Winter came pretty late this season in Belgium but right now, it’s here in full swing. I can see trees and roads covered in snow from my office window and people are out and about in Uggs & beanies. While it’s pretty obvious to bundle up before heading out the door, adding those essentials gloves & winter booties, we often forget to protect our skin from the cold as well. And between the freezing temperatures outside and the dryness caused by heating, it really needs some love.
Enter bareMinerals complexion rescue. Now this product isn’t really new for me, in fact, it has been in my beauty stash ever since I went to Chicago last year. But for the last few months, I’ve using my Bobbi Brown intensive skin serum foundation so meticulously that I pushed this at the back of my drawer. I cracked it out recently since I was looking for a little bit less coverage as my skin is doing better at the moment, and I forgot how much I love it. This tinted gel glides onto the skin and blends beautifully and effortlessly. I like to use my brand new beauty blender with it and tap it gently onto my skin. The color match is great for me, even in the dead of winter, and I find that I use a bit less concealer when I put this on. The finish is dewy so I like to set it in place with a powder (the Hourglass lighting powder in dim light to be exact) but once it’s set, it doesn’t budge for up to 8 hours. The best part? When I take it off at night, my skin feels great. It’s plumped and fresh, just what I like. So if you’re on the hunt for a new base product that feels and look great, look no further, this is the one.
