Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
Don't know why this works, but...
First off, I gave this 4 hearts because of the price. I'm not saying it doesn't deserve it, but for the cost I think you should get a little more. Now, I have no clue why this doesn't make my skin break out. It feels a little tacky going on, so I expected to break out after a few days of use. Not one bit!!! I started using this at the tail-end of our brutally hot summer, with other BE skin care products. I'd put it on before bed. It didn't feel heavy, but it didn't absorb completely into my skin. When I woke up in the morning, my face looked fresh, dewy and rested. I was surprised. I continued using it until I was almost out, then I stopped because I thought I could skimp and do without. In that time, I had some breakouts that left dark spots and a little scarring. Majorly bummed. Two months later, I realized I had some serum left and got 4 more uses. I'm surprised...not only does my face look fresh and hydrated (now freezing winter), but the dark spots look like their fading a bit! No joke! I went to my local boutique and bought another bottle. To make it last, I use it every other night. That seems to work well. Oh, still no breaking out :-)
Got this as a sample when it first came out and results were immediate. I mean what product actually works on the first night right? usually these costly products say results in a week or two but results from this product were evident the next morning. I wash my face and apply this product. That's it!!! no moisturizer over it, and no mixing with other products. It's that great on its own. The Multi-Wrinkle Repair says it can be combined with this product but if that product was so great for $50 it should be able to do what this product does. I cannot live without this night serum. A little dot goes a long way so you definitely get your moneys worth here.
I used the samples I was given and it lasted a long time. My skin felt smoother and no more skin dryness. I love it and recommend it to everyone
I first bought the starter set 2 days ago. The Active Cell Renewal Night Serum came as a sampler, I used it right away, and it has provided amazing results right away! I woke up this morning and there were no more bags under my eyes and the fine lines have faded. I can only imagine what a month of using the product will do! I am on line to buy my first bottle!
I use this in the mornings before my wrinkle serum and moisturizer and at night if I don't use retinol. It is great; my skin is no longer dry and flaky. I believe that it not only moisturizers the skin but draws the other products into the skin. After having allergic reactions to so many other products, I'm sticking to all Bare Escentuals products for my face now.
If you use only one thing...wow....
I'm not the type that uses or is good about using face, eye, neck cream. I need to be better about it. however, I tried this product on a whim thinking..gosh, I have been trying a lot of different spot creams and things...I love the BE brand and decided to give it a shout..plus the 'clinically proven' always gets my attention.
Well....they say put a pearl size amount in your palm and use it all over your face. Mmm hmm.. I guarantee the first time you use it you might use a little more. I applied some and instantly my skin felt 20 years younger. I applied more...I couldn't get enough the first time I used it until my whole face felt 20 years younger. I thought...wow...if it's that much better to the touch..I can't wait until I wake up tomorrow to see what happened overnight. And wow. This product is the nicest product I've used, almost ever..if not ever. It's incredible and I adore it and will never ever go without it again. I am tempted to put it on morning and night but sticking to night so far.....Thank you for creating this product and please don't ever discontinue it.....I'm deeply enamoured and it's the first time I've been excited enough to never miss a night! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This Fixes EVERYTHING
This product is for everyone. I feel like every skin issue can be solved or diminished with this product. My skin is more even toned and I feel like any blemish that I get doesn't last as long when I use this product. Even the texture of my skin has been improved.
It makes your skin look so smooth! I used this around my eyes along with their eye cream, and wow! I have early sings of aging around my eyes. I have the puffy bags and dark circles and a touch of the smile lines around my mouth. I put this on and slept with it over night. I was a little worried it would make my me break out because of my oily skin, but to my surprise it didn't! The product is an oil consistency, but it sinks into your skin easily. I would recommend it, even for oily skin in a heart beat! It just plumps up the skin and smooths everything out. My wrinkles aren't too deep yet, so I'm not sure on how it works on very deep wrinkles, but for me it was perfect.
I could not believe how fantastic my face looked and felt the instant this serum went on my face! I received a small sample and loved it. When I ran out, I thought "Well, that was nice." ;( Then I realized that this stuff was what my thirsty tired face needed. Now that I have been using it for months, I see it really is cost effective. I use less layers of moisturizer, even in winter. My skin is never greasy in the T-zone, and my dry areas are not dry at all. I was using layers of thicker moisturizer from another brand (sorry!) when the temperature dropped, and was not thrilled with the results. As soon as I used this again, I realized how much I needed it! My skin and I thank you, Leslie!
