Phrases Chosen: acne zapper
I love this item!! I had heard about Bare Minerals products before but have only recently started using them. While in the boutique, the representative told me about this product. She said that her supervisor had applied it at the beginning of her work shift and by the end it had improved.
So I decided to try it as I had some sort breakout on my eyelid which had been stubborn for a week without improvement and was irritating. I couldn't conceal it very well and I had a wedding the next day. I applied it that evening and before bedtime. By the next morning, it had improved dramatically and was barely noticeable. I went to the wedding a happy girl. It has worked multiple times for other "Mount Vesuvius-es" that have erupted on my face in like 1-2 days.
I was told to wear this over my foundation but it noticeable and does not conceal. So I might wear it under foundation or rub it in.
I carry it my purse to zap breakouts as they come. I love it and will never be without it! :)

Is this product worth buying and does it work well with the Matte Foundation?
I was just wondering, and considering after all of the reviews if i should try it. I saw the price: $18. Is it worth trying? I have the SPF 15 Matte Medium Beige Foundation; about to buy more, and wondering if I should try it and see if it would look good under the matte. Is it also good for oily skin and make it less oily while working with my acne. I also have seen noticeable changes in my skin while using bareMinerals Matte foundation. So I was wondering if it was REALLY worth buying.
It depends what you are hoping to use this for. I use it for my breakouts and to me this really works! I haven't tried it under my foundation yet but over it. I suppose it would work underneath your foundation if you used the layering method. I have combination skin and it works well. I don't know if it will make your skin less oily as I have only used it as a spot treatment and not on my entire face. As to whether or not it was really worth buying, I have been using acne treatments and nothing has worked as well or quickly for me as this blemish treatment has. But each person's experience might be different.
I hope this helps.

How long does it take for this to start working?
I ordered the blemish therapy online and it jsut came in the mail today. I took a shower washed my face and put it on after my face was dry. I know it wont work over night but when will i start seeing results?
When I first bought this product, I used it in the evening then before bedtime and say a dramatic improvement by the next morning. On average for me, it starts to work within a few hours to 1 day.

This item doesn't conceal very well. That being said, I have tan/dark skin tone but it is light in color.

Does this work for darker, deep skin tones?
It only comes in one color and the color it is is very light
The color is very light. I was told to wear this over my foundation but it is noticeable but throughout the day. I sometimes rub it in lightly into the blemish or breakout area. Others have worn it underneath their concealer or foundation.

How many oz in the small size?
The description just says small size but does not tell how much is in the small size.
The size posted on the bottom of the container is 0.03 oz (1 gram)
