Hey everyone today is the day I finally get to share with you my views on the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue, £26.00. Lots of you have been asking for a review and it must be about three or four weeks since I brought it now. I have been using it most days and I am so pleased with it, I am happy to share it with you.
The BareMinerals Complexion Rescue is a tinted hydrating gel cream. To be honest when I first came across this, the hydration part sold it to me straight away, though I was a little more curious about it being a gel cream, as I didn't know what to expect with the texture. The texture is actually really nice it glides onto the skin really evenly and easily and I felt instant hydration. I find it works best applying it with a buffing brush and really work it into the skin, it looks so beautiful, as if you have naturally smooth glowing skin.
This is a sheer to medium coverage which I really like as you can build up some extra coverage if you need it in certain areas or even for a more special occasion where you don't want really heavy makeup you can get away with using this for your base. I love the smooth dewy finish this gives to the skin, it does not make you look oily at all. It gives the appearance of very healthy glowing skin which for me having very dry skin could not be more perfect.
As this does have a dewy finish, I was very surprised at the staying power of this product, It lasts all day and I personally don't always set it either. Especially for hot summer days which is when I am wearing it the most, it does not move around at all and or begin to look sticky of feel uncomfortable in anyway. My skin feels Hydrated and very moiturised all day long, and my makeup looks exactly the same last thing at night as when I put it on in the morning with no touching up! You can see my every day makeup post where I use it here!
As this a tinted moisturiser it also has a lot of skincare benefits. First off what it does not contain is any Oil, Parabens, Silicone, or Fragrance. It does conctain an SPF of 30 which is great for summer however it is a non-chemical mineral based SPF. It has ingredients which will help replenish thirsty skin and protect it against environmental stressors. With continual use you should start to feel the benefits of more hydrated skin.
For me on my search for the perfect tinted moisturiser for this summer, this is the one for me me. I think this will also work really well for winter time too though as it is so hydrating. As I have very dry skin I can only share my views for that type, so I don't know how with works with more oily skin, so please share your experiences with this too.
