Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
Wanted to love, acne breakouts
I really wanted to like this product as it felt great applying and while on my face. but after about a week of use I started having cystic acne break outs. I love the rest of the skin care line I use from bare minerals and their make up. this just didn't work for my skin.
The new formula is clear and doesn't seem as smooth and nice as before. What happened to this product, the old formula felt silky and soft and this new product seems watered down and doesn't feel nice to the touch. Does it work as good??? Doesn't seem like it will. I am not happy with my purchase and will not be buying again in the future. Why do they have to mess with a good product when they have it, new and improved?? I think absolutely not.
Skeptic at first.
With so many products on the market from high-end ($) to drug store (<$) I have tried several. So on the recommendation by my consultant I tried it. He was so right. It make your skin feel softer and brighter almost immediately. I have been using this for 4 weeks and the difference is amazing. I wish that we would have take before and after pictures to show how well it works.
I received a sample of this with a recent order. I usually use a different product for night time but I decided to give this a try the other night. Boy do I regret it! I woke up with several new pimples and itchy flaky skin! I do not and never have had sensitive skin and I have never had a reaction from any product I have tried. So glad I got the chance to sample this before blowing $50!!
Love this product!!!
I have very dry skin, especially during the winter season. This product really made the difference in my skin. I have being use it for about 3 moths every night, I feel my skin much hydrated the next morning.
I wish my skin loved this
I have been getting a few samples here and there with my BE orders, being new to bare minerals when my face starting breaking out with cystic pimples i wasn't sure what to blame. After not using this product my skin started clearing up, i thought my skin was just getting used to the foundation, until i received my last package and another sample of the serum Now i know what did it, i have another cystic pimple forming on my chin after 2 nights of using the serum. While this makes my skin feel like velvet im glad i never purchased it like i wanted to. If your interested in this product make sure you receive a sample first!!
I barley ever write reviews on products but I felt strongly compelled to do so on this one. This serum is GREAT. I've been using it for about a month now and I see a huge difference in my skin. My little patch of acne has cleared up, my skin is hydrated & it's even helped to fade light acne scars as well as improve texture. I would highly recommend this product it really does do wonders for your skin.
I never would have thought this would work so well
I only used this because I got a sample with something else I ordered. I've been using BM for over five years now and love the makeup, cleanser and other things but wouldn't have spent $50.00 on something like this. Wow! Am I glad I got that sample. The very next morning I noticed a change in my skin. I'm 61 and lately noticed my skin was getting more dry. Part of the reason is that I have gas heat and it does dry your skin out but I also felt my skin was changing from always being oily to being dry and almost flaky:( I followed the directions for the Night Serum and was truly amazed at how my face felt the next morning. Don't hesitate to try it because it really does make a BIG difference!
I have been using this product regularly with great results. I recently got a tattoo on my wrist and thought this product would soothe that sensitive skin. Not only did it eliminate the irritation of the skin, but it healed the tattoo site in less than a week with absolutely no flaking, drying or itching. I will never be without this serum!!
I've actually had this product for awhile, but for some reason I'm not good about trying skin care products as much as make up. So finally after months of having this I decided to try it one night before I went to bed. My skin gets flakey and dry at times, especially during the dry, winter, cold season. I use about a dime size for my whole face, and it's like a serum but a bit thinner in film. I have a little redness on my cheeks and in the morning the redness was gone, and it absolutely helped my dry, crackling skin get back to normal. I was really surprised after one use that my skin was looking this way. So now I use it as my nightly ritual...I love it!
I've used this product ever since it came out! I recently ordered it again because I ran out... I have to say I'm very disappointed with my order!!! It seems as if they reformulated the product, it seem like its been watered down and doesn't moisturize like it use to... It even made me break out.. This stuff use to be amazing... Please Bare Escentuals make this stuff like you use to, don't cheap out!!
Will only enhance your skin care regimen
I originally thought I didn't need this product because of my age but once I tried it I was hooked. This restored balance and harmony to my skin and eliminated 75% of breakouts for me. The others intake care of with the powder treatment. I used to use a quarter sized dollop which was more than recommended but after a couple months I only needed a dime size amount. Your skin will let you know how much it needs. Worth it for what the product does. This and the night treatment are my splurge beauty items.
The first time i used this product I wasn't sure if it was all a con, I've seen these things before and never believed it would do much good. HOW MUCH MORE WRONG COULD I HAVE BEEN!! I mean, I have bad acne and my skin was so fresh after just one use!
i was talked into buying this wonder treatment by a sales gal at one of the stores and i'm so glad i got it. i have oily skin on top of my nose/forehead and super dry skin on my cheeks, outer nose area and in between my eyebrows. yes i have crazy combo skin nightmares. this serum evened out the combo dry/oily skin and hydrated it in one use. i cleansed my skin, used the serum, put on the combo moisturizer and next morning i woke up to a total difference in my skin. was a little apprehensive about buying a little bottle for $50 but a little certainly goes a long way. super happy i got this stuff, you will see a difference in just one night!
Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
I was excited to use this product because of all the great reviews I read, and I was not disappointed! The first time I put it on (before I even went to bed!) my face was softer, looked brighter and more luminous, and I felt like I could walk out of the house without makeup! (which is not something I ever do!) It always makes my face look bright, clear and luminous the next morning; I wouldn't go a night without it! A lot of people are concerned about the price for the amount, but it really does last a long time! When I first started using it I used more than a "pearl-sized amount," but after a few days I needed to use less and less as my skin retained all its hydration.
I usually use this in conjunction with Renew & Hydrate Eye Cream and Purely Nourishing Cream, but I have also used it on its own and loved it!
