BareMinerals Blemish Rescue Skin-Clearing Loose Powder Foundation

BareMinerals is well-known for its loose powder foundation, but did you know that the brand launched a new powder foundation that actually helps prevent and treat blemishes? Enriched with salicylic acid, oat protein, zinc, sulfur and phytosphingosine, the Blemish Rescue Skin-Clearing Loose Powder Foundation soothes and nourishes the skin while purifying pores and absorbing excess oil.

BareMinerals Blemish Rescue Skin-Clearing Loose Powder Foundation Review Swatches Before After

The Blemish Rescue foundation has a matte finish and provides sheer to medium coverage. I find that this foundation looks best if I apply it on moisturized skin, otherwise it clings onto dry patches a bit too much (like most powder foundations).

But even if I hydrate my skin properly, I always set powder foundations with a light mist of makeup setting spray too, just to make all the dry skin disappear.

Also, I get more coverage if I moisturize my skin properly. When I apply it on bare skin, the coverage is quite sheer. But when I use an hydrating primer or a moisturizer prior to putting on the foundation, the coverage is medium and slightly buildable.

By the way, my skin is very oily but sensitive and extremely dehydrated, I always have dry patches on my forehead and cheeks even if I moisturize my skin every morning and night.

This foundation stays matte for about 3 hours on me, and lasts more than 10 hours without separating or losing coverage!

I love the idea behind this product, my acne-prone skin reacts really well to salicylic acid! I use a salicylic acid-based cleanser every night (I alternate with a gentle cleanser in the morning), and it helps prevent and treat breakouts.

However, I think my skin is too sensitive for this foundation because I noticed that my skin was more dehydrated than usual after using this product for a few days in a row. My guess is that the sulfur is too drying for me, because I usually don't have a problem with salicylic acid. I think the Blemish Rescue foundation would be better for me in the summer!

    1. I wish I could wear it right now (my skin is way too sensitive in the winter), but I'm excited to try it again this summer.

  2. Oh, impressive it lasted that long. For some reason, I never try powder foundation!
