I am so excited to share with you my review of PUR Minerals. I was selected to try 4 of their new products including their best-selling 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation.

I do not wear a lot of make-up but the make up I do wear, I want to be light and easy on my skin. My complexion has been fairly uncomplicated throughout my life. However, as I get older, I’m noticing more issues. I have red patches, under eye circles, blemishes and my skin can’t figure out if it wants to be dry or oily.

I’ve been using the PUR Minerals products for the past 2 weeks and I LOVE them! I actually did see improvement in my skin after using PUR Minerals. My blemishes have cleared up and my skin just feels great. It’s amazing! The product is easy to apply and stays true to what it says it can do.

I took a before and after picture so you can see the difference. (I don’t usually let people see my face without makeup so you all are pretty special!) ;)

Before                            After

Here are the products that I was able to try out:

NEW! 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation with Skincare Ingredients:

Didn’t think our original 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup could get any better? Well, it has. Our newly enhanced formula has everything you love about the original 4-in-1 and more-same great coverage, same lightweight feel, same no-mess mineral makeup, but now with NEW built-in skincare ingredients, clinical results and sophisticated packaging. The 4-in-1 Pressed Foundation is best applied using a full-coverage brush. Apply in circular motions to achieve an even and flawless finish.

NEW! 4-in-1 Mineral Tinted Moisturizer:

Your moisturizer, primer, foundation and SPF 20 all in one! This innovative 4-in-1 formula infuses the skin with powerful hydrators and proven correctives, including sodium hyaluronate and Pür’s exclusive Ceretin Complex-a one-of-a-kind ingredient engineered to radically renew the skin without irritation. Use it alone for a one-step, ultra-natural complexion or as a hydrating, broad-spectrum base for mineral makeup application. To apply, smooth a small amount onto clean skin and blend for desired coverage.

NEW! Disappearing Act 4-in-1 Concealer:

Create a flawless complexion for today and tomorrow with Pür Minerals’ 4-in-1 concealer with built-in skincare ingredients. Put an end to unsightly eye lines, dark circles and blemishes for good with salicylic acid, brightening Waltheria Extract and Pür’s problem-solving Ceretin Complex, featuring purified, nonirritating retinol and moisture-maximizing ceramides. Easily blendable and buildable, Disappearing Act brightens, balances and lifts the skin’s appearance with minimal effort. To apply, dab a small amount over desired area and blend using clean fingers or a brush. Apply generously to problem areas and visible imperfections.

NEW! Pressed Mineral Blush in Polynesian Pink:

Add a fresh pop of color to your spring look with our newest Pressed Mineral Blush in Polynesian Pink. This island-inspired shade gives cheeks a light, natural glow that lasts all day. As with all of our mineral makeup products, it is free of petroleum-based oil, alcohol, talc, fillers, fragrance, preservatives and chemical dyes. After applying 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup, sweep Pressed Mineral Blush over the apples of your cheeks, blending up to your hairline.


Now here’s something that I bet you’re going to LOVE:

Across all of the blogs participating, 20 readers will win a Spring Kick-Off Kit including our new 4-in-1 pressed mineral foundation and tons of new spring arrivals. One Grand Prize winner will also receive a FREE iPad!
