    Upsetting that this primer has silicone in it. Also feel as though this is misleading because they claim its free from so many other harmful things but then adds in silicone :(

    Asked by: zuko
    Hi zuko, Silicone is a common ingredient used in cosmetics and other personal care products; it functions generally as a skin conditioning agent. Please be assured that the ingredients we use in our products meet high quality standards, and fully comply with federal and state regulations.

    I got this primer a few weeks ago and I love it! For the first week I had it, the texture was like a light gel, but recently it’s been coming out more like liquid and shooting out of the bottle and getting all over my hands. Is this normal? 

    Asked by: Carol187
    Hi Carol187, We suggest storing product in a cool, nonhumid place for best preservation however if you shake the primer bottle bottle prior to usage and are still dissatisfied with the texture and its performance, please contact our customer care team so they can help arrange an exchange or refund for you by calling 888.795.4747 (M – Sun 8a – 11p EST).

    The last few bottles of primer that I have purchased tend to gunk up in the bottle. It gets gel like and doesn't pump out of the applicator. Why is this happening? I like the product, but feel that it is wasteful, as I can never get it out of the bottle.

    Asked by: Super Grandma
    Hi Super Grandma, We're sorry to hear about that! We suggest unscrewing the cap and straw and running them under warm water to loosen up any clogged product. We hope this helps!

    Comparing these ingredients & your blemish foundation (and your other foundations) this primer has less irritating ingredients for me. Could I use this completely and get decent coverage without other foundation? Maybe finish with mineral powder on top?

    Asked by: ange1281
    Hi ange1281, We're so glad that you found products of ours that work with your needs. We love these two products as well. Our Prime Time Foundation Primer is a primer without any coverage so if you want to prime with this and then follow it with our BLEMISH RESCUE Skin-Clearing Loose Powder Foundation we think that's a great idea and will provide all the coverage you need.

    Which one should go first - this primer or my SPF moisturiser? If I put the primer on top of the SPF wouldn't it brake it?

    Asked by: Didony
    We suggest applying your favorite bareMinerals moisturizer, then apply one pump of this primer to your fingertips, spreading it all over your face and neck in an even layer with sweeping upward motions. Allow the face primer to absorb into your skin before applying your favorite bareMInerals foundation.

    I recently ordered this primer. I like it! However, after 3 days, the pump did not work and still does not work. I have to take the solution on my finger tips to get it out of the bottle. Not of the best quality dispenser. Very disappointed.
