7-Day Skin Detox Mineral Brightening Peel
Small difference for the price
Pros: smoother texture, smaller pores, somewhat brighter tone. Cons: mild effect.
I guess I expected more for the price. After the first day, I cut the pads in half and used just half of each day's liquid so that I can do it again and save some $$. Day 4 was a little tingly. No redness or peeling throughout the process. In the past, I have used straight glycolic and lactic acids so I knew what to expect. Disappointed that it was so mild. Probably won't buy again because the price doesn't equal the result for me.
Made such a (short term) difference!
First off, if you're going to buy this, use just half the bottle each time! There is a surprisingly generous amount in there and by doing so it's like it's a half-price detox.
Okay, on to the review! I loved this detox. I did it right after January 1st to sort of start the year with a clean palate. I felt a difference starting with Day 2; every morning when I work up, my skin was softer than it's ever been. By the end of the week I could see that my skin was also brighter. Brighter and softer are good things!
Overall, it was a nice way to give my skin a boost, although I wish it would always be that bright and soft! I will definitely buy it again, but divide up the bottles to get more bang for my buck.
Product made my face worse
I tried this product after much research and recommendation from the girls at the boutique. I know it has worked great for some, but I'm not one of them. I finished the 7 days a couple days ago and my skin is worse than before. My forehead looks like I have the chicken pox, and I never get acne on my forehead. I wish I could say I loved it, because I was so excited to try it. Instead, I spent a lot of money on a product that made my skin worse. I wish it had a money back guarantee, or a way to sample without spending so much money. I know people who love it though, so good luck to each of you if you choose to purchase this product. I hope it works for you!
Great first time, horrible the second...
I tried the 7 day detox and loved it the first time. The second time... Not so much. I have some discoloration on my cheeks and it did brighten up the spots. I was in love. So in love, I went back and purchased another after a month... Big mistake. I saw no results. It felt like I was just swiping water all over my face. I got up to day 4 and called it quits. I def won't be trying this product again. It was great once, but that's about it.
Make sure you wear sunscreen while on the detox and before.
I have Sensitive Skin
I ordered this product cause I've tried other things and they haven't worked and was hoping this might. Well it did work although It did tingle and the third day my face did get a little red but after a bit it went away, I'm not going to say it completely cleared everything but when all I used to wash my face was soap and water it has a long healing process, but I'm working on it.
Not for sensitive skin
It tingled and burned my skin. By day 3 my face looked like I had a sunburn. By day 6 I really didn't like the product and stopped using it. Didn't see any results. I am hoping to return. Save your money for a nice relaxing facial!!
I am not one who usually writes reviews but WOW! I have tried tons of products in the past and nothing seemed to work. I even had the laser done for ance prone skin.. after using this product my acne has started to disapper, the ance scars have started to go away, my skin is soft.. It's amazing! I plan on using this product every other month if not every month. Thank you Bare Escentuals!
plan for peeling skin
I completed the 7 day detox 5 days ago. I believe my skin looks brighter and just better. However, 3 days after the last treatment my skin began to peel and flake around my eyes and chin. Now 5 days after the last treatment my face is peeling/flaking all over. I know this will pass and the skin underneath will be newer and softer, but beware of when you start this treatment. Plan it so that if you too peel, it is not at a time when you have an event. My skin is normal, not overly sensitive. I would use again and recommend.
What a Treat!
Just finished my 7 day Detox and my face feels smoother and looks clearer. I can't believe the difference. I have been a Bare Minerals user for over 5 years and love all the products. This one was a real treat...it was simple and everything was in the box. I love it and can't wait to see how it does on the 2nd try! Thanks Leslie and staff!!!
Do not waste your money!!
i bought this product on impulse after seeing the display in the store window. Just finished day 7 and it is an absolute waste of money! Do not fall for what they say this product does. I felt a little tingle on my skin on day 4, and that was it...no visible results at all. I wish I could get my money back but sadly I doubt that is an option. Should have just added another $25 or so and had a facial or mini peel at my dermatologist. I feel like the buzz word "detox" was a marketing gimmick, and I feel like a loser for falling for it.
Worth the investment!
After this detox my skin feels smooth as a baby's bottom! soft and wonderful to touch! It was so easy to use and really made my skin feel new again!
Next break through product since min. foundation!
From day 1, you can feel the active product working to detox your skin, and as each day progresses, my skin has gotten more even, smooth and bright.
If you have ever tried BareMinerals Prime Time, using the detox system is a similar feeling after use. After a detox application, I apply a moisturizer, and it just GLIDES on as if my skin was silk. Truly amazing. I plan to make this a monthly routine--it is so easy to do at home, and I can see the benefits.
My skin feel smoother. Once my face dries up I do apply the active serum. But so far I love it and the bottles do give enough for 2 or 3 treatments. I recommend this to my friends.
This Is Amazing
This product reminds me of a facial, but for seven days instead of one. I use it at night, and when I wake up my skin looks evenly toned as well as smooth. I also have acne scars and this has helped diminish them, which I love to see. It does have a slight tingle, but to me that means its doing what it should, get rid of dead skin cells. My makeup even looks better on after using this.
pleasant surprise for birthday
I received this 7 Day Detox for a holiday gift and also for my 30th birthday coming up soon. I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised at the effectiveness of the treatments as my face never felt like it was being attacked by harsh chemicals like with other brands of the past. The treatments are properly introduced to the skin in steps so there is no shock and results are noticeable the first day. I haven't had any product have such a positive affect on my complexion the way this has.
