- Unexpected Bonus!
I received the Fairly-Light Starter Kit for Christmas. It turned out I didn't care too much for the makeup(try Loreal Mineral Makeup instead!) But this product was nearly a miracle worker for me! I have ALWAYS had some breakouts and very uneven skin tone. Since using this product, I have received so many complements on my "perfect" skin! I love how my skin feels, now, too! I still follow up with a moisturizer after applying this product and letting it absorb. It is very light and not at all greasy. And as for smelling like Elmer's Glue, as one reviewer stated, I appreciate the fact that it has no perfumes or scents added, as they can be irratating to my skin. Give this product a try, it is a great value!...more info
- changed my skin - for the better!
I just wanted to give a thumbs up to this product. I always had acne-prone skin and was very sensitive to any product on my face. This product contains a small amount of salycilic acid to combat that, but not enough to cause the other demon - dry skin. It provides the perfect base for Bare Minerals makeup.
I know of people who have tried Bare Minerals and not found success, and I honestly believe it is because they used it without Skin Revver-Upper as a base. I was lucky that it all came for me in a starter kit. Since then, I'm on my second bottle. It does last for a while, so the price is worth it....more info
After I started using Bare Escentuals my complextion actually started clearing up. I attribute much the clearness to this product and highly reccomend it if you use BE....more info
- I'm sold
It's taken me a number of years to find a face lotion that is just right for my skin type. I admit it's costly (hence the four stars), but for me it's worth the price. I wouldn't say the smell is pleasant either but I got used to it and it goes away quickly. I use it whether I wear makeup or not and would recommend it for those with sensitive skin. ...more info
- Awesome Product!
This is the first time I have ever written a review. I must admit, when I first thought to give Bare Essentials a try, I wasn't holding on to any great expectations. However, I soon came to love the products!
I have very sensitive skin and I have to be careful what I actually apply to it. The minerals are great! They do not react with my skin, and most importantly, they contain sunscreen and they are endorsed by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Another big plus for me since I have already had trouble with skin cancer and it runs in my family. The more protection, the better!
I was so impressed with the mineral line that for my teenage daughter's recent birthday I purchased her a starter kit. I wanted to be sure she started off using this makeup because it is very natural, light, and doesn't seem to promote breakouts...something every teen girl wants! Inside her kit was the Skin Rev-er Upper. I asked to borrow it, and LOVE it! I apply it under the moisturizer and it just makes your face feel great and the makeup goes on smoothly (although I never had problems applying the makeup before using it) and it seems to have longer staying power throughout the day.
If anyone is hesitant about trying the line...I would tell them not to be! Its worth the investment....more info
- Not that great.
I received a bottle of Skin Rev-er Upper when I bought the Get Started kit. I'll admit that I didn't care much about this stuff because I bought the kit mainly for the foundation but I decided to try it anyway and was upset with the results.
So what's to like about it? Only one thing really. When you put this stuff on, your skin immediately becomes smooth so applying makeup is easier.
And what's not to like? First of all, I have red spots on the sides of my face as well as scars scattered about. One thing I noticed is that once I put this stuff on, it makes my skin more red and makes the scars more noticeable. Am I allergic to this stuff? Who knows? Second, as another reviewer mentioned, it smells. That's not a huge thing to me because if it works, the smell shouldn't matter, right? Right. Except for the fact that it doesn't work. If anything it does the opposite of what the description says it should do. I haven't noticed a real difference in the appearance of my skin.
In my opinion, this product is nothing but a gimmick. Don't think that this is a miracle in a bottle. For the $20 each bottle costs, you can get a decent moisturizer and some skin care products that'll actually work. I'm giving this product 2 stars because it did make my skin soft and smooth....more info
- Not a big fan
I must admit that I didn't use the entire bottle but I don't notice any difference after many uses. For the price it doesn't seem to do much. Maybe I'll finish using it and post an update afterwards if there's any change in my opinion....more info
- Ok for the Price
I bought this when I got my bare escentuals starter kit. You definitely need this type of product to prep your skin for the makeup, otherwise it doesn't go on evenly. This product is designed for pairing with the makeup and it does what its supposed to do. However, it smelled like glue to me and I could feel the layer of it on my skin which made me feel like it was caked on. This of course, is comparing it to the Estee Lauder Idealist skin refinisher which makes your skin feel like velvet and makes your makeup go on flawlessly. Of course, this isn't an Estee Lauder commerical, so I think it works ok for the price and with the makeup. I wouldn't reccomend using it if you're not using the makeup with it. ...more info
- Great Product!
After a couple days of using the Rever Upper, my skin looked more clear, radiant and rejuvenated. Although i have oily skin, i can still use this product underneath my makeup and look flawless. I also wear it at night while sleeping and in the shower because it does not clog your pores and cause pimples, blackheads or acne. I love it and reccommend it to everyone who has concerns about their skin....more info
- I don't recommend
I purchased this item with Bare Minerals start kit.
I'm a big fan of BM products like Mineral Veil, but sincerely this item I cannot recommend, when I used, after some minutes, my skin start to itch and my rosacea appeared.
The smell of the product is really like a glue.
I think this item is not only a waste of money but It is also put your skin with irritant itches during the day.
