Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin
I started using Rare Minerals over 2 years ago and loved the moisturizer. I think the new line works just as well since I have yet to have had dry or oily skin since I've switched or over the past 2 years. My one complaint is that it doesn't smell as good as the original line. This sorta reminds me of a household cleaning product. Or a stinking lavendar.
I recently just starte using this product. Before I was using alveeno, but this moisture is so much better. It is so weightless and doesn't get your face greasy. It is so light and it absorbs into my skin so well. I never have to apply it twice.
There are just no words....
Ok, there are, and I'm going to try my best to describe how AMAZING this moisturizer is.
I have combination skin... to the extream. I will have a very oily T-zone, and my cheeks will be scaley they are so dry. The problem with most combination products is that they are still too drying, or too oily.
I can't believe how wonderful this product is. This product is so rich... yet so light. I just can't understand how it is possible. This smooths my dry spots in an instant, yet keeps the rest balanced. I do use this in combination with the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer for dry skin (cream that comes in a jar). I tend to use the dry skin cream at night and on days when it is windy or dry. I wear this during the day when it may be more humid. It is my perfect duo to beautiful skin. These are so silky and smooth, and my skin is just glowing.
I keep saying BE better watch out... that they are going to put their foundations out of business. I keep using less and less of the foundation because I LOVE my skin!
Just a little too heavy
I found this moisturizer to be just a little to heavy and greasy to warrant continuing to purchase it. There are better options out there.
I like how my skin feels, but can't stand the smell :(
Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin
Unfortunately, for me, this moisturizer did not work. Pores felt clogged and my skin actually broke out. As soon as I stopped using it, my skin cleared almost right away. Definitely not a moisturizer I would use again.
Not as I Expected!
When I first tried this product on in the store, it made my skin feel so smooth and I fell in love! It doesnt have sun screen and my face is really sensitive to the sun but the beauty experts at the store really insissted on how great this moisturizer is so I said ok i'll try it!
I have been using it for about 5 months now and am not satisfied at all. The smoothness doesnt last long throughout the day and the worst part is not having sunscreen. Basically, I can not use this product on my face during the day. I didnt keep the reciept because I was sure I would love it. Wish I could return it now. Might be good for those whose skin is not easily sun damaged like mine.
NOTHING like the old formula!
I absolutly loved the old formula. I never had break outs and now I have them all the time with this new formula. I wish they would have never changed it!
I may have only tried the sample size of this product, but I LOVE it!!! I only need to use it once a day, and have noticed a difference in the way my skin looks!!!
I got this as part of the trial pack and am glad that I got the small size. The creamy texture is nice and it doesn't make my skin break out like most moisturizers do. But, It isn't quite moisturizing enough for me.
I took 2 stars away because 1) It doesn't contain sunscreen, and 2) I really hate the smell.
The BEST moisturizer for oily/combo skin
I've used this moisturizer since it was first lauched in the plain lab testing packaging. I immediately fell in love with it and have been using it since. I've got combo skin/oily t-zone. This moisturizes without any greasy feel, evened out my skintone and leaves this wonderful glow behind. I also use the cleansers, eye cream, neck cream, serum and night treatment. The price is fantastic considering how long it lasts you.
I have to agree with a lot of the other reviews, except...I didn't really like the old moisturizer either. I don't understand. I LOVE BE makeup. Love it. I tried the skincare before...didnt like it. I do like the new cleanser...huge improvement over the sand they used to sell. However, something about the new moisturizer formula does not work for my skin. I'm not prone to breakouts...but I've been breaking out since I started using this. It seems to be leaving some areas very dry...parched even. Very strange.
Not for Me
I need something more. This is not for me, I need something that helps make my skin, more moist and younger looking and this dosen't do that. It just keeps your skin moist for a while, not long enough. I need more elastisity and I want my moisturizer. I would like it removed from auto-delivery.
Not so Much!
I wanted to love this product after being a long time BE firming eye treatment user but I couldn't even use it for 1 week. I just couldn't get beyond the smell of it, it was not a fresh smell like the eye treatment but more of a Eucalyptus smell. Simply awful! So in all fairness I can't say how the product functioned on the whole, I didn't want to smell like that all day long. Please BE, change the fragrance in it and you probably have a winner here!!!
Works on oily skin
I have extremely oily skin and never even looked at the sample of this moisturizer for weeks after I had been using the exfoilating cleanser. Since that cleanser worked so well amd my skin was clearing up i decided to try this moisturizer. It works extremely well on my oily skin! It controls the oil but still adequately moisturizes my face. In fact when i dont use it my face is much oiler. I have never bought combination skin moisturizer before, instead opting for oil control moisturizers. I honestly think this work better than anything. As with all BE products a little goes a long way! This will be your last moisturizer.
