Thank You Bare Minerals
I am 60 years old and have had acne since I had my first child. I have been to dermatologists and have used many treatments and regimens. A few months ago I called Bare Minerals and the specialist on the line suggested that I try Blemish Therapy. Wow, amazing results. I used it morning and night on my chin and nose. I could tell a difference the first day. After 2 months, my skin looks the best it has in 40 years.
Saw a difference in a day
I bought this per the recommendation of a friend with great skin. She said she saw a difference the morning after first using it. I put it on at night and did see improvement by the next morning. After a full 24 hours though, my problem area was looking MUCH better. I love that it also helps minimize shine and redness in the trouble spots. This is only my second day using the product, and I'm already in love. I've used Clearasil, Neutrogena salicylic acid face wash, LUSH's Grease Lightning (which also works well, but for some reason, wasn't effective this time on the numerous small eruptions I had on my forehead), toothpaste, etc. but bareMinerals is really doing the trick for me this time.
Doesn't go on!
I don't know why my experience was so different from all the great reviews, but this stuff just did not work for me. Like, at all. The first problem is that it doesn't go on my skin. I don't even know how to describe it, since I've never seen anything like it, but here goes: I put some in the lid, get some on the brush it comes with, tap off the excess, and attempt to apply. It literally just falls off of my face. I try to brush it on, and it's just doesn't stick. For this reason, it's unusable.
Let me start by saying I very rarely write reviews, only if something knocks my socks off. So with just that being said it is obvious that I LOVE this product. Ever since my college years, I have had more acne than ever before with nothing seeming to help, I think I've tried it all, with my acne getting especially worse in the winter. With this product I saw results OVERNIGHT. I'm not kidding, it was astonishing. I don't know why I'm surprised, bareMineral products rock! Whatever you do bareMinerals, don't discontinue this product!
With the understanding that I wouldn't consider myself to have problem skin--just a small eruption once per month--this stuff works. It's excellent blemish treatment for during the day, as it covers and heals, so you can live your life. I see a definite improvement in my blemish after an 8hr work day after using this product.
Best invention from bareescentuals
I'm using it daily and I do see the good results. It helps blemish plus to cover it up and even out the skin color. Thanks bareescentuals for this great invention. I've been looking for this kind of products for a long long time. Now I found this! I'm in love with this blemish therapy :)
I thought after reading all the great reviews about this product that I would love it. however, its just ok. I do like that it covers the redness. however, it looks cakey under my original foundation. I usually just use it at night now, and that is probably the best way for me. I accidently inhaled it in my nose when applying, and it made me gag for hours. its smell isn't all that great. but over its ok, prolonged use at night has helped.
Works like MAGIC!
After reading many reviews on this product, I decided to give it a try and I am oh so glad I did! I have blemishes around my cheek area and some small bumps/ little pimples (when it's that time of the month or from working out) and I just put a little bit on my problem areas in the morning and at night before bed ad the results are amazing. I've only had this product for a few weeks now and I'm addicted to it. As long as BE continues to make this product I will continue to purchase it! :)
Favorite product they have!
Covers up all my blemishes, I believe it works better than any liquid!
I was under the impression that it heals and conceals as advertised. I can say it heals in some way but it does NOT conceal unless you have a fair tone.
Love this effective, fast working product. I have sensitive skin that breaks out easily and this works miraculously. Highly recommend!
OMG. This is Amazing.
Wow. Simply Wow.
I am a sixty-something woman with combination skin who still gets the occasional outbreak of acne. I have never, ever seen anything that stops a zit like this. Ever. It doesn't stink. It does not cake. It is unobtrusive. It is magical. The irritation stops almost immediately. The skin heals beautifully. The zit(s) disappear.
Don't you dare discontinue this. This is an essential part of my routine.
Red rash breakout
I used this product when a breakout appeared. Usually once a month or less. Okay at first but now I have broken out in a horrible burning rash twice.
Take this on a deserted island!! Must have!
