My favourite launch from the beginning of this year has to be the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, I finally got my mitts on it a few weeks ago and I have been loving it ever since. This gel cream is a hybrid of a BB / CC cream and tinted moisturiser rolled into one. It’s packed with plant-based antioxidants and no nasties like parabens, silicon and oils.
I popped into Debenhams for a colour match as I’m still unsure of what my ACTUAL skin tone is so I find buying online a little unpredictable. This gel cream comes in 10 shades, from Opal (for pinkish cool tones) to Sienna (a dark, neutral-toned brown). I was matched to Vanilla, one of the lighter shades, and find it to be a pretty good match.
Bare Minerals seem to have thought this product out well, as it has SPF 30 and is fragrance free, too.
For days when I can’t be bothered with make-up but still want a “no make-up makeup look” (does that even make sense?!) I always reach for this cream to give me a little boost. It has a fairly sheer coverage, so if like me you have any blemishes or red patches, I find dabbing some concealer onto them first will help. I then squeeze a 20p piece size of the gel cream onto the back of my hand and then buff it into my skin.
I love how it feels on my skin, the texture isn’t too sticky or greasy, and it has definitely made my skin feel a lot softer after wearing it. As you can see, it gives my skin that natural, dewy look, and it’s perfect for warmer weather! (I don’t look impressed with it but I am, promise. #happyhannah)
I’ve been wearing this daily since I bought it and it’s so quick and easy to just pop on and go. It retails at £26.00 for a 35ml tube. I ordered this online whilst Debenhams had 16% off all their beauty products – so definitely worth keeping an eye out for deals! I also picked up a Clinique lipstick which I can’t wait to show you guys; it’s a gorgeous “my lips but better” shade. Move over Kylie.
Do you use BBs/CCs or tinted moisturisers? Will you give this a try?
