Blemish Therapy 4.2 5 159 159
LOVE This Product I have had acne since my early teens and have used almost every product out there to treat it including Neutrogena, Clinique, Biore and even ProActive. Nothing helped and usually made my acne worse. This is the first product to genuinely work for me. I have sensitive skin that is oily but drys out easily especially while using other products. I use this both morning and night and not only does it control my acne but it clears it up and improves my skin. My skin has honestly never looked better! I highly recommend this product as a little goes a very long way. I use this along with the deep cleansing wash and I'm so happy with the results. 09/27/2012
Sort of works I bought this product wanting something new to try on my acne. It does dry out the area but be careful with how much you put on. I put some on my chest and it started to burn and itch like crazy. I have seen some improvement but not much. I don't think that I will buy this again but use up what I have. 03/13/2014
Great Stuff! I received this product in a trial size, I was skeptical at first as to how it was going to work, but I started using it and I can't complain. I don't always get blemishes, but when I do this is the first thing I grab. It works well and I notice within a couple of days the blemish(es) start to disappear. 02/19/2014
So far... AWESOME I purchased blemish therapy 6 hours ago- I made the mistake of purchasing cheap make up as a quick fix one day, and it caused break outs all over my face and neck. I purchased this, really on a whim, as nothing ever works for me, but I'm always open to trying new things to see if they happen to be "the one". And this is "the one", I think! All of my break-outs are MUCH smaller and are hardly able to be seen now! I'm shocked! I've had acne since I was a teenager, and it got better in the last couple of years, but when I do something stupid, I pay for it. And prescriptions, clinique, proactive, neutrogena, etc don't work for me... And my face is pretty sensitive to potentially harsh washes and treatments. The one thing about it, though, is there is a pretty distinct tea tree oil scent, so if you're not used to that, it might irritate you a bit. I noticed others have commented that the coverage isn't that great- I was actually quite pleased with the concealment of this product, but still used the BM concealer under my BM foundation just as an added coverage. The only reason I gave 4 stars, is because this is only the first day I've used it- but loved it so much, I had to at least give a review, in case others were debating on purchasing :) 02/18/2014
Blemish Treatment Very happy with this product, I've been using it for about 2 weeks and overall I think it's worked better than most other treatments I've tried for moderate acne. 01/16/2014
Amazing product!!!! I used to have acne back when I was younger, and I'm 26 now and get maybe one or two pimples every now and then. I've tried so many spot treatments, over the counter and prescribed stuff. I walked into the Bare Minerals store and saw this product, I actually had a wedding to go to the next day and had a nice size pimple on my chin, so I purchased this and decided to give it a try. I must say this stuff is amazing!!!! Completely made it shrink in a day and by the second day it was completely gone, without me having to pop it. Even if I feel it coming on I put it on and it's gone! I've told all my friends and family and swear by this stuff. I no longer use Benzol or Acid products on my face. I even put it on my cheeks and it's drastically reduced my pore size within about two weeks. Seriously worth $18 bucks!!! This stuff is amazing and I take it with me everywhere, especially when I travel and get to a new locations, sometimes the water to wash your face, or even the travel can stress you out and cause a pimple or two, we'll this stuff allows me to stay completely clear!!!! 01/02/2014
My new must have!! I love this item!! I had heard about Bare Minerals products before but have only recently started using them. While in the boutique, the representative told me about this product. She said that her supervisor had applied it at the beginning of her work shift and by the end it had improved. So I decided to try it as I had some sort breakout on my eyelid which had been stubborn for a week without improvement and was irritating. I couldn't conceal it very well and I had a wedding the next day. I applied it that evening and before bedtime. By the next morning, it had improved dramatically and was barely noticeable. I went to the wedding a happy girl. It has worked multiple times for other "Mount Vesuvius-es" that have erupted on my face in like 1-2 days. I was told to wear this over my foundation but it noticeable and does not conceal. So I might wear it under foundation or rub it in. I carry it my purse to zap breakouts as they come. I love it and will never be without it! :) 11/23/2013
Blemish Therapy I don't usually break out too often, mainly during that "favorite" time of month, but when I do there will be multiple ones, especially on my chin. I bought this so that it would help clear up my skin when I did break out. The product has helped clear my face up more quickly than before I started using it. Some of my smaller blemishes disappeared almost overnight! I am not sure how well it is preventing blemishes, though. The smell is strong, especially if you have blemishes around your nose, but it is due to the "natural sulfur" present (that helps to dry out the blemishes). However, it is not enough for me to stop using it! Also, because it is a light-colored powder, it doesn't really "conceal" (as advertised) with my medium skin tone, so I use it in conjunction with concealer. Also, the more you put on, the lighter it looks. Because of that, I usually put on a little before my concealer/foundation in the morning, and a lot more at night. 10/21/2013
really disappointed i bought this a couple weeks ago and started using it. i dont have a big acne problem but i do break out occasionally. I started using this on some of my problem areas and was completely disappointed :( it actually made me break out worse, and it was litterally over night! i love bare minerals to death and only use your make up and face wash so i was really bummed i had this bad of an experiance with this product. i understand everyones skin is different so in no way am i saying its a horrible product, its just horrible for my skin. :( 09/25/2013
Use it every night I use this as a preventative product in the areas I'm prone to break outs. I also use it when I have a pimple and it gets rid of it fast. My only issue is with the smell, it's kind of like menthol, but if it helps it work then that's fine. 09/15/2013

