A221890 - bareMinerals SPF 20 Moisturizer for CombinationSkin
To much shine
I like the color and texture. I wish it came in matte instead of shine which makes me look greasy even with mineral veil.
Took me a couple days to love it!
I was not happy at first with the tinted moisturizer. I thought it was way too greasy. There was no way that I could even think of putting make up over it. It took me a couple of days to tweak how I put it on my face. I finally figured out to apply the moisturizer on slightly moist skin. The moisturizer sinks right in and looks and feels perfect. I break out from everything and this has not bothered my face at all. I gives me the right amount of color that I hardly need any foundation. I think this is the best tinted moisturizer that I have ever tried. I highly recommend it.
Finally, a tinted moisturizer w/SPF that I can wear! Will say that I wish it were SPF30,but I still gave it 5stars. Have combo skin that the oily can really get oily and have never been able to wear foundation. This one is my answer to both. Since am trying to protect my face from sun, it's not tan as the rest of me...until I put this on. Plus this makes my skin so nice--and I do not have good skin. Aged, wrinkled, pores,etc...but this looks good. I do use a moisturizer under it,but is more for skin care (vitamin c) than moisture..can wear this alone, but like it w/moisturizer. Enough color that I'm not pale,but don't look like am wearing foundation.Foundation looks heavy and madeup on me, until this. Doesn't clog my pores.Live in FL and it doesn't suffocate my face. Am going to have to reorder, as , unfortunately, I cannot tell if am running out of it or not! Do wish something could be done about that. But will not stop me from continuing to wear this. Nobody is harder to please than me and I love this. Thank you,Leslie! Oh and it's not greasy to me....give it a moment to "rest".......I do use a primer on top of it on my nose and cheek area, but is to soften my pores...If you've oily skin, try it....works great!
It has been difficult finding a moisturizer that will not cause clogged pores on my face. The search is over. I have been using this daily for 2 months without any problem. It feels light on your skin and love that it has SPF since I now live in Florida. Have always hated the feel of sunscreen and the strong odor. This has a slight sunscreen smell when first applied,but it dissipates quickly. By the way, I use the untinted version. Love this product. Thank you,Leslie.
Found My Moisturizer!
I received a sample of this moisturizer in the mail couple of weeks ago. I have very sensitive combination skin and struggle finding products for my face. My skin loves, loves this moisturizer. So much that I'm ordering full size. Thanks for great product Bare Minerals.
This is a good moisturizer. I really like it. Just one thing, I have oily skin and it has a slight brightening effect to it which I do love but it kinda makes my face a little be to shiny looking. I was hoping this would have the brightening effect but be kinda matte as well. That's the reason I didn't give it 5 stars. On it's on without makeup kinda shiny but it's fabulous under my foundation and mineral veil. It gives me a great coverage.
Too Greasy for Me
Like most of the other reviews, I found the tinted product:
A. too greasy
B. too heavy
C. felt like liquid foundation
D. unable to apply BE makeup over this
Recommend with certain exceptions
While I love the new SPF Tinted Moisturizer, I can see where some are going to have some problems with it. You really need to use sparingly on your face. It is a little thicker and I don't think the tint is going to work with all skin tones. I found what works best for me is to put on a little of the regular moisturizer first, then put the tinted over it. For my arms and hands it give a very nice hint of color without having to Faux Tan and gives the SPF protection, too.
Works Great For Me
I am enjoying this new moisturizer from BE! It works great under my BE foundation and has a great feel! :-)
THE BEST FOR MY SKIN!!!!
I am in my 40's and have combination skin. It is a Real Challenge to find the Right moisturizer. I FINALLY FOUND IT HERE!!!! ALSO; WITH THE SPF 20. THANK-YOU LESLIE!!!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE THE BEST!!! KEEP IT COMING!! MY SKIN LOVES YOU!!!!
Just what I was looking for!
I love this moisturizer! I was looking for a daily moisturizer with SPF to replace my philosophy tinted moisturizer with SPF, wishing that bareMinerals made a lotion with SPF and then I found this! I'm moving to more natural skincare without all the chemicals that philosophy continues to use. I bought the tinted version of this and it's perfect! I have tan asian skin, I use medium tan in bareMinerals makeup. When I first pumped this out, it looked a lot darker than I expected, but it blends flawlessly into my skin. It also gives me a hint of coverage and a dewy look to my skin. It's a little dryer than the moisturizers I'm used to, maybe I have slightly dry skin. But while this may feel a tad dry when it first goes on, that feeling is gone quickly and I think it does give me enough moisturization. I use one full pump and a tiny bit more for my whole face. My bareMinerals makeup goes on smoothly on top of this when I choose to use it. Most of the time I just use this lotion and I feel like it has enough coverage for daily wear. I use the non SPF version of this for dry skin at night and I love that too! I also use the bareMinerals facial cleaner. Love bareMinerals skincare and it's so nice that they use more natural ingredients than a lot of skincare lines. I'm completely switching over from my Philosophy skincare which i've been using for years.
Wouldn't buy again
I love BE but I don't love this product. The consistency it leaves on my face is exactly like putting on regular sunscreen instead of using a moisturizer with sunscreen. I was hoping it would be smoother like a moisturizer. It leaves my face feeling greasy. I have combo skin and the best solution I have found is combining the regular combo skin daily moisturizer with the dry skin moisturizer, both from BE. The mixture of the 2 works very well.
