Not so hot
I brought this because of the awesome reviews. I was so excited and anticipated real results. The product does indeed dry out the face which I know is good for acne but it didn't prevent or even really speed up recovery of acne. Use at your own risk.
I bought this after i read about it and the reviews. It didn't help what so ever. I would get blemishes and try to treat them before with this product and it didnt do anything to prevent it.
I love this product, I wish it came in a huge container!!! I have rosacea and it helps alot!!!
I agree with the others....I love this product and use it on a regular basis, day and night. The container is WAY too small which means I have to order it almost monthly and it is way, way, way too expensive for what you're getting. Leslie, if you really care what your customers think you will bring back the larger container at a discount.
This is the best acne product I have ever used!
I have bought this a few times and I love it! I think it is the best acne product I have ever used, and I have used a lot! I use it mostly at night and when needed in the morning for a blemish that pops up unexpectedly. I would recommend it to anyone! Thanks BE!
Thank You Bare Minerals!
This product is amazing! I've been fighting my newly received "20's" acne, and seriously just wanted to throw in the towel I was so tired of losing. Then my friend recommended BareMinerals, and so I tried it out. This whole makeup line is wonderful, but I am so impressed by the Blemish Therapy! I haven't had a single breakout since I started using it! I am so thrilled and thankful to BareMinerals for giving me back my clear skin. I highly recommended this to anyone who has troublesome acne, or just the occasional breakout.
I really wanted to love this......
I am apparently in the minority, but I was very disappointed in this product. I use Proactive, but sometimes need a little help, so I thought this would be great. I've used it for about three weeks now and have noticed absolutely no difference in the spots where I used it.
I absolutely love the other Bare Minerals products I have, so this must just be the one thing that doesn't work for me. Oh well.
What's the purpose!
I purchased this when I was having a breakout. I read the instruction and applied as directed. I seen no difference in the look of my breakout. I've tried a whole lot of BE products, but this is one of the worst products I've tried. It may be more useful if it was a creamer form.
NEED BIGGER CONTAINER!!!! PLEASE!
I USE THIS EVERYDAY OF MY LIFE. I GET ALOT OF TREATMENTS DONE ON MY FACE FROM THE LASER AND IT CAN CAUSE BREAKOUTS AND OTHER ISSUES. THIS INCREASES MY USE IN THE PRODUCT. SOMETIMES I GO THROUGH IT IN ONE WEEK IF IM HAVING A BAD BREAKOUT! WE NEED THIS IN A BIGGER CONTAINER. ITS TOO EXPENSIVE FOR THE VERY SMALL AMOUNT YOUR GETTING!!! $18! WHEN THINGS ARE GOING GOOD FOR ME, I USE ONE PER MONTH! ALOT OF MONEY OVER THE YRS! BRING BACK THE BIGGER CONTAINER PLEASE! THIS IS KILLING ME! PLEASE LESLIE, LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS ABOUT THIS ONE. GREAT PRODUCT BUT WAY TOO EXPENSIVE FOR LITTLE CONTAINER!
Where has this product been all my life?
School would have been so much better had I been able to use this back in the day of breakouts on a normal basis... I am amazed... at night if i feel something popping up all I do is spot it with just a little of this.. next morning No sign of it whatsoever... and during the day it keeps zits at bay, I love this!
I use this product before I put on make up and after I wash my face at night. I LOVE this product. I have "difficult" acne and this product actually clears the acne up. It even works on the acne on my back. Can't believe I have lived without it.
It Really Works!!
I have been wanting to try this product ever since switching to Bare Minerals facial cleanser and lotion. I struggle with frequent breakouts and was able to get most of it under control with the facial products. Every once in a while however, I will find myself with a large blemish or a small area on my face that breaks out. This product is great for both of those reasons. Not only can you use it "on the spot", you can also put a thin layer over problems areas to help prevent the breakout from occurring. The second best thing about this product is that it not only heals but conceals as well. I can wear it alone and get great blemish coverage or with my foundation which makes it nearly impossible to notice any blemishes. I would highly recommend this product and I am so glad that I tried it!
Yes this product is small but it doesnt take much to cover problem spots. Ill admit the smell is a little bit funky but honestly you only smell it when you apply it and i think it smells like a type of herb i use when i make homemade pizza sause (tho i cant remember the name at the moment)
the only problem i have with it is that i have bumps beside my nose that ive had for months that wont go away. i was hoping this would help but it didnt. it did however fix my chin in about a day (which ive been trying to fix for a few weeks now)
the second i run out of this stuff i will def be buying some more
This product has no doubt helped me with my acne and I hope it will continue to help with reducing and controlling it. Though by reading some reviews, I can say, I'm here to testify that this wasn't exactly a miracle overnight product for me. Actually, I think my skin actaully got worse before it got better, but that's, odly enough, a good thing to look for in a product for your skin. As I've said, I am very happy with this buy and the redness was decreased dramatically over the first week while wearing it, and I found myself able to extract stuff from more of the bigger cysists and pimples on my chin, which released alot of pressure. Thanks for changing my life, one grain of powder at a time :)
This absolutely works!!
