WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • Hello! Did the formulation of this primer change? I feel like my makeup is sliding off. I've never had this issue before, and I've been using the same bare minerals products for years. Thank you for your time!

    Asked by: JeanettG
    Hi JeanettG, This is the same formula you've always loved but depending on the season makeup wear may change occasionally. We suggest allowing skin care products to fully absorb into skin before applying next step and we think you may like our Combo Control Milky Face Primer or BLEMISH RESCUE Anti-Redness Mattifying Primer as an alternative option. We also recommend setting your makeup application with our Dew Mist Shimmering Setting Spray or Mineral Veil Finishing Powder.

    Is this product non comedogenic? 

    Asked by: Deanna97
    Hi Deanna97, Our Prime Time BB Primer Cream Daily Defense does not claim to be non-comedogenic. As an alternative, we suggest our Complexion Rescue Defense Radiant Protective Veil, a non-comedogenic all-in-one lightweight hydrating veil which protects the skin from indoor and outdoor light damage, evens skin tone, and adds radiance: https://www.bareminerals.com/makeup/face/all-face/complexion-rescue-defense-radiant-protective-veil/US86003.html

    Could it be used around the eye area, to provide sun protection to this delicate skin?

    Asked by: Joha
    H Joha, The Prime Time BB Primer Cream Daily Defense should be applied to face and neck in order to use as a face primer and mineral sunscreen. We suggest applying one pump onto your fingertips and rubbing them together and then spreading evenly onto your face and neck. Once the silky-smooth formula has absorbed into your skin, apply your foundation as usual. This product is intended for use on the face but we do suggest avoiding application too close to the orbital bone.
