Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
Very Nice Product
Purchased to use along with the MD formulation moisture defense. The two together (I use both A.M. and P.M.) have provided a noticable firmness. Hoping the effects continue as I keep using them.
Had a sample of this, tonight after my exfoliating deep cleanser I put this on my face, followed by the moisturizer. Wow!!! Within minutes my face looked fresh, glowing, beautiful! My husband noticed right away! Off to buy a bottle!
Still on the fence
I have been using this serum for a couple of months to give it time to do it's thing. Unlike most people I haven't seen dramatic results. Maybe my skin wasn't as bad to begin with? What I have noticed is after a break out my skin heals faster. The blemish or scar disappears quickly. I still have more than 1/2 the bottle left so I'll continue to keep using this product.
I received this as a free sample and tried it out with the combination skin moisturizer. I could see a difference in my complexion OVERNIGHT! Smaller pore sizes, better texture, and any acne spots I had started to clear up immediately. I haven't stopped using it since and ordered it right away. A little goes a long way. Wonderful product!
Its okay, not very impressed with this product. The first week it seemed to be great then it seems like it stops working. I wouldn't pay the price again.
Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE thisproduct!!! I had just recently switched for another facial treatment product to Bare Minerals facial treatments. This night serum just amazes me! When I first bought this product, my intention was to use it at night hence "night serum." The BM clerk gave me a tip she learned from another BM customer .... not only use the night serum at night but using it during the day as well. Oh my!!! The results are awesome! The pores on my face have really dimished and my face has an absoute MATTE finish after applying the serrum and even more flawless skin after the make-up! I highly recommend this product to all BM users. Use it during the day as well as at night!
Even works for acne-prone skin!
I have had acne since my teens, and at 26 I still battle with break outs (including cystic acne). Most beauty products seem to irritate my skin and exacerbate my acne, but not BareMinerals! Since I love the makeup so much I decided to give the skin care products a try, and this was my first. Not only does it not make me break out, I believe it has even helped clear my skin! My skin is soft, moisturized, not greasy, and glowing. It has never looked healthier. I recently switched my daytime moisturizer to the BareMinerals moisturizer with SPF for combination skin and my face wash to the deep cleansing foam- these work just as well! The blemish therapy kit is a gold mine. What fantastic products! I only wish I knew about these as a teen. If you are on the fence, try it!
I really like this product. I have a combination skin/acne prone and this product helps a lot with the improvement of my skin. I highly recommend it!!!
Good for some skin but not good for all...
I gave up all of my skin care to try the whole BE skin care line. I'll agree that my skin has gotten softer and I think discolorations have faded. However, my acne (which is fairly mild) has gotten worse, not better. It's only been a week and I'll give it one more but if it's not better, I'll have to say goodbye to the skincare and just keep the foundation (which I love).
must have for mineral makeup users
Mineral makeup is the best thing for my skin. But over time it dries out my sensitive, combination skin. This night serum deeply hydrates my skin overnight. It is pricey, but it works! My skin hasn't been this clear, bright, even, smooth and youthful in a long time.
BE is my favorite skincare because you embrace what mineral makeup is and what it isn't. Your skin care line works with your beauty products as well as our skin. Don't change a thing about your skin care products. I'm a loyal customer for life!
I love to use this at night right before my moisturizer. My face just sucks it all right up and makes it so smooth. I absolutely contribute my smooth face to this stuff in relation with the moisturizer.
That's good serum for me
I used this serum about 5 days,
then I can find much good result of this serum.
My skin tone was more even and brighter than before.
Moreover, it is good for my sensitive skin.
I love this new product. I bought it because my face was very dry, red, and my pores were very large. I started using it the day i bought it, and let me tell you, i started noticing improvement in my skin, in about 4 days. i couldn't believe it, i was getting very frustrated with my skin, and thanks to this, my face looks flawless, i don't have to put on alot of powder in order to cover up my redness. I'm not dry anymore, i glow, look so much younger, my pores diminished, and my redness diminished also. I really don't know what i would of done, i'm just glad the girl that worked at BE helped me and told me about this. Go buy it, you guys won't regret it, i promise!!!!!
NOT ALL THAT!!!!!!!!!!!
I really wanted to love this... I gave it a month.. and the entire time I broke out with the nastiest acne... I took it back to the store and the employee said that I am not the only one, that several people returned the item because of the same reason... So if you are acne-prone BEWARE.. I broke out bad.. not 1 or 2 zits.. more like 10-15 cystic pimples... Im going to my dermatologist today and praying he can do something for me..
i love this product. I noticed a difference in my skin, the next day. Recommend for anyone who has dry skin.
This is the best serum ever. I have tried other serums with very little results. I had (now smooth skin) creepyness on the left side of my face GONE.. dry spots gone this is only with a few days of use. This was a real test siince I had received the sample bottle with my order. I have now ordered the full size. OH , Yes I am 63 and now have glowing skin.
