My take on the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream-
The cream is packaged in a sturdy, sleek, champagne gold colored tube with a nozzle mouth opening & a black screw-on cap. It is both easy to use & travel with 🙂
The texture is light, lovely & a gel-cream hybrid which is very easy to spread & blend into skin, getting absorbed within seconds 🙂 Skin immediately drinks it up & looks lit up from within but with a very natural radiant glow, just like they claim 🙂 For a new mom what more can I want but well-rested, glowing skin? I did not expect the amazing radiant glow it imparts <3
The lightweight moisturizer hydrates my skin well through the day but never makes my T-Zone oilier or leave behind any greasy/tacky feeling 🙂 For very dry skins, another moisturizer might be necessary though.
The coverage is sheer-medium of course, as with any tinted moisturizer but it does even out your skin tone & casts a veil over the little spots & imperfections making them far less noticeable ^_^ It is the perfect everyday fix for me!
The tinted moisturizer comes with a hefty SPF of 30 & I don’t have to layer it up with another sunscreen unless it’s proper summer 🙂
It is soothing & lovely on my very sensitive skin as well & has never broken me out.
Pros of the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream:
1> Very convenient packaging- sleek tube with nozzle mouth, perfect for use & travel.
2> Dreamy, fluid, lightweight texture, blends in moments.
3> Instantly brightens up skin & covers up minor imperfections & uneven tone.
4> Skin looks bare & naturally radiant.
5> Hydrates skin but does not leave behind any greasy/tacky feeling.
6> Comes with SPF 30.
7> Does not aggravate my sensitive skin.
8> Does not leave any whitish cast.
9> Great as a makeup primer as well 🙂
Cons of the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream:
