Purely Nourishing Cream: Dry Skin
Dry no longer
The purely nourishing dry skin cream is the best cream I have found for extremely dry skin. I found the added benefit of deep wrinkle reduction an amazing surprise. This is now the only face cream I will use.
I have very dry skin and have tried many products from Origins to Arbonne. This is by far the best moisturizer I've ever used. It absorbs quickly, is not greasy and keeps my skin feeling hydrated til morning. If you've dealt with the embarrassment of flaky skin, then I would suggest you try this. I'm still deciding on the cleanser. So far, I still prefer Arbonne, but will keep trying Bare Minerals to see if they can do it better!
This is THE best moisturizer EVER!!!! I have such dry skin epecially during the winter. I was originally going to buy the moisturizing mineral vail and the normal lotion but the sales person said to try there thicker moisturizers instead. As soon as she put a little dab on my hand it Instantly felt softer and more hydrated. 15 minutes after my purchase, I felt my hand and it was still smooth and hydrated. Usually my skin drinks lotion up so fast it doesn't feel like I out anything on. Not this one. Great for dry skin!!!
feels so good
This is the best moisturing cream I have ever used. It goes on so smoothly - is not greasy - makes my skin feel wonderful. And when I wake up in the morning my skin still feels hydrated and smooth. I'm 64 with dry and sensitive skin and this is absolutely wonderful. If it is this good on my old skin it must be truely great on younger faces!
Whoa... just.... WHOA!
There are just no words....
Ok, there are, and I'm going to try my best to describe how AMAZING this moisturizer is.
I have combination skin... to the extream. I will have a very oily T-zone, and my cheeks will be scaley they are so dry. The problem with most combination products is that they are still too drying, or too oily.
I can't believe how wonderful this product is. It comes in a jar, which ususally raises a red flag that it will be too heavy for me. This product is so rich... yet so light. I just can't understand how it is possible. This smooths my dry spots in an instant, yet keeps the rest balanced. I do use this in combination with the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer for Combination skin. I tend to use this cream at night and on days when it is windy or dry. The other during the day when it may be more humid. It is my perfect duo to beautiful skin. These are so silky and smooth, and my skin is just glowing.
I keep saying BE better watch out... that they are going to put their foundations out of business. I keep using less and less of the foundation because I LOVE my skin!
Where have I been?
I have extremely sensitive skin. I've just turned 42 and my face soap/moisturizer had stopped working for me. I've never purchased a moisturizer from a beauty store before, but the minute I tried the sample on my hand I knew I had to have it. In 2 days my face is glowing, soft, and seems some fine lines have disappeared (though I'm sure they are still there). Finding this product has saved me from wasting my money on any cheap immitators. This is the best gift I've given myself in a long time! You have to try this.
I have dry, red skin around my nose and I have tried so hard to find products that would work. So I found this a few weeks ago and decided to give it a try. At first, I didn't see any major difference. I was starting to get disappointed but as I kept using it I could see and feel a huge difference. You should definitely give it a try!
After years of looking for a face cream that could handle the challenges of a dry patchy complexion without upsetting my sensitive skin, I have found it! I'm on my second jar. This cream, applied twice a day, is all I need. No other moisturizers, toners, creams, lotions...just this. Works great with my Bare Minerals makeup products. Definitely worth the price...long lasting jar.
So I have the oiliest Italian skin. I usually dont wear lotion, but I saw the reviews and wanted to try. I have been using this cream every day before bed ( I work at night). I have noticed a huge improvement in my skin. I use the primer before I put on my makeup and I am not as oily as before. I am so impressed with this product. I have had thiscream for a month and I have only used 1/4 of the cream. A little goes a long way!!
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.
