    I think that they've changed the formula because I used to love this brand/product and now it doesn't stay on as well.

        Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Loose Powder:

        I'm a long-term acne sufferer (10 years), and my skin has never been as clear as it has been since I started using this product. Maybe that's a coincidence or a combination of things, but I do know that this powder doesn't irritate my ultra-sensitive skin or break me out the way every other foundation has. I LOVE THIS. I would recommend it especially to those with acne prone sensitive skin. The coverage is hard to describe - I would describe it as sheer, but buildable to full. I mostly have hyperpigmentation (acne scars) in my cheeks, which I think are a lot harder to cover than regular blemishes/breakouts because they're darker and deeper. This product alone doesn't cover my hyperpigmentation 100% completely, but enough to make it not noticeable at all, which is good enough for me. When I first started using this, I had more breakouts and spots, and a couple of layers of this covered those easily. I use this product by itself after moisturizer and it goes on like a dream and stays all day. This is NOT a matte foundation, which I'm actually very happy about because I think matte foundations accentuate acne more. I have fairly oily skin, and by the evening this product looks a little shiny, but it stays on all day and I think the non-matte satiny finish makes it look and feel super natural and glowy and effortless. The only drawbacks are that because it's a loose powder it flies around and gets on my mirror when I apply it, and also that they only sell 2 shades in stores so I have to buy mine online. But long story short: PLS TRY THIS IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE ACNE PRONE SKIN.

              Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Loose Powder:

              I have terrible skin. I was going to get on Acutane last year. If anyone with bad acne here you know what that is. Anyway I have ice pick scars, unevenness, redness, and active break outs all the time. I'm 26 and have tried a lot of different makeup for covering it up. This is the only makeup I go back to. It's full coverage. I use a lot and it lasts about 2-3 months. Sometimes I apply another layer at lunchtime bc of oil. I do not use a liquid foundation so layering is normal. with this powder I don't need foundation. And it is a tad messy but every loose powder is. This is the only makeup powder I have tried that makes my skin looks matte and flawless. Unless you get super close then you can see the umevenness of the scars. I have tried one of everyone's fav Mac pressed powder and that doesn't even compare to this. I could apply layers of that and the more I'd put on the more the color changed and it didn't cover anything. This formula is made for women with acne issues. And I have one of the worst cases. The derm told me I had at least five diffferent types of acne and I'm a perfect candidate for the drug acutane. If this can cover my acne and scars then it can for you. This price compared to all the other brands is just a bonus.
