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.
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 have tried a lot of moisturizing lotions over the years and this one is still my favorite, I use it mornings and evenings. I definitely recommend it!

Trying for the first time. I immediately loved it. Rich and creamy. I am 67 and have dry skin. My skin feels better than it has in a very long time. It's a good size jar for the price and you only need a small amount. This will be my go to for sure.

My wife loves Bare Minerals products. She recently was raving about this Bare Minerals Butter Drench Restorative Rich Cream. After a few days at the beach my skin needed help so I tried this and it felt amazing! It works and makes your skin feel alive again.

It's just as it's name describes. Goes on smoothly and leaves your skin so soft.
Liz from Modesto, CA
I have oily combo skin, so this really wasnt for me. It made the oil a little worse, but it worked great for a night moisturizer. I would apply the littlest amount and so it lasted me forever. Good texture. Smells decent. Just wasnt for my skin. Still recommend it though to people with dry skin.
Ursla from Fullerton, CA
I absolutely recommend this product for people with fry skin! I am 48 yrs. Old and have dry aging skin, and this is the best moisturizing face cream I've ever used! I use this day and night. My favorite!
Jade from Aurora, Mo
This is the best thing I have ever used. I have really sensitive skin and I unfortunately get eczema around my nose and this is the absolute best!!
Justagirlie from Newburgh, NY
I can't recommend this product enough. I have sensitive, combination skin with oily and textured areas. This product balances my skin and makes it so smooth! It smells so good too! 11/10 recommend!

I have used this moisturizer for years and will continue to do so. It is the absolute best for my incredibly dry, sensitive skin. I have used Dior in the past, but around ten years or so ago, they changed their formula, and I could no longer use the product because of the ingredients and my skin's reaction to them. That moisturizer was more than double the price of this one, and this moisturizer blows that one out of the water! It is so creamy, it does not burn my eyes, it soaks in beautifully and leaves my skin looking dewy, plump, healthy and moisturized all day and night. I live in the north, so we have brutal winters and summers. My skin is always parched and can easily become red and flaky. Not with this! If you have anything other than very dry skin, this might be too rich for you - they have another, lighter moisturizer that might suit your needs better. However, if you're like me and need all the moisture your skin can get, try this! It outperforms much more expensive ones and the ingredients make me feel good about putting it on my face.

I have inctedivky dry skin, especially in winter. My skin was so dry thid winter it was constantly flaky and peeling, sloughing off, and my makeup looked terrible as a result. I switched to Bare Minerals makeup, and decided to try this (along with the poreless toner). I feared it eiuld be greasy or make me break out… not at all! My skin texture and pigment look better than ever. I plan to try more Bare Minerals products in the coming months as i replace my skincare regimen
Vic from Arizona
Amazing for my Arizona dry face. Smell is great and I feel it's a good amount of product for the price.
Becky from Syracuse, NY
I have been using BareMinerals for years. As my skin has aged, very dry areas have developed and Butter Drench relieves the dry, rough parched areas. A little goes a long way, and worth every penny.

Wow absolutely obsessed with this product. I ran through this one, using morning and night for the winter because I enjoyed using it so much. Smell is incredible, it's perfectly lush enough where it feels rich and nourishing on the skin without being too heavy. Perfect for winter time. Serving hydration and I feel like it aids in keeping my skin clear too. I just have no cons and can't wait to explore more bare minerals products because this one is that girl!

I keep coming back to this over and over when my skin is so dehydrated. It takes my "construction paper" feeling skin to hydrated and dewy in just one use.

This is a luxurious face cream that leaves my dry skin finally alive and hydrated. A little goes a long way. I use it morning under an spf and BM powder foundation and at night after BM serum. My skin feels rejuvenated and glowing after I use this. I love the very subtle fresh scent too.
Wilma from Cincinnati, Ohio
I have been using this for awhile now, and will continue to use as long as it's available. It's not greasy, but hydrating.
Dorothy from Pearland, TX
My skin has gotten very dry this winter. With the extreme cold outside, and the heat inside, my skin began to flake. A couple of days with Butter Drench and I'm back to normal. This is my absolute favorite!
Miss Cici from California
Skin feels and looks younger!! A must to soften lines and make the skin glow. Even my husband noticed how beautiful my skin looks. Big difference, even works round the eyes.

great scent. very effective moisturizer.

I have super dry skin, I live in Indiana not far from Lake Michigan so it gets cooolllddd… I was on the hunt for a really good night cream. This moisturizer feels very nice on the skin and very nice when it's first applied. It's a really rich formula which I like. However it just absorbs into my skin so quickly and doesn't give me any lasting moisture. I still wake up with a really dry face. I was using it at the same time as the Cetaphil rich moisturizing cream, and honestly I preferred that one more. It made my skin feel more moisturized than this does. I had high hopes for this and was a little disappointed. I wouldn't say it's terrible but it's definitely not life changing and I won't be re-purchasing.

Everything about it is fabulous !

Tried going without this in favor of trying other newer releases. I missed this one so much. I have VERY dry skin and pretty deep set forehead lines, and this baby really minimized those puppies.
Sheryl from Waukesha, WI
This product is perfect for the winter months-I needed a bit more moisture but this does NOT clog my pores or make my skin oily. I am a huge fan of bareMinerals and this product does NOT disappoint.
