Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Review


When the new Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream* (wow, what a mouthful) landed at my door, I was SO excited to try it! I'm a big fan of base products and am constantly on the hunt for 'the one' so I wanted to see how this would compare with other products in my collection. Now as you can probably tell by the name, this isn't a foundation but instead a tinted gel cream so its a lot lighter than a classic foundation and the coverage is lighter than the full coverage liquid foundations I'm used to. Bare Minerals class is as a BB, CC and tinted moisturiser all rolled into one. I initially thought this would be a problem for me as I typically like to use full coverage products to get a flawless finish but this product has proven me wrong.


What I love about this cream is that it gives the skin such a healthy dewy finish. The problem I find with some of my full coverage foundations is that they can leave my skin looking too matte and whilst that's all well and good when I'm going somewhere special or on a night out when I need my makeup to last, it isn't always great for day to day wear when I want something more natural looking. That's where the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue comes in as it has just the right amount of coverage to cover any redness on my skin without looking like I'm wearing any makeup. Instead it gives me a more radiant, even and dewy version of my own skin. I do find it needs a dab of powder on top to stop me looking on the sweaty side of dewy but other than that, a dab of concealer under the eyes is all I need for a quick and fresh base! 
 

As well as being a great base product, it also doubles up as skincare. It contains marine botanicals to boost hydration, electrolytes to energise the skin and an antioxidant to help protect against environmental stressors. As if that wasn't enough it's been formulated without any nasties and it also contains SPF 30. I can definitely feel this doing my skin some good when I wear it - it feels silky smooth and gives me a boost of hydration as soon as I've applied it. I think its going to be an essential for me on my holiday to Greece at the end of the month as it will let my natural holiday glow shine through as well as protecting my skin from the sun. What a gem!
 

I believe there's ten shades available so there should be one to suit everyone! I have 'Buttercream' which is fairly yellow toned and it's a great match for my skin. You can buy it here for £26.00!

Does this sound like something you'd like to try?

  1. I have heard so many good things about this product and love the idea of a gel cream. I think I might just have to go to a Bare Minerals counter and purchase ethos product.

  2. I've been wanting to get this for a while now! The Bare Minerals powder foundation's also amazing, not as hyped up but very worth it! When I wear it people don't notice I have makeup on, they just compliment me on my skin! xxx

  28. This looks amazing! Definitely going to have to be the next thing I try out. Do you suggest as using it as simply a base or can it be a foundation for a light day look and you suggest something different for more coverage?

  29. This looks like it's such a gorgeous product! However I have really oily skin and often find that these kind of products make my skin too shiny/greasy, would you recommend it despite this? x

  33. I own the complexion rescue in 'Spice' and got it from Feel Unique when they had 35% off. It's amazing and I highly recommend it if you're going on holiday! You should try a sample size before committing though as I felt I found the right shade for me that way, and you can also see if it works for you :)
