Balancing Act is rated 4.64 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bye Bye Oil Along with many others, I personally have an oily T-Zone. I've searched & searched for the perfect product to really hold back the oil from shining through my liquid foundation throughout the day. I've tried it all...from high end to drugstore! Then I heard about this product. I tried it. Didn't even need to load it on...and it WORKED. Bye Bye Oily T-Zone. My daily makeup routine would not be complete without it. This product really does what it claims to do. Perfect for touch ups & a great translucent powder to help stop oil from shining through!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great powder I mainly get shiny on my t-zone, I like to dust this powder on after primer before I put my powder foundation. It really does work well to keep me looking cakey from oil on my face. Works really nice to touch up in the middle of the day, don't really have to work to blend it in. I have noticed that you can't put it on too heavy or it makes me look all powdery and it cakes up a bit during the day, so just need a little bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have in Warm and Humid Climates! I have been in search of the perfect oily skin "controller!" I have tried almost every type there is (liquid, powder, astringent, facial wash, etc). I have very oily skin thanks to the inherited paternal gene. I took a a chance on the balancing act and I love it! I highly recommend to use over purminerals pressed foundation powder. I no longer have to blot my face after applying my make up.

Hello, I use the 4 in 1 so not sure that I need anything more on top of it, but I would like to try this product on days when I don't want as much coverage as my 4 in 1. My question: I am "mature" and my skin is not really very oily any more. I actually find it more dry, especially in winters here in Seattle. Will this powder look good (by itself, after I moisturize) on skin that is normal to dry? Thank you! HollyDolly

Hello PUR Beauty! I am glad you are loving your 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup! The Balancing Act powder is a translucent powder that is designed to mattify the skin. If you are looking for a "weekend-no makeup" look, you may want to consider the 4-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer or the new Hydrafluid water serum foundation! You may find these options favorable! You could also try applying your 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup with a fluffier brush, like a powder brush, for weekends!

Good morning to ya'll from over here in Southeast Texas!!!! I am LOVIN' the purminerals products! I have the "green" primer (redness/red spider veins on cheeks), Air Perfection Cushion Foundation, and this Balancing Act Oil Control Powder! The saleslady at Ulta dressed my face up & I just loved the results!~ Before putting on the makeup sets I mentioned she put on the Ceretin Serum and then the Soak It Up moisturizer. My problem is this: Because its SO humid & yucky now..... Nothing is agreeing with me when I do all the steps I mentioned. You can see where the foundation settled into my lines now! I am all about looking natural with foundation etc! Anybody have any brilliant suggestions???? THank you so much for your time! ;)
Asked by: Texas Lady
Dear Pur Beauty! I am so glad you loved your PUR experience! I too live in humidity and can sympathize! One of the things you may want to try is adding to your skincare routine an oil controlling cleanser like In The Clear. We've got to be conscious of cleansers when addressing oily skin or humidity! The Green Primer is a fantastic primer but unfortunately it is not silicone free. So when applying the product, I use a (clean) blush brush or similar and I buff it into the skin. This will keep the product layer very (very) light on the skin while still reducing redness. You want to keep your makeup step applications very light. Go back over specific areas where you need additional coverage. Hopefully these tips will help! We are in this together!
