Skin Rev-er Upper
This is my favorite product. It has evened out my skin tone, smoothed and softened me face too! This is a must have!
My skin loves this stuff...
It does take time for this stuff to really work it magic, and when it does, you will never go back!
First off, it goes under the moisturizer! When you apply it, make sure your face is lightly damp. I usually wet my hand after I've washed my face and flick the water on my face. Next, squirt 1 pump in your hand and dab your finger in it and dab your cheeks, chin, nose and get a good amount on the forehead. A half squirt may be needed for the forehead. Then just rub it on the face. Let it dry partly then add moisturizer!
Once your skin absorbs everything, add primer and have fun!
This took me a few months to get the combo right for me, so just test what works for you. I did break out when I first used this stuff and I realized now that my pores were purging slot of junk out, thanks to this stuff and now I almost never break out!
Fast and Effective
I first got the Skin Rev-er Upper in the Get Started Kit. I wasn't sure how to use it so I let it sit idly by for a few weeks. But I decided that I didn't want to waste it and there was no going back once I tried it.
I have oily and sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts. I noticed a very huge difference almost immediately after I put this on my face. My skin was so much smoother and I had fewer and milder breakouts. The smell doesn't bother me, I usually don't notice it and it's so light and not greasy at all. I've had my bottle for a while so it's really worth the investment. I only use one pump for my entire face right before I put on moisturizer. It makes a world of difference in my skincare routine.
I received this product in a set with another product and really didn't like it. I could figure out when you were supposed to use it. I use the BE moisturizer already, so I didn't want to use it as a moisturizer. And after I'd put my moisturizer on, it didn't feel good over it. I didn't want to put it on over my makeup, because then it messed it up. Also, it had an odd kind of chemical smell to it. I gave this away asap.
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!
