NEW bareMinerals Skincare Review & Giveaway!

bareMinerals Skincare

Remember  a few weeks ago when I told you about the launch of Bare Escentuals NEW bareMinerals Skincare line?  If you missed the post it highlights the groundbreaking eight-piece skincare line which is powered by a patent-pending 100% pure RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex.  I was so excited to hear about the new skincare products , because I’m a huge fan of the bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation and the line is formulated to perform expertly with the foundation to give you a younger-looking complexion.

Now that I’m 40 years old I have noticed a difference in the texture plus appearance of my skin and I’m looking to turn back the clock or at least smooth out the fine lines around my eyes.  Some people say age is just a number, but for me it was like turning on a wrinkle switch and I’m seeking out  products to help turn it off!  I was ecstatic to be given the opportunity to try the bareMinerals Deep Cleansing Foam and Purely Nourishing Moisturizer.  I’ve been using the two products for the past few days in the morning plus evening!

bareMinerals Deep Cleansing Foam

bareMinerals Skincare Deep Cleansing Foam

  • What It Is: This, luxuriously rich cleanser deep cleans pores and lifts away impurities. Powered by our RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex, this non-drying formula bursts into a rich lather when activated with water to clean and instantly refresh skin for a soft, smooth complexion. Sulfate free.
  • Directions: Work a small pearl-sized amount into a rich foam with lukewarm water. Massage onto skin in small circular motions and rinse thoroughly. Use morning and night. Avoid eye area.
  • Price: $20, 119g/4.2 Oz. Click here to buy.

Real Results

    Here’s what women have said*: 

  • 84% saw an overall improvement in the skin’s appearance.
  • 90% felt their skin was softer and smoother.
  • 72% felt their pores looked smaller and more refined.

My Experience!

The first time I used this product I was amazed how such a small dab was able to produce enough foam to wash my entire face!  Less is more when it comes to this product and a little bit goes a LONG way. If you use it as directed the tube should last you approximately three months.

The Deep Cleansing Foam  was able to entirely remove the makeup I had on my face and leave my skin feeling refreshed without that yucky over tight feeling you sometimes experience with cleansers.  It could be my imagination, but I have already noticed a difference in my skin and it looks more healthy and even!  After a few days the enlarged pores around my nose seem to appear smaller and less noticeable too.  On that fact alone…I love this product and extremely excited to try the rest of the line!

You can include me into the “real results”  for seeing an overall improvement in my skin’s appearance, it feeling softer plus smoother, and for my pores looking more refined! AND I’ve only been using it for less than a week!

bareMinerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer

Light and Non Greasy!

I have a problem with moisturizers in that I don’t like to use them, because they tend to make my skin feel heavy as the day goes on.  However, this was not my experience with the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer.  I used it right after the cleanser and it went on light without any greasy or sticky feeling.  The great thing I found with this moisturizer is how it even works on my combination skin.  My t-zone is usually more oily and the moisturizer seemed to balance out my whole face leaving it looking  radiant.

I’m always worried about getting pimples from using moisturizer on my face daily, but so far I have not had any while using the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer!  It also works as an excellent base for my mineral foundation without causing any caking.

I’m completely hooked on both these products and can’t wait to try the rest of the new skincare line!

*note- I was not compensated or forced to give a favorable opinion about these products.  This is my honest experience using the bareMinerals Deep Cleansing Foam and Purely Nourishing Moisturizer.  However, everyone’s skin reacts in a different manner, so I can’t promise you the same results I experienced.
