bareMinerals SPF 20 Moisturizer for Normal to Dry Skin
Not For Me
I really wanted to love this, but unfortunately It wasn't meant to be. I have very dry skin and it didn't keep my skin hydrated. Yes, it's thick but I can look past that. As long if the moisturizer is benefiting me (Not in this case). Who knows what didn't work for me, might work for you! At least you know QVC has a good return policy.
Broke me out
Now, I think I'm not the normal customer because apparently all skin care breaks me out. But what's odd is the entire make up line is just about the only makeup I can use without breakouts, ever. But I've tried all of the skin care as well as the cleanser and they create a problem with blemishes. Except for the powder based transformation night treatment. AlthoughI don't see any different results from it than with the powder makeup.
I convinced many of my friends to change to Bare Minerals because I think it's the best after many years of using it. Just wish they had some moisturizer product I could use as well, since without moisturizer I get a bit of a dry look with powder makeup.
I purchased this in the Combination Skin formula. I love it! I can go without makeup if I'm in a hurry and still look fabulous and dewy. I would love this in an auto delivery option and if you want to super size that would really be wonderful. The combo skin formula is not too thick to work with. As others have mentioned, a dab of your regular moisturizer will fix that easily. I Love the sheer tint. I like to show off my freckles yet still look luminous and healthy. Great product. : )
Very Nice Moisturizer
I've read the reviews that say it doesn't spread well. However, it is much denser than the other BM moisturizers I've used, perhaps because of the increased sun protection factor. You simply need to massage a bit more. I give myself a little face massage every time I use it and I love the added SPF for hot days when I just use moisturizer and a bit of blush and eye liner and no foundation.
I really love this moisturizer! It has a smooth luxurious texture. It does come out a little thick but I found it extremely easy to blend seamlessly into my skin. I purchased the tinted version and I typically use fairly light foundation. It adds a light subtle hint of color but without being obvious. There are only two things I would change, which would be to increase the sun protection to SPF 30 and super-size it so it will last longer.
I see that others are saying this is thick, I did not mind that at all. It is the smell that is very upsetting. While this is on the thicker side yes, and I did not get burned while riding my motorcycle from MI to Idaho, I just can't get past the funny smell. It reminds me of those fake tan lotions. I would not buy this again. I think you can find another moisturizer that would go on better and not sit on top of your face. So now I am left with this and dont know what to do with it. I was going to use it on my arms just for the SPF factor, but cant get past the smell...YUCK...works as a sun screen though...
I first purchased this product for a backpacking trip into the Grand Canyon. I needed the sunscreen, and a tinted moisturizer seemed great. No need to be completely roughing it! My skin stayed hydrated and protected. I agree it's a bit thick for everyday. I mix in a little of my regular normal to dry moisturizer with it and it goes on just great. I have a nice glow and I can even go without my mineral foundation if desired.
I purchased this product for the spf protection for the summer. I agree that this is way to thick and hard to spread on the face. I use the purely nourishing face cream at night and in the winter and love it. This seems to be protecting my face but they have to change the consistency of the cream.
Very disappointed in this product. I like the color, however, very thick, hard to apply and not moisturizing at all. Leaves my skin feeling like I have heavy makeup on.
I haven't returned it and I should
Worst Purchase Ever...
In my opinion this is by far the worst thing I've ever put on my face. Way to thick and sticky. BE makeup wouldn't go on right. It was hard to get off. I'll just stick with original BE moisturizer and sunblock.
Best Tinted Moisturizer!
And I've tried many! That being said, I came back to order another and found the "Sheer" (the tinted one) to be unavailable! :( Please bring that back. This is a great tinted moisturizer--not heavy and a nice hint of color. I don't wear any foundation with this. My skin is on the dry side, so the Normal to Dry is perfect for me. Given that the Sheer isn't available, I won't be ordering another now--but I'll keep watching. And auto-delivery would also be great! Again, please bring it back.
too thick to spread
i was disappointed in this as it was too thick to spread evenly and the tinted one had more color than i expected, plus it didn't spread either.
