Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - null
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!
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.
This is the BEST foundation primer on the market!
Bareminerals have outdone themselves again...I love this primer! I have combo skin and with the oil-free foundation primer my makeup lasted for about 8-10 hours before my skin looked shiny and oily. With this new primer my foundation looks great for 15 hours! I work 12-hour shifts so its nice when my foundation can last that long!
Great BB base
I use the medium color and am in love with this. The medium color looks like it may be a little dark/orange on the fingers but once on your face it melts in nicely! Love that it has spf. I've been using it for a couple if weeks now. Texture is very smooth and silky. Coverage is nice, not as full coverage as other BB creams I have used but great as a BB primer and then on to a light dusting of matte BE foundation. with using the BB primer it has provider a longer wear than a regular primer. I would highly recommend this product.
It came out thick at first then it was normal then it came out watery and squirted all over. I tried shaking it and it made no difference. I should probably return it. I like that it leaves my face smooth looking. It doesn't provide the coverage of the foundation but its a good look if your in a hurry and you have time for the BB and some mascara. I have red undertones and I find that the neutralizer primer does a better job covering the red. I tried layering the neutralizer with the BB, but it turned out to yellow.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
This is my new favorite primer! I got the Light and it's a great match for me. Lately, all I have been wearing on my face is this primer, concealer and my brightening pearl perfect light mineral veil. The texture of the primer is so light and fluffy...it's just fabulous! Thanks BE for such an awesome product! ♥BE :-)
Love love love!
Love this product! I've noticed that it really controls my oil better than the oil control primer. I use it with the Ready Foundation everyday and sometimes by itself on a Saturday with mineral veil. I have to touch up less on longer days. Using less foundation and mineral veil is a plus!!
I bought the light although it is on the yellow side but I do have yellow undertones. This product is perfect for people with light complexion with red spots or with rosacea as it mask them pretty well. You can wear it without make up but it does make your makeup look flawless and last longer. I use it with my READY pressed foundation.
The only reason I did not give it a full five heart rating is because I have used it once. I will see if I continue to like it with daily use. I have very sensitive skin that when my skin does not like a product, my skin breaks out but so far, no problems. I actually like this primer better than the neutralizing foundation primer as that one feels more heavy on the skin.
Exactly what I have been waiting for
I was a little leery to try this, but it was love at first use. I need something to wear just around the house to cover the brown spots, redness, and some other facial skin issues I have been having due to side effects of a certain medication I am taking. This is exactly what I need! I have such oily skin--this helps combat that--and it gets rid of the redness and helps hide the spots, all in one. Just one little drop goes on my face at the beginning of the day, and voila! My skin looks better throughout the day, without having to put on primer, then foundation, then mineral veil. I cannot wait to use the product during the summer months. Thank you for this! Please keep this product in stock! Now, if only you will bring back Poof for Lips, I would be so happy. (I am allergic to all of your lip products right now, which either contain fragrance or plumping ingredients.) Poof was made up of only 3 ingredients and I have found nothing like it on the market. Bring back Poof! :)
I love this primer! Gives a light coverage and dewey feel to the skin Its a "no makeup" make up. I have even mixed it with faux tan matte powder for extra color . Works great!
It's worth the purchase
Helps in the reduction of fine lines, gives a glow, corrects redness and seems to help hold moisture in. I have psoriasis and have had trouble this winter with foundation caking on my 'patches'. I am using the light and it is perfect for me. It has reduced the appearance of the dry psoriasis patches. No breakouts which surprised me since the only primer I was able to use before was the original. I did have a little trouble with getting it to squirt without going all over but as long as I shake it a little it seems to have corrected that problem.
So far so good!
I pre-ordered this product in both shades. I love the Medium as it adds a bit of tan to my skin, the Light is definitely "yellowy." I loved this the first week I used it. I am starting to get uncharacteristic break-outs though so I am going to try not using this for a few days to see if it stops.
Also, by the end of the day it gets cakey due to the sunscreen in it - just as sunscreen gets if you apply makeup over top of it.
All in all good product.
Blends Well with the Original Foundation, Amazing!
I am in love with this product! It goes on silky smooth and really helps the original foundation blend seamlessly into the skin. My skin in quite a bit drier now, and this has infused my skin with that Bare Minerals glow.
I got the light and it is very yellow, but in a good way. The yellow helps to combat the redness in my skin.
Great product! Keep up the good work!