THANK YOU for a great product
Absolutely Amazing - Extremely Gentle Yet Delivers
My skin is very sensitive: prone to breakouts, clogged pores, and I have mild rosacea. My skin tends to react to most skin care items but I've had great success with BE. I received a sample of this from the boutique and instantly knew I had to buy this. My skin is combo-dry as well as ultra sensitive and this helped add moisture without clogging my pores or leaving a film. After the first night I applied it, I noticed a difference: my skin was softer, it was more even toned, and my pores appeared smaller. After a few nights use, I had a few stobborn clogged pores on my cheeks become unlcogged (gross I know, but they were located in a spot where nothing seemed to help and most products I had tried in the past were too harsh for me to use). After using this, my BE foundation goes on smoother and I use less foundation than I usually do because this helps make my skin look more even toned. I love that this is a serum yet safe for sensitive skin, doesn't feel greasy, and doesn't feel like I have something sticky on my face. This delivers and is now a staple in my skin care routine!
I LOVE this!!
I have been using this for about a month now. I noticed a difference by the 4th MORNING...my pores were smaller, my t-zone wasn't as dry (it was almost normal!), and my skin is so much softer...silkier might be a better word. A little bit goes a very long way: one month and I'm not even through 1/4 of the bottle. My skin tone, my dry t-zone, my huge pores...my skin looks and feels amazing! LOVE this...bye bye drugstore nighttime brands forever...this serum is IT for me!
THE most soothing product available!
I LOVE active cell renewal. I have extremely sensitive skin with acne and this product works wonders!! It soothes redness and diminishes acne scars INSTANTLY all while giving A TON of concentrated moisture. Not greasy in the least bit. It is definitely worth the price. IT IS TRULY A MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE!
Would not purchase
My daughter and I both received samples as this product was recommended by the salesperson and I was not prepared to give them $50. After using my sample per instructions, I saw absolutely no difference. My daughter suggested I use her sample, thinking maybe I hadn't been using it for a long enough period of time to notice a difference. Here we are two months later and still NO DIFFERENCE. I absolutely love the makeup but I feel the skincare line is a waste of money
this is another must have in skincare regimen
I have noticed quite a difference in my skin since using bare escentuals. I don't ever review products because they often are not worthy of a review but this line is. I not only love the skincare I also love the make up. Something you just need to try for yourself!
specifically smaller pore size
clarity (less breakouts)
brighter more even tone
and what still needs improvement, I can fake it with the make up!!!
I have used this product for a week and could see a difference in the first day. My skin is softer, firmer, and more radiant than its ever been. I've tried other products from other makers, and with my skin being so sensitive, I would either break out in a rash or have blemishes. With this my blemishes are clearing up and I have had no breakouts. Most amazing product I have ever purchased. Thank you Leslie and Bare Escentuals.
Really like it but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE consider putting in a plastic BPH free bottle, I just shattered my full bottle on my tile bathroom floor :( now I have to go get more for another $50....NOT HAPPY.
I received a sample with my last boutique purchase and WOW! The second night my husband said "you're skin looks really good!" I tend to have dry skin, especially in the winter and this seems to be helping knock out some of that dryness and redness. I have a little left in my sample but will definitely be picking this up on my next visit to the boutique! If you're on the fence..go for it, I promise you won't be disappointed. And unlike some serums, I had immediate results!
You guys did it again!
I love the sample I recieved and notice such a difference almost overnight. I seriously don't know how BE continues to come up with such wonderful products.
Seeing some Improvement
Before I write this review I should tell you that all of my Skincare and makeup routines are all using bare mineral products. I purchased this serum mostly because of the reviews. I purposely waited 2 weeks before reporting on my experience to give the serum time to work. I wash my face with deep cleansing foam, I apply the serum, the combination mositurer and the pure transformation night treatment. After two weeks I do feel like my face is softer and smoother. Some lines I have on my forehead are a little less noticeable, but what I do seem to notice most is that a few dark spots I had from pimple breakouts seem to be a fading. That is a good thing. I have oily skin so I wasnt sure how this product would work for me since I don't need more moisture but I think this does work for me. The serum feels nice not too thick or greasy and is easily absorbed into the skin. I think it is a challenge to not use too much since it does absorb quickly. I also have noticed that I am not getting any new breakouts since using either. I will purchase again.
Everyone should have this serum.
This serum is amazing. My skin is healthier, more youthful, smoother and I don't use much foundation anymore because of the Serum. The whole Skin Care line is spectacular. It's pure, all natural, and the smell is smooth and refreshing.
Could not believe the difference
I have only been using BE for about 8 months. When I went into my local store to get another foundation, I received a sample of this. I looked at the price tag for the full size first and went WHOA! But, my friend convinced me to use the sample, and I am in love! My skin looks smoother, more even, and deeply hydrated. And the best part is that it did not make my oily areas more oily, or cause me to break out in the slightest. It just helps my moisturizer work that much better!
This Product is GREAT!!
I had ordered the sample for $5. I was having trouble with my skin not being as firm as in my 20's. After the first night I had started to see a difference. My skin was smoother, softer and makeup went on beautifully and lasted longer. After a week I was hooked. My skin has improved in firmness and my dark spots are getting lighter. LOVE this. I have used Bare Escentuals for over 6 yrs. now and will never use anything else EVER. Thanks BE for the best products and keep them coming.
Thrilled with this product
I have sensitive skin that tends to dryness, especially in the cold winter months. I've been dealing with dry, flaky, peely skin and have tried a number of products in recent months, and none have made a difference.
When I saw this from Bare Minerals I knew I had to give it a shot - I love the cleanser and moisturizer so figured I couldn't go wrong.
I didn't even begin to imagine that the flakiness I've had for months would be gone in 3 uses. Three!! My skin looks fresh and dewy, and I've even noticed the pores on my nose seem smaller. I'm hooked.
