    I have terrible acne. The product covers well and does not irritate my skin. It is very difficult to apply though. The powder gets very loose and goes everywhere with every usage.

      Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      This is the only foundation I use in my daily routine and I love using it. It is long lasting and I love it for my skin. I run normal/dry with dry patches on my face. I will say that you do have to use the right type of brush (a flat top complexion brush) to get the most out of it. I do prime my face before and I do think that makes a big difference for this product. It is lightweight and does not feel heavy on my face. My skin still feels like my skin, and you get the added bonus of SPF. For a higher end, the pricing is worth it however a little goes a long way versus some liquid foundations. It is also very build-able and can hold on to other face powders like blush and contour. If you don't need too much coverage I highly recommend this product. It is also great for your skin compared to others and is cruelty free!

          Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

          I was proscribed differin gel, which I noticed made my skin shining with makeup shortly after. I decided to try a powder foundation to see if this would help with keeping the shine away. I was thrilled to have found the solution. The make up feels like you are wearing nothing. It can settle in dry areas, but otherwise very good. I prefer the loose powder over the compact. I have both, which will get used up.

          Use very little product and with a brush. Goes on smoothly, do not need to rub or put it on heavy. Doesn't stay at all.

          I have used this product many years. Wait he'd to compare approx one year ago. Recently went to Ulta to purchase product again and was told there are new product numbers. Ulta employee gave me the one that would match what I previousl had and if isnf close. Too much yellow base. Product is heavy no matter how well try to blend. I exfoliate and hydrate my skin very well. Product does blend well and you're able to see it especially on forehead, area under nose anc chin. I end wiping off and trying to blend with powder. Very disappointed especially since I took the old case with the product number with me to store so there would be no guessing.

            You can have as much or as little coverage as you desire. Quick and easy application. Looks flawless even after a day at work. Covers dark spots and freckles with a few swipes of a brush.

              I've been using bareMinerals products for 5 years now. I used the loose powder and finally switched to this at the end of last year. I couldn't be happier! It feels so much lighter since I don't have to put as much on to get the coverage I need. It's in a compact which makes it great for traveling since it's not messy like the loose powder. If you're like me and like to have some color, go for a golden tone. I purchased "fair" and returned it for "golden fair" because it didn't give me the color I wanted.

                This is the second time I have purchased this product. That is unusual for me as I easily get bored and want to try something new, but this one is a keeper. I love the ease of application and it is good on my extremely sensative skin.

                    A:

                    This product offers fuller coverage (medium to full buildable coverage) than bareMinerals loose Original and Matte foundations. READY Foundation offers 12 hours of wear and SPF 20, versus Original and Matte, which offer 8 hours of wear and SPF 15. This product also features solid (pressed) minerals and a time-released hydrating formula to boost skin's hydration by 108% after 12 hours of wear.
