Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Your skin but better" I love this product!! I've been searching for months for a perfect product to solve my dilemma - I hate wearing foundation but I want to my skin to look better than with nothing on. It applies beautofully, I would recommend just using your fingers and it lasts quite a while. I wouldn't say it lasts all day but it surely would survive a work day. I think it's great, expensive but worth every penny!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me Unfortunately the complexion rescue gave me an allergic reaction. I have sensitive, combination skin with mild rosacea and I got redness, spots and bumps. I much prefer the Multi Tasking Concealer and the Original SPF foundation which I totally love and work wonder on my skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only for clear healthy skins I use this product as I trust the quality of Bareminerals so I trust that I am hydrating my skin whilst providing UV protection, I don't think it covers any tiny light blemish it only gives a nice texture to your skin, in my case it doesn't exacerbate the horrible acne I suffer from neither clots my pores, don't put much as recommended by Bareminerals because it crumbs therefore will peel off lifting other makeup

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fresh, light & dewy Hydrating cream that gives me the amount of coverage I need for work and chilled out days. The light - medium coverage is enough if you want to even out your skin tone and to brighten and hydrate your face. I love this product even more once I bought the smoothing face brush - I feel it gives a better finish and more coverage. The best BB/CC/tinted moisturiser by far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I absolutely love this - it is great on its own if you want sheer coverage (evens out my skin beautifully), and I also use it as a base under a light application of blemish remedy foundation when I want more coverage. I don't find it makes my skin oily and it is easy to apply with the smoothing face brush. I will definitely re-purchase this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dry eczema prone skin I was recommended this product when at Bare Minerals by an employee who said this is what would work best with my skin as I have eczema and very dry skin on my face. So far the product works well with my dry areas, as it doesn't seem to aggravate them at all. However, given with my eczema I have red patches on my face and I can't say this provides coverage for them as even after applied they are still very visible. I am currently using this product with the bare minerals performance wear foundation over the top which isn't as best for moisture but works well with this cream in terms of coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love This product is just what I was looking for it looks very natural when applied for everyday use feels light on the skin and has SPF protection against the sun. Definantly my favourite bare minerals product and is an essential to my skincare range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, glowing skin Tried this product as a tinted moisturiser never been a fan of others. Use this almost everyday as my skin is blotchy most days. Small pea sized amount gives amazing coverage. Even used as a foundation when no time to do makeup amazing product. I usually finish it off with mineral veil.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gives a lovely glow I only just bought this product a few weeks ago but really like the way it gives skin a really hydrated look. The only negatives I have found are that it can be a bit gloupy at times (though Im not sure if I just got one from a bad batch or could even be due to the hot weather we have had lately) and also i have some skin pigmentation and sadly it doesnt cover it as well as I would have hoped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the market! I prefer tinted moisturisers to foundations. I have tried loads from expensive brands to own brands. I can say that the Bare Minerals Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream is the best I have found. It goes on well and is light enough. It is also a lovely colour. Not too pale but most definitely not orange. It blends well into my skin. Top marks to Bare Minerals. It's not badly priced either although would be more expensive than shop own brands.

Q & A

what is the best way to apply this product?

i currently use the original power product and apply with a brush but was looking at the reviews on this and wanted to give it a try
Asked by: ACT1
I have tried it with several different brushes - the smoothing face brush gives a sheer coverage and more dense brushes give a light/medium coverage. I think you can also apply with your fingers like a moisturiser for a sheer coverage. I hope this helps

Primer confusion!!!

Hi all I have been using Complexion Rescue as my main foundation for several weeks now over the top of Prime Time. I love the natural appearance. My question is this. Is this product meant to be a primer? I read that people are using it under BareSkin and Original. I'm so used to primer that I'm not convinced CR could replace one but am I wrong??? I have all types of bareMinerals foundations. Can Complexion Rescue replace primer and save me having so many bottles on my dressing table?! Thanks!
Asked by: Kirsten

Is this a moisturiser or a makeup?

My skin feels very tight when I use this gel so I was wondering if I should be using a moisturiser first - I do use the mineralixir serum. Also, I do like the BB Primer and wondered if I should be using this underneath the Complexion Rescue.
Asked by: Sassie
I usually moisturise, then apply PrimeTime original primer, and then the Complexion Rescue. I've tried it a couple of times without the primer but find it lasts longer and covers better with a base.

Can you wear it over a sunscreen instead of a foundation powder?

And with 'can' I mean: Will it look just as good? :) Thanks
Asked by: Avajo
I tried wearing mine over my moisturising sunscreen (which was spf40) and found that it didn't blend very well or give very good coverage. They were both too greasy to be compatible and just sort of slid about over each other! So I tried it on it's own, with some of the all over warmth bronzer on top, and it was great! I guess it depends on how hot it is where you live as to whether the spf30 in it is enough for you. Hope this helps.

Do i wear this underneath my foundation?

Is this to wear underneath my foundation or on its own? Thanks
Asked by: Bobby
Yes you can wear this underneath your foundation to create a more flawless look. Or you can wear it alone for a lighter coverage.Both looks good.

Skin tone

I tried the vanilla sample after deciding my skin tone was neutral however when I put it on it seemed rather dark and slightly orange. Should I go for cool skin tone instead or it this product not right for me?
Asked by: Cat82
Try Opal is that is meant with fairly light and cool tones! Don't be worried as that's 01 as its not measured like that! I use Natural 05 and Suede 04. Natural 05 is actually lighter than 04 but it is all about the tone!

Can you wear this and skip moisturizer?

I have combination skin.
Asked by: MissTeabag
I also have combination skin. I don't wear moisturiser under CR, I do however find that wearing primer as a base helps to balance my skin out, and provides the perfect base :)

What Shade?

I wear Ready foundation R250, I want this for daily use so I don't expect as much coverage or to spend as much time applying it. I use the BB cream in medium for work but I find there isn't much coverage at all so I'm hoping this will be what I am looking for. What shade would you recommend?
Asked by: yvmcc
Hiya, No-one can answer this (honestly) as it calls for a visit to a BM counter.
