P.S. I have combination skin, but I also have sensitive skin and it has been sheer torture since high school (in the 1980's, lol) to find a product that was effective on blackheads and breakouts without causing bad irritation to my skin. I would literally scrub my face raw sometimes and the only result was redness and sore skin in addition to acne and blackheads. Now that I'm older I have a little less oil, so I get dry under my eyes and on my cheeks, but in that case I mix this with a creamy cleanser, and I like Bare Escentuals creamy cleanser in the pump as well.
I have used the powder cleanser for 5 years and as a former BE Beauty Ambassador I can tell you that I had countless clients who saw amazing things happen to their skin with the Rare skinscare. Best of luck!
my skin took about a month to get used to it. it hasn't made my acne worse at all. it's better, i remember when i used to use a toner and then my skin would be oily right after using it. and it was a toner specifically for my skin type. i hated that. now my skin doesn't look as oily at all. sometimes i won't use an oil absorbing sheet until the afternoon (after washing my face early in the morning). right now i am not sure if using the deep foaming cleanser all the time is the best thing for me. i'm actually going to post a question about this, somehow i feel it's a little too tough on my sensitive skin. maybe i need to alternate with the purifying... which clearly states it's gentle.
I'm trying to figure out what I "should" be using at age 25 for the best skin care. I'm reading a lot that for 25-35, cleansers with salicylic acid and masks/peels with glycolic acid are still best (even though I know the word "acid" is scary to a lot of people). This product has neither, and I'm just curious ... Does anyone else subscribes to this kind of ingredient loyalty? Does it really make much difference, or are these things worth seeking out? Thanks!
BE used to have a line called MD Formulations (you can see a tab for it at the top of this page) which has some of the acid products you're talking about. (I would describe this as the more chemically skincare line, vs rare which is much more pure.) I've kind of mixed and matched some of the Rare products with MD!
Best of luck!
The other face products are nice. Love be primers, love be eye primers, love be shadows, love be glosses, love be blushes. The skin care is great for sensitive skin. Those products would work for you.
I think it mostly refers to the harsh exfliators that have crushed walnuts etc in them, OUCH!
I use all of the cleansers with the Clarisonic, and each works fine. My favorite choice is actually the Exfoliating Cleanser. Even though I have very sensitive skin, I don't have any problems. Enjoy!
