Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Spf 30 - null
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.
