        This product is supposed to be for oily skin and to help control the oil throughout the day - I have oily skin and when I used this product I found that by lunch time my skin was so oily I was having to apply powder to absorb the excess oil - I returned this after about a week.

              *I have very oily skin and I needed something that would keep my makeup from running and smearing and a Ulta rep helped me select this. This has been truly AMAZING!! It goes on very smooth and doesn't dry white or get flaky! I will either use it alone as a base or coat a thin layer of translucent powder and it works great!! My make up last so much long and I may need to touch up with a little powder but it looks good!!*

              Comments about PÜR Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance:

              So I got a sample of this and managed to stretch it into three days, it seemed incredible the difference it made in how many flakes peeked out from under my foundation, and how much better my skin felt when the makeup came off. My desert dry skin always- ALWAYS seems to peek out from some where, normally on my nose or cheeks but wearing this rather than taking two or three hours I got five or six, and the pale, often spotty complexion I can't escape looks so much brighter. I caved after debating for three months and bought a full size, I fell in love all over again. I just wish it was a little cheaper, I was really temped to see if the blue NYX primer is a dupe for this but I hated the idea of wasting my money when I know how good this one feels. We'll see if when I run out of this if I give in to my grandma's penny pinching teachings or if I stay loyal.

              Comments about PÜR Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance:

              I love this primer! I have large pores and all the "pore reducing" primers filled with thick silicones only look good if you wear them alone. This primer looks good with foundation over it.. doesn't make the pores look bigger like most primers. I use Maybeline Matte and Poreless over it and it looks great! I still get oily but after, but after blotting several times, the makeup still lasts.

                        Hello PUR Beauty! The skin texture on the eye is very different to the skin texture on the rest of our face. We recommend applying Get A Grip eye shadow primer for the eyelids. You will notice the texture and consistency for this product is much different from face primer. You will also notice how well Get A Grip "grips" eyeshadow powder making it last all day!

                        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?

                        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.

                    • 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.
