Pros: controls shine, matte
I purchased this in tinted and I love it. I never carried the mineral veil in loose powder around because of the mess. This is perfect, since a few swipes and my afternoon shiny T zone is gone. My face looks matte and does not remove my foundation. Very Good.

Pros: hydrating, silky
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.

Amazing Dark Circle Eraser!

Pros: erases dark circles
I normally have dark shadows under my eyes but since I have been sick for the past month I look like I have been punched! Nothing I purchased was working so I decided to try this after reading all the positive reviews. I was a bit skeptical because I am African American and this product looks very light. (I use Goldan Tan foundation for reference). Well, let's say I was pleasantly surprised when I used it for the first time. You really do only need a teeny amount. I pat a small amount under my eye with a concealer brush. It looks very chalky and I thought the foundation would never cover it but it does. And it covers wells! So well I use it on other blemishes on my face before my foundation and I have magically clear skin. Great product. This should last me forever also since it comes in a pot larger than eye shadows.

Works on oily skin

Pros: nourishing, controls oil
I have extremely oily skin and never even looked at the sample of this moisturizer for weeks after I had been using the exfoilating cleanser. Since that cleanser worked so well amd my skin was clearing up i decided to try this moisturizer. It works extremely well on my oily skin! It controls the oil but still adequately moisturizes my face. In fact when i dont use it my face is much oiler. I have never bought combination skin moisturizer before, instead opting for oil control moisturizers. I honestly think this work better than anything. As with all BE products a little goes a long way! This will be your last moisturizer.

Pros: effective, rich lather, clean scent
I had been previously been using the exfoliating cleanser in the morning and the purifying cleanser at night however I've always wanted to try this cleanser for the great reviews, and because I didn't like how the purifying cleanser didn't foam up enough for me. Well after one use I am hooked. It takes a small amount of this product and a few drops of water to activate the foam power! The foam removes all your makeup easily and deep cleans your face without stripping. I am left with clean soft skin. I will still keep the exfoliating cleanser in my morning routine, but this cleanser has definately become my makeup remover. This product will also last a long time because you do not have to use a lot. Great value!

Pros: long lasting, terrific shade
I was so excited when I got my primer shadow in bronzed twig! It's the perfect color and glided on easily. I use a small brush to apply and depending if it's day or night I can layer my look to be more or less dramatic. This product lasts all day without any creases. It's THE best eyeshadow product on the market. I apply the brightening primer as my all over color then the bronzed twig shade as an accent. I will definitely purchase other shades! LOVE IT!!!

Pros: essential
I have extremely oily skin and purchased the Prime Time Oil Control formula first and while I think it did it's job, I felt like most other reviewers that the sticky flaky film was hard to deal with. This product however lives up to it's promise. When applied it feels almost like a silky powder on your skin. One squirt will do. My face feels soft and incredibily smooth. My foundation goes on smoothly and easily and lasts! Today is my first time using this and I played nine holes of golf and my foundation stayed put and while I was a little oily nothing like I would be without this product. Great, I am impressed. For your reference, i am using the Gentle Exfoliantant face wash, the bare vitamins skin rev-er upper, BE medium tan foundation, warmth, and mineral veil.

Pros: works!
I used this product for the first time this morning and I think it does do what it says. I used exactly one squirt and applied before I used my moisturizer and primer. Today I noticed that my makeup lasted longer today and I only used mineral veil twice today. My face does seem smoother and more refined and for that I like it. I did notice however that I did have a slight peeling of the product but I am not sure if that was this one or the Prime Time Oil Control primer. (See my review for that). I think I need to play around with the amounts that I putting on. Currently one pump for each. I have extremely oily skin. Will let you all know!

Maybe I'm not using this right but...
I have ALL the bareMinerals skin care products (and I do mean ALL of them!) but I can't seem to get the hang of this one. Maybe I am using too much water but I don't feel ANY exfoliation going on here. Can anyone tell me what THEY do to FEEL results? Thanks!
I would say that you are using too much water. Sprinkle just enough to make it wet, like a paste then add a few more drops. The cleanser should foam a little and when applied it should feel a little scratchy. It won't feel like a traditional exfoilant but the longer that you keep rubbing it in your face the better it works. I use it in the shower and leave it one my face for the entire shower. Like the way it feels then.

Is this product worth buying and does it work well with the Matte Foundation?
I was just wondering, and considering after all of the reviews if i should try it. I saw the price: $18. Is it worth trying? I have the SPF 15 Matte Medium Beige Foundation; about to buy more, and wondering if I should try it and see if it would look good under the matte. Is it also good for oily skin and make it less oily while working with my acne. I also have seen noticeable changes in my skin while using bareMinerals Matte foundation. So I was wondering if it was REALLY worth buying.
I am new to BE makeup as of this week and I have definitely noticed that my skin seems a lot clearer. I just bought the blemish therapy and I use the matte foundation as well but I only use the blemish therapy at night. I suppose if your skin is light enough you could wear it under the foundation. The blemish therapy is a great buy. Check out the reviews, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

What color is the product?? Is it too dark for fair skin if used under makeup?? I have very sensitive, fair skin. Does it dry out the skin ??
How can I find out what shade it is?
It does not dry out my skin, and it is very light color. I have medium to dark skin and I could not wear it under makeup.

Do you wear the Blemish Therapy with the Bare Minerals make up or do you just wear it at night after you have washed your face?
I was wondering if it also works as a concealer or is it just a product used to help reduce blemishs? Can it be worn with your make up? And if so do you apply it first then your make up? Please help.
If you have light skin maybe you can wear it, but it is not really thick enough to be used as concealer in my opinion.

Does this product rub off at night on the pillow case?
I am interested in this product but wonder about how it stays on your face without rubbing off on the sheet or pillow case.
No it does not. Weird how it works. But it does.
