I received this product and use it on the rare breakout that I may have and it really worked, so I got it for my daughter who also uses it. I tried it on an emerging fever blister/canker sore on the edge of my lip and this is the first product to stop the blister from forming. I can actually go out in public the days following the start of one of these annoying blisters because they don't fully develop!
Great product, poor size
I love this product and have used it for years. Over the years, however, the size has gone down and the price has gone up. The first one I got lasted me probably about a year and was at least twice the size as they currently offer. The last one I got lasted me a few months. I must say I'm disappointed that they only offer this small size now - especially since I still have the container for the first one I ever got (i reuse them as containers for random things instead of throwing them away) and it was about the size of the regular foundation they sell now. Why not give us bigger options??
Im loving this product
I don't usually write reviews, but I had to get on here today and write one for this product. I am a newer customer of BE products and am working on my supply. I received this product yesterday and decided that I would use it last night before going to bed just to test it out. I have very problem skin; cystic acne to be exact and have used anything and everything from Proactive Solution to antibiotics. I even use sulfur-based products but I have to say, the reviews on here are dead on. I woke this morning with blemishes still, however, they we less noticeable and smaller than last night and I was actually able to cover them today with my usual product. This was not the case yesterday! I don't know what all is in this product, but it really works and I would recommend it for anyone with problem skin that needs that extra push during the day and at night for healing. One thing to mention is that I have extremely sensitive skin and I experienced no redness or irritation what so ever. Don't hesitate to try this product; it really does work.
I have really bad skin this product heals the pimples, conceals, and moisturizer at the same time!!! Best product ever!
Keeps Blemishes at Bay
This product is wonderful, as are all BM products! I tend to break out if I stress too much or forget to wash my makeup off a few nights in a row. With the Blemish Therapy, I can keep blemishes under control at any time! I apply this under my foundation and as the last step in my nighttime routine, and it works great at keeping pimples from popping up in the most unwanted places. The key is being consistent with this product - however, if I use it too much, too often in one area, it can dry out my skin. When this happens, I wait one or two days before applying it again and it's back to working perfectly!
This stuff is amazing
I will never ever be caught with out this product. I had the biggest, red, sore pimple on my nose and used this under my foundation then again at night before bed and it is gone. I just can not believe how well this works. It is amazing. Love, love and love it! I really have very few breakouts but this just zaps any I do have. Dries them right up and takes the soreness out.
I've been using this for years in the am under my foundation and as my last step in my night time regime. Today I tried mixing it in with my moisturizer so I can get the benefits all over my face. I love how gentle it is yet it is very effective.
Nothing ever works for me....
I went to the BE boutique near my home in New York. I had a fairly large pimple in the crease of my nose and cheek. The sales associate put the blemish therapy on me and said I would see a huge difference in the morning. I thought to myself "Yeah right!" Well... I woke up the next morning and the pimple was BARELY noticeable. And there was NO redness what so ever. I couldn't believe it. I went back that day and bought the product. As always I am so pleased with BE!!
Pretty freakin' amazing!
I just received my order, which included this. I used it at night & by morning, the blemish was GONE! It stinks to high heaven, but this stuff really works! You can also use it BEFORE applying your foundation, which is very cool. I'm sold.
Like many people who have reviewed here, I had tried countless acne treatments in the past and few of them ever showed any real results. Last week a terrible scattering of pimples popped up on my forehead. I bought the acne treatment from Bare Escentuals not expecting much. The product came in yesterday, I applied it last night, and when I woke up this morning I couldn't believe it--the pimples on my forehead are almost completely gone!! I could not believe how fast this product works! I would highly recommend this to anyone. The best thing is that since it is a powder you don't have to worry about it drying your skin out. It's wonderful!!! :)
best acne treatment ever
I have been using this blemish therapy for some time now and cant live without it. I have combination skin and tend to break out from time to time. This is the best product to date that i have used and i have used MANY. Best product ever for acne treatment.
