Pros: mind blowing, life changing
I've been using the basic BE System (Powder cleanser and moisturizer) for almost 5 years! I get compliments on my skin all the time. Last week I ran out of my cleanser but decided to wait 10 days (until my FAB discount) to stock up. Within that time my skill totally regressed----breaking out on my chin and developed little bumps across my cheeks. I broke down and RAN to the store to get one bottle to hold me over. Used it one night and my skin is already restored.
Unfortunately I don't care for either of the other BE Cleansers----but I adore the entire line of products--- I now use the cleanser then the brightening pads, then the moisturizer + eye cream followed by the serum and PM Treatment! Adore it all. xoxo.

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.
I use the exfoliating cleanser every day, morning and night! It's really gentle so over-exfoliating isn't an issue.

Can this be used with the Clarisonic?
I just bought a Clarisonic and it says not to use it with exfoliating cleansers-does this include non-harsh BE exfoliating cleansers? Or just gritty drugstore brands. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks.
I use by BE Powder cleanser with my Clarisonic all the time and I love it! As a former boutique employee I can tell you that there are a lot of BE + Clarisonic fans out there and I've never heard of any issues/problems!

I think it mostly refers to the harsh exfliators that have crushed walnuts etc in them, OUCH!
Best,

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!
Hey there! I'm 27 and I have used the entire Rare skincare system for almost 5 years. I get compliments on my skin constantly---even just checking out at Target! I adore the line, but I know what you mean about being curious bout the ingredients. Since I hit 27 (okay, I'm lying, I turn 27 on Friday)---so since 27 is on the horizon----I've been looking into more heavy duty anti-aging efforts, and my research turned up the same info as yours did.

BE used to have a line called MD Formulations (you can see a tab for it at the top of this page) which has some of the acid products you're talking about. (I would describe this as the more chemically skincare line, vs rare which is much more pure.) I've kind of mixed and matched some of the Rare products with MD!

Best of luck!

I'm trying to choose between the exfoliating treatment cleanser and the deep cleansing foam.
My skin became clogged, developed larger pores, and pores that I had never noticed before after using Mac foundation for a few years. I'd love if I could find a product that got rid of my patches of orange peel and return it to the state it was before. Anyone know which product would work better for this?
Personally I love the exfoliating cleanser. It takes some time to get use to mixing the powder + water together, but you'll get the hang of it! I found the foam to be too thick (and maybe containing too many oils?) and I broke out from it.

I have used the powder cleanser for 5 years and as a former BE Beauty Ambassador I can tell you that I had countless clients who saw amazing things happen to their skin with the Rare skinscare. Best of luck!
