                  Great primer. Used it with bare minerals original loose powder foundation. Wouldn't wear it alone because it does have a definite sparkle factor to it, but perfect for wearing under foundation (light or heavy). Also, I have wildly sensitive skin prone to redness and acne and this caused no reaction for me.

                          Hi,
                          Thank you for your question. The Bare Minerals Prime Time Primer for Oil Control has been discontinued. The New Primer that takes its place is Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel. While this is in the Blemish Remedy category, this is still a suitable product for oily skin types. The lightweight gel glides on effortlessly and immediately dries down to an invisible matte finish, prepping skin for a smooth makeup application. It is formulated with Aspen Bark and Tea Tree oil and a Peptide Complex to help promote clear healthy looking skin. It also features an oil-absorbing mineral to help keep the skin looking fresh and flawless. Hope this helps!

It also helps combat dry patches, fine lines and excess oil and minimizes the appearance of large pores. The BB Primer will diminish the appearance of discoloration, uneven skin tone and imperfections while providing and SPF of 30. Hope this helps!
