Most Helpful Positive Review Hands down the BEST face cream ever!
I finally found the best skin care products for my dry & sensitive skin!
I have sensitive skin and I find that especially in the winter, my face is dry, red and cracked with frequent breakouts. No cleanser or moisturizer seemed to help. They would only make my skin break out more and even more dry.
In February, I walked into a Bare Escentuals Boutique @ Tuttle Mall and Abby walked me through the products, then sampled them on me. I cannot thank her enough! She suggested my dry skin was actually breaking me out and creating the redness and breakouts. She suggested that I use the Oil Obsessed Cleanser, Skin Longevity and Butter Drench. It was the best money I've spent on skincare!
The cleanser goes on dry, so I usually massage it into my face right before I jump into the shower (feels like a spa treatment, goes on so silky and easy massages into skin--super relaxing too). The light essential oils scent is relaxing, and it feels great on my dry skin. Once it comes into contact with water, it turns milky and washes right off. After the shower, I apply the Skin Longevity and then the Butter Drench. My skin instantly felt healthier and my breakouts cleared up in a week and I've been using it for about 2 months now.
I've read other reviews that say that the fragrance of this skincare line burns their skin. If anyone's skin has tiny cracks or blemishes that are open, any cleanser or lotion will burn slightly. Plus, Abby told me that the fragrance is from essential oils and therefore is a natural fragrance. I noticed some mild burning with the Skin Longevity and Butter Drench randomly (not every time, just once in awhile), but its nothing I haven't felt with other creams/cleanser and it never any lasting irritation and no redness. If anything, it might be the essential oil fragrance. I've used lavender and tea tree oil mixed with oils at home and they can sting a bit too. But like I said, never any lasting redness or damage to my skin. In fact, my skin has never looked better!
Okay, so the Butter Drench is h-e-a-v-e-n-l-y! Out of the 3 step skin care routine, the Butter Drench cream is my favorite! It goes on like a silky and rich spa treatment. The light scent is lovely. I have found that sometimes it does burns a little, but I think its because my skin is very dry/sensitive and sometimes has tiny scratches/opens that react to the essential oil fragrances. However, it is always temporary and goes away without leaving redness and doesn't bother me at all.
I truly believe this lotion has saved my skin! I thought I might break out because of how rich and creamy it is, but the opposite happened. My skin cleared up, and now looks soft, dewy, plump and more elastic! My skin has not looked this good since before puberty! I feel so pampered every time I use it. Love love love!!!
The only con is that the Butter Drench is a rich cream, and takes about 10 min to set into my skin, so if I go to bed before it has absorbed, there is a slight greasy feel against my pillow (sounds gross, but honestly the pros outweigh the cons and I haven't noticed any stains on my pillow.)
So glad that I finally found skin care products to rescue my face! It feels so soft and beautiful.
Most Helpful Critical Review Bring Back Fragrance Free Moisturizer
I wanted to like the new Skin Longevity line, but unfortunately, it has fragrance in it. The product itself is great, but for people who have severe allergies, this is not the product for them. Please bring back the Fragrance FREE Purely Nourishing Moisturizer!! I have used BM products for years, and every time I find an amazing product from you, you no longer offer it. I used to use Sorbet blush, and it was discontinued; however, nothing in your replacement line compared to the original, shimmer free soft peach blush. I am very disappointed that I have to begin a new search for the perfect moisturizer since your former product was that one.

I used this several years ago and strayed away but have come back due to changes and drying out in my skin. Using both the vital power fusion and this product, my skin is beginning to rehydrate and feel like it did when it was younger and more supple!! Very pleased with the way my skin is feeling.

I use this moisturizer every morning and every evening. It keeps my face soft and makes my makeup easier to apply. I won't use anything else!
Best Moisturizer Ever!
ScooterNinja from Atlanta, GA
I have been using Butter Drench for years. It is by far the best deep moisturizing cream I have found and I recommend it to anyone with dry skin issues. I use it year-round and am very pleased with how well it keeps my skin moisturized and looking good. It is not greasy feeling and leaves you with soft, supple skin.

I used to have dry patches on my face and I've tried high-end moisturizers that didn't really do much. This made my face super moisturized all day even with make-up. This is my go to moisturizer and it's so affordable.
Kathy from San Antonio
I really needed some quick, deep moisture. I feel like this did it!
Great for very dry skin and smells great
Emma from San Francisco
Ive tried many high-end moisturizers and this is always the lotion I go back to. Its so so moisturizing, doesnt mess with my makeup, and smells amazing. Plus you get a good amount for the price point!
Couldnt recommend more.
I am super dry!

