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.
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!!!!
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! :)
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.
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. :(
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.
After my roommate started using Blemish Therapy I decided to give it a try as well.
I believe it helps minimize my breakouts. I have been using it every morning and night as directed for the last few weeks and it definitely made a difference.
I don't think I've had as much luck as most other people using it on current acne, but it does help it go away faster than it did on its own.
My reason for knocking a star off of this, though, is because it is advertised to "Heal and Conceal". I do not have good luck with it concealing. If the zit is already almost gone, it does cover up that last bit of redness, but I usually have to use a regular concealer over the top.
I still love this product, but I am a little disappointed that it didn't quite work on me the way it was advertised.
Prepare to be Wowed!
I absolutely love this product! I have tried many acne products including Proactive and this works better bar none. I gave it a 4 because it has a funky smell that took some getting used to - not bad enough to discontinue using the product though.
I don't break out often, but I really like using this when I do. I can nip a breakout in the bud and cover it at the same time. It really works and doesn't irritate my skin like drugstore acne products do.
I purchased the Blemish Therapy and I fell in LOVE with it. The 1st night I used it I woke up in the morning and it worked wonders!! I highly recommend this product. I have very little blemishes so it took it away over night.