Talk about "escentual"!!!
As I read all the other reviews, I had to tell you my story. Another young lady had written about using her free samples. I did the same, but I'm so broke that I even cut the sample open and wiped the inside of the packet on my face. I'm afraid to use it every night because I'm scared I will run out. However, tonight I"ve made the decision to use it every night. I tend to use too much because of my eye issues, then I want to use it every where else. Leslie, I promise to follow directions and use a pearl size drop (a very large pearl) and then start with my eyes and then the rest of my face. This is a little hint for all the beautiful woman that use this or other similar products to moisturize and prevent aging lines. Take your product and massage it on your upper lip. You need to stretch the lip over your front teeth so you can get to that line where the lip meets your face skin. You can then get in really deep and MASSAGE softly into the creases that have already started, that don't show yet. Go right into the corners of your mouth as well. It's amazing what it does for all those other parts we don't see YET!! To all my BE friends, $50 is not a lot of money for a miracle. When I bit the bullet and finally purchased it, it didn't hurt at all says my Visa card. Thanks for your time. Pat T
I use this every night along with my eye cream and moisturizer (also Bare Minerals). I have problems with laugh lines, but I believe this serum helps with that and makes my skin extremely soft. I read in a beauty magazine that serums are best moisturizers and should be used at night when you are resting, after using this I believe they are right! I can definitely tell when I run out. A must if you have fine lines!
Awesome product. love it!
Awesome product. love it!
Awesome product. love it!
Had high expectations...
And maybe that was my biggest problem. I read the reviews and was thinking, wow, maybe this product would be the one to alleviate my flaws. However it really does confirm how much my face is seriously problematic. I have been using this product for weeks now. I still have huge pores on my nose and I'm not sure if the whiteheads are coming out more now because of the product and if that is a good or bad thing. I know pores will never go away but mine just never minimize at all no matter what I seem to use. I really don't see any huge impact on my face when it comes to moisture, an even tone or a balanced complexion. Maybe I'll see an improvement as I continue to take it.
Love this Serum :)
I have been using 3 difference kinds of applications each day which totaled to approx $400.00 per 3 mths to keep my face looking young. When this serum came out last year I tried it. Loved it !!!! I wear it all day long after my face is washed and under my BE make up. I don't need anything else. My foundations go on better. My pores are smaller, skin softer, smother, hardly any lines for a 52 yrs old. As one person states. It give you confidence. I don't have to spend a fortune to get a fabulous serum. Thanks BE
I found my forever face!
This is the most amazing product ever. I can't wait to get ready for bed so that I can use this on my face. I have really sensitive skin and get blocked pores really easy. Since I started using this product, I have noticed less blocked pores and no skin reaction at all. Rarely can I find a product that doesn't irritate my skin. I will use this product forever and know that my skin will just keep getting better and better. I call it my forever face. Get this for yourself, you will not be sorry.
Makes my Face so soft!
Everytime I ordered something, I would get a sample of this, and I would use it, and the very next morning my face would be soft and smooth and even break out spots were less red and starting to heal up. I finally decided to just order a bottle instead of trying to squeeze every drop out of the little samples that I was getting. Even after washing my face when I wake up in the morning, I don't feel I need to put moisturizer on because my face feels so good, make up goes on smoother and looks better. I'm highly impressed with this product and recommend it to anyone to try. I don't feel it leaves my skin oily at all and I have combination. I find myself constantly touching my face because it's so smooth and soft.
Complete change in my skin
I started using this product about 3 months. I usually apply it at night because I have oily skin and the moisture producing Active Cell Renewal Night Serum causing me to be extremely oil during the day. I can total tell I difference in my skin when I wake up. If I have pimple that I have picked with, the serum has already began to reduce the of the pimple looks better by the next morning! I'm 25 and this is one of my favorite products!
