If you have kept up with my post about foundation fasting, you probably saw that I had photographed the box to Alima Pure’s new pressed mineral foundation. There have been multiple brands that have been releasing their own mineral products. Pressed and loose minerals. Though I have a bit of hand’s on experience with Bare Minerals from a few years ago, I chose to stay with Alima Pure. One of the biggest plus sides to the brand was that there was such a large shade selection. When they released their new pressed foundation I was elated. As much as I love mineral products, the loose minerals are so messy.

- Rosehip oil
- Evening primrose oil
- Aloe leaf extract
- Argan oil
- Calendula flower extract
- Chamomile flower extract
There is also other ingredients in this foundation. Such as shea, and sweet orange. But I won’t get too in-depth with the ingredients or the benefits of them.

- Price Differences: Pressed with compact is $34.00 and the loose is $28.00. The pressed powder replacement for the compact is $22.00
- The pressed foundation seems to carry only eleven shades. The loose powder has more than…oh, gosh. I think 40? I’m not sure on the exact number. But it’s a lot.
One thing I need to give Alima Pure props for is their new packaging. Huge thumbs up! Though I liked the old packaging, I love this one a bit more. I find more elegance in simplicity. It makes me think of high-end green boutiques that someone would find in New York.
