Skin Rev-er Upper
I love this product. It is making my face feel smoother and it's helping my complexion. It doesn't make your face feel sticky or oily. It's a must have!!
BEWARE if you have sensitive skin!!!
I have very sensitive skin and the acid ingredients in this meant to "smooth" the facial skin made my skin become burning, red, and severely dry.
I adore BE because they are the only makeup brand my skin can tolerate, but because of the price on this I wouldn't recommend that anyone with sensitive skin try this, unless you don't mind throwing the money away.
Great treatment. But something to keep in mind...
Love it! But not to be used with some moisturizers.
I received this product prior to switching to BE cleansers and moisturizers. I found that when I applied this over my moisturizer I got these little white ‘balled up’ looking chunks of product. If anyone has every pet a dirty and dusty dog or horse… then rubbed their hands together and you get those little balls of dirt and oil, then you’ll know what I’m talking about. But this was happening with my moisturizer.
I was using Clean and Clear and Clinique at the time. This didn’t happen with Clinique, but did with clean and clear (and my friend had it happen with Neutrogena products). We both have switched to BE facial care since with no problems… not to mention both of us have better looking skin!
This stuff is great! However… just keep in mind it may not work as well with some products
Vitamins For Your Skin! Improves Texture, Softens
I love this! Vitamins for your skin. This smooths my skin, gives it an even color, and improves the texture of my skin. This, combined with the Pure Transformation Night Treatment has completely changed my skin for the better. My acne scars have faded, the little bumps I have on my face are smoothed over, and the color of my skin is more even. When I don't use this, my skin starts to look "bad" again, so this really works. I cannot be without!
Glycol and Salicylic Acid
Where have I been? This stuff is great for acne prone skin because of the salicylic acid and glycol. Along with the blemish treatment, you've got some really good healthy stuff that won't irritate your skin. What's great is that it's not heavy and greasy. It goes on skin so smooth and absorbs into the skin within seconds. I'm so glad that I bought this product. It will be part of my everyday regimen.
I LOVE this product!
My mother gave me this product as a gift and I really just assumed it would be another moisturizer. I never use moisturizer on my face because it is so oily and it would just make my skin worse. I started using it anyway thinking that if it made me break out I would just throw it away. I was COMPLETELY wrong about it! It actually has made my skin LESS oily and has made it much smoother. I have stopped using make-up on my face most days because my skin just looks so amazing. I don't feel like I have to hide my face anymore. I have very ivory skin and this just makes my skin look radiant. (Don't tell my mother that she was right about this product!)
I never knew...
After using this product for a brief time I began to notice a huge difference in my skin. It was softer, smoother, & dare I say...silky even. My skin tone appears more even, & my pores are less noticable. Even my husband is seeing the difference! I never knew joy culd be found in a small bottle!
Got this product in a kit and didn't use it for three years because I thought it dried out my skin. I tried all types of expensive and department store moisturizers without success. Lately decided to use give BE moisturizers a try because I have always loved the foundation and mineral veil. Still the foundation would need a complete retouch because of my oily t-zone. Thought I will just try the Rev-er Upper and with the balance of the BE moisturizers it is perfect for my skin. And if I add the original primer that I just discovered it lasts all day with maybe a touch of mineral veil towards the evening. I'm so happy! Yes it is some extra steps, but is so worth it and is so much lighter then traditional foundation. :) Pure awesome and fine lines so improved.
The very first time I tried this product I fell in love with it. I did not want to pay the amount of $$ for it but I did. When I run out, I do not hesitate getting another bottle. I love the way my skin look and feel when I put this on. I use morning and night.
I'm 15 years old and i have combination skin, i'm just like in lovee with this! i dont even need to put on primer after this because this makes me makeup go on smoothly and it makes it look natural<3 there's nothing more i could ask for, this is just tooo perfect, yes i'm a guy(: this is how natural i look with the bare vitamins skin rev-er upper under my makeup(: no the picture is not photoshopped, i just put a caramel colored towel over the lights xD
This is my favorite product. It has evened out my skin tone, smoothed and softened me face too! This is a must have!
