Skin Rev-er Upper
Got this product in a kit and didn't use it for three years because I thought it dried out my skin. I tried all types of expensive and department store moisturizers without success. Lately decided to use give BE moisturizers a try because I have always loved the foundation and mineral veil. Still the foundation would need a complete retouch because of my oily t-zone. Thought I will just try the Rev-er Upper and with the balance of the BE moisturizers it is perfect for my skin. And if I add the original primer that I just discovered it lasts all day with maybe a touch of mineral veil towards the evening. I'm so happy! Yes it is some extra steps, but is so worth it and is so much lighter then traditional foundation. :) Pure awesome and fine lines so improved.
The very first time I tried this product I fell in love with it. I did not want to pay the amount of $$ for it but I did. When I run out, I do not hesitate getting another bottle. I love the way my skin look and feel when I put this on. I use morning and night.
I'm 15 years old and i have combination skin, i'm just like in lovee with this! i dont even need to put on primer after this because this makes me makeup go on smoothly and it makes it look natural<3 there's nothing more i could ask for, this is just tooo perfect, yes i'm a guy(: this is how natural i look with the bare vitamins skin rev-er upper under my makeup(: no the picture is not photoshopped, i just put a caramel colored towel over the lights xD
This is my favorite product. It has evened out my skin tone, smoothed and softened me face too! This is a must have!
My skin loves this stuff...
It does take time for this stuff to really work it magic, and when it does, you will never go back!
First off, it goes under the moisturizer! When you apply it, make sure your face is lightly damp. I usually wet my hand after I've washed my face and flick the water on my face. Next, squirt 1 pump in your hand and dab your finger in it and dab your cheeks, chin, nose and get a good amount on the forehead. A half squirt may be needed for the forehead. Then just rub it on the face. Let it dry partly then add moisturizer!
Once your skin absorbs everything, add primer and have fun!
This took me a few months to get the combo right for me, so just test what works for you. I did break out when I first used this stuff and I realized now that my pores were purging slot of junk out, thanks to this stuff and now I almost never break out!
Fast and Effective
I first got the Skin Rev-er Upper in the Get Started Kit. I wasn't sure how to use it so I let it sit idly by for a few weeks. But I decided that I didn't want to waste it and there was no going back once I tried it.
I have oily and sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts. I noticed a very huge difference almost immediately after I put this on my face. My skin was so much smoother and I had fewer and milder breakouts. The smell doesn't bother me, I usually don't notice it and it's so light and not greasy at all. I've had my bottle for a while so it's really worth the investment. I only use one pump for my entire face right before I put on moisturizer. It makes a world of difference in my skincare routine.
I received this product in a set with another product and really didn't like it. I could figure out when you were supposed to use it. I use the BE moisturizer already, so I didn't want to use it as a moisturizer. And after I'd put my moisturizer on, it didn't feel good over it. I didn't want to put it on over my makeup, because then it messed it up. Also, it had an odd kind of chemical smell to it. I gave this away asap.
It's definitely my fault...
Let's begin saying I started out full of good intentions for this product: apart for the smell, which took me a little bit getting used to, I was already conquered by the description. What you need to know is that I first got this product when I was a tender teenager and my skin used to behave accordingly: uber-sensitive (I am an allergic subject), but with an oily-ish T-zone... I got Skin Rev-er Upper when I bought my first Get Started kit and after just one day I noticed my skin felt super smooth. Love at first sight, you might say... Alas, no! Because after three to four days of applying this product just once a day, my skin got all bumpy, as if I had thousands of little pimples coming up... At first I put the blame on my hormones-freaked condition of teenager, so I waited three years before going back to a new bottle, full of hope... No, no change at all... Still perfect after the first day, dry, bumpy and itchy afterwards... :(
I'd recommend this product to those who have a fairly tough skin, not a sensitive one like my own... Sorry Rev-er Upper, between the two of us it was just not meant to be!!! I still give it 3 hearts because I'm partially responsible for the failure of our relationship, but I still wish there was a gentler version...
Skin Rev-er Upper--A Wonderful Product!!!!!
Skin Rev-er Upper is a great product to begin your skin regiment before applying the wonderful Bare Minerals make-up. I'm so pleased with all the products. I receive so many compliments on my make-up.
I have very dry sensitive skin so most products w/ glycolic acid or hyaluronic acid are too harsh for my skin. My mother had a bottle of the bare vitamins so I tried it. Once a day is perfect for me. GONE is the flaky skin and my complexion looks amazing even before I use foundation!
