                            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!
