My favorite foundation!

Pros: long lasting, natural finish
I have been using this when it first debut and I love it! I have oily skin and suffer from redness, large pores and acne scars. This is a light to medium coverage foundation so I get a nice coverage when I apply 2 layers with my fingers. If I need any additional coverage I will use my bareminerals cream pot concealer. My pores and other flaws look minimized and it leaves such a nice natural skin finish. I got rid of all my other foundations and will be keeping this one. It is amazing!!

It is so important to get color matched and use the less is more application as this formula has amazing full coverage. I love it because it is so quick and easy to apply.
I had used shade Medium Beige in the original and matte and now use Medium Tan in the Ready foundation. And if I get a little color in the summer I will switch to the Ready in Golden Tan. I have oily/acne prone skin and this is my favorite foundation! It has brought me back to Bareminerals.

I have always thought I needed to get full coverage and I had been using the precision brush with the Ready foundation and at times it would look cakey. Even with following Leslie's tips on application I sometimes would look like I was wearing foundation. Recently I decided to try it with the Flawless face brush and now I love it every time! I realized full coverage is too much for me and I just needed to change my brush for the natural finish I was looking for.

I use the Ready foundation and been using it with the Precision brush for over a year however sometimes I can look a little cakey with all that coverage so I decided to try the Flawless brush. I like the finish look I get from this brush better. However the brush hairs are not as soft and they shed a lot so I only gave it 3 stars.

Natural looking brows
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
I always preferred brow pencils over powders because of my unruly brows. This brow pencil gives me the most natural looking brows. The dark universal color is perfect for my dark brown hair but it is the spoolie that takes the product to a whole new level. Make sure after you pencil them in go over it with the spoolie to brush out the product for the most natural look. Application is quick and my brows never look harsh. I love it and hope that this will be part of the permanent line.

I wear Ready Medium Tan and the SA suggested the Skinny Dip bronzer. I was going to purchase High Dive but I let her try them both on, she was right the Skinny Dip gave a more natural look I was going for. I am very happy with my purchase.

Pros: great value, great quality, great coverage, natural finish
I love this kit. I am already a fan of the concealer since it covers without looking heavy or cakey. The well rested highlighter gives the most natural glow. Comes with a full size concealer which retails for $20 so for $5 extra you get the amazing highlighter and small concealer brush. A great value!

Pros: silky smooth
I own The Truth and Happy Place and they are my favorite eyeshadow palettes. The colors are gorgeous and don't leave any fall out. They feel so silky smooth and are easy to blend.

How much concealer is included in the package?
Is it the same size as the other one you buy online, 2 grams?
Yes it is full size. Only the well rested highlighter and concealer brush are smaller sizes.

Is this product also a sunblock? If not, how do I got about putting on sunscreen in addition to this product, i.e. before or after?
I want sun protection in addition to the faux tan
It doesn't not contain sunblock. So once the faux tanner is dry I would apply sunblock over it.

If using in the morning, do I use after mosturizer?
When using Faux Tan Face can I use all my other applications first like toner and moisturizer then apply Faux Tan?
Yes you can use it over your moisturizer or save a step and mix it in with your face moisturizer. I have oily skin and I just use this as my face moisturizer and then apply my primer and foundation on top.

Does this serve as a moisturizer too? Also, does it have that odor typical of sunless tanners?
I use a product that is a facial moisturizer and sunless tanner. I like the convenience of the 2-in-1, but after a few hours, I can smell that odor that is typical of sunless tanners. Perhaps that is unavoidable, but would love to find a product that doesn't have that smell.
I have oily skin and I just use this as my moisturizer. I have a sensitive nose and I don't smell the typical self tanner scent.

If I am currently using the purifying facial cleanser and bought the exfoliating treatment cleanser, how often should I use the exfoliating cleanser?
I wash my face twice a day and would like to start exfoliating. I am not sure how often I should exfoliate my face or if I need both cleansers twice a day.
the exfoliating cleanser is very gentle. You can use it everyday in the AM and use Purifying at night when you remove your makeup. Also you can mix them together and use them that way if you want to. I also love to use the exfoliating cleanser as a mask once a week.

Will this cleanser break my skin out with blemishes (acne)?.. and will my skin be oily later in the day?
My skin is acne prone, I am nervous to try anything because of this.
I have very acne prone skin and I haven't had any trouble with any of the BE cleansers.

Ingredients?
First, let me say that I love BE products, and I've been pleased with every item I've tried so far, including the Purifying Facial Cleanser, Purely Nourishing Moisturizer, and Firming Eye Treatment in this line. My question, though, is about ingredients:

I'm trying to figure out what I "should" be using at age 25 for the best skin care. I'm reading a lot that for 25-35, cleansers with salicylic acid and masks/peels with glycolic acid are still best (even though I know the word "acid" is scary to a lot of people). This product has neither, and I'm just curious ... Does anyone else subscribes to this kind of ingredient loyalty? Does it really make much difference, or are these things worth seeking out? Thanks!
The new Intensive Glow Pads may be something you might be interested in. It does contain glycolic acid.

Blemish Therpy
Can this also be used as a conceler?I saw where it says AVOID eye area, but didnt know if I could use to cover dark circles or if I need an additional concealer? TY

I would not use the blemish therapy as an under eye concealer since the skin clearing ingredients can dry and irritate the delicate skin around the eyes. I would suggest well rested or one of the bisque spf20 concealers.
