Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - null
PLEASE change the packaging!
I would have given the product itself five stars. It has a beautiful finish, provides a decent amount of coverage (enough to wear alone on the weekend), and blends in smoothly and flawlessly. However, as many others have said, the pump stops working within about two weeks and just sputters product out everywhere, making a mess. Having to mix and scoop out product shouldn't be happening at this price point. It would be so much better in a squeeze tube. PLEASE change it, I love the product but can't in good conscience rebuy with the horrible packaging.
Love the silky feel on my face. Helps my foundation last and look better. I do have to agree with most of the other reviews that the pump bottle needs to be changed. It starts to spray almost right away and it sprays on my bathroom wall. Very aggravating. I returned the first bottle thinking it was defective but then the next bottle did the same. I have to open the bottle and get it off that way. Please fix this issue.
Dried my skin out :(
The color and application was great. However, it dried my face out around my nose and on my chin. I'm not prone to dry skin either. I have very normal skin. I used the original primer before this and will be switching back to that (it's awesome for me).
I never used primer until I discovered this gem
I went to get color matched again for a refill on the powder makeup and the lady used the tinted primer and it was so light and airy. I am a very basic makeup user. Daily, I just use powder/foundation and blush (with sunscreen and anti-wrinkle eye cream under). I have been an athlete my whole life so I like something simple and that won't clog pores. I also do not like the feeling of anything on my face. This stuff was amazing...so light and gave this great even skin tone. She then added the powder and it was a beautiful finish! It looked like I had perfect skin (I have some acne that still comes and goes and my skin tone is not even). I took off one star because it is really expensive for such a small bottle but I normally only use this in the evenings when I go out as during the day I don't wear much. Highly recommended for a natural finish.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
