A little disappointed...
Rating
3 out of 5
3 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: feels heavy, unpleasant scent
I bought this SPF moisturizer after using the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer without the SPF protection. I was hoping to love this as much as the PMN, but I was disappointed. The added SPF makes it heavy and difficult to smooth over my skin evenly, which means I have to use more product to get proper coverage. It feels a bit tacky, unlike the PMN, and has an unpleasant scent. I don't like that it leaves me feeling like I'm wearing too much product. I know that SPF protection is important, so I'm glad that my BE foundation and Mineral Veil have SPF to help protect my skin. I'm giving it 3 stars because of its heavy feel and bad scent, but I can say that it didn't make my oily skin more oily, and it didn't make me break out. I don't think it's a bad SPF moisturizing product, I just don't like how it makes my skin feel after applying it.

Phrases Chosen: great value, nice scent, nourishing
I love this moisturizer and have used the regular size for a long time, so I'm really happy to see this Deluxe size. It's a great value and I'll probably buy a couple of them before this size is unavailable. My skin is oily, but the harsh Wisconsin winters can make my skin very dry. This moisturizer is lightweight and replenishes my skin's natural moisture without making my skin oily, or break out. It soothes my skin when it's wind-burned and leaves it feeling soft and smooth. It also has a very light, pleasing scent. I've seen reviewers describe it as lemony and I'd have to agree, though I think it's a very soft lemon scent. The original size lasts forever, like most of the BE skincare line, so the Deluxe size truly is a great value. Thanks for offering it!

Phrases Chosen: freshens skin, soothing, removes makeup, skin feels so smooth
I've been using the Purifying Facial Cleanser religiously for over a year and can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet. I have oily skin that can break out easily if I don't wash my face before going to bed and after waking up. But my skin is also sensitive to most other "gentle" cleansing products. This is the first cleanser I've ever used that I feel lives up to its name. One or two pumps removes all of my BE makeup using just my hands, soothes, calms, and freshens my skin without leaving any residue that other cleansing products do. But the best part is how my skin feels after using it. I'm amazed at how incredibly soft my skin feels afterwards - baby soft describes it best! I break out less and I think it has minimized how oily my skin gets during the day. I will NEVER use another facial cleanser again, and I can't believe this hasn't made the customer favorites list. It should!

The perfect mascara

Phrases Chosen: natural color, separates, defines
I love all of the mascaras, but this one is my favorite. It creates a more natural lash base without making them look overdone. It coats the lashes nicely, is virtually flake free, and lasts all day. It also washes off with a gentle cleanser. I also have to say that Espresso is a very under-rated color. Black is great for an evening look, or giving the eyes a dramatic pop, but brown is more natural and less obvious. In the daytime, my lashes look more naturally thick and it matches my eye color. This is also a nice, rich shade of brown. Try it!

Phrases Chosen: creamy, long-lasting, moisturizing
I was looking for a color to match the Pretty Amazing-Bravado, and this is it. I love this color. It's a nice garnet red that doesn't make your teeth look yellow when you have it on. It goes on really smooth and you don't lose a lot of it when you blot. I have very sensitive lips that tend to chap in the winter months. Lip balms either taste medicated or go on waxy. Though this is not a lip balm, it's very calming and protects my lips from the effects of the high wind. This is definitely worth a try if you like red!

Phrases Chosen: pricy, freshens dull skin
First off, I gave this 4 hearts because of the price. I'm not saying it doesn't deserve it, but for the cost I think you should get a little more. Now, I have no clue why this doesn't make my skin break out. It feels a little tacky going on, so I expected to break out after a few days of use. Not one bit!!! I started using this at the tail-end of our brutally hot summer, with other BE skin care products. I'd put it on before bed. It didn't feel heavy, but it didn't absorb completely into my skin. When I woke up in the morning, my face looked fresh, dewy and rested. I was surprised. I continued using it until I was almost out, then I stopped because I thought I could skimp and do without. In that time, I had some breakouts that left dark spots and a little scarring. Majorly bummed. Two months later, I realized I had some serum left and got 4 more uses. I'm surprised...not only does my face look fresh and hydrated (now freezing winter), but the dark spots look like their fading a bit! No joke! I went to my local boutique and bought another bottle. To make it last, I use it every other night. That seems to work well. Oh, still no breaking out :-)

Phrases Chosen: subtle, natural color
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet...I use this as instead of blush. Personally, I think it has a more natural color, and it does look like your skin has a natural rosy glow. It looks very light pink, but that's deceiving because it looks like it would go on very pale. But it doesn't, it will work with your natural skin tone to give it a subtle boost. There is no sparkle in this product, so you really do look like you're "lit from within". I also mix this with the warmth to make a very natural eye shadow, when I don't want to look made-up. I use this every day!

