Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream | £26 | Link
After searching high and low for the perfect summer base, this fell into my clutches. The BB, CC and tinted moisturiser hybrid has the perfect concoction of ingredients which combines skin care with natural radiant coverage.
As a combination skin owner, I suffer from dry patches, redness and blemishes, to name only a few. I have to admit I was sceptical at first as light bases have never been my kind of thing, but to my surprise from the first application I knew it was like heaven in a tube. Exaggerating? Absolutely not. Although no light base is going to have the long lasting, wear and tear protection as a high coverage foundation, this formula does a great job at perfecting and hydrating the skin, whilst covering any redness. Not only does it make a noticeable difference to my dull, lacklustre skin short term, but over the past couple of weeks that I've been using this I have seen an overall improvement in my skin due to the absence of heavier foundations. With help from my trusty Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer, I can cover all bases creating a dewy, flawless finish. With added SPF 30 and a hydrating formula which is lightweight and soft to touch. this quenches the skin, whilst protecting it from the everyday sun. I have the shade Vanilla 02 and even though it matches perfectly now, I think I'm going to have to go a few shades darker when the sun begins to shine a bit more.
If you're looking at or interested in a lighter base this summer, I would recommend the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream because even though it's a mouthful to say, you still won't be able to stop talking about it.
