Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin
I love this product. I have really bad acne -- but it's not bad in the sense that its constant, its bad in that sometimes it's horrible and sometimes there are just a few zits on my face. It's completely random and COMPLETELY annoying. Being 22 and still dealing with this problem is really frustrating. I was using the Dry Skin Cream for a long time before I switched to Combination and I'm SO GLAD I did. Combination is the perfect amount of moisture. When I apply my make up on top of it it's not flakey and it's not shiny which is amazing. Also my acne has dramatically decreased.
At night I wash my face with the Purifying Cleanser, use an Intensive Glow Pad, apply the Active Cell Renewal Night treatment and then this combination skin moisturizer. When I feel I'm on the eve of a break out I use the blemish therapy as well and it calms the blemish down making it go away faster. What a lot of girls don't realize is that if they are using different products from different brands it could irritate your skin more because the ingredients could be different and could react negatively with each other. If you like BE products - stick to it and give it about a week to two weeks to start working and you WILL see results. Because everything is natural in this brand it doesn't have harsh irritants, making it take a little bit longer than a harsh cleanser/moisturizer from another pharmacy brand. However, it will be much better for your skin in the long run so don't give up!
This product is amazing HOWEVER it's expensive and that's the only draw I see. Sorry for the long review but I hope it's helpful!
Due to my combination and acne I have always used a product which contained some sort of acne medication. I almost never applied moisturizer because it made the oily areas on my skin worse no matter what I tried. After trying this product I realized that I just needed the right moisturizer to tackle my combination skin.
I love this product! My skin looks better than it has been in years and years. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has combination skin.
Effective on Sensitive Skin
Fighting rosacea, portwine birthmark, and sensitive skin can be challenging. The moisturizer has been great to use as it has not created any reaction on my face such as blemishes, flareup of rosacea, or irritation. Other Bare Mineral products (foundation, etc) go on evenly for a smooth and consistent application helping conceal all the 'problem areas' on my face. The moisturizer is light , non-greasy in texture, yet effective in providing needed moisture for a mature complexion. One good pump and there is plenty of moisturizer to cover the face, and a second pump provides plenty to smooth upward on the neck. Would recommend product especially if sensitive skin is a consideration.
I love this moisturizer. I was looking for a new product to replace the moisturizer I was using before, as it just didn't seem to get the job done. This is terrific. Not oily at all, but still hydrating. I use it in combination with the night serum and the difference in my skin is tremendous! Love it!
The only moisturizer I use
Ever since trying the skincare line, my skin has dramatically improved. I have less red spots, discoloration, and recover quickly from my acne. I've had multiple moisturizers in the past, but this by far delivers the best results. My skin is softer, smoother, healthier looking, than before. This is the only moisturizer I use now. I gotta have it.
love this <3
i have been using BE for the past couple of years but just recently i have been turned on to the skin care products. i have combination skin and due to my job i am outside and inside hospitals and ambulances a lot. i tried this out in the store first and instantly noticed a huge difference. i have been using the green tea moisturizer by proactive for around a year but even that made my skin oily. i love using this product after i wash my face with the cleanser. i have noticed a huge difference in my skin tone and how it feels and how it looks more even. my pores have gotten significantly smaller and i am so happy about it!! i strongly recommend this product. <3 BE. switching all of my makeup over to BE slowly =P
Changed my skin!
I had been a Clinique user for couple years until I realized I needed to have skin care products that were more natural and effective. The first time I used the product my skin instantly felt moisturizer and refreshed. I also noticed that my skin didn't get oily as fast as it usually does and after a couple weeks I noticed I broke out a lot less.
Purely Nourishing Moisturizer
Love this moisturizer! It goes on smooth and is not greasy at all. I have always had an oily T-zone but since using BE I do not have that problem anymore. I have searched for this my whole life!!
My skin gets really oily and all the moisturizers I try (Especially ones with SPF) make my skin look really shiny but people keep telling me I need to moisturize or my skin will start getting more oily so I was putting on very little with no SPF until I got this one! It spread over your face really thin so it doesn't look shiny! And it has SPF!!! YAY!!! LOVE IT!!!