Tip: Sometimes in the morning after I wash my face I will put more on under my makeup for an extra-luminous look!
At my age, deep wrinkles are a challenge. For a month, I have used Active Cell Renewal Serum, along with Multi-Wrinkle Repair, every night and I can see a noticeable improvement. Deep wrinkles are less obvious and smaller wrinkles are barely there anymore. My skin is much softer and healthier looking.
I love how my skin looked after only one use!
I just recently purchased it and I love it. I just started using more complex treatments for my skin than going to the local pharmacy and getting some generic moisturizer. The girl at the store, Karolinne, was very helpful and completely understood what I needed. I am a fan of Bare Mineral Make-up since they were just on TV and I thought their skin products would be as magical as their makeup and I was right! After one use I was excited to see my skin smooth and it did not feel heavy or oily! Love the product!
Worth the extra money!
I was a little leery about trying such an expensive product, but I have found that it is worth the cost. If I had shelled out a bunch of money, but only saw minimal impact I wouldn't be writing this rave review. I noticed a remarkable difference in skin hydration the morning after I first used the product. The very next morning! In addition to the increased moisture retention of my skin, and an overall increase in softness, I have seen a positive impact on the acne I have been struggling with. I'm not sure if the increased hydration has made increased production of my skins natural oil unnecessary thereby alleviating most acne issues or if there is a compound in the formulation that actively targets acne precursors, but I'm sold either way. I'm surprised and impressed with the expected and unexpected results I have garnered from the use of the product. Give it a try!
But a great product helps with my acne scars , texture, and makes skin so soft
Miracle in a bottle!
My combination skin was going crazy this winter. I tried this and honestly had amazing results! It helped sooth my skin & helps natural on. A little goes along way & a full-size bottle lasts me 5 months. I was hesitant to buy this at first because of the price but this & the pure transformation night treatment are the best things I have ever used on my skin. Seriously try this, you will love it!
Extroardniary lil miracle in a bottle
I have been using this for about 2 weeks now, and All I can say is EXTROARDINARY! I wake up, my face is firmer, vibrant, awake, the lil lines I had around my eyes are GONE! the sun spots are GONE! I am sooo addicted! This is sooo worth the price! YOU WILL LOVE IT! I love you BE!!! Thankyou for all your wonderful products, I do not use anything else. :)
Salvation for Acne!
I was initially very skeptical of trying this. When it was released I was just in my mid-twenties & didn't think I needed an anti-aging product, despite being told by a doctor that I had low skin elasticity & once I started to age, it would be irreparable & drastic. But I went into my local boutique & heard an employee rave about how it had completely helped her acne, which I could physically see. I never grew out of my acne after puberty & while it got exponentially better after switching to the Bare Escentuals skincare line, I was still suffering from very rare breakouts. So, the employees kindly gave me a few samples & 2 weeks later & was back in the boutique buying my own bottle & have used it every night since its release. Now my breakouts are COMPLETELY gone & my skin looks beautiful & smooth. I HIGHLY recommend it for people that suffer from acne, regardless of their age.
Great for my dry/oily skin
I wasn't sure if this would work for me or not, but I gave it a chance and it has been great. My skin is usually really dry on my nose and cheeks while at the same time being oily on the sides of my nose and on my chin. After using this one night, no more flakes and no more oily! It's been fantastic, and I definitely notice the nights that I forget to use it - very dry patches the next day. It might be a steep price, but for me, it's worth it.
My favorite product !
I received a sample of this in one of my monthly shipments and had tucked it away. I completely forgot about it until one day I found it after we had moved and I was unpacking at our new home. I had to look up how to use it. After a few uses, I had to buy the full size bottle. Now, I always have it on hand, and I'll never go another day without it. It truly is the fountain of youth in a bottle !
I love this product
I use this as a part of my nightly ritual. It's light and makes my skin soft and smooth. I could tell a difference in my skin after the first night of using this product. My pores are visibly smaller, skin smoother and brighter. It's worth the money and it only takes a little to cover your face. It's great for my sensitive skin!
Best Solution EVER!!!
I was worried about this product, because it seems like a product that older women would use (I'm only 16). I bought this at one of the boutiques and the women explained that absolutely anyone could use it. I trusted them, and they were right. My skin looked absolutely amazing after just one night! It was softer and had more elasticity. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone.
I have had this product for 1 week and my skin is amazing! My skin is so soft and smooth!
OK, but not active enough for me to renew
I was bummed by this product. I had been using a similar product that was of a similar texture by one of BM's biggest competitors. This one was much cheaper, so I gave it a solid run. However, did not see or feel the results I had been under the competing serum. I found the other complementary products did not apply easily over this one, & all the instructions said this was the one that needed to be first on skin. The dropper is also to big & delivers too much serum.
So I held out until my sale date to purchase this. The employee in the store introduced it to me when I got my first foundation match done and I thought it made my skin feel incredible, but I just couldn't afford it. I had purchased a full line of BM makeup for my wedding, but my skin is very sensitive and acne-prone (with lots of flaking and dry patches... it can't make up its mind) and I felt like this was the missing step in my skincare regimen. For the first two weeks, my skin looked and felt great... luckily, the wedding was in that first two weeks. SInce then, my skin has been breaking out horribly and the only thing that has changed was adding the ACR Serum. I'm going to take a two-week break to see if it helps, but as of now, I'm incredibly disappointed.
So far, so good
I have only had this for a day, but after one night of using it, I woke up the next morning and my face felt soft and even looks even better, I'm excited to see how this will make my skin look!
