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