    By Taylor

    from Kansas City, Missouri

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

    Can't live without this. Great for all types of skin. The zinc oxide in it helps soothe inflammation. Also rated low (1) on the EWG data base which means the ingredients are safe and beneficial. I see a lot of reviews about it being liquid and not blending in. Give it a minute to blend in. It will change your skin in the long run.

          I really wanted to like this. I thought it would be great to have a primer and serious sunscreen in one product. However, it managed to dry out my combination skin badly in 4 days, while at the same time making it appear shiny. On the plus side, it had no fragrance and it didn't irritate my sensitive skin.

            I use this daily before applying foundation to my face. I like it because it's SPF 50, applies very smoothly, absorbs very well and doesn't leave any white residue like some sunscreens.

                        A:

                        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!

                        We'd recommend using one of our newly formulate cleaners to remove our Prep Step Lotion. Depending on your skin type you have a few options, however the Oil Obsessed Total Cleansing Oil may be the best to try! It will leave your skin feeling soft and revitalized!
