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! :]
Hate this product!!!! love BE foudation and use it everyday however the blemish therapy after 2 applications has left me wiith a break out, the areas i applied to are red, feel sore and irritated!
will defo not be using this again, i dont know if ive had a allergic reaction or what but its not good!!!
This product is amazing - unfortunately it is exhorbantly over priced. You used to could purchase the larger container for around $20 - $22 - that is, until Bare Escentuals became greedy and downsized to this miniscule little container with barely enough powder in there for 3 or 4 applications - jacked that price up to to $18 - $20. But the product is great - I would have rated it a total 5 if it were not for the price and downsizing. Maybe they are not making enough of a profit in their other lines, so they are trying to offset the difference in this one product.
This stuff does not work. It does absolutely nothing to clear pimples at all and believe me I have tried this one already formed spots, spots about to break out and ones that are already clearing up. I've also tried it without and without makeup and as part of my routine at night and in the morning, none of it makes any difference. It doesn't soothe redness either.
This is far too light to work as a concealer and just leaves me looking kinda grey, I'm a fairly light as well so I think this is lighter than BMs lightest shade.
There is no lockable sifter on the pot so it goes flipping everywhere, it also goes on quite course so makes my skin look and feel very dry and powdery, even if I use the "Swirl tap buff" method to apply and it smells too, which you kind of expect from a product with sulphur in but none the less it not pleasant when you are trying to treat a spot on your nose.
The packaging is rubbish, it's expensive for the amount you get and the fact it does not work although the brush it comes with is ok and can be used for other stuff.
Total waste of money, really disappointed, definitely will not repurchase or reccomend to anyone.
