I received this along with the cleanser complimentary for my honest review. I really appreciate the use of clean ingredients. I think it delivers on its promise of reduced redness, hydration, and calming the skin. I would prefer not putting coconut oil on my face as it tends to clog my pores, but I havent noticed this worsening since using the product for over a month. I really love this for using as a night time eye cream though. The elasticity in the skin around my eyes has dramatically improved. I wish I had a before and after photo to share. I have combination skin, so I mostly use it around my eyes and as a spot treatment for dry areas.
I have been a bareminerals customer since the age of 15, using mainly the makeup until I could afford the skincare too. I'm now 33.
I have always had problematic sensitive skin. I had struggled to find a skincare line that worked with my skin. Finally, I found the following combo about 8 years ago!! My skin has been clear radiant and calm!
- pure plush wash
- skinsorials serum
- SMART COMBINATION MOISTURIZER
I have been using that routine ever since the products came out. But bare minerals recently discontinued the smart combination moisturizer. I tried the "replacement moisturizers" pureness and poreless. Both made my skin irritated and break out.
I'm so sad that my skin is breaking out after being clear for nearly 8 years. I'm really struggling again, nothing else works, now that my go-to moisturizer is gone :/
Please bring back the smart combination moisturizer. Customers come to depend on certain products.

I bought wanted smart combination. It worked for my skin. The lady at the store advised me to try a new producted. Way to waxy and made my skin dry. I took it back. I tried pureness. Still dry. I ended up going back to olay regenerist. Please tell me what i can use. Oily skin but yet dry.

This has been my Miracle product. My face stays red and as long as I use this moisturizer it keeps my redness down I don't wear makeup as much as I used to.

Once again, BareMinerals replaces a great product with a less-than-great product. I loved the combination moisturizer that this new product replaced. I used the old moisturizer for years, and was disappointed when they replaced it with the "Pureness Soothing Light Moisturizer." The first thing you should know is that it isn't "light." It's a pretty heavy moisturizer, which is good if you have super dry skin. But the biggest turn-off for me is the smell. This moisturizer has a very distinct, weird smell. It honestly smells kind of rancid, as if some ingredient in it has gone bad. (If you've ever taken herbal supplements, then you know the funky smell that the pills and the bottle have. It's that sort of smell, lol) I've noticed a weird/bad smell with a lot of BareMinerals new skincare products. When they did their last overhaul and got rid of all the great products, a lot of the new products are far inferior and they all have a strange smell.

Disappointed in this. Just not moisturizing enough for my dry skin. No matter how much I applied it didn't feel like it added anything at all to my skin. I would recommend this for oily skin. I returned because it was expensive and just couldn't use.

I read through the first 20 or so reviews and was surprised I never saw anyone mention how good this lotion is at reducing redness. With only 15 ingredients and these results you can't go wrong. It's lightweight, but still moisturizing!

Have used Smart Combination moisturizer for years. Only moisturizer that was light feeling and didn't make my skin red. This is too heavy especially in summer. I will have to find something else.

I prefer the one they had before this. The other one had zero residue, but I will say even though this one leaves your hands feeling sticky it actually blends and absorbs quite well after you put in on your face. I would suggest waiting a good 15 to 30 before applying any primers and makeup after this.

I would recommend this product to anyone.

What a disappointment to find out that the Smart Combination moisturizer was discontinued. I've been buying this formula since my son was a teenager with ache problem. He bought this and another moisturizer that was recommended but both did not come close to the Smart Combination moisturizer. My son has oily skin and the Smart Combination was perfect for his skin - never had problems again. Sad to say but I have to find another brand at this time.
Gingersnap94 from College Station, TX
I was skeptical that this would cause me to breakout due to how thick the formula is but I've had no problems. The fragrance isn't the best when you first put it on but goes away once the moisturizer is absorbed.
MEP from WarnerRobins Ga
Moisturizer was easy to apply and absorbed really fast with no tacky or greasy feel. Left my skin soft.
But by the 4th day my face was itching really bad. I guess my sensitive skin could not handle the moisturizer
audra23 from Alabama
I love this moisturizer. It reminds me of bare minerals skin care from a few years ago. Gentle with no fragrance. Absolutely amazing. Would love to see a thick night cream with same idea of no fragrance or essential oils! I have sensitive skin with eczema, and this stuff did not irritate me at all. 10/10 Bare Minerals!

This is my FAVORITE moisturizer. I try to buy it in bulk whenever I can because I love it so much. It is so light and refreshing, and never causes or contributes to breakouts. It also builds nicely under my makeup. It is literally perfect product, and makes my skin feel hydrated all day.
Rachel from Phoenix, AZ
I LOVED the Smart Combo moisturizer. I was told to try this moisturizer as a sub, and it's honestly too thick for combo skin. My t-zone has been breaking out and it smells and feels like Sunscreen. I'm sure it works great for other skin types; I'm bummed that it's not working for mine, and I'll be looking for another product.

This moisturizer calms my skin within seconds. It's so hydrating and leaves my skin feeling hydrated without the heavy feeling. I was looking at the ingredients and they look super minimal and clean compared to other brands I was comparing it with. I'm hooked!
Casi from Orlando
I love all the Bare Minerals skincare products and this is no exception. It moisturizers without leaving my skin feeling greasy and keeps my skin soft.
Kake from Springfield, il
Does not break me out. Very light weight bc I have oily skin so it's perfect!

I have the most sensitive skin ever, Clinique recently discontinued my holy grail of lotions and so the new hunt began, a ton of money later I found this lotion! I'm so happy I did!! It goes on and sinks into your skin, the look of my pores has improved and no adverse reactions!!! Thank goodness I found this! I haven't tried the cleaner yet but I will next! Also I love that this isn't loaded with synthetic fragrance as that both irritates my skin and then I can't sleep with a super perfumed lotion on my face, THANK YOU bare minerals for a clean product

They're very creamy and you don't need too much when you swatch or apply because it's that great. These are some of the most creamy, pigmented, and inexpensive

I had used the Smart Combination moisturizer for several years and loved it. When I wanted to purchase it again I found it had been discontinued. I tried the Pureness Moisturizer and do not like it at all. It is too creamy- not a light gel like the Smart Combination and left my face feeling greasy - not refreshingly moisturized.
Swanky from Knoxville, TN
I use this product every time after I wash my face. I've used other moisturizers before that leave my face shiny and greasy looking- this one does NOT, which I love!!

I received this complimentary from Influensters to try. My main complaint with this moisturizer is that it smells like dog food. Putting it on day and night made me feel like my face smelt bad, but the scent never lingered. It was also a bit greasy for my taste. When I wore it at night, it was great and it soaked into my skin by the morning. But when I wore it during the day, it made me feel like a complete greaseball by the time I got home from work, and I dont wear face makeup to work so I know it was the moisturizer. I will say that I did like the pump. It dispensed just the right amount of product. Its not bad, someone else might love it. Just wasnt for me
Shannon from Tampa Florida
I use this every morning after I wash my face. Just a couple of pumps goes a long way. This really has helped my redness on my face so much that I don't have to wear foundation!
LizzyLiz from Illinois
I was really hoping this was "light" as it is described but it makes your face sticky. It does hydrate but I personally would not purchase again. Especially since it is a little pricey, I'd rather pay for something I truly love.

After the True Oasis gel from BM, this is what I reach for if I want something a little bit thicker. Usually use this overnight or just during winter when I need some extra hydration. But not too oily and soaks in well!
