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?

  1. Ok! You sold me! I’m going to order this. I’m always on the quest for a better looking face!

  2. Everything I’ve heard about this new product has been positive. It looks like perfection on you. Your skin is flawless. I usually need medium to full coverage, but next time I’m at Ulta or Sephora, I must give this a try

  3. I felt like it applied better with my fingers, and then going back over with a brush helped. Love how it looks on you. You look poreless!

    • Thanks! That’s genetics more than anything else. My pores are not visible and I have no wrinkles yet. I do have slight redness but this worked to cover that along with concealer.

  4. I have to try this. I like all in ones because it cuts down my morning makeup routine :) all the different shades kind of scare me, but hopefully it will be easy to find my fit.

  5. Pretty finish!

  6. It looks amazing on you!

  7. Your skin looks so healthy and glowey, I must try this stuff!

  8. This is a great product! I received a ton of comments at work every time I wore this. Definite must have.

  9. And your skin looks fabulous!

  10. I have this on my list to pick up. I need to see shades in person, first tho. I’m not an easy shade match.

  11. Great to know this met your expectations!

  12. Oooh I need this! Great results! The coverage is a lot better than what I expected from the words “tinted gel”.

  13. I love gels and I love light coverage. Is this what we all wanted their other foundation to be? I wonder how it would last on my oily skin, though.

    It looks amazing on you !

  15. I’ve heard such great things about this product.

  16. It looks great and natural.

  17. I think you’ve just got gorgeous skin. This stuff sounds a little high maintenance to get on, but worth it…

  18. I’ll probably check this out… liquid from this brand disappears on me instantly. I wonder how a gel might work out?

  19. I’ve been hearing some great things about this product and it looks great on you girl.

  20. GIRL. You have perfect skin. It’s not just that preggo glow!! I have been kinda wanting to test this out. I don’t have perfect skin, and I need some coverage…so I was a little up in the air.

  21. Looks amazing on! It sounds a lot like Cover Fx gel formula.

  22. Looks great on you girl!
