I used this foundation about 5 years ago when I had some acne and at some point my acne got out of control. My dermatologist told me bareminerals could be part of the problem, so I switched to a different brand and took additional steps to treat my acne. My skin was clear for about 4 yrs when I decided to give BE another try. I wore this foundation for about 4 hrs and when I washed my face I had 3 blemishes. The only explanation for this was my foundation, the rest of my skin care routine was the same. From what I have read about BE original foundation is that some people have a reaction to it, so make sure to watch your skin if you decide to start using this product.

I LOVED the idea of bareminerals in a pressed powder!! After reading the reviews I was convinced that people were not applying the product correctly, so I decided to give the product a try. I went to the bareminerals store to get color matched and found a shade that blended really well with my skin tone.
The next day I used my PrimeTime primer and then applied Ready with the precision face brush. I only used a little bit of product and applied in a sweeping motion as recommended. After about an hour of wear the powder settled in my pores and looked beyond terrible. It is so unfortunate because I love the idea of the pressed powder but ultimately went back to the original. I really hope those at BE will figure out the problems with this product and come back with something better.
