Most Helpful Positive Review Absorbs well, leave skin soft and smooth with no shine.
I received a free sample of the Bareminerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum from PINCHme for my honest review. I'm 34 and have never used anti-aging products. My skincare has always focused on acne, dark spots, and pore treatments. I have combination skin so I get excessively oily on my T-zone. The sample size I received was only good for 1 day of use (morning and evening) so I cannot attest to their claims, however, I can talk about how well the product did on my skin. I applied the Bareminerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum after cleaning and toning my face in the morning and I applied my gel moisturizer after the serum absorbed into my skin. The absorption was pretty quick which I really liked because that meant that I didn't have to waste so much time before applying my gel moisturizer. Once the Bareminerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum absorbed, I noticed my skin was really soft and smooth. I went about my did and did not experience the T-zone shine I normally have which meant this was a product I could use because it wouldn't make me feel extra oily. My evening application was the same I applied it after cleansing and toning the serum absorbed fairly quickly and then I applied my gel moisturizer. I woke up the next morning and my skin was again nice and soft. I give this four stars based on the experience I was able to have with the serum I will have to reassess my review after trying the Bareminerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum for the full 4 weeks, which is when their study claims to have shown results.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good Marketing for an Average Serum
After only a day of use, here are my initial thoughts:
- I love the clean, vegan formula of the serum. Its awesome to see this is become more of a norm and that this product is pushing that norm further in a positive direction.
- Im fairly skeptical of the boosted long life herb (aka coastal hog fennel) inclusion. The claim is that because people who live long lives in Okinawa eat coastal hog fennel, its somehow going to have anti-aging skin benefits. A quick google search on the plant only shows benefits of increased glucose metabolism when consumed. Even then, these sources arent on their face actually from peer-reviewed scientific work. Looking at the serum as a whole, Im pretty sure the long life herb is just a marketing ploy for an otherwise run of the mill anti-aging serum.
- There was so much packaging. The product is labeled as clean, yet it was sent in a shipping box that was too big with too much tissue paper. Im not sure if this is on the company or Influenster, but Id expect both to be better about being environmentally conscious.
- The bottle looks nice but the cap seems to be a little small, so it can be tricky to open and close the bottle easily.
- The serum is lightly scented with an airy, vaguely floral scent. Its not overpowering at all and smells fresh. I really like it.
- The serum feels a lot thinner, more liquid than others I have used.
- Two pumps was about right to cover my face and neck.
- Some other serums Ive used have an instant, fresh feeling on my skin. I didnt have that reaction with this serum.
- No sticky, heavy or otherwise uncomfortable feeling. The serum seemed to seep into my skin fairly quickly.
Overall, my impression right now is that its nothing too special. Id love to be proven wrong.

I was able to try the bareminerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum from Pinchme. I thought this product had a nice scent, thats always a plus because I dont like overwhelming scents. It felt very very silky smooth as I was massaging it onto my skin. It seemed to absorb well and didnt leave an oily film upon my skin. I enjoyed being able to try this product.

I received the Bareminerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum from Pinchme and there not much I can say about it since it was a small packet sample. All I can say the texture of it was watery and a bit sticky
My new favorite
Manda from Knoxville TN
I received this as a free product sample and I knew it would be good because it's Bareminerals. I have to say though the longer I use it the more I can't go without it lol. It's definitely my new favorite serum!
TamV from PA
Bareminerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum is a very nice product. I received a sample free from pinchMe to review. This product made my skin feel very soft. I did not see any improvement in my skin as I've only used this a short time, but it kept my skin hydrated feeling. I would continue to use this product!
Makes my skin feel softer
Jodi from Portland, OR
I tried the Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum with high hopes, and I wasn't disappointed. It has a pleasant smell and slides over my skin with a smooth texture. Best of all, my skin feels smoother and more hydrated.
AN1981 from CA
I love trying new products and had the opportunity to try bareminerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum via PINCHme in exchange for my honest review. I love bareminerals products to begin with, so I had high hopes for the experience with this product. I love how well it absorbs into the skin and the way it makes my skin feel. It smells good too, which is always a plus! I prefer totally natural products, but this one is not too bad with regard to ingredients. Overall, I feel the product met my expectations and worked as described.

I received a sample of bareMinerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum from PINCHme. This serum isn't greasy and has a good texture.
It felt smooth on my skin and absorbed quickly. It smells good too! I checked the regular price...way to pricey for me but from the sample (about two applications) it left a good impression.
If I ever want to splurge on myself, I would consider purchasing to add to my facial routine

TOO expensive, but a very nice product
fwa from Oregon
I received a tiny packet of Bare Minerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum to sample and review from PinchMe.
This is my HONEST REVIEW.
This was a pleasant product to use. The scent was nice, not too strong but smelled like summer. To me it smelled like summer, a bit floral but not too much floral cuz I don't like flower perfumes for myself.
I am always skeptical when trying face creams, serums, liquids, facial oils, etc. They usually end up being gummy and tacky on my skin or too oily. This was neither. It absorbed quickly. Not sure about any product claims for beauty enhancement. I did not see any. But using the lotion was a pleasant experience.
-- If this product was not so expensive I may actually buy it. Until then I will stick with my jojoba oil and moisturizer from Desert Essence.
Thank you for the opportunity to try this product.
I RECOMMEND IT if you can afford it.

While I have long been a fan of Bareminerals products, I was not sold on the Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum. After using the serum for a week I did not see results or feel as it was working well. I like Bareminerals brand I just was not impressed with this product from them.
Eri from Birmingham, Alabama
I received this from PINCHme. It was a great product and I'm glad I got to try it. It left my face feeling soft and smooth. It didn't leave my face sticky or oily like other serums I've tried before.

I used it after toner and before moisturising. It seems to make the moisturiser stick better but too little sample received to fully see long term effect
