LOVE This Product
I have had acne since my early teens and have used almost every product out there to treat it including Neutrogena, Clinique, Biore and even ProActive. Nothing helped and usually made my acne worse. This is the first product to genuinely work for me. I have sensitive skin that is oily but drys out easily especially while using other products. I use this both morning and night and not only does it control my acne but it clears it up and improves my skin. My skin has honestly never looked better! I highly recommend this product as a little goes a very long way. I use this along with the deep cleansing wash and I'm so happy with the results.
LOVE this product
I am 22 years old and occasionally break out now and then. I am a perfectionist when it comes to my skin and after spending costly amounts on dermatologist prescriptions I found this product. It is AMAZING. It works fast and gets your skin clear in no time. I always buy two just so I have a back-up in case I run out! I highly recommend.
I am over 55 now and for some reason have started having acne problems. I received this product as a free trial a few years back and it helped me at that time. When the breakouts started again, I remembered this and went back to using this product. It is wonderful at clearing blemishes up quickly!
Great blemish treatment product
As someone who is being treated professionally for acne, I love this product. When you see a blemish about to sneak up on you, brush a little of this on in the beginning and it helps stop the blemish in it's tracks. Another thing to love about this product is if you need to head out without make-up on, this product does help conceal a bit.
Now this will work on most pimples not blackheads/ whiteheads or cystic. ( at lease on my face) That's why a 4 not a 5. Works very well on those monthly pimples that pop up also. Will clam the redness and tenderness quickly within a day or so pimples are usually gone. Plus the soothing feeling helps while it heels. I layer it under my foundation with no issues. Nice little kit and last a while brush is soft enough not to irritate your skin plus it's nice to have a separate brush just for blemish needs.
Exceeded My Expectations
I have been battling more blemishes as an adult in my late 20s than I ever did in my teen years. I've tried drug store acne washes and creams, even Proactive but I'm left out with dried out skin, and sometimes oily patches.
I love the BareEscentuals skin care line and now use that exclusively except when I have really, really bad break outs. My face has been broken out for the last 4 weeks and has not responded to anything. After visiting a BareMinerals Boutique the sales woman recommended this product. I'll try anything! I was skeptical after seeing it was a powder, but I love tea tree extract, so I purchased it. My blemishes are clearing quickly-- within a matter of days. This may not seem quick, but I cannot stress enough how many weeks I've been treating this acne without any response and/ or it getting worse. I'm blown away by this few day response/ improvement.
My face is not oily or super dry. My skin feels healthy. Best of all, I can follow all steps of my skin care regimen cleanse to moisturize. The blemish areas are clearing up and are neither dried out nor oily. A HUGE thank you to BareMinerals and the Boutique for introducing me to this product. This will now be a constant on my club shipment.

I did not read the ingredient list closely enough prior to ordering this product. While it was very soft and tingled slightly it did not conceal anything. Additionally I am allergic to sulfas and the addtional acne fighting ingredients in this products are sulfurs. My skin looks worse two months out from trying this product for one week than it ever did with my occasional blemish prior to trying it. Read the ingredient list and insist on a better list for other products.
After reading all the great reviews on this product, I brought this as a birthday gift for myself. I was thrilled to read that it would heal and conceal my blemishes.
I was SO disappointed. This product does NOTHING to heal or conceal my blemishes! I have oily and very acne prone skin so I was hoping this product would do wonders... But no! I can't even tell that I put this product on my face because it really does nothing!
BareMinerals, your make-up is outstanding but this product is a flop for me! :(
A Must-Have for Acne!
Love it! Love it! Love it! A spot treatment that doesn't dry out your skin! No risk of a chemical burn Finally!
I am VERY prone to acne. Stress = zits. Fries = zits. Humidity = zits. I am talking full face zits. I used to have cystic ance and was on acutane for about 2 years and that did nothing. I started to use this since I am such a die hard BE addict but it didn't do anything either. I put it on morning and night until the jar was gone and I saw no difference. I feel like if you have the occasional blemish this would be okay. But anything more than that and I wouldn't get your hopes up.
