The New Neutralizing Primer from bareMinerals!

As the bareMinerals' products rule my make up bag at the moment (and will probably stay for some time – no point in finishing this affair while I enjoy it!) I have to let you on one of my recent purchases and a brand new launch - Prime Time Neutralizing foundation primer.

The new bareMinerals foundation primer - Prime Time Neutralizing foundation primer

To describe it in a few words – "it’s like a primer but it’s not a primer... it’s even better than a primer!" There are a few things that I question about the product: the colour and consistency; but the product itself, once applied, is fantastic! Delivers the results and works great with my skin!

The benefits:

This product works like a primer, even though it doesn’t look and feel like it. Its consistency is more of a lotion, so it takes a bit more of smoothing it onto the skin. Once applied and sunk in, my skin is completely smooth.  And the colour (sorry bareMinerals!) but it looks like a bird poo...  Have a look at the photo below:

Once I pass the stage of looking at it and apply it onto my face it does what it says on the tin! The colour helps to neutralise any redness on my face (spots and blemishes) and the skin feels nourished and ready for my foundation. However, before I apply the foundation, I wait about 3 mins as I think it goes better on once the product is fully absorbed, but don’t get me wrong the product sinks in really quickly leaving that nice smooth feeling – it doesn’t sit on your skin!

Last but no means least are the minerals that this product contains. Also, there is a fresh smell so it’s great to use. I’ve noticed an improvement on my skin when using this product; however, I also use the night treatment so I think it’s a case of all the products working in sync.

Have you been the lucky person to buy this product as a TSV from QVC (see Stace’s post about the TSV)? If so, what do you think about it? If you haven't though, would you buy it? Let us know by leaving a comment below or tweet us @beautyu.

Stay beautiful!

  1. I haven't really tried many Bare Minerals products but so many people rave about them. Apart from the odd colour, this looks good.

    1. Thank you for your comment! My whole make up bag is mostly filled with bareMinerals products. My skin loves it!
      I'd recommend you go to any of the Bare Escentuals counters in department store and ask for a makeunder or a sample of their foundation. They are so helpful at the counters and you can see if these products are for you before you commit?!
      Hope that helps.
