Skin Rev-er Upper
It's definitely my fault...
Let's begin saying I started out full of good intentions for this product: apart for the smell, which took me a little bit getting used to, I was already conquered by the description. What you need to know is that I first got this product when I was a tender teenager and my skin used to behave accordingly: uber-sensitive (I am an allergic subject), but with an oily-ish T-zone... I got Skin Rev-er Upper when I bought my first Get Started kit and after just one day I noticed my skin felt super smooth. Love at first sight, you might say... Alas, no! Because after three to four days of applying this product just once a day, my skin got all bumpy, as if I had thousands of little pimples coming up... At first I put the blame on my hormones-freaked condition of teenager, so I waited three years before going back to a new bottle, full of hope... No, no change at all... Still perfect after the first day, dry, bumpy and itchy afterwards... :(
I'd recommend this product to those who have a fairly tough skin, not a sensitive one like my own... Sorry Rev-er Upper, between the two of us it was just not meant to be!!! I still give it 3 hearts because I'm partially responsible for the failure of our relationship, but I still wish there was a gentler version...
Skin Rev-er Upper--A Wonderful Product!!!!!
Skin Rev-er Upper is a great product to begin your skin regiment before applying the wonderful Bare Minerals make-up. I'm so pleased with all the products. I receive so many compliments on my make-up.
I have very dry sensitive skin so most products w/ glycolic acid or hyaluronic acid are too harsh for my skin. My mother had a bottle of the bare vitamins so I tried it. Once a day is perfect for me. GONE is the flaky skin and my complexion looks amazing even before I use foundation!
Must have with BE foundation!
This makes a huge difference on the way your skin feels after applying foundation. It keeps your skin moisturized all day and prevent any flaking if you have dry skin. My skin tends to be really dry around the nose and mouth areas, and this keeps these areas moisturized and the foundation stay smooth throughout the day.
Helps make up stay on longer
I used this product for the first time this morning and I think it does do what it says. I used exactly one squirt and applied before I used my moisturizer and primer. Today I noticed that my makeup lasted longer today and I only used mineral veil twice today. My face does seem smoother and more refined and for that I like it. I did notice however that I did have a slight peeling of the product but I am not sure if that was this one or the Prime Time Oil Control primer. (See my review for that). I think I need to play around with the amounts that I putting on. Currently one pump for each. I have extremely oily skin. Will let you all know!
Skin Rev-er Upper kick starts my make-up routine!
I love this stuff. I initially ordered the prep and prime kit which comes with a small bottle of the Rev-er Upper and I just ordered a full size to make sure I never run out before my auto-shipment comes in.
It has helped smooth out my skin, and more importantly, it helps minimize my Ginormous pores to a point where they're not very noticeable. I think the glycolic acid as well as the salicylic acid in particular are the key ingredients that are helping my pores. The botanical and vitamin ingredients are also great and I think those are the ones that leave my skin feeling plump and juicy - like a baby's! I use the Prime Time some of the time, but I ALWAYS use the Rev-er Upper, sometimes twice a day.
Definitely a product that I won't be letting run out!
I didn't see any change with this product. If anything- it irritated my skin. I was so excited to get this and the Primer, and I was very disappointed. :(
I have tried many different products. Until I tried Bare Vitamins Skin Rev-er Upper nothing worked. Then I ran out!!! I tried store bought expensive wrinkle creams and moisturizers, all of which did not work. I just waisted my money on them!!! Bare Vitamins Skin Rev-er Upper does what it says it does. It smooths out my skin, so you don't see the lines and wrinkles. I am sold, it is on my auto order from now on.
part of my am routine
I don't feel complete unless I include this as part of my am routine. I used to just moisturize prior to makeup application, but now I apply skin rev-er upper, then moisturizer, then primer. The difference is amazing! Not only has it helped my complexion, but makeup application is so much smoother. Only downside is that I think it has a slightly funny smell - similar to acne treatments which makes sense considering some of the ingredients. The smell doesn't last though. Absolutely worth it!
I feel so AWAKE!
I love this stuff. It is super light and feels amazing. It wakes my skin up every morning. And it lasts forever! Love it.
