We get a lot of email asking about our Balancing Primer Powder. The key word in the name Balancing Primer Powder is "Balancing." It was created to help bring balance to oily skin.
Featuring the ingredient Kaolin, Balancing Primer Powder gently absorbs excess oil before it can break through and disturb the finish of your foundation. It should be worn under foundation in areas where excess oil is problematic. Depending on how oily the skin is, Balancing Primer Powder can keep shine at bay for a few hours, or all day long. For extra oil-control finish your makeup with a dusting of Satin Finishing Powder.
As is often the case, our customers say it best. Terrie D., an Alima Pure customer, told us, "I use the Light Balancing Primer Powder daily and I love it! Before I used this, my face would start getting oily a few hours after getting to work. Now I can go all day long without my face feeling greasy or oily. It's wonderful!"
Balancing Primer Powder is available in three shades. Light is appropriate for foundations from "0" to "2" levels, and Olive 0. Medium works best for foundations between levels of "3" and "5," and Olive 1, 1.5, 2 and 3. Deep is a good choice for anything level "6" and darker, or Olive 4 and darker. Remember that Balancing Primer Powder is worn under your foundation, so if you get a shade that is a little darker or lighter than optimal, it won't matter once your foundation goes on.
