bareMinerals Unwrap Complexion Rescue Kit

This purchase is a case of 'The Blogger made me do it' versus 'Curiosity got the better of me' and it is not something I regret doing. The bareMinerals 3 Piece Complexion Rescue Kit is an introduction to the brand for me and until this, I had never tried anything. So off I went to Debenhams, forever the store that never lets me down and went to the counter and had a really good browse through the products. What I loved about this is the no pressure approach for sales and when I had finished, there was someone willing to talk me through products, what I wanted to achieve and what I did and did not like. At no point was I given a seat and within 3 minutes I had a full face caked with makeup.

So in the end I settled with the three-piece Complexion Rescue Collection. Described as being a kit which helps to create a smooth and flawless base, the kit comes packaged inside a lovely soft beige pouch and contains:
  • 1 x Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF30 (35ml) 
  • 1 x Complexion Rescue Mineral Veil Finishing Powder (6g) 
  • 1 x Mini Smoothing Facial Brush 
When I was shown how to use Complexion Rescue for the very first time I was wowed by it. Think BB and CC cream all in one, it is that clever and is described as being a tinted moisturiser it gives a sheer to medium coverage and it has an impressive SPF30.

What I do love about this product is just how lightweight the texture when applied. It glides onto the skin effortlessly and has a cooling feel that evens your complexion. At the heart of this formula are marine botanicals, which work to replenish the skin with quenching care, mineral electrolytes to energise, and heart-leaf globe daisy to protect against oxidative stress. 

The Complexion Rescue Mineral Veil Finishing Powder is also a great product and one I have been using constantly. The loose face powder is completely translucent and again lightweight on the skin.

What I love is that it gives a really light natural coverage and at the same time works to minimise not only the pores, but also any fine lines you might have. Add to that its ability to absorb excess oil it gives the skin UVA/UBV protection and brightens the appearance.

The final product inside the pouch is a bareMinerals Mini Smoothing Face Brush. This dual fiber synthetic brush which provides control and diffusion for a soft, smooth application.

The dome-shape design blends seamlessly for an airbrushed effect. A really lovely inclusion into this set.

For an introduction to a brand, for me this bareMinerals kit is just a brilliant idea. I paid around £25 a few months ago for the kit which is a third of the price it would have cost me had I bought all three items at full sized offerings. This way I have been able to use the products in my own time, at home and have been able to put them to the test as well as making a decision as to whether or not I want the full sized products.


Have you tried bareMinerals before and have got any recommendations?

I always overlook BM, years ago I was given a sample of their powder foundation whilst walking through Selfridges & it really wasn't for me & since then I've just never been drawn to them but this kit is brilliant & definitely something I would like to try, the base sounds right up my street, I wouldn't have ever looked had I not read your post, thank you! Xxx

  11. I've tried the odd eyeshadow and blush in a Christmas gift set but I haven't really gave this brand a decent try either. The Mineral Veil sounds really interesting.
