Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30

I’ve had this 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. I know, it’s not a bb cream. It’s a tinted moisturizer. I feel like bb creams and tinted moisturizers overlap. They are pretty similar from my experience.

Review:

This tinted moisturizer dispenses out as a gel-cream (what the product states). It blends into the skin well. Definitely good for oily skin. I have oily skin, and it didn’t leave my skin looking shiny. It made my skin appear nice and dewy. Gave my skin that healthy glow. It wasn’t hydrating though as the product claims. My skin felt as if it needed moisture after application. As for the coverage, it didn’t provide my skin any coverage. I mean, at all. Saying that it provides medium coverage is really pushing it. This tinted moisturizer would be good for someone with perfect skin. I’ve been using it on and off as a base only because it does nothing for my skin. I like the fact that it contains SPF, but I wear sunscreen underneath my makeup. I also have other bb creams with spf + coverage. I need something more. Something with actual coverage. Tinted moisturizers never do it for me. When I dispense the product out of the tube, it has color to it. But when I apply it to my skin, there’s some color…but the color fades when I blend it into my skin and washes off. I thought this product was fairly useless, so I won’t purchase it again. It’s not worth the money to me. It’s a no-go. On to the next!

30 Days of BP: Week 4

Week 4 Results…

This week is going to be different. I’m going to cut down on using BP. I’m thinking 3-4 times a week depending on how my skin responds to the treatment. Maybe only 2 times a week. If I need to use more BP, I’ll use more. If I need to use less, I’ll use less of it. On rest days (no BP), I will focus on Cos De BAHA Acne Serum instead. I’ve noticed positive results with it, read more below!! Let’s see how this goes! 😀

Day 22: Rest Day — I mentioned earlier that I’m going to focus on Cos De BAHA Acne Serum instead. Here’s why. It’s working. I’ve noticed an improvement in my skin after using it for less than a week. I did end up with some acne when I first started, but they have subsided and are healing. Cos De BAHA hasn’t eliminated all of the clogged pores/acne, but it’s doing a better job than BP has. Wow, I’m very excited to see results right in front of me!!! My skin looks brighter too. 🙌🏻

Day 23: Rest Day — Another day off of BP. I’m continuing to use Cos De BAHA Acne Serum in the morning and at night when I’m off of BP. My skin looked pretty good this morning. The hard sebum I’ve been complaining about are slowing dissapearing! I think the serum is working!! I can tell that it’s working when I run my hands over my face! The bumps are smoothing out and coming out by themselves! WOW! Can’t wait to see what results I’ll get tomorrow when I’m going at this rate with the Acne Serum. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Day 24: Rest Day — My skin looked pretty decent today. No new obvious pimples. Good, good. So I thought about my skin care routine. If there’s a possibility that something else I’m using is making my skin worse…that I don’t know of. I read about Galactomyces breaking people out. I thought, hey, that might be the cause. And, I haven’t noticed any improvements using the Galactomyces serum. I’m going to stop using Cos De BAHA 94 Galactomyces Serum, since it hasn’t done anything for my skin. I mean, it COULD be clogging my pores that I don’t know of. Or not. Who knows. Let’s remove it and see what happens.

Day 25: Rest Day — Having a good skin day this morning. Much, much better compared to yesterday. Hoping the comedones are going to vanish by the end of the week after I stopped using Cos De BAHA 94 Galactomyces Serum. I haven’t touched BP since last Friday, lol. My skin is loving the Acne Serum! =)

Day 26: Rest Day — I’m thinking if I should use BP anymore. My skin is improving slowly. I still don’t like how BP dulls my skin out. My skin looks way brighter using the Acne Serum + other serums. Should I continue to use BP or just the serums? I’ll have to think about it. Maybe BP once a week? Hmmm. I’ve been using my serums this whole week with improvements…

Day 27: Rest Day — Another rest day. Skin is looking good. Pimples are going away. Pores unclogging. Hard sebum removing themselves. I’m able to extract them too! Wow, my skin looks so soft and smooth. It’s not perfect YET, but it’s going somewhere. By the end of the week, I will determine if I should continue to use BP or not.

Day 28: Rest Day — Yet another rest day. I’ve decided to continue on with my serums unless I need to use BP. I’ve only used BP for 18 nights (doesn’t include rest days). During those times, my skin was meh. It didn’t yield the results that I wanted. So, I’m going to end this BP Journey and move on to another journey, which is with the Cos De BAHA Acne Serum. =)

Note: I started to use AHA too. Gave me some breakouts…but it’s not irritating my skin at all. My skin is getting better! 🙌🏻

Moving on to another grand experience!! See you all there!! 🙂