Great product, lousy packaging
This moisturizer feels great going on and soaks right in, but I have stopped using it because the pump to dispense it stops working with a significant amount of product left in the bottle. Please improve the packaging to avoid struggling to get the product out for the last third of the bottle!
Sad and Disappointed
I love BE and when I first tried the skin care I was ecstatic - I loved the "earthy" scent of the skin care line and the way it made my skin feel after applying it but sadly, I had to admit after using it for a few months that it was, in fact, causing me to break out. When I first started using it (the cleanser, the moisturizer and eye cream) I was so excited because, at 45, I have never used moisturizer. I hate the way they feel and always felt my pores were clogged and greasy, plus I hated the chemicals in most. At first my skin looked fabulous and my pores were noticeably smaller but then I began breaking out all over. The breakouts stopped when I quit using it. It felt really great - a kind of dry soft feel but I did notice after consistent use that it didn't actually moisturize at all - my skin seemed thirsty and began to break out bad over time. So sad. Now I'm using just pure Argan oil, which is amazing and affordable!
This moisturizer is fabulous!
I have sensitive, combination skin prone to breakouts when it's grumpy. I am also allergic to silicone and dimethicone and it's difficult to find beauty products w/o those ingredients.
This moisturizer is GREAT! My skin is smooth, calm, and happy. It never leaves me greasy and I have no oil on my face all day. My skin is BALANCED. It's not upset, grumpy, red, or trying to over-correct anything I'm doing to it.
BE -- Keep making everything you make. FABULOUS products!!!
A customer for over ten years
I love Bare Minerals and will never use another product. When the skin care line came out I had no doubt it would be amazing. Of course, when I bought the cleanser moisturizer and other skin products I wasn't dissappointed at all. The moisturizer leaves my skin smooth and nongreasy. Ever since I've been using this product my skin been looking better and better even though iam getting older. Love this stuff. Keep it up Leslie!
This is a great moisturizer!
I have been using the purifying cleanser and the moisturizer for combination skin, and they have been wonderful! I noticed the benefits immediately! My complexion glowed and over time, my skin texture improved. It's hard to find a moisturizer that takes care of both acne-prone areas and dry areas of the face, but bareMinerals has done it! Check it out!
Only a little covers a lot
I love how little of this product I need to use to cover my whole face. I feel like this will practically last forever!
Perfect moisturizer, absorbs quickly & feels clean
I bought my first regular sized bottle of this moisturizer today & love it!! I was sent a sample in one of my Bare Mineral orders from this site & knew immediately just from the couple of uses out of that little packet, that I had found the perfect one! It absorbs quickly into your skin, doesn't weigh the skin down & doesn't leave that greasy 'need to wash my face again' feel!! I am also using the eye cream & love it as well! I am a loyal BE user & will NEVER use any other brand!! Thank you for yet another awesome product I can now add to my growing collection BE!
I had never used BE skin care products before and so I took a chance and bought this and I absolutely love it. It is very creamy but light and absorbs into your skin quickly while still having a nice affect on your face. I love this stuff. I hope I never run out.
I love this Moisturizer. I didn't really wanna spend a lot of money in the beginning when I started using Bare Minerals but realized I have loved everything i have gotten. Never going back to any other product.
The only moisturizer I'll ever use.
I've searched high and low for a moisturizer that does its job and doesn't cause me to break out. Every other brand I've tried works great for a few days and then the breakout is inevitable. With the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer I know that I'm going to end up with great feeling skin and no nasty breakout.
Troubled Skin? NOT FOR ME! Thanks BE!
LOVE THIS! I just started using this moisturizer and it has given me skin I have only dreamed about. I usually break on along my jaw line, and cheeks, and I have seen HUGE improvement after using the purifying cleanser and the moisturizer for combination skin. I have used almost every moisturizer, especially Aveeno, but it leaves my skin feeling oily (even though it says oil free) and it just did not leave my skin feeling smooth or healthy. The BE moisturizer leaves my skin soft, not oily, not dry, radiant, healthy looking, and refreshed. I have sensitive skin, so other moisturizers would irritate my skin and turn it red, before it calmed down and it would burn along my nose and mouth, but the purifying moisturizer is so gentle, leaves no red spots, and hydrates my skin wonderfully. I cannot get over how awesome BE products are!
