bareMinerals SPF 15 Original Foundation Review

This is a guest review of bareMinerals Foundation.

I’ve worn foundation since my parents said I was old enough to wear makeup. Unfortunately, I never found a foundation I liked enough to stick with until five years ago. The first time I used bareMinerals SPF 15 Original Foundation I fell in love. It’s easy to love this foundation because it’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a foundation, whether I knew it at the time or not.

Bare Minerals Foundation Review

My skin is clear but it tends to go oily after a while. What I disliked about other foundations I used is that the thick consistency of the liquid foundations made my skin look cracked and thick after a few hours. I looked like a beauty pageant contestant with 15 pounds of makeup on my face. Powder foundations tended to make my skin look uncovered, which was fine most of the time. However, I tend to break out a little once a month and my powder foundations did nothing to cover that up.

The first time I wore bareMinerals I fell in love. My face looked flawless yet it also looked like I had no makeup on. The best part was that my face looked the same way eight hours later as I was headed home from a long day out and about. Despite the summer heat in Florida, the humidity, and the fact that I spent the day outside shopping and sweating my face still looked immaculate. The foundation also made my shininess and oily t-zone look less oily. I felt that my previous makeup brands enhanced the oiliness of my skin by the end of the day.

To make me love this foundation even more is the fact that it’s all natural and has no harsh chemicals. I already have good skin so I didn’t notice a change in my skin from using bareMinerals, but I do know others who use the same makeup who have noticed fewer breakouts and improved skin since they began using it. It’s easy to put on and it lasts all day long. It even keeps my skin looking good when I go swimming and get my face wet. I love the fact that I don’t have to worry that my face will look rough at the end of a beach day or a pool day with my kids because I literally have to use my gentle face cleanser at night to remove the makeup from my face. It’s just that good.

When you apply this light powder foundation you don’t expect it’s going to do much for your skin, but the immediate coverage is astounding. Add to that the fact that it is light and leaves you looking flawless but fresh and it’s the perfect foundation. I’ve been using bareMinerals for five years and I cannot find anything to complain about. Some people say I’m silly to pay so much for makeup, but I don’t consider the price high at all considering I get four months out of one little container and I wear it on a daily basis.

Buy it at Sephora

  1. Their formula is great. But they don’t have a great color selection.

  2. I love bareMinerals products, and I was happy to read this review. The staff at the boutiques is always incredibly helpful. Thank you for hosting the blog hop (I’m very proud of myself since I figured out how to put your badge on my sidebar!) xo

  3. Thanks Moxie! I probably should remind people of the blog hop again. When I do so, it gets quite active, but people don’t tend to remember to come back the next week!
