    I use this product over my foundation and even over my blush sometimes as an all over finisher. It makes the skin soft and smooth.

      Comments about PÜR Cosmetics Balancing Act Oil Control Powder:

      I have seriously oily skin that can make me feel uncomfortable especially around the time I'm getting off of work around 6pm. I have tried multiple products from Benefit, Makeup Forever, Neutrogena that are supposed to help matte oily skin but non compare to this. It brightens my face and lasts longer than I could ever imagine. I am so glad I found this brand and this product.

        I received a small compact of this as a gift with purchase and threw it in my purse with no thought. Six months later I am purchasing a regular size compact. I love this for a quick touch up and correcting the shine mid day or evening. It's become my go to.

          I like to try new things...I tried this for a finishing touch on my morning make up, or touch ups through out the day. I don't like the caked on make up look, and this did the job. I can touch up my nose shine and it blends well.

            I bought this product to control my very oily T-zone but after a few hours it caked up and settled in my creases. I also felt my face really heavy with makeup. I went back to Ulta to return it and one of the girls told me that she didn't really recommend their products.

              I don't have bad skin, I just needed something light for a base coverage. I don't like having a solid color because it changes the tone of my face, so I really liked this since it equally covered my face nicely!

                  Does this come with any kind of applicator like a pad/sponge?

                    A:

                    Balancing Act does not include an applicator. Pür Minerals recommends using a powder brush when applying Balancing Act.

                    A:

                    You can certainly use Balancing Act alone for a marvelously matte, all-natural look! It provides sheer coverage.
