I almost stopped using Bare Minerals...until...


I've been using liquid foundation for years and loved the mineral foundation concept. I tried several other brands first (why, I don't know) and they simply didn't give enough coverage! So I finally tried Bare Minerals and couldn't believe how good it worked for me...except it seemed to highlight the fine lines around my eyes. As a matter of fact, I didn't know I HAD them until I used Bare Minerals for the first time...YIKES! I discussed this with the girls at the salon where I buy my product and they gave me a sample of Prime Time. They told me to apply it over my moisturizer after it had a couple of minutes to set in, then use only a squirt or squirt and a half of Prime Time and give it a couple of minutes to set in as well. Then apply my foundation. IT WORKED! No more fine lines!!! And, as an extra bonus, I found the foundation glided on more smoothly than on bare skin and I needed less product. I have an oily t-zone and get tired of touching it up all day and the regular formulation of Prime Time didn't help that. I ordered this formulation because my salon didn't carry it. It works so well for me that they carry it now! I don't have to touch up all day and my foundation looks so much more like my bare skin than I ever imagined! To me, the secret is...give your moisturizer time to set in, apply the Prime Time lightly and let it set in as well before applying the Bare Minerals.

This product works!


I tend to have extremly oily skin and have found that this product has greatly reduced the amount of times that I must blot my face throughout the day. It works much better for me than the original version. After applyiing you should allow 8-10 minutes for the product to dry or it can "flake" or begin to peel off like a mask.
