I told you about a month ago about the New Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Skincare line. The new bareMinerals Skincare line is powered by their proprietary RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex. This powerful ingredient, only available from bareMinerals, contains a blend of macro and micro minerals and is clinically proven to deliver faster cell turnover and noticeably smaller pores. Additionally, the RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex has three times the antioxidant capacity of blueberries, this is truly revolutionary. The new line consists of cleansers, moisturizers, treatments and kits. I was sent the bareMinerals Deep Cleansing Foam cleanser and the bareMinerals Purely Nourishing moisturizer: combination skin. I have combo skin. Its oily in most places but my T zone (forehead, nose and chin) would always be dry and flaky. I also deal with breakouts and rosacea. Lucky me right? I'm hoping that as I get more seasoned (*ahem* older) that my skin will calm down and give me a break. I have used many different face cleansers and moisturizers and have found none that I have wanted to buy more than once. I even have Dr prescriptions that couldn't help my skin. When I was sent the bareMinerals skincare products I was not counting on having any results worth sharing. I was wrong! The bareMinerals skincare products are just as great as their mineral makeup.
With the deep cleansing foam cleanser you squeeze a pearl sized amount of the cleanser to your hand. It's really thick when it first comes out the tube but once you mix water with it, it becomes a really nice rich lather. I have loved the results I have had with the deep cleansing foam cleanser. My pores aren't as noticeable and my skin was left feeling clean and smooth without the over drying feeling that I have had with other cleansers. My only complaints with the deep cleansing foam is that you have to avoid the eye area with it (trust me it burns!) so it's not all that great for eye makeup remover. The other thing (nothing major) I just think the smell of the cleanser is a little more earthy than I am used to cleansers smelling. it doesn't stink, it's just different. Other than that I love the bareMinerals deep cleansing foam. You can purchase the bareMinerals deep cleansing foam for $20 at BareEscentuals.com.
After using the deep cleansing foam in the morning and evening, I apply the bareMinerals purely nourishing moisturizer for combination skin. I mentioned earlier that I have combination skin. Oily in most spots but my forehead, nose and chin were always dry and flaky. I could take my fingernail and scrap it gently across my skin and it would flake really badly. Since using the bareMinerals purely nourishing moisturizer I now have 0 flaking with my skin. I am flake free. The bareMinerals moisturizer is strong enough to work wonders on my T zone but it doesn't make the rest of my face more oily. My face feels balanced. I just apply tiny dots all over my face and rub it in and my face feels very hydrated. You can purchase the bareMinerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer for combination skin for $28 at BareEscentuals.com.
