I've used this product before they changed the packaging and I loved it. After starting to use this new version of the product my face started to develop bumps. My skin is acne prone but once I stopped using it the bumps decreased dramatically and are starting to go away. I wish they would have just left this product the way it was.

I have been using this product for sometime now and just love it. I love how my skin looks when I wake up after having put it on the night before. My skin is acne prone and this has helped with my complexion. My acne scars are fading away a lot faster than they normally do and I am not so sure about minimizing my pores for I have not seen a big difference in that. My skin is a lot more smoother and even. I will continue using this product but I just wish it would be cheaper. As for giving it only 4 stars, I would prefer the packaging to be different as in the brush but separate from the item just like they did with the blemish.

THEY ARE NOT DISCONTINUING THIS PRODUCT!!!

For everyone who is probably panicking about the company discontinuing this product or any rare essential products let me just tell you they aren't. I talked to a sales person at one of their local stores here and she informed me that they are only changing the packaging and that is why there is a sale going on. So don't worry and don't feel like you need to stock up.
Now the review:
I want to a local store and the sales person actually tried this product on me and let me tell you it felt refreshing and nice. I have acne and was looking for a cleanser that wouldn't irritate my skin and was natural. I like the fact that this cleanser is in powder form since you get to control the texture, whether you want it as a cleanser, a exfoliator, or to use as a mask. I am very optimistic about this product and hopefully it doesn't fail me.

Quality of the brush ...
I was wondering how good the quality of this brush is. I know with some of the other brushes they shed pretty easily and would like to know if this brush does as well.

How do you use the Clearing Complex in your daily regimen?
Do you use the Clearing Complex before or after you put your moisturizer on? Do you put BE makeup over it? Is it possible to use this before the Pure Transformation Night Treatment?

Is this cleanser oil-free?
I have combination skin, but any cleansers that are too rich seem to cause break outs.
I have oily and acne prone skin. This product did not make me break-out at all. It left my skin feeling clean and refresh. You can always try and see if you can get a sample of this product to see how your skin reacts to it.

Does this make acne-prone skin worse?
I have really acne-prone (cystic, blackheads) skin will it make my it look worse??
I have acne prone skin and no it didn't make my skin worse. After washing my face with this product, my face felt clean and refresh. It didn't dry out my skin or make my oily skin worst. I really do like this product.

how would you compare the rare minerals moisturizer to the new moisturizer
How would you compare the rare minerals moisturizer to the new moisturizer?
I loved the old version of this product. It moisturized my skin perfectly and having oily skin it is hard to find one that doesn't make my skin worst but after using the newer version that is what happened. I have acne prone skin but this new moisturizer caused me to have bumps on my face and once I stopped it dramatically decreased.

Do you use this over or under your makeup?
I'm looking for a facial mist to set my minerals makeup once it's applied.
I had this product used on me when I want to the boutique to have my make-up done. The person who did my make-up would use it as the finishing product over the make-up. I am pretty you can experiment with using this product underneath or over your make-up.

The difference between Clear and the Light & Medium Night Treatments on my face
I am a faithful user of the Night Treatment for 2 years using both the light and medium shades. I never go to bed without applying it. I recently switched to clear and after using for 2 months I noticed something different in my skin. It didn't feel as smooth and the Treatment was not absorbing into my face. I then switched back to the medium and within 2 nights my face felt silky again. This got me investigating why the difference. I see now that the ingredients in the Clear are different than the others. After reading the other questions and answers on the Clear Night Treatment, I'm still uncertain. Does anyone know where I can get a definitive answer? I'm regretting that I stocked up on the Clear at the closeout sale. Thanks for any information.
If you look at the ingredients carefully for the different colors of this product you would realize that the ingredients are a bit different for each one. This is probably due to the color but in clear the second item on the list is corn starch modified. Only clear version of this product contains this particular ingredient. That may be the reason why for the difference you see.

ingredients change - corn starch 2nd in list?
They said that the formula did not change, but the old formula 2nd ingredient was vit C, and the new formula is corn starch modified, which is a drying agent not for skin over 40. Why did it change?

Thanks
Only the clear version of this product contains corn starch modified. My suggestion is that if you want to avoid the corn starch use the color versions.

same ingredients? corn starch 2nd ingredient
The old formula's 2nd ingredient was vit C and the new formula's 2nd ingred. is corn starch modified, which is a very drying ingredient. I thought it was the same formula.

Thanks
Only the clear version of this product contains corn starch modified. If you use the color versions it does not.

Clear right treatment for my skintone?
My skintone is Medium Beige and I wonder if the clear shade would be fine with
my skintone or if I should go with the Medium shade.
I would personally suggest you go to the store and see which color best matches your skin tone. As for using clear, I would personally avoid it since the second ingredient for that specific product is corn starch modified.

Is this website wrong when listing the ingredients for this product?
When I click the link for the Pure Transformation Night Treatment, I scroll down and this is what is listed for the ingredients: "Mica, Corn Starch Modified, Illite, Barium Sulfate, Ascorbic Acid, Zinc Stearate, Silica, Soil Minerals, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ectoin, Cyclopia Intermedia (Honey Bush) Extract, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Extract, Rosemarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Extract, Aspalathus Linearis (Roobios) Leaf Extract. (+/-): Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)." However, Pattymouth answered 2 questions regarding the ingredients and said BOTH times that Corn Starch Modified is NOT an ingredient. Is the website incorrect about this product or is Pattymouth?
If you click on the different shades of color you will notice that the page refreshes and everything changes from the comments to the ingredient list. Only the clear version of this product contains corn starch modified while the color ones don't. So if you want to avoid corn starch I would suggest using one of the color version that best matches your skin tone.
