Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is rated out of 5 by 169.Rated 1 out of 5 by Christihu from Looks very flaky...may be due to hot temperature. I really liked this for the first week or so but after that, it was giving my skin a flaky appearance. I tried applying with my fingers instead of the brush but that didn’t help. Instead of helping to cover the discoloration on my checks, it was making it more noticeable because of the flakiness. Very disappointing. I feel like maybe my makeup was in a hot car for too long and it destroyed it because I tried it on my Aunt and it looked flaky on her too. Just a warning to others. I miss Prep Step.Date published: 2018-07-07Rated 1 out of 5 by brooke3 from Going back to original primer I am a BM loyalist & used the original primer for years. I decided to try this because of the spf 30 but it caused my skin to breakout terribly. I stopped for a week to let my skin clear up & tried again & the breakouts started again. I’ll stick to the original.Date published: 2018-06-09Rated 5 out of 5 by SCTGP from Love This Primer! This is the best primer ever! It's thick so I can use it as a foundation. Other primers are thin so they don't really work.I use the light color and when I put it on in the morning it hides the redness in my skin. I love it! I just found out that B.M. is discontinuing this great product!! Why?? I don't know what to use now. B.M. already discontinued their best foundation called Ready foundation. I'm so disappointed.Date published: 2018-05-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Karen79 from Geat texture I have been using almost a year & I love that my skin has remained clear!Date published: 2018-05-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Rose lady from Silky sheer I was worried because the review said this clogs easy. Been using for weeks now and had no probs. Great to use on no makeup days to give a more even tone. Will buy again.Date published: 2018-04-28Rated 5 out of 5 by LKat from DISCONTINUING THIS IS TRAGIC! Three pumps of the prime time in the tint, "fair" and two of shade "light" gives me an awesome and flawless coverage that I can layer the blemish control powder foundationDate published: 2017-11-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Ktorg from Best primer I’ve been using this primer for about a year. Best ever. Lovely matte finish, perfect tint to skin and keeps my oily skin in check all day. Plus it doesnt irritate my already acne prone skin! I haven’t had a problem with the pump like other reviewers. It isn’t perfect but neither is it hard to unscrew the cap and get the primer out that way if you have a problem.Date published: 2017-11-09Rated 5 out of 5 by julia921 from Can't live without! I've been a long time user of this product and it's my favorite step in beauty routine. It feels amazing on the skin!Date published: 2017-10-17
