BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Gel Cream

Lately, I've been binging on foundations, BB creams and tinted moisturisers. When I first heard about the new Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, I knew instantly I needed it in my life. It must be fate because it was released at Mecca right before we head into the Winter season here in Australia.

This product is described as a versatile cream gel that combines skincare benefits and naturally radiant coverage in one.

The Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel comes in a squeeze tube with a nozzle tip applicator and contains 35ml worth of product…more than a standard foundation, less than the standard BB/CC cream and tinted moisturiser which is typically 50ml. This product is available in 10 different shades, however Mecca only stocks a limited shade range catering only to pale to a medium tan skin tones.

This is a mineral-based formulation with a creamy gel texture that helps brighten, retexture and hydrate dry skin. To apply I dispense a marble sized amount of product onto the back of my hand and blend it into the skin with clean fingers. For a professional finish, it is recommended that you use it with their new duo fibre smoothing face brush ($36AUD) which gives a more smoother and airbrushed finish. 

This product is so smooth and blendable and it melts into the skin! It feels hydrating, super lightweight (almost weightless!) and unbelievably soothing on my dry skin! The Complexion Rescue Gel Cream instantly reduces the look of dullness, dry patches, flakiness, redness and uneven pigmentation. It is fragrance-free and has a sheer to light coverage with a dewy, luminous finish and makes my skin look and feel smooth and naturally flawless! This can also be used as a base primer underneath full coverage foundations - I normally lather this all over and spot conceal on top.

This product wears for 6 hours on me (cold windy conditions) and did not cause any breakouts, did not irritate my skin, settle into fine lines, separate or oxidise!

The Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue is a paraben-free, oil-free, silicone-free formula with broad spectrum SPF 30 - great for daily wear/minimal and naturally glowing look. It is clinically tested, dermatologically tested, non comedogenic and hypoallergenic for those with dry and sensitive skin. This product is also fragrance-free, which is a big plus for those who are sensitive to scented cosmetics.

This product currently retails for $38 AUD at Mecca Maxima, online and in store. Overall, this product is a must-have (for dry skin types) and a make up bag/travel bag essential. This definitely retextures the skin and keeps the skin hydrated all-day! It's so comfortable to wear and looks brightening and smooth on the skin. Coverage is very sheer and shades are quite limited, but it definitely improves the look of my skin so yes, I will definitely repurchase this product in the future.
