Pure Transformation Night Treatment - null
Pure Roman Extravaganza
This product must be one of the most misunderstood, misused and understated of the entire Bare Minerals catalogue. This product is truly amazing but in order to reach the same conclusion I have it must be used correctly in order to achieve the result. Upon initial use I was not impressed. I found the scent of the product to be quite obnoxious and overpowering and the result on my skin to be quite drying and producing a somewhat grey hue to my general tone. However, I now understand that I was applying this product absolutely incorrectly. It is a common misconception that with all Bare Minerals products that they are decanted into the lid and applied with an individual brush. This is not the case here. In order to use this in the correct fashion you must turn the container upside down and tap the bottom once or twice with the lid firmly in place. When the lid is then removed, a tiny amount of the powder is then visible on the brush. This leads on to mistake number two - the amount of product used. Less is always more with Bare Minerals products and that is certainly the case here. Where this one is concerned, not even a quarter of what would be used with the Original Foundation is correct. Thus, applying incorrectly and with too much product will lead to both the overpowering odour, dryness and the grey hue described above. Finally, the method of application. Bare Minerals provide a brush for use with this product which is in fact fixed to the lid, giving no other option (unless the product was decanted into a separate lid the way I did). It is essential to use this. Most reviewers have described how it was difficult to handle, although again this is largely a matter of understanding. For best results, the brush must be used with a heavy hand and circular motions on the skin. Unlike other Bare Minerals products, this is not delicately wafted over the skin. The motion must be circular and reasonably hard. The end result - if this has been done correctly - is skin which is very slightly red through the brushing action. Not a great deal of product is ever used and each time one area of the face or head (if like me you are completely bald by choice and thus have a larger area to cover) is covered, it is important to screw the lid back into place firmly, reverse the container and tap the bottom of it a couple of times to re-coat the brush. The end result will be a smooth, even finish which actually looks very pleasing. The scent is hardly noticeable because so little product is ever used. Ideally, use this not more than 30 minutes before going to bed, as the real magic seems to occur during the hours of sleep. Finally, it is important that before any other product is applied the following morning, a standard cleansing routine is observed. It would most definitely be a mistake to apply anything else directly over this. The results will become apparent with time (starting from one week after first use), with a reduction in pore size, a healthier complexion which is both more youthful and fresh and skin which is much firmer to the touch. I would most definitely not recommend using this product during the day as some reviewers have, as it is much more about results than a polished look - remember, this is a treatment rather than make-up. I strongly recommend this product but use it as per the above instructions and rest assured you will not be disappointed.
I ordered the Pure Transformation Night Treatment and it arrived two days ago, I have used it for the last two nights and already I can see amazing results. My normally very dry skin has suddenly been 'transformed', it's glowy, and so smooth and soft when I wake in the morning. My skin has always been very dry therefore I have always shied away from anything powdery as it always exacerbates the dryness and settles into my lines making my skin look cakey. Not so with Bare Minerals it makes my skin feel like velvet. I would never have believed a product could have made such a difference in such a short space of time. I have now purchased a 7 piece set of Bare Minerals products and cannot wait for them to arrive. Bare Minerals is a discovery I want to share with everyone I know, it's so amazing!!
If you get into the habit of putting this on every night, you will have reduced pores. I've seen it, used it and LOVE IT! This is a bit irritating to the nose and if you have a cat, don't be surprised if they lick your face. Mine do. Make sure you only use it at night because it's so strong bareMinerals has it for night time since your skin gets extra sensitive with any light.
Not sure yet-scent and packaging are not the best
I just started to try this product. The container is bulky and it's difficult to load the right amount on the brush. Then you have to re-load about two to three times, which means screwing the brush top back on again. It's very easy to over-load and it seems like wasting product, which you don't want to do because of the price. It's more work than I would like as when I am getting ready for bed I am so tired I need simplicity.
Also, I can't say the scent is pleasant. It reminds me of the smell of maple syrup. I don't want to smell like that going to bed, I want to smell 'pretty'.
I will continue to use and get the hang of its use down to a routine, and hopefully I will be a fan of this product once I've been using it longer.
Works brilliantly though can be a bit drying
I love how confident I feel now going to bed looking like I am wearing a thin layer of foundation especially when I know it is doing my skin good. This is a very good product and only adds a few seconds to evening beauty routine. My only reason for not giving 5 stars/hearts is that it can be a little drying, though that has actually helped my spots so not really a complete.
glad i did
I was disappointed when the package arrived because I ordered the wrong one. I thought of just trying the product since I didnt want to pay for the return shipping.
Glad I kept it! my face has been glowing since I started using the product. I had a lot of imperfections and sun burns due to staying too much in the sun during a vacation in a tropical country.
My friends asked me what product I'm using because my skin is just perfect.
I don't use foundation anymore. Just buff it on my skin, apply a bit of color on my cheek and lips. wala! face looking fresh
Breakouts be gone!
I use bareMinerals make up only and recently bought this at the outlet. I had a blemish at the crease of my nose and cheek. I had been using this for about a week or so and from one evening to the next evening it was gone. I had used this twice on my face and on that spot and I didn't even have to worry about it getting bigger, it was just GONE. To spend $60 for a 3 month use, this is kind of pricey for me, but if if you can get it on special or at the outlet store I think it's a good find.
Go to bed beautiful!
It's an amazing thing! My skin appearance deffinitely became better! Plus I like to feel even more beautiful when i go to sleep! It also makes my skin very soft , and young looking! I get more complements from my man!
Helped my Rosacea
I can't live without this product. It calms my Rosacea and reduced my blemishes to one a month (my PMS present). After months of use my Rosacea looks so much better. I use it morning and night and it's a miracle. It took a long time to work but nothing else has ever worked on my Rosacea so I really would cry if this was ever discontinued! I found that when it seemed empty it was only half empty and by cutting a larger hole I got much more product out. At twice a day this has lasted months. That makes it super affordable too! Please come up with a daytime foundation version!!!
Magic in a jar
Love, love, love this powder. Put it on at night and wake up renewed.
