bareMinerals 'BARESKIN'

Something exciting happened at the bareMinerals counter in Boots this week; yesterday, in fact! The brand new foundation BARESKIN became available and it is just lovely. I haven't invested in it yet, but I made sure to get a sample and as soon as pay day arrives, I'll be picking up my own bottle.

BARESKIN pure brightening serum foundation is a very unique base, one like I've never come across before. It is the first ever mineral foundation and skincare serum in one and is proven to improve the appearance of dark spots, skin brightness and skin texture.  BARESKIN is hypoallergenic, non-comodegenic (meaning it won't block your pores), dermatologist tested and contains a non-chemical SPF 20.

I really love the feel of this foundation; it is really light on the skin, like super light! It honestly feels like I'm not wearing makeup and I know a lot of makeup products make that claim, (and although some live up to those claims, not all do) but this one really does. It gives such a beautiful and natural finish and it truly brightens the skin. This is made possible with the Lilac Plant Stem Cells and Vitamin C contained in the foundation.

Application is easy with the specially designed brush to go alongside BARESKIN. It is super soft and has a dip in the bristles. The idea is that you shake your foundation, put 1-2 drops into the dip and then buff the foundation into the skin. That really is all you need as a little goes a long way, so a bottle should last you way longer than your typical foundation.

BARESKIN is available in a whopping 20 shades... 20! The shades aren't exactly what they appear on the outside; I would be almost pure white if they were. I've heard mixed reviews about the packaging, with some people saying it looks 'fake' and 'not your typical foundation', but I actually really like it. They are different, which I love and I also think they look really professional, like something you'd see on a Makeup Artist's table at photo or film set. You can pick up your bottle of BARESKIN for £26, which I think for 1-2 drops a day is a steal - I imagine this is going to last for absolutely ages. The brush is sold separately for £24, which as an initial investment with the foundation may seem a little pricey, but you won't be buying a new brush each time. I don't have a brush yet and have been using my hands to apply my sample with. It works well, but I've tried it in store with the brush and there is a definite difference in the quality of the finish. If you can afford to treat yourself, I would definitely get the brush too.

Have you tried this yet, or is BARESKIN something you think you might like to try soon? Let us know in the comments section below or @HappyLittleLift.
