Live vicariously through our blog to get a feel for some of the best bareMinerals products that have just dropped here at FD. From the brand’s well-known original loose powder foundation to preventative and anti-ageing skincare products, our editor has tried and tested a range of products to give you the full lowdown on the bareMinerals goodies you need to get your hands on.

Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

Tinted moisturisers are a staple and the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue is now at the very top of my list. Hydrating skincare fused with natural-looking coverage? Bring it my way! I am definitely a skincare junkie, interested in any products that are going to give me a dewy, illuminating, radiant finish and this tinted moisturiser does just that. On feel-good skin days where I have minimal imperfections, this is a gorgeous product to pop on with a touch of bronzer and a swipe of lipgloss.

Original Loose Powder Foundation

To be completely honest, as with a lot of people when it comes to a foundation they’ve never tried before, I was sceptical at first. However, with the right base product such as bareMinerals BUTTER DRENCH Restorative Rich Cream to give you that layer of hydration, the bareMinerals Original Loose Powder Foundation is a pretty amazing product. The minerals warm up on your skin and transform into a weightless cream that effortlessly evens out your skin tone and leaves you with a silky, satin base. It works best with the incredible bareMinerals Beautiful Finish Brush, and for additional coverage on blemishes, I like to dab my little finger into the powder and lightly pack it on my skin where I need it.

Mineralist Hydra Smoothing Lipstick

The formula of these lipsticks… heaven! Both matte and sheen lipstick-lovers will adore these because they carry a lot of pigment but leave you with a luscious layer of hydration that isn’t super shiny or glossy. Perfect for keeping more natural or layering a gloss on top, bareMinerals Hydra Smoothing Lipstick formula is super handy to have in your makeup bag. Available in a wide range of colours too from fiery reds to creamy nudes, we wish you good luck in choosing just one (or five).

Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum

Moving onto bareMinerals skincare products, we have this icon that actually won a Glamour 2021 Beauty Award. If you’re a serum collector and enjoy natural or vegan products, this is one for you. Powered by a unique superfood complex, Long Life Herb, in just two pumps, it makes the skin feel hydrated and strengthened. Serums are a step many people (myself included) are guilty of skipped in their daily skin routine, often too excited to dip into moisturisers and eye creams but applying a serum first feels great.

Ageless Phyto-Retinol Neck Cream

Finally, we have a product that’s a little more out there than others considering it focuses on neck care. You heard it right. The bareMinerals Agless Phyto-Retinol Neck Cream is a great product to use in your preventative or anti-aging skincare routine. This luxe product features Phyto-Retinol, a natural, plant-based retinol alternative that works just as well without causing the usual redness and dryness. As a young twenty-something, my neck doesn’t look super aged but it’s a great product to use knowing that when I moisturise my face and body, my neck isn’t left out!
