Pros: evens skin tone., glammy award winner best foundation.
Congratulations on your seventh Glamour Magazine Glammy Award for Best Foundation for BareMinerals Original SPF15 Foundation as per the magazine's September 2011 issue.
I was once a special occasion only makeup wearer until I got my make under three weeks ago. I now use BareMinerals makeup and skin care religiously. It's lighweight, covers blemishes well, leaves my skin soft, radiant and all aglow plus my T-zone is not greasy even in the summer heat and pores barely visible. Even after I wash my makeup off at night with the Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser, my skin still feels soft and smooth like a baby's, a definite improvement from my dull lifeless skin prone to breakouts before BM.
Thank you and hope you come out with a Matte True Red Lipstick so I can replace the one I use from M** brand cosmetics.

Pros: baby soft skin., minimizes pores., non-drying., results after first use.
As soon as my beauty ambassador used this product to prep my skin for my make under, I wanted to get it right away. I only had enough for my basic kit, but she was kind enough to give me a sample which I eagerly took home & used 2x a day for 3 days with still some left for another day. I then rushed to my local BE store in the mall and got this along with the moisturizer for combination skin plus the blemish therapy.
I've been using this now for 2 weeks and my skin has been babysoft, smooth, soothed and still moisturized. After each use I fall in love with my skin's texture. My skin has never been this supple & oh so soft! I've used other products before and they all dried my skin and left it irritated.
I'm hooked

What is the size of this foundation today?
Would like to know the size of this product before ordering.
BareMinerals Original SPF15 Foundation is 8g/0.28 oz. Don't let the small number deter your from purchasing the product. I've been using daily for 3 weeks the basic kit and I haven't even gone through half of the foundation, veil & warmth, plus I use extra foundation as a concealer.
I hope this helps.

What is the exfoliating factor?
One of the reviewers says that the active soil complex is the exfoliating property. I've used this for over a month and do not feel or see the exfoliating effects. My question is, then, how does this differ from the daily facial cleanser which also has the active soil complex.
A few of the exfoliants I see in this product are kaolin, starch from rice and tapioca, as well as lemon peel. Kaolin clay and the starches perform a double duty as they have been known to absorb excess oil from the skin. You also get mother natures's skin soothing, anti-aging, and antioxidant properties of essential oils and plant extracts plus the added benefits of Active Soil Complex.
Most of all, makes this product extraordinary is that you can customize its application according to your need. You may reduce the amount of water you use according to the amount of exfoliation you need. Less water means more exfoliation. For morning cleansing, I wet my face and hands, place a small dollop of powder on my palm and with my other wet hand, add some more water until its like a wet paste then apply it to my face. For evening, I only add 2-4 drops of water keeping it at a pastey powdery consistency for more exfoliating. After each use, with skin feeling soft and renewed, I follow it with the Purely Nourishing Mousturizer and treat any potential and current breakouts with Blemish Therapy. And, along with PrimeTime creating an even smoother canvas for my morning BareMinerals makeup regimen.

After Exfoliation...Moisturize?
I absolutely love BE products and after reading the description and reviews on this new Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser, I decided to order it yesterday. So far, everyone is saying how soft and smooth their skin feels right after applying this treatment before bed or waking up, so is it necessary to use a facial moisturizer right after too? I'm use to applying a facial mask twice a week and still use facial moisturizer, but didn't know if this product was any different, afterall, it is labeled as an exfoliating cleanser, not a lotion or moisturizer.
I use and highly recommend, the exfoliating treatment cleanser then follow it the purely nourishing moisturizer. When I first used the exfoliating treatment cleanser, it left my skin very soft and unlike any cleanser I've used in the past, my skin didn't feel taut and dry.