My skin loves this stuff...
It does take time for this stuff to really work it magic, and when it does, you will never go back!
First off, it goes under the moisturizer! When you apply it, make sure your face is lightly damp. I usually wet my hand after I've washed my face and flick the water on my face. Next, squirt 1 pump in your hand and dab your finger in it and dab your cheeks, chin, nose and get a good amount on the forehead. A half squirt may be needed for the forehead. Then just rub it on the face. Let it dry partly then add moisturizer!
Once your skin absorbs everything, add primer and have fun!
This took me a few months to get the combo right for me, so just test what works for you. I did break out when I first used this stuff and I realized now that my pores were purging slot of junk out, thanks to this stuff and now I almost never break out!
Fast and Effective
I first got the Skin Rev-er Upper in the Get Started Kit. I wasn't sure how to use it so I let it sit idly by for a few weeks. But I decided that I didn't want to waste it and there was no going back once I tried it.
I have oily and sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts. I noticed a very huge difference almost immediately after I put this on my face. My skin was so much smoother and I had fewer and milder breakouts. The smell doesn't bother me, I usually don't notice it and it's so light and not greasy at all. I've had my bottle for a while so it's really worth the investment. I only use one pump for my entire face right before I put on moisturizer. It makes a world of difference in my skincare routine.
I received this product in a set with another product and really didn't like it. I could figure out when you were supposed to use it. I use the BE moisturizer already, so I didn't want to use it as a moisturizer. And after I'd put my moisturizer on, it didn't feel good over it. I didn't want to put it on over my makeup, because then it messed it up. Also, it had an odd kind of chemical smell to it. I gave this away asap.
It's definitely my fault...
Let's begin saying I started out full of good intentions for this product: apart for the smell, which took me a little bit getting used to, I was already conquered by the description. What you need to know is that I first got this product when I was a tender teenager and my skin used to behave accordingly: uber-sensitive (I am an allergic subject), but with an oily-ish T-zone... I got Skin Rev-er Upper when I bought my first Get Started kit and after just one day I noticed my skin felt super smooth. Love at first sight, you might say... Alas, no! Because after three to four days of applying this product just once a day, my skin got all bumpy, as if I had thousands of little pimples coming up... At first I put the blame on my hormones-freaked condition of teenager, so I waited three years before going back to a new bottle, full of hope... No, no change at all... Still perfect after the first day, dry, bumpy and itchy afterwards... :(
I'd recommend this product to those who have a fairly tough skin, not a sensitive one like my own... Sorry Rev-er Upper, between the two of us it was just not meant to be!!! I still give it 3 hearts because I'm partially responsible for the failure of our relationship, but I still wish there was a gentler version...
Skin Rev-er Upper--A Wonderful Product!!!!!
Skin Rev-er Upper is a great product to begin your skin regiment before applying the wonderful Bare Minerals make-up. I'm so pleased with all the products. I receive so many compliments on my make-up.
I have very dry sensitive skin so most products w/ glycolic acid or hyaluronic acid are too harsh for my skin. My mother had a bottle of the bare vitamins so I tried it. Once a day is perfect for me. GONE is the flaky skin and my complexion looks amazing even before I use foundation!
Must have with BE foundation!
This makes a huge difference on the way your skin feels after applying foundation. It keeps your skin moisturized all day and prevent any flaking if you have dry skin. My skin tends to be really dry around the nose and mouth areas, and this keeps these areas moisturized and the foundation stay smooth throughout the day.
Helps make up stay on longer
I used this product for the first time this morning and I think it does do what it says. I used exactly one squirt and applied before I used my moisturizer and primer. Today I noticed that my makeup lasted longer today and I only used mineral veil twice today. My face does seem smoother and more refined and for that I like it. I did notice however that I did have a slight peeling of the product but I am not sure if that was this one or the Prime Time Oil Control primer. (See my review for that). I think I need to play around with the amounts that I putting on. Currently one pump for each. I have extremely oily skin. Will let you all know!
