Today I’m Trying Out Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30!!
I’ve had this tinted moisturizer for a while. It’s the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30. I was looking for a new bb cream to try when I first picked it up. I know, it’s not a bb cream. It’s a tinted moisturizer. I feel like bb creams and tinted moisturizers can overlap sometimes. They are pretty similar from my experience. It really depends on the product itself. First, here’s more about Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30!
This product contains skincare benefits infused with naturally radiant color in one easy step. It’s lightweight, multi-tasking, skin-quenching, smooths on effortlessly with just the right amount of coverage. Sheer-to-medium coverage. It reveals dewy, healthy-looking glow to the skin instantly. Marine botanicals help hydrate and replenish thirsty skin. Antioxidants help to defend skin’s appearance against environmental stressors.
Contains non-chemical broad spectrum SPF 30. Clinically tested. Dermatologist tested. Hypoallergenic. No oils, silicones, parabens, fragrance.
By looking at the benefits of this product, it seems like something I would like. I think that’s why I purchased it in the first place. It had good reviews on it too. Now after trying the product out, here are my thoughts!
My Experience With Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream Spf 30 for the First Time!
This is a gel-cream tinted moisturizer. It comes in a 1.18 fl. oz. (35 mL) tube. The product feels soft, gel-like, and creamy. I have the shade Opal 01 (for very fair cool skin with a pink hue). That’s what it says on their website. It’s the lightest shade of the twenty shades that are available, so they do have quite a good selection of shades to choose from for all skin tones. Awesome! From my experience, tinted moisturizers don’t provide the skin much color, so I just chose the lightest shade, and it seems to be working just fine. The shade blends and adjusts to my natural skin tone after a few minutes. Shade-wise, it’s good to go, and I’m on the pale side of the spectrum. Sometimes I can use foundation with cool undertones. This tinted moisturizer glides on the skin nicely and blends into the skin well. It isn’t streaky and doesn’t leave the skin looking made up. It definitely falls under the more natural-looking side.
One thing that I noticed while wearing this tinted moisturizer is that it tends to grab onto dry skin, so make sure to moisturize beforehand. Yeah, there goes the skin-quenching and replenishing thirsty skin claims. I didn’t think it was that moisturizing on my skin. A good moisturizer underneath this tinted moisturizer is a must! Since it wasn’t too moisturizing, it seemed to work great on my oily skin. It helped to absorbed excess sebum. Along with that, yep, accentuates dry skin at the same time. It didn’t make my skin feel or look greasy. It feels very lightweight for daily use. As I mentioned before, it looks very natural on the skin. A little too natural for me. lol. I prefer to have a little bit more coverage when wearing any kind of face makeup/foundation. Medium coverage? More like light-medium but leaning towards light. It looks sheer once it settles in. It didn’t help cover any acne scars or dark under eye circles. But maybe I just have it worse. haha.
This is what the product looks like…
I tried using this tinted moisturizer alone, but I didn’t like the results. It just didn’t cover all of the imperfections that I didn’t want to see (haha!). I thought it was a little too drying even with a moisturizer too. But when I did use the tinted moisturizer alone before applying other makeup products on top, it gave me a nice subtle dewy glow to my skin. It’s weird how a product can make the skin feel dry but make the skin look all smooth, glossy, and glowy all at the same time. This is one of those products.
So I stopped using this tinted moisturizer at one point because I didn’t like the way it looked on my skin. This was when I had really bad acne. It accentuated every single little flaw on my face and felt really gross on the skin. I don’t recommend it if you have bad skin. It’ll just make you feel bad about the condition of your skin. Just wait until your skin clears up to try it out if you want. Me, I think it’s an ok tinted moisturizer so far. I didn’t notice any breakouts after using it, which is odd when it contains ingredients that my skin usually don’t like or causes me skin issues.
