Rated 5 out of 5 by Koney 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Allyk 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mandi303 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SJB877 Great for my dry/oily skin
I wasn't sure if this would work for me or not, but I gave it a chance and it has been great. My skin is usually really dry on my nose and cheeks while at the same time being oily on the sides of my nose and on my chin. After using this one night, no more flakes and no more oily! It's been fantastic, and I definitely notice the nights that I forget to use it - very dry patches the next day. It might be a steep price, but for me, it's worth it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by willow My favorite product !
I received a sample of this in one of my monthly shipments and had tucked it away. I completely forgot about it until one day I found it after we had moved and I was unpacking at our new home. I had to look up how to use it. After a few uses, I had to buy the full size bottle. Now, I always have it on hand, and I'll never go another day without it. It truly is the fountain of youth in a bottle !
Rated 5 out of 5 by melissa25rn I love this product
I use this as a part of my nightly ritual. It's light and makes my skin soft and smooth. I could tell a difference in my skin after the first night of using this product. My pores are visibly smaller, skin smoother and brighter. It's worth the money and it only takes a little to cover your face. It's great for my sensitive skin!
Rated 5 out of 5 by elizey7 Best Solution EVER!!!
I was worried about this product, because it seems like a product that older women would use (I'm only 16). I bought this at one of the boutiques and the women explained that absolutely anyone could use it. I trusted them, and they were right. My skin looked absolutely amazing after just one night! It was softer and had more elasticity. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone.

I have had this product for 1 week and my skin is amazing! My skin is so soft and smooth!
Rated 3 out of 5 by whambampam OK, but not active enough for me to renew
I was bummed by this product. I had been using a similar product that was of a similar texture by one of BM's biggest competitors. This one was much cheaper, so I gave it a solid run. However, did not see or feel the results I had been under the competing serum. I found the other complementary products did not apply easily over this one, & all the instructions said this was the one that needed to be first on skin. The dropper is also to big & delivers too much serum.
Rated 2 out of 5 by MrsH4613 So disappointed
So I held out until my sale date to purchase this. The employee in the store introduced it to me when I got my first foundation match done and I thought it made my skin feel incredible, but I just couldn't afford it. I had purchased a full line of BM makeup for my wedding, but my skin is very sensitive and acne-prone (with lots of flaking and dry patches... it can't make up its mind) and I felt like this was the missing step in my skincare regimen. For the first two weeks, my skin looked and felt great... luckily, the wedding was in that first two weeks. SInce then, my skin has been breaking out horribly and the only thing that has changed was adding the ACR Serum. I'm going to take a two-week break to see if it helps, but as of now, I'm incredibly disappointed.
Rated 3 out of 5 by ElizabethAshley So far, so good
I have only had this for a day, but after one night of using it, I woke up the next morning and my face felt soft and even looks even better, I'm excited to see how this will make my skin look!

I also agree with others, just a little pricey,but you get what you pay for. This product makes my skin feel so good. The most noticeable tightening up the turkey neck area. I also use the wrinkle serum, don't need both. This BE product all is needed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Noeliz MUST HAVE!
Although this product is pricey, it's worth it! I have extremely dry skin due to the fact that every night I use benzoyl peroxide on my face to help with acne. My skin was so tight and flaky and literally every moisturizer I used did nothing to help! Not even kidding. I was a little hesitant to use this product because it is a type of oil, but I gave it a shot anyway because I needed my dry skin gone! I used it just one night hoping that when I woke up my skin was going to look and feel better. And sure enough it did. I was surprised that I didn't even break out. Not one pimple emerged on my face, and boy, let me tell you how surprised I was about that. My skin is still a bit dry but it's definitely better than before! My redness was reduced, and I noticed a glow to my skin tone. I recommend this to anyone who's looking for moisture and beauty to their skin.

i tried the sample sent to me with my order and i really love it. my skin looked fresher when i applied my makeup in the morning, which in turn make me feel even more confident. I love this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Liliana E In love with this product!!!
OMG!!! This is one of my favorite BE skincare products! I've been using BE skincare products for over a year now and absolutely love how my skin feels up to now. I can say I have smooth skin because of this. Thank you BE for your amazing products, i'm never changing to anything else..
Rated 4 out of 5 by JamieLisa Don't know why this works, but...
First off, I gave this 4 hearts because of the price. I'm not saying it doesn't deserve it, but for the cost I think you should get a little more. Now, I have no clue why this doesn't make my skin break out. It feels a little tacky going on, so I expected to break out after a few days of use. Not one bit!!! I started using this at the tail-end of our brutally hot summer, with other BE skin care products. I'd put it on before bed. It didn't feel heavy, but it didn't absorb completely into my skin. When I woke up in the morning, my face looked fresh, dewy and rested. I was surprised. I continued using it until I was almost out, then I stopped because I thought I could skimp and do without. In that time, I had some breakouts that left dark spots and a little scarring. Majorly bummed. Two months later, I realized I had some serum left and got 4 more uses. I'm surprised...not only does my face look fresh and hydrated (now freezing winter), but the dark spots look like their fading a bit! No joke! I went to my local boutique and bought another bottle. To make it last, I use it every other night. That seems to work well. Oh, still no breaking out :-)
Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyBerry Happy Face
Got this as a sample when it first came out and results were immediate. I mean what product actually works on the first night right? usually these costly products say results in a week or two but results from this product were evident the next morning. I wash my face and apply this product. That's it!!! no moisturizer over it, and no mixing with other products. It's that great on its own. The Multi-Wrinkle Repair says it can be combined with this product but if that product was so great for $50 it should be able to do what this product does. I cannot live without this night serum. A little dot goes a long way so you definitely get your moneys worth here.

