It made my face very oily! :(

Phrases Chosen: not what i expected
I started using this product some weeks ago. Shortly afterward, I started to notice my face was very oily indeed, more than usual, and needed to be dabbed every time I looked in the mirror. It took me a while to figure out what the problem could be. Last night, it occurred to me that this was the only new product I was using on my face and to skip it this morning and watch for results. My face is almost completely back to normal with regard to oiliness, in just a few hours. Sounds like I won't be finding out how fabulous it is for wrinkles after all. I hadn't noticed any difference yet in that regard.

Not for combination or oily skin!

I was excited when I saw this new product. I had gone in to buy my eye firming treatment which so far had worked on my laugh lines and other wrinkles. I almost paid $50 for this but since it turned out that the free gift with my purchase was a small container of the same, I decided to try it out first. Wise decision. I have used it for only a few weeks but I noticed that every day, my face just seeped oil. That happens when my pores are irritated or I don't moisturize well or with the right moisturizer. I did everything else the same. Then I noticed it was the same areas where I applied this product. I skipped it today and so far, no oil. It might be a great product for wrinkles but I'll never find out and would not recommend it to anyone with combination/oily skin like me, or sensitive pores. I can however say it was not comedogenic which is good, since I also battle acne.

Phrases Chosen: excellent quality
I have used this for more than a year and cannot do without it. It firms my eyes and prevents bags under my eyes. And when I don't use it, the bags come back. A good night's sleep also helps however. Because if I'm sleep deprived, it affects the results I get. I also use it on my laugh lines and the lines between my eyes and they work. You can barely see them now. I would recommend this any day.

Phrases Chosen: great addition to beauty regimen
I knew this brush was a winner from the day I set my eyes on it. I bought it along with my starter kit but gave myself a few days before trying it out. It's 11pm and I just filled it with mineral veil and applied over make-up that I have had on since 6:30am. Perfect.
Here's how to use it:
1) Read the manual.
2) Make a funnel out of a small piece of paper such as a receipt, but with asymmetric ends so that the narrow end can fit in the transparent holder for your product and the wide end can take the product you're pouring in without a spill.
Gotta think like a scientist on this one or get someone who thinks like one to help you, such as your teenager. Good luck ladies. For me, all I need to leave the house with is the mineral veil because of my seeping oil in my T-zone problem. And with such great products from BE, I only need touch-up once or maybe twice throughout my 12 hr day.
Loving it!

Phrases Chosen: contains parabens and propylene glycol
I felt somewhat deflated when I realized this product contains 2 parabens and propylene glycol. I had gotten myself all excited that this company is all natural. It appears they mostly are though. We'll see. I'm new to the products.

Can this product be used as a preventative against wrinkles?
I am 28 years old and am trying to prevent or postpone wrinkles from occurring. The title of the product suggests it repairs wrinkles that are already there, but what if there aren't any wrinkles yet...? Will it help to prevent wrinkles from appearing?
Usually, that is the case. If it treats wrinkles, it also prevents new wrinkles from forming.

Can this product be used on the delicate under eye area? Also, is it used all over the face
Multi Wrinkle Repair
At the store, I was told not to use it in the delicate eye area. For that, I use the Firming eye treatment. More than a year now and it works for me.

What is the difference between the Wrinkle Concentrate and the Multi Wrinkle Serum, and which one is best for firming skin?
I am interested in which product will most effectively target a loss of firmness and nose to mouth lines? Thank you.
I used the firming eye treatment for a year and every time I applied it (twice a day) to my eye area, I also applied to my laugh lines and the wrinkle between my eyes. It worked. The multi-wrinkle repair might work for you too (though it didn't agree with me), or the wrinkle concentrate. There's no one-size-fits-all and sometimes we can't tell until we try them. If you're buying from a store, when you buy one thing, find out if there's a promo that might cover something else you're interested in trying out. Or just samples in general. All the best.

Will this product make me breakout?
I am very acne prone still at age 32. Will this make me breakout?
It didn't make me break out but I also have combination/oily skin and it caused my skin to seep oil constantly. I'm guessing it irritated my pores.

texture
Is this a creamy type of texture or a thinner more liquid texture?
Creamy. Absorbs nicely. You only need very little. Less than pea sized.

Parabens?
I was about to buy this product, until I noticed that there are 2 parabens in the ingredient list... It surprised me that BE would use parabens, since the company seems to usually avoid them. I've been trying to limit my use of topical products containing parabens, and usually BE is great about the ingredients, but not this time.
Is BE going to release a version without parabens?
Does anyone know a comparable product without any parabens?
Korres does but I don't know that this answer will be posted because I'm recommending a rival product. Lol.
