    Comments about PÜR Cosmetics Balancing Act Oil Control Powder:

    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!

          I had been looking for a great oil control powder for a long time. The search is over! This is one of the best products I have used to control the shine in my t zone. I only have to touch up my face once during my 10 hr shifts. If you need oil control, this product is for you!

              Comments about PÜR Cosmetics Balancing Act Oil Control Powder:

              This product is a miracle when applied. It instantly mattifies my super oily skin. BUT only for a short while and then my skin is oily again. I continuously have to reapply but then again nothing keeps me matte all day. I'd still recommend and I'd still purchase. Wish it came with a mirror because that's all you need as touch up when it comes to our products!

                Comments about PÜR Cosmetics Balancing Act Oil Control Powder:

                Let me start off by saying that I just love Pur Minerals as a whole! This stuff is incredible! My super sensitive skin hasn't experienced any breakouts while using this product, which is common with all Pur Minerals products. My face is usually an oil slick after 2-3 hours, but this powder keeps me shine-free all day, without have to touch-up or blot. I recently went to a family picnic and played with the kids in the sun all day. I expected my make up to be running down my face, but it looked just as good as when I applied it in the morning! In the Texas heat, that is incredible staying powder. It is a very sheer powder, so I wouldn't advise using it for added coverage. Other than that, this stuff is hands-down the best mattifying product that I have ever used! A definite must have!

                  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.
