  • "i love this complexion cream so much. when i brought it i initially thought it would be a bb cream and wouldn't have much coverage, which is what i was after. but for £28 i thought it was worth a try, as i was on accutane (an acne medication) at the time and needed something that would let my skin breath yet still even out my skin tone; and this did exactly that. it lasted the full day and i still had a natural glow by the time i had finished work 8 hours later. the only thing i can fault is the shade range which i don't feel is wide enough." in 147 reviews
  • "i love natural ingredients in skin care, so the mineral base & botanicals are a huge plus for me. the product does even out the pink in my face and finding a good match for my skin tone was easy. it wouldn't cover heavy acne marks or mask undereye circles single handedly though (it does say sheer coverage, so that's fair). the dewy finish is as advertised, and is usually nice but can be a bit to shiny for me on my more oily days (i'm pale, i don't glow, i just glare/blind. but it's easily balanced with a light sweep of powder. i like that the product feels light weight, though is kinda weird to blend. it also doesn't dry out skin, nor did it break my sensitive skin out (in zits or hives). i used my usual gel moisturizer under, just because i don't think this would be enough for my dryer skin. the product lasted during my day out, and felt good on. it looked pretty (especially if you like a very dewy look) and did what it promised to do. bonus: i feel like my skin looks brighter /calmer redness wise after i wash this stuff off!" in 72 reviews

Now that my skin is under control, I am looking for everyday light coverage and I like this so far. One thing I'll say is that it starts to look weird if I put too much on, so just a little at a time. It gives me a nice dewy glow and takes the edge off any redness. However, I feel it accentuates any bumps/pores/weird texture on my skin and I wouldn't recommend on dry skin without laying down a moisturizer first. Ultimately I think it's hard to get the "blur" effect without clogging pores, so I don't mind it. I think this will be nice for summer, and the spf is a nice bonus.

I recently started using this tinted moisturizer and I really love it! I’ve previously used other brands like the Clinique cc cream, the nars pure radiance , and one from benefit as well . Each of those in comparison to this seemed far more emollient and left my skin feeling greasy. They even broke me out . I find that this product seems to set somewhat and I am able to apply other products over it which is nice . And it has not broken my sensitive skin out . It’s a very minimal coverage product but you can build it up to help conceal redness and discoloration with ease.

I’ve been focusing on skin care in 2019, so I wanted to find a sheer tinted moisturizer that really hydrates my skin, evens out my skin tone, and doesn’t cover my freckles or make me look cakey. This is absolutely the dream product. It’s pricier than I’d like it to be, but I’ll spend the money because a little goes a long way for me. It toned down the redness on my cheeks without covering it so I don’t need blush. I’m in the minority right now because I don’t want full coverage. It’s sheer. Which is what I wanted.

In the last month and a half I have bought and tested out five different foundations and that’s just what I’ve tried in the last six weeks. As a makeup artist for the last 15 years I’ve used and tried many, many more!! I keep going back to bareMinerals Complexion Rescue tinted hydrating gel cream, it’s not even technically exactly what you would describe as a foundation but it sure is amazing. I have mature skin, maybe someone who would typically want a full coverage foundation, however this always leaves my skin looking the absolute best. It’s lightweight, great for your skin, and allows your natural glow to shine through while still giving enough coverage to keep the spots you don’t want noticed, unnoticed! All of that and it has a refreshingly inexpensive price point!! Try it and you’ll love it, so will your skin!! Always keeping you look fresh and beautiful.

Just to be clear I know this is not a foundation. I know it’s not a heavy or full coverage item !!! But it was the first tinted moisturizer I have used. I liked it initially or should I say when it was applied to me at the makeup counter , I have dry skin but shine is an issue even after makeup is applied. So i was looking for something that wasn’t drying but matte. I can’t wear full coverage makeup because it doesn’t work well for my face. I’ve tried many high brands and drugstore brands and they just don’t sit well even after a good exfoliate and primer. Anyways I walked out buying this because she made me look bomb dot com. But after using it the next day I was so shiny or “glowing” I should say And I hated it. Even after setting it in i just felt like the product wasn’t for me. Then I realized oh duh she put powder and all the works on my after wards. After trying a few other things I went back and exchanged it for their pressed powder so fingers crossed ! I liked this but I didn’t love it. I rather have a bare face then wear this because it really didn’t make a difference to me and my skin type.

This product is very light, versatile and moisturizing! I use this as a base before applying my concealer and matte powder foundation and I have no complaints! I use the tiniest of amounts - a dot the size of a sprinkle on each cheek, my chin, my nose and my forehead - and blend it into my skin with the BM Smoothing Face brush. I'm amazed at how moisturized this small amount makes my skin feel; one morning I accidentally forgot to put moisturizer on after my shower, which usually leaves my skin feeling tight and dry, but I applied this during my usual makeup application and that feeling was avoided! This goes on pretty sheer, but serves as a great base for a foundation (especially a powder one) OR can be built to provide more substantial coverage white like a liquid foundation. This could also serve on its own as a light facial sunscreen on a trip to the beach with a very natural, no-makeup feel. Love it!

I love complexion rescue! I haven't been using it for very long since i'm new to using prestige brands, but this is my favorite so far. I can usually get it with a discount from the bareMinerals site and I barely have to use any product so it lasts a long time. I have pretty oily skin so it doesn't do anything for keeping the shine down, but it always feels good on my skin and very light. Also I can find it in a light enough shade for my face, which is really hard for me to find. The coverage isn't perfect but it's all I need as long as I have a good concealer for the bad spots on my face, and it typically blends well. I really do love this stuff but recently for some reason it's started to clump on and around my nose. I haven't changed anything in my routine so i'm not sure why it's doing that but I figure my face will work itself out eventually. I'm not giving up on it yet!

Excellent tinted moisturizer. I have used this brand for years. It does exactly what you expect from a moisturizer while correcting a lot of the complexion issues we battle with age. I can no longer wear heavier makeup so I stick with tinted moisturizers and this one is my favorite.

I love this product so much, I have a lot to cover and with some concealer and this, I don’t need a heavy foundation at all. I like how it gives me a glow! It looks so natural and I wear this when I don’t wear any other makeup and I look put together! Great consistency.

I find that using a beauty blender is the best way to apply rather than using your fingers like it suggests. It is very hydrating like it says. Once it dries it doesn’t feel like there’s anything on your skin, which I love. It gives my skin a smooth glowy finish.
It does seem more like a sheer foundation rather than a moisturizer. I say this because throughout the day it does start to wear off and crease. Overall it’s a great product for anyone with dry skin that doesn’t want a heavy coverage.

Does it work for combination/oily skin? Does it provide a medium coverage? Or is it sheer?

I've been looking for a light based foundation and I've heard a lot about this product. I have used other bare mineral products but not anything like this. I'm just starting out with makeup and was wondering if this would be a good beginners product.
