Coming Soon: Prime Time Primer from Bare Escentuals


Ok, I have me some high hopes for this product! I am a huge bareMinerals fan, and love many of their products – foundation, eye colors, rareMinerals nighttime treatment. One product that I could sort of take or leave (didn’t think it was bad, but just not particularly impressive) was the bare Vitamins. I am not sure if this product totally replaces bare Vitamins, or if it an additional product, but this is a primer! Woohoo!

From Bare Escentuals about Prime Time:

Prime Benefits: A little goes a long way. Just one pump of Prime Time:

  • Evens out skin texture and minimizes pores
  • Absorbs excess oil for smooth foundation application and longer wear time
  • Fills in fine lines and wrinkles to create a seamless surface
  • Corrects flaky dryness and rough patches
  • Soothes sensitive skin

Prime Features:

  • Lightweight, waterless gel dries immediately and goes on invisibly
  • Dermatologist-tested
  • Allergy-tested
  • Preservative-free
  • Fragrance-free
  • Oil-free

Prime Time Contains:

  • Soothing plant extracts including licorice, chamomile and aloe
  • Protective antioxidants and nourishing vitamins promote age-defying benefits
  • Natural oil-absorbing minerals reduce excess shine for a matte, natural satin finish
  • ZERO oils, ZERO fragrances and ZERO preservatives

I will be ordering up as soon as it comes out – it is slated to release in July, at $21 for a 1 oz bottle. Keep your fingers crossed that it is as good a product as it can be!

    I love BM. And I swear by the magic of their Re-ver Upper so I might check this out too. Thanks for the heads up :)

    Does this product contain any silicon? I find primers with this ingredient makes me break out.

    I received the e-mail announcing the release of this new product and I agree, it looks promising. But, I do believe they’ll be marketing it as a companion for the bare vitamins. In essence, to be applied after the vitamins, but before the bare minerals — they gotta make money you know. ;)

    I agree with botha, if it’s got silicone in it (and most primers are mostly silicone) I’m staying really far away from it.

    they’re already carrying this at the be boutique in the san francisco mall — even giving out free samples.

    I just purchased this yesterday at Sephora. I used it the first time today. My makeup looks like I just put it on. It is 1pm in the afternoon. I also purchased some oil blotting sheets. I might not need them now. I have combo/sensitive skin – lets see if it breaks me out. I love it so far though.

    prime time works awesome, yes it does have silicone but it does not break out my skin. I love it!!