love this face cream!! I have never found anything that can even come close to the product!!!
middleagedmom from BucksCo. PA
I love this face cream. It doesn't feel too greasy, but does a great job moisturizing my skin. My skin tends to be dry now after a lifetime of being combo. I am allergic to just about everything, so this cream does not do anything bad to my skin. I love it. It feels wonderful to put this on after a shower at night, or in the morning before my makeup and it doesn't make a mess out of my makeup. My skin doesn't look chalky either.
Great for very dry skin
Kat from Cerritos, CA
This moisturizer is currently a staple in my skin care routine. I have to be careful with what I use because I can get eczema flare ups if I am not careful. I notice a difference in my skin if I do not use this moisturizer for a few days. I have dry sensitive skin and this works to soothe my complexion and help me maintain moisture. I use a hyaluronic acid serum before this and that works great together. My skin isn't sensitive to it, but if you have extremely sensitive skin, I would be wary of the fragrance. While naturally derived it is from bergamot so that may be sensitizing to some very sensitive people. I love it for me though.
Works very well!
kay22 from Detroit, MI
I bought this product a few months ago, and I still have a good amount left. It works so well with very dry skin, which I get from the face wash I use. A small amount goes a very long way, and it makes my face super smooth and soft. It's a bit pricey but 100% worth it!
Perfect for my dry skin
Sonia from Maryland
I have very dry skin so this cream is perfect for me. It hydrates without feeling too heavy or greasy. The texture is rich and creamy and the scent is light. Works wonders during the winter season. Some may find it too heavy during the summer but I wear it year round and I love it.
The best moisturizer!
Thiccbih from Memphis TN
My mother in law was the one who got me hooked on this brand. This moisturizer gives you a smooth buttery finish. I will forever buy this!
It's very rich!
Kaleigh from Michigan
This rich moisturizer feels great on my super dry skin. It smells like a lot of bare minerals products .. it's a weird scent .. but it works
The best for dry skin
Mrs. D from Saint Louis, MO
This is the best face cream ever used in my 41 years of life. It is absolutely perfect for a night cream, might be too thick for day time.
ines_VE from Antwerp (Belgium)
I have very dry, thight skin with red, dry patches. I've tried a lot of moisturizers to fit my skin. Since the first time I've used this, I felt immediate relief. After a few days the redness dissappeared and my skin looks healthier, less irritated. It smells nice too. I was a bit concerned that I would get pimples or break-outs in my T-zone, but that's not the case. My skin got very irritated when I used other clean, natural options, but bare minerals doensn't irritate my skin at all, it soothes it. I will definately buy this again, worth the money!
Love this stuff!
mrsmatt from Arcadia, IN
I have extremely dry skin. I could (almost) put vaseline on my face and it would soak in. Very few moisturizers have left my skin feeling hydrated, but this one is great. I purchased this a while back and was satisfied with it; however, I'm always searching for the next new thing. I've purchased moisturizers that cost 3x what this one does and they don't even compare. Needless to say, I returned to this one. And more for the "pro" column - the scent is pleasant and the product doesn't irritate my eyes, as so many of them do. I whole-heartedly disagree with the other reviewers that state it's not that moisturizing, I'm completely satisfied.
Feels wonderful! Like a very expensive moisturizer!
Gypsy from Truckee CA
Rich and creamy not to oily!
Not that great
No from Ulta
It has a very heavy consistency and doesn't really soak into the skin. Sort of just sat on top and was very difficult to add foundation on as well. It smells great but I don't see the benefits of healing my dry skin. Will finish it but don't plan on buying it again :(
I use every night and day
ALVA from Virginia
My skin is so smooth all day long and I look forward to getting home and washing my face so I can re-apply before bed. It smells fresh and clean. Not strong. I have definitely noticed inmprovements to my skin as far is clearer, smoother and no blemishes.
Absolutely the Best
sarah779 from Alaska
I bought this moisturizer a month ago and it is absolutely the best I have ever used. I love the feel of it, it smells wonderful, and my skin loves it. I had one particular spot that was crusty and dry and it cleared it up within a week. It's a very dry climate here and I'm over 65 so dry skin is a big problem. This moisturizer is the best!
Not that hydrating
Jen from Texas
It doesn't transform dry or very dry skin so I wouldn't recommend. It feels like a silicone primer on top and although does make your skin feel smooth and matte, skin is still dry afterward and it is a kind of a heavy feeling on top, which is why I have to layer this with something else to get the hydration I need for very dry skin. However it also makes layered products not as hydrating either. So for the price and claims I will give it 3 stars.
Not quite that hydrating
Jen from Dallas
I wouldn't say this cream was for dry or very dry skin. It makes the skin matte but isn't very hydrating or anything so I was still dry afterward. After applying within seconds it is dried and in hours your skin is dry and may still be flakey. I can imagine using this as a primer perhaps because it feels smoothing. I'm not sure about their claims, to be a rich restorative butter drench cream. I don't think so. It's also expensive hence why I'm only giving it three stars. It does smell good, like an orangey-piney fresh scent. I would not repurchase.
I would buy this product again.

THE BUTTER DRENCH CREAM IS AMAZING......

I USE THE CREAM MORNING AND NIGHT .
The BEST- regardless of season
MeadowMom from California
My absolute favorite moisturizer! I use day and night, regardless of if it's winter or not. It does not leave my face feeling oily or greasy. A little goes a long way, but I still manage to use it up pretty quickly. I loooove it and it's worth the price.
