Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - null
Product is great! Packaging stinks!
I have used Bare Minerals products for years, however, had been using a different brand of BB cream. When I saw they came out with a BB cream, I was excited! I read the reviews that were online, and I did notice the many complaints about the pump on the bottle, however, I still had to have this product. Big mistake!! Although the actual product is fantastic, the mess with the pump makes it not worth it. The product itself is very silky and makes your skin feel great. There is just enough tint that you can throw this on to run some errands. After just a couple uses, the pump wouldn't work right. It clogs and sprays everywhere, including your clothes! I love this product, however, until they fix the pump, I will not be purchasing it again.
Love the product- but hate the pump!
Giving this a 4 out of 5 because . . . . I purchased the product in late March and have been using it almost daily. It is everything as advertised - silky smooth; can be worn alone or under foundation; excellent color match. The only issue I've had is the pump. After about 3 weeks of use, the pump is clogged and I cannot get any product through it at all, so I have to open the bottle, pull out the pump, and slide the product off the tube. I was very pleased when I called BM and learned that I could exchange the product and hopefully the new one will come with a fully functioning pump!
This pump has got to go
I don't know what it is maybe you changed who makes your pumps but I have had many issues with your primer as of late. One the regular primer I have had it liquefy where I have to shake it before use so I decided to try this new primer. I have to say I love the fact that it has a tint to it and helps cover my red spots on my face before applying anything else. I use less foundation because of this product. THE PUMP IS THE WORST THOUGH. Maybe it is the product though the pump that came on the product stopped working (like others have said it spurts and goes all over the place including clothing) so I had a bottle of the regular primer in the cabinet and the pump worked on that so I transferred the pump to this bottle and it worked in the beginning and then started sputtering and not working again. Now I just take the cap off and put was is on the outside tube of the pump on my hand and apply. It is a pain to do it this way but the store is around 30 minutes away and I don't want to pay to ship it back so I'm suffering for now. Will definitely not purchase again unless the pump or packaging changes.
Great Product - Pump Not So Great
The product itself is great, appreciate the hint from the other customer to shake it each time before use; however, same complaint as the others ... the pump is lacking. You can't control the amount to come out and many times it squirts out quickly and can get on your clothing or anything else nearby.
Love this Primer - CHANGE PACKAGE!
I would be giving this 5 stars if it weren't for the packaging. I have to agree with almost every other review. When I first opened the product the squirter worked fine, but now it just goes everywhere. So now when I want to use it I must unscrew the top and get it out that way. The primer itself is great! Please change the packaging! Otherwise, I probably will not be buying this again because I won't be getting what I am paying for seeing as I will never be able to get all of the product out!
Love the coverage
The product is wonderful and the coverage great! It is so nice to use a quick make up that covers and looks great; however I wish you would put it in a different application container. I learned the hard way not to have on a top I was planning to wear for the day, it splattered all over the place including my jeans. Please put it in a different container, one which has a top, even that needs to be unscrewed, and can be applied easily on the finger. I would like to have more of this, but it is a pain to use!!
Need to fix the pump
I like the product very much, but I'm on my 2nd bottle and the same thing happened. The pump stopped working, which makes you use more product than you need. Fix this problem please.
Can wear with or without makeup! But SHAKE IT UP!
I loved this product when I first received it. Then I started having the same problem many others are having with it splattering everywhere. I have found that if you shake it up daily, it comes out much better and doesn't go everywhere. It stays very creamy and goes on much smoother.
I love this primer because I can wear it without makeup if I don't have time to put on my full face or if I'm just too lazy. Plus it has sunscreen in it. Its very creamy and smooth and I love the little extra tint. Its like putting on a thin layer of concealer. Sometimes I can even skip the concealer.
Its a great primer if you remember to SHAKE IT UP!
Favorite Primer..pump is awful
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this primer! It is my favorite of all that I have tried, and I have tried many. I love that is has sunscreen and I love the touch of coverage. It keeps my make up great all day!
HOWEVER-the pump (which works fine for the original PrimeTime) is terrible for this! It's squirts out all over the place. (Nothing like having to change your shirt when your getting ready for work in the morning because primer got all over you!) It may be because the texture of this product is a little different from the original. I think a squeeze type tube would be SO much better. If Bare Minerals Made this change It would be PERFECT for me!