I don't have much acne problems. But after raising 3 teenagers, 1 girl and 2 boys, we NEVER run out of this! I have used this daily on all 3 teens and they call it my face crack! It reduces redness, helps eliminate blemishes in a day, reduces appearance of pores and so much more. They have all loved it and so I have been able to save their face many times. Everyone loves this! I give it as gifts to all their friends every year! We use to panic when one teen would breakout at the worse time. But now, with this weapon in my tool belt, we NEVER panic over acne! Keep this on auto delivery and you may be a hero to your teen too!
Bye Bye Redness
I don't have bad acne, but during that time of the month i get acne that pops up here and there. Before my acne was really red, but the blemish therapy helps reduce redness. It also helps with healing my acne quicker than any other product i have tried. I use it every day before i put my makeup on. Sometimes I will mix it with a tiny drop of water and use it as a paste on acne, leave it on for 15 min, and voila! Def a great product!
I have always had enlarged pores on my nose. I apply Blemish Therapy to my clean nose every time I wash. To date the pores on the sides of my nose are gone! Top of nose greatly improved. Would recommend to all my friends with blemish problems.
I LOVE this stuff. I actually like to use it over my bare minerals foundation as a concealer on my problem areas, it works like a charm! You can wear it alone as well, or as a night treatment; This stuff will literally dry out your pimples over night.
What I love most about it though, is that I can put it over my painful cystic acne that comes up around that time of the month and it will bring it to the surface much faster, cutting the healing time significantly. Great product! I will definitely continue to repurchase.
Found this product in an outlet store while on vacation, and was surprised at how well it worked. Never had much of an acne problem until I hit my 40's. I had always been using a different acne treatment for breakouts, until I tried this product. My skin had some breakouts at the time, so I was able to try it that night. Liked it well enough, went back and bought another to put back at home. This product doesn't dry my skin out, but seems to dry the blemish up. I apply with a cotton swab and have found a very small amount works. My blemish doesn't seem to hurt and bother me, in fact I don't seem to notice I have a spot until I look in the mirror. I've been impressed with this product.
100% Acne Solution
I have tried many other acne products. Many with high reviews and cost. I tried every reg old pharmacy shelf solution and NOTHING has worked like this product. I use it morning and night and in just FIVE days there was a huge improvement! The attached photo shows exactly this- the day I sent a pic to my husband saying how embarrassed I was and then BOOM- 5 days later. Same amount of make up (also bare minerals) and same side of face!
Sort of works
I bought this product wanting something new to try on my acne. It does dry out the area but be careful with how much you put on. I put some on my chest and it started to burn and itch like crazy. I have seen some improvement but not much. I don't think that I will buy this again but use up what I have.
I received this product in a trial size, I was skeptical at first as to how it was going to work, but I started using it and I can't complain. I don't always get blemishes, but when I do this is the first thing I grab. It works well and I notice within a couple of days the blemish(es) start to disappear.
So far... AWESOME
I purchased blemish therapy 6 hours ago- I made the mistake of purchasing cheap make up as a quick fix one day, and it caused break outs all over my face and neck. I purchased this, really on a whim, as nothing ever works for me, but I'm always open to trying new things to see if they happen to be "the one". And this is "the one", I think! All of my break-outs are MUCH smaller and are hardly able to be seen now! I'm shocked! I've had acne since I was a teenager, and it got better in the last couple of years, but when I do something stupid, I pay for it. And prescriptions, clinique, proactive, neutrogena, etc don't work for me... And my face is pretty sensitive to potentially harsh washes and treatments.
The one thing about it, though, is there is a pretty distinct tea tree oil scent, so if you're not used to that, it might irritate you a bit.
I noticed others have commented that the coverage isn't that great- I was actually quite pleased with the concealment of this product, but still used the BM concealer under my BM foundation just as an added coverage.
The only reason I gave 4 stars, is because this is only the first day I've used it- but loved it so much, I had to at least give a review, in case others were debating on purchasing :)
Very happy with this product, I've been using it for about 2 weeks and overall I think it's worked better than most other treatments I've tried for moderate acne.
