Pure Transformation Night Treatment - null
Wouldn't recommend this one...
I bought this because I read the reviews and thought it sounded amazing. But in reality, it is too expensive for what it does. The benefits do not outweigh the dent in my wallet.
It's very easy to cake this stuff on. I got the clear one - I wear fairly light foundation in the winter and medium beige in the summer. I put this on too heavily and I looked almost orange, I was expecting a more mineral veil type color to this but it is definitely tinted.
Like other users, I enjoy the idea of going to bed with a glow, and because I paid so much I will continue to use it, but honestly it doesn't make my skin feel great like the other BE products I use before bed, it feels heavy to me.
I also noticed if your moisturizer is not completely dry before you buff this stuff on your face you have a problem, so let all of your other products dry first and buff on gently. You really don't want to put on more than 3-4 applications (that is, go back and put the brush back in the treatment more than 3-4 times). Also, the picture on this website is confusing to me. In the picture it looks like the powder comes out of the brush...it does not. The top of the night treatment is the brush and you have to continually put it back on the container, tighten it, and shake it to get more on the brush.
I use a lot of BE products and love almost all of them. I was so excited for this and was really disappointed.
If you're dead set on buying it - I will say it's nice to go to bed with a glow. But it doesn't give the results I was expecting, and unless you have pretty good skin you're not going to feel luminous and gorgeous wearing this, you're going to look like you caked on some powder before bed.
Sorry, BE...maybe try different packaging, a softer brush, a shade that is ACTUALLY clear, and a more controlled container.
Packaging design flaw
I Love Love Love this product! The only reason I give it a 3 rather than a 5 is packaging. I don't see the need to purchase the brush every time. You cannot dispense the last 7-8 uses. It's next to impossible to pry open to get at the remaining product. At this price it irritates me to throw away product. Please rethink the packaging for your loyal consumers.
What a nice product!
Purchased this item while on vacation, and have been using nightly for the last 6 weeks. I have oily skin and what I have noticed is I don't wake up with my skin feeling oily. It feels smoother. I would have to say my skin feels more "balanced" since using this product than it has at any other time of my life. Will continue to use this product nightly because of the outstanding results.
totally clogged my pores
I used this for 2 solid weeks, and then I realized that the pores in my t-zone were huge blackheads. I quit it for another 2 weeks and they're back to pre-use size. Truly awful stuff. At least I bought it at the outlet so I didn't pay $60 for it.
You know how you read a zillion great reviews about something, and there's always that one person who doesn't like it? I get to be that one person.
I love BE and asked my favorite store associate what one product she would grab if her house was on fire. She didn't wait a milisecond before answering with this product. Took it home, used it religiously and...didn't see a difference. I was excited for smaller pores, but this treatment didn't do a thing to minimize them. I continue to use it every night (I *do* like the glow it gives) just because for that money, I'm going to use every speck of it. When I'm done with it, I'm moving on to something else.
I really like this....
Ok so I bought this SORT of for the claims, but also for the idea that I could wear 'makeup' to bed.... I can't help it, I'm sort of a product junkie lol
So far I really like the product. I got it in translucent as I'm very fair skinned.
I apply this as the very last step in my nightly routine after moisturizer has dried ...
It imparts a slight 'diffusing glow' similar to a very light highlighting powder, so I enjoy that it semi-diffuses my imperfections at bed time.
I do find that when I use this faithfully that my complexion DOES look better in the mornings...... but when I DON'T and I use it sporadically it doesn't make too much of a difference.
So essentially my only gripes are that I have to remember to use it all the time if I want to see a real difference (geeeez lol) and well the holes get clogged and you have to use another brush to clean them out before more product will dispense.
Also if you do use too much it CAN wear/rub off on your sheets. I find when I use apprx 3 disbursements that's not a problem, but if I try to use more than it can wind up on my pillowcases.
Over all I do like the effect that it has with regular usage and would continue to buy it.
Love, love, love this!
I first started using this at night like directed. But my skin looked so great going to bed and waking up that I decided to use it as my foundation. Best decision! It makes my skin look smooth, diminishes pore size, and gives my face a healthy glow. And it provides better coverage than any of the Bare Minerals foundations I've tried. I have sensitive, very acne-prone skin and this doesn't make me break out at all or irritate my skin in any way. I LOVE it! The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the limited color selection. I use the lightest shade, but its slightly too yellow for me. I would love a better color selection!
Pure Transformation Night Treatment
Simply unbelievable..... a MUST HAVE! Love joining my 'man' with a porcelain finish to my face. It simply makes me feel better, and at the same time, I know it is improving my skin. I have tried a LOT of other products, I find they leave my face feeling 'weighted down' or simply 'not clean and refreshed'. At one point, when they changed the packaging.... I was devastated thinking they had discontinued the product.
It feels nice
I can not speak on positive or negative changes regarding this product because I am not sure it anything happened. I've been using this product for a little over 2 weeks. I probably should have done a before picture to compare my results. I do know 1) It is great on sensitive skin because it hasn't irritated my face 2) It does leave my face feeling smooth. 3) I should have gotten "clear" because the "tan" color soils my expensive white pillow cases. Overall, I am NOT dissatisfied with this product because it didn't irritate my skin. I probably won't buy it again unless I see some definitive changes because the price it too high to experiment with products. TIP: get the clear tone if you value you linen. It should be the last thing you put on anyways so if it doesn't match your tone, it's no big deal.
Love it! Works as promised.
I should mention up front, since everyone's skin is different, that Bare Minerals products happen to work well for me.
The very first morning after trying this product, I noticed that my skin was wonderfully smooth and the [giant!] pores on my nose were smaller! It also seems to be clearing up my breakouts, which I've struggled to keep under control for years. I've only been using it for a few days, so I can't properly comment on its tone-evening ability, but I have high hopes. It's given my face this great luminous, fresh glow. It does make my skin feel a little dryer, so I've started using moisturizer as part of my nighttime routine. I'm fair-skinned, so I bought this product in "Clear" (plus, I wanted to play it safe with my pillow cases--though I haven't noticed any stains on my pillows, as promised.)
