Biolucent Mineral Brightening Treatment
Kiss from the sun
I love the way this makes my face feel in the morning. I wear it under my foundation and I look like I have been kissed by the sun. I can where it alone and lip gloss and still look great. I don't have uneven skin as far as blemishes so I can't speak to that. But it is a great brightener.
Love the brightening, but why?
I received this as a sampler with an order, and I've been using it regularly every night with my BE nightly routine. I love the fact that it brightens. It adds a wonderful glowy type of look to my face, but I haven't seen any kind of change with regard to my skin tone becoming more even.
The other thing is that I've had the same issue with it getting clumpy. My nightly facial routine takes about 15-20 minutes between cleansing and the finish. I'll wash my face, blot, let dry completely. Then I'll add one of my BE night products, go do something else to let dry. Then I'll add the Biolucent, go do something to let dry. Then add another BE product, go do something to let dry. It doesn't matter how much time I have in between application of products when I use the Biolucent I always end up having clumps when I'm rubbing my face trying to wake up in the morning. It's kind of a gross feeling first thing in the morning. I definitely won't be purchasing this...the sampler was enough.
Definitely worth the buy!
I've been using this twice a day for about three weeks and can see the sun spots on my cheeks diminishing already. My skin feels smoother and tighter which allows foundation to apply easier. I was concerned that nothing short of a prescription cream from my doctor would produce these kinds of results so I'm glad that BE has added this to their skincare line.
Oy Vey! My skin is so broken out!
I've been using the Bare Escentuals line for approximately 5 yrs now and rarely have breakout. This is the first product to ever treat my skin this way, overnight my face and neck are extremely broken out with hard bumps on my chin-line. I stopped using it immediately, but I'm still working on clearing up skin. How embarrassing, I had to go to a dinner this broken out!
Love this brightener!
Got a sample of this when I was in the store the other day, I love the way it looks and feels on my skin. I've used it just 2 days and I can see results already in some acne marks on my face. I haven't had any problems with it balling up on my skin. If this is happening to you, you are probably using too much and not giving it time to dry. I am definitely going back to purchase.
Biolucent Mineral Brightening Treatment
I have oily skin, and so was a little hesitant about getting this product because I didn't want it to make me look even oilier! However, I did want the benefits of better-looking skin (since I do have a lot of dark spots and acne scars). This stuff is a miracle! It has made my skin look so much clearer, smoother, and even glowy in a "glow from within" way! It is also very absorbent; I can even wear it under my makeup in the morning, which is almost unheard of for this oily-skinned girl! (I don't use any other moisturizers, so I don't have the gumming problem). It's definitely miraculous and helped me to be more confident in my natural skin. Love this new Holy Grail product! I use 1-2 pumps; it spreads really well.
my new favorite part of my make-up routine!!
I got a sample of this with my last purchase, used once a day after washing my face and before putting on face lotion. After a week my skin was softer and I was using half the amount of face lotion as before! My face feels smoother and softer! It even helped reduce my breakouts and blemishes! No beauty product has ever done that for me before! The only reason I didn't give this five stars is it hasn't helped brighten the dark circles under my eyes at all. HOWEVER, I LOVE this product and can't wait to get the full bottle!!!
Broke me out
I really liked this when I first began using it but it broke my face out.
Brightens with time
I got the free sample they were giving out a while ago. I have some red spots from past breakouts that stubbornly refused to fade. I have tan skin, so spots in general take FOREVER to fade even if they're tiny pimples. So I was really excited to try this brightening treatment. I used it 1-2 times a day right after I cleansed and before I moisturized. I have very sensitive and dry skin, so I was a little worried about burning or hives, but I had absolutely no reaction to this. I noticed that by the end of week 2 or so (using it 1-2 times a day) that the red patches were almost completely gone!!! Now, I normally have a pretty even complexion everywhere else, so I didn't expect to see a difference in other areas, but I did! My face glowed and looked so dewy and healthy! I don't even feel like I need foundation! I'm in love with this, and this will be the first product I buy next!
If you're having trouble with pilling, it could be you're not exfoliating enough on a regular basis. I know for dry skin it's important to exfoliate at least every other day. Also, like others have mentioned, let it have a minute or so to soak in before applying moisturizer. I used it up to twice a day and never had pilling if I did that.
I really love this....BUT...
I love this product. Within 3 days I noticed my skin tone was more even and the broken capillaries in my cheeks were much less noticeable. BUT...when I attempt to follow with my moisturizer and/or primer, the brightening cream begins to "gum up" or harden into small clumps. It is impossible to apply my BE foundation when this happens and I have to wash it off and reapply and then skip the moisturizer and primer. I am not sure what to do about this. At this time I am skipping the last 2 steps (that is how well the brightener works).
I will continue to try different combinations to see if I can find one that works. My next attempt will be to apply the moisturizer, followed by the brightener and then the primer.
Wish me Luck!
