    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.
