                      • Q:

                        HI I am wondering how does this original foundation compare to the bare minerals barepro performance wear foundation. I have been using a product similar to mineral powder foundation but wondering if I would like the bare pro better. Trying to compare. Thank you

                          Hello Gorgeous! The Original Foundation is a loose mineral formula, while the barePRO foundation is a pressed formula, both have build-able coverage based on how much you apply. It comes down to what type of a foundation formula you prefer, loose or pressed :)

                          Hello Gorgeous! It all depends on how often you use it and at what rate. It doesn't "go bad", however we would recommend replacing it after a year if it hasn't been used up.
