  • Combines the performance and coverage of a foundation with the blendability and natural finish of a loose powder.
  • Innovative sifter lid in the jar allows for mess-free application.
  • Natural kabuki brush and mirror included.
  • A 100% natural origin loose powder, formulated with 10.6% certified organic ingredients, including safflower seed oil and jojoba seed oil to moisturize and corn starch to mattify the skin.
100% Free of Harsh Chemicals. 100% Free of Synthetic Preservatives. 100% Free of Parabens. 100% Free of GMO's. 100% Free of Synthetic Colors. 100% Free of Synthetic Fragrances. 100% Cruelty Free.
  • May be worn alone or over makeup.
  • Invert jar and gently tap to allow powder to gather in tray.
  • Open sifter lid.
  • Lightly brush powder on face and neck to even out complexion.
  • For the most even application, be sure to tap excess powder from brush before applying.
  • For best results on dry to very dry skin, apply moisturizer prior to using powder.

My Experience with the Powder:
  • Price:~$12.39 CAD for 22g
  • Effectiveness: This is a versitle powder that can be worn alone or on top of foundation and concealer.  The loose powder provides me with continuous full coverage for the whole day.  The product minimizes my pores and soaks up oils, thus giving me a nice matte and natural finish all day. I haven't expereinced any irritations or break outs from using this powder.
  • Cons: No SPF protection. I dislike the stiff and rough kabuki brush and the useless tiny mirror. The powder smells like funky virgin olive oil.
  • Bottom line: A must have. I would recommend this gentle product for individuals who have oily or combination skin. This is my fave powder. I hope PF does not discontinue making this product. 
  • Grade: 9.2/10

I don't do powder, I like foundation; creaminess. I have flaky skin, but I wouldn't mind trying this powder on top of my foundation!

Cheers!

This is a much better deal than mineral powder at Sephora! I will check it out when I'm grocery shopping!

Oh ummm, forgot to ask can you do swatches of the product for me? TIA!

The photos seem too dark. Am I right? I don't think your skin tone is that dark.
