Say hello to my new go-to Summer base product; bareMinerals Complexion Rescue.
You may remember me speaking about the launch event I went to in Fenwicks at Newcastle a few months ago... well in my goody bag I received a little sample of Complexion Rescue, and literally the moment I tried it, I was hooked! 

At the event we heard lots about the science behind the product, which got me really intrigued and excited to try it, and I can honestly say that I love it wether I wear it alone or as a base underneath my foundation.
I have never been a fan of BB creams or CC creams, and initially expected this to be the same, but I couldn't have been more wrong... firstly, it has a gel consistency, unlike anything I have used before, a little goes a really long way and when buffed into the skin it gives pretty decent coverage (I'd say a strong medium) which when teamed with my concealer is good enough coverage for me, and I used to be a go full coverage or go home kinda gal!

For those of you who suffer from sensitive skin like I do, you will love the fact that this contains mineral infused water which has been injected with pigment, which means it gives a cooling sensation on application, and believe me nothing feels nicer than buffing this into my skin on a hot morning when my face is feeling tight and sore... it's an absolute dream!
Complexion Rescue has also been proven to increase the hydration of the skin by up to 215% in just one week, while locking in and retaining moisture, it really is the product that girls with dry skin have been waiting for.

I've been wearing shade 02 Vanilla, which is a near perfect match, although I think when I repurchase I might go for 01 Opal for the Winter months when my skin is paler, there are 10 shades available FYI. After using this daily for over three months, I have seen vast improvement in the condition of my skin, my dryness isn't anything like it was and breakouts are few and far between.
I have also received lots of compliments on how fresh and dewy my skin looks when I wear this, people comment lots, which never happened before and it's crazy how much my age is questioned... and I thank this product for that.

If you haven't given this a try yet, get yourself to your nearest bareMinerals counter for a colour match or sample, I honestly think you'll love it as much as I do!
