  • bareMinerals 2-piece Powder Foundation & Brush w/SPF 15

    I am a medical esthetician & sold Bare Escentuals at a previous job. I tried several times to wear it & always ended up with oiler skin & breakouts. The original foundation contains Bismuth Oxychloride, a known irritant. Many clients complained of burning sensations, itching, increased breakouts, & generally just bad coverage. These are all reactions to the Bismuth. The Matte version does not contain Bismuth but still gives poor coverage as a foundation. I referred my oily, acneic clients to Lancome's Teint Idole (sp?). Almost all of BE's products contain Bismuth, as well as many other Mineral Makeup lines. Be sure to ALWAYS look at the ingredients & if you have sensitive, acne prone, or oily skin, do not purchase!

    BareMinerals All-Over Face Color

    "Minerals" don't make it safe

    Bare Escentuals, & most other mineral make-up lines, use bismuth oxychloride to add the "sheen". This is NOT a safe ingredient for any skin type & will make sensitive and acne-prone skin worse.