Great for daily use & like a primer
I've found that I don't need a facial primer when using this moisturizer. I just apply it as normal, wait for it to dry, and apply my BE makeup routine. The scent isn't overpowering and it applies smooth and easy. I got a trial size of this on Cyber Monday and immediately bought a full size one once it ran out!
I have been a loyal Clinique user for years, not anymore! I love this stuff! I have combination skin hardcore. Either dry and flaky or large pores and breakouts. This takes care of both and my skin tone has has evened out.
Doesn't leave greasy residue
I have only been using this moisturizer for a week, but so far I am pleased.
My past problem with many moisturizers is that they leave my face greasy even if I only use a small amount and that made it very difficult to try to apply makeup on top. With past moisturizers, I applied a little to my face at least 30 min before applying makeup to allow plenty of drying time, but instead of a smooth surface, I ended up with areas that were greasy causing my BE foundation to "cake" up in some areas where the moisturizer left behind a greasy residue. With BE combination skin moisturizer I don't have that problem!
This is a great moisturizer that leaves my skin very soft, smooth and NOT GREASY so I am able to apply my well rested, concealer, and foundation with complete ease. It is a little pricey, but so far it seems to be worth it.
Bring back the old moisturizer!
My skin is very sensitive and I was thrilled when I found your moisturizer about a year ago. When I was ready to order a new one and found you no longer made the one I was using, I decided to go for it. Within two days of using it, my face broke out and it then cleared up after I stopped using the product. I gave it another chance about a month later with the same results. Please, please, bring back the old moisturizer!! It was fantastic and wonderful on sensitive skin!
This moisturizer is better than any I've ever used.
I was a loyal MAC spf 15 moisturizer customer, and just tried this out because of the great price of the duo package it came in (with the cleanser). I will never go back!
Doesn't make my skin oily, doesn't clog pores, and truly does moisturize.
I walk 15 minutes to class in frigid Wisconsin weather, and I had been getting dry skin patches on my face. (How embarrassing!) This moisturizer has successfully prevented that from happening ever again. I'm so impressed.
I have very picky skin and any change in my skincare routine usually ends up with a few breakouts, but not with this moisturizer. It's wonderful!! Very smooth and creamy. It absorbs quickly and my face doesn't get shiny or oily. I am very pleased with this product!
I have oily skin, and finding a good moisturizer has been a long struggle. This one is the best. It keeps my skin balanced and hydrated, but it's never oily. You don't need to use very much of it, either. I love it!
A staple in any face washing routine
I'm currently using the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer for Combination Skin in conjunction with the Purifying Facial Cleanser. What a dynamic duo! After cleansing my face I apply 2-3 pumps of the moisturizer over my face and neck. When I was using a previous brand I would have to wait to apply makeup because the moisturizer would make my face shiny and slick. I would even have to blot my face with oil absorbing sheets prior to the makeup application, but this is NOT the case with this product! If I need to apply makeup right after applying the moisturizer-I can! It does not leave your face shiny and wet looking. Your skin absorbs the moisturizer quickly and after you apply makeup your skin will look well hydrated and flawless!
I have tried many lotions. This is my favorite. It does a beautiful job of hydrating the dry areas and controlling shine in the oily areas. My face feels perfect as soon as I apply it and stays that way all day long. The smell that others complained of is a very organic smell that appeals to me as a gardener. I actually like it. It also dissipates as soon as you apply the lotion, so really isn't an issue. I have plenty of other products to supply fragrance and prefer not to have another competing fragrance anyway.
I absolutely love the moisturizer!! My face immediately feels so good. I use it everyday and there has definitely been a difference in the softness and texture of my skin. It has been awesome to keep my skin smooth and soft during these cold temperatures. I would highly recommend to anyone, and I often do to all my friends. You won't be sorry.
