I typically do a lot of research before I purchase a product, especially if it’s on the expensive side. I read a few reviews of bareMinerals Complexion Rescue but still wasn’t convinced it was worth buying. I wore bareMinerals foundation for years but it stopped working for me: as I get older, I crave better coverage, and their foundation doesn’t give me what I need. I think my disappointment with the foundation caused me to be hesitant about the Complexion Rescue.
However, I went to Ulta last week to blow off some steam and the Benefit representative talked me into buying the bareMinerals product. We discussed makeup for 15 minutes and she told me this was her current go-to… and her skin was flawless.
(I’m not a selfie expert, so go easy on me. We had gray skies when these pictures were taken and I decided to just use my iPhone instead of my camera. Also, my hair is still damp; I promise it’s not dead on the ends).
Anyway, the Benefit sales representative was right: this stuff is the bomb. In the first picture, the only thing I’m wearing on my face (aside from eye makeup, obviously) is a little concealer on my chin to hide a breakout that popped up over the weekend. In the second picture, I added Complexion Rescue and a little blush. That’s it. I usually wear foundation over it but it’s not necessary: you can layer it for additional coverage.
What to expect:
Apply Complexion Rescue with your fingers (I didn’t think the brush was necessary, but here it is). It looks like a BB or CC Cream but feels like a gel… it even cools your skin. I am pleasantly surprised by how it brightened and evened-out my dull complexion. It provides a pop of moisture and leaves your skin with a dewy finish. LOVE. If you’re struggling with dry, dull skin, give this a try!
Is it worth the price?
Yes! I have no issue spending more for good quality. It’s especially worth it if you can get by without foundation or you struggle with chronically dry skin.
I’m sorry for doubting you, bareMinerals. I love you forever.
