7-Day Skin Detox Mineral Brightening Peel
This product exceeded all of my expectations!
I am 24 years old and have been struggling with acne since I was in high school. In the past, products that actually clear my acne and minimize my pores also have caused me to get extreme eczema all over my face - not a pretty site! This is the only product that has successfully improved the look of my skin, without causing irritation.
When I started the detox I noticed the results immediately.
Day 1: My face was so soft I couldn't stop touching it!
Day 2: I noticed that my skin was a much more uniform color (less blotchy redness). Also, many of my coworkers noticed and said my face was "glowing"
Day 3: I did have some tenderness in my face, but I also noticed that my forehead was not getting greasy throughout the day as it had in the past.
Day 4: I made the mistake of forgetting to do the detox at night and did it in the morning. My face was EXTREMELY red for a few hours - it looked as though I had a very bad sunburn. It did fade - but I will say, do it at night when you don't have to worry about showing up to work!
Day 5, 6, 7: By day 5 I could tell my pores were smaller, my skin had less redness and my acne was drying out. But I did not notice a significant change over the last few days.
Day 8: I had finished the detox, the majority of my skin looked great, but my problem areas (my chin and upper cheeks) still had my existing pimples. Going into this, I knew it was not an acne treatment, so I was content with the results, but not overwhelmingly excited.
Today, Day 11: I have gone back to my original routine, but I am happy to say every single one of my pimples has gone away! My skin still has the uniform color, my face seems to be producing less oil throughout the day, and my pores still look small!
I could not be more impressed with this product, the fact that it seems to continue to work days after is fantastic, I would definitely do it again!
Total waste of money
I've always heard great things about Bare Minerals, so when the Ulta people raved over the 7-day detox, I thought it would be great. I have very sensitive skin, to the point where I only use all natural/ organic products. I know a full peel would be too much on my skin, so this seemed like a great alternative. Around day 5, my face was noticeably drier, but zero peeling. I though maybe I would start to see improvements after the "detox" was completed, but no luck. I had zero improvements or changes. It really did not feel any different than using an astringent and then moisturizers. ***buyer BEWARE***.
I could not tell any difference. I was extremely disappointed and the product cost was high. I didn't get any results.
I am 66 years young and worked as a Registered Nurse in the operating room for 40 years.
I have always taken good care of my skin, resulting in both men and women remarking about my completion.
The results of using this product are amazing. I can see why it is recommended using once a month. But, being retired $70 is out of the question on a monthly basis.
Bare Essentials has top of the line packaging for it's product but I feel that the packaging of this products is way beyond what is necessary. I'm sure if the packaging was redesigned there could be a significant reduction in the cost as well as reducing the use of our natural resources. My recommendation would be to delete the slide mechanism and replace with a simple lid.
I did not go into the boutique with the intentions of purchasing this but am I glad that I did! I noticed a difference the next morning after the first application. I finished Day 7 last night. My skin is smoother, looks healthier, and has a nice subtle glow. I also noticed that the dark spots have lightened. Some more than others. My husband said my lines are less noticeable. He was so impressed and actually jealous with the way my skin looks that he wants to try it. I went out and bought him a kit today. I love love love love this product and will be purchasing it again!
7-Day Skin Detox - A Must Buy!
7-Day Skin Detox – Sign me up! I will forever be a regular for the 7-Day Detox Mineral Brightening Peel! I found it so easy to use and I love the cushiony cotton pads for application – they’re so luxuriant. Not only did the peel brighten, even and tone my skin, but something else amazing happened. I had some small scar tissue on my cheek from a blemish. After the treatment it completely disappeared! I’m really very happy about this! And at 7-Day Skin Detox’s price point, it’s like having a professional facial at a lower cost and is much more convenient.
bareMinerals saved my FACE!
I am 31 and I have battled acne for well over the past three years! Finally the last year and a half I went to the dermatologist to try to fight this battle professionally. Well, many bottles and my pocket book emptied by prescription lotions, creams, gels, pills...still no permanent/long lasting results in the end and the acne scars to prove it. My recent visit my doctor had ran out of ideas and now came to his last resort...A*****E! At this visit I reluctantly signed up for A*****E. It's a process for women luckily, we are not able to get on the med right away. You have to be tested twice for pregnancy and sign this A*****E manual/contract. Talk about a scary read, but at this point I am desperate!
After reading the scary manual and all the side effects I decided to take this time to finally try what my doctor had mentioned several times to me. He said I may be allergic to my makeup, so to give bareMinerals a try. He mentioned this every other visit and I am so glad he did!
I took the leap and went in all the way, I only wish I had tried this so much sooner...I bought everything! Skin Care, Treatments, and all the makeup. It's the best money I ever spent! I started with the Youth Revealed 3-piece collection in the AM(even use the Active Cell Renewal Night Serum in the AM) and then PM cleansing with the Purifying Facial Cleanser(included in Youth Revealed), Skip your Active Cell Renewal Night Serum PM during Detox but apply the day assigned of the 7-Day Skin Detox instead USING THE WHOLE VILE(suggested by my bareMinerals beauty consultant), after that dried completely I applied the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer(included in Youth Revealed). I could feel the difference immediately in the texture of my skin, by day 7 I am a full on bareMinerals believer and customer/FAB Friend for LIFE!! After my 7-Day Detox I have added in my regimen in AM and PM the Biolucent and Multi-Wrinkle Repair(one pump each and mixing it together) after the Active cell renewal. In addition in the PM after cleansing I use the Intensive Glow Pads, followed by the rest of my routine. I know it may seem like overkill, but my face has never been this clear and my acne scars are disappearing everyday. My face is so clear I will be doing the 7-Day Skin Detox monthly or every other month which ever I can afford at the time. It's so worth it!
I started my bareMinerals journey Friday, June 20th, 2014 and it hasn't even been a full two weeks! This is only the beginning of my bareMinerals journey, so I can't wait to see what is to come! Thanks to bareMineral's and the great beauty consultants in my local bareMinerals boutique I will not be going on A*****E after all and a big bonus is I love my skin!
Not worth the money
I was really sold on this by the rep at the store but I did not notice a difference at all!
Small difference for the price
Pros: smoother texture, smaller pores, somewhat brighter tone. Cons: mild effect.
I guess I expected more for the price. After the first day, I cut the pads in half and used just half of each day's liquid so that I can do it again and save some $$. Day 4 was a little tingly. No redness or peeling throughout the process. In the past, I have used straight glycolic and lactic acids so I knew what to expect. Disappointed that it was so mild. Probably won't buy again because the price doesn't equal the result for me.
Made such a (short term) difference!
First off, if you're going to buy this, use just half the bottle each time! There is a surprisingly generous amount in there and by doing so it's like it's a half-price detox.
Okay, on to the review! I loved this detox. I did it right after January 1st to sort of start the year with a clean palate. I felt a difference starting with Day 2; every morning when I work up, my skin was softer than it's ever been. By the end of the week I could see that my skin was also brighter. Brighter and softer are good things!
Overall, it was a nice way to give my skin a boost, although I wish it would always be that bright and soft! I will definitely buy it again, but divide up the bottles to get more bang for my buck.
