Skin Care Review: Bare Escentuals Bare Vitamins Skin Re-ver Upper

by Desirae Beberniss, San Mateo, CA, US

Adverse Effects

Produces a mattifying effect (makes skin less shiny)

Applied under makeup, this will leave you with many blackheads at the end of the day.

This caused extreme breakouts on my neck (similar reaction to the boil-like pimples described in a review of the Bare Escentuals Starter Pack) and blackheads all over my face.

It feels good when you initially put it on, and it leaves a pleasant mattifying effect behind. Moisturizer is necessary over this because skin will appear dry if using Bare Escentuals or another powder foundation over top of it. There is no visible benefit to using this at night after washing your face.

I saw no overall improvements in my skin tone after using this product for two weeks - my skin looks awful because my pores are so clogged, my neck is broken out, and my pores overall look larger.

I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.
