until I read other reviews but yes I would agree it does tend to spit out at me from time to time, but by no means is that a deal breaker, just slightly annoying.
This product is wonderful. I use it for on the go skin tone evening. It is the only face makeup I wear on a daily basis and it is so smooth. It barely looks like I have anything on, but somehow it does the trick!
However, the packaging of this product is a huge problem. When the pump does work, it sprays out a liquid version of the product all over the place. I do everything I can to shield it from going everywhere but at least once a week I have to change my outfit because it gets ALL over the place.
Today I opened the cap to see that the substance itself is actually very thick. I think the oils in the product are falling to the bottom, leaving most of the substance behind. Although the bottle does not say to, I often shake it and tap it on the counter to try to get the pump functioning properly. This does not work.
I will be opening up the lid and scooping out the product from now on, but this product desperately needs new packaging. perhaps a tube similar to toothpaste would be more efficient. Please do something about this asap. I love this product but I'm not sure I would buy it again if the packaging does not change.
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!
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.
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.
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.
