Can it be? A product that actually can back up it’s claims! YAAAAAS honey! bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream has quickly become a MUST have in my daily beauty routine. This extremely long wearing skin care meets foundation hybrid is the bee’s knees! bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream provides sheer to light/medium coverage depending on the skin issues you’re dealing with. I find I get the perfect amount of overall coverage for daily wear with one application. I haven’t tried to build up this product because if I want to amp up my look I’ll use concealer on the areas that are a problem for me to avoid possible caking associated with “building” foundation type products. bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream wears flawlessly for me all day without settling into fine lines, clinging to dry patches, fading or rubbing off. I almost want to say my skin looks better the longer I am wearing it which sounds insane. It’s lightweight and breathable. Also, the SPF built into the formula doesn’t throw white cast in photos. A HUGE bonus for moi!
The packaging claims that after a continuous seven days of wear you’ll see some improvements in your skin’s hydration and I have to say that for me this is completely true. During my testing phase (as a foundation alternative) I noticed my skin was nicely hydrated even during the cold snap we have experienced here in Chicago. It played well with my existing skin care routine which is a plus for me. And when I discontinued daily use as a foundation to see if I was just nuts, I did notice my skin was drier and was definitely on the duller side.
bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream can be tricky to work with. It is a gel based product and it dries down very quickly. The package directions state to apply with your fingers (even though a new brush was released and marketed with this) and I would say that applying with a brush for a formula of this type is better. I even avoid placing it on my hand to apply from, I use a Make Up For Ever metal mixing tray to apply from. I do my face in areas: nose, forehead, chin, left cheek and right cheek using a flat kabuki face brush. That method worked best for me with bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream.
Skin care and coverage in one? Wha what! bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream has become a fixture in my daily beauty routine. I can’t wait to see how this performs in the warmer months. Have you tried bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream yet?
