Simply the Best can be yours on Friday, August 16

Posted by Jessica Foust 1376426809.077
Happy summer! I’m so excited to be back on QVC this Friday, August 16. We haven’t had bareMinerals shows since May, and I know some of you have been anxiously awaiting new products, tips, and tricks. Well, if you want new, you're in luck! There are SO many new things to share with you. I can’t wait!
The mega-star on Friday is our Today’s Special Value®, bareMinerals Simply the Best Deluxe Skincare Collection. We super-sized three of our best-selling skin-care products to give you brighter, fresher, younger-looking skin. There are so many reasons that I am thrilled this is our TSV. First, these truly are three of my favorite in our skin-care line, I use them every single day. Second, these three products can be incorporated into any skin routineso they are perfect if you are new to bareMinerals skin care. Third, we know these truly are the best of the best products, because YOU told us they are…between the amazing customer reviews and two-time Customer Choice Award winner in 2011 and 2012 (thank you!), this truly is a must-have collection.
Here’s why I love these three so much:
Purifying Facial Cleanser: This cleanser rocks. Period. Every morning and night, I reach for this to cleanse my skin, remove my makeup, and dissolve impurities. It provides a cleansing experience: it’s soft and gentle, with zero irritation, and afterwards your skin feels soft and hydrated, never dry or tight. With this cleanser, you’re getting clean skin, plus so much more. This will become your skin’s new best friend, I guarantee. (Oh…and men love this cleanser too!)
Extra Firming Neck Cream: A superstar from Day One. Many of us spend so much time taking care of our faces, but forget to give our necks a little love. The skin on the neck is different and can show signs of aging just as much as our faces and our hands. This neck cream will do wonders to your neck and décolleté- use it morning and night. You will have the gorgeous hydrated, luminous look and feel leaving a firmer, smoother, more hydrated, younger-looking neck.
Renew & Hydrate Eye Cream: I fell in love with this rich, glossy soufflé-like eye cream from the first moment I tried it. It floods my eye area with hydration, while still being lightweight, airy, and quick-absorbing. I feel it hydrating, and I live for the luminous glow it leaves around my eye area. My tip? Try applying this as a midday pick-me-up right over your makeup. It feels refreshing, awakens the eye area, and leaves a soft radiance to the skin.

 TSV items

If you’ve tried bareMinerals before, I’d love to hear from you below. Tell me why you love it and how its changed your skin.
So what are some of my other picks for this Friday?
bareMinerals READY 4.0 The Bronze Age. This is bronze done right. I have been wearing this palette since the day I got my hands on it. There is nothing sexier than a bronze smokey eye.
The It List 10-piece Collection. Ready Warmth All-Over Face color. Do I need to say anything more?
bareMinerals READY Touch-Up Veil. This must-have now comes in five different shades to give you a hint of tone while diffusing the look of imperfections, reducing shine, and giving that soft-focus finish. A handbag essential!
Perfect Neutrals Marvelous Moxie Lip Duo. No more searching for the perfect nude lip. It’s here. This lipstick and lipgloss duo gives you the ultimate nude. The lipstick has a rosy undertone so it will never look dull or wash you out.
There you have it: my sneak peek. I hope you’ll join me on Friday for these goodies and so much more!
Be sure to share your thoughts, comments and questions on my Facebook page.
And check me out on Instagram, I’ve been posting some fun photos.
See you soon,

Hi Jessica,

Yes, I am super excited for the show on Friday August 16. I can't wait to get the TSV. I ran out of the Firming Neck Cream last week (which is way bad) and had planned to pick up more at a BE boutique. For once my procrastination paid off. All I can say is WOW! The TSV is way cool. I have been using BE products for the past 10 years and my face looks great but my neck was starting to see a bit of age and needed help. I won't reveal exactly how old I am but fabulous and forty is in the ball park. When I first bought the Firming Neck Cream, I was completely sure that is was not working. I even thought of returning it but I gave it a second try. I am so glad I did. I soon found out that it really does need to be applied twice a day as the directions state. I saw results in just a few days after applying it twice a day. I should also mention that the Purifying Facial Cleanser and Renew / Hydrate Eye Cream is always a hit. I love the fact that the cleanser is not irritating since I wear contacts and have zero irritation when I use it. All three products are at the top of my list for daily use. Thank you for all the wonderful Bare Minerals products.

Would love if you would post the official order of the use of skin care items. How long should you wait between application of each product. Love every thing just never sure I am doing it correctly. I have every product in the line.

These are the skin care products I use every day too. Can't wait to see the value - size and price.

I've been using bareMinerals for a few years now. I was using it exclusively, but lately I've been adding in some serums and creams and a face protector/primer SPF 40 from other brands as well. I struck a combination that looks great and covers all my bases. I think all of the above are great products. I use the cleanser religiously every day--it really removes all makeup and dirt and dead skin cells without stripping anything from my healthy skin. I never break out anymore, my skin has become so normalized, and at almost 41 I have no wrinkles or sagging at all. I think peptides and antioxidants and moisture play a big part in keeping skin looking its best, and bareMinerals has all of that. Break a leg, Jessica!