Doesn't do anything
I've tried this for blemishes and even putting it on evenly over my forehead to prevent future blemishes. I haven't noticed any difference at all. I think the treatment is too mild for me. I don't have very many blemishes at all, and the ones I have are very small, so it seems like it shouldn't take much to help or treat them...but this just doesn't do it. I think the cheap neutrogena stuff I pick up at Wal-mart works better. I love B.E. and all their products, and I've been trying to use this for 3 or 4 weeks now hoping to see a difference....but alas, there has been none. So sad.
Works well, although the container is tiny.
Last weekend my mum and I went to the bare minerals store to get our correct skin shades, and one of the ladies who was working there recommended this product for my little blemishes. I wasn't sure what to expect at first but after two days of using this product I could see a visible difference in my problem areas.
One thing I did notice though is the first few times I used this product it stung/burned my skin a bit, although that is probably just due to my extremely sensitive skin.
I was expecting the product to be a little bit bigger considering the price, although a little bit does go a long way (for me at least)
Over all I think this is a great product and would recommend it for those who have little blemishes here and there.
Without this product I think I would cry my acne was really bumming me out and then I started using the blemish therapy. This is not to say they are gone but it is to say that I am not as self conscious when I am wearing my makeup. People always say wow your skin looks better, what do you use. It is a concealer and a treatment at the same time, gentle and yet effective I believe in this product and will recommend it to anyone. Also the packaging is nice enough that you do not have to feel like oh another gross acne product it just looks like another eyeshadow and the brush is quite soft! Try it! It is a great value and a wonderful product
Love this product! Used by myself and two daughters. Wish BE would offer in a larger size and option to refill without brush.
Don't know what's in it, but it really works!
I was recently diagnosed with Lupus and from time to time I get what's called "the butterfly rash" across my cheeks. It looks like little patches of rough skin.
I pulled out my BM Blemish Therapy and brushed it on at night, and by the next morning, the rash is much better. Over the course of about three days, it's gone completely!
I've let my sister and husband both use this for random break outs and they are stunned at how well it works. This is definitely a Bare Minerals staple for me in my cosmetic bag.
HORRIBLE! WASTE OF MONEY!
I love Bare Escentuals products and had such high hopes for this...I want my money back! It takes several layers to get any sort of coverage, and it's not even that strong of coverage no matter how hard you try. Plus, it fades by mid-day, like I never put concealer on at all. I also haven't noticed any difference in how long I have blemishes. You'd be better off just dipping a concealer brush into your foundation to cover up spots- it's what I do now. Waste of money!
I was so wrong. This stuff works!!!
I am skeptical about products like this - I have tried loads of things to fight off anything that plagues my complexion. Most products dry up your skin so badly that it gives my sensitive/combo skin so many problems...
Other Bare Escentuals products have been fab so figured why not. So glad I did. I simply put it on at first suspicion (or complete outbreak...), and it covers straight away toning down the redness to the level I can then cover with foundation, and then, usually the next day, its pretty much gone. That has never, ever happened before. Normally one outbreak would continue for over a week and just ruin my face. :( This stuff has won me over! Try it.
Didnt like it
Did not work on me, it made my face smell like it was burning. Didnt really see if it worked because i didnt like the smell, so i stoped useing it.
I always tried to find products that would decrease pimples from forming & i finally found this! I put it on every morning & night. The blemish therapy helps stop pimples. Even if I feel a pimple coming, I put blemish therapy right away & the pimple comes out smaller. I just wish it lasted me longer. I feel like I always have to stock up. However, it is definitely worth it!
I love this.
I bought this not really expecting much. I used it the first day I got it and my pimple was pretty much gone by the next day.
Glad I decided to purchase
I was on the fence about getting this product. Boy am I glad I did! It helps to heal my blemishes and it concels while its working it's magic. Try it! I wish that it would be available in a larger size!
Blemish Therapy Helped!
