The Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF30* is a new release from bareMinerals & is a great addition to their range. This lightweight base is perfect for a natural radiant coverage, and is described as a ‘freckle friendly multi tasker, enabling skin to appear even toned and more awake’ It really is a multi tasker, not only does it provide a gorgeous lightweight coverage but it also has a cocktail of skincare benefits too,
Olive derived squalane – nourishing, hydrating and boosts the skins ability to regenerate
Marine botanicals – help refuel thirsty skin and enhance skins appearance
Water loving humectants,Tehalsose and glycerine- which locks in moisture
Heart leaf globe daisy – an antioxidant, defends skin from from environmental aggressors
Calcium and Magnesium – help replenish the skin and promote the skins moisture balance
SPF30 PA+++ this also contains a broad spectrum SPF to protect the skin against UVA & UVB rays
I would say this gave me a a good light to medium coverage, it isn’t sheer and you could build it up if you wanted too. Even though its recommended to blend this in using your fingers I like to use a brush & think that really gave me an even coverage.
This does give a beautiful dewy finish to the skin, so I think it is the perfect Summer base as it feels incredibly lightweight on the skin & the SPF30 means your skin is protected. I have to say I have been quite impressed with the formula, coverage and the wear time of this it seems to tick all the boxes.
When I wear it my skin looks radiant and that radiance lasts all day, I get about 7 – 8 hours wear from this. My skin looks plump and more awake & I think its because it has so many great hydrating ingredients, it also means this base sits really well on the skin and doesn’t sink into fine lines & pores but helps smooth them out. Being prone to an oily t zone I do like to powder lightly in that area, to ensure it stays in place without looking greasy, and it wears all day without oxidising or going patchy. This has quickly become a favourite of mine & I have even recommended it to friends & family of all ages.
The light was a little better for the after shots but I think you get the gist, you can still my freckles and natural complexion showing through but the Complexion Rescue does give a pretty natural dewy coverage to the skin. It doesn’t look heavy, its a great daytime base and I think its going to be a popular choice for the warmer months.
So if you’re on the look out for a base that will help your skin look radiant and dewy whilst giving you an even coverage then this bareMinerals Complexion Rescue needs to be added to your shopping list.
