    Comments about Pür Minerals Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance:

    I use this directly after washing my face as my primer AND moisturizer in one. It takes a minute to dry, but then keeps my face matte and the oil from coming through all day. It seriously has helped my oily skin tremendously!
    Especially by using this and the Pur 4-in-1 Powder. My face used to be an oily mess, and using those 2 products together have seriously helped clear it up and keep my oil at bay. I love this primer! So glad I found it!

      This primer is clear and goes on easily. My Pur Minerals make up goes on smoothly and I love the coverage after the application. It lasts all day without need for touch up. I have been pleased that there has been no problem with my sensitive skin.

            Comments about Pür Minerals Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance:

            I have an extremely fair and unique skin tone, to get an appropriate foundation color I end up having to mix two different powders together. In addition to that I have extremely oily skin. This causes the foundations to separate and slide around and look shiny and patchy and horrible. I was using E.L.F Color Correcting Mineral Primer, and it just gave me an extra hour, even using Urban Decay De-Slick Powder with it. I had 4 to 6 hours max before it was -done- I switched to this primer and it was like night and day difference. It minimizes my pores and flaws, it keeps my foundations blended together, and with a little help from my de-slick powder it helps me keep a matte finish. I do feel like I end up using more of my foundation powder with it though. On a side note I have extremely sensitive skin and this does not irritate it even on my worst rosacea days. I like it.

                    I have a medium brown complexion that is very oily. I also have very sensitive skin. This has been a great product for controlling shine. It applies very smoothly without dehydrating or leaving any tacky residue. When applied as a last step after moisturizer and sunscreen it greatly reduces shine. I now use it with very light oil reducing finishing powder or a very light dusting of the pur 4 in 1. It is still very effective when used under liquid and other powder foundations. I highly recommend.

                      • 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.
