Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
I love bare minerals products but this weekend I was finally introduced to a cleanser that I actually like. I've tried many cleansers before this is the first one at bare minerals where I have felt my face is clean of all oils and makeup. Other cleanser have left my skin feeling dry or itchy, this product with bare minerals is my perfect soultion. My skin not only feels clean but soft as well, no other product has done that for me. Once I'm out of the 30 day trial I will be purchasing the larger cleanser. Thank you for such a wonderful product!
Nice product, but not effective in all cases
I truly had high hopes for this product. I have terrible, acne-prone skin and have tried most suggestions, e.g. cleansers, toners, topical gels/creams, prescriptions, etc., hoping for positive results. I have used this product consistently for almost two months, but to no avail.
I will say that I LOVE the way this product feels when I use it. However, I have just not had much success. I think if you have skin with occasional breakouts, this would probably be a good product to try. But my skin is consistently a mess (broken out), ad it didn't help very much.
Pros: feels great, VERY gentle exfoliation, leaves skin feeling soft after you wash it off, don't need to use very much at a time.
Cons: it simply did not improve the condition of my skin. This alone outweighs the pros.
The gentlest cleanser exfoliator out there!
I use this every day to wash my face and clear makeup. It really does what it says it's supposed to. My skin is smooth, clean, and doesn't feel like it was rubbed raw like some exfoliates do. Just rub it together with a few drops of warm water and massage onto your face. After you rinse you will feel the difference!
I have been using this product for a few weeks and really like it. My face feels clean and I can make a thin or thick paste. It's gentle enough for me to use everyday and I follow up with the Glow Pads.
So sorry.. But
So sorry but this cleanser has made my skin breakout in large areas. I love the makeup line but this cleanser is lacking. Plus I have oily skin and my skin never felt cleansed.
Comes out like a powder, then turns into a paste-like feel once activated with water, then dissolves into the skin once its rubbed in. Never itchy or scratching the skin! I use this to combat acne/pimples, discolorations, and blackheads. Skin is soft and oh-so clean afterwards! This also lasts me a long time!! It's worth the price!
This product is great! My skin looks better then ever! I use this with the blemish treatment and pure transformation night treatment and I have stopped needing concealor. I have never found anything that works so well to keep my skin clear, even and moisturized. I don't even need a moisturizer anymore, after only 4 weeks! Great stuff!
Great and has Multiples ways to use it
I have been using the exfoliating treatment for almost 2 years now and I can truly say that I love it. This product is gentle enough to use daily for both day and night, or it can be used once every few days as strictly an exfoliant. When i first started using the product I was fascinated with the idea of using a powder instead of a cream as a fascial cleanser. Then i realized there were so many different ways you could use this product. By adding some water to the powder you could create a nice smooth and creamy lather that is gentle yet throughly cleans your face. After my face doesn't feel dry instead it feels smooth, soft and just enough moisture. The powder can also be used as a fascial mask by adding a tiny bit of water, applying to your face and letting it sit anywhere between 5-10 minutes. I do this every few days. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. I couple this with the deep cleansing foam and have found the two to be a great combination together.
Not effective for me
I started using this in conjunction with the Deep Cleansing Foam and moisturizer and just wasn't impressed. I didn't feel like it was doing much and after a week of using this combo of products, started to have breakouts. I'm 43 and having pimples showing up daily just didn't work for me! It went back to the store, along with the full-size Deep Cleansing Foam. I've gone back to the department store brand I'd been using, added in their exfoliating scrub and am much happier with the results. I'm glad it works for some, just not for me.
I must say that I absolutely love this cleanser more than the deep foaming cleanser and the facial cleanser. (and thats saying quite a lot) My face feels so squeaky clean afterwards without feeling dry or tight or anything like that. I was very skeptical looking at the powder in the bottle and then washed my face with it and was like WHAT?!?!? This has become my favorite cleanser.
Don't Let the Powder Fool You. It Works!
I have gone through many exfoliators and have now ended my search with this one. It works great. It takes a bit of trial and error to figure out the right amount of product for you to mix. My face feels clean and smooth after I use it. I haven't noticed a change in my pores yet. I've been using it for 2 months.
