It is a sad but true moment I have to face. With regret I have learned I must say goodbye to Bare Escentuals Renew and Reveal facial cleanser. They announced on their website that come 2011 it will no longer be = sadness. Bittersweet is the moment I saw that is was 30% off. The combination of the sale and the goodbye is very tempting to turn me into a hoarder to buy every single bottle left in stock.
So here goes it for the final time on this product, a brief description of why you too should buy stock in this phenomenal wonder in a bottle!!
When I was first shown the product it was pretty amazing. It does come in powder form first off. I was shown that when you mix it with water into a foamy like lather then apply it to your hand you will see very easily that after you wipe it off that the skin on that looks hand INSTANTLY looks better then the other hand. While the NON TEST hand had skin that was dull and lifeless the TEST HAND had skin that looked renewed, refreshed and altogether brighter!! It sits in my bathroom as we speak and I love it!!
I will say if you are of a dryer skin type maybe substitute it as an exfoliator and cleanser in one twice a week although it does say it is for all skin types. But give it a shot first as everyone's skin is different. It exfoliates in such an amazing way it keeps me coming back for more and more and more and....o.k. I think you get the point I am trying to convey.
It is a powder like consistency that you mix with water. It is water activate. The great thing is you have control over how much you add. This is wonderful because you can use it as a deeper exfoliant by adding less water and keeping it more of a granule type substance. Used as a cleanser alone it gently exfoliates and reveals younger looking fresher and smoother skin!
Here is the skinny on the ingredients!! It has something called Rare Active Soil Complex. It reawakens cells to boost cell turnover. The healthy antioxidants and soothing botanicals reveal healthier skin! According to Sephora, "It contains every beneficial mineral, macro and micro!" It also defends against environmental damage!

Always keep in mind skin absorbs moisture BEST when it is still wet. I personally love a misting toner or refreshing spray after the shower then I apply my moisturizer so it absorbs better!! If using a primer that will always go on after the moisturizer!! Add some makeup the Finite!!!
