Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin
Not The Best Product Out There
I have used many different products for my sensitive combo skin. I use BE products for my makeup so I thought I would try this moisturizer as well as some other skincare products. This moisturizer is very disappointing. I found I could not use it twice a day every day. It started to irritate my skin, making it turn red and hurt. I would have to stop using it for a few days and not use another moisturizer, or use something completely different. I love some of the other products that I use. The Cell Renwal, Moisture Defense Creme for the eyes, and the Wrinkle Corrector are fabulous products!! This one, however, I will not me using anymore.
I received a sample of this and found the product to be disappointing-- primarily because of the overwhelming smell. Yuck! The scent is strong and doesn't go away. It lingers and actually gave me a headache. Wasn't a fan of the consistency either as I found it a bit greasy and thick for something I'd want to use on my face. I've been struggling to find a lightweight facial moisturizer with natural ingredients that doesn't have a weird smell or fragrance to it. Guess my search will continue as this is one of the few BE products I can't recommend.
:( I am so horribly sad about this product. I have used BE make-up for YEARS and since I was looking for a better face wash system I thought BE products would be the best place to look. I used the cleanser, moisturizer and night serum for a full week and really loved using it! Until the sixth night I started noticing the skin around my eyes and neck felt slightly tender. I woke up the next morning the find my face covered with a red, bumpy, itchy, rash. I couldn't believe that is was my face wash and thought maybe my detergent because I had just washed me sheets, so I used the product that morning. The rash got worse! This is the only product I have used on my face and my neck, and I am noticing that the rash stopped right at the spot where I put the moisturizer. It has been a full day without use and the rash hasn't gone away and still itches. I have been taking benadryl which is helping. I wouldn't say I have extremely sensitive skin, because I have never had a product effect me this bad, but I don't have the toughest skin either. All I have to say it test the product first! It took a couple of days for me to be effected by it! I am SO thankful that I tried this our WAY before my wedding day in March I would have been a wreck if I had to walk down the aisle like this!
Combination skin moisturizer
My face is oily in a few spots, normal in others. I've had very little success with other products, often needing to use 2 products to do what Bare Escentuals has managed to accomplish in one. I highly recommend this to anyone - even if your skin is normal, oily or dry - as it works really well in all the areas of my face. No residual slickness, or greasy feeling afterwards. Just a light coating is needed. This jar lasts me many months. Well worth the money!
the only one i use
I have very oily skin with occasional break outs. I purchased this with my kit in the summer and used it only couple of times because was afraid it will make me even oilier. I always neglect to moisturize because of my oily skin, and so far could not find any products which were light enough.
Right now in cold weather with drying radiators heat at work and home this works wonderfully. I do not put it on my face at night, since I use some other skin care products at nigh, but I do use it in the morning on clean face , letting it dry and follow with oil control primer and matte formula foundation ( both from BM). it's very light and absorbs quickly. I would recommend it for some one with oily skin for sure.
So far, I love it. But I have one concern.
I got a generous sample tube of this with an order and I really like it. It is the perfect texture (not too heavy). And it's perfect under the foundation. Just be sure to wait till it has completely absorbed before applying foundation. But I'm a little hesitant to order the full size bottle as several reviewers have complained about the amount left in the bottle when the pump stops working. One said there was almost a third of the bottle that she couldn't access. If the pump can be taken off so that you can at least shake the last out of it I might consider it. I do want to say one thing about Bare Minerals customer service. OUTSTANDING!
I got this moisturizer as a sample with a BareMinerals gift set that I bought. I finally decided to try it because I always have a horrible time finding the perfect moisturizer for my combination skin! When I put this moisturizer on my face it felt amazing! Never did it feel heavy or greasy. This is the perfect light moisturizer to go under my BareMinerals primer and foundation!!
Gotta love it
Love this moisturizer! I have super sensitive skin and this is the only product I can use! It's moisturizing but, not oily, it's non irritating, and doesn't clog pores, cause acne, or redness. It softens and smoothes, my husband noticed a difference the first week, not knowing that I had changed anything and said, "wow, your skin looks amazing lately".
Best moisturizer ever used
I have used many moisturizers for my face which have all but left my face feeling oily. This product is very light weight and goes on smooth. It does not make my skin oily and keeps it moisturized all day. Love it
The best thing I've ever used on my face!
This is the lightest moisturizer I have ever used! I have the worst problem with oil on my forehead and a little problem with oily skin on my nose. My cheeks can sometime become dry and I've noticed if I don't put anything on my face my skin gets even more oily. No matter what I have tried the oil on my forehead that does not go away. This is by far the best thing I've used on my face. My forehead is still oily but I've noticed that the oil is not as bad.
