So what is Complexion Rescue?
Complexion Rescue is like a BB Cream, CC Cream and tinted moisturizer combined.
Complexion Rescue is a new tinted hydrating gel cream from bareMinerals. The cream gives your skin a youthful and dewy glow, and application is super easy. I recommend to just use your clean fingers. You don't need too much product, start with just a little. bareMinerals also recommends to apply the cream with this brush. Here are som great facts about the Complexion Rescue: did you know that in a independent US study with 62 participants no less than 100% of the participants experienced improvement in skin texture? The cream does not contain oil or fragrance, it is dermatologist tested, SPF 30, hypoallergenic and non-comodogenic. Best of all, the product really delivers.
This is my review of Complexion Rescue:
I unfortunately missed the press launch for this cream as both baby and mama were sick that day, so I had no expectations when the products that I was going to test popped up at my door. Without even thinking I started going through the colors and decided that I was going to test a shade that was a bit too dark for me. I mean, summer is just around the corner, time to prepare! Tan 07 looked appropriately golden. I washed my face and started applying a thin layer without really thinking about what I was doing. I looked into the mirror and my first reactions was: WOW! Yes, the color was a tone or two darker than my original skincolor, but it melted into my skin, and my skin looked radiant and amazing! I seriously ran to the other testers and started to look for a color to "highlight" under my eyes, on my nose and on my chin, to make up for the darker toned 07 Tan on my face. I fell for the color Buttercream 03 because it was yellow toned and reminded me of another favourite from bareMinerals: Summer Bisque Concealer. I read that the Complexion Rescue can be layered where you need more coverage so I layered just a tiny bit more under my eyes. I seriously felt flawless for the rest of the day.
After testing a bit, I have now found out that my proper color is Ginger 06 (for medium skin with golden tones) so this is the color that I stick to for everyday application. When choosing the right tone for you remember to check if you have a warm or cold skintone. I have a strange mix of both golden/yellow undertones and cool complexion but I generally gravitate towards colors with the word "golden" in it.
Here is a quick look at the different tones:
You can check out all the tones here, but since it is hard to see which colors are what, I have made a little guide for you here (from lightest to darkest):
Opal 01 - for the fairest porcelain skin with cool tones.
Vanilla 02 - for light skin with neutral tones
Buttercream 03 - For light skin with golden tones *I use this to lighten up areas where the light hits on my face.
Suede 04 - For medium skin with cool tones
Natural 05 - For medium skin with neutral tones
Ginger 06 - For medium skin with golden tones. *My perfect shade
Tan 07 - For tan skin with neutral tones. *I enjoy using this on my forehead!
Spice 08 - For tan skin with golden tones
Chestnut 09 - For dark skin with golden tones
Sienna 10 - For deep skin with neutral tones
Being obsessed with bareMinerals products, I recommend Complexion Rescue 100%.
The cream is especially perfect for the coming summer months when you don't want to wear make-up, but still want to look picture perfect. Complexion Rescue promises to improve your skin while you are wearing it!
