In what order?

I just bought the BareMinerals Prime Time primer. I also use an AHA moisturizer and sunscreen daily. Should I put the primer under these things, over them or inbetween them. I am 39 and getting lines so I need everything I am using. TIA!

    RedCatWaves seems to be the resident expert on this type of question. Hopefully she'll see this and answer. My guess would be moisturizer, sunscreen and then primer with time for each layer to absorb before adding the other. But I'm just guessing.

    i would skip the moisturizer and just do sunscreen and makeup.

    that's what i do, but i don't wear mineral makeup.

    I would treat the primer as if it were a makeup and the sunscreen as if it were skin care, therefore the order would be:

    AHA moisturizer

    I don't think you need to have wait-times after any of these things before applying another layer. The AHA moisturizer likely isn't acidic, and acids are really the only things that require wait times. I'd just let them dry a bit before moving on to the next thing.

    I tried it just like RedCatWaves said and it worked great. My face was not greasy and the bare minerals seemed to last longer. Thanks to all who helped!
