Rated 4.39 out of 5 stars
Only moisturizer that has ever worked for my combo/sensitive skin and it soaks in and doesn't just sit on my face. It evens out my skin tone and isn't greasy at all. I never leave reviews but had to for this one! PLEASE don't ever get rid of this!! Also love the fact that it's clean and has very few ingredients bc it doesn't irritate my skin or make my eyes burn. Thank u!
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.

Love the lotion; great travel size; but awful smell like curdled milk.

I love Bare Minerals but this lotion smells horrible.

I bought 2 Pureness face moisturizer in advance of needing it to avoid running out of my face moisturizer when I need it and mainly because Smart Combination face moisturizer which I've used for years was discontinued to my surprise. Once I finished using every drop of Smart Combination which I loved it's light hydrating formula that smelled fantastic, I started using Pureness. It is unmistakably inferior to Smart Combination. It's a heavier/thicker formula which doesn't provide the same level of hydration and softness on the skin, and it smells bad. Needless to say, I am extremely disappointed and I'm stuck with 2 bottles because I didn't try the product within the 30 day return period as I assumed it would be a comparable product. This product is not a good replacement for Smart Combination moisturizer even though it's being peddled as such. Listen to your long time customers like me whose been using BareMinerals products for years and bring back Smart Combinations moisturizer!!! BTW, I also use Pure Plush gentle deep cleansing foam and Skinlongevity serum and love both products. Smart Combination was the moisturizer that rounded out my daily face and neck skincare routine and boy do I miss it!!!

I've been looking for a moisturizer that doesn't hurt the bank and came across this one in store. Well I must have tried so many before this one to overlook its odd smell! Though it is a bit irritating having to deal with the smell for the first few hours, it does the job. Nothing to rave about compared to other products I've had. Probably won't get again.

Clean, light. Does the job without feeling heavy. Goes on under makeup and does not affect coverage, doesn't cake up or smear even if you wear the "matte" type foundation.

Clears up my dry skin quickly! I love how smooth and light this moisturizer feels.

Though a bit pricy for the amount of product, very little goes a long way. Super light on the skin but super moisturizing.
M Gee from Pennsylvania
I absolutely love the product! I have it on autoship so I never experience a single day without! Total skin life saver < 3

Smells and feels good on my face.

This moisturizer arrived yesterday and I applied it to my face and redness from my rosacea was reduced within an hour of application. Tightness and itchiness was also gone upon application. My rosacea is mostly mild but can flare up with welts, pimples and dreaded redness. I can't remember the name of the moisturizer from bareMinerals that was in a similar container way back18 years ago and discontinued but Pureness Soothing Light is reminiscent of that product. I am elated to have found this! With respect to the complaints about the scent, I notice a scent upon application but it fades and is by no means a deal breaker for me. The scent is not strong nor offensive and is a small detail in the big picture of what this moisturizer is doing for my face in general and with respect to my rosacea. My skin is very sensitive and it had reached a point where anything I used on it caused redness and breakouts. I knew within hours my face was going to be happy with this product. I will update if there is a change. I use original loose powder foundation and it goes on very well after applying this moisturizer. I do wait a few minutes to let the Pureness be absorbed.

I am not a bareMinerals person and was not expecting to love this but I do! My skin does not absorb lotion quickly and so I have a difficult time with finding something I can put on in the AM before I do my makeup and have it full absorbed. I've stopped putting lotion on in the morning for this reason until I bought this. This does the trick better than anything else I've ever tried.
It is EXTREMELY light and easy to absorb but effective. It's nice and soothing and a no brained for me. 10/10 would reccomend!

This product is all it is advertised to be. It feels light and clean on my skin.

This product is very light and goes on smoothly on my skin. A little of it goes a long way!

Great Moisturizer love the feel packaging, skin feels so good after using it. But why it smells soooo bad hard to use.
Jesse from Texas
This moisturizer does go on light and easy with the consistency of sunscreen without the stickiness. What I don't care for is the smell. Even though it is scent free, it has an off smell to it that makes me not want to put it on my face. I do use a lot of bareMinerals makeup and I love it. This was my first time trying their skin care.

Got this product in a sample of Bare Minerals at Christmas. I have oily/dry skin and am older. This stuff is amazing.
Country Girl from Joshua Texas
I use this morning and night. I have combo dry and oily skin and this is awesome. I hate anything with a smell to it but this is very neutral. I got this in a sample pack of Bare Minerals at Christmas. Yes will definitely keep it in my go to line up.

Light moisturizer but works wonders. Love using this in the morning, worth the price because you get a lot os uses out of it. I always have this product stocked!
Mamaw from Evansville IN
Facial moisturizer light and go on easily with no odor was what I wanted Bare Minerals discontinued the one I had been using this product does not meet my needs very disappointed in it, not the usual quality of Bare Minerals products.
Kaygon4 from MI
I love this moisturizer!! Layers well over serums and my complexion rescue layers well over this!
Amanda from upstate NY
overall, I love this moisturizer. the only reason I took one star off is that it smells absolutely terrible. and I know it is 2021 and it is hip to have everything fragrance free (thank you hyram.) not saying I want it bogged down with a bunch of essential oils, but if you could figure out a way to make it smell a little more pleasant, I wouldn't complain.
with that said, this moisturizer is probably the best moisturizer I've used in years. the only other brand I've used in the past five years that made my skin feel or look this good would be tula. I've also tried lancome, paulas choice, Cera be and mary Kay. NONE of these brands did anything for my skin. I'm using the entire bare minerals skin care routine at this point and couldn't be happier with my results.
I am a 32 year old white woman, with normal / combination skin, for reference.

This moisturizer feels so amazing on my skin. I love using it as a part of my prepping for makeup and even just after cleaning my face

I would like to update my last review. While this moisture is not the same as Smart Combination (which I still miss), it's really grown on me after using it for several months. I appreciate that there aren't any added perfumes and it truly is pure. It does leave my face feeling soft and hydrated. I do highly recommend this product for anyone looking to hydrate their normal skin with a lighter moisturizer. I love and trust bareminerals, always have and alway will.

I have yet to try a skincare product from bareMinerals that I don't love. My skin is combination more oily and acne prone and the bareMinerals Pureness Smoothing Light Moisturizer is my favorite daytime moisturizer that I use each and everyday without a breakout or causing my skin to be greasy like other hydrators I have tried in the past from other brands. The scent is light but not overpowering by any means. I also recomment their Bareminerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Sleeping Gel Cream
