Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
Another rave review
This cleanser deserves 10 stars. I have sensitive skin and can't use exfoliants. Apricot scrubs and that sort break me out terribly. I use and love Purifying Cleanser, and after reviews and a comment from an Ulta rep, I bought this. Can't say enough about how extra healthy my skin feels or how much softer and younger. There is NO gritty feeling, and once you start washing, it actually gets creamier as you go. I use this in the morning and Purifying followed by this at night. I wear mascara and shadow so I feel it best to first use Purifying to get that stuff off, then the exfoliant. If you ever (and I do in winter especially) have dry flakes, this is the cleanser solution. Anything else I ever used to "de-flake" caused instant breakout and rash. Love, love, love this!!!!
I had been using an other skin care line and decided that it was getting to expensive to buy. I wanted something natural but was afraid to switch so I went to the store to get a test drive of the product before I bought it. I did the purifying cleanser on the left hand and the exfoliating cleanser on the right hand.....WOW! Night and day. My right hand looked years younger immediately and the left hand even with the moisterizer looked wrinkled. Even 2 days later the right hand still looks better. So natually I bought the exfoliating cleanser and my daughter who is 24 (and I am 51) came over today and I touched her skin and I touched mine and they felt the same. Moist and dewey. My skin feels and looks incredible in just 2 days. I didn't think it could look any better (because I don't look my age) but it does and I haven't even used it as a mask yet ,maybe tomorrow. I highly recommend this product. I sprinkle a little bit on my hands and then I apply to a wet face. I get a quick exfoliating treatment before it gets creamy and hydrates my skin. I let it sit on my face as I rub it in then rinse. OMG! no dryness and it feels creamy soft. Love it, Love it, Love it !!!! I don't usually comment but this product rocks so far in my book! I also like that it works with the BM makeup. I actually think that my makeup looks better since I started using the skincare line... I use the exfoliating cleanser, the wrinkle concentrate, Normal to dry moisterizer and the transformation night treatment the older version because I got it at the outlet...Still awsome and saw immediate results. If you have normal to dry skin you will love this.
Very pleasantly surprised.
Love BE make up, but have not liked any of the skin care line so far. But this is actually a very good exfoliant. Very gentle, would be great for sensitive skin. It's interesting as a powder to paste...I recommend to at least give it a try. Big downfall is the smell, like the rest of the skin care line it stinks, literally smells like dirt.
I'll be going back to my Aveeno
I wasn't impressed by this product. It's OK, but I don't feel like it really exfoliates or cleans my skin as well as my Aveeno scrub did. I also found it hard to get the correct consistency when using this product. Either you add too much water, or not enough. I'd rather something you can just throw on your face and wash off.
I LOVE this product!!
Ok Ladies, and gentlemen (there could be a few) This cleanser is WONDERFUL!! This cleanser is good for two jobs, the first as a cleanser, the second as a mask! This Exfoliating Cleanser does not leave my face extra dry, like most cleansers and I have dry/sensative skin to begin with. I will never stop using this product, ever!!! Enjoy
I've been using this cleanser for a few months now. At first when I heard about the powdered formula, I was quite skeptical on how to use it. The bottle says to put a little water in the powder to activate it. That method did not really work for me. Since this is an exfoliating cleanser I use it three times a week at before I go to bed. I will wet my face and then put the cleanser on and then I get a nice clean scrub while removing the dead skin cells.
My face is clearer than ever before and I always get compliments of how clear my face is.
I love this cleanser
I had been using this cleanser for years until I thought it had been discontinued. I was dismayed because this was the absolute best exfoliating cleanser I had ever used. I didn't realize the skin care line had been "overhauled" and had new packaging. I am thrilled that I have found this again! I have large pores, uneven skin, combination skin, and this cleanser exfoliates gently leaving your skin feeling soft and supple. LOVE IT!
I was a bit skeptical that a powder could really exfoliate but after the first use I was hooked. I use one shake daily with my purifying cleanser to wash my face but a couple days a week I use it as a mask to just give my face that oomph that it needs. I have oily skin and my face feels like a baby's bottom now. Love this product.
Can't live without it.
I've been using the basic BE System (Powder cleanser and moisturizer) for almost 5 years! I get compliments on my skin all the time. Last week I ran out of my cleanser but decided to wait 10 days (until my FAB discount) to stock up. Within that time my skill totally regressed----breaking out on my chin and developed little bumps across my cheeks. I broke down and RAN to the store to get one bottle to hold me over. Used it one night and my skin is already restored.
Unfortunately I don't care for either of the other BE Cleansers----but I adore the entire line of products--- I now use the cleanser then the brightening pads, then the moisturizer + eye cream followed by the serum and PM Treatment! Adore it all. xoxo.
I absolutely love this face wash. I had struggled with acne for years and had even tried proactive. This didn’t work and after loving Bare Mineral foundation I decided to try their face wash. I love it!! It keeps my face clean, acne free, and has also helped to control my oily skin.
This is the only product I need.I love you Leslie!
In just one day, for the first time, after applying this onto my face then rinsing it off afterwards, I felt wide awake and healthy, noticing the radiating change in an instant. In 4 minutes, I was being all crazed about the possibilities of not needing to apply make-up just to cover up my skin tone, reddish, hideous looking spot ever again! Especially, since my skin tone went from an "Oh my god..." daily expression (with the staring at the bathroom mirror habit) to an, "Oh my gawd!!!!..." use of expression, from that day on until now.
Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
This exfoliating cleanser is pretty good. I usually use it 2-3 times per week. The only problem I have is that it only seems to exfoliate for about 30 seconds and then it feels like a regular cleanser. I will continue using the product because it's the only one offered by BE. I've become a loyal fan and can't see me using another brand.
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.
