Do not buy this product if you have acne. I have severe cystic acne and I have done thorough research on acne and comedogenic ingredients for years. It takes a plethora of products to control my acne, in addition to being extremely careful about what goes on my face. This product contains algae extract, which is one of the most comedogenic ingredients out there. I really became disillusioned with Bare Escentuals when I discovered this ingredient in a product intended to fight acne. I guess it keeps you coming back for more when your skin keeps breaking out. I will never buy this product, and I check the ingredients before I buy anything from this line. In fact, the only thing I use from this line anymore is the Mineral Veil, which I love. Truly disappointing.
I can't decide if I would repurchase this or not, I suffer with the hormonal boil on my face which may as well be a mountain! I use this as soon as I feel it rising and then constantly reapply throughout the day.
It does keep the boil at bay I can't deny that but the downside is that even though its stopping it from forming it hurts under the skin and feels sore and bruised and will be like this for a good 3/4 days, so instead of the boil coming to surface it just keeps low and but it hurts, so not sure how good this is for your skin!
Packaging isn't that great either, ever time I open it the powder flies but the brush that comes with it has also been treated with anti bacterial and apparently stays on the brush even after 10 washes.
This product works better than any salicylic or benzoyl peroxide treatments! It is a little small for the price, but it slightly conceals the blemish while treating it which is a bonus. (: Also, it does have a slight sulfur smell, but you can't smell it once it's applied.
Personally I didn't find this made any difference in terms of treating spots; I was fairly happy with the look and feel of it as a concealer but for the price it wasn't good enough for me to justify a repurchase.
Maybe I'm using this wrong? I use it at night as a spot treatment and it has done absolutely nothing for me at all. I've found it to be quite a waste actually. The smell isn't horrible which is about the only plus here other then that it sucks in my opinions. I don't see how anyone could use this as a concealer since its so light. I just dusted it on before I went to bed. Maybe that's why I had no luck?
Hooray for invisible spot treatment! This stuff really does work. It has pretty much replaced my need for the Proactiv mask.
Perfect for when you've got a big scary pimple and you want to keep treating it all day to speed up healing time. You can easily dab this on over makeup.
Also great for night time if you'd prefer not to model your gloppy spot treatments in front of your roommates/romantic partner :)
Conceals while it heals. Light color helps to reduce redness and it dries adult acne up very quickly. I only get one or two bumps with the "monthly breakout", but my son uses this as well and he's a teen.
A little product goes a long way and when used with a great cleanser, this is a remarkable product that truly delivers. Even great when used lightly for prevention.
I'm honestly impressed with this stuff. I've been using it since Christmas every now and then happily, but what really sold me was something that happened just recently. I got one of those pubescent mountain zits on my cheek, you know the ones. They HURT when you touch them and everyone stares? So, I just popped open this stuff, put a small amount on it, and decided to leave it be completely until it healed.
Two days later, it's as good as gone, just a bit pink and raised. I never had this kind of luck with any acne spot treatment, including that pink potion by Mario Bedescu.
I recommend! :]
