Anti-Blemish Solution Kit
I bought this product feeling very optimistic. However, after using it for a full month I noticed no improvement in my skin at all. I am on the mini pill which may cause my skin to be worse than normal but I still hoped this would help at least a little. I am tempted to try it for one more month but no longer feel hopeful.
As many reviewers write, I don't often review products. I've never really had a reason to. I fell in love with the bareminerals make up this past summer. My acne really wasn't all that bad for most of my teen years. It was nothing I couldn't get by with a little cover -up, and an occasional big blemish here or there. However after I turned 22 my skin got a lot worse. My chin was covered with tiny little pimples that trickled all the way up my cheek bones-indicative of hormonal acne. I tried everything. The Clean and Clear line, Burt's Bees line, the Bare Escentuals line, and even the new oil cleansing method using castor oil and jojoba. Nothing seemed to work. Still believing in the integrity of Bare Escentual's products, I decided to try their 7-day detox kit. This worked wonderfully! My skin was transforming over night. And by the last day most of the acne had diminished. However, my beautiful skin didn't last. This lead me to believe that I needed something stronger. So that's when I told myself that I'd give the MD formulations one shot. If not, maybe it's time to visit a dermatologist. I've had this kit for only a week. And the difference is incredible. The results are better than the ones I had from the detox kit. My skin feels smoother, and it looks like I have BEAUTIFUL skin. My acne is almost all gone! They suggest starting for the first 1-2 weeks with JUST the morning routine, and I absolutely agree. My skin has been a bit dry and flakey, but rough through it. Because the results are worth it. The Glycare Lotion is wonderful and gives me the smoothest skin, while also fighting the acne. And the Antioxidant Moisture Defense Gel is a revolutionary way to hydrate the skin. Only a drop or two will cover your entire face! And it feels amazing on my skin. Obviously, everyone's skin is different. So what may work for me, might not work for you. But I am telling you this DOES work for me. One thing that may have helped was that I went back on birth control about 3 or 4 months ago. I'm not sure because I think that if it was the birth control that cleared my skin, I feel like I would have seen results much sooner. Just some food for though. Anyways, I can honestly say that I love these products. I will not buy anything else. I feel more confident than I have in years. And now when I wake up, I am comfortable WITHOUT makeup. There is nothing worse than not being happy in your own skin, and having to cover up your acne just to walk down the stairs in the morning. Give this a shot! And what a great value- a whole set of products for $45!
I have tried proactiv for YEARS! Spent thousands on every product they had in every combo they asked me to... aaand nothin! I recently tried a few others and same thing did 30 days and it's either 59 products needed for lots of money and it sorta works or it's affordable and no difference. I've wanted to try bare minerals make-up for years but I'm a riding instructor and it's really important to have moisture and sunscreen and I was scared! I stumbled on this kit and it has it all. I was shocked it actually WORKS! I replaced the eye stuff with the rev ed up eye cream cuz it helps with dark circles (I have kids and work with kids) & the sunscreen with the bb primer with spf 30. My mom has large pores and dad has oily skin and I thought I was DOOMED to have acne forever; so just to be sure I wasn't getting my hopes up I used it on my bad side only (my left side it gets the most sun) for the first week and WOW! No redness. Smaller pores. LESS acne. Dark spots are lighter and with the BB primer I can kinda wear make up that isn't greasy or smells like sunsreen. I now use it on my whole face and I'm in love. Try it; if it works...I told you so.;)
I have been using this product for the past two months and I love it. I am 50+ and should not have to deal with acne at my age, and now I don't have too. My skin is finally clear for the first time in my life and even when i do get a small blemish it is gone in a day. This stuff really works and I have tried many product before using this. I would recomend this to any one experiencing break outs and reddness. I will be purchasing this for many years to come. Thank you Bare Minerials for a quality product at an affordable price.
I have been struggling with acne for sooooo long. I'm a single mom, I work two jobs, and I'm constantly physically active. I eat right and I drink a lot of water but my skin would still be terrible. I've tried skin id, bodyshop, proactiv, juice beauty. All were pleasant to use but just would not help my skin. Either it would completely dry out my skin, or just not tackle the acne. The first day of using this it felt right. I've only been using it one week now but in just a week there are still results. A much brighter complexion, no new blemishes, my skin feels great its not all dry or oily it really is just magic for me. I am SO happy I've finally got my hands on a product that works for my skin type.
