I absolutely love this stuff. I have heard from many friends that mineral wear makeup was the in thing and those that have tried it loved it...so I wanted to try it too! I looked around and found this. It seemed like I would be getting a good deal and seeing now how much I love it...it was a great deal!

It's very easy to use, feels great on, the coverage is just what I have been looking for...NATURAL! and it's even good for my skin!!!

I have a slight red in my cheeks that this covers up without making it look like I'm covering it up with a thick foundation. It just great! I had my mom try it and she loved it so much that she bought some too...even got one for my sister! It's just a great product with what I think is a very reasonable price tag.

I was getting low on my Bare Escentuals mineral foundation and decided to try the **Physicians Formula Mineral Wear**.  The price was right and I was game.  From the moment I first applied it I knew that it wasn't quite as light as the Bare Escentuals.  The Mineral Wear seemed to just lay on top of my skin.  I thought that maybe as I wore it the make-up would start to blend in with the oils in my skin.  It didn't.I decided to give it a second chance just in case I had a "fluke" bad experience.  The next time I went to use it I noticed a musty scent.  The brush had somehow acquired an old, rancid smell.  I tried washing it out but the smell remained.  I tried using a different brush but the make-up behaved the same way.  Needless to say, I haven't used it since.I realize that I may be in the minority.  Read other reviews about this product here:[Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Powder Foundation][1]

Great

By 

from Warren, OH

Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder - All Shades:

This is a great product of Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral loose powder. I love all of their products because they are hypoallergenic and they contain high quality ingredients for our skin to use as makeup. They are great for acne and sensitive skin as they are very gentle and don't cause any pores to be clogged. The powder is very light, does not have a strong scent and goes on evenly on the skin to even out the skin tone perfectly. The products can be a little pricey but I would say that they are very well worth every penny because they are very high quality and gentle on the skin. I love to find this on sale so that I can stock up and have this for a long time before having to spend a lot of money on them again. I would also greatly suggest it to my friends and anyone who wants a high quality makeup brand. It is also a loose powder so you can use as much or as little as you need.

Fav loose powder

Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder - All Shades:

The first time I used this was when I was in high school and suffered from severe cystic acne. I still suffer from breakouts every now and again and this is the makeup I go to during those times. I am not a fan of loose powders at all, but love this one. It is so light and doesn't irritate the skin at all. I have never had this product break me out. I apply this with a kabuki brush and just buff it into the skin by itself or on top of my liquid foundation. It is buildable enough to where it evens out my skin without giving it a cast or anything like that. I am a huge fan of physician's formula and this is the product I owe thanks to for introducing me to such a wonderful brand. I have repurchased this time and time again and would recommend to anyone of all skin types. I don't have any complaints about the product itself. The packaging is cute and all, but am not a fan of the brush inside. I never use the brushes that come with products anyway. I do sometimes wish this came in a container similar to those that most mineral powders are in, because the shape of the container is somewhat awkward, but love love love the powder.

Matte and Covering

Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder - All Shades:

This powder is really great for covering up any discoloration or uneven skin tone, but it's not very long lasting. I really enjoy it for mattifying my oily skin, but I'd still need some blotting paper throughout the day. All in all it's okay but not my perfect powder

One of the least noticable minderal powder's I've tried.

By 

from Jacksonville, NC

Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder - All Shades:

I am cursed with an uneven skin tone, age spots, and freckles. After caking on my foundation for years and years, I tried a few different Mineral Powders to see what all the 'hub-bub' was about. I just don't get it.

I want to like Mineral Powder, I really do, but it just doesn't cover my imperfect skin. I was 'so-so' pleased with Bare Minerals powder, but just couldn't get my head around the price. So, I tried this brand - Physicians Formula. Yes, it is much less expensive, but it looks like I'm not wearing anything! I realize this may be a plus for some women, but not for me. I wouldn't be seen out in public with this powder on my face.

The ONLY good thing about Physicians Formula Mineral Powder is that it did not make my face itch like some of the other 'Mineral Powder' products I've tried. I'm sure it's because it's lightweight and doesn't sit inside the pores. Of coure, that is a definite plus, too. But, for me, the idea of wearing a powder is to help conceal my skin's natural flaws and this one just didn't do it for me.

Sensitive Skin -LOVE IT- Wearing for Years!

By

Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder - All Shades:

This Loose Powder is great for Sensitive Skin people! I have been wearing it for 2 years now after switching from Neutrogena brand loose powder. This feels light when you put it on, gives you great coverage, and does not clog your pores like pressed powder does!

As good as the high priced designer products!

By 

from Oklahoma City, OK

Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder - All Shades:

I have dry skin and rosacea and have had a very difficult time finding a product I can use to even my skin tone. All the cream and liqud foundations I have used only highlight the dryness of my face and make it look even worse. I have been wanting to try the new mineral products out there but could not afford their high cost. I was thrilled to see the Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc Free MIneral Face Powder at a low cost. I was worried that a powder would make my skin look worse but it has the opposite results. This product makes my skin tone look more even and does not highlight the dryness. I also have very sensitive skin and have had no clogging or blemishes because of this product. I would reccommend it to everyone!

great coverage

By 

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder - All Shades:

I was using a more expensive product, Pur Minerals that was nominated by Elle magazine for 5 years, but decided to try Physicians Formula to save a little money. I was really impressed by the coverage of this product. I have very sensitive skin and had no problems with this product.The only downside I see to the product is its brushes. I used my personal brushes because the Physicians Formula brushes were too flimsy, but the overall quality of the productis more important to me than the brushes. I plan on purchasing the Mineral Wear Loose Powder again!!

Great and easy to use loose powder

By 

from Apo, AE

Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder - All Shades:

Rarely do I have time to put on a face of make up but this product is easy and looks like I've spent the time putting my face on.

I love that it's talc free and it's cheaper than BareMinerals. It does smell but so does regualr old pressed powder and foundtation. Also the brush was dumb so I bought and use a nice fan style brush.

All in all this is super easy and gives a light coverage

A nice matte, cheap alternative to BareMinerals!

By 

from Wellington, KS

Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder - All Shades:

As a TV reporter, it's important that we look our best in front of the camera. My stylist recommended a high-end mineral makeup similar to bareMinerals, but I have decided to explore with other mineral powders. This is my favorite, thus far...

The Physician's Formula brand is praised by dermatologists and has suited my dry skin well. I do wear foundation under the powder, which has a natural, more matte tone compared to other highlighters in the market.

The thing I don't like in the kit is the makeup brush. I use a high-end brush to apply the makeup for medium-to-full coverage. Then I keep these brushes as backups too apply blush or to stash in my purse.

The powder is great at disguising my acne and if I spill any, it's not an expensive loss.

This is an inexpensive alternative to other mineral brands in the market, and I plan to continue using it, even in front of the camera. I'm a believer.

Best powder foundation on the market!

By 

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder - All Shades:

I love how I can wear Physicians Formula Mineral Wear and look fantastic without feeling like I have a ton of makeup on. It has a smooth, clean finish. It works great for all over cover and spot cover. Generally I take a small amount on my finger and press onto any problem areas then blend with a think all over layer. It is great if you tend to breakout as well. Using this mineral makeup has really reduced breakouts. I did try the organic version once, but along with a horrible smell it also caused me to breakout badly. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a natural look. It really helps even skin tone and never leaves line that liquid foundation often does if not bleneded well. It even holds up relatively well through my 5 mile runs! Can't beat that!
