bareMinerals RareMinerals Blemish Therapy Review

bareMinerals RareMinerals Blemish Therapy

I want to do a quick bareMinerals RareMinerals Blemish Therapy review today since it is a product I have used many times in the past and have had great experiences with. While bareMinerals Blemish Therapy is not makeup for acne, it provides a little bit of coverage while helping to heal blemishes, so I have even used it at night to tone down some redness and help heal a blemish. This is a product that does not contain the usual salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide of other acne treatments. Instead, it uses Bare Escentuals’ RareMinerals Complex which contains natural sulfur, a mineral that is both soothing and has some antibacterial properties.

bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil Review

Description:

This is Bare Escentuals’ new version of Mineral Veil, now with SPF 25.  It has all the qualities of the original mineral veil, but with sun protection.  As with the original version, the SPF 25 Mineral Veil is designed to give a finishing touch to makeup by softening lines, minimizing pores, eliminating shine, and keeping makeup fresh all day.  The SPF version comes in a sheer powder and a tinted version.  The non-SPF version also comes in a hydrating and an illuminating version.

Summary of Reviews:

The new bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil is by far my favorite product in Bare Escentuals bareMineral line.  I have used it for years and I don’t just reserve it for use with the bareMinerals foundation.  It works well over any foundation or even just over concealer.

Review of bareMinerals Matte Foundation

bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation Fair

Description:

This is Bare Escentuals’ new matte formula of its original bareMinerals foundation. It is supposed to absorb excess oil without drying the skin. It is almost meant to improve the appearance of the skin, minimizing pores and promoting cell turnover with their Rare Minerals Active Soil Complex. The container has been redesigned with a ‘click, lock, go’ cap so that there are no spills. This powder foundation also has an SPF 15 with no chemicals or preservatives. You can see a full list of ingredients on the product page, using the link provided below.

bareMinerals Multi-Tasking Face Concealer Review

Bare Escentuals Multi-Tasking concealer

Description:

This is a mineral-based powder concealer with SPF 20 that can be used for many purposes, including concealing acne and other skin imperfections.  Bare Escentuals also describes it as a soft eyeshadow base and good for covering dark circles under eyes.  It is oil-free, as well as free of other chemicals and ingredients that typically cause sensitivity reactions.

Summary of Reviews:

Bare Escentuals advertises its makeup as “so pure you can sleep in it”.  While any acne expert will tell you that sleeping in your makeup is a VERY bad idea, Bare Escentuals’ line of mineral makeup is one of the most popular ones around for people with acne.  It gets consistently high ratings and most users say that it does not aggravate their acne at all.  In fact, most of the hundreds of reviews we looked at raved about this product.  The only real complaint is about the color choice.  The lightest color is still a little too dark for those with very fair skin.
