    The only issue I have with this product is sometimes it bubbles out of the tip - like air is pushing it out - wish they would perfect the bottle.

                  Comments about BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

                  I am allergic to silicone and am hearing other people are also developing reactions to this ingredient as well. My skin used to be oily but am getting drier with age so now am looking for a more hydrating foundation. And have found this one to be the best in hydrating and great coverage for my rosacea as well. I feel that silicone is a cheap filler ingrediant in many products that are passed off as 'oil free' and noncomedigenic. Dont be fooled by this!! Its nothing more that refined oil and gives products that smooth viscosity. But sadly we women are putting out hundreds of dollars in our creams and serums as well and is listed as the first ingredient in most skin care products. There are so many alternatives but most brands still use it and charge premium prices. I am impressed with bareskin formula because it goes on so so smoothly and breathable without use of silicone!! So BRAVO TO YOU BARE MINERALS!! Also if you want more coverage or longer lasting simply apply another quick coat. I have converted my clients that were using IT foundation to this....great coverage but far less masky looking....hope this helps

                  This product is very drying. Takes a while to blend into skin. Highlights small facial lines. Use of this product left me with hives and itching all over my face. Bare Minerals products just are not what they used to be. Will be changing brands!

                        The BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 would be suitable for oily skin, however we suggest using a foundation primer to help with the appearance of oil in addition to a setting veil or powder. A better suggestion may be the barePRO pressed powder foundation if you are looking for the same coverage. Our Matte foundation also helps with oil in addition to containing SPF.

                      I have been using and do like Bare Skin Pro, Silk 14. But I'm wondering if the Serum would be better than a powder for my age, 89. If so, what color and should I go a shade darker of either now that summer is approaching and my skin tans a little?
                      (I've heard that a liquid is better for aging skin. I am neither dry nor oily)

                      I have a very oily t-zone and acne prone skin...would this product be good without giving me breakouts? I use a powder foundation usually, but it sometimes causes my skin to flake up around my mouth and cheeks...not pretty...hoping to find a liquid foundation that won't cause breakouts that is breathable.

                        Hello,

                        We recommend the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue as an alternative. We also recommend consulting with a physician with the listed ingredients of both foundations if you are acne prone as trying any new foundation (any brand) may cause acne prone skin to have a reaction during your initial trial.

                        Hello Amber,

                        We recommend trying shade Bare Linen 03 in the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. We suggest a Light shade with a neutral undertone based on the color you are currently using. We also suggest using our shade finder: http://www.ulta.com/bareskin/.

                        Hello Cheryl,

                        We recommend using shade Bare Caramel 14 in the BareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. If you lean towards a neutral to golden undertone, try Bare Tan 13 as Bare Caramel is intended for golden undertones.
