Most Helpful Positive Review Great product
After seeing an article in a magazine (Allure maybe) about best new products, I decided to order this to take advantage of a RARE 20% off even prestige products offer. Ulta, if you're listening, you need to do this more often! This item is not cheap and I have had more than my share of disappointing premium priced products. I am absolutely noticing that my skin seems to be a little more smooth, a little more glowy, a little more...just better! It is easy to apply and only adds seconds to my regular daily beauty ritual. I believe the directions say to use 2 pumps, but 1 is more than enough to cover my face. I am almost 60, have always tried to take good care of my skin, and pretty much a product junkie. This is one of the few products that I have found to have a definite "yes, I see a difference" result.
Most Helpful Critical Review Guys PLEASE READ THIS!!
Under is a list of ingredients..Guys, I am asking you to search each one of these before buying this. My face is severly burned and covered in craters. That's right no zits but craters. Bareminerals products literally ATE THROUGH MY SKIN!! It has been a month and I am still trying not to touch it because it hurts. Bareminerals claims to have good for you products and what I've noticed is with the "skincare" it will work in the beginning and after a few weeks your face is trashed and I'm a 25 year old with wrinkles. Momma can't be having that. Seriously though, they say natural but there are literally none of the "natural" ingredients in their products and the little that might be considered natural are way down in the list which means it is used the least. Go check it out and save you a trip to the dermatologist!!!

Reviewed by 707 customers Dried tacky, did not love it
PammiJ from The a Great Northwest
I was disappointed, this went on smoothly but dried with a tacky, sticky almost, finish. Felt kind of wet. If I hadn't thrown the box away I would have returned it.
I buy this product again and again!
Lee, the Bare Minerals afficianado from Colchester, VT
I apply it every day to my face, neck and chest - my skin is so smooth! I also apply it to my hands and arms daily.

Deeply Hydrates skin
Sleepypup from San Jacinto, CA.
This product is lightweight and is quickly absorbed into skin. It's overpriced, in my opinion.
it's an ok serum
LinaLeo from NJ
this serum in no way blew my mind. I haven't noticed any changes in my skin other than hydration. I chose to give it 4 stars because it is amazingly helpful when applying mineral based liquid sunscreen. I put a couple pumps of this in my hand and the reccomended quarter teaspoon of sunscreen give it a quick mix then apply. it makes for shorter blending times and helps prevent any white casts because my skin just wants to drink it in with this in it. I got the serum in a marked down set, not sure if I will repurchase.
Clear Skin / Hormonal Acne
Jenelle from PA
As a woman in my early thirties, I have found myself struggling to find appropriate topical facial care for my changing combination skin. I was experiencing bouts of hormonal acne on my jaw line, dullness, and porous skin; some lines (Clinique) proved to be too harsh for my sensitive skin )increased outbreaks, redness, dryness) while others appeared to have no impact. Products that were familiar to me in my twenties were only increasing skin irritations, blemishes, and overall dissatisfaction. Because of my interest in making clean, botanical based topical oils, and success with other natural brands (Naturopathica) I was inclined to explore BareMinerals. I HAVE NEVER BEEN HAPPIER! After three weeks on initial use, I could see a MAJOR change in my complexion. Not only was my hormonal acne reducing but my skin became more bright, softer, less porous, more even in color/texture, and more vibrant! This product, in additional to their creams, are light, non-sticky, and almost non-existent in fragrant.
I use this serum in conjunction with Bare Haven lotion and Ageless Genuine eye cream. I feel so confident not only in my skin's appearance but in knowing my skin is absorbing and benefiting from such clean and nourishing ingredients.
I buy this product on a regular basis
Darla from New Berlin, WI
I normally bought this product at the Bare Minerals store. Both their stores and websites are no longer selling their products at this time. They closed their stores & warehouses until they feel it is safe to reopen.
I was thrilled to see you were selling their products from your store online!!!
My favorite serum
Melissa from Ohio
I've tried other moisturizers and serums. This is my favorite, I have very sensitive, acne prone, combination skin.
Healing for my Dry, Red Skin
Em from PA
I use this product twice a day after washing my face and before my moisturizer. I have sensitive skin, so I am always weary of trying new products. This serum truly helps to soften my skin and keep my redness to a minimum. I had no bad reactions from using this serum at all.
JD from Michigan
I LOVE this serum. I bought after receiving a sample in store. I use it every day, and my skin is glowing!
Note: this has not changed my routine hormonal breakouts at all, so it may not be for you if you're looking for a magic acne solution, but the rest of the time, my skin looks healthy and hydrated with this stuff. It isn't heavy or greasy, and a little goes a long way. Will definitely re-buy.
For reference: I am 24 with combination skin and routine hormonal acne in my jaw line.
I'm 55, this product has greatly improved my neck!

I'm 55, this product has greatly improved my neck!
Casi from Florida
I use this between cleanser & moisturizer. I love how soft my skin is and appears brighter.
Jackie from NY
Originally got this as a sample and saw results right away. My complexion was dewy and slightly helped with my discoloration. It has since become part of my daily regimen in morning and night.
Nikki from Blaine Minnesota
I tried this from one of those "gift" sets you can order around xmas. And WOW! My skin responded so well to this serum. It lessened my break outs, gave me a healthy glow, and all around made my skin look really good. It's worth the money!
Maggie from Texas/Kansas
Did absolutely nothing for me. I have combo/oily skin with acne, but I don't have sensitive skin. I could not tell a difference in my skin when I was using it regularly in my routine and when I stopped using it. It may be moisturizing? Maybe if you have dry skin you will like it?
Susan from PA
I love this serum because it is not greasy and lightweight. It contains stable VC and niacinamide, which are helpful for brightening skin. Exactly what I am looking for.
Alexa from Va
I think it is working. At least when I don't use it, I can tell a difference. When I use it, I can't tell. I think it helps moisturizers retain moisture in the skin. Not sure if I would repurchase. For the price, I might try something else. This brand usually irritates my skin, this products does not though. Still not certain. I have very dry skin, maybe this is better for normal skin types.
Would continue to buy this product!
OMA from NEW YORK
I love this serum. No complaints about the product. This is my second bottle. It is worth the money!
Dimic from Middle of everywhere
I am a product junkie and am not easily impressed. Since Christmas I have really pared down my skincare routine in order to heal my moisturizer barrier which was damaged from over exfoliating. It was looking so much better but still not where I wanted it after 6 weeks. Then I got a sample of this product in a beauty box I subscribe to and holy wow, I noticed a difference after the first use. I didn't get my hopes up too high but every time I used it my skin got brighter and smoother. Even my giant pores look diminished. All I'm currently doing is washing with an oil based cleanser, a hydrating toner, followed by this and moisturizer. My skin is just glowing.
Bfesler from Phoenix, AZ
This product combined with their Bare Haven moisturizer made my skin the best it has ever been! It is a costly routine so I don't always keep up with it like I should, but I HIGHLY recommend.
Bambii from Lake Worth, Texas
I first got this in an ipsy bag. I would use it along with my skin care routine & I was upset that I ran out. My skin was left smooth & glowing!!
It was a must to purchase a full bottle of this !!
Glad I tried it.
SEM from NoVA USA
This works really well to make my skin appear more health and it gives me a nice glow.
I love this serum!
Alex M from Orlando fl
I love using this morning and night after cleansing. I knew I didn't need it too much for the wrinkle reducing but it brightens and seems to tighten me up!
This product makes my skin feel fantastic.
The Diz from Beautiful shores of Lake Erie
Use this as a base then day or night cream. Received two free samples from Ulta before Christmas and I'm hooked! Bought a bottle because it's worth every penny.