Light and perfect!
Love, love, love this moisturizer! A little goes FAR! It leaves my skin nice, smooth and hydrated. It doesn't leave my t-zone oily. If I have a very dry spot, I just put on a little extra on the spot and I'm good to go. I love this skincare line!
Leaves my skin soft and radiant like no other product I've used. Thank you.
I love this moisturizer, I just bought it recently and I can see the difference it makes already. I certainly am happy with it.
18 months ago, I FINALLY found your fabulous moisturizer -- it is perfect for my sensitive skin. Today, I went on-line to re-order 3 more of this product, but soon learned you don't carry that product any longer. After reading the negative reviews about the new formula, I will not re-order afterall.........too chancey. Why would you change something that works? I don't get it.
I've been ecstatic since I discovered BE makeup 18 months ago. For the first time in my life (I'm 65) I LOVE my makeup! Sure hope I don't have to go back to the drawing board if you're going to begin changing formulas.
I started using the entire skincare line about a month ago and CANNOT believe how quickly I've seen improvements! I'm lucky to have had a good complexion all my life but I just turned 40 and like a light switch I started to see slight signs of aging: small lines and enlarged pores. In less than a month I noticed a quick turnaround -especially with reduced pore size! The moistuizer is perfect - not too thick and quickly absorbs. Love the whole line!
The first few days it worked really well keeping the oil under control and my face was not shiny at all. After that, it doesn't seem to help very much and my skin seems oily throughout the day, like before I even started using this product. I am not very pleased with the way the results have turned out and would really like my money back. I would not recommend this product to anyone. I will finish the bottle but will definitely not be re-purchasing it again.
Not happy with this Change
Just when i thought I found a great moisturizer, Bare Minerals goes and changes it into something totally different. This new product smells awful, I hate to give a bad review because i love the brand so much. I saw that some people complain about it being the cause of break outs, my skin in all honestly have started breaking out more than usual but it could be a co-incidence. Its not for my oily skin for sure; during the "new product" transition, Bare Minerals forgot all about us Oily Skin/ Sensitive Skin girls :(... Please if you really do care about our reviews, bring back the old moisturizer.
Best face lotion EVER!!
This is seriously the best face lotion i have ever bought/used. I have sensitive and dry skin so it is essential that I use a good moisturizer. This product delivers TONS of moisture without making me look or feel like a grease ball. It absorbs quickly leaving my skin soft, smooth and calm with a healthy glow. Like all of the BareMinerals products, a little goes a long way just a pump or two is plenty. I love how this lotion feels too, it is almost thick like a cream but light and silky at the same time, hard to explain but it's awesome. Just buy some already you know you want to!!!
Perfect for my skin type
I've been looking for a good moisturizer for a long time now and , for me, this product has done exactly what was described. I have huge pores and after just a few days of using this I noticed that they were smaller. No product has been able to do that for me before! It's not greasy and hasn't caused me to break out or turn my skin red. I love this moisturizer and recommend it to everyone I know!
The perfect lotion
I actually bought this lotion for my finance. He has pretty bad skin since he either spends his time in front of a screen or out in the garage. But this in combination with the ex foliating cleanser has made his skin qlow in stead of being glossy.
My LONG search for a moisturizer is over! Thanks for not adding sunscreen to this, as I am allergic. This quickly absorbs into my skin and it doesn't feel heavy or greasy.
Not the same
I've used this product before they changed the packaging and I loved it. After starting to use this new version of the product my face started to develop bumps. My skin is acne prone but once I stopped using it the bumps decreased dramatically and are starting to go away. I wish they would have just left this product the way it was.
not a fan.
i tried the purely nourishing moistuizer for combo skin, and did not like it. it felt greasy on my face, even though it is oil free. also, something that i look for that wasn't in this product was SPF protection.
however, it did smell nice.
After using this day and night for only a few days, I could see a noticable difference in my skin tone. It gave me glowing, balanced skin! However, within a week I began breaking out like I had just hit puberty all over again. I have very sensitive skin but I do not get many blemishes and I swear by my skin care regimen. I have used Aveno or Neutrogena facial lotions for years but after loving the Bare Minerals makeup, I wanted to try out the other products as well. I loved this moisturizer but sadly, cannot use it.
I loved the BE moisturizer before this new formulation; this leaves my skin feeling rough and itchy. Had the same trouble w/ a second product (won't name since not available here) - after about 5 wks of nice results, then came very itchy skin. Cannot use either product :(