I have used BE products for 8 years or more and love everything about them. However as I have made it to 60 my skin is so dry that I'm concerned I need more moisture than I'm getting. Haven't tried the wrinkle serum yet and plan to order it Friday. Will this help my drying, aging skin so I can continue to use my favorite BE products? Looking forward to watching all the BE shows Friday. i always learn something new!

Hi Jessica,

I love the precision brush with my Ready Foundation but I see you are now offering the Ready with the regular face brush. I was just wondering why???


jeteddy1376605477.6371 PostsRegistered 8/15/2013
Hi Jessica. I have been using Purifying Facial Cleanser for several months now and really excited about seeing this product on the show. I do have a question about the Renew and Hydrate Eye Cream. My eyes have gotten quite puffy with bags under them. Will this cream help reduce this? Thanks for taking the time and look forward to your answer.

Hi Jessica! As a huge fan of bare minerals I'm really looking forward to tomorrow! I have one question for you, do you know if and when the antioxidant primer will be available again? It's my absolute favorite primer and I see it's no longer available on qvc or anywhere else. Please help! I don't want to run out its fabulous love the pretty tint it gives my skin before i apply my BE foundation. Hoping it will be available in a deluxe size soon! Thanks for listening.

Hi Jessica, several months ago I purchased bare minerals body cream and just loved it.It is no longer available,and was wondering if it would come back again in the future? Thanx,Sandra

The last time you were here I posted the following question but it was not answered so I thought I would re-ask at the head of the line:

Between this weeks bM shows and the ones from the last trip I have seen at least 6 and possibly more products to highlight, luminize, illuminate and brighten our eyes and face.

How do you chose between Luminizer (at least 2 colors), Illuminating Touch up Veil, Stroke of Light and Well Rested and I think there was a "highlightening" product at the last visit that is out of stock. What is the difference between all these products besides form - ready, tube, loose minerals.....

I understand the purpose and use of these products but I can't tell which one I need or the reason there are so many. The only reason I can think of is to get us to pay more money on all these different products between the sale and the return.

Can anyone enlighten Me?


I doubt I am the only one confused.

I am a cadaverously fair woman, 56 with red hair, disabled hands so I have limited ability to apply makeup and limited income, which luminizer-type item would be the best option for me. I don't wear a lot of makeup (though I have almost every loose color eye shadow, glimpse and glimmer plus many liners you made) anymore but know these products can make a big difference in a short time.

I don't and won't use Facebook and I am too verbose to use twitter. Would you please provide those of us anti-social media folks a way to ask you questions.

I can't find where the ingredients are listed. Can you please address whether or not they contain parabens, sulphates, propylene glycol, mineral oil and/ any other petrochemicals or other known carcinogens or hormone disruptors? I use Bare Minerals cosmetics based on them NOT containing unhealthy ingredients. Want to confirm skin care line adheres to same standards. Thank you.

I watched the whole presentation, but nobody ever talked about the scent. What do these products smell like?

arleeny1376662172.132 PostsRegistered 1/25/2013

I was just wondering...I noticed this neck cream in TSV does not say luminous, so am I correct to assume that it is different than the single one that QVC sells?. I actually don't want it to be shiny..would rather it just disappear into the skin.

Chicago Gi­rl1376662423.81714 PostsRegistered 5/21/2011

I am seriously considering the TSV because I adore the neck cream. I do wonder the same as what arleeny asked....is it the same luminous cream I know and love.

Also....I LOVE the Wrinkle Concentrate but neither the boutique nor my Salon that carries ALL the other products can get it anymore. You aren't discontinuing it, are you?

Bookbabe1376666812.9471 PostsRegistered 2/26/2007

Hi Jessica,

Some of my Ready veil and Skinny Dip do not seem to come off on the brush. I did take off the clear liner but my brushes do not seem like they are picking up any product.

Please can you address this?

Hi Jessica,

Can you use the neck cream on your face?

The original loose minerals have no scent. The Round the clock eyeliners, used to get Alice Cooper eyes even if that was not what you intended have no discernible scent to me nor do the one ready eyeshadow product I have. Have not used the other stuff. Hope this helps

Hi Jessica,

I love these products and am ordering them, however, I already have an AD order with a couple of the regular size. My other AD order will run out after a few more deliveries. My question is, what is the shelf life of these products. I may be accumulating a stock pile that I will most certainly use, but don't want to waste the money if these will un-emulsify or go bad in some way. I can place them in the fridge if that would help. I appreciate the opportunity to ask you a question. Love your programs.

I purchased the TSV and am wondering, my eyelids sometimes appear dry and flaky; is it ok to apply the eye cream to my lids as well as around the eye area? Thank you
