The HuffPost Style editors recently tried Glossier, a really cool new skincare line that has made us think twice about wearing makeup. After using the deep pore cleansing mask and hydrating moisturizer, all we needed was mascara, brow filler and lipstick.
My lifeline came via BareMinerals Complexion Rescue.
What Is It?
This gel-cream product has the lightweight consistency of a tinted moisturizer and the skin-perfecting benefits of a BB or CC cream. Free of parabens, fragrance and oil, BareMinerals Complexion Rescue is formulated with hydrating ingredients like calcium and gylcerin, SPF 30 and heart-leaved globe daisy (fancy, huh?) for an additional barrier against toxins and pollutants.
It is available in an impressive 10 shades in cool to warm tones, making it super easy to find your perfect match without having to create a special blend. As a woman with a deeper skin tone, I truly appreciate the range.
How I Used It
In order to achieve sheer coverage, I buffed a quarter-sized amount of Complexion Rescue onto my face with a flat top foundation brush in swift, circular motions. I immediately noticed that my skin appeared less dull and the annoying acne scars along my jawline evened out. The beauty marks I inherited from my grandmother could still be seen.
While running around backstage at New York Fashion Week, I was shocked at how well the gel-cream held up throughout the day. My skin possessed a dewy and not greasy glow, and it garnered compliments from my fellow beauty editors.
I credited my seemingly flawless look to good skincare and drinking lots of water, but this product really was my little secret.
Rating: 5 out of 5. BareMinerals Complexion Rescue has changed the tinted moisturizer game forever.
