I am so glad to try and share my thoughts on the NEW bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF25 with you today.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF25

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF25 is a water-based liquid foundation in a stick that combines hydrating skincare benefits and SPF with naturally radiant medium coverage. The easy-to-blend texture melts into skin for all-day wear that’s lightweight and never cakey, with a radiant finish. Use the multitasking formula as foundation, concealer, contour or for touch-ups on-the-go. It is suitable for all skin types, especially dry skin.

The formula glides on nicely on the skin and I blend it with my fingers or a buffing brush. For my combination skin, as I like glowy and dewy base, this works like a charm. It does not make my skin look oily but is hydrating enough to not emphasize the dry areas on my face. I have swatched three shades of the foundation below. I mix shades 5 and 6 for my medium skin tone with golden undertones.

The coverage is medium and the formula is comfortable on the skin. It does not breaks or cakes during the day, with or without a makeup primer. I use a setting powder on my oily areas and I am good to go. It looks very natural and radiant on the skin. The staying power is nice stays put throughout the day with some fading at the end of the day which is normal for a medium coverage foundation. It is a nice addition to my makeup bases and the stick packaging is welcome in my travel bag.

Serums, as you know, are an important part of the skincare routine, whether or not you are looking for long-term benefits or short-term results. For me, like most of the women with similar skin type, needs have always been about congestion on my combination skin, glow, radiance, plump, and healthy looking skin with less visible pores. I am almost approaching my mid-thirties and still not mentioning lines and wrinkles in my concerns I know, and I am not scared of them, they are part of the natural aging process and I have no plans or thoughts to erase them even. Coming to the bareMinerals Skinlongevity® Vital Power Infusion Serum which I have used since last few weeks in my skincare routine, sometimes alone under the moisturizer and other times layering with other serums.

bareMinerals Skinlongevity® Vital Power Infusion Serum review

The serum has been a nice addition to my skincare routine. The serum has a nice gel-like texture and easy to apply consistency. It absorbs into the skin very fast and does not leave any residue. The packaging is in a heavy glass bottle with a pump and two pumps are enough to cover the face, neck and decollete. There is a nice glow that this serum leaves on the skin. I have not notices any irritation on breakouts while using this serum. I use this after cleansing, toning and before my face oil or moisturizer when I am not using a face oil. My skin is radiant and looks healthy, it does not emphasize any pores. There are no issues with applying the makeup and the staying power of the makeup, the makeup does not roles off the skin with this serum. There is very subtle herbal kind of fragrance in it that fades very quickly.
