Including an initial failed color match, I’ve been using the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue tinted hydrating gel cream (what a mouthful) for a few weeks now and ooooohhhh I am so excited to share. I’m not planning to ditch my regular foundation, but what an excellent alternative!
I recently ordered this because I have a pretty exciting trip coming up next month and the one item repeatedly suggested to me was tinted moisturizer or a BB cream type of product. Somehow, I didn’t actually own anything in this category, and the thought of beautiful but lazy makeup while traveling sounds fantastic, so after some preliminary research, I decided to give this one a go.
As usual, a few basics before I get into my actual review:
My skin: I have dehydrated combination skin, which means I overproduce oil if I get too dry, and in general my cheeks are drier while my “T-zone” (forehead, nose, and chin) can develop quite a bit of shine throughout the day.
