It’s 2015 dolls, and with a new year comes new destinations, new adventures, new relationships, new goals and new habits – specifically skincare habits.
Skincare has always been something I took very seriously – I’ve got loads of serums, moisturizers, eye creams – all with which I pile on to keep my face moisturized. It’s a bit trickier when you’re traveling to take all of these bottles and jars with you – it weighs you down and bulks up your bag, but if I don’t bring all of these products with me, my face ends up so dry it hurts to smile sometimes.
So when the team over at Bare Minerals sent me this Complexion Rescue tinted hydration gel cream, I was a bit hesitant at first. Would this work for me? Match my skin tone? How dark is it? Do I need to put on loads of layers? What is the coverage like? I know sunscreen is so essential to preventing wrinkles and uneven skin tone, but if I don’t slather on deep moisturizer beforehand, it makes my face feel chalky and dry again. Would this do the same thing to me?
But this stuff is made to moisturize your skin, give you buildable coverage to even out your skin tone, and provide SPF protection. One product vs. Three products. Done.
And at only 1.18 fl oz., this little baby will fit right in my carry-on. TSA-friendly.
So I’ll be putting this on every morning underneath my loose powder (which also happens to be Bare Minerals, ironically) and everyday makeup regimen. No more of this multi-bottle, multi-product madness. Just one, and done.
P.S. Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue comes in 10 shades (I wear Ginger, #06), and is priced at $29. I use the Smoothing Face Brush ($28) to apply. Head on over to BareMinerals.com to try it.
So my main 2015 goal was to pack and live lighter. What are some of your 2015 goals?
