Skin Rev-er Upper
Staple as part of my weekly routine
Rev-er upper was included in my first starter kit when I purchased it 7 years ago. I thought it was a moisturizer so I was using it every morning and at bedtime as part of my skin care routine. After a few weeks I noticed my skin looked brighter and I was less oily throughout the day. A few months later I bought my mom a starter kit for her birthday. After several weeks she told me she thought her skin looked brighter and seemed less oily too. We both started getting complements on how pretty our complexion was and how good our skin looked. Neither of us were wearing makeup everyday but we were using the rev-er upper twice a day. We also noticed our skin was becoming very dry and we have combination and oily skin. We went to the boutique for advice. After the saleslady explained the product and how to use it, we realized we were using it too often. We now use the moisturizer for combination skin every morning and evening in our daily routine and use the rev-er upper under foundation on makeup days or at least once a week at bedtime. I can tell how much better my skin looks the morning after I have used it the previous day. This product is absolutely amazing and has does wonders to smooth our skin and enhance our complexion.
This is probably one of my favorite products to use from this line. I always put it under my moisturizer and I don't know why I haven't started using it before. My face looks so refreshed after I put it on. I think it works best when using all of the skincare products together. I know I'm young, but it is never too early to start treating your face. I'm 20 and people always think I'm at least 17, so I definitely will age well the more I use the products!!! MUST BUY
I began using bare minerals a little over 5 years ago. When I purchased the starter kit and began using the product I was disappointed at the results. When I applied the foundation it appeared cakey, and didn't make my acne look very subtle. After reading a few reviews online I decided to purchase the skin rev-er upper. This product completely changed bare minerals for me. Not only did it make my skin feel "awake" it smoother my imperfections and made the foundation look completely natural. I have not found any product since that has been able to do the same. I highly recommend this to anyone who is self conscious about their blemishes. My only complaint is that with combination skin, it did make my complexion a little shiny but I carried the oil absorbing sheets for that!
Love it !,
I have been using this product sine it came out! I put this on before I put my make up on. I love it! I get many many compliments on my skin. I do not use the prime time I don't like it so I use this in its place! Love love it!!
No results whatsoever
I purchased this because I saw it in a magazine with good reviews. I love BE, but I got absolutely nothing out of this product. I used it every day and noticed absolutely no difference in my skin. I actually forgot what it was supposed to do in the first place because nothing happened. Everyone's skin is different I suppose, but it just didn't work for me.
Best product for a natural glow
This product is great for its gentle exfoliation and prepping for foundation. My acne scars have diminished because of this product. Join the BE club and you can try this with many other amazing things to go with your foundation and its cheaper in the long run!
Better than the higher priced versions
I have been using this product for approximately 3 weeks and can see and feel the difference. I've tried numerous products to combat the uneven tones and combination skin I have but have not had any luck except to empty my pocketbook! I'm thrilled with the results in such a short time and have actually been able to ditch the makeup on the weekend and just put this on and a little bit of Mineral Veil. Thanks BM for such a wonderful skincare and makeup line....I'm a customer for life!
I have been using BE for 6 years. To this day, this is the one thing I cannot live without. It is also the ONLY thing that doesn't make my skin breakout. I have extremely sensitive skin and have literally tried hundreds of products, but this is the only product in the world that keeps my breakouts at bay and makes my skin smooth. I use it even when I don't wear makeup. I hope they never discontinue, because it is my favorite.
So far, so good
I'm not the type that's willing to take extreme measures to improve my skin so after reading the overwhelming positive reviews about this product (here and on other beauty retailers' websites), I decided to pick up a bottle and give it a go. So far, Skin Rev-er Upper looks like it's going to be a keeper. One pump covers my entire face, it absorbs instantly and leaves my skin with a smooth, matte finish. I haven't experienced any adverse reactions (breakouts, rashes, etc.) and have noticed that my skin stays more matte throughout the day since I started using it. This product is another reason I'm a Bare Minerals "lifer!"
I have used this for only two day but my skin is so soft! It has evened my skin you well! All I needed was two pumps for my entire face. I would recommend this to anyone.
I just turned 30 and am really starting to think about my skin. I have not developed any lines or wrinkles yet, but I had started to see less elasticity in my skin. I decided to give this a try. I love it. It has evened out my skin tone and given it a better texture. It looks like the skin I had 5 years ago. I use this after my Clarisonic cleanse and before my moisturizer. It has become a staple in my skin care regimen and I hope to all that is holy that they don't discontinue it!!
Go to acne product for sensitive skin
I have extremely sensitive skin and a small amount of acne. I have only been able to use most acne products for very short amounts of time without irritation or allergic reactions. I was skeptical at first because of some of the other reviews warning against using this product if you have sensitive skin. I was pleasantly surprised just how much I love this product. I have had stubborn blackheads on my nose for over 15 years that wouldn't go away with any treatment... they were gone after just two weeks using this cream. I use just a pump everyday before I apply my moisturizer and voila, beautiful smooth skin. Give this product a chance!
I have used BE products forever - this is still my all time favorite. Exfoliates / cleans pores / clears acne / brightens skin tone / light moisturizer.
I have tried all kinds of moisturizers because my skin/face is so dry. The rev-er upper is amazing and when applied it awakens me and feels cool and my skin immediatley feels "reved" up to go. I highly recommend this. I'm very picky and this is a must before appling foundation, or even just a bare look.
