I love bare minerals products but this one is a bust. I didn't notice any improvement in my skin and I was shocked to see how this product is packaged. It comes in a bottle that is much bigger than the amount of product. I will be using either another product from now on or I will use my night serum.
It made my face very oily! :(
I started using this product some weeks ago. Shortly afterward, I started to notice my face was very oily indeed, more than usual, and needed to be dabbed every time I looked in the mirror. It took me a while to figure out what the problem could be. Last night, it occurred to me that this was the only new product I was using on my face and to skip it this morning and watch for results. My face is almost completely back to normal with regard to oiliness, in just a few hours. Sounds like I won't be finding out how fabulous it is for wrinkles after all. I hadn't noticed any difference yet in that regard.
I am only 31 and just beginning to think about age-prevention. The only "wrinkles" that really bother me are the "smile line" grooves, which are genetic. I have always had them and don't consider them to be age-related, but makeup tends to settle in the lines and it's awful. This is the first anti-wrinkle product that has not made me skin go berserk! I am breakout prone and can't deal with retinol products because the need to complement with heavy moisturizers is problematic. So this is PERFECT. IMMEDIATE results in skin texture and tone, no breakouts, love the herbal scent and the non-greasy texture. Dries quickly. Too soon to expect noticeable changes in wrinkles, but I will not miss an application of this product (morning and night). Downside- the bottle is pretty flimsy for a relatively expensive product. But if it keeps the price where it is, I can live with it.
Not for combination or oily skin!
I was excited when I saw this new product. I had gone in to buy my eye firming treatment which so far had worked on my laugh lines and other wrinkles. I almost paid $50 for this but since it turned out that the free gift with my purchase was a small container of the same, I decided to try it out first. Wise decision. I have used it for only a few weeks but I noticed that every day, my face just seeped oil. That happens when my pores are irritated or I don't moisturize well or with the right moisturizer. I did everything else the same. Then I noticed it was the same areas where I applied this product. I skipped it today and so far, no oil. It might be a great product for wrinkles but I'll never find out and would not recommend it to anyone with combination/oily skin like me, or sensitive pores. I can however say it was not comedogenic which is good, since I also battle acne.
Sadly, I must be allergic to this product because I keep breaking out every time I use it.
Other than wrinkles
I have acne scars and the wonderful women at my local store thought of me when this product came out, not for my wrinkles, but for my acne scars. They gave me a sample and asked me to try it for my scarring, I was surprised as I used the product it plumped out my scars and made my skin look very smooth. I went back in 2 weeks later and they noticed the difference. My husband noticed how smooth my face looked. I also noticed the fine lines I have have filled in too. I will keep using this product. Thanks
Works Like a Charm
I took my husband to the doctor and the doctor asked how old he was, and how many kids we had... of course, then he said to me, " but you are still young. What are you, like 28?" I'm 35. I couldn't believe it.
Miracle in a BOTTLE!
Cant begin to say how much I love the newest line of anti-aging from BE. After just two days of using, seen a dramatic change in my forehead creases and crows feet/laugh lines. The only negative I have is that I didnt buy another bottle before I ran out! lol. I do wonder how the serum stands up in comparison to this product. But until I get a free sample of the serum, I will continue using this. Love it!
Hasn't lived up to its promises.
I so wanted to write a different review on this product because I love BE products. However, I've found no improvement in lines and wrinkles on my forehead or around my eyes whatsoever. Is it repairing my skin? Well, I don't know but I'm not seeing any proof of it. Funny....I decided to go back to using the night serum and immediately saw improvement in lines and wrinkles! I would definitely advise purchasing it over this product if decrease in the appearance of wrinkles is the result desired.
lines above upper lip disappearing
I take excellent care of my skin but I smoked for 47 years and the lines above my upper lip just wouldn't diminish until I got a sample of this.Within 3 days, I saw improvement and within a week, a huge improvement. I just ordered a full sized bottle.
