                    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.

                          Is this primer ok to use if you don't have oily skin? Mine is combo and very sensitive. I chose this because off it being free of silicone and fragrance.

                            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!

                            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.

                            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.

Its lightweight texture makes it ideal for those who don't care for the feel of "traditional" primers. We definitely recommend testing it at your nearest ULTA Beauty store to experience it for yourself! :-)

                        • 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!

                            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!
