Purely Nourishing Cream: Dry Skin
Gave Me Back Hope For My Skin
I've always had dry/oily skin and used a face moisturizer by Olay for years. I used to have to put it on several times in certain problem areas like my nose and chin (sometimes 7 or 8 times) before I could put on my Bare Minerals foundation, or else my makeup flaked and my skin overall looked terrible. Finally fed up, I purchased this cream and the very first time I tried it, I was in love. After years of frustration, I was able to apply a small amount of moisturizer to my face ONE TIME and then put on my foundation with absolutely no problems. I was amazed. I used to think my skin was just in horrible condition, but I realized that my skin really wasn't THAT bad... I just needed the right moisturizer. The only thing I disliked about this product was that it sweat off very easily. Whether I'm blowing my hair dry or spending time outside when it's hot/humid, my face quickly gets very slick and shiny with this lotion. The price is also a slight turn-off - $28 for 1.7 oz. I must admit that after finishing one container, I bought a different moisturizer that was much more economical. Although it does not feel quite as smooth on my skin after application as the Bare Escentuals one did, my Bare Minerals makeup goes on just as smoothly, I only have to apply the cream one time (so I'm just as satisfied with the results as this much more expensive brand), and it doesn't sweat off as easily. Perhaps it's just my skin and on someone else it will stay in place longer, and if you don't mind forking over the money for such a tiny amount of cream, I definately recommend this product. It gave me so much more confidence in my skin - the only reason I switched was because I couldn't stomach paying the price and having it sweat off my face too easily when I could buy another, MUCH cheaper product that worked just as well and stayed on longer. That's the only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5, because it's still an amazing product.
This is my favorite moisturizer. I use it every day in my T-zone because I have dry issues there, but I also use it all over if I've been out in the sun that day. I even got my husband to use it recently due to his sunburn and now he's hooked :-)
honestly i thought this would be perfect for my dry skin, upon reading other reviews i thought i would love it. i have been using this product for acouple of weeks now and i am definetly not pleased it leaves behing a very nasty residue. i dont know why or if it is normal. but i was expecting way more from this product.
I received a sample of this moisturizer with an order; it is without a doubt, the best moisturizer I have ever used. I am 70 so you can imagine how many I have tried over the years. The smell is nice and with oily skin, I don't find it to be too thick or sticky feeling. I use your primer and foundation and my skin looks great! Keep the great products coming.
The perfect cream
I have very dry skin that tend to get irritated from almost all creams and lotions I have every tried. This resulting in a lot of ugly blemishes. I used this cream for 2 days and then everything was gone.
The only bad thing is that Bare minerals do not ship to Europe and does not accept European VISA's. Making it hard and very expensive to get hold of.
This product is ok. It did what it said it would. yippie!
I've been using this for about 4 months now. The true test was when I went to visit family in Hawaii. I usually have to change moisturizer because the one I use in CA is way to emollient in Maui. This moisturizer is absolutely PERFECT for humid Maui weather AND California weather!!!
I must add too...that I am just about to turn 39 and everyone thinks I'm in my early 20's! Thank you for keeping my skin looking great!
Great for Winter Use
I wouldn't describe myself as someone who has dry skin though the winter can sometimes dry my skin out-I used this during the winter and it really helped with my skin. It doesn't ever look oily or greasy and goes on really smooth. It is quick thick though, so if you don't like thick creams, then this might not be for you.
Just bought this last week and it's amazing! I've had problems finding moisturizers that keep my dry skin at bay without feeling really heavy on my face and causing pimples to pop up on my cheeks and forehead. This feels great going on and doesn't make me feel like I'm wearing an oil slick on my face. I haven't broken out once! Thank you for making such a great product! I'm never going to use anything else!
Wonderful life saver
I have very dry skin and I have tryed just about everything and nothing gives me the silky, smooth feeling as the purely Nourishing Cream. This is definatly something that you dhould try if you are part of the dry skin group. You will be happy and see a very big difference.
I have never had a problem with dry skin untill this past winter. My face was so dry, red, flakey, and painfull. I couldn't find any lotion that worked. I was desperate for moisture so I ended up using shea butter body cream..ugh. It wasn't helping one bit.
I ended up going into our new BE store and was giving a sample of this cream-what a miracle worker! As soon as I applied it my skin felt relief and I felt and noticed a HUGE differance! My skin feels so soft and looks young again! It has even reduced the lines on my neck!
I would love to see this cream in a larger tub for body use as well! I always buy at least 2 tubs-one for home and one for work!
I LOVE THIS CREAM!
I bought this moisturizer when it first came out was and was thrilled to get it. First of all, I just knew it would be great, cause everything in the Bare Minerals skin care line is great. I've been using their skin care since they first introduced it. I like the moisturizer for combination skin and would have been happy to stay with that alone, but when I saw the dry skin formula make its appearance I jumped for it. It is wonderful. All I can say is GET THIS CREAM NOW. You will not be sorry. Thanks you Leslie for coming up with this product. It's truly the best moisturizer I've ever tried, and that's saying something.
since im from a place thats cold most of the year, my skin gets extemely dry. other moisterizers would make me break out. This doesnt make me break out and gives me the moister i need so my skin doesnt flake or peal i apsolutely love it!
Actually, this is more of a suggestion. This stuff works so incredibly well, not only on my neck, but also on my fingers when I'm applying it--will you please make a handcream that works as well as this, but maybe not so expensive? A tiny amount of this returns my water-dried hands back to softness again. Fabulous cream.
