Introducing bareMinerals Complexion Rescue

Once in a while a makeup product comes along that makes you want to sing and dance and clap your hands, a product so good you wonder how on earth you ever got by before hand. Cue Complexion Rescue, £26; bareMinerals latest does-it-all, skin saving hybrid, a real life Photoshop for the skin that combines all the benefits of a bb, cc and tinted moisturizer – ladies, welcome to your new best friend.

What makes this so frickin great is that; unlike any other tinted moisturizer this gel-cream is formulated without oils or silicone and contains mineral-infused water. In other words it is seriously hydrating – you know how models always seem to have that naturally radiant, dewy healthy glow, the kind that looks like they’ve just had a facial? Yep, this is it.

The key to flawless skin is all in the moisture, which is why this combo works wonders. A study found that after using Complexion Rescue for only one week there was a 215% increase in skin hydration – sounds pretty good to us. The ultra light formula glides on and somehow does the impossible: hides imperfections and evens skin tone like a magical veil, but leaves you looking like you’re not wearing any make up at all (maybe she’s born with it?).

At last a product that enhances skin instead of masking it – hurrah! It’s available in 10 sheer shades, so you’ll be sure to find your perfect match. Apply using your fingers, or buff into your skin using bareMinerals new Dual Fiber Smoothing Face Brush for a flawless, airbrushed finish.

Unfortunately you are going to have to wait for it, as it hits stores in April, but you can join the waiting list here to be first in line. Trust us, it’s the only thing you’ll want to be putting on your skin this spring!