This stuff liquified and squirts all over the place. It's consistency is nothing like any other primer I have used and does not feel good on my skin. It was not like this when I first purchased. I have only owned it a few weeks. I think Bareminerals needs to work on this product. I am taking it back to the store.
I haven't liked any primer except the original. But this stuff us great. It feels creamy, different from the silkly original. But the biggest deal is the sunscreen. I spend a lot of time up in the mountains. On casual days, this is all I wear. I'm 70 and love this because it just glides over my lines. On "makeup" days, this keeps my foundation & contouring in place all day. What a wonderful product.
I've had no problems with the pump. Did they make changes of some sort?
I've finally found it!
I cannot sing the praises of this product enough. After an extensive (and very expensive) search for the perfect BB cream for my 39-year-old-and-starting-to-show-age skin, I have to look no more. I tried other BB creams from the drug stores and department stores, and they were too greasy, too drying, too heavy, settled into my fine lines, etc. This Bare Minerals BB Cream/Primer is perfect. It hydrates my skin without making it greasy, yet it also controls my oily T-zone, and the appearance of my fine lines really is diminished, especially around my mouth, about which I am most self-conscious. It is very light, yet provides smooth and even coverage. I have even been able to discontinue wearing the powder foundation over it; I simply apply the BB cream and then use the loose powder mineral veil on top. The only downfall- and it's a small one- is that it only comes in two shades, light and medium. The medium shade is perfect for me right now, but I fear it my get a little too light as I get some tan on my face this summer. Dear Bare Minerals- please make a shade a little darker than the medium. Then you will be perfect!
I fall in love with bb primers each time they come out. This one is just as good. I love how smooth and light it goes on, but you get great coverage. This really works good wiht the new BE liquid foudation. thank you leslie and BE once again a great primer.
This primer is perfect. I want it in a deluxe size if possible, even if I need to purchase it from QVC. However, as good as it is, I will never buy it again in this pump. What went so horribly wrong with this packaging? It squirts all over the place including your cloths, sink, mirror and walls!
Love the product -PLEASE provide different package
This is my first time using a primer and I do like how it feels and covers. Great for my rosecea. The packaging is not good. It comes out like a liquid no matter how much I attempt to mix it. I must resort to unscrewing the liquid and taking product off the wand inside. Not ideal. Hopefully we will see some improvements soon. Thanks!
BB CREAM GREAT -- PUMP IS HORRIBLE
I love this product, but like some of the reviews on here after using it a couple of days it is coming out more like a liquid than a cream. I have to really shake it in order for it to come out like a cream. Hopefully changes will be made.
This is a nice primer. Unlike the other primers that have a tint to it (neutralizing and antioxident), this one doesn't get stuck in my pores.
BEST BB PRIMER!!
I had been looking for a primer for my oily skin and nothing would help me :/ until I ordered this one online and OMG!!! Its AMAZING!!! I last all day matte finish and I'm the type that by noon my nose is very oily... I am just sooo obsessed with Bare Minerals products!!!
BB Primer Cream
I really like this primer! The texture is kind of airy which feels nice on the skin. My only complaint (and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars) would be that after using it daily for about a week or so, the pump doesn't work as well. It almost forces you to use more product than you need. I didn't have this problem with the Neutralizing primer.
I am obsessed with this product!
I have been buying bare minerals since I was 16 years old. I have oily skin, and have tried all of the primers and did not really like them. I absolutely love this product! I wear it as a primer, sunscreen, and BB cream. It doesn't get flaky like the other primers did on my skin or make it look shiny. I hope they never stop making this product!
Product is great; PUMP MECHANISM IS HORRIBLE!
I do like this BB primer. However, after using it approximately 3 times, the product jammed up the pump and now it will only squirt (or rather splatter) a fine liquid. And all over my bathroom too. I'm still cleaning it up days later, as I'm finding splatters in odd places . . . and let me tell you, that stuff travels too, like several yards away from where I was using it. I had to resort to opening up the bottle and getting the product out that way. I was shocked to see how thick the product actually is because when I was originally dispensing it, it seemed to be like a lotion. If you open up the bottle (even after shaking it) you will see this this is actually a thicker product than what the pump is distributing. Although I like the BB primer, sadly, I am am returning it because of the poor delivery system. Leslie, you need to find different packaging for this product, maybe a squeeze tube would be better.
