When I saw that Bare Minerals were releasing the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick, there were a couple of main reasons that I really wanted to try it out. Firstly, because I LOVE the regular Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue and secondly because it has SPF25. I have recently been trying to find makeup products with SPF in, and it surprised me how hard it was.
The Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick is a water-based liquid foundation in a stick and it is available in 20 shades. I went to a Bare Minerals counter so that I could get matched up and they recommended shade 02 Vanilla for my fair to light skin. You do only get 10g of the foundation, so it isn't the best value for money, but if a product works, then you don't always mind spending the cash.
The Foundation comes in a sleek matte gold tube and of course the stick then twists up. Once you apply it onto the skin it does feel slightly cooling on the skin due to the enhanced mineral water. Bare Minerals promote this as having a medium, buildable coverage, but I personally found it to be a more natural light coverage and whilst it did nothing for my pores without a primer, I did like the natural effect for Summer days when I don't want a lot of makeup on and of course it has the bonus of SPF25.
One of the main reasons I love Bare Minerals makeup is due to the fact they are often very skincare based, so you are looking after the skin at the same time and this is a very hydrating foundation. It contains Volcanic Mineral Seawater, Red Algae which has been shown to have better hydrating properties than Hyaluronic Acid, Squalene to nourish the skin, Youth Boost Peptide to firm the skin, and Pollution Protection Complex to defend against environmental aggressors, heavy metals and blue light. So pretty much a great cocktail of skin boosters.
All in all this is a great Summer foundation stick, to keep the skin healthy and to give a pretty, natural glow and finish to the skin. As I mentioned, I don't personally find the coverage super amazing, but the skincare and sun protection benefits outweigh that for me. The Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick costs £29.00 and you can find it online at Bare Minerals here.
All the Loves,
