Phrases Chosen: perfect foundation
I LOVE my READY foundation. It is just PERFECT. It covers redness on my cheeks and I can build up my coverage and still look natural. It is LONG lasting, it never settled into any lines on my face and makes me look more polished. My skin is oily and the foundation still lasts very very long. No need to touch up throughout the day, I just use oil absorbing sheets and it looks like I just put on makeup. It is also so comfortable to the skin and lies so beautifully on it. I just can't say anything negative about it, it really is my perfect foundation.

Great primer

Phrases Chosen: pleasant to use, great feel
I was always hesitant about using a primer because I was scared of any adverse reactions from my skin. I gave this a shot and it was great. It was pleasant to use, very silky and it doesn't feel heavy on your skin. It didn't cause any adverse reactions so I am grateful and very happy with this product.

great eyeliner

Phrases Chosen: does not run!, vibrant colour
I always used eyeliners that said they were waterproof but they would disappear from the lower eyelids in about 30 minutes. When i wear it on my upper lid, somehow it would run and smear at the bottom corner of my eyes, then i would have to use tissue to try and neaten it up. This eyeliner is really great! IT STAYS PUT!!!!! also the colour is very vibrant!

Phrases Chosen: easy to apply!
this primer is very easy to apply. i used a primer before and it was very difficult to spread over my eye lid because it was so thick and tacky. this primer goes on effortlessly, it feels light weight and most importantly it works!

most delicate exfoliator
Rating
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: gentle, effective, unusual
I was mostly curious about this award winning exfoliator. It was a bit tricky to use, but with the advice from the Q&A section I finally nailed it! Just incase someone is reading this and wondering how to really use this product. Dampen your face (not dripping with water) and leave your hands a bit damp as well. Shake product into the palm of your hand, up to 6 shakes (it looked like approximately a teaspoon to me). With your other hand just sprinkle a few drops (about 4) into the powder and gently rub, if it's pasty and stiff add 2 more drops. You'll see it loosen up. After that, massage into your face and rinse. You're good to go. I definitely feel my skin smoother after I use this. Actually in the process of figuring out this product, i applied it to my face in more a paste form, tried to rub it on my face and soon my fingertips felt a bit sore...so incase you were doubting the exfoliating power of this don't! And please don't use it how i just described lol. It's really a good exfoliator and it is far more gentle than any other i have used!

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!
you need to go easy on the water. add literally a few drops to the exfoliating powder in the palm of your hand. gently work the water into the cleanser and add drop by drop until it's a easily spread paste. i shake the bottle about 6 times (that's how much cleanser i am happy with) and usually i use about 6-8 drops of water. i just let the drop run along my finger onto the cleanser.

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.
it depends on your skin type. if you have oily, combination skin it is good to exfoliate twice a week. if your skin is dry, you need to ease up on the frequency.

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.
hi, yes you need to use a moisturizer after using the exfoliating treatment. even more importantly so because you've removed layers of skin that you would not really do during normal cleansing and you need to pamper the new exposed skin to keep it supple and well hydrated.

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?
hi, you need to give your skin a chance to recover. don't expect a miracle over night. i have combination skin so i use the exfoliating cleanser twice a week in the morning in place of the deep cleanser. the deep cleanser, i use in the morning and in the night i use the purifying cleanser. i don't believe using the exfoliating cleanser should be used everyday - it may be too aggresive.

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.
Hi, if you look at the video in the "experience" section and then search for skin care collections you'll see the explanation about what exactly the active soil complex is. They did not mention exfoliating effects...but BE does have an impressive exfoliating cleanser that would achieve the exfoliation you are looking for.

Will this cleanser break my skin out with blemishes (acne)?.. and will my skin be oily later in the day?
My skin is acne prone, I am nervous to try anything because of this.
hi, if you have sensitive skin like me please don't expect an overnight miracle. give your skin a chance to get used to this new product. i was extremely nervous like you but decided to give it a shot. you won't know unless you try, remember everyone is different.
my skin took about a month to get used to it. it hasn't made my acne worse at all. it's better, i remember when i used to use a toner and then my skin would be oily right after using it. and it was a toner specifically for my skin type. i hated that. now my skin doesn't look as oily at all. sometimes i won't use an oil absorbing sheet until the afternoon (after washing my face early in the morning). right now i am not sure if using the deep foaming cleanser all the time is the best thing for me. i'm actually going to post a question about this, somehow i feel it's a little too tough on my sensitive skin. maybe i need to alternate with the purifying... which clearly states it's gentle.