- Clearing up blackheads on my nose and cheeks
I have only used this product twice, and I already notice a difference in how my skin looks. I do not have acne. I am 46, and I tend to get blackheads on my nose and cheeks, and this seems to be cleaning them out, and my large pores look like they are disappearing.
It is lightweight, and it feels good, and frankly, I did NOT notice an unusual smell like some others have commented. Maybe my sniffers just not that good! I can't wait to see my face in a few days. It hasn't even had time to really work fully yet!!!...more info
- not the best out there
this is one of the first products i've bought from Bare Escentuals--- I have very sensitive/oily skin (my T-zone is more oily and my cheeks are very sensitive) and after a week of using this product it dried up my skin so much that it began peeling... Also from those first couple of days of wearing this product i really didnt notice any difference in my skin texture or how long my makeup lasted... I quickly stopped using this product.. if your skin is like mine then i do NOT suggest you try this product.. Try something like Smashbox Photofinish. it's the BEST! i get so many compliments on my smooth even complexion......more info
- Subtle but effective
When I first got this item two years ago, it was part of a starter kit, I really didn't use it. According to the directions, it is suposed to be a primer before using the mineral make-up. I never understood why it was billed as a primer since I could see no discernable benefit. Anyway, about a year ago I came across it in my medicine cabinet and thought I would use it as a night time moisture lotion. I used it faithfully every night and within two weeks I saw an improvement in my skin. I don't have many skin problems, but whatever I did have was done away with. My pores looked smaller and cleaner. I have since continued to use it religiously every night and my skin has never looked better....more info
It made my face break out. Not thrilled. I love all the other Bare Escentuals products so I was really disappointed....more info
- Does Nothing for Me.
I got this in my Bare Escentuals starter kit, and I really hated the way it smelled! like other reviewers I thought it smelled like glue, very chemical like. I love bare escentuals makeup,and I noticed that after using the rev-er upper and the makeup that my skin looked amazing, refreshed, so I did an experiment and stopped using the rev-er upper and just stuck to my regular routine of moisturizers that I have used for 20 years and the makeup, and my skin still looked just as radiant, so I am not sure what exactly the Rev-er upper does besides smell really bad....more info
- Love it!
I have never cared much for putting on makeup...it's a pain in the patootie, but I *love* Bare Minerals!...more info
- 4 days of use and I am blown away by the results
After almost a year of using the be make-up, I decided to try the rev-er upper as well as the prime time. I have a few small lines on my face, but one in particular is deep between my eyes from years of squinting. Make-up always falls into this crease and makes it look deeper. It has also had a texture to it for as long as I can remember. After two applications of the rev-er upper there is no texture and the crease has almost disappeared. When I apply my bare minerals it doesn't sink into it any longer. I am a believer now!!!
Also, for those that are saying it doesn't help prepare their skin for application of make-up..that is what "Prime Time" is for and it leaves your skin silky smooth and with it my be make-up has never looked better!...more info
- this stuff makes my face break out
it was included as part of the fairly light powder package i bought. i didn't have breakout before, but the skin on my neck/collarbone area could use some smoothing out as the product promised. i used it on my face, neck,etc once a day for about 4 days and while the skin on my neck/collarbone area is definitely softer and smoother, my face is very oily now and i am getting a lot of pimples. after two days of not using it my skin is starting to calm down. i would say if your face is fine now and you do not have breakout, i would not use this product on your face. those chemicals seem to be a bit strong. if you need smoothing i would reccommend a gentle exfoliating cream of some type instead. ...more info
- Worst Moisturizer EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hate this product.
I cannot believe Bare Escentuals made this.
I have combo skin with only occasional breakouts, and this only made my skin worse.
This product smells horrible. If something works well, but doesnt have the greatest smell, I'll use it. Because I know midway thru the day the smell will wear off.
This smell is just gross. It smells kind of like the product went back...and a hint of plastic. NOT what you expect when you shell out for a "higher brand" moisturizer.
And if the smell didn't bother you, your face feeling sticky will. I felt no hydration. It just feels gross.
Also, if you try to put your Bare Minerals makeup on after it, it just sticks on your face. Usually it blends in, but with this product, it makes your makeup looks obvious...which is the opposite of what you want makeup to do.
I NEVER would use this again. Don't waste your money!...more info
- Great product
I got this product with my starter kit and I was initially annoyed because I didn't want it. I had been using the foundation for about two weeks, hoping it would help clear up my horrible acne, but it didn't. I got the starter kit two weeks ago and started using bareVitamins morning and night after washing my face. My face still isn't totally clear, but it's much, much better.
I'm going to be honest, this stuff stinks. But I can only smell it while applying the product and it doesn't linger at all so in my mind, it's not a negative. ...more info
- Surprising Find
The Bare Escentuals makeup products are impressive and are enhanced by the use of the Bare Vitamins skin Rev-er Upper lotion. Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid clear up your complexion and help to exfoliate dead skin which then leaves the perfect canvas for the powdery mineral foundations. Calming Oat Kernel extract sooths the skin and leaves you with an even complexion. It seems they have all the right ingredients in this formula including Vitamin A and E. Use this alternately with Derma E Peptides Plus mixed with a little JASON Ester-C Hyper -C Serum (use at night) and you may notice your skin becoming more vibrant, fresh and smooth in a few months. This lotion is also included in the starter kits.
