Skin Rev-er Upper
Why I love Bare/Rare Minerals
I started using Bare Minerals the 1st time I saw the infommercial way back when. I look younger every year. I'm about to turn 50 next June and I get carded more now because no one believes I'm not in my 20's or at LEAST 30's! I love it! To say the least. I never used a foundation before I found Bare Minerals, and the key to successfully using the product is the tools. To me this is one of them. When they re-formulated the Rare Minerals skin care, I thought I had lost my Skin Rever-upper...but I just signed on and saw it here and I'm over joyed!!! As soon as I use what I tried to replace it with (a good product but not BE!) I'll be buying it again! I thank God for every product Leslie has created, and I love my skin. I love the fact that I look soooo young, especially since I died for 20 days in April/May of 2010. I still haven't been able to reconcile that, I don't know what it will take to do it. I suffered Total Major Organ Failure. But I know I can look in the mirror and be happy with what I see there everyday and it helps. I had big red scars on my face from the tubes I had to live from for so many days. But with Bare Minerals and BE there's not a trace of any of them and they went away fast. I think that helps more than anything so far. Thank you Leslie, for helping me deal with my death and subsequent life thereafter. I think I'd be in a much worse place without you. I'm known as "The miracle girl" at my hospital, but Bare Minerals & BE are a big part of that miracle girl...a huge part. Thank you all. I'll NEVER USE ANOTHER PRODUCT, EVER. As long as I do live.
Stick with it
I have come to love this product more and more over time. I don't think I liked it much the first time I tried it. I used BE products for a few months about 2 years ago, and then for financial reasons, went back to using less expensive products. However, nothing I have used has come close to BE for quality and compatibility with my skin, so I am back on the bandwagon and here to stay! Now that I have been using Skin Rever-Upper for about 3 months straight, 1-2 times per day I can really see the difference in my skin. For best use, apply 1-2 pumps after cleansing/before moisturizing. If you notice peeling with this product, just stick it out. The peeling will stop after a month or so (maybe more, maybe less.) You may still have a "peel day" every now and again - but it's just your skin being renewed. If you still hate it after 2 months of regular use then maybe this product isn't for you, but it has been my experience that takes time for your skin to get used to it, but it really worth hanging in there for the long term results.
Disappointed by unnatural ingredients
Bare Escentuals is a name I felt I could trust to use natural ingredients in their products. Very disappointed to read that there are parabens in this, as well as panthenol (while it is natural, is often causes breakouts).
I love this product. It is making my face feel smoother and it's helping my complexion. It doesn't make your face feel sticky or oily. It's a must have!!
BEWARE if you have sensitive skin!!!
I have very sensitive skin and the acid ingredients in this meant to "smooth" the facial skin made my skin become burning, red, and severely dry.
I adore BE because they are the only makeup brand my skin can tolerate, but because of the price on this I wouldn't recommend that anyone with sensitive skin try this, unless you don't mind throwing the money away.
Great treatment. But something to keep in mind...
Love it! But not to be used with some moisturizers.
I received this product prior to switching to BE cleansers and moisturizers. I found that when I applied this over my moisturizer I got these little white ‘balled up’ looking chunks of product. If anyone has every pet a dirty and dusty dog or horse… then rubbed their hands together and you get those little balls of dirt and oil, then you’ll know what I’m talking about. But this was happening with my moisturizer.
I was using Clean and Clear and Clinique at the time. This didn’t happen with Clinique, but did with clean and clear (and my friend had it happen with Neutrogena products). We both have switched to BE facial care since with no problems… not to mention both of us have better looking skin!
This stuff is great! However… just keep in mind it may not work as well with some products
Vitamins For Your Skin! Improves Texture, Softens
I love this! Vitamins for your skin. This smooths my skin, gives it an even color, and improves the texture of my skin. This, combined with the Pure Transformation Night Treatment has completely changed my skin for the better. My acne scars have faded, the little bumps I have on my face are smoothed over, and the color of my skin is more even. When I don't use this, my skin starts to look "bad" again, so this really works. I cannot be without!
Glycol and Salicylic Acid
Where have I been? This stuff is great for acne prone skin because of the salicylic acid and glycol. Along with the blemish treatment, you've got some really good healthy stuff that won't irritate your skin. What's great is that it's not heavy and greasy. It goes on skin so smooth and absorbs into the skin within seconds. I'm so glad that I bought this product. It will be part of my everyday regimen.
I LOVE this product!
My mother gave me this product as a gift and I really just assumed it would be another moisturizer. I never use moisturizer on my face because it is so oily and it would just make my skin worse. I started using it anyway thinking that if it made me break out I would just throw it away. I was COMPLETELY wrong about it! It actually has made my skin LESS oily and has made it much smoother. I have stopped using make-up on my face most days because my skin just looks so amazing. I don't feel like I have to hide my face anymore. I have very ivory skin and this just makes my skin look radiant. (Don't tell my mother that she was right about this product!)
I never knew...
After using this product for a brief time I began to notice a huge difference in my skin. It was softer, smoother, & dare I say...silky even. My skin tone appears more even, & my pores are less noticable. Even my husband is seeing the difference! I never knew joy culd be found in a small bottle!
