BB creams are designed to work as a primer so you really don't need to add an additional primer to your makeup routine.

I do not feel you need a primer with this product. It wears all day for me. I think it has a built in primer.

Keep in mind that BB creams are not foundations, which is what primers are for. Foundations tend to be more mask-like, with fewer active skincare benefits. Bb Creams are a multi-purpose product that offers light coverage and evened skin tone, along with moisture, SPF, and anti-aging features.
Using a primer with a BB cream would create a barrier between your skin and the cream's beneficial properties. So no, I don't recommend it. In fact, it would be more suitable to use a BB cream as a primer itself for a heavy foundation. It would treat, hydrate, and protect while prepping the skin for another product. Just use sparingly and let it absorb first!
I feel that if you put primer on this, it would defeat a lot of the purpose of this BB Cream. It acts not only as a sunblock but moisturizer and skin care product and foundation.
You could use a primer, as I do put on a moisturizer below my BB cream as well, and have NOT had any adverse affects (no breakout, no greasy feeling). It dries matte with a little bit of a healthy sheen. I think you'll like it! :)
