Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin
Great product for everyday use
I use this everyday twice a day and love it. It's not greasy but it's moisturizing enough for everyday use. I do use the dry skin cream when my skin gets dry in the winter, but this is great for all year-round. I do wish it had a SPF in it which is why I didn't give it 5 hearts.
Why, oh why, did you change this?
I had used the previous formula lotion forever and it was the only one I could ever find that I did not have an allergic reaction to. Lo and behold, you change the formula, now I am allergic! Back to the drawing board for finding something I can use... So disappointed :-(
Love how it moisturizes without making your skin oily or not moisturizing enough!! I also love how it smells!! It smells so clean and refreshing. I am never gonna buy another moisturizer again.
Old formula was better
Why is this now only available for combination skin? I bought the older version of this, I think it was just called Purely Nourishing Moisturizer, and THAT was great. This new formula now makes my face a lot greasier. I'm very sad - I should've stacked up on the old formula!
I use this with the exfoliating cleanser and it doesn't make my skin too oily or feel pasty!!
Good for semi-dry areas, too much for normal skin.
This is really good for moisturizing the areas around my nose and mouth, which is a little drier than the rest of my face. But when I apply it all over my face, I tend to get tiny pimples. If your skin naturally produces some oils, this may not be good for you. But it's great for drier, but not too dry, skin.
I've always hated using moisturizers because my skin would feel greasy, or like I had a film under my make up which I've always hated. I know using a moisturizer is an important way to keep my skin healthy, so I decided to give this a "go" and it's great! It makes my skin feel luminous, and it doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything under my make up- if anything, it makes my skin more smooth and helps the application. I really like this product. It is fresh, clean, light, and gentle (my skin is sensitive too.) Thank you BE for keeping your products luxurious and effective without a huge price tag attached!
I had high hopes...
When I purchased this moisturizer I had high hopes! I was hoping it would moisturize, but not leave me greasy which would eventually lead to breakouts. When I first apply it after cleansing it feels awesome! Smooth, nourishing, but not greasy, then about 2 hours in I see the dry patches appear on my face. I have not given up on it yet I have only been using it for a week, and I want my skin to get used to it. I don't see as many dry patches as I used to but they are still there so maybe with time they will disappear completely, I plan on updating after I have used it for at least a month. I was hoping for instant results like many others had experienced based on their reviews but I realize everyone's skin is different. My fingers are crossed...
Never Been Happier
This is the best moisturizer I have ever used. I have been using it for about 2 weeks and have never seen such a change in my complexion. Pores are smaller, lines have diminished, and I look/feel so refreshed! I used the original purely nourishing moisturizer for about 2 years before this one came out and didn't feel this strongly about the results, I love the new smell and how smoothly it goes on. I am not one to write reviews usually, but I just had to brag on this product.
After all these years of trying every moisturizer on the market, I finally found one that works! It's so light that I don't even know that I have anything on my face. Just after a couple of days using it, I can see a difference in my face. My face is so much brighter and even looks hydrated and smooth. I HIGHLY recommend this moisturizer!
Love this product but I did not notice that it didn't have sunscreen until I used it for the first time. I use it at night but I don't think I'll purchase it again unless it is made with SPF.
Never leave home without it on!
I have used up scale moisturizers before but this beats them all by far. I used to get dry patches on my face especially in the winter, not any more. It is not heavy and feels very light when I put it on. It also has a very clean scent to it.
Changed formula doesn't measure up
I was in LOVE with this mosturizer and believed it to be miracle cream truly; however this new formula doesn't compare to the original. It has a bad smell now and it dries my skin out. I don't recommend this to anyone anymore. The dry formula MIGHT be more like the original, but I haven't tried it.
This seemed a little pricey at first, but the bottle is decently-sized, and you only need a squirt or two to cover your whole face. I have noticed dramatically smoother skin after using this moisturizer. It provides the perfect amount of hydration for combination skin. My t-zone still gets oily, but it takes a lot longer for that to happen than with other moisturizers. That means fewer touch-ups during the day.
I bought this the other day in the 30 day try me kit with the Purely Nourishing Facial Cleanser and absolutely love it!!!! I had tried the old version before they came out with this one and it made my whole face look and feel like an oil slick. My skin is dry everywhere even underneath my oily t-zone and if I don't use a moisturizer my whole face will itch. This new version is absolutely wonderful and no longer makes my whole face oily. My face is now soft and the moisturizer sinks in very fast. I only use this in the morning as I currently use Tarte's Maracjua Oil on my face at night. This works perfectly in conjunction with the Facial Cleanser. I will be buying the 2 pack facial cleanser from QVC and moisturizer locally so I don't have to pay shipping. Thanks for such a great product and for reformulating it!!!! Live long and Prosper:)
I bought this moisturizer to replace a moisturizing gel from a popular 3 step skincare line... and I love it! It smells really really amazing, and it goes on so smooth. I definitely think this helps prep my skin for my BE makeup... at the end of the day my face is still looking flawless.
I JUST CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS PRODUCT!
This moisturizer is remarkable. I have never in my life tried a moisturizer that does what this one does! I actually have oily skin in my T-zone and dry skin around my nose, so I definitely have combination skin. This product just blew me away. It smells great, and absorbs completely with no greasiness.It actually FEELS so natural, not like those other moisturizers with lots of chemicals and irritants. I used to get dry flakes around the sides of my nose, but not anymore. In 2 uses, I was shocked! My skin is now perfectly balanced! This moisturizer makes my skin so soft and smooth. I never get the redness after a shower anymore like I used to get. The last time I had skin like this was when I was a kid. Really, it is that amazing. It even makes my bare minerals foundation go on easier and stay put longer. Love it! It even makes my skin look brighter, more renewed, softer, more even-toned, and radiant. My skin now has that perfect air-brushed look BEFORE I put on my bare minerals foundation. Thank you Leslie and the Bare Escentuals team for an amazing product! I just can't say enough about it. THANK YOU!