As for SPF, it contains SPF 30 (6.2% Titanium Dioxide). It is a mineral sunscreen. No wonder why it dried my skin out and accentuated flaky skin. Mineral sunscreens tend to do that to me. If that happens to you too, be aware of that. After trying it again, I wasn’t too impressed, but I don’t dislike the product. I just don’t think it’s the right product for my skin. I need more coverage, and I’m not liking how it accentuates dry skin. Maybe I’ll try it again in the summer when it’s warmer and when my face is ten times more oily.
I hoped this review helped! Have a nice day! 🙂

Trying Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Orange Again!
I’m testing out my previous skin care and makeup products again after leaving veganism. I have some products I’m still curious about. You know, the ones that I’ve used for 10+ years and all of a sudden stopped working out of the blue. I wanted to see if it was caused by the health issues I developed and experienced when I was vegan. So the last product I tried was a skin care product called Benton Fermentation Essence. You can read more about my experience with this product right here:

Now on to this bb cream that has been one of my HG bb creams for so many years. I’ve used it for so long that I was extremely shocked that it caused breakouts. It was such a weird reaction. Now let’s see if it still works or not. It should, right? How can something I’ve been using for so many years just stop working or change all of a sudden? The ingredients are the same as it was before! Has anyone experienced this? Anyways, so the bb cream I’m talking about today is Skin79 Super Plus Beblesh Balm Triple Function Orange BB Cream or what I call Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Orange. Yes, I shortened the name of the product because the full name of the product was just way too lengthy, and I didn’t want to keep saying it over and over (if I had to). Now on to my first time experience using this bb cream for a day!
My Experience Using Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Orange for the First Time Again
The first day of using this bb cream felt very different and exciting. I haven’t used it in so long that I can only recall how wonderful it used to be. How it provided good coverage, gave my skin a flawless look, and how it protected my skin from the sun because it contains a high SPF. This bb cream contains SPF 50+ PA+++!! That is on the high side of the spectrum for a bb cream and makeup product. No wonder why I always chose this bb cream over the rest that I had throughout the years. It’s just that awesome. And it never broke me out. Really, it never did. I was so surprised a product like this worked on my skin since it does contain some comedogenic ingredients in it. But it worked and my skin was ok with it because it never clogged my pores. Sometimes it’s not the individual ingredients alone that matters but the overall formulation of the product that matters if it’ll work on your skin or not. Just gotta try it out to see if it works or not for yourself!
So this bb cream comes in an orange clunky pump bottle. It’s rather big, but that never bothered me because it was an affordable and effective foundation for me over the years. I liked it. The product is only 1.35 fl. oz. (40 mL), but it seems to last for a very long time from my experience. I only purchased 1 bottle per year. Sometimes it’ll last even longer than a year. The product when dispensed from the bottle is a light-medium beige color with strong yellow undertones. I wasn’t bothered by the coloring of this bb cream. I mean, it’s a little darker than my skin tone, but it’s not that big of a deal. It blends into my skin just fine and the shade adjusts to my natural skin tone as it settles into the skin. The texture of the bb cream is soft, smooth, and creamy. It glides and smooths over my skin very nicely. Blends into the skin well and provides a lot more coverage compared to what I’ve been using! I would say it’s medium coverage, but it’s buildable.
With this bb cream, it did help cover up my dark under circles, some acne marks, and smoothed out the texture of my skin. Last time I used it, I experienced skin dryness, but I didn’t experience dry skin this time. It actually helped to control excess sebum on my skin. Worked well on my oily skin! Even though it didn’t dry out my skin, it did accentuate flaky skin. Oops, I think I just needed to exfoliate before using this bb cream, lol. Otherwise, my skin looked pretty good with the coverage that it gave me. The finish of this bb cream was dewy, semi-matte, not oily. It didn’t accentuate fine lines and wrinkles like it did before. It gave my skin this flawless appearance to it. I love it! I’m very happy that my experience with this bb cream is very different this time. Also, I didn’t break out after wearing it for only a day either. But who knows, it’s only been a day. I think I’m going to keep using this bb cream and see how it goes. Everything is going well so far, except for this, which is the fragrance. It contains fragrance that smells like perfume, and it’s pretty overwhelming.
That’s my first day experience of using Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Orange!! A new update coming up within a week or so!
