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!!!
I decided to give this a try since NOTHING else has ever worked for me. this works great for me.
Not what I expected
I have to admit, I HATED this product after I picked it up in the boutique - for one reason only. The smell. Apparently smell is my super power - and the sulfer smell was too much for me around my nose. After I saw the results however, I decided I could deal with a little stink if it worked that well!! AH-MAZ-ING results!! I have used everything from very high dollar salons to drug store products, nothing has worked this well with no negative impact (drying or peeling) on my skin!! I don't have to use it often but when I do, I don't even notice the smell anymore. I am soooo glad I didn't dismiss it!!
I was very disappointed to find out that when this new formula of blemish therapy came out that is was half, if not smaller, than the old formula container. Also, the price has not changed. Thinking that bare minerals is great stuff (I have used their products for several years now), I trusted that the new formula would be better, thus placing it on auto delivery, but less frequent then before. I get it to only find out that it is smaller! Now I have to hope it lasts me three months. :'(. Hopefully, they fix this soon...... As for if this new formula works better, I'll let you know in a few weeks or sooner.
Blemish Therapy - Miracle
I bought this for myself, but my teen daughter (13) has scooped it up for herself. It's the best pimple remedy I've ever used without leaving a film, tightening, burning or any of the other side effects of the cremes and goops out there. I ordered three more to keep up to demand in my house, perhaps BE could make a larger container?!
Please increase the size of Blemish Therapy
I love love love this product but don't think I can afford to keep using it. I go through it so fast and now that the size is so much smaller I feel like I am always buying it. At $18.00 I just can't keep up. I am afraid I am going to have to go to another brand.
I don't understand why they did this. I am very disappointed.
I only gave 4 hearts because of the size issue.
Bring back the larger size
My daughter and granddaughter use this product and this small size will be gone in no time. Please bring back the larger size or supersize it. I use it occassionaly for break out and it takes care of them in a short time.
The product works on clearing up blemishes once they appear, but I have not noticed it prevents them at all. Would like to see the larger size back, or a lower price. I do not need a new brush with every jar either. Could reduce the price without the additional cost of a brush. Good product. Bad marketing.
Bring back large Blemish product
My daugher uses the Blemish Therapy product and loves it. Last time I ordered I was surprised to see that it is one half the size it used to be. A large majority of people I believe who use this product are probably young adolescents and the last thing they need is to have the price of a product that they love and works for them raised. I'm sure you know they will go to any lengths to have a clearer face. Is there a reason tht the product's price went up? The product is great my daughter says, but also you don't need a new brush each time. I have used the other products for years and love it! Please lower the price of the Blemish Therapy! Thanks.
LOVE IT THOUGH PRICEY
The product itself is really awesome. It is super drying so only use it on acne! I think that the reason for the cost is that the brush is included every time. Maybe if the brush was no included and the amount of power would be more it would be a better deal. All in all though the powder really does work.
