I was a little hesitant to buy this with a lot of reviews stating that it is different than the normal Prime Time, but it seemed that some liked it and some didn't so I gave it a try to see for myself. I love it! I love the original too and it is definitely different, yet I like the way it evened my skin out a little more than if I hadn't used it. It doesn't get rid of all the redness etc. like a foundation would, but helps even the contrasting areas so that it's not so harsh and the foundation can cover it faster. I also used a little extra on the more red areas like another reviewer mentioned. It helped me use less foundation to cover the red areas. I liked the consistency too, it's like a cream, but a silky cream. I enjoy the feel of it, maybe even better than the original. Now I'm thinking they should come out with a Jumbo Size of this one! I think I will be using this from now on! My advice would be don't expect it to be opaque like a foundation. Basically it's a sheer help without adding an extra step to your routine...it's in the Primer instead of having to add another something for the red areas.

I was a little scared to try this one since there are a few reviews that say it starts pealing, and I did have a little trouble with that as well. I get dry patches so to avoid the pealing troubles I mostly use it at night as the last thing I put on. However I figured out a way to avoid the pealing, here's what I do... First I use the regular moisturizer all over and then I use this in a smaller amount and pat it on to the areas that need extra moisture treatment. I pat similar to how you would apply eye cream, instead of rubbing it in. When I do this I don't get any pealing. So I hope this tip helps someone else who wants to use this but was scared of the pealing! LOL

Phrases Chosen: radiant, makes my skin seem flawless!
I really love the Radiance's I've tried so far but especially this one! It's funny because whichever one I'm wearing my husband will describe it using the buzz words in the product descriptions without knowing it at all! And with this one he says my skin looks clear, flawless, and perfect! LOL With Secret Radiance he says my skin looks candlelit and glowing. I love both and can't wait to try more of them, but I really really really love the effect of Flawless Radiance. I have really light skin, and use Fairly Light foundation, so it compliments well and makes me look beautifully porcelain. Some say it's too sparkly but though I can see the sparkles if I look close, they aren't obvious unless you're in direct sunlight and then I still don't mind it, I actually like sparkle anyway. I also use a layer of the Hydrating Mineral Veil last and it seems to make the sparkles even less visible when I look closely. Plus I believe it's the reflecting light that really makes your skin seem more perfect than it is. I apply it a little heavier over the top of my cheeks to highlight, and then sweep it all over also. I'm in love with BE now and I really love how everything works together and how the products compliment each other and how there are so many variations to combine!

Gentle On My Eyes
Phrases Chosen: gentle
I love that this cleanser is so gentle it can be used on your eyes too! Most out there you can't. So I was thrilled when I used it for the first time and I removed all my eye make-up with it at the same time as my face and my eyes didn't get irritated at all! I usually wash twice in a row, the first pea size gets the initial what's on my skin, and right after rinsing I use a second pea size to finish cleansing my skin and removing any excess that was left. I learned this when I got a Facial at a Salon and have done it ever since. I was so happy that my eyes and face were perfectly clean with absolutely no irritation to my eyes! Lately it seems any eye makeup remover irritates my eyes, even when it says it won't, I dread using any. I haven't tried BE's waterproof eye makeup remover yet, which I might not need to with this cleanser!
