Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Spf 30 - null
Surprised by how much I like this!
I was hesitant to use this primer since I had never used any kind of foundation in my adult life for fear it would feel heavy. I have some very minor pigment spots but basically great skin. Well, I absolutely LOVE this primer! It is very, very light and silky feeling on my skin. Since it has SPF 30 I feel good going outside knowing I have protection against further darkening of my spots. One pump is the perfect amount of coverage for me. I use some Correcting Concealer underneath and Hydrating Mineral Veil on top. Voila!
As for the pump clogging, I've found after shaking the bottle well, if I keep the bottle UPRIGHT when pumping—not tilting the bottle at all—it pumps great every time.
Did I say I love this product? I love it!
Love the product, not the pump
I absolutely LOVE the BB Primer so much, it makes my skin so soft and smooth. My makeup goes on flawlessly, but the pump gets clogged all the time and I have to take it out and pump hot water through it to get the clog out. I have wasted a ton of the product and with the price of this, it is very frustrating to lose that much of it.
Can't apply my makeup with out it.
I love BM products but I never used the foundation primers because I didn't see any difference when using them. I have changed my mind since I started using the BB Primer Cream. I absolutely love how my skin feels when using this product. My makeup lasts so much longer and I don't feel oily after wearing it all day. For some occasions the tint of the primer is enough that I don't need to wear foundation. I have never had a problem with the pump on my bottle though I always make sure there is no product left on the nozzle to clog it.
Great product except for one thing
I absolutely love the prime time bb primer-cream daily defense broad spectrum spf 30. I have an allergy to coconut and its derivatives so I have to be really careful with anything that I put on my skin. I've never been able to use any sunscreen product before since all sunscreen had coconut/derivatives in them. I love that this product goes on silky and feels smooth once worked into the skin. I wear this daily with a little mineral veil over it. I have very oily skin, and even when I used prime time oil control primer, my face would still look oily. With the bb primer-cream, my face stays matte-looking all day with out needing a mineral veil touch up. The only down side to the bb primer-cream, is that it dries my skin out if I wear it for too long. Sometimes my face is so dry that my skin becomes flaky. I have not had problems yet with the pump like other reviewers have had. I would recommend this product to people who need a daily light coverage who have oily skin, just be sure to moisturize while you aren't wearing it!
Great Product… Horrible Packaging
Was pleasantly surprised by this product… Goes on smoothly and keeps makeup looking fresher longer. My issue is with the packaging (which seems to be a problem for a lot of people)… The pump doesn't work with the product after the first week, and although you can take the top off to get the product out, you end up wasting quite a bit that way. They need to rethink the package to make it more usable, otherwise the product is great.
Love this primer!
Absolutely my favorite primer, hands down. I have tried the original primer, neutralizing primer and oil control primer. This BB primer is by far the best performing. It feels silky smooth to apply and does a great job to keep my oily skin in check all day. It's great to even the color and redness of my skin. Love this primer and love it more for the SPF!
The Primer to end all Primers
I love love LOVE this primer. It is so silky smooth; it applies like a dream. It has decent coverage. You can wear it alone or as a primer under the foundation. And I adore the fact that is has SPF 30. That is the highest spf Bare Minerals offers and what a wonderful product to have it in! And now that they've extended the shades, anyone is set.
Great product. Please improve packaging.
I love this product as it is a wonderful sunscreen with no irritation plus reasonable coverage and feels great on the skin. However, it is nearly impossible to get it out of the container. Bare Minerals is usually so responsive to customer feedback. Please, please improve!!
I won't use anything else
I am in absolute LOVE with this product. I refuse to wear anything else on my skin anymore. I used to suffer from TERRIBLE breakouts. Then, I switched over to Bare Minerals. At first I was using the foundation, but then I discovered this and now it's all I use. I put a drop of this on, with bronzer, blush, mineral veil, and then flawless radiance for a complete look. OBSESSED.
Needs to be in a squeeze tube
I love the coverage & protection & the smooth & silky feel. BUT the pump is useless. When is the Bare Essentials team going to listen to the feed back & change the packaging?
