LOVE This Product
I have had acne since my early teens and have used almost every product out there to treat it including Neutrogena, Clinique, Biore and even ProActive. Nothing helped and usually made my acne worse. This is the first product to genuinely work for me. I have sensitive skin that is oily but drys out easily especially while using other products. I use this both morning and night and not only does it control my acne but it clears it up and improves my skin. My skin has honestly never looked better! I highly recommend this product as a little goes a very long way. I use this along with the deep cleansing wash and I'm so happy with the results.
Sort of works
I bought this product wanting something new to try on my acne. It does dry out the area but be careful with how much you put on. I put some on my chest and it started to burn and itch like crazy. I have seen some improvement but not much. I don't think that I will buy this again but use up what I have.
I received this product in a trial size, I was skeptical at first as to how it was going to work, but I started using it and I can't complain. I don't always get blemishes, but when I do this is the first thing I grab. It works well and I notice within a couple of days the blemish(es) start to disappear.
So far... AWESOME
I purchased blemish therapy 6 hours ago- I made the mistake of purchasing cheap make up as a quick fix one day, and it caused break outs all over my face and neck. I purchased this, really on a whim, as nothing ever works for me, but I'm always open to trying new things to see if they happen to be "the one". And this is "the one", I think! All of my break-outs are MUCH smaller and are hardly able to be seen now! I'm shocked! I've had acne since I was a teenager, and it got better in the last couple of years, but when I do something stupid, I pay for it. And prescriptions, clinique, proactive, neutrogena, etc don't work for me... And my face is pretty sensitive to potentially harsh washes and treatments.
The one thing about it, though, is there is a pretty distinct tea tree oil scent, so if you're not used to that, it might irritate you a bit.
I noticed others have commented that the coverage isn't that great- I was actually quite pleased with the concealment of this product, but still used the BM concealer under my BM foundation just as an added coverage.
The only reason I gave 4 stars, is because this is only the first day I've used it- but loved it so much, I had to at least give a review, in case others were debating on purchasing :)
Very happy with this product, I've been using it for about 2 weeks and overall I think it's worked better than most other treatments I've tried for moderate acne.
I used to have acne back when I was younger, and I'm 26 now and get maybe one or two pimples every now and then. I've tried so many spot treatments, over the counter and prescribed stuff. I walked into the Bare Minerals store and saw this product, I actually had a wedding to go to the next day and had a nice size pimple on my chin, so I purchased this and decided to give it a try. I must say this stuff is amazing!!!! Completely made it shrink in a day and by the second day it was completely gone, without me having to pop it. Even if I feel it coming on I put it on and it's gone! I've told all my friends and family and swear by this stuff. I no longer use Benzol or Acid products on my face. I even put it on my cheeks and it's drastically reduced my pore size within about two weeks. Seriously worth $18 bucks!!! This stuff is amazing and I take it with me everywhere, especially when I travel and get to a new locations, sometimes the water to wash your face, or even the travel can stress you out and cause a pimple or two, we'll this stuff allows me to stay completely clear!!!!
My new must have!!
I love this item!! I had heard about Bare Minerals products before but have only recently started using them. While in the boutique, the representative told me about this product. She said that her supervisor had applied it at the beginning of her work shift and by the end it had improved.
So I decided to try it as I had some sort breakout on my eyelid which had been stubborn for a week without improvement and was irritating. I couldn't conceal it very well and I had a wedding the next day. I applied it that evening and before bedtime. By the next morning, it had improved dramatically and was barely noticeable. I went to the wedding a happy girl. It has worked multiple times for other "Mount Vesuvius-es" that have erupted on my face in like 1-2 days.
I was told to wear this over my foundation but it noticeable and does not conceal. So I might wear it under foundation or rub it in.
I carry it my purse to zap breakouts as they come. I love it and will never be without it! :)
I don't usually break out too often, mainly during that "favorite" time of month, but when I do there will be multiple ones, especially on my chin. I bought this so that it would help clear up my skin when I did break out.
The product has helped clear my face up more quickly than before I started using it. Some of my smaller blemishes disappeared almost overnight! I am not sure how well it is preventing blemishes, though.
The smell is strong, especially if you have blemishes around your nose, but it is due to the "natural sulfur" present (that helps to dry out the blemishes). However, it is not enough for me to stop using it! Also, because it is a light-colored powder, it doesn't really "conceal" (as advertised) with my medium skin tone, so I use it in conjunction with concealer. Also, the more you put on, the lighter it looks. Because of that, I usually put on a little before my concealer/foundation in the morning, and a lot more at night.
i bought this a couple weeks ago and started using it. i dont have a big acne problem but i do break out occasionally. I started using this on some of my problem areas and was completely disappointed :( it actually made me break out worse, and it was litterally over night! i love bare minerals to death and only use your make up and face wash so i was really bummed i had this bad of an experiance with this product. i understand everyones skin is different so in no way am i saying its a horrible product, its just horrible for my skin. :(
Use it every night
I use this as a preventative product in the areas I'm prone to break outs. I also use it when I have a pimple and it gets rid of it fast. My only issue is with the smell, it's kind of like menthol, but if it helps it work then that's fine.