Cant go wrong with this
This product is so great!!!! I use it as a mask and also I use it twice a week to exfoliate my pores and what a difference it makes!!!! I've tried every product but bare essentials is the best
I wasn't really sure that this would work because it's a powder but it is AMAZING. Instead of using water I would recommend using the BareMinerals Foaming cleanser to activate it so you get like.... a foaming exfoliater with little beads and your skin feels super nice and clean!!! It is so gentle but you really see and feel it working. When I use it with water I feel like I have to use a lot of the powder but if you use it with the foam it works a lot better! LOVE IT!!!
most delicate exfoliator
I was mostly curious about this award winning exfoliator. It was a bit tricky to use, but with the advice from the Q&A section I finally nailed it! Just incase someone is reading this and wondering how to really use this product. Dampen your face (not dripping with water) and leave your hands a bit damp as well. Shake product into the palm of your hand, up to 6 shakes (it looked like approximately a teaspoon to me). With your other hand just sprinkle a few drops (about 4) into the powder and gently rub, if it's pasty and stiff add 2 more drops. You'll see it loosen up. After that, massage into your face and rinse. You're good to go. I definitely feel my skin smoother after I use this. Actually in the process of figuring out this product, i applied it to my face in more a paste form, tried to rub it on my face and soon my fingertips felt a bit sore...so incase you were doubting the exfoliating power of this don't! And please don't use it how i just described lol. It's really a good exfoliator and it is far more gentle than any other i have used!
So far so good
I have been searching for a product to help not only with adult acne but also to reduce the appearance of LARGE PORES. I have tried all the main stream products (proactive, murad, etc) that claimed to give you better skin but to no avail. My skin was equivalent to an orange peel with foundation on it. I was hesitant to try another product but it sure couldn't hurt. My results from using this product were amazing and fast. I noticed and so did many others that my pores appeared much smaller. My face feels so soft:-). I was a bit taken a back by the powder consistency but once you get the hang of it, you can dispense just the right amount. I tried using it as a masque as one of the other reviewers suggested and its like magic in a bottle. I almost forgot to mention something about the acne; I don't have that anymore. I am such a happy camper!!!!
I love how it leaves my face soooo clear and soft. I love the exfoliating treatment cleanser (:
Very Skeptical, but Great Product
I am a skincare junkie and I try products and can tell you straight what is garbage and what isn't. When shown this cleanser, I was not expecting anything other than a makeup remover. My skin is very sensitive, so I have had to pick and choose with exceptional care. This Product is Magic, it will clean your face and remove makeup, but it does it gently and without all the junk, plus it can be personalized to your needs by how thick or thin you want it. And your skin feels soft and smooth. My skin can become inflamed with some cleansers, where it's warm after washing, this product doesn't do that. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND this Product. Also, YOUR Moisturizer will actually work better after using this product. Buy it.
Better than I Expected
I just got this product and I gotta say WOW! It is betterthan I expected it to be after only ONE use. I could feel the difference right away. It is gentle and effective. I have sensitive and dry skin. Other products irritated my skin but not this one. My face felt the difference. I was skeptical at first since it is a powder! But now I would recommend this to family and friends.
Never thought this would work but I was wrong
I was skeptical about this product when I first saw it. I've never seen a powder form of exfoliating treatment cleanser. I've always seen a liquid type. I dared myself to try it and so far so good. No complaints here. My face doesn't have red spots when I'm done and my skin seems to enjoy it a lot. This is a A+ product. Best of all it's dry powder no need to worry about putting it in a plastic bag when traveling. I'm impressed so far with BE's skin care line.
I have combo skin that sometimes needs HELP!
I have to really watch and work at my skin to keep it looking pretty and clear. This cleanser is my FAVORITE! It polishes my skin, exfoliates and deep cleans my pores. It brightens and removes any dull residue from my skin. I use the Purifying Cleanser to remove my eye makeup and any other "stay put" type of make up but then I always use the Exfoliating cleansing directly after. The Purifying cleanser works well to take off my make up or if my skin is drier than normal. Because I have problem skin I mostly use this cleanser with fantastic results, then combine when need with the Purifying cleanser. It is fantastic that you can customize the skin care to your needs! My skin looks like a porcelain doll! I use the light lotion combo moisture, night treatment, eye treatment and the neck cream (LOVE) and VERY RARELY EVER get a blemish! I LOVE that there is NO perfume to burn and irritate my breathing and cause my eyes to water. I love the wrinkle serum and the powder spf 30. B.E. Powder cleanser is the BEST I have ever used! The line gives me a lovely complexion, is VERY affordable, you can customize it for your own skin needs, absorbs into and hydrates the skin. Thank you Leslie for a skin care line that works, feels fab on and is affordable ! I love that it hydrates and moisturizes with being thick, heavy or greasy! T From the exfoliating polish to the skin protection, the line is absolutely PERFECTION!
smaller pores and clearer skin
I have been using this product for about a month now, So far I have noticed that my skin is smoother, smaller pores and my skin looks glowing. This is truly a good product. Good job BE!
