This lightweight gel-lotion face primer is soothing and clinically shown to maintain skin’s essential moisture over time. Green mineral pigments help to neutralize the look of redness. Chamomile and arnica calm and nourish the skin while a blemish-busting mineral blend of zinc, sulfur, and Kaolin clay work together to mattify skin and purify pores, and Phytosphingosine optimizes skin’s defenses against bacteria.
This mattifying primer also preps skin for effective acne makeup coverage, creating a smooth canvas. This product is green yet blends into the skin perfectly, and doesn’t leave behind a weird cast of color, like many other color correcting products. Even better, it truly makes your skin matte, and doesn’t allow your foundation to break up throughout the day. I have oily skin and felt that this primer kept my oils under control throughout the entire day (and kept my skin looking fabulous!) It also did not irritate my skin or cause me to break out. I would highly recommend this product. I’m excited to continue to use it, but disappointed that I just discovered it towards the end of the summer season! I’ll definitely be keeping it in my rotation, especially since I do suffer from blemish prone skin.
This full coverage loose powder foundation is formulated with 0.5% salicylic acid to quickly resolve acne breakouts, plus oat protein to soothe and nourish skin. The mineral pigments in this makeup provide breathable, buildable full coverage, with a natural-matte finish that lasts all day. Unlike many other treatments that dry the skin, this foundation contains a Moisture Mineral Complex to keep skin hydrated, while the blend of zinc, sulfur, and Kaolin clay work together to mattify skin and purify pores. This powder foundation is clinically shown to clear acne in as little as 3 weeks, and prevent future breakouts, all while maintaining skin’s essential moisture. (Shades in the swatches below are Neutral Deep and Deepest Deep.)
This dual fiber foundation brush was expertly engineered for Bare Minerals’ award-winning Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer. It is ultra soft and made from synthetic fibers that quickly provide both control and diffusion of foundation. The amazingly effective dome-shamed design seamlessly blends creamy foundations as well as powders for a flawless, airbrushed finish.
It is handcrafted for fast foundation application. The brush has shorter brown fibers that easily pick up product while the longer ivory fibers create a diffused effect as you sweep the foundation onto your face. I truly love the look and feel of this brush. It feels very high end, has quite a bit of weight to it, and is built to last. The brushes do not shed when you wash it (which is definitely a bonus). It applies foundation quickly, easily, and effortlessly, without leaving behind streaks.
