bareMinerals Skincare Extra Firming Neck Cream 1.7 fl. oz.
Before trying this, the only good thing I could say about my neck was that it seemed to hold up my head well enough. Honestly, in the last few years, I developed the tree trunk circles, the sagging turkey gobble, the divets where skin lays on skin, and worst, the vertical lines on the saggy part. Are you kidding? I tried four or five different creams, and not cheap ones. NOTHING. Then, I just happened to catch a presentation on this and thought, what the heck, let's try. WOW. Its been about 3 weeks of twice a day and I can not believe the results. The vertical lines are disappearing, the horizontal ones are not nearly as pronounces, even the divets aren't as bad. WOW. That's again, just 3 weeks in! I must say, the first one I received was separating so I sent it back. Others mentioned this..must have been a bad batch out there. Also, I purchased the supersized which no longer is offered. WAH. Please do the super size again. Its a great value and a great thank you to loyal customers of which I intend to be now that I see such great results.
What is happening to BM quality?
I have purchased this cream several times and really liked it. Twice it has smelled a little "off" verging on rancid, but still worked and not unusable. This last time, it is separated with orangish oil floating on it. Stirring helps and it is usable, but the separation happens over & over. I know BM was sold, but come on. Let's keep an eye on quality!
Problem With Separation Of Ingredients.
When I first received the cream, there was a small amount of orangish oil collected on the top. I stirred it with my finger and proceeded to use. I actually like the cream...but as the days went by...more and more of the oil separated out of the cream to the point of spilling out each time I opened the jar. My home is kept at 70 degrees so this product was not being subjected to heat.
I would purchase again if they could fix the stabilization issue.
The Smell is ATROCIOUS!!!
I bought this several years ago when it first came out. I'm pretty sure it was some sort of special where the firming neck cream also came with the BM moisturizer. I liked both of them a lot. I think I was on auto delivery for the special. I have been out of the neck cream for a year or more so when I saw this supersize I decided to order it. I just got it and have only used it twice, but I really think it has changed from the original product that I loved. The smell is absolutely AWFUL!!! It has a sour smell not unlike the smell of a washcloth that is badly in need of laundering. The cream itself looks as if it has separated, i.e. there is some liquid on the top of the cream itself. Today I stirred it with my finger to try to give it a more uniform consistency. That helped a little bit with the consistency, but not with the smell! I ended up spraying my neck with Philosophy Amazing Grace and that did help with the smell. Now that I have found a way to overcome the smell, I will continue to use it in hopes that it will work as well as the original. Time will tell. QVC and Bare Minerals should do a quality check on this to find out why it smells so bad and what, if anything, can be done to eliminate that odor and improve the consistency.
I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and see definite improvement in my neck and chest. I am in my late 40s and was noticing a change I did not like. I am pleased with the results.
I tried this jar for a few weeks, love it, and am now on auto-delivery because this cream works! And it may not be recommended for the eye area, but it has definitely lifted my eye lids and does not burn! I'm amazed, and am now a fan!
Love, Love, Love This Cream....
Seriously it really helps. There is no terrible smell...it's not greasy or gritty...mine is great.This cream makes my skin feel great and my neck really does looks lots better. I have been applying AM and PM. GIVE IT A CHANCE...I love it..went back and switched to auto-delivery.
Rub it in and keep rubbing, it is greasy and then it starts to crumble off like crumbs!?!?!? I can not apply make to crumbs on my neck and face, Is that feature by design? No thank you I will use the cream up on my feet?
Not what I expected from Bare Minerals
I've used a lot of their products, and had high hopes for this one. But, it only made my skin soft - and so does Hope in a Jar. No visible signs of tightening do I see here. For this reason I'm sending it back. Maybe at 68 my neck is fairly good! Sorry to return it, but I'm being honest. Just not worth the money to me.
Been using since November there's no differance in skin appearance big waste of money gave 2 stars because I like the feel of it it's soft but that's it! No firming at all to late to return so will use on body !
I have serious sagging on my neck where I had liposuction to suck out the double chin about 10 years ago. This product helps somewhat until I can get in for a lift. I have tried basic moisturizers on my neck with no improvement so I thought I'd try this. This does a lot more than just a regular cream.
Just purchased this and have been using it, expecting wonderful results. I have used bare Minerals for 15-20 years. It's the only foundation I truly love, even the liquid that's new, love it also. Used to be putting on foundation seemed like it exaggerated every wrinkle and crease, not bare Minerals. Can't go wrong, have used almost all of it. Can't go wrong with this brand.
