Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
I love this product. I have to say I was hesitant about getting it because of the price but I was willing to try anything. I have had abnormally dry skin the past few months and with my wedding coming up I was desprate to try anything. The girl convinced me to try this product and I am thrilled she did. Its sheer and it is light weight I do not feel like I have anything on my face and it does not or has not caused any breakouts. I am back to getting compliments on my skin and the dryness has gone away. I will never hesitate on buying this product again. It will be a constant in my Bare Escentuals conllection!
Miracle in a bottle!
I have been using this serum for over a year and am absolutely in love. I have very dry skin on the outsides of my face and have a very oily t-zone and this works so well for the huge variation in skin. My face feels like a baby's bottom the next morning and it evenly moisturizes. My T-zone calms down and my cheeks and sides of my face are much more hydrated. At first I was skeptical of using an oil but I'm so glad that I took a leap of faith. Even with my acne prone skin this has been a god-send. Worth every penny, especially because a pea size amount is all that is needed...less is more!
Dare to go bare
Been using this for about 2 weeks now and I love it! I'm a person that would never walk out of the house without makeup. Well, let me tell you what. It's possible with this stuff. Glowing healthy complexion. My face never looked so healthy. Would highly recommend. Don't worry about the price, a little goes a long way. It will easy last 2-3 months. Since using this I have been using less makeup.
Didn't know how much I loved it until I ran out of it!
I first purchased this in the 30 day kit with the cleanser & moisturizer to see if I wanted to try BE's skin line, already loved the makeup! I loved all 3 products & bought the cleanser & moisturizer as soon as I ran out. I thought for the price I would skip this item. However after about 2-3 weeks I noticed my face seemed dull & my makeup wasn't looking as great as it had been. I went back to the store & splurged on the Night Serum & haven't let myself go without it ever since! This product does wonders on brightening & moisturizing my face. It goes on smoothly & feels great! Worth purchasing!
skin breakout with sample
Glad I got to sample this. Don't have sensitive skin as a rule, but do have aging skin with fine lines. Used one night and woke up with tiny pimples on my cheekbone area and skin sensitive where applied. Guess there is something in there that doesn't agree with me. Love all the other products. Happy samples are offered with orders to see if things suit the individual before springing for a trial.
Perfect for Aging Skin
I am 48 with dehydrated skin from stress & weather and started to get fine lines and the inbetween eyebrow creases and a crease in the middle of my forehead. I have used high end very expensive products twice the price and this product keeps up with the best of them! Great results: decreased lines, creases starting to disappear, & hydrated skin. Lovely skin in the morning & throughout the day! Congrats on this one BE!
My new favorite product!
I use this serum before bed, after washing my face with the purifying cleanser. It's my nightly ritual :-) The serum is hydrating without being oily (which I love), and I feel like it gives my skin a healthy glow. My husband even noticed it last night - he actually thought I had foundation on, but I was completely bare-faced. I guess my skin is looking smoother and more balanced. I'm so loving this product!
Last December I burned the top of my hand with hot tea I had just made. Once my skin started to heal I started using this on the burned area, today the scar is hardly noticeable and it healed in good time. I used it a couple of times a day and even now I still put it on the scar at night.
Wanted to love, acne breakouts
I really wanted to like this product as it felt great applying and while on my face. but after about a week of use I started having cystic acne break outs. I love the rest of the skin care line I use from bare minerals and their make up. this just didn't work for my skin.
The new formula is clear and doesn't seem as smooth and nice as before. What happened to this product, the old formula felt silky and soft and this new product seems watered down and doesn't feel nice to the touch. Does it work as good??? Doesn't seem like it will. I am not happy with my purchase and will not be buying again in the future. Why do they have to mess with a good product when they have it, new and improved?? I think absolutely not.
Skeptic at first.
With so many products on the market from high-end ($) to drug store (<$) I have tried several. So on the recommendation by my consultant I tried it. He was so right. It make your skin feel softer and brighter almost immediately. I have been using this for 4 weeks and the difference is amazing. I wish that we would have take before and after pictures to show how well it works.
