Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 88 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Brilliantly with BM Original Foundation i got this product in a set and hadn't considered using it before that. I like it; but it's not my favourite primer. However, I do think this primer works to hold my Original foundation base better than other primers. So on days when I'm wearing BM Original, I reach for this. I found it doesn't work as well with some of my liquid foundations though. 19/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Primer Bought this primer as wanted one which wouldn't give my bad spots. I use it everyday and it has helped my skin loads and stops the foundation going blotchy! The bottle lasts forever, haven't had to buy a new one yet. Would also recommend the bare minerals powder too! 19/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Love this primer, can use under foundation for a great finish. I've also used on holiday in the evening to give a light tint. Recommend highly! 18/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hate foundation? This is for you. As a lifelong avoider of traditional foundation with a dedicated skin care routine, I have been converted by this product! A very small amount covers my face and neck; it literally glides on, leaving my face feeling exceptionally smooth and soft. Next, if you then apply a powder it will also glide on very evenly and - get this - you'll have wonderfully subtle coverage but not the dreadful caked feeling that traditional products produce. I'm hooked! 18/07/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Brilliant primer I've never used a primer before but the PrimeTime original primer was recommended to me by a friend. I went to my local stockist, talked to the assistant, and had a mini makeover with this and the Complexion Rescue foundation. I've since used this both with the Complexion Rescue and also with the Pure Brightening Serum Foundation and find it an excellent base for both. You only need a little - one pump or two - so it lasts. It makes for a nicer finish once your foundation of choice is applied as well as making your foundation last. Would highly recommend this to anyone who's never used a primer before but is looking for one to try! 18/07/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Amazing product I first got this as a little sample and I thought I'd try it out. It's absolutely amazing, it feels amazing to apply onto the skin it's really soft and your foundation just glides onto it. 18/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it! It makes my makeup last longer and makes it more even 18/07/2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very Drying As far as primers go, the texture of this one is divine. However, unfortunately this product doesn't work for me very well and is extremely drying. However, this may be absolutely perfect for those who have slightly more oily skin and wish to reduce shine! Definitely give it a go! 18/07/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Amazing product terrible packaging I love this primer. It makes a huge difference to how foundation sits on my skin and if I have a nice tan it smooths my skin tone out to where I don't even feel foundation is necessary. My only issue is the terrible pump action bottle, it means there is so much wastage!! At £22 for the product it would be nice to feel like I was getting my money's worth and not leaving a week or mores worth of product behind in the end of each bottle. A tube would be a much more suitable design. 31/05/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Helps foundation to glide on! This primer really allows the foundation to just glide onto your skin! Little really goes a long way with this one! The only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because it is a little greasy and I do prefer the neutralising primer. This one is probably perfect for people who don't have uneven skin tone or any real blemishes- that's why the neutralising primer is more helpful for me 11/05/2016

Answer: 
You don't have to moisturise if your skin doesn't need it at the time, moisturise first if your skin seems dry and flaky, wait a good few minutes for it to sink in nicely. Then apply primer. Again wait a little while until it has all sank in, then apply your makeup as usual.

Answer: 
Hi Jane, I find that a single pump of Primer is enough to cover my whole face. I have about 4 of the primers andhave never needed to use more than this for any of them. I do let the primer 'set' for about 30 secs before I apply my foundation.

Answer: 
Hi Jane. You only need to use between half a pump and a pump of our Prime Time Foundation Primer to smooth all-over the face.
