Pros: matte finish, instantly absorbed
I'm not the type that's willing to take extreme measures to improve my skin so after reading the overwhelming positive reviews about this product (here and on other beauty retailers' websites), I decided to pick up a bottle and give it a go. So far, Skin Rev-er Upper looks like it's going to be a keeper. One pump covers my entire face, it absorbs instantly and leaves my skin with a smooth, matte finish. I haven't experienced any adverse reactions (breakouts, rashes, etc.) and have noticed that my skin stays more matte throughout the day since I started using it. This product is another reason I'm a Bare Minerals "lifer!"

Pros: great value, great products
I've always loved value sets but often find that they're filled with fluff - one or two products that I love/need and the rest ends up in my "meh" makeup pile. Not the case with the BE Customizable Face Case 2013 because YOU get to decide what goes in it! I chose their Original foundation, Ready Mineral Veil and a Ready Blush all conveniently packaged in a sweet pink, generously sized zippered pouch. Score!!!

Can I use this as eye primer also?
I am liking this product for my face so far. Is it really necessary to buy the separate eye primer also? Isn't it kinda sorta the same thing?
Skin Rev-er Upper is not a makeup primer so it won't work like one. I personally avoid the eye area when I apply this product because it contains both salycilic and glycolic acids - too harsh for the delicate eye area.

Does the Skin Rev-er Upper replace the Prime Time?
Skin Rev-er Upper replace the Prime Time?
Step 1 Wash face
Step 2 Moisturize
Step 3 "Skin Rev-er Upper"
Step 4 "BE foundation"
Are these the correct steps?

What's the difference between Skin Rev-er Upper and the Prime Time?
What's the difference between the two? Is Rev-er Upper something I should use instead do to starting to see age lines in my face?
Skin Rev-er Upper is a product you use to help improve the overall quality (tone, texture, color) of your skin - it's a beauty treatment.

Prime Time is a primer. Makeup primers are used to help turn your skin into the best "canvas" for makeup application.

will this minimize your pores?
i have large pores and they REALLY get on my nerves,, so im looking for a prime that will help minimize them.
Skin Rev-er Upper is not a primer so it won't help minimize your pores. I put it in the same category as anything that's used to treat and help improve the quality of your skin.

Is this product supposed to have a strong scent?
The product has a strong chemical odor. Is that because of the ingredients? I have not encountered this before with other Prep products from BE
Mine definitely has a certain smell to it but I wouldn't define it as "strong." I'm assuming it's the salicylic and glycolic acids that are producing the smell you're referring to.

what is the spf value of these products???
interesting products but I work outside and spf is essential.
Because this product contains both salicylic and gycolic acid, I wouldn't use it if I spent the majority of my day outside/in the sun. I'd stick with a sunblock that has a very high SPF during the day and use this only at night.

Glitter?
I have heard that this is a good Bronzer, but it has glitter in it
and that it shows on the face. Would like to try but dont want any
glitter on my gace especially because i am a Mature Lady.
The Bronze Splendor duo is a wonderful product but it does have a bit of "shimmer" in the Luminizer. I think if you apply it very lightly with the tapered fan brush (included in the set), you should be fine.

Is there a how to video on how to apply the Bronze Splendor duo?
I purchased Bronze Splendor and would like to know how to apply it correctly and which other BE products to use wih it.
I haven't seen a video on how to use the Bronze Splendor duo. When I purchased my Bronze Splendor set from a BE Boutique, I was told to sweep the tapered fan brush (included in the set) onto the "high points" of your face - temples, cheeks and jawline. A MUA (make up artist) friend of mine said to imagine that there is a large "3" on your face and apply your bronzer there.
