I recently purchased the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream and I’ve been using it pretty much every day. I figured I’ve been using it long enough to give it a fair review, so here we are.
I’ve been looking for a BB cream or something similar that I can use during the day when I’m just running errands or going to class. I hate applying a full coverage foundation when I’m only running out to class or to go grocery shopping, so I needed something to fill that gap. Don’t get me wrong, I do not wear makeup every single day. I also don’t feel like I need to wear makeup to leave my house, but I typically just like to. I just felt like I needed to clarify.
BB creams, CC creams, tinted moisturizers and the like are something I’ve had plenty of experience with. I’ve used many in the past, and I’ve loved the majority, but I wanted something different. I even have some of my old ones, but they are the wrong color for me now, as I have totally lost my tan and I have no hope of getting it back.
When I’m looking for a daily wear BB cream, I’m looking for something that’s fast, hydrating, long-wearing, and light-medium coverage. I want something that isn’t going to fade in 3 hours, something that doesn’t cling to dry patches or sink into pores, and that’s what I got.
The bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream comes in a squeeze tube. I got the second to lightest shade, despite that I should have known better. It’s the tiniest bit too dark for me, but I lighten it up with powder. There are 10 shades in the line, starting at pretty fair and going to tan. There aren’t any really dark colors which is sad. I think this is a fairly new product because I couldn’t find many reviews on it and that’s another reason I decided to pick it up.