I used to have acne back when I was younger, and I'm 26 now and get maybe one or two pimples every now and then. I've tried so many spot treatments, over the counter and prescribed stuff. I walked into the Bare Minerals store and saw this product, I actually had a wedding to go to the next day and had a nice size pimple on my chin, so I purchased this and decided to give it a try. I must say this stuff is amazing!!!! Completely made it shrink in a day and by the second day it was completely gone, without me having to pop it. Even if I feel it coming on I put it on and it's gone! I've told all my friends and family and swear by this stuff. I no longer use Benzol or Acid products on my face. I even put it on my cheeks and it's drastically reduced my pore size within about two weeks. Seriously worth $18 bucks!!! This stuff is amazing and I take it with me everywhere, especially when I travel and get to a new locations, sometimes the water to wash your face, or even the travel can stress you out and cause a pimple or two, we'll this stuff allows me to stay completely clear!!!!
My new must have!!
I love this item!! I had heard about Bare Minerals products before but have only recently started using them. While in the boutique, the representative told me about this product. She said that her supervisor had applied it at the beginning of her work shift and by the end it had improved.
So I decided to try it as I had some sort breakout on my eyelid which had been stubborn for a week without improvement and was irritating. I couldn't conceal it very well and I had a wedding the next day. I applied it that evening and before bedtime. By the next morning, it had improved dramatically and was barely noticeable. I went to the wedding a happy girl. It has worked multiple times for other "Mount Vesuvius-es" that have erupted on my face in like 1-2 days.
I was told to wear this over my foundation but it noticeable and does not conceal. So I might wear it under foundation or rub it in.
I carry it my purse to zap breakouts as they come. I love it and will never be without it! :)
I don't usually break out too often, mainly during that "favorite" time of month, but when I do there will be multiple ones, especially on my chin. I bought this so that it would help clear up my skin when I did break out.
The product has helped clear my face up more quickly than before I started using it. Some of my smaller blemishes disappeared almost overnight! I am not sure how well it is preventing blemishes, though.
The smell is strong, especially if you have blemishes around your nose, but it is due to the "natural sulfur" present (that helps to dry out the blemishes). However, it is not enough for me to stop using it! Also, because it is a light-colored powder, it doesn't really "conceal" (as advertised) with my medium skin tone, so I use it in conjunction with concealer. Also, the more you put on, the lighter it looks. Because of that, I usually put on a little before my concealer/foundation in the morning, and a lot more at night.
i bought this a couple weeks ago and started using it. i dont have a big acne problem but i do break out occasionally. I started using this on some of my problem areas and was completely disappointed :( it actually made me break out worse, and it was litterally over night! i love bare minerals to death and only use your make up and face wash so i was really bummed i had this bad of an experiance with this product. i understand everyones skin is different so in no way am i saying its a horrible product, its just horrible for my skin. :(
Use it every night
I use this as a preventative product in the areas I'm prone to break outs. I also use it when I have a pimple and it gets rid of it fast. My only issue is with the smell, it's kind of like menthol, but if it helps it work then that's fine.
After my roommate started using Blemish Therapy I decided to give it a try as well.
I believe it helps minimize my breakouts. I have been using it every morning and night as directed for the last few weeks and it definitely made a difference.
I don't think I've had as much luck as most other people using it on current acne, but it does help it go away faster than it did on its own.
My reason for knocking a star off of this, though, is because it is advertised to "Heal and Conceal". I do not have good luck with it concealing. If the zit is already almost gone, it does cover up that last bit of redness, but I usually have to use a regular concealer over the top.
I still love this product, but I am a little disappointed that it didn't quite work on me the way it was advertised.
Prepare to be Wowed!
I absolutely love this product! I have tried many acne products including Proactive and this works better bar none. I gave it a 4 because it has a funky smell that took some getting used to - not bad enough to discontinue using the product though.
