Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin
good for normal skin
If you have acne prone skin or tend to be on the oilier side of combination skin introduce this slowly. It made me break out and I was very oily by lunch time. I would say if you have normal skin, try this. If you are on the drier side of combination, try it. If you break out easily, be careful with it.
Had a sample sent in my last order of this product and am hooked. It is the perfect moisturizer. After I applied make up in the past an hour after it settled I would have oil and have to use powder to touch up. After using this product, no more of that, its the perfect balance. I love it! an no more touch up!
I love all BE makeup from their foundation to eyeshadows. So was really excited to try this out. But my face got so oily and I had a huge breakout of acne all over my cheeks. So unfortunately this did not work for me.
My searching is over!
Living in a dry climate, it's hard finding the "perfect" moisturizer. I am one of those women who has spent an obscene amount of time and money trying to find a lotion that I could even give 4 hearts. I've been using this for a week now, and have already thrown away the very pricey moisturizer that I had settled with the last year. In a week my skin feels softer, more hydrated and healthier. Because this is non-greasy and light, my BE makeup goes on so much smoother and doesn't looked "caked on" like it did with other moisturizers I tried. They definitely hit the jackpot with this!!!
LOVE this product!
The whole reason I started with BE was because my skin has been rebelling against me for several months (due to an allergic reaction on one side of my face) and my friend who is an aesthetician recommended this brand to me. For years I have supplemented my income as needed as a free lance makeup artist (everything from theatre to bridal) so having my skin go crazy for so long has kind of sucked. It's hard to market yourself as a makeup artist when your skin looks terrible!
Anyway, the cosmetics were GREAT, except the area of my skin that had the previous reaction is now too sensitive for the Original Foundation. (The Bismuth Oxychloride set my skin off, but only in that one area.) I started using the skin care samples with the Blemish Therapy and my skin looked 80% better in just three days, so I bought the whole line!
What I LOVE about this moisturizer is that it is light enough to use TWICE a day, EVERY day without causing a breakout, yet it FULLY moisturizes my dry spots. On the RARE occasion that I get a REALLY bad dry patch, I use the Dry Skin formula as a spot treatment.
The ONLY thing I could so without is the smell. It smells kind of earthy, but what can you expect from a product that is ALL natural and has SOIL in it LOL! But as soon as it soaks into your skin the smell goes away, so it's a MINOR annoyance that lasts all of 15 seconds to put up with for smoother, more radiant skin. It's a trade off I can live with!
After years of searching for a moisturizer that didn't make my face break out, I was so happy to find the old version of this product. Now that it has been "improved", it smells like men's shaving cream and makes my face break out. If only BE had followed the old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
I Was Surprised
I received a deluxe sized sample of the moisturizer in a recent purchase. I was pleasantly surpised that it was light on my skin. It wasn't greasy, heavy, oily or sticky. It absorbedc quickly and my skin was left soft and balanced. I usually have to worry about my skin feeling sticky and yucky after moisturizing and then having pimples and zits because it clogs my pores. I got no pimples or zits just soft moisturized skin.
i feel like this is useful for all skin types, i have dry skin my mother has oily and i feel like its been working best for both of us which is nice cause we can share =] but i've been feeling my skin get softer and diminishing the look of premature aging, which being only 20 to have that alone is annouying but then trying to find out how to stop and reverse it, and my mother is not having so much problems with acne, its universal!
Finally, a moisturizer for me!
I got the free sample of this a few weeks ago, and immediately noticed a difference in my skin. I have oily/combination skin, and this helped prevent that mid-day shine, especially in the T-zone. I squeezed that little tube until it gave me every single drop! Then I went and bought the full-size. I love that it's light, refreshing, and provides the perfect amount of hydration without being heavy or greasy. I just wish the full-size bottle was bigger!
I loved it so much that I ordered the trio set on QVC and the triple eye cream as well!!
I love the moisturizer for combination skin. It keeps my skin soft and hydrated.
