Purely Nourishing Cream: Dry Skin
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.
The Search Is On
My personal experience with this cream has been a disappointment. I don't have an issue with the texture or the scent. However, when I attempt to rub it into my skin, it ends up curdling into tiny balls. I won't be buying this product again.
Good bye dry skin!
I started using this Bareminerals after my skin became allergic to my old make up and face cream. I had dry patches,redness,and my skin started to break. I tried all kinds of different products. When I learned Bareminerals had a cream for dry skin I decided to try it. I truly believe this cream saved my skin. About a week my all my dryness went away and my redness cleared up. I have not had this problem since using this cream. I will not dare go back to using anything else.
I have tried several homemade natural dry skin moisturizers and even added them to any moisturizer i was using to help aid the feeling of dry stretched out and itchy skin.. Nothing was working so I reluctantly tried this product suggested by a youtube guru whose most videos are BM product reviews and makeup looks..
I AM IN LOVE!! This moisturizer Is incredible WORTH every penny of the cost!!
My only REGRET about purchasing this Product.. NOT PURCHASING IT SOONER!!!
A literal life saver for my face!
I'm in my late 40's. In the past 6 months I have developed blotchy, dry, red, flakey, and tight facial skin. This moisturizer soothes my skin and makes all of these extreme dry patches disappear and leaves my skin dewy and healthy looking. I'm completely amazed and I am so thankful for this moisturizer, I don't know what I would do without it. Although, I have to use the bare Minerals moisturizer for "normal to dry" skin on the bridge of my nose area instead of the strictly "dry" skin formula in order to prevent the tip of my nose from becoming to shinny. I don't use any cream at all on the very tip of my nose. Also, neither of these creams cause breakouts on my skin! I've tried so many different brands of moisturizers in the past, only to be let down by them all except for bare Minerals moisturizing creams. Thank you bare Minerals for your exceptional products!
Great for "Senior" Skin
I'm 70 and have verrrrry dry, sensitive skin. This cream works wonders for me. During the summer, I use at night & use a lotion in the day. When cold, dry winter comes around, I use it in the daytime too. The key is to massage it in well (that feels good anyway) and let it dry for a bit. I put it on, brush my teeth, fix my hair (about 3 minutes), and then do makeup. I never have problems with a greasy feeling or finish. It is a less-than-lovely color, but I don't need it for color. It's also not one of those perfumy smells, but that's what you get with a product that doesn't have lots of added ingredients. My test is how my skin feels when I wake up in the morning. With this cream, it's not taunt and itchy, its usual condition. While it's not cheap, it is more cost effective than the drug-store brand I used before BE.
A must have for dry skin
I got this product awhile back and love it. I have really dry skin especially around my nose with a lot of redness. After just using it a couple of times my face is not dry and flaky anymore and the redness has went away. This is a great product and I am so happy to have found it. I have tried many other products and never got the results I had needed. My makeup goes on so much smoother and evenly. This product is a defiant must have.
Great for dry skin!
I have acne prone skin and use products such as Retin A that really dry out your skin. I use this product only at night and I've seen a huge difference. My skin is not flakey anymore and it hasn't made me break out more than I usually do. I highly recommend it. And, a little goes a long way so it tends to last for a long time.
I received this as part of a kit from one of the Beauty Rush deals, and I am so glad I did! I don't think I would have bought it if I purchased it separately, but this cream is fantastic. It is the best working moisturizer that I've found that I'm not worried about my pores clogging and breaking out because of it. The skin under my eyes usually becomes dry and flaky when the first harsh days of winter hit, but not this year! Also, like all the great moisturizers, a little goes a long way so it should last quite a while.
The best cream ever!
I've never written a review in my life but I had to about this cream. I've searched high and low for a moisturizer that actually does what it says it does, and this cream is it!!! It really does hydrate and plump my skin. The fine lines are less noticeable and my face is definitely firmer! I will never buy another product ever again. I refuse to live without this!
I've loved other Bare Escentuals products before, like the lipsticks and liners but my fave colors have been discontinued 3 times!
So please Leslie, don't change a thing with this cream, I will not survive! <3
Purely Nourishing Cream: Dry Skin
I have combination skin, but I love thick moisturizers, especially at night; it helps keep in all the moisture. I absolutely love this cream because it is so thick and nourishing. I only use it at night (so that my face doesn't get so oily during the day - especially in the heat I live in!) but it helps me monitor the drying of my skin. I know it will come in very handy when winter comes! Great product if you're looking for a thick moisturizer.
Great for extra boost of moisture!