I received a sample of this with a recent order. I usually use a different product for night time but I decided to give this a try the other night. Boy do I regret it! I woke up with several new pimples and itchy flaky skin! I do not and never have had sensitive skin and I have never had a reaction from any product I have tried. So glad I got the chance to sample this before blowing $50!!
Love this product!!!
I have very dry skin, especially during the winter season. This product really made the difference in my skin. I have being use it for about 3 moths every night, I feel my skin much hydrated the next morning.
I wish my skin loved this
I have been getting a few samples here and there with my BE orders, being new to bare minerals when my face starting breaking out with cystic pimples i wasn't sure what to blame. After not using this product my skin started clearing up, i thought my skin was just getting used to the foundation, until i received my last package and another sample of the serum Now i know what did it, i have another cystic pimple forming on my chin after 2 nights of using the serum. While this makes my skin feel like velvet im glad i never purchased it like i wanted to. If your interested in this product make sure you receive a sample first!!
I barley ever write reviews on products but I felt strongly compelled to do so on this one. This serum is GREAT. I've been using it for about a month now and I see a huge difference in my skin. My little patch of acne has cleared up, my skin is hydrated & it's even helped to fade light acne scars as well as improve texture. I would highly recommend this product it really does do wonders for your skin.
I never would have thought this would work so well
I only used this because I got a sample with something else I ordered. I've been using BM for over five years now and love the makeup, cleanser and other things but wouldn't have spent $50.00 on something like this. Wow! Am I glad I got that sample. The very next morning I noticed a change in my skin. I'm 61 and lately noticed my skin was getting more dry. Part of the reason is that I have gas heat and it does dry your skin out but I also felt my skin was changing from always being oily to being dry and almost flaky:( I followed the directions for the Night Serum and was truly amazed at how my face felt the next morning. Don't hesitate to try it because it really does make a BIG difference!
I have been using this product regularly with great results. I recently got a tattoo on my wrist and thought this product would soothe that sensitive skin. Not only did it eliminate the irritation of the skin, but it healed the tattoo site in less than a week with absolutely no flaking, drying or itching. I will never be without this serum!!
I've actually had this product for awhile, but for some reason I'm not good about trying skin care products as much as make up. So finally after months of having this I decided to try it one night before I went to bed. My skin gets flakey and dry at times, especially during the dry, winter, cold season. I use about a dime size for my whole face, and it's like a serum but a bit thinner in film. I have a little redness on my cheeks and in the morning the redness was gone, and it absolutely helped my dry, crackling skin get back to normal. I was really surprised after one use that my skin was looking this way. So now I use it as my nightly ritual...I love it!
I've used this product ever since it came out! I recently ordered it again because I ran out... I have to say I'm very disappointed with my order!!! It seems as if they reformulated the product, it seem like its been watered down and doesn't moisturize like it use to... It even made me break out.. This stuff use to be amazing... Please Bare Escentuals make this stuff like you use to, don't cheap out!!
Will only enhance your skin care regimen
I originally thought I didn't need this product because of my age but once I tried it I was hooked. This restored balance and harmony to my skin and eliminated 75% of breakouts for me. The others intake care of with the powder treatment. I used to use a quarter sized dollop which was more than recommended but after a couple months I only needed a dime size amount. Your skin will let you know how much it needs. Worth it for what the product does. This and the night treatment are my splurge beauty items.
The first time i used this product I wasn't sure if it was all a con, I've seen these things before and never believed it would do much good. HOW MUCH MORE WRONG COULD I HAVE BEEN!! I mean, I have bad acne and my skin was so fresh after just one use!
i was talked into buying this wonder treatment by a sales gal at one of the stores and i'm so glad i got it. i have oily skin on top of my nose/forehead and super dry skin on my cheeks, outer nose area and in between my eyebrows. yes i have crazy combo skin nightmares. this serum evened out the combo dry/oily skin and hydrated it in one use. i cleansed my skin, used the serum, put on the combo moisturizer and next morning i woke up to a total difference in my skin. was a little apprehensive about buying a little bottle for $50 but a little certainly goes a long way. super happy i got this stuff, you will see a difference in just one night!
Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
I was excited to use this product because of all the great reviews I read, and I was not disappointed! The first time I put it on (before I even went to bed!) my face was softer, looked brighter and more luminous, and I felt like I could walk out of the house without makeup! (which is not something I ever do!) It always makes my face look bright, clear and luminous the next morning; I wouldn't go a night without it! A lot of people are concerned about the price for the amount, but it really does last a long time! When I first started using it I used more than a "pearl-sized amount," but after a few days I needed to use less and less as my skin retained all its hydration.
I usually use this in conjunction with Renew & Hydrate Eye Cream and Purely Nourishing Cream, but I have also used it on its own and loved it!
Tip: Sometimes in the morning after I wash my face I will put more on under my makeup for an extra-luminous look!
At my age, deep wrinkles are a challenge. For a month, I have used Active Cell Renewal Serum, along with Multi-Wrinkle Repair, every night and I can see a noticeable improvement. Deep wrinkles are less obvious and smaller wrinkles are barely there anymore. My skin is much softer and healthier looking.
I love how my skin looked after only one use!
I just recently purchased it and I love it. I just started using more complex treatments for my skin than going to the local pharmacy and getting some generic moisturizer. The girl at the store, Karolinne, was very helpful and completely understood what I needed. I am a fan of Bare Mineral Make-up since they were just on TV and I thought their skin products would be as magical as their makeup and I was right! After one use I was excited to see my skin smooth and it did not feel heavy or oily! Love the product!
Worth the extra money!
I was a little leery about trying such an expensive product, but I have found that it is worth the cost. If I had shelled out a bunch of money, but only saw minimal impact I wouldn't be writing this rave review. I noticed a remarkable difference in skin hydration the morning after I first used the product. The very next morning! In addition to the increased moisture retention of my skin, and an overall increase in softness, I have seen a positive impact on the acne I have been struggling with. I'm not sure if the increased hydration has made increased production of my skins natural oil unnecessary thereby alleviating most acne issues or if there is a compound in the formulation that actively targets acne precursors, but I'm sold either way. I'm surprised and impressed with the expected and unexpected results I have garnered from the use of the product. Give it a try!
But a great product helps with my acne scars , texture, and makes skin so soft
Miracle in a bottle!
My combination skin was going crazy this winter. I tried this and honestly had amazing results! It helped sooth my skin & helps natural on. A little goes along way & a full-size bottle lasts me 5 months. I was hesitant to buy this at first because of the price but this & the pure transformation night treatment are the best things I have ever used on my skin. Seriously try this, you will love it!
Extroardniary lil miracle in a bottle
I have been using this for about 2 weeks now, and All I can say is EXTROARDINARY! I wake up, my face is firmer, vibrant, awake, the lil lines I had around my eyes are GONE! the sun spots are GONE! I am sooo addicted! This is sooo worth the price! YOU WILL LOVE IT! I love you BE!!! Thankyou for all your wonderful products, I do not use anything else. :)
Salvation for Acne!
I was initially very skeptical of trying this. When it was released I was just in my mid-twenties & didn't think I needed an anti-aging product, despite being told by a doctor that I had low skin elasticity & once I started to age, it would be irreparable & drastic. But I went into my local boutique & heard an employee rave about how it had completely helped her acne, which I could physically see. I never grew out of my acne after puberty & while it got exponentially better after switching to the Bare Escentuals skincare line, I was still suffering from very rare breakouts. So, the employees kindly gave me a few samples & 2 weeks later & was back in the boutique buying my own bottle & have used it every night since its release. Now my breakouts are COMPLETELY gone & my skin looks beautiful & smooth. I HIGHLY recommend it for people that suffer from acne, regardless of their age.
