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.
check your allergins
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.
Helps fight my pregnancy blemishes!
I have usually had pretty clear combination skin and only broke out from being dehydrated or sometimes when it's that time of the month and my hormones are out of whack. My face actually cleared up when I got pregnant, but about 2 weeks ago I started breaking out all over my chin with very deep, painful blemishes. I look like a teenager going through puberty. Today (yes, I noticed results this quickly) I bought the Blemish Therapy and the Purifying Cleanser. I washed my face when I got home, put on some lightweight moisturizer, then used the Blemish Therapy and within a few hours I have noticed that the redness has diminished, the smaller blemishes have dried out (they will probably be gone in a couple of days), and the larger, more painful blemishes have gone down in size and are less painful- I am sure they will be gone by next week. I never write reviews for products, but I am honestly THAT impressed with this product. I can't wait to see what it does for my skin over time.
Gentle and effective
Not so hot
I brought this because of the awesome reviews. I was so excited and anticipated real results. The product does indeed dry out the face which I know is good for acne but it didn't prevent or even really speed up recovery of acne. Use at your own risk.
I bought this after i read about it and the reviews. It didn't help what so ever. I would get blemishes and try to treat them before with this product and it didnt do anything to prevent it.
I love this product, I wish it came in a huge container!!! I have rosacea and it helps alot!!!
I agree with the others....I love this product and use it on a regular basis, day and night. The container is WAY too small which means I have to order it almost monthly and it is way, way, way too expensive for what you're getting. Leslie, if you really care what your customers think you will bring back the larger container at a discount.
This is the best acne product I have ever used!
I have bought this a few times and I love it! I think it is the best acne product I have ever used, and I have used a lot! I use it mostly at night and when needed in the morning for a blemish that pops up unexpectedly. I would recommend it to anyone! Thanks BE!
Thank You Bare Minerals!
This product is amazing! I've been fighting my newly received "20's" acne, and seriously just wanted to throw in the towel I was so tired of losing. Then my friend recommended BareMinerals, and so I tried it out. This whole makeup line is wonderful, but I am so impressed by the Blemish Therapy! I haven't had a single breakout since I started using it! I am so thrilled and thankful to BareMinerals for giving me back my clear skin. I highly recommended this to anyone who has troublesome acne, or just the occasional breakout.
I really wanted to love this......
I am apparently in the minority, but I was very disappointed in this product. I use Proactive, but sometimes need a little help, so I thought this would be great. I've used it for about three weeks now and have noticed absolutely no difference in the spots where I used it.
I absolutely love the other Bare Minerals products I have, so this must just be the one thing that doesn't work for me. Oh well.
What's the purpose!
I purchased this when I was having a breakout. I read the instruction and applied as directed. I seen no difference in the look of my breakout. I've tried a whole lot of BE products, but this is one of the worst products I've tried. It may be more useful if it was a creamer form.
NEED BIGGER CONTAINER!!!! PLEASE!
I USE THIS EVERYDAY OF MY LIFE. I GET ALOT OF TREATMENTS DONE ON MY FACE FROM THE LASER AND IT CAN CAUSE BREAKOUTS AND OTHER ISSUES. THIS INCREASES MY USE IN THE PRODUCT. SOMETIMES I GO THROUGH IT IN ONE WEEK IF IM HAVING A BAD BREAKOUT! WE NEED THIS IN A BIGGER CONTAINER. ITS TOO EXPENSIVE FOR THE VERY SMALL AMOUNT YOUR GETTING!!! $18! WHEN THINGS ARE GOING GOOD FOR ME, I USE ONE PER MONTH! ALOT OF MONEY OVER THE YRS! BRING BACK THE BIGGER CONTAINER PLEASE! THIS IS KILLING ME! PLEASE LESLIE, LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS ABOUT THIS ONE. GREAT PRODUCT BUT WAY TOO EXPENSIVE FOR LITTLE CONTAINER!
Where has this product been all my life?
School would have been so much better had I been able to use this back in the day of breakouts on a normal basis... I am amazed... at night if i feel something popping up all I do is spot it with just a little of this.. next morning No sign of it whatsoever... and during the day it keeps zits at bay, I love this!
I use this product before I put on make up and after I wash my face at night. I LOVE this product. I have "difficult" acne and this product actually clears the acne up. It even works on the acne on my back. Can't believe I have lived without it.
It Really Works!!
I have been wanting to try this product ever since switching to Bare Minerals facial cleanser and lotion. I struggle with frequent breakouts and was able to get most of it under control with the facial products. Every once in a while however, I will find myself with a large blemish or a small area on my face that breaks out. This product is great for both of those reasons. Not only can you use it "on the spot", you can also put a thin layer over problems areas to help prevent the breakout from occurring. The second best thing about this product is that it not only heals but conceals as well. I can wear it alone and get great blemish coverage or with my foundation which makes it nearly impossible to notice any blemishes. I would highly recommend this product and I am so glad that I tried it!
Yes this product is small but it doesnt take much to cover problem spots. Ill admit the smell is a little bit funky but honestly you only smell it when you apply it and i think it smells like a type of herb i use when i make homemade pizza sause (tho i cant remember the name at the moment)
the only problem i have with it is that i have bumps beside my nose that ive had for months that wont go away. i was hoping this would help but it didnt. it did however fix my chin in about a day (which ive been trying to fix for a few weeks now)
the second i run out of this stuff i will def be buying some more
This product has no doubt helped me with my acne and I hope it will continue to help with reducing and controlling it. Though by reading some reviews, I can say, I'm here to testify that this wasn't exactly a miracle overnight product for me. Actually, I think my skin actaully got worse before it got better, but that's, odly enough, a good thing to look for in a product for your skin. As I've said, I am very happy with this buy and the redness was decreased dramatically over the first week while wearing it, and I found myself able to extract stuff from more of the bigger cysists and pimples on my chin, which released alot of pressure. Thanks for changing my life, one grain of powder at a time :)
This absolutely works!!
This product is so amazing.... I usually break out maybe a couple times a month and as soon as I feel one coming on, I dab this on the spot. If I wake up feeling that I'm getting a pimple, I put it on under my makeup and then again before bed. This usually prevents It from actually even turning into a full on pimple.
This product is especially good when used before the blemish gets too large or the skin is broken on it. Just a little dab on the inflamed area for a few days and it disappears. Love it!
I have tried everything out there to get rid of my acne. Proactiv, over the coutner and prescription products, and nothing has ever worked like this! I use it with the exfoliating treatment cleanser and pure transformation night treatment and my skin looks great! No need for moisturizer or concealer after 4 weeks. Awesome product!
great acne treatment for pregnant women
I used this product while I was pregnant with my daughter. I have oily skin and tend to break out a lot. Most acne treatments contain salicylic acid which isn't safe to use during pregnancy. Sulfur acne treatments are considered safe so I was happy to find a product I could use for my acne during my pregnancy. Works great, can be worn easily under makeup. What a life saver!
Very pleased with this product!
I really love this product. I'm somewhat new to Bare Escentuals and so pleased with this product. I can apply it to a blemish and it'll be gone the next day! Only gave 4 stars because the size of the container is very small. Granted, it's just one blemish at a time, but I think a little more would be better. Just my 2 cents! I have gotten 2 people to purchase and they're also very pleased from what I'm told.
The best thing ever!!
I absolutely love love love!!! This product is crazy good. One day you get a blemish and the next day its gone. Can't find anything wrong with it. It's a must buy.
Great healer for blemishes
Great concealer for raised pimples
And overall great treatment