Skin Rev-er Upper kick starts my make-up routine!
I love this stuff. I initially ordered the prep and prime kit which comes with a small bottle of the Rev-er Upper and I just ordered a full size to make sure I never run out before my auto-shipment comes in.
It has helped smooth out my skin, and more importantly, it helps minimize my Ginormous pores to a point where they're not very noticeable. I think the glycolic acid as well as the salicylic acid in particular are the key ingredients that are helping my pores. The botanical and vitamin ingredients are also great and I think those are the ones that leave my skin feeling plump and juicy - like a baby's! I use the Prime Time some of the time, but I ALWAYS use the Rev-er Upper, sometimes twice a day.
Definitely a product that I won't be letting run out!
I didn't see any change with this product. If anything- it irritated my skin. I was so excited to get this and the Primer, and I was very disappointed. :(
I have tried many different products. Until I tried Bare Vitamins Skin Rev-er Upper nothing worked. Then I ran out!!! I tried store bought expensive wrinkle creams and moisturizers, all of which did not work. I just waisted my money on them!!! Bare Vitamins Skin Rev-er Upper does what it says it does. It smooths out my skin, so you don't see the lines and wrinkles. I am sold, it is on my auto order from now on.
part of my am routine
I don't feel complete unless I include this as part of my am routine. I used to just moisturize prior to makeup application, but now I apply skin rev-er upper, then moisturizer, then primer. The difference is amazing! Not only has it helped my complexion, but makeup application is so much smoother. Only downside is that I think it has a slightly funny smell - similar to acne treatments which makes sense considering some of the ingredients. The smell doesn't last though. Absolutely worth it!
I feel so AWAKE!
I love this stuff. It is super light and feels amazing. It wakes my skin up every morning. And it lasts forever! Love it.
I really wanted to like this...
But the product simply peels and flakes itself off of my skin OR gives my skin that effect after putting it on. Yuck!! If I want an exfoliator, I'll use one, not this. As for making BE products easier to apply, even, etc., I'd have to compare it to simply moisturizing your face before using any product. The effect is the same.
Sorry- it just doesn't work for me!
i love that this lotion is so light. I hate heavy creams/lotions and this is excellent. It dries so quickly, but leaves moisture in its wake. It perks your skin up and prepares your skin for priming and makeup. I have normal skin with the occasional pimple. When I started BE, I had a few pimples and this cleared them right up! And it never has dried my skin out. It is a great product :3
I love it
This product is one of many I am in love with. I am a 10 yr. cancer survior and my skin has gone through many changes since then. It is not the same.I tried every kind of products but it seemed to make my skin worse. I really prayed about finding the right products for my now very dried up ,wrinkle forming skin. I saw Leslie on an informercial and I was hooked. I love not only this product for it's gentleness on my skin but for all the products and what it has done for my skin. I tell all my friends and especially those who has or is a cancer survior to purchase this product and all other products. Thank you Leslie for making me feel beautiful again.
Skeptic No More!
I just received my first Bare Minerals package yesterday. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical because I have very sensitive skin. My face is flaky yet by the end of the day really oily looking. I used the Skin Rev-er Upper this morning before trying the bare minerals for the first time and again this evening after washing my face. I am more than pleasantly surprised!! After one day, I can honestly say my face looks and feels MUCH better. It's less flaky and it's as smooth as a baby's! I can't stop feeling my cheeks! Love it! It will definitely be on my auto renew list!! Thanks Leslie for a wonderful product!!
The perfect exfoliant
I did not want to use it at first because I have sensitive skin. I thought it would make me break out, but it doesn't! It makes my skin feel so smooth and soft, I have noticed a better texture and color to my skin. It's a wonderful product!
Love this product!
I have oily skin so I was skeptical to try this because I thought it was just another moisturizer. I had some dry patches so I decided to give it a shot, -- immediately my face felt soothed and happy. When I went to wash my face later that day, i felt how soft my skin was. I have been using this twice a day ever since. I have noticed less oil and breakouts. It started out as an extra item in my starter kit, now I can not live without it.