I have used probably every brand of moisturizer on the market. I got the rever upper with my mineral stater kit last year and I have only used it a few times but what I am recognizing is it is my go to fix when my face is having a fit. I started using Nuetrogena's Tone correcting with helioplex and that was pretty good but I have a retinol prescription I use at night and I noted that my face was just looking dead ... my skin had no life to it so I have been using the rever upper while I decide what to do next and I am pretty sure the rever upper is my next choice of moisturizer. However, I see from other reviews that it is not "technically" THE moisturizer? I have always used it as such but I'll see how I like it once I finish the sample before I buy another but good product!!!
BFF my skin
I am getting up in years, but this makes my skin smooth and more youthful looking prior to applying the foundation and mineral veil. KEEP IT! Don't every let it be shelved.
Not a Fan
I switched to the skin rev-er upper after using Prime Time brighner. First, the Rev-er upper smells kind of lik wine... and it makes me break out. I've given my skin enough time to adjust to switching products, but I haven't had a clear face since switching. If you have sensitive skin, I don't suggest this.
Feels so good!
I apply this to my skin after my lotion every single day and can just tell that it makes my skin healthier. It is really light and easy to spread evenly, plus a little goes a long way. I totally recommend this to anyone and everyone!
I love this produce and the eye rev-er. They are my stable. I use them every time I put make up on. They help for that longevity effect. I get many complements regarding my make up and asked what I use.....BARE MINERALS ALL THE WAY
Don't hesitate to try this one!
This stuff is wonderful! I have highly sensitive skin - the least bit of moisturizer makes my forehead break out - so I was at a loss as to how to keep the skin from drying out. Then I tried i.d. about six years ago. It provides a great foundation for my makeup and actually clears up any skin irritations. I won't ever use anything else!
Great things come in same packages
This is a wonderful product! One pump covers my whole face with ease. It makes my skin glow.
The BEST product EVER!
I have had acne prone skin since I was 9-10 years old- that was until I started using BE and this life changing product. I use it 1-2 times a day and have not had a break out "just beacuse" I do still break out, but it is purely hormonal. The hormonal breakouts are not as bad as they use to be either, I use to get 10+ pimples and now I get maybe 4. This product has given me the confidence to leave the house without makeup on, which I had not done since I was 12 years old.
I was told a little while ago when in a BE store, this product was being discontinued, I hope this is not true. I will be devastated as I know many others would be. It literally CHANGED MY LIFE! Thank you, BE!
A little wary...
I felt somewhat deflated when I realized this product contains 2 parabens and propylene glycol. I had gotten myself all excited that this company is all natural. It appears they mostly are though. We'll see. I'm new to the products.
I used this before my moisturizer and after I applied my makeup I felt like my skin was tight and really itchy. I thought it was the makeup since I was new to the products but I stopped using the Skin Rev-er Upper and I haven't had a problem since.
Fills in my gapping pores and moisturizers my face juuuuust enough for me to continue my makeup application process. I rarely use it, but when I do, I notice my skin improves a little. I have combination skin usually and then in the winter I can have dry skin. So my skin is a little on the complicated side, but I've tweaked my products to work for me.
I am in love with the bareMinerals Skin Rev-er Upper. For Christmas, my aunt sent me one of their gift packages, and this little bottle was included. I use it every day. I reccomennd applying the serum within five minutes of getting out of the shower or right before bed. It comes in a tiny bottle, but it lasts much longer than you'd expect. Your skin will become softer and even-toned!
This is the most amazing under makeup moisturizer I have ever used. My skin is radiant and glowing from this product. I will never use anything else.
Why I love Bare/Rare Minerals
I started using Bare Minerals the 1st time I saw the infommercial way back when. I look younger every year. I'm about to turn 50 next June and I get carded more now because no one believes I'm not in my 20's or at LEAST 30's! I love it! To say the least. I never used a foundation before I found Bare Minerals, and the key to successfully using the product is the tools. To me this is one of them. When they re-formulated the Rare Minerals skin care, I thought I had lost my Skin Rever-upper...but I just signed on and saw it here and I'm over joyed!!! As soon as I use what I tried to replace it with (a good product but not BE!) I'll be buying it again! I thank God for every product Leslie has created, and I love my skin. I love the fact that I look soooo young, especially since I died for 20 days in April/May of 2010. I still haven't been able to reconcile that, I don't know what it will take to do it. I suffered Total Major Organ Failure. But I know I can look in the mirror and be happy with what I see there everyday and it helps. I had big red scars on my face from the tubes I had to live from for so many days. But with Bare Minerals and BE there's not a trace of any of them and they went away fast. I think that helps more than anything so far. Thank you Leslie, for helping me deal with my death and subsequent life thereafter. I think I'd be in a much worse place without you. I'm known as "The miracle girl" at my hospital, but Bare Minerals & BE are a big part of that miracle girl...a huge part. Thank you all. I'll NEVER USE ANOTHER PRODUCT, EVER. As long as I do live.
Stick with it
I have come to love this product more and more over time. I don't think I liked it much the first time I tried it. I used BE products for a few months about 2 years ago, and then for financial reasons, went back to using less expensive products. However, nothing I have used has come close to BE for quality and compatibility with my skin, so I am back on the bandwagon and here to stay! Now that I have been using Skin Rever-Upper for about 3 months straight, 1-2 times per day I can really see the difference in my skin. For best use, apply 1-2 pumps after cleansing/before moisturizing. If you notice peeling with this product, just stick it out. The peeling will stop after a month or so (maybe more, maybe less.) You may still have a "peel day" every now and again - but it's just your skin being renewed. If you still hate it after 2 months of regular use then maybe this product isn't for you, but it has been my experience that takes time for your skin to get used to it, but it really worth hanging in there for the long term results.
Disappointed by unnatural ingredients
Bare Escentuals is a name I felt I could trust to use natural ingredients in their products. Very disappointed to read that there are parabens in this, as well as panthenol (while it is natural, is often causes breakouts).