After years of searching for a moisturizer for my 18 year old daughter we found the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer at a well know beauty store where the consultant took the time to listen and care about my daughters everyday struggle with dry, flakey and acne prone skin. She suggested this product as well as the blemish treatment and after 2 weeks my daughters acne was gone and no more dry flakes, what a transformation. Just so you know in February 2011 my daughter ran out of the moisturizer and the store informed us they were out but the product would be re-released in March 2011, she went for 3 weeks without it, used another product and her skin started breaking out and the dryness returned almost imediately. We were at the store March 3 to pick up the newly packed products and its as wonderful as ever, we have even added the cleansing line to her routine. Bare MInerals has changed my daughters life and has accomplished what no other product or dematologist could. Forever thankful in Alabama.
I am in love with this product!!
I have been using this for about a week, and I am already hooked! Not only does it work like it says and feels wonderful on my skin, it smells amazing! I have tried so many skincare products, and this one wins! I was so excited to hear about Bare Minerals new skincare products and it did not let me down! I bought more than just this in the new skincare and there just as great!
I wish it had sunscreen in it!
I was so excited to try this moisturizer! I had it in my basket and was going to purchase it, when I discovered that it didn't have sunscreen. I was so disappointed. I had to go to another brand of moisturizer because sunscreen is a must have for us red-heads. I hope that you will consider adding that in at some point.
I've been using this product for alittle while now. I like the way it makes my skin look & feel.
It is very hydrating without being greasy.
Good, but not amazoing
I bought this moisturizer with high hopes, but was disappointed. It doesn't nourish my skin exactly as I would like it to. After a few weeks of use, using it morning and night, my skin has a perpetual slight dry feeling to it. Not flakey, but a general roughness to my skin. It is very light, which is good because it never makes me greasy, but my skin needs more. I'm going to try using the moisturizing cream for dry skin at night and this for the day, because I think, for my skin, that will be a better balance.
This is the bet moisturizer that I have ever used...and I have used a lot, cheap and expensive! I love how smooth is goes on, it is absorbed quickly and my skin feels hydrated all day! Still no breakouts!!! i love this. I definitely recommend this product for sensitivee skin
i have used my sample for a week, and I will be ordering!!
light and effective
Love this moisturizer! Goes on smooth and smells good too. Very light and not greasy at all. Can't say that I noticed any decrease in fine lines. I imagine that may happen with continued use.
nourishing not greasy
Purely Nourishing Moisturizer for combination skin is the end of the mid-day oil slick! Feels nourishing, but never turns greasy, even overnight. I love the smooth, shine-free apprearance and healthy, revived feeling my skin gets the moment I apply it and it lasts all day.
Really great for everyday use!
I am not one to take time to post on products...but I have been using the skincare including this product for two months now and wish I would have known to sooner...it has done amazing things for my pores, skin texture, and most of all acne, acne scarring, and redness I was getting from harsh dermatology prescribed products! P.s. It's just as great as the original stuff with pretty new packaging!
I just found my bottle of magic-
My sample of purely nourishing moisturizer came in about a week ago, I have used it everyday since. I am so hooked! It goes on so smooth and lasts ALL day! It smells so nice. I have sensitive skin and am very dry above my brows and very oily near my chin and nose. This moisturizer does not dry my face out and also does not make my problem areas (nose and chin) worse. Honestly, since my use, the oil and dryness above my brows has reduced. I have thrown out all the other moisturizers I was using (day and night) and will rely on this bottle of magic!
Great product! I've been searching for a good transition moisturizer for awhile, and this is it! I used to use the i.d. vitamins moisturizer before that was discontinued, and this is even better! For the first time in months, I haven't had to reapply during my lunch!!
I found the perfect moisturizer
I had been looking for the perfect moisturizer for me forever that was not too heavy underneath makeup and was not too light that it was leaving my skin parched. This is a great formula and makes my skin feel soft and looked more luminous.
