Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - null
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.
I used this product for the first time this morning. It went on so smoothly, and gave just a hint of color and coverage! I can't wait to reap the other benefits of this bb cream. This is definitely my new favorite primer!!
Better than the original
I was not a fan of the original Prime Time primer. It was too slick and oily for my already oily skin. But on a whim I decided to try the Prime Time BB Primer-Cream. It's awesome. Today's my first day of using it and it did a wonderful job filling in my crater of pores. Between, this new primer and the matte foundation and powder, my skin looks gorgeous and I've received so many compliments at work. LOVE IT! This will replace my current primer. :)
First Bad Experience with a Bare Minerals product
Last night I bought Bare Minerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream and tried it for the first time this morning. It is the only new product that I tried. About 15 minutes after putting my make-up on my cheeks started to burn. Now I am very fair and have extremely sensitive skin, so other people may have no problem with this product. From the reviews I read before this it seems this is true. However, for me, my face continued to burn and after about 30 minutes I started feeling sick. I ran out of my office to the bathroom and had to wash my make-up off. My face is still burning a bit and my cheeks and under eyes are very pink. Like I said, this is the first bad experience I have ever had with a Bare Minerals product, but I would advise against this product if you have very sensitive skin.
This is the BEST foundation primer on the market!
Bareminerals have outdone themselves again...I love this primer! I have combo skin and with the oil-free foundation primer my makeup lasted for about 8-10 hours before my skin looked shiny and oily. With this new primer my foundation looks great for 15 hours! I work 12-hour shifts so its nice when my foundation can last that long!
Great BB base
I use the medium color and am in love with this. The medium color looks like it may be a little dark/orange on the fingers but once on your face it melts in nicely! Love that it has spf. I've been using it for a couple if weeks now. Texture is very smooth and silky. Coverage is nice, not as full coverage as other BB creams I have used but great as a BB primer and then on to a light dusting of matte BE foundation. with using the BB primer it has provider a longer wear than a regular primer. I would highly recommend this product.
It came out thick at first then it was normal then it came out watery and squirted all over. I tried shaking it and it made no difference. I should probably return it. I like that it leaves my face smooth looking. It doesn't provide the coverage of the foundation but its a good look if your in a hurry and you have time for the BB and some mascara. I have red undertones and I find that the neutralizer primer does a better job covering the red. I tried layering the neutralizer with the BB, but it turned out to yellow.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
This is my new favorite primer! I got the Light and it's a great match for me. Lately, all I have been wearing on my face is this primer, concealer and my brightening pearl perfect light mineral veil. The texture of the primer is so light and fluffy...it's just fabulous! Thanks BE for such an awesome product! ♥BE :-)
Love love love!
Love this product! I've noticed that it really controls my oil better than the oil control primer. I use it with the Ready Foundation everyday and sometimes by itself on a Saturday with mineral veil. I have to touch up less on longer days. Using less foundation and mineral veil is a plus!!