This product is so amazing.... I usually break out maybe a couple times a month and as soon as I feel one coming on, I dab this on the spot. If I wake up feeling that I'm getting a pimple, I put it on under my makeup and then again before bed. This usually prevents It from actually even turning into a full on pimple.
This product is especially good when used before the blemish gets too large or the skin is broken on it. Just a little dab on the inflamed area for a few days and it disappears. Love it!
I have tried everything out there to get rid of my acne. Proactiv, over the coutner and prescription products, and nothing has ever worked like this! I use it with the exfoliating treatment cleanser and pure transformation night treatment and my skin looks great! No need for moisturizer or concealer after 4 weeks. Awesome product!
great acne treatment for pregnant women
I used this product while I was pregnant with my daughter. I have oily skin and tend to break out a lot. Most acne treatments contain salicylic acid which isn't safe to use during pregnancy. Sulfur acne treatments are considered safe so I was happy to find a product I could use for my acne during my pregnancy. Works great, can be worn easily under makeup. What a life saver!
Very pleased with this product!
I really love this product. I'm somewhat new to Bare Escentuals and so pleased with this product. I can apply it to a blemish and it'll be gone the next day! Only gave 4 stars because the size of the container is very small. Granted, it's just one blemish at a time, but I think a little more would be better. Just my 2 cents! I have gotten 2 people to purchase and they're also very pleased from what I'm told.
The best thing ever!!
I absolutely love love love!!! This product is crazy good. One day you get a blemish and the next day its gone. Can't find anything wrong with it. It's a must buy.
Great healer for blemishes
Great concealer for raised pimples
And overall great treatment
I received this product and use it on the rare breakout that I may have and it really worked, so I got it for my daughter who also uses it. I tried it on an emerging fever blister/canker sore on the edge of my lip and this is the first product to stop the blister from forming. I can actually go out in public the days following the start of one of these annoying blisters because they don't fully develop!
Great product, poor size
I love this product and have used it for years. Over the years, however, the size has gone down and the price has gone up. The first one I got lasted me probably about a year and was at least twice the size as they currently offer. The last one I got lasted me a few months. I must say I'm disappointed that they only offer this small size now - especially since I still have the container for the first one I ever got (i reuse them as containers for random things instead of throwing them away) and it was about the size of the regular foundation they sell now. Why not give us bigger options??
Im loving this product
I don't usually write reviews, but I had to get on here today and write one for this product. I am a newer customer of BE products and am working on my supply. I received this product yesterday and decided that I would use it last night before going to bed just to test it out. I have very problem skin; cystic acne to be exact and have used anything and everything from Proactive Solution to antibiotics. I even use sulfur-based products but I have to say, the reviews on here are dead on. I woke this morning with blemishes still, however, they we less noticeable and smaller than last night and I was actually able to cover them today with my usual product. This was not the case yesterday! I don't know what all is in this product, but it really works and I would recommend it for anyone with problem skin that needs that extra push during the day and at night for healing. One thing to mention is that I have extremely sensitive skin and I experienced no redness or irritation what so ever. Don't hesitate to try this product; it really does work.
I have really bad skin this product heals the pimples, conceals, and moisturizer at the same time!!! Best product ever!
Keeps Blemishes at Bay
This product is wonderful, as are all BM products! I tend to break out if I stress too much or forget to wash my makeup off a few nights in a row. With the Blemish Therapy, I can keep blemishes under control at any time! I apply this under my foundation and as the last step in my nighttime routine, and it works great at keeping pimples from popping up in the most unwanted places. The key is being consistent with this product - however, if I use it too much, too often in one area, it can dry out my skin. When this happens, I wait one or two days before applying it again and it's back to working perfectly!
This stuff is amazing
I will never ever be caught with out this product. I had the biggest, red, sore pimple on my nose and used this under my foundation then again at night before bed and it is gone. I just can not believe how well this works. It is amazing. Love, love and love it! I really have very few breakouts but this just zaps any I do have. Dries them right up and takes the soreness out.
I've been using this for years in the am under my foundation and as my last step in my night time regime. Today I tried mixing it in with my moisturizer so I can get the benefits all over my face. I love how gentle it is yet it is very effective.
Nothing ever works for me....
I went to the BE boutique near my home in New York. I had a fairly large pimple in the crease of my nose and cheek. The sales associate put the blemish therapy on me and said I would see a huge difference in the morning. I thought to myself "Yeah right!" Well... I woke up the next morning and the pimple was BARELY noticeable. And there was NO redness what so ever. I couldn't believe it. I went back that day and bought the product. As always I am so pleased with BE!!
Pretty freakin' amazing!
I just received my order, which included this. I used it at night & by morning, the blemish was GONE! It stinks to high heaven, but this stuff really works! You can also use it BEFORE applying your foundation, which is very cool. I'm sold.
Like many people who have reviewed here, I had tried countless acne treatments in the past and few of them ever showed any real results. Last week a terrible scattering of pimples popped up on my forehead. I bought the acne treatment from Bare Escentuals not expecting much. The product came in yesterday, I applied it last night, and when I woke up this morning I couldn't believe it--the pimples on my forehead are almost completely gone!! I could not believe how fast this product works! I would highly recommend this to anyone. The best thing is that since it is a powder you don't have to worry about it drying your skin out. It's wonderful!!! :)
