Phrases Chosen: goes on smooth, stays fresh all day and then some!, beautiful colors!, last even after swimming competition!
I love thes eyeshadows. They are easy to apply (less messy than the loose powders) and they last all day and stay smooth! They don't crease or slide.
The big plus though, I was amazed. My daughter is a synchronized swimmer. At a recent meet, we forgot to pack her make-up bag (she is 11 so I don't invest in great make-up for her yet#, so I used my own eyeshadow. I applied a very small bit of primer to help hold the shadow and then heavily applied the blue shadow early that morning. After four routines wearing goggles and then two routines without #therefore there was a lot of eye rubbing), the eyeshadow was just as fresh and vibrant as when I applied it that morning! It didn't even smudge or wear off at all! I was amazed!

Phrases Chosen: messy!!!, staying power
I got this a while ago and had a love/hate relationship with it. I loved the color (golden copper). It was beautiful and lasted throughout the day. The only problem was the applicator was terribly messy. I had to tap (and the word tap is putting it lightly) the applicator to remove the excess a lot. My husband was willing to drive me to the store and buy me another eye shadow to get me to stop using this because he hated listening to the excessive "tapping!" Still after trying to get the excess off of the applicator, I would end up with a couple of tiny drops of shadow on my cheeks after application. Those tiny drops go a LONG way. If I tried to just wipe it away, the shadow would be all across my face. It was awful. That was before I finally gave in to putting my eye make-up on first followed by face make-up because I would have to re-do my face every time! Pro (like all BE shadows) it applies and stays. Con it is terribly messy and not a tiime-saver at all. Will not ever buy again.

Phrases Chosen: refines pores, evens tone, great for combo skin
I don't usually write reviews for products, but I am so pleased with this one that I had to give feedback. I have never found a cleanser, high end or low end, that has quit met my expectations and/or needs. I was quite skeptical about this cleanser but was feeling adventurous and bought it on a whim......that was a great move. I have combo skin that goes to extremes......super oily in the t-zone, extra dry and sensitive in other areas. My skin tone also tends to be splotchy and red and my pores across my nose and cheeks are huge....embarrasingly so. I wasn't even looking for cleanser, but a sales rep suggested it (I think she saw that I really needed this). I am so pleased with the outcome! My pores have been reduced so much so that they don't bother me anymore. My face seems to make it longer through the day without getting oily and my dry areas are not irritated and flaky anymore. My skin tone has evened out dramatically! Other reviewers commented about feeling like they could go without make-up and their skin glowing and I could not agree more! Others complained about the smell of the product but it is rice powder....it smells like rice powder and is free of perfume. I wouldn't say that it smells good, but it certainly doesn't smell bad. This is a little more than I like to spend on cleansers because they don't typically deliver. But, since this product does so much for me, I am willing to pay a little more for it. Love the product, glad I caved to my whim!

Questions
 
Does this serve as a moisturizer too? Also, does it have that odor typical of sunless tanners?
I use a product that is a facial moisturizer and sunless tanner. I like the convenience of the 2-in-1, but after a few hours, I can smell that odor that is typical of sunless tanners. Perhaps that is unavoidable, but would love to find a product that doesn't have that smell.

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!
I think it depends on your skin type and what kind of activities you do as to what type of cleansers you use. I am older than you (knocking on 40), but I have sensitive skin and am outdoors a lot with a great deal of sun exposure. Salicylic and gylcolic acids tend to intensify the damaging effects of the sun so I avoid them as much as possible. I have found this cleanser to be very effective in providing all the great benefits you would expect from the acids without the damaging side effects.

Does this cleanser use a chemical exfolient, or does it have ingredients that literally scrub your skin?
Chemical or physical?
This cleanser physically and gently exfoliates as opposed to chemical exfoliation. I am outdoors a lot and am very sensitive to chemical exfoliants and sun exposure. This product is great in that it effectively exfoliates my skin without chemicals that cause irritation.