This will work for darker tones. I have a Golden Dark skin tone and I have used another product that comes up light such as the Pure Transformation Night Treatment in Tan which is advertised to help for those with Tan to darker skin tones. It's to be used at night and doesn't come off on the pillow. This Blemish Therapy I would use at night so that the treatment can work at its best. Get used to sleeping on your back so that your skin can breathe and allow the blemish therapy to work on your face.

Details: 
There have been a lot of questions about whether to use the blemish therapy before or after using moisturizer, and the consensus seems to be after, but i wanted to confirm with someone whether or not this also applied when using foundation primer. so if you used all three it would be moisturizer first, then primer, then blemish therapy? Will the blemish therapy be able to penetrate through the primer? thanks!

I use it after the moisturizer. I have heard that after you clean your face its important to replenish then treat. I don't use it during the day even though it actually matches my skin tone, only at night with a clean face. I feel like its just going to get spread around with all the product and defeat its spot-treatment effectiveness.

When I had a BE representative first makeunder my face, she put on the moisturizer, primer, and then blemish therapy. I then put my foundation and everything else on. Had pretty bad breakouts on my chin, and now with the blemish therapy I have no more breakouts, only had to cover the scars. So it must work through the moisturizer and primer just fine. Hope this helps!

When I went to the Bare Minerals store in the mall and had them do my make-up for me, they first used the moisturizer, then the primer, then applied the blemish therapy and additiotnal makeup afterwards. So, I'd say go ahead and try after but if you spot getting results or if you start getting a break-out, to stop and go back to your original routine. Hope that helped :)

A: 
This is specifically for blemishes which are raised, red bumps on the skin. You don't want to use this as concealer because it's not designed to conceal, but to remedy outbreaks or keep an outbreak from spreading by nipping it in the bud while it's a fresh blemish. Use the powder bisques to conceal. There's also the lightweight, cream READY Concealer, but it's so creamy to were I tried for months to blend it out and use less versus more and I gave it to my sister after trying so long to give it a chance. It looked too noticeable on my skin. Either I had the wrong shade or what I don't know...but my Dark Bisque (I'm Golden Dark) worked best for me. It blended out better and was evenly laid out.

If you are very careful and dont put it so close that it can get in your eyes then it would be a great concealer. The problem with that is, if you rub your eyes sometime during the day you risk getting it in your eyes. Probably not the best idea.

A: 
The Blemish Therapy contains sulfur, which you DO NOT want to get in your eyes. It will burn like crazy, and the skin around your eyes may react to product even if none of the power actually gets in your eyes (because the skin around your eyes is more delicate and sensitive than the rest of your face).

I would recommend dabbing the original Prime Time Eye Primer under the eye to help hide dark circles, followed by a little Well Rested applied with a Blending Brush or a Concealer Brush. You can also use your foundation over the Prime Time Eye Primer, just make sure you apply it with a concealer brush for maximum control and coverage. Hope that helps...

You can use it as a concealer, however due to new packaging, I would be wary of buying this product. It comes out way too thick and you won't be happy with how the concealer looks on your face. Should they resume the old packaging, I would say YES - definitely use this, as it works beautifully.

Clean your face first. Then moisturize. Next, prime your face. After that, spot treat your blemish areas. From here, conceal your problem areas (other than your blemished areas because they have been treated with the blemish therapy powder), then do your foundation, blush, eyes, and lips.

A: 
Skin Rev-er Upper always goes on after cleansing but before you moisturize. I usually only use this in the morning though. As for the Blemish Therapy, you would apply that AFTER your moisturizer, but let the moisturizer soak into your skin for a few minutes so that when you put on the Blemish Therapy, it won't cake or clump.

A good rule of thumb is that anything that is powder based should go on AFTER a cream or liquid based product. The reason being that once you apply a powder based product, any creams, liquids, or serums that you apply after the powder will spread the powdered product all over your face, so you lose the concentrated benefits of the Blemish Therapy.

The brush is helpful for the application process so you may want to have the brush to go with it. The brush alone is probably worth more than the product and brush sold together. I would keep the brush for travel purposes or as a backup concealer brush aside from the Max Coverage Concealer Brush.
