Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - null
Not good for oily
Like the product itself but had to return it because it was not good for my oily skin. Had to get the oil control primer which was much better.
The only con is the pump! But I just use a pocket knife to cut the bottom off and I use every drop! I store in a tightly closed zip lock bag after opening. But I do this with tubes of makeup too to get every last drop! A little goes a long ways!
original primer is better
The tinted primer caused me dry skin issue. Love the original primer for my skin.
Primer is awesome, pump is awful!
I fell in love with this primer as soon as I got it home. It gave lovely soft coverage on my aging skin and did not show laugh lines. It worked great alone or under my foundation. But after only a couple of weeks of using it the primer would no longer come out of the pump. I would have to unscrew the top and scrape out with the pump stem. This took forever and is such a waste of money and time. It is frustrating and has turned me off some of the products. I can't afford the time or the money to experiment with products that are supposed to be great from the beginning. Not taking any more chances.
Agree with other poor reviews
I did actually really like this product the first couple of times I used it. After using it a few times, when I pump out the product, it comes out as a watery mess. Looked inside and can see the product has separated. Guess I'll have to stop using the pump and dig the product out of the bottle. Very inconvenient. I won't buy this product again unless they change the pump.
Awesome product ,pump doesn't work
This is an awesome bb cream. Lightweight and even coverage. My only con is that halfways through the pump won't pump. I had to find a brush (concealer) thin enough to stick in and scoop out the product. Not very handy when you're in a hurry.
Pump ruins it for me.
Love the primer. Pump does not work. Choices are waste product or contaminate by opening bottle to get product out.
I want to give this 5 stars, but...
I have extremely oily, acne prone skin and at 52 years old I also have the concerns of aging skin. I have been using the BM original foundation for about 7 years now and my skin has improved noticeably. I was excited to see that BM had a BB primer-cream because I love the idea of having to apply only 1 product that gives me my moisturizer, sun-block, oil-control primer and enough color/coverage to even out my skin tone. This product provided all of the above - just the right amount of moisturizer, great coverage without looking like I was wearing make-up and 8 hours of shine free protection.
There are 2 cons that I have with the product. First, I wish it was available in a cool, neutral and warm shade for each skin tone. I would like a shade with more neutral undertones as I don't really like how my skin looks with yellow-based make-up. I purchased the "light" shade as the "medium" shade which is more neutral, is too dark of a shade for me.
The second con is the pump! The product dispensed just fine the first two times I used it (just one pump per application gave me the right amount of product) but after that it would not dispense properly so I had to unscrew the top and use the tube to scoop out the product.
If those two issues were fixed i would give it 5 stars (or more!)
Amazing product - horrendous packaging
I was hesitant to purchase this product. I liked the idea of it and what it had to offer but I really don't have timed for an additional step. I instantly fell in love with it! It is quick and easy to apply. I can wear it alone or with my bareMinerals original foundation on top of it! It's great -and stays all day! I would easily give the product alone 5 Stars, however the pump is horrible. After consuming about 1/3 of the bottle the pump starts to spatter. I have gotten product all over my uniform while getting ready. Infuriating! It's a shame - BE you see all our comments, please redesign the packaging. You have a great product here!
Good coverage, bad packaging
I love the coverage but not the way it is dispensed. I spend most of my time digging out the product with a Q-tip. I will be changing to another product after this bottle. It is a shame, I love bare essentials and have been using it for over 10 years.