What a difference!
I had purchased the 30 day sampler on QVC, the trio with the cleanser, moisturizer and firming neck cream. I ran out of the moisturizer. I was out for a while. I noticed the difference in my skin. I started to feel tight, flaky and dry and at times, it itched. I have since re-ordered the nourishing cream and I will definitely not ever be without. It keeps my skin, hydrated, young looking. I'm 41. I hide my age well and with bareMinerals, they help me keep my youthful look.
Smoothest Skin Ever
I tried this in the 30-day trial kit with the facial cleanser (which I also recommend!), because I had gotten the combination skin moisturizer and didn't feel it was keeping my skin hydrated. I consider myself to have combination skin, oily in the t-zone and occasionally dry in the cheeks, but the other moisturizer left my skin just dry enough that my skin produced more oil to make up for it. But this moisturizer is the magic balance for me. It keeps my skin plump and dewy all day long. My skin is extremely smooth to the touch and even after brief use I noticed redness left by acne scars on my face becoming less noticable. It makes my skin look healthy, not oily, not dry, not greasy, just healthy and smooth. I'm totally sold. I will definitely be repurchasing and I absolutely recommend if you have dry skin or if the combination moisturizer just wasn't cutting it for you.
Loving the New Skincare Line...Oh YES!
It has been 2 weeks, & I love this moisturizer. I have used many moisturizers as I have dry skin. My face is hydrated, softer & fresher looking than it has ever looked. It gives my face a glow. I feel as though my face looks younger & brighter. I am so very happy with the new skincare line.
Best Moisturizer For Dry Skin!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well Bare Minerals you knocked the ball out of the park with this one. I have mature, olive skin that is very dry year round. My skin loves the hydration that I get from this and the clean and natural smell. Currently using it as my night treatment, but from the results I've seen using this on my very dry skin, it may become my am/pm treatment. Please offer auto delivery on the Q...didn't want to run out so I ordered two, which was pricey for the economy today. Hopefully this will catch on and we'll see more from you Leslie, for dry skin. As always, you've developed just what we needed for healthy skin.
Perfection in a moisterizer!
Overheard in our bathroom tonight while going through nightly routine:
(Hubby... who is applying PN Dry skin cream,) "Honey!..... This stuff is pure magic!!"
(Me) "I know love...I couldn't agree more!"
It honestly provides beautifully luminous, balanced skin FAST. We're believers!!!
I've been looking for a hydrating moisturizer for quite some time. Many feel good when I put them on, but then that feeling goes away. This is a great moisturizer. Put it on and the moisture rich feeling stays. This is now a moisurizer that I don't ever want to be without. My skin looks and feels softer, even those little lines are softer - and this after only two weeks. I use morning and night -- it gives me that youthful dewey glow under the BE makeup.
I actually have combination skin that is USUALLY oily in the T zone and pretty normal everywhere else. But I do get the occasional dry, rough patch. I use this as a spot treatment for those occasional dry patches along with the Combination Skin Formula and it works GREAT!
I love this without a doubt. I have combination skin but use this anyway because I live in Alaska and my skin is very dry here. It keeps my skin full of moisture all day!
Heavy Feeling For the First Minute - Then WOW!
I love this product! When I first tried it I thought it was too heavy. And then after about one minute, it felt light and great on my skin! I used it morning and night and saw a difference after just a few days. People at work ask me what new make-up I am using (still Bare Minerals - no change). I have sensitive skin that reacts even to the foods I eat and my skin loves it! If you are worried, try the trial pack.
I received a sample of this moisterizer from my boutique this past weekend. I immediately noticed a luminosity to my skin that I swear, I've never seen before! And to boot - it smells wonderful, is not greasy, and is it the process of healing 2 dry patches i've had on my face for the past 3 years. .... This is after only 3 days!! This cream will definitely be a part of my daily routine for years to come. IN LOVE!
Makes Your Skin Look & Feel Beautiful FAST!
I first received this moisturizer as a sample. I immediately loved it and ordered a full size. I've been looking for a moisturizer that makes my skin look and feel this way for a while now. This is perfect! It is very hydrating, but is not oily or greasy. It has a light, pleasant fragrance. In just a few days, I can see an improvement in my skin (really). Although it says "dry skin" on the jar, I believe it'd work for all skin types because it's so light. Maybe if you have combo skin, use it only at night. My skin tends to be a bit dry at times, so I wear it day and night. This is how I use it:
I put some in the palm of my hand and swirl it with my finger to melt it. I add a drop of water to make it more fluid, then I apply in light, upward strokes. An A+ product!
The most nourishing face creme
I fell in love on first use- This has become my main face creme, replacing a very $$ brand that I had used for years, because Purely Nourishing Creme works so well, I saw instant results. My face feels so moisturized and leaves me with a dewy look that makes me feel beautiful when I am "bare" faced at bedtime. Thank you !!
So great for dry skin and/or "winter skin". It really quenches my skin's thirst instantly...doesn't feel or look greasy...and any severe dry patches I have are gone within a day!
I typically have combination type skin, however, during the winter months I do have quite a bit more dryness. This cream definitely took care of the dryness but it added excess oil to my skin (more than what I normally have). I use my normal facial moisturizer during the day and use the cream just at night. If it weren't for the oily skin I'd give it a 5, but a 4 will have to do. I would definitely recommend it though!
Nice cream for dry skin.
I got this in the daily duo for dry skin and this cream works great. After a few days' use, my dry patches on my forehead are gone. I like it and will be repurchasing.
