Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
I love bare minerals products but this weekend I was finally introduced to a cleanser that I actually like. I've tried many cleansers before this is the first one at bare minerals where I have felt my face is clean of all oils and makeup. Other cleanser have left my skin feeling dry or itchy, this product with bare minerals is my perfect soultion. My skin not only feels clean but soft as well, no other product has done that for me. Once I'm out of the 30 day trial I will be purchasing the larger cleanser. Thank you for such a wonderful product!
Nice product, but not effective in all cases
I truly had high hopes for this product. I have terrible, acne-prone skin and have tried most suggestions, e.g. cleansers, toners, topical gels/creams, prescriptions, etc., hoping for positive results. I have used this product consistently for almost two months, but to no avail.
I will say that I LOVE the way this product feels when I use it. However, I have just not had much success. I think if you have skin with occasional breakouts, this would probably be a good product to try. But my skin is consistently a mess (broken out), ad it didn't help very much.
Pros: feels great, VERY gentle exfoliation, leaves skin feeling soft after you wash it off, don't need to use very much at a time.
Cons: it simply did not improve the condition of my skin. This alone outweighs the pros.
The gentlest cleanser exfoliator out there!
I use this every day to wash my face and clear makeup. It really does what it says it's supposed to. My skin is smooth, clean, and doesn't feel like it was rubbed raw like some exfoliates do. Just rub it together with a few drops of warm water and massage onto your face. After you rinse you will feel the difference!
I have been using this product for a few weeks and really like it. My face feels clean and I can make a thin or thick paste. It's gentle enough for me to use everyday and I follow up with the Glow Pads.
So sorry.. But
So sorry but this cleanser has made my skin breakout in large areas. I love the makeup line but this cleanser is lacking. Plus I have oily skin and my skin never felt cleansed.
Comes out like a powder, then turns into a paste-like feel once activated with water, then dissolves into the skin once its rubbed in. Never itchy or scratching the skin! I use this to combat acne/pimples, discolorations, and blackheads. Skin is soft and oh-so clean afterwards! This also lasts me a long time!! It's worth the price!
This product is great! My skin looks better then ever! I use this with the blemish treatment and pure transformation night treatment and I have stopped needing concealor. I have never found anything that works so well to keep my skin clear, even and moisturized. I don't even need a moisturizer anymore, after only 4 weeks! Great stuff!
Great and has Multiples ways to use it
I have been using the exfoliating treatment for almost 2 years now and I can truly say that I love it. This product is gentle enough to use daily for both day and night, or it can be used once every few days as strictly an exfoliant. When i first started using the product I was fascinated with the idea of using a powder instead of a cream as a fascial cleanser. Then i realized there were so many different ways you could use this product. By adding some water to the powder you could create a nice smooth and creamy lather that is gentle yet throughly cleans your face. After my face doesn't feel dry instead it feels smooth, soft and just enough moisture. The powder can also be used as a fascial mask by adding a tiny bit of water, applying to your face and letting it sit anywhere between 5-10 minutes. I do this every few days. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. I couple this with the deep cleansing foam and have found the two to be a great combination together.
Not effective for me
I started using this in conjunction with the Deep Cleansing Foam and moisturizer and just wasn't impressed. I didn't feel like it was doing much and after a week of using this combo of products, started to have breakouts. I'm 43 and having pimples showing up daily just didn't work for me! It went back to the store, along with the full-size Deep Cleansing Foam. I've gone back to the department store brand I'd been using, added in their exfoliating scrub and am much happier with the results. I'm glad it works for some, just not for me.
I must say that I absolutely love this cleanser more than the deep foaming cleanser and the facial cleanser. (and thats saying quite a lot) My face feels so squeaky clean afterwards without feeling dry or tight or anything like that. I was very skeptical looking at the powder in the bottle and then washed my face with it and was like WHAT?!?!? This has become my favorite cleanser.
