Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream Review

Hi everyone! I wanted to do a review on a product that I wasn't too sold on before actually trying it, the idea of the product seemed a bit too good to be true to me, however I'm in love! Before I went on holiday I knew I would have to buy a darker foundation anyway to match my face but I was undecided on what to get as I didn't want anything heavy or matte, I just wanted a light natural foundation. After looking around a bit I saw that Bare Minerals had come out with a product called Complexion Rescue and it is described as a tinted hydrating gel cream. The website states that it is a 'multi-tasking genius that combines skincare benefits and naturally radiant coverage in one.' To me it sounded like a perfect holiday foundation, good for your skin while you are out in the sun with a natural radiant look. It also says on the website that after wearing for a week you have a 215% increase in skin hydration. I was sold on the description because it sounded amazing but I was a little bit cautious as I was scared it would be too good to be true! 

I bought the product anyway from my local Debenhams where the woman working at the counter matched me up to a shade darker than I was so that when I was tanned it would be perfect, she managed to match it perfect as well I can say now I am tanned! For anyone wondering I got mine in the shade Natural 05. Another plus is that it contains SPF30 which is again perfect for a holiday. I didn't use it until the first few days in until my colour started to change but when I did I fell in love! It has surprisingly good coverage considering it isn't designed to be a full coverage foundation, yes concealer was needed over problem areas but I didn't have to layer the foundation as one layer was enough. It's got a really natural dewy glow and it just makes you look really healthy! Plus it's nice and cooling on the skin and feels very light. 

The colour looks a lot lighter on my hand because my face never goes as dark as the rest of me (sadly) but you can see how it's a thick consistency, not runny at all, full on matching the gel cream description. It's nice and easy to blend as well, I had no problems getting a natural finish. Another thing I love about this product for a holiday is the packaging, it comes in a squeezy tube which you can see above so smashed bottles will never be a problem. It comes with 35ml so just a little bit more than the standard 30ml foundations which is also a bonus. 

I would definitely say this is my go to summer foundation and I am considering buying it in my normal shade after my tan fades as I'm so obsessed! So great for when your skin is looking better and you want that light natural coverage that makes you really glowy and healthy, it retails for £26 so it is a bit pricey however a little goes a long way and the 35ml bottle will last ages! 

I'll put a picture of me wearing it on holiday below however it was taken on an iPhone camera so the quality is rubbish and doesn't show how nice the foundation actually is but I'll put it in anyway so you can get an idea.

Overall I'd definitely recommend this foundation, it's ideal for summer and it also made my skin feel 10x after wearing it for a while, the claim that it hydrates your skin is so true, thanks for reading let me know in the comments if you have this product or are thinking of getting it!xxx
