Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@tsavorite  oh yeah I do appreciate having the opportunity to give this a try! Don't get me wrong. I just can't say something is the best or awesome when those aren't my true thoughts on the product. I have to be honest about how I feel about it.

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@veronika23 I do find that if you use it like a primer instead of a moisturizer, it has a nice "tack" and helps foundation stick. I've put it ontop of my Algenist Collagen in the morning a few times and its been quite nice and I've had really good foundation days. 

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

Ohhh good to know! Thanks @GG84! Smiley Happy

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@veronika23 I was going to leave a review of this as well, but you pretty much said exactly what I was going to. I agree with you on all counts. It’s nice, but just not quite enough. It might be a better fit in the summer, though 

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@jozkidOops sorry! Smiley Sad  yeah might be a better fit for summer for sure!

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

No apologies @veronika23 .... great minds think alike! 😆

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

Hahahaha yes they do @jozkid! Smiley Very Happy

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@veronika23 Great review/feedback!  I get frustrated when good products come in jars, too!  I just don't get it sometimes!

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

Thanks @greeneyedgirl107! I don't mind it but this one should definitely be in another type of packaging.

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

See what I'm talking about ( in my post below )? My FAB BarriAIR face cream is disappearing on me. Turning into what I call a foam dust. Anyone else?

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

Yes! @lyravega To my surprise that’s what I got too. What the heck is up with that??? 

I was wondering if that was a product reaction to skin oils from my fingers and that I should try using a spatula to get it out? Or is it the exposure to air thrn they should have packaging like the Dunk Elephant polypeptide cream.

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@PaletteAddict99 Yeah, it was quite a surprise, right? Never seen anything like it. As I said in my previous post, I believe it's "just" a delicate nature of the texture of the cream. Every time you expose it to air, which you have to do when you use it, it will start to disintegrate. It should definitely be in some kind of airtight packaging, not in an open jar like this. 

 

 

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@lyravega,

On the other hand, it's kind of interesting, because it's so unusual.

I open the jar and wonder what it's going to look like today.  Like a living thing.

Mine is still very moist to the touch.  Sometimes it shrinks. Or the foam bubbles have popped?

Inside the top of the box it says, "Like air, this cream is always on the move!  The foam grows and shrinks, but its love for your skin will remain unchanged."

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@tsavorite Haha, I love you being so positive about it! Smiley Tongue

 

It is moist even when just a foam dust... But it's disappearing. Every time I open it, there is less and less of it. I am almost half way through it, and I just used it a few times. I'd be pretty bleeped off if I paid for it. 

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@lyravega,

I understand what you are saying!  I actually did buy the jar that I am using, and received the Gratis afterwards.  I still think it's a playful jelly texture, but if it disappears into thin air, that's not good.  

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

Same here, @lyravega. It’s kept me from doing more thorough testing: I don’t want to speed up the disappearing act. Since it’s kind of a whipped mousse texture, maybe this stuff should’ve come in a mousse spray/pump dispenser. FAB could’ve at least put some kind of snap-shut seal between the product and jar lid. 

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@WinglessOne @itsfi I wanted to leave it for the summer, as it is not enough for my skin right now no matter what I do, what I mix or layer it with ( but there are still some combos/products I need to try it with )... But now I wonder if I do that... Will there be anything left in there by the summer? Smiley Surprised 

 

I agree, they should have put it in a way better packaging. Airtight something. Anything. Just not a jar like this. 

 

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@lyravega @WinglessOne that’s what I wanted to do too, set it aside for spring/summer and try it again to see if it would be a better fit for my skin but I didn’t know if there’d be any product left so I ended up just using it. I agree that airtight packaging would be a better fit for this product.

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@lyravega, it happens to my jar too. I’m almost done with the moisturizer and everytime I open it, I’m greeted by a layer of foam dust - that’s a great description for it.

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@lyravega Yes! Mine is doing that also! It's the air making contact with it. Very poor package design but I get the visual they were going for. 

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@GG84 Very poor packaging for this kind of product, indeed! Yeah, I know, the texture is way too delicate to be exposed to air like that. I just wanted to make sure it's not just me.