I was a little scared to try this one since there are a few reviews that say it starts pealing, and I did have a little trouble with that as well. I get dry patches so to avoid the pealing troubles I mostly use it at night as the last thing I put on. However I figured out a way to avoid the pealing, here's what I do... First I use the regular moisturizer all over and then I use this in a smaller amount and pat it on to the areas that need extra moisture treatment. I pat similar to how you would apply eye cream, instead of rubbing it in. When I do this I don't get any pealing. So I hope this tip helps someone else who wants to use this but was scared of the pealing! LOL
Calming & Soothing
The Purely Nourishing Cream calms and sooths irritated psoriasis facial skin. Bare Escentuals is the only company which has a face cream (and makeup) that does not irritate my skin and actually helps calm the irritation and covers the redness. I have tried the most expensive PH ballanced products and always come back to Bare Escentuals.
A drink for your face!
I've been looking for a face cream for quite some time that would keep up with winter weather. This face cream is perfect. It goes on smoothly and doesn't feel greasy. My face feels hydrated all day long and never gets flaky anymore. The scent isn't fantastic, but it's light, so it's not overpowering at all.
Perfect Night Cream
I use this once a day at night after my usual face washing. It leaves my skin nice and soft. I had a real problem with dry skin but not anymore!
No more flakey, dry winter skin!
I have two other Bare Minerals moisturizers that I use during other times of the year but needed more for my dry, flakey winter skin. I drink a lot of water but had resorted to not washing my face at night ( if I didn't have make up on) in an attempt to keep my face from drying out from just the warm water. Found this product and after only a day or two noticed a remarkable difference. No break outs or greasiness either.
I needed extra hydration this winter. I don't have dry skin, I have combination, but because of central heating units at home and work, I needed more than my regular mosturizer so I added this cream at night. I has helped so much and it isn't greasy at all. It just makes my face soft and supple.
Good for not-so-dry skin too!
I have normal skin that leans tward the dry end. I feel that this mousitrizer is too thick and heavy to use under my make so I use it only at night and durring the day I use a lighter moisturizer with SPF. This helps keep my slightly dry skin smooth and soft. Also, because I only use it once a day, it lasts twice as long. On days that my face has dry patches I will rub a tiny bit of this into them for the extra moisture.
Worse stuff I have ever used
I have very dry skin, unfortunately the buffing of my favorite foundation makes the situation worse. I had such high hopes for this cream. Very disappointed! First off, the smell is just nasty. Smells literally like dirt. The cream just sits on the skin and doesn't absorb, eventually it flakes off in little balls, leaving an oily residue on top of the skin but face still feels dry.
OK, so I'm sure you can relate to this:
Remember that really bad cold? The one where the skin around your nose is all red and raw from blowing your nose too much? I'm sure everyone can relate to that. I have tried many lotions on the skin around my nose when I've had colds and even my sensitive skin lotions would sting because of how raw my skin was! Not only does it go on raw dry skin without the stinging and burning, but it actually does its job! It really does hydrate and repair the raw/dry skin, but it also stays on! Even if you blow your nose a lot, you still have a very thin layer of this cream on your skin. I swear by this when I have a cold! It's the only thing I use to prevent my skin from getting raw. The lotion tissues are just not enough when you have a really bad cold!
Great for dry skin!
I have been using this moisturizer for about 2 months now and I LOVE it! Combined with the Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser and the Renew & Hydrate Eye Cream and all three work wonderfully with each other!! Don't let your skin suffer...
I put off trying this moisturizing cream for dry skin because so many reviewers said it was heavy. Finally, I broke down when it was on sale and purchased it. I do not know why I waited. I LOVE IT. My skin is dry, and this cream is so moisturizing. I do not have any flaky skin now. If you have dry skin, try it. It is an excellent cream. I am using only Bare Escentuals skin care products because I've had allergic reactions to so many other products. My dermatologist wanted to run skin tests on me for skincare products, but I decided to convert to BE completely first. I'm so glad I did; I have not had any allergic reactions since I started using all BE products. Thank you Leslie!!!!
Horrible on my Face!
I was excited to get this prouduct...hoping it could help my dryish skin. The first time I used it my face began to sting/burn within minutes. I rubbed my face and tiny rolls of skin began to rub off, or so I thought. I realized that it was actually the cream. Gross. I've tried using it a few more times and still the same results. I later reviewed all the reviews of this cream and no one else seemed to have this experience....I do not have sensitive skin so all I know is I want my money back!
When I started using this product about 6 months ago, I had severly dry skin. Dry flaky patches and my makeup sat in a way that made it look cakey. After using this for about 2 months, I no longer have dry skin, my skin looks dewy and fresh and I have switched to the MATTE foundation. This product is a miracle worker, it actually changed my skin.
