bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control is a skin perfecting foundation primer especially designed for oily, sensitive and problem-prone skin.
This complexion primer is another way to achieve a flawless finish with a water based formula that instantly absorbs excess shine, helps regulate oil and refines pores with minerals and natural plant extracts.
bareMinerals started the mineral makeup revolution. Their bareMinerals makeup looks like a powder, feels like a cream and buffs on like silk to give skin a natural radiance and a bare skin look.
Go bare with no preservatives, no oils, no fragrances and no other chemicals and makeup so pure you can sleep in it! Those new to bareMinerals: begin with a Get Started Kit – everything you need to fall in love with bareMinerals cosmetics and great value too. Our favourite product has to be Mineral Veil – a translucent, skin perfecting powder that is like no other face powder you have ever used.
This primer does absorb the oily really well, but I still shine like a disco ball. So sad that it is not matte. But like I said, it absorbs the oil really really good!
Maybe my oily skin is just stubborn, but this didn't really do anything for me. I had hoped for even a little bit of help but I didn't notice my skin less oily than using my regular primer (cover fx ant-acne which doesn't do much either). Rating it a 2 because it is still an Ok primer.
Really good primer, especialy for my oily skin
This primer didn't really work for me. My skin isn't very oil at all but by the end of the day it gets just a little bit shiny, which is why I bought this. I used a few times to decide how much I liked it and the result was not what I expected from BM, which is a good brand. First time I wore it I had no shiny nose or forehead but after all the makeup I used my BM mineral Veil and I think this is what kept me shineless, as the other times I wore this primer alone I was SUPER shiny after a few hours, and like I said I'm not even a very oily person at all. So It fails in it's main purpose. PROS: Dries faster than the normal primer, which is great for school/work days you want to have your makeup done as soon as possible. CONS: Does not control oil (on me, at least), and even using the smallest amount of it it will flake off when applying your foundation and it will look like if you're peeling, which makes the blending process even harder (and doesn't look very pretty either). I think I should go back to their normal primer since what made the difference was the mineral veil, at least the other one made my skin really soft and made the foundation glides on smoothly, and didn't make me an oil slick. BeautyBay was good to buy tho
I love this primer! My skin is very oily, and when I tried this primer, my foundation looked so matte the whole day! SO MUCH IN LOVE !!!
Disappointed by this primer...makes foundation to peel down and skin with many flaws
The most amazing foundation i've ever tried! My skin is oily and i tend to get breakouts often, especially when i get stressed. I've tried a lot of different foundations but all fluid and high coverage foundations that i want to use clogs my skin and gives me even more beakouts. This foundation covers all and my skin's condition get's better every day!
Just did write ups for 2 other BE primers. Another one, great for HOT days when your face decides to melt! Love the product and the site...delivery almost exocet speed and value too...
