It does what it says I have must say this foundation primer has turned out to be my favorite and I have tried a lot. The texture and feel as an under makeup primer is wonderful and having the benefit of SPF 30 is a plus. At my age I wear nothing less than SPF 30 or more for over 30 years. I have not had any problems with the pump, I shake before using and wipe the tip afterwards and it always comes out perfect. I do recommend. 08/13/2015
Love the product not the packaging I love this product!! Love it! but i have the pump packaging. It kindof gets clogged and when you go to pump some of it out it sprays EVERYWHERE! 08/12/2015
First time using a primer, will not use anything else! I've never used primer before. Typically for my makeup I use the original powder along with the mineral veil and that's about it for my face. I read all the great reviews for this primer and figured I'd give it a go. I was a bit skeptical, because normally anything liquid makes my face break out a tremendous amount. But I was surprised to find out that this didn't make me break out at all! It's light and non-oily when you apply it, you can't even feel it on your face once it's on. Overall, this product is great and I definitely will not be using any other primer any time soon. 08/12/2015
Love this primer! I did not believe in primers before I tried this product. Now, I won't put makeup on without this primer. It goes on so smooth, conceals, even skin tone, helps makeup last longer, and makes makeup look better on the skin! A lot of people said that the pump malfunctioned, I did not have an issue with it at all. The primer was a great color, lasted for months, and never clogged (in the bottle or on my skin). I will definitely be purchasing again. If you want a wonderful primer that is so much more than just a primer, I recommend this product! 07/22/2015
Caused major break-out This is the only BareMinerals product that has ever caused me to break out. Just to make sure it was the product (because I really wanted to like it) I stopped using it until my face cleared up and started using it again. Within 24 hours my face was broken out again. I like the concept - but there is something in this that does not agree with my skin. 07/17/2015
Primer/BB Cream combo Best one I have used yet, and I have tried several different brands! It is light, not greasy or oily, and soaks in. Great primer for the original matte foundation. More even coverage. HIGHLY recommend. 07/06/2015
Feels silky smooth, bonus sunscreen but... I love this product and continue to buy it. But even after shaking it every day it gets thick and clumpy at the end. The only way to get the product out then is to shake upside down and open the cap to dab onto your face for distribution. Don't add water...I tried that. Doesn't mix well. For the price, I would like the product to remain the same consistency to the end. 07/05/2015
I am a faithful forever user of Bare Minerals I love this BB Primer. It is the absolute best. I was so happy you made it tinted. I usually order on QVC. They have deluxe in most products. It last 3 times longer. I haven't had any issues with the pump until its almost empty. then i just open it & shake it out. If its watey all you have to do is shake it & it will mix it up again. I'm telling you BE is life changing. Thanks Leslie 06/29/2015
bb cream with spf I was looking for a bb cream with spf. I like how it goes on smoothly and does help with my oily skin. It's light coverage, I use 2 pumps for a little more coverage but i use with the bareminerals foundation for a medium coverage look. I haven't used many other bb creams to compare but i have to say i will buy it again. 06/26/2015
Primer cream Pump does not work properly and only liquid comes out in spurts. Wouldn't buy it again. 06/20/2015

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
