Yes this product is small but it doesnt take much to cover problem spots. Ill admit the smell is a little bit funky but honestly you only smell it when you apply it and i think it smells like a type of herb i use when i make homemade pizza sause (tho i cant remember the name at the moment)
the only problem i have with it is that i have bumps beside my nose that ive had for months that wont go away. i was hoping this would help but it didnt. it did however fix my chin in about a day (which ive been trying to fix for a few weeks now)
the second i run out of this stuff i will def be buying some more
This product has no doubt helped me with my acne and I hope it will continue to help with reducing and controlling it. Though by reading some reviews, I can say, I'm here to testify that this wasn't exactly a miracle overnight product for me. Actually, I think my skin actaully got worse before it got better, but that's, odly enough, a good thing to look for in a product for your skin. As I've said, I am very happy with this buy and the redness was decreased dramatically over the first week while wearing it, and I found myself able to extract stuff from more of the bigger cysists and pimples on my chin, which released alot of pressure. Thanks for changing my life, one grain of powder at a time :)
This absolutely works!!
This product is so amazing.... I usually break out maybe a couple times a month and as soon as I feel one coming on, I dab this on the spot. If I wake up feeling that I'm getting a pimple, I put it on under my makeup and then again before bed. This usually prevents It from actually even turning into a full on pimple.
This product is especially good when used before the blemish gets too large or the skin is broken on it. Just a little dab on the inflamed area for a few days and it disappears. Love it!
I have tried everything out there to get rid of my acne. Proactiv, over the coutner and prescription products, and nothing has ever worked like this! I use it with the exfoliating treatment cleanser and pure transformation night treatment and my skin looks great! No need for moisturizer or concealer after 4 weeks. Awesome product!
great acne treatment for pregnant women
I used this product while I was pregnant with my daughter. I have oily skin and tend to break out a lot. Most acne treatments contain salicylic acid which isn't safe to use during pregnancy. Sulfur acne treatments are considered safe so I was happy to find a product I could use for my acne during my pregnancy. Works great, can be worn easily under makeup. What a life saver!
Very pleased with this product!
I really love this product. I'm somewhat new to Bare Escentuals and so pleased with this product. I can apply it to a blemish and it'll be gone the next day! Only gave 4 stars because the size of the container is very small. Granted, it's just one blemish at a time, but I think a little more would be better. Just my 2 cents! I have gotten 2 people to purchase and they're also very pleased from what I'm told.
The best thing ever!!
I absolutely love love love!!! This product is crazy good. One day you get a blemish and the next day its gone. Can't find anything wrong with it. It's a must buy.
Great healer for blemishes
Great concealer for raised pimples
And overall great treatment
I received this product and use it on the rare breakout that I may have and it really worked, so I got it for my daughter who also uses it. I tried it on an emerging fever blister/canker sore on the edge of my lip and this is the first product to stop the blister from forming. I can actually go out in public the days following the start of one of these annoying blisters because they don't fully develop!
Great product, poor size
I love this product and have used it for years. Over the years, however, the size has gone down and the price has gone up. The first one I got lasted me probably about a year and was at least twice the size as they currently offer. The last one I got lasted me a few months. I must say I'm disappointed that they only offer this small size now - especially since I still have the container for the first one I ever got (i reuse them as containers for random things instead of throwing them away) and it was about the size of the regular foundation they sell now. Why not give us bigger options??
Im loving this product
I don't usually write reviews, but I had to get on here today and write one for this product. I am a newer customer of BE products and am working on my supply. I received this product yesterday and decided that I would use it last night before going to bed just to test it out. I have very problem skin; cystic acne to be exact and have used anything and everything from Proactive Solution to antibiotics. I even use sulfur-based products but I have to say, the reviews on here are dead on. I woke this morning with blemishes still, however, they we less noticeable and smaller than last night and I was actually able to cover them today with my usual product. This was not the case yesterday! I don't know what all is in this product, but it really works and I would recommend it for anyone with problem skin that needs that extra push during the day and at night for healing. One thing to mention is that I have extremely sensitive skin and I experienced no redness or irritation what so ever. Don't hesitate to try this product; it really does work.
I have really bad skin this product heals the pimples, conceals, and moisturizer at the same time!!! Best product ever!
Keeps Blemishes at Bay
This product is wonderful, as are all BM products! I tend to break out if I stress too much or forget to wash my makeup off a few nights in a row. With the Blemish Therapy, I can keep blemishes under control at any time! I apply this under my foundation and as the last step in my nighttime routine, and it works great at keeping pimples from popping up in the most unwanted places. The key is being consistent with this product - however, if I use it too much, too often in one area, it can dry out my skin. When this happens, I wait one or two days before applying it again and it's back to working perfectly!
This stuff is amazing
I will never ever be caught with out this product. I had the biggest, red, sore pimple on my nose and used this under my foundation then again at night before bed and it is gone. I just can not believe how well this works. It is amazing. Love, love and love it! I really have very few breakouts but this just zaps any I do have. Dries them right up and takes the soreness out.
I've been using this for years in the am under my foundation and as my last step in my night time regime. Today I tried mixing it in with my moisturizer so I can get the benefits all over my face. I love how gentle it is yet it is very effective.
Nothing ever works for me....
I went to the BE boutique near my home in New York. I had a fairly large pimple in the crease of my nose and cheek. The sales associate put the blemish therapy on me and said I would see a huge difference in the morning. I thought to myself "Yeah right!" Well... I woke up the next morning and the pimple was BARELY noticeable. And there was NO redness what so ever. I couldn't believe it. I went back that day and bought the product. As always I am so pleased with BE!!
Pretty freakin' amazing!
I just received my order, which included this. I used it at night & by morning, the blemish was GONE! It stinks to high heaven, but this stuff really works! You can also use it BEFORE applying your foundation, which is very cool. I'm sold.
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!
