        Comments about PÜR Correcting Primer Prep & Perfect:

        This product was just OK. The consistency was a little strange. It started out like a whipped mouse, and then it became very watery, and then went back to mouse (throughout the use of the tube- maybe it needs to be massaged or something to mix it up?). I guess it does what it says. It goes on quite smooth under makeup. I wouldn't say that it made a huge difference under my makeup, but it didn't cause anything adverse.

            I have been using this product for awhile now and love it. What I don't love is how the silver coating on the top of the tube flakes off and gets on my skin. I have finally had to coat the top wit nailpolish to prevent this from happening. This is also a problem with HydraGel Lift packaging. Why make a great product and then package it in an inferior container?

                Was recommended this by an Ulta employee to help control shine and unfortunately it just doesnt work for that. I have combo/oily skin and get dry patches around my nose and eyebrows. This might work for dry skin types, but definitely not for oily types.

                  I was looking for a primer that wouldn't irritate my sensitive combination skin but would keep my makeup on my face on a hot day. Not only does this primer fulfill those wishes, it also makes my skin feel amazing. I will absolutely keep purchasing this.

                            Dear PUR Beauty, you will notice with the Prep & Perfect primer that it doesn't take much! Use a small amount each day to smooth and even out the skin texture. Depending on how generous you are with the product, our PUR Beauties tend to get on average 30-45 days usage, if not more!

                            Hi PUR Beauty,

                            The Prep & Perfect Primer is great to apply all over face. Our PUR PRO Artists like to apply Prep & Perfect using a brush in order to buff the primer into the skin. For the eye lids, we suggest using Cease Crease eyeshadow primer. The eyelids have a different texture of skin so a different primer is necessary. Cease Crease also has treatment included that will smooth the eye skin to prevent creasing. To correct the under eye darkness, there are a few options. Dark Spot Reducer Correcting Primer will assist with under eye dark circles using the PUR PRO technique of buffing into the skin. Or the HydraGel Lift concealer primer is a good choice too! Apply HydraGel Lift after eye serum and moisturizer but before face primer. HydraGel Lift hydrates and treats the under eye area and preps the skin for concealer (Disappearing Act)! Any of these suggestions will provide you with a brighter, smoother under eye area!

                          Has anyone tried both Correcting Primer (white) and Primer Hydrate & Balance (purple)? Can you compare, what did you like better? I have combination skin, with a few large pores I want to cover. I intend to use this just on my nose and cheeks right under my eyes.

                            Hi PUR Beauty! You've picked two of our most popular primers for this time of year! You actually cant make a wrong choice! Hydrate & Balance (purple) & Prep and Perfect (white) function very much the same as a primer minimizing lines, wrinkles & pores and preps and smoothes the skin for foundation/makeup. They both contain PUR's age defying Ceretin Complex skincare! The "difference" is that Hydrate & Balance was created for oily skin tones and is both silicone and oil free. It has more of a gel-like texture and feels like serum when applied to the skin. if you plan to wear the primer on days you don't wear makeup, then I would suggest Hydrate and Balance! Hope that helps!

                            Hi PUR Beauty! Though Prep & Perfect Primer is PUR's most universal primer, we do recommend Hydrate & Balance primer which is designed for an oily skin type. Hydrate & Balance is silicone free and oil free so I feel you will achieve the result you desire more by using this primer. Depending on the base of your foundation, you may also want to check out Balancing Act (translucent oil control powder) for any touch ups through out the day!
