Beauty ¦ Bare minerals Complexion rescue

You know when you make a complete impulse purchase because you see one of your favourite youtubers use a product even though it's not a product you would ever pick up yourself? This was one of those products, and it turns out I really love it. I've always gone for very heavy high coverage as I have a lot of acne scaring and redness in my skin however I was sick of wearing a full coverage foundation all the time and after seeing a couple of people use this I decided to bite the bullet and give it a go.
The texture of this product is really strange it lies somewhere between a mouse and a gel which means it just sinks into the skin leaving a really lovely even layer of coverage on the skin. This is definitely a light coverage however it does a really good job of covering all my redness and I only need a little extra concealer under my eyes and on my scaring. In terms of application it suggests on the packaging that hands should be used to apply however after trying it out that way I found that most of it sunk into my fingers instead of into my face. I also gave a brush a go and found it needed a little more work than my usual foundations as I found the brush left marks. I finally decided to try it with my beauty blender and I absolutely loved how it left it looking and how quick it was to apply. I thought that as it is quite low coverage I would end up using loads of product each time however I've found that I have to use about half of what I would usually use for my whole face.
Finish wise this stuff is incredibly dewy, for my super dry skin it's perfect however I think even the slightest of oily skins may find this looks really greasy really quickly on them. I also really love the packaging for this the squeezy tube is perfect for getting just enough product out and I've found it just makes my whole foundation application a much cleaner process.
I think if you are someone with dry skin this will be perfect for you as it feels so lovely on the skin however I would definitely suggest passing if you have oily skin. I think after trying this I may just have to try some more lighter coverage options, I've definitely got my eye on the Nars tinted moisturizer next.

  1. I've tried this also and think it would be great for summer as it is just so dewy. I don't think I'll buy the full size though, as I like a little more coverage!
