Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
OK, but not active enough for me to renew
I was bummed by this product. I had been using a similar product that was of a similar texture by one of BM's biggest competitors. This one was much cheaper, so I gave it a solid run. However, did not see or feel the results I had been under the competing serum. I found the other complementary products did not apply easily over this one, & all the instructions said this was the one that needed to be first on skin. The dropper is also to big & delivers too much serum.
So I held out until my sale date to purchase this. The employee in the store introduced it to me when I got my first foundation match done and I thought it made my skin feel incredible, but I just couldn't afford it. I had purchased a full line of BM makeup for my wedding, but my skin is very sensitive and acne-prone (with lots of flaking and dry patches... it can't make up its mind) and I felt like this was the missing step in my skincare regimen. For the first two weeks, my skin looked and felt great... luckily, the wedding was in that first two weeks. SInce then, my skin has been breaking out horribly and the only thing that has changed was adding the ACR Serum. I'm going to take a two-week break to see if it helps, but as of now, I'm incredibly disappointed.
So far, so good
I have only had this for a day, but after one night of using it, I woke up the next morning and my face felt soft and even looks even better, I'm excited to see how this will make my skin look!
I also agree with others, just a little pricey,but you get what you pay for. This product makes my skin feel so good. The most noticeable tightening up the turkey neck area. I also use the wrinkle serum, don't need both. This BE product all is needed.
Although this product is pricey, it's worth it! I have extremely dry skin due to the fact that every night I use benzoyl peroxide on my face to help with acne. My skin was so tight and flaky and literally every moisturizer I used did nothing to help! Not even kidding. I was a little hesitant to use this product because it is a type of oil, but I gave it a shot anyway because I needed my dry skin gone! I used it just one night hoping that when I woke up my skin was going to look and feel better. And sure enough it did. I was surprised that I didn't even break out. Not one pimple emerged on my face, and boy, let me tell you how surprised I was about that. My skin is still a bit dry but it's definitely better than before! My redness was reduced, and I noticed a glow to my skin tone. I recommend this to anyone who's looking for moisture and beauty to their skin.
active cell night serum
i tried the sample sent to me with my order and i really love it. my skin looked fresher when i applied my makeup in the morning, which in turn make me feel even more confident. I love this product.
In love with this product!!!
OMG!!! This is one of my favorite BE skincare products! I've been using BE skincare products for over a year now and absolutely love how my skin feels up to now. I can say I have smooth skin because of this. Thank you BE for your amazing products, i'm never changing to anything else..
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.
