bareMinerals Deluxe Prime Time BB Primer-Cream SPF 30 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 245.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Primer Out There - Bring Back the Deluxe Size This is the best primer by far I have ever tried. I have tried several high end primers, and this beats them all. My make-up looks better, my skin is smooth and even before I put my make-up, and strangely if I wanted to leave the house with just this primer and no foundation, I actually could. I love that this has an SPF in it, but it is so light weight. I am just sorry I didn't try this sooner, so I wouldn't have wasted my money on other primers. Please bring this back and keep this as a permanent product in your line. I never want to be without this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tint Colors Are EXTREMELY Forgiving! This is one of my two favorite primers (the other is Laura Geller's "Spackle") and I wouldn't be without either one. I'm a big fan of primer with SPF under SPF foundation and Prime Time gets me off on the right foot when applying make-up. You do want to give the product a vigorous shaking to make sure the bottle contents are completely blended, especially when first using a new bottle. Even though I purchased this in the fair, as I am extremely fair, I also bought it in the light and medium shades just to take advantage of the wonderful price on a deluxe size as the lighter shades continued to sell out. I figured I'd give away anything I couldn't use. To my surprise and delight, I can use all three shades, fair, light, and medium, and they all look great. The tinted color is extremely sheer, so sheer that I don't need to pull any color onto my neck. All three tints, look like me and all three work just dandy, with or without make-up. Who wouldda thunk it? Now I cannot say whether or not this "system" works in reverse--applying a lighter shade to a darker skin tone. It might look ashy or ghostly--like me in calamine lotion--but I really can't say. And I don't know if the deepest shade would be workable on me, or even the tan shade. At some point in the darker colors, I might get that pumpkin look. But, if you're very fair like me and your shade is sold out, you can easily go one or even two shades darker in this tinted primer and look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You have to SHAKE the bottle! I have used this protect since it was introduced and I LOVE it. If you have rosacia this product is a must. Now for everyone who complains it's nothing but oil you simply need to SHAKE IT. When you first get it you really need to shake it as the ingredients have separated. When I do that very first pump if it comes out as an oil I know I still haven't shook the bottle enough. After that first time I shake the bottle about a minute before each use. My bottles never clog, it dispenses perfectly and it is a wonderful cream. I hope this helps a lot of you and bottles won't be returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the Same I had the old Prime Time from when Leslie Bloggett owned the company. This new BB Primer does not have the same coverage. Could never wear it alone without foundation. Seems since Leslie is not involved in the day to day with the Shiseido, the company that bought Bare Minerals, the products are not as good. Sad!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product This is a good product but the delivery system is dreadful, I agree. Very bad design. I took the whole pump out and found a little cap that fit on the bottle. Now when I shake it, it comes out smooth on my finger. It goes on matte, so if you don't like that look you might want to put some moisturizer underneath. Great if you don't feel like full on makeup. And it has SPF!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY FAVORITE PRODUCT This is the only item from Bare Minerals that I use, but this BB Primer cream with SPF30 is really fantastic. I put this on and it smooths the skin so that actually no other foundation is needed for me. It does not leave your skin greasy. I have it in medium and tan. The complaints about the spout are an issue but I just take the cap off and improvise. Love this product so much, I would not let the dispenser keep me from buying it.
