Purely Nourishing Cream: Dry Skin
Very disappointed in this moisturizer
I started using BE products in August. I've loved everything except this moisturizer. After cleansing with Mineralixirs Facial Cleansing Oil and Biolucent I waited until my face was completely dry before applying this Nourishing Cream—but like others, the moisturizer just sat on my face and eventually balled up and rubbed off. YUCK! When I went back to the boutique where I purchased it the salesperson suggested simply using it after cleansing with the oil. I'm sorry she convinced me to keep it instead of returning it. Now I have a very expensive hand cream. Very disappointed in this moisturizer.
Finally dry skin relief!
I have extremely dry skin and have spent hundreds of dollars trying to find the product that will leave my skin soft and smooth. I tried Purely Nourishing Cream and am totally hooked. No more flakiness after putting on makeup.
Try this moisturizer WITHOUT the cleanser.
This is an oasis for my skin: moisturizes, softens, no smell, feels great and looks lovely on my skin. I do not wear foundation or makeup. Just recently retried this moisturizer. Had used it a while back with the cleanser. The cleanser was so drying that no moisturizer would stand a chance. I have used Lavera, Ilike, Weleda.... each for years... and tried many others.
This is better for me than any of the others. Please don't discontinue this cream.
Effective, great for dry sensitive skin
I used Bare Minerals makeup for years before discovering their skincare line. This is now the only moisturizer I use. My skin has become more sensitive as I've gotten older, but this lotion is perfect for me-hydrating, softening, and non-irritating.
I have quite oily skin, so when I received this as a gift in a shipment, I was reluctant to try it. I ran out of my regular moisturizer, so in a pinch, I decided to give this a shot one night. I am SO glad I did. My skin looked and felt so much better just the next morning. My skin has a habit of loving something for a little while and then breakouts and red blotchy skin starts to show up. So far so good with this. I only use it at night because of the oil my skin produces during the day. I found another sample that I had received in an earlier shipment and I was so happy. Once these little jars run out, I will definitely be ordering more. It's been such a skin saver for me. I'm 45 and have very sensitive skin and have gotten so many compliments since starting to use this. I've decided I'm going to use up the skin products I have and then give other BE skin care products a try. I've been very happy with everything I've tried so far. Thank you for helping to save my skin!
Purely Nourishing Cream: Dry Skin
I have very dry skin. When I put on any make up, the dryness really shows even more.
I purchase this cream and was just using it a night. I really loved the way my skin felt and looked in the morning. It really hydrated my skin. Worked so well that I tried it during the day under my make up. By the end of the day, my face was visibly glowing and looked like I had been in a sauna. I think I will stick to this one for night time only. I am sure one of the other creams BM offers will work fine during the day, but this was a little too oily for day time use for me.
Flaxseed oil caused allergic reaction
First, I love Bare Minerals. This is however, the first time trying the nourishing cream. I was excited because everything else is so wonderful. The first time I put it on it felt wonderful. Very luxurious, creamy and felt great on my skin. I then went to bed and after a few hours my skin started burning and my face was beet red. I did notice that the box said if irritation occurs to stop using. I read the insert and saw that it includes flax seed oil which I know can cause allergic reactions. I never thought it would be used in skincare. I read the ingredients on website and couldn't see where this was listed; maybe there's a more technical term which I wouldn't recognize. I wish it was clearly stated in the ingredients because I would not have bought it if I saw it contained flaxseed. It took a full day for my skin to return to normal and I will return the product.
Good for oily, extremely dry skin
I received a sample of this and am so glad I did. Just sad it's almost gone. I'll be placing my order today! I have very oily t-zone, irritatingly itchy bumps on my forehead, and normal skin on my cheeks. I've been using bare minerals makeup for almost 10 yrs, but have never tried their skin care products. The cleanser I use over dries my skin and my regular moisturizer isn't moisturizing enough and makes my skin more oily as the day goes on. I've been trying the nourishing cream for a couple weeks now and am very impressed. My skin is less itchy, less oily, and skin tone is much more even. It really feels like my skin is healing.
I was so sure that nothing would help my skin. It was flaky and scaly looking and had been for months and nothing else worked, but I saw the reviews for this lotion and was desperate enough to try one more thing and I am so glad I did! It has been only a week since I started using this and my skin looks amazing! Hopefully they will start making one with SPF 30 in it.
Don't Apply Too Much
I used too much at once and it ended up rubbing off like glue. It took a long time to get it off so that I could apply my makeup.