Being a former BE employee(which they are a Great company to work for!) I received several of this serum for Free, I wondered if it was multipurpose so I tried an extra bottle on some problem areas of mine, ie: stretch marks, the red/purple ones.... After trying several different products on them, this is Amazing!!! In just 2 days off twice a day application my stretch marks are almost gone!!! I mean I love it for face but seeing as I am 24 years old I don't have very many wrinkles or sunspots to test on, but I am in Awe of its effect on stretch marks... 2 days!!! Wow I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to erase those unsightly red marks!!!
This product is awesome. Even after the first use my skin felt so much different. Not only did I notice a visual difference but also my skin was so soft and hydrated! Love this product!
So glad I tried the sample of this!
I received a sample of the Active Cell Renewal Night Serum, and after the second night using it, I knew I had to buy it. I've never seen results like this from any of the other similar products I have tried... it really makes my skin look luminous... when paired with my BM makeup, it almost looks airbrushed! Can't wait to see how it continues to renew my skin, since it's only been a couple of days. It's a little pricey but based on what I've experienced so far, it's definitely worth it.
Very Nice Product
Purchased to use along with the MD formulation moisture defense. The two together (I use both A.M. and P.M.) have provided a noticable firmness. Hoping the effects continue as I keep using them.
Had a sample of this, tonight after my exfoliating deep cleanser I put this on my face, followed by the moisturizer. Wow!!! Within minutes my face looked fresh, glowing, beautiful! My husband noticed right away! Off to buy a bottle!
Still on the fence
I have been using this serum for a couple of months to give it time to do it's thing. Unlike most people I haven't seen dramatic results. Maybe my skin wasn't as bad to begin with? What I have noticed is after a break out my skin heals faster. The blemish or scar disappears quickly. I still have more than 1/2 the bottle left so I'll continue to keep using this product.
I received this as a free sample and tried it out with the combination skin moisturizer. I could see a difference in my complexion OVERNIGHT! Smaller pore sizes, better texture, and any acne spots I had started to clear up immediately. I haven't stopped using it since and ordered it right away. A little goes a long way. Wonderful product!
Its okay, not very impressed with this product. The first week it seemed to be great then it seems like it stops working. I wouldn't pay the price again.
Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE thisproduct!!! I had just recently switched for another facial treatment product to Bare Minerals facial treatments. This night serum just amazes me! When I first bought this product, my intention was to use it at night hence "night serum." The BM clerk gave me a tip she learned from another BM customer .... not only use the night serum at night but using it during the day as well. Oh my!!! The results are awesome! The pores on my face have really dimished and my face has an absoute MATTE finish after applying the serrum and even more flawless skin after the make-up! I highly recommend this product to all BM users. Use it during the day as well as at night!
Even works for acne-prone skin!
I have had acne since my teens, and at 26 I still battle with break outs (including cystic acne). Most beauty products seem to irritate my skin and exacerbate my acne, but not BareMinerals! Since I love the makeup so much I decided to give the skin care products a try, and this was my first. Not only does it not make me break out, I believe it has even helped clear my skin! My skin is soft, moisturized, not greasy, and glowing. It has never looked healthier. I recently switched my daytime moisturizer to the BareMinerals moisturizer with SPF for combination skin and my face wash to the deep cleansing foam- these work just as well! The blemish therapy kit is a gold mine. What fantastic products! I only wish I knew about these as a teen. If you are on the fence, try it!
I really like this product. I have a combination skin/acne prone and this product helps a lot with the improvement of my skin. I highly recommend it!!!
Good for some skin but not good for all...
I gave up all of my skin care to try the whole BE skin care line. I'll agree that my skin has gotten softer and I think discolorations have faded. However, my acne (which is fairly mild) has gotten worse, not better. It's only been a week and I'll give it one more but if it's not better, I'll have to say goodbye to the skincare and just keep the foundation (which I love).
must have for mineral makeup users
Mineral makeup is the best thing for my skin. But over time it dries out my sensitive, combination skin. This night serum deeply hydrates my skin overnight. It is pricey, but it works! My skin hasn't been this clear, bright, even, smooth and youthful in a long time.
BE is my favorite skincare because you embrace what mineral makeup is and what it isn't. Your skin care line works with your beauty products as well as our skin. Don't change a thing about your skin care products. I'm a loyal customer for life!