I used the samples I was given and it lasted a long time. My skin felt smoother and no more skin dryness. I love it and recommend it to everyone
Rated 5 out of 5 by Deb1 Amazing Product!
I first bought the starter set 2 days ago. The Active Cell Renewal Night Serum came as a sampler, I used it right away, and it has provided amazing results right away! I woke up this morning and there were no more bags under my eyes and the fine lines have faded. I can only imagine what a month of using the product will do! I am on line to buy my first bottle!
Rated 5 out of 5 by RaeLee GREAT PRODUCT
I use this in the mornings before my wrinkle serum and moisturizer and at night if I don't use retinol. It is great; my skin is no longer dry and flaky. I believe that it not only moisturizers the skin but draws the other products into the skin. After having allergic reactions to so many other products, I'm sticking to all Bare Escentuals products for my face now.
Rated 5 out of 5 by creativediva1 If you use only one thing...wow....
I'm not the type that uses or is good about using face, eye, neck cream. I need to be better about it. however, I tried this product on a whim thinking..gosh, I have been trying a lot of different spot creams and things...I love the BE brand and decided to give it a shout..plus the 'clinically proven' always gets my attention.
Well....they say put a pearl size amount in your palm and use it all over your face. Mmm hmm.. I guarantee the first time you use it you might use a little more. I applied some and instantly my skin felt 20 years younger. I applied more...I couldn't get enough the first time I used it until my whole face felt 20 years younger. I thought...wow...if it's that much better to the touch..I can't wait until I wake up tomorrow to see what happened overnight. And wow. This product is the nicest product I've used, almost ever..if not ever. It's incredible and I adore it and will never ever go without it again. I am tempted to put it on morning and night but sticking to night so far.....Thank you for creating this product and please don't ever discontinue it.....I'm deeply enamoured and it's the first time I've been excited enough to never miss a night! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by RougeLippe This Fixes EVERYTHING
This product is for everyone. I feel like every skin issue can be solved or diminished with this product. My skin is more even toned and I feel like any blemish that I get doesn't last as long when I use this product. Even the texture of my skin has been improved.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KylieMeg WOW!
It makes your skin look so smooth! I used this around my eyes along with their eye cream, and wow! I have early sings of aging around my eyes. I have the puffy bags and dark circles and a touch of the smile lines around my mouth. I put this on and slept with it over night. I was a little worried it would make my me break out because of my oily skin, but to my surprise it didn't! The product is an oil consistency, but it sinks into your skin easily. I would recommend it, even for oily skin in a heart beat! It just plumps up the skin and smooths everything out. My wrinkles aren't too deep yet, so I'm not sure on how it works on very deep wrinkles, but for me it was perfect.

I could not believe how fantastic my face looked and felt the instant this serum went on my face! I received a small sample and loved it. When I ran out, I thought "Well, that was nice." ;( Then I realized that this stuff was what my thirsty tired face needed. Now that I have been using it for months, I see it really is cost effective. I use less layers of moisturizer, even in winter. My skin is never greasy in the T-zone, and my dry areas are not dry at all. I was using layers of thicker moisturizer from another brand (sorry!) when the temperature dropped, and was not thrilled with the results. As soon as I used this again, I realized how much I needed it! My skin and I thank you, Leslie!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Talk about "escentual"!!!
As I read all the other reviews, I had to tell you my story. Another young lady had written about using her free samples. I did the same, but I'm so broke that I even cut the sample open and wiped the inside of the packet on my face. I'm afraid to use it every night because I'm scared I will run out. However, tonight I"ve made the decision to use it every night. I tend to use too much because of my eye issues, then I want to use it every where else. Leslie, I promise to follow directions and use a pearl size drop (a very large pearl) and then start with my eyes and then the rest of my face. This is a little hint for all the beautiful woman that use this or other similar products to moisturize and prevent aging lines. Take your product and massage it on your upper lip. You need to stretch the lip over your front teeth so you can get to that line where the lip meets your face skin. You can then get in really deep and MASSAGE softly into the creases that have already started, that don't show yet. Go right into the corners of your mouth as well. It's amazing what it does for all those other parts we don't see YET!! To all my BE friends, $50 is not a lot of money for a miracle. When I bit the bullet and finally purchased it, it didn't hurt at all says my Visa card. Thanks for your time. Pat T
Rated 5 out of 5 by KSGirl Great addition!
I use this every night along with my eye cream and moisturizer (also Bare Minerals). I have problems with laugh lines, but I believe this serum helps with that and makes my skin extremely soft. I read in a beauty magazine that serums are best moisturizers and should be used at night when you are resting, after using this I believe they are right! I can definitely tell when I run out. A must if you have fine lines!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Roxenia Had high expectations...
And maybe that was my biggest problem. I read the reviews and was thinking, wow, maybe this product would be the one to alleviate my flaws. However it really does confirm how much my face is seriously problematic. I have been using this product for weeks now. I still have huge pores on my nose and I'm not sure if the whiteheads are coming out more now because of the product and if that is a good or bad thing. I know pores will never go away but mine just never minimize at all no matter what I seem to use. I really don't see any huge impact on my face when it comes to moisture, an even tone or a balanced complexion. Maybe I'll see an improvement as I continue to take it.
