I have very dry skin, especially over my nose, so I was excited to try this product. However, I found this product to be quite drying, not at all moisturizing! Might work better for people with slightly less dry of skin...
Love, love, love this powder. My skin is too dry for even liquid foundation (it cracks on my skin) but Pur Minerals, even tho it's a powder, actually lasts a decent amount of time without cracking or looking dry, especially when used over a decent moisturizer. I tried this after using BE (which was too drying for me), and I have never been told so often that my skin looks flawless! If used to soon after applying moisturizer that powder can cake, but otherwise it looks wonderful and doesn't clog my pores. Definitely agree they need more color options - I use Light, which works well but I cannot use it when I have a tan (which luckily is very rare).

Although I loved the cooling sensation of this product, I did not find it moisturizing enough. I prefer more coverage than tinted moisturizers provide, but I was planning on using this as a moisturizer with my Pur Minerals over it, but since the product was almost drying on my skin, that didn't work out. Instead I mix it with my Cerave lotion so I still get the cooling sensation (which my dry, flushed skin needs). Won't be repurchasing tho - I prefer the Korres yogurt cooling gel, which is cheaper and slightly more moisturizing.
