            Comments about PÜR Cosmetics Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance:

            This was purchased by my mother right before her 40th HS reunion, and she told me she had numerous compliments on her complexion. What you don't know is that she has rosacea and a rough textured, hyper-pigmented patch patch that likes to soak in make-up and make it look even darker. The primer works just like it's supposed to- evens out the skin texture, keeps it hydrated, and keeps your make-up where you put it, instead of it gradually wearing off throughout a long work day. Also great- no weird fragrances, it doesn't irritate, no silicones, and it washes off easily. This is her third tube, so yes, worth buying again.

                    The primer is best I have ever used and works great with my combo type skin (oily & dry). The application of Pur mineral foundation is great after I used this primer. Plus I don't feel a heaviness from it at all.

                    Comments about PÜR Cosmetics Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance:

                    I'm surprised at the bad reviews. Normally I wash my face and moisturizer with aloe Vera gel first as directed by the product (apply to clean moisturized face). Once the moisturizer is dry then you apply the primer and let it dry. My only negative about this product is its harder to spread. It does cause a little tight feeling but my face was still moisturized. Next apply the make up. I live in Louisiana and normally by lunch my face is a glistening oily mess that constantly needs blotting. Today was my first time using this product and almost 12 hours later it looks like I've just applied my makeup.

                        Hi PUR Beauty,
                        Though PUR uses a small amount of Salicylic Acid in the primer, we do recommend consulting with your dermatologist when using prescription or strong acne products prior to starting any new products.

                      Does this product have any fragrance and is will it clog my pores? I have extremely sensitive and oily skin with lots of acne scars and I was hoping that a primer might help my makeup look better. Will this help?

                        A:

                        Pür Minerals Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance is fragrance-free, oil-free, and silicone-free, so it is ideal for those who find traditional cosmetics to be irritating. It is designed to help control oil and shine and to clear breakouts. Although it is not claimed to correct acne scarring, its bluish hue helps to neutralize the appearance of blemishes.

                        The Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance is oil-free and silicone-free, which sets it apart from many "traditional" primers. Its lightweight texture makes it ideal for those who don't care for the feel of "traditional" primers. We definitely recommend testing it at your nearest ULTA Beauty store to experience it for yourself! :-)

                    • Q:

                      I have very complicated skin. I get tight, dry, flaky patches in my T-zone but mostly around my nose & mouth. On top of that I get oily in my T-zone as well. I don't understand how I can have the tightness & flakiness of dry skin but also get the most oil production in the same areas. On top of that I have very sensitive skin that will break out from harsh ingredients & synthetic fragrances. I am looking for something that won't make my skin feel dry & cakey after I've applied my makeup, won't emphasize dry patches & will help with oil production throughout the day. Will this product answer those needs & if not is there another product in the line that you recommend. Thanks so much!

                        A:

                        The salicylic acid within this product's formula will help to address the oiliness of your T-zone as well as help to prevent any blemishes. It also contains Pentavitin, a deeply hydrating ingredient that will help to address your skin's dry areas. To eliminate flaky dryness, we recommend exfoliating regularly using a scrub or peel (a few times weekly). We also recommend moisturizing using a lightweight oil-free moisturizer prior to applying this primer. Doing so will help ensure that the primer applies smoothly and evenly for a flawless finish. We hope this helps! Please note that we offer skin consultations and advice at your nearest ULTA store, as well!

                        This depends on what your primary skincare concern is. The green primer (Correcting Primer Redness Reducer) is best for those whose primary skincare concern is redness and irritation. The lavender primer (Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance) is best for those whose primary skincare concern is excess oil and breakouts.

                        Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance provides up to 72 hours of serious hydration by attracting and binding water to the skin. If you have an oilier skin type, you may find that this product can take the place of your moisturizer. It can also be applied over your existing moisturizer, before you apply your foundation.