I am 23 years old and never had acne in my life. All of a sudden I have developed acne. I have used all kinds of face washes, switched birth controls, gotten facials, next stop is dermatologist. My last attempt at acne wash treatment was Proactiv for about two weeks. Made everything seem worse. So I stopped and have really just been washing my face with water, but I use the Blemish Therapy in the morning before I put on make up, and at night before I go to bed. My acne seems to be increasingly clearer. Still going to the dermatologist, but it's definitely been effective!
I love this product so far. I have only used it for 3 days. I have suffered from bad acne over the summer and went on some meds and after 6-7 months I saw a huge improvement. I still wasn't to happy with the way my face looks and I had to use so much makeup to cover it all up and I still felt like it didn't cover at all. My hair dresser told me to go and buy bare minerals and I'm so glad she told me to get it. After using it for a while I noticed my skin starting to clear up. After a while I finally decided to get this product and I have notice a small difference in my skin. I would so recommend this product to anyone.
Magic in a little container
This stuff is like magic! It clears redness up in a snap. I was definitely skeptical at first, because a lot of other products out there make the same claims, but this one actually works! It helped heal existing zits and redness much more quickly, and so far has prevented anything new from popping up (I've been using this for about 2 weeks now). The only complaint I have is the small container...not the size/price ratio compared to what it was before because this is the first time I've bought it...but it is very small and I had a hard time getting the inner sticky cover off so I could use it. But this is definitely worth the price and I am so thankful to BE for this product!!!
doesn't help for most things
This product is an awesome concealer, which is the only reason I will ever buy it again, and that I gave it two hearts. It minimizes acne a little bit on my forehead, but acne on my cheeks is not looking any better at all, in fact it may be getting worse! I have been using this product for less than two weeks so I am willing to give it a little while longer to take affect. (I know how resilient acne is). I am also a little disappointed at the size of the product, it's tiny! I'm not really sure if it's worth what it costs...
Product is phenomenal, but size really disappoints
I have been using Blemish Therapy for years now, and I am always extremely pleased with how well it accomplishes what it claims to accomplish. My skin is clearer, more toned, and IF I get a breakout, it doesn't last very long or hurt at all.
HOWEVER - and this is a BIG however for me - this product is truly less than half the size of the original blemish therapy product. I still have the old product from last Christmas that I forgot I had on the shelf, and I've taken a picture so you can see what I'm talking about. The new product is .03 oz and the old product is .07 oz. That's less than half. I'm very disappointed.
I agree with these other reviewers: I DO NOT need a new brush every time I get more blemish therapy. Sell the brush separately and give us back the larger size. DON'T cut the product in half and only cut the price by three dollars. It's a cheap thing to do to your loyal customers. Along with some of these other reviewers, I WILL NOT purchase more blemish therapy until this inconsistency is righted.
Best Acne Treatment
This stuff is great. It clears up all kinds of blemishes, from whiteheads to blackheads to big pores, without leaving the skin dry, flaky and red. It even seems to help get the blemishes that are under the skin before they can erupt into something worse. I like that it also helps keep my pores clean so that they don't fill up and look even larger. I used to have lots of scarring that this has helped lessen because it keeps acne at bay. I like that it is gentle enough that I use it with an acne wash that is strong enough that it discourages you from using any spot products with it. I have sensitive skin, and this does not irritate me at all. I hope they never stop making it so that if my kids have skin issues as teens I will have a product that I feel good about them using. And, maybe a super-size!
Ordered this treatment and when I received it I had a bump on my face were a blemish was forming. I decided to try it out that night. The next morning I was amazed when I woke up the blemish had significantly reduced in size. I'm thrilled! Love this product.
This product is awesome! It does what it says it’s going to do, it clears all blemishes. I put it on every morning before my makeup on any emerging pimples, and by the night the pimples are all dried up and almost gone! It also does a great job at covering the redness and swelling it works really well with the BE concealer. I absolutely love this product, it’s a must have!!!
