    Comments about BareMinerals Prep Step Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Shield Daily Prep Lotion:

    I'm so happy to have found this bareMinerals sunscreen. I've tried several brands of mineral sunscreens, both high-end and drug store, and this has become my new favorite. It's spf 50 with a high percentage of zinc, but it rubs in really easily and doesn't turn my face white. I wear it under my bareMinerals complexion rescue tinted moisturizer (spf 30). They wear well together, and they don't irritate my sensitive skin.

    This works just like the lady at the Bare Minerals counter said, just the right amount of moisturization. My face is oily and I need non-petroleum based products. I am using it with my new BM foundation and it works together beautifully My face looks great even at the end of the day, with no touch ups!

      It has a tiny bit of tint which takes away that sunblock hue that similar products leave behind.

        This is a moisturizer/primer/sunscreen in one bottle . Leaves skin soft. It's greasy at first so I let it sink in. The only draw back is small bottle for price. What I like is it's rated high for non toxicity. Been using since it first came out.

              Love this product! It's difficult to find a physical SPFs that doesn't leave your skin tacky and completely white. This one doesn't. The slight whiteness dissipates after you put on your foundation. Part of it being a physical and not a chemical SPF, ladies. Love the protections and the feel of a smooth primer. Best part it doesn't break me out! Enjoy putting it on every morning to protect me from hyperpigmentation and effects of the sun.

                      This product can certainly be worn without foundation, alone, but please note that it provides no coverage. Micro-encapsulated pigments blend with your skin tone and dry to an invisible finish so you don't see white. It is formulated without oils, parabens or fragrance, so it's a smart choice for those with sensitive skin!
