Advanced Protection SPF 20 Moisturizer: Normal to Dry Skin - null
Creamy and Hypoallergenic
I LOVE this moisturizer....I am seriously allergic to the Avobenzone in many popular moisturizers...combine that with my trouble skin and we get weeks of steroids ect.... This is the first sunscreen I have been able to lather my face up with and have better skin than I started with. PLEASE PLEASE don't ever ever change this product!!! Make a new one if you have to, but leave this one alone. I am so thankful to have it in my cabinet! :)
Hmm! I actually like it
I've always strayed away from moisturizers with SPF because they're a bit on the thick side and leaves what appears to be a white film on my face (being dark, this is not a good thing). But, I actually like this product. Yes, it's a bit on the thick side, but it works and I didn't get the white film on my face. It's not something I'd purchase all year round, but I will definitley use it during the summer months.
Love This Product
It was in impulse purchase at the store and now I am purchasing more. It makes my skin feel moisturized and soft. On hot summer days I apply it in the morning and it gives me sun protection and color. I have rosacea and I have to be very careful what I put on my skin. This product and most of the bare minerals products work well for me.
Mix It With Your Other BE Moisturizers
I, too, have mixed feelings about this moisturizer. On the one hand, I love the tint and the glow that it gives to my skin. I wear Warm Tan foundation, and this is the perfect alternative or compliment to the foundation. However, I have to tug at this moisturizer to get it on. I've found that mixing it with my other BE moisturizers and then applying it works better.
Would suggest that BE reformulate this product. It is very hard to use on its own, and the longer I have it, the stickier the product become.
Still love you, BE!
Great Tinted Moisturizer
I love this product. It is fast and easy. Looks great. I can go without foundation. It does feel a little different at first but when you get used to applying it, it's great. It's especially nice on those mornings when I get up late(every day)!
Good Moister, bad application.
I was excited to try the new SPF moisturizer and have been using it for a couple of months now. While it does provide good moisture, it is incredibly hard to spread evenly! Its rather like trying to spread tacky Elmer's glue over your face. It takes a long time to absorb, and I have to wait 10 minutes or so for it to absorb enough to put on my primer and foundation! I love the idea of an spf moisturizer, but I really think the consistency needs to be improved! Not sure if I will purchase again.
A Dry Moisturizer, Really?
I was disappointed in this product. It does not go on smoothly, but tends to pull my skin as I try to apply it. It reminded me of years ago before I started using Bare Minerals and applied liquid make-up. I'm mixing it with my Purly Nourishing Moisturizer in order to use it. I'll never buy it again.
Not what I thought this was!!
I have been a BE customer for 8 years and I love the tinted idea to the moisturizer, however there are a few pros and cons;
Extra sun protection
Gives great coverage when used with the foundation
Feels like liquid foundation
Consistency like sunblock
Leaves skin looking shiny
Way too thick compared to other BE moisturizers
Does not leave a refreshing feeling on skin
I have combination skin more towards the oily in the summer and went to an BE btq and the associate had suggested this product and said that it wont break out, and one thing i can say is that I have sensitive skin and this had made me break out like crazy after using it for two weeks, will not buy again. I feel like I have wasted my money. I thought this would be more like the bare vitamins or other refreshing moisturizers from BE.
Best Moisturizer EVER!
I completely disagree with the reviewer below me. I LOVE this moisturizer. It goes on so smooth and melts into my skin. It did not make me break out at all and my skin is super sensitive! I feel completely confident to go out with just this on and no foundation! It's wonderful! The SPF is an extra perk!!!
Not for me
I've been a bare mineral customer for over 4 yrs and use the purely nourishing moisturizer, thought I'd try the advanced protection.
It is hard to apply, you have to work at moving around the face. It sits on the skin and doesn't absorb into, must be the SPF. I use the prime time also and if I don't wait for 5-10 min after the moisturizer I get a clumping effect. After using for 3 weeks I'll use it on my neck area and go back to purely nourishing. Hope you have a better experience
Worst Moisturizer Ever Tried
Does not go on "silky" as the description says. Feels awful as it is applied, tugged at my skin trying to get the tint to blend. After I finally got it on it left my face feeling very tacky and my skin looked shiny which is not helpful considering the hot Texas weather. Just bought this yesterday afternoon and was quite excited to try it this morning, I'm taking it back today!