Love the product, hate the packaging
This is an amazing primer. It looks great alone, feels great on my skin, and I love the SPF factor.
My only complaint (and the reason I didn't give it 5 stars) is that the pump really doesn't work after you've been using the product for a little while. The primer sticks to the sides of the bottle and you have to take the top off and use a brush. I would like to have it in the squeeze-type bottle than a pump-style.
But the product itself? Really lovely.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BB PRIMER!!
I have oily skin and have tried everything , and all the other BM Primers, with other BB creams... but this Primer + BB cream in one is by FAR my favorite. It goes on liquid and dries as powder. It leaves my skin looking flawless. PLUS it has SPF 30. I wear it under the BM Matte Foundation with a little BM bronzer and blush. Even without the foundation and other make up - it looks great alone.
I am a loyal Bare Minerals user, and have been for years, as well as a former make up artist. I was SUPER excited for this product. Perfector, primer, and sunscreen all in one!?! Yes please! I was very sadly disappointed. This made my face feel like an oil slick, was very irritating, and after a couple days I had extremely painful under the skin blemishes. (No skin care changes, and I don't usually break out). I can only guess it was from this product. I use the regular BM primer with no problem, but this made my skin feel like it couldn't breathe, was covered in oil, and after a couple days itchy red. I desperately wanted this to work, and tried the BB Primer, a dusting of Mineral Veil, the Original Foundation, and then setting it with another dusting of mineral veil...it still didn't help, it slid right off my face and I have dry skin. Never had a single issue with another BM product. Very disappointed.
A new essential product!
I bought this just a couple of days ago, and have been wearing this every day since.
I am a true believer. It goes on smoothly, has a very light feel as opposed to the Original Primer, and gives my skin a lovely finish once I have applied my makeup. I feel like I do not need to use as much foundation, and everything goes on like silk. I don't get that breakthrough shine; just a nice glow.
I didn't know I was missing this. Who knew?
Prime Time BB Primer-Cream
I am not one to always use primers or BB creams because I feel like a lot of the time my oily skin just can't handle all those layers. This BB cream isn't super tinted, but it does help blur the lines and act as a very light-coverage "foundation." It has also help reduce my face oils and make my makeup last all day! It's consistency is very similar to the Original Primer and absorbs well. Great product; love it more than the Original.
best primer yet
I have tried BM's original, brightening, and Oil control primers. This one beats them all (although the original comes in 2nd place). Con: The tint is so subtle, I found it to be unnoticeable and it barely made a dent to even my skin. Pros: the consistency is excellent. Not too heavy- SHOCKING that this has SPF 30. This will be my beach staple this summer. I use it under REady foundation and so far it seems to hold up well all day. However, my skin has been much less oily during my pregnancy. The true test of this product on my skin will not come until my normal, non-pregnant, super super oily skin returns.
New favorite thing period.
I've used other bb creams and this is first to not feel heavy on my face. It is so perfect and light weight and gives just the right amount of coverage and priming power to hold in color for the whole say. It leaves such a satiny feel to my face and I so rarely break out since switching my bb over. Absolutely love it.
This primer is my new must have
I got this in the mail Thursday and used it yesterday for the first time. I am a BE girl 100% so I'm always excited to try new products. I'm 56, but have "young skin" for my age. It's a little dry from meds I take, so sometimes I get the white flaky look. (I may only see them because I use a super magnified lit makeup mirror, though!). Anyway, I used this BB Primer yesterday, and VOILA! No white flakies!!! Happy days! You'll love it!
Love this BB cream
I have very uneven skin tone & ordered this online last week. Tried it out for the first time yesterday and I absolutely love it. I am light skinned and purchased the light and it matches great. I found it to even out my skin tone better than any other primer out there! I just started using Bare MInerals a couple months ago and I cannot say enough good things about their products. This BB cream is yet another BM product that did not disappoint! Highly recommend.
