Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue 

I’ve been hearing so many good things about the Complexion Rescue gel from  Bare Minerals. The formula acts like a hybrid tinted moisturizer/BB cream, and it is supposed to be great for problem skin. When I had the opportunity to pick up a free sample with my purchase from Sephora, I went for it!

I used shade Vanilla 02

My sample came with four single-use pods of different shades. The only shade that worked for my pale skin was “Vanilla 02.” I put this on my skin and was immediately disappointed. This did not have a great amount of coverage, so all of my blemishes were still obvious. But worst of all, this product made me look greasy. I have combination skin with a tendency to get a bit oily on my t-zone throughout the day, but I usually do well with BB Creams and tinted moisturizers because I have dry patches too, especially on my cheeks and chin.

So, should you buy this?

Pros: This product is only $29.50 which is pretty good for a foundation replacement. Also, while it made me look greasy, it might work really well for you if you have extremely dry skin. Plus, SPF 30 is a definite selling point! It also comes in 16 shades which is a great amount of range.

Cons: If you have combination skin, this might be too moisturizing for you. If you have oily skin, you should definitely avoid this product. Also, if you have any blemishes or a lot of redness or other pigmentation concerns, this seems to have much less coverage than the standard BB cream.