Wonderful Face Wash
This face wash is an amazing product!!! It is so gentle and effective that it has rapidly made my skin clear up and does not over dry or irritate it. Would recommend this to anyone who has acne prone skin.
Bare Minerals Exfoliating Cleanser
Love this cleanser. You can actually make it more or less exfoliating by varying the amount of warm water you add to the powder. I can only remember a powder cleanser similar to this from another beauty line, who discontinued it years ago. Have been searching for this ever since. Thanks, Bare Minerals.
I used this product for about two years but didn't notice smaller pores. I felt like my pores were clogged more often, having to use those nose strips once a week. I've heard great things about it but it didn't work out too well for my skin.
I was surprised how quickly I saw results. After using only two times, my skin was softer and smoother. I've been using BE makeup for 6 years or more, and would not use anything else. This cleanser is fantastic - and travels well also. No liquid to worry about.
Wow it Really works!!
In June I had an extensive cervical spine surgery and was in a hard neck brace for 3 months, 24hrs., 7 days a week. It was difficult to cleanse my face properly and no cleansing my neck. Well....when I got to take it off for periods of time my skin was so rough, the texture was just horrible my pores were large and my neck..well no words can describe how horrible, wrinkled and "old" my throat looked. I then remembered I had this cleanser that I had used a short time and never really gave it a chance. Well let me tell you I had missed out on great skin long before my surgery! I started using this daily and using it as a masque bi-weekly. I use this all the way down my throat. In 1 month my texture has improved, pores are appearing smaller. Even my throat looks so much better. This morning my husband said "Honey I've been meaning to tell you have been looking so pretty lately. Your skin looks so good". I've already ordered some more cleanser so I won't run out! BTW I have finally got it down on how to use the powder without having it fly all over. I wet my hands and face sprinkle some in a small line from the base of my palm up to almost my finger tips then with the other wet hand I gently start rubbing them together. Please do not ever discontinue this product. Thanks Leslie for helping my holistic recoup after my surgery. I can't say enough good about this product!!!
I love this product! Its different from anything that I've ever used before. It makes my skin so soft. I think its a must have!
Totally in love with this product!
I’ve been using Bare Minerals for about 10 years (ever since I first started wearing makeup) and I absolutely love it! I own almost every product they carry. I’ve struggled with acne for years and I love the fact that I can sleep in the foundation and my skin won’t become irritated or broken out. I was hesitant to buy this product since it was a little expensive compared to other cleansers I have purchased, but it was worth every penny! I’m willing to pay anything for clearer skin. I bought this cleanser last Thursday and my skin was broken out, it’s only Monday and my skin is already clearing up… fast! I’ve noticed a HUGE difference and I am already in love with this product! My skin is glowing and has never looked so radiant in my entire life, making me feel more confident than ever. I know this product does not treat acne but it definitely cleans out my pores and gives it that squeaky clean feeling without the harsh grit of drug store exfoliators. I have VERY sensitive, combination skin but more towards the drier side and I haven’t noticed it drying me out as others have stated, but like I said before, I’ve only been using this product for a few days so I hope it continues to keep my skin flawless like it is now! If it starts to dry me out ill just switch to using it once a day or every other day. I also bought this product for my mom, so I’m hoping she has the same results as me!
The exfoliating cleanser is wonderful.............
I've been using this product since it came out in the Rare Minerals line and Iove it. It's gentle enough to use every day and it makes your skin feel fresh and clean. I started using Bare Mineral's make-up over 10 years ago and the skincare line when it came out and I wouldn't use anything else. I'm 53 yrs old and people think I'm only in my mid-40's or younger.
I love this product. I have had VERY few breakouts since I started using it. I highly recommend it!!