My new favorite mineral veil and brush
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: convenient, not messy, great value
I LOVE this brush (and I have many)! This is the softest brush in the collection, and the compact case is perfect for purses. I load the brush with any color or veil and toss it in my purse. That and a lipstick, and I'm out the door. The veil is the perfect color for my skin tone. It looks more peachy/orange, but it doesn't go on that way. I have the tinted mineral veil compact and that color is just too dark for my light skin. I will always love the original mineral veil, but sometimes it's too light. This lightly tinted veil is perfect and keeps my makeup looking fresh without washing out the color. And...please make more mineral products using this kind of dispenser! It really does dispense the perfect amount of product without making a mess. The mirror is a bonus, too. For the price, this is a must buy :)

Phrases Chosen: excellent value, perfect purse brush, sturdy and functional
I followed the advice of another reviewer, to load the bristles with whatever you need during the day, be it mineral veil or face color, cap the brush and forget about it. I bought two of these brushes for that purpose, and I'm so glad I did! First, the brush is amazingly soft. I could spend the day just brushing it over my face...I have the original buki brush, but this one just feels nicer. Second, the retractable case is an awesome color, easy to use (to re-cap), is very sturdy and it doesn't leak any of the minerals that I have pre-loaded into my bag. For me, this eliminates my need for a make-up bag when all I need is a quick touch up in the middle of my day. Get one or two of these before they're gone, at a remarkable price!

Phrases Chosen: non-greasy, light
I love this stuff, it reduces the amount of foundation and concealer I use. There is a trick that I use when applying...don't rub it into your skin completely as you do with the regular Prime Time. I leave some of the color to soak into my skin in the areas that are more splotchy than others. It's great that it doesn't leave a characteristic make-up line behind as other foundations have a tendency to do. I don't imagine this product would be for everyone, and I was skeptical at first, but I'm glad I tried it! Perfect for those of us with yellow undertones in our light to medium skin color. Oh, and it's non-greasy too so it's great for oily skin as well. I'm very happy :)

Questions
 
How do I apply mineral eye shadow to my eyelids so it doesn't dust-off onto my under eye area?
I have high cheekbones and deep-set eyes, which seem to accentuate my dark under-eye circles. Thankfully, the bareMinerals Light foundation and Well Rested Eye Brightener have worked miracles with reducing my dark circles! Unfortunately, the neutral bM eye shadow I purchased always flakes off the applicator tip and lands underneath my eyes, making my eye circles darker than they already are. This seems to happen regardless of how many times I try to tap-off the excess shadow from the applicator tip. What am I doing wrong??? Please help, I LOVE bareMinerals and I also love eye shadow!

Active Cell Renewal Night Serum (30 mL / 1 Fl. Oz.)
 
Does this product help diminish acne scars?
I am light skined and I have acne scars mostly all over my face. I have being looking for a product that will help diminish my scars for the longest time but have not had any luck. Before trying the Active Cell Renewal Night Serum I wanted to know if this product could help deminish the scars in my face.
For me, it seems to be working on that. I don't think it will actually eliminate all of the dark color, but red/brown color reduction seems to be where it's headed :). It may also be that this product helps the circulation in the skin around it which brings more blood to the skin surface, and therefore more color to balance the color from the scarring. That's just a theory of mine, so I can rationally explain why this product may work :) Good luck!

Be very careful about selecting this color...my foundation is Light (between fair and medium with golden tone). I went to my local BE boutique expecting to get Light 2, but walked out with Medium 2 after being color matched. The 2's are for more golden complexions, but I would have purchased a shade that was way too light if I had purchased it online. If you don't have a local boutique, purchase your normal shade AND the next darker shade. You can return the shade that doesn't match. Good luck :)

I am using a mild retinol product at night; is it to much to add this on top since I have sensitive- dry- aging skin?
I am using a mild retinol product at night; is it to much to add this on top since I have sensitive- dry- aging skin?
Personally, I think this is an excellent product for areas that are dry, sensitive, and/or flaky. I have oily, acne prone skin and the treatment I use that works for me dries up my skin and gives it that lovely dried-brick look. I'm AMAZED that every BE product I've used (all powders) have made my face look and feel softer and smoother WITHOUT accentuating any wrinkles. As for the Well Rested Pen, this formulation feels more like a creamy liquid but it's not heavy like other liquid foundations. It conceals redness and age spots nicely, and fills in the wrinkles to make them a lot LESS noticeable. I know, it doesn't make sense to me either, but BE products seem to be the exception to the rule. If you live near a BE boutique, it is worth a trip there to try it yourself and see how it works for you.

How much product is in this size container? Thanks!
how many oz or grams?
2g or 0.07 oz, it's in the same size container as the Warmth or a Medium size blush for BE products. Like the Warmth, a little bit goes a long way. I've had mine for 6 months and I still have more than 50% remaining.
