Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
Great and has Multiples ways to use it
I have been using the exfoliating treatment for almost 2 years now and I can truly say that I love it. This product is gentle enough to use daily for both day and night, or it can be used once every few days as strictly an exfoliant. When i first started using the product I was fascinated with the idea of using a powder instead of a cream as a fascial cleanser. Then i realized there were so many different ways you could use this product. By adding some water to the powder you could create a nice smooth and creamy lather that is gentle yet throughly cleans your face. After my face doesn't feel dry instead it feels smooth, soft and just enough moisture. The powder can also be used as a fascial mask by adding a tiny bit of water, applying to your face and letting it sit anywhere between 5-10 minutes. I do this every few days. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. I couple this with the deep cleansing foam and have found the two to be a great combination together.
Not effective for me
I started using this in conjunction with the Deep Cleansing Foam and moisturizer and just wasn't impressed. I didn't feel like it was doing much and after a week of using this combo of products, started to have breakouts. I'm 43 and having pimples showing up daily just didn't work for me! It went back to the store, along with the full-size Deep Cleansing Foam. I've gone back to the department store brand I'd been using, added in their exfoliating scrub and am much happier with the results. I'm glad it works for some, just not for me.
I must say that I absolutely love this cleanser more than the deep foaming cleanser and the facial cleanser. (and thats saying quite a lot) My face feels so squeaky clean afterwards without feeling dry or tight or anything like that. I was very skeptical looking at the powder in the bottle and then washed my face with it and was like WHAT?!?!? This has become my favorite cleanser.
Don't Let the Powder Fool You. It Works!
I have gone through many exfoliators and have now ended my search with this one. It works great. It takes a bit of trial and error to figure out the right amount of product for you to mix. My face feels clean and smooth after I use it. I haven't noticed a change in my pores yet. I've been using it for 2 months.
Cant go wrong with this
This product is so great!!!! I use it as a mask and also I use it twice a week to exfoliate my pores and what a difference it makes!!!! I've tried every product but bare essentials is the best
I wasn't really sure that this would work because it's a powder but it is AMAZING. Instead of using water I would recommend using the BareMinerals Foaming cleanser to activate it so you get like.... a foaming exfoliater with little beads and your skin feels super nice and clean!!! It is so gentle but you really see and feel it working. When I use it with water I feel like I have to use a lot of the powder but if you use it with the foam it works a lot better! LOVE IT!!!
most delicate exfoliator
I was mostly curious about this award winning exfoliator. It was a bit tricky to use, but with the advice from the Q&A section I finally nailed it! Just incase someone is reading this and wondering how to really use this product. Dampen your face (not dripping with water) and leave your hands a bit damp as well. Shake product into the palm of your hand, up to 6 shakes (it looked like approximately a teaspoon to me). With your other hand just sprinkle a few drops (about 4) into the powder and gently rub, if it's pasty and stiff add 2 more drops. You'll see it loosen up. After that, massage into your face and rinse. You're good to go. I definitely feel my skin smoother after I use this. Actually in the process of figuring out this product, i applied it to my face in more a paste form, tried to rub it on my face and soon my fingertips felt a bit sore...so incase you were doubting the exfoliating power of this don't! And please don't use it how i just described lol. It's really a good exfoliator and it is far more gentle than any other i have used!
So far so good
I have been searching for a product to help not only with adult acne but also to reduce the appearance of LARGE PORES. I have tried all the main stream products (proactive, murad, etc) that claimed to give you better skin but to no avail. My skin was equivalent to an orange peel with foundation on it. I was hesitant to try another product but it sure couldn't hurt. My results from using this product were amazing and fast. I noticed and so did many others that my pores appeared much smaller. My face feels so soft:-). I was a bit taken a back by the powder consistency but once you get the hang of it, you can dispense just the right amount. I tried using it as a masque as one of the other reviewers suggested and its like magic in a bottle. I almost forgot to mention something about the acne; I don't have that anymore. I am such a happy camper!!!!
I love how it leaves my face soooo clear and soft. I love the exfoliating treatment cleanser (:
Very Skeptical, but Great Product
I am a skincare junkie and I try products and can tell you straight what is garbage and what isn't. When shown this cleanser, I was not expecting anything other than a makeup remover. My skin is very sensitive, so I have had to pick and choose with exceptional care. This Product is Magic, it will clean your face and remove makeup, but it does it gently and without all the junk, plus it can be personalized to your needs by how thick or thin you want it. And your skin feels soft and smooth. My skin can become inflamed with some cleansers, where it's warm after washing, this product doesn't do that. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND this Product. Also, YOUR Moisturizer will actually work better after using this product. Buy it.