I used to use phytomer hydracontinue facial moisturizer and after I switched to this one, my skin hasn't been oily by the end of the day! It's just enough moisture. It's also very affordable, I can't beat the price. It's quite possibly the best moisturizer I've ever used!!
Best product line ever!!!!!
I have been a faithful "pink" brand user for many years until I started to research some of the ingredients and decided to switch to something more natural. I have sensitive skin and breakout usually within the first use if I use anything too harsh. This product is amazing!! No breakouts, just wonderfully moisturized skin without excess oil and/or dry patches. Works perfectly with the foundation. My skin's appearance has improved with the first use. I am sold!
Wouldn't change this
I have tried so many things to help my skin (that is always to oily on my forehead, nose and chin), Plus always have breakouts for to dry to oily. Yet if I dont use anything my face it will flake on the dry sections. I am always scared to try anything but I did. Well worth it! My skin is the best I have ever had. It took about 3 weeks to fully see a huge difference but I wish I had before and after pictures worth the wait for permentant results. I wouldn't give this up for anything. I have used it for 4 months now and other than great skin nothing has changed!
Best Day Treatment!!!!!
I have mature, olive skin that stays dry year round. I had been using the same day moisturizer treatment for over 11 years, until this first aired on the Q. I've been using this as my am treatment and my skin thanks me for making the switch!!!!! I love the hydration and the natural clean smell of this moisturizer, along with all of the skin care products Leslie and her team has brought us. Besides the positive results of my change in product, that I see on my skin, the other determining factor to me, is that Leslie keeps her products at a reasonable price that we can all afford in today's economy.....so we can afford to have healthy skin. Thank you Leslie, for all you do for all of us.
Do not like the scent.
The moisturizer felt fine and I had no problems with it. I received it as a sample in my last order. I just do not like the scent.
Best Moisturizer I've used in years!
I purchased the Skincare Purifying Cleanser, Purely Nourishing Moisturizer, and blemish treatment on Tuesday. It's now Friday, and I already see and feel a difference in my skin! The cleanser gets my face clean without drying, and this moisturizer leaves my skin soft and not oily. Note: this moisturizer goes on better after this cleanser.
An amazing product!
I got the sample size when I ordered my Women of BE Eyecolors. I have fallen in love with this product. A little goes a long way. It felt soo creamy and lucious, I was worried that the oily parts of my face would act up... NOPE. Nothing happned, well not nothing, my face is radient and has a healthier feel. My pores look better and my skin looks more even and amazing. I'm buying this!!
good for normal skin
If you have acne prone skin or tend to be on the oilier side of combination skin introduce this slowly. It made me break out and I was very oily by lunch time. I would say if you have normal skin, try this. If you are on the drier side of combination, try it. If you break out easily, be careful with it.
Had a sample sent in my last order of this product and am hooked. It is the perfect moisturizer. After I applied make up in the past an hour after it settled I would have oil and have to use powder to touch up. After using this product, no more of that, its the perfect balance. I love it! an no more touch up!
I love all BE makeup from their foundation to eyeshadows. So was really excited to try this out. But my face got so oily and I had a huge breakout of acne all over my cheeks. So unfortunately this did not work for me.
My searching is over!
Living in a dry climate, it's hard finding the "perfect" moisturizer. I am one of those women who has spent an obscene amount of time and money trying to find a lotion that I could even give 4 hearts. I've been using this for a week now, and have already thrown away the very pricey moisturizer that I had settled with the last year. In a week my skin feels softer, more hydrated and healthier. Because this is non-greasy and light, my BE makeup goes on so much smoother and doesn't looked "caked on" like it did with other moisturizers I tried. They definitely hit the jackpot with this!!!
LOVE this product!
The whole reason I started with BE was because my skin has been rebelling against me for several months (due to an allergic reaction on one side of my face) and my friend who is an aesthetician recommended this brand to me. For years I have supplemented my income as needed as a free lance makeup artist (everything from theatre to bridal) so having my skin go crazy for so long has kind of sucked. It's hard to market yourself as a makeup artist when your skin looks terrible!
Anyway, the cosmetics were GREAT, except the area of my skin that had the previous reaction is now too sensitive for the Original Foundation. (The Bismuth Oxychloride set my skin off, but only in that one area.) I started using the skin care samples with the Blemish Therapy and my skin looked 80% better in just three days, so I bought the whole line!
What I LOVE about this moisturizer is that it is light enough to use TWICE a day, EVERY day without causing a breakout, yet it FULLY moisturizes my dry spots. On the RARE occasion that I get a REALLY bad dry patch, I use the Dry Skin formula as a spot treatment.
The ONLY thing I could so without is the smell. It smells kind of earthy, but what can you expect from a product that is ALL natural and has SOIL in it LOL! But as soon as it soaks into your skin the smell goes away, so it's a MINOR annoyance that lasts all of 15 seconds to put up with for smoother, more radiant skin. It's a trade off I can live with!
After years of searching for a moisturizer that didn't make my face break out, I was so happy to find the old version of this product. Now that it has been "improved", it smells like men's shaving cream and makes my face break out. If only BE had followed the old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
