    Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

    I use it everyday to go to work. I'm happy that it looks natural on my skin and it doesn't look cake-y. I'm very glad that it not only covers my breakouts, it also doesn't cause any breakouts. Even though I'm still a newbie at putting foundation, this seems to hide that fact (that is if I don't get too carried away with adding foundation to my face).

        Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

        I originally received this product as a gift, and I had asked for it because I thought it would set my foundation and concealer, as well as make my skin look less oily without looking two-dimensional (like some "matte" foundations sometimes do). My nose tends to look shiny. When I applied this product, all of the shine on my nose was still entirely there. I love this for setting my foundation and concealer, but I will definitely have to look for something else to hide my shine.

              I actually tried to go back and find the woman, to thank her, who helped me find the medium beige in the original which the BareEssentials STORE didn't even have in stock. The store didn't seem familiar with the medium beige color! It still has a lot of color, but not as dark as tan.
              I felt that my skin was a little lighter during the winter, moreso than during the summer, so I wanted a slightly lighter color. The woman at Ulta helped me with the right color. Also, I hadn't realized that there was an original, vs. matte. The matte has been looking pastey on me lately, and the "original" blends very nicely and looks natural. A slight glow to it. I've been using BareMinerals since they came about and it's the only foundation I'll use because I hate a cream-type coating left on my skin. Ugh! Love BareMinerals.

                  When I look in the mirror from a few feet away this product looks wonderful, but if I step into look closer each poor has a little bright spot where the powder has settled into it. I have tried with and without primer, moisturizer, light touch, heavy touch...nothing seems to make a difference.

                  I think if you are young and have minimal pores this would be great.

                            bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation works beautifully for skin of all ages! The loose mineral powder actually has a surprisingly creamy, blendable consistency once applied to the skin. It won't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. To further minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, apply a primer such as bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer Original prior to foundation application to ensure a perfectly smooth canvas:

                          My skin is very very dry. Every time I apply foundation & set it with powder it seems to get very patchy & flaky. What powder/loose powder do you recommend with my type of skin.

                            This product works well for all skin types including dry skin! For dry skin, we recommend prepping the skin with moisturizer and primer prior to application to ensure a smooth canvas. Try bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30, which serves as a tinted moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen in one, to smooth, protect, and perfect skin:

                            Also, to eliminate flaky skin, exfoliate using a gentle scrub or peel a few times weekly. This should definitely help to improve your skin texture! Alternatively, you can use a super gentle exfoliating daily cleanser such as bareMinerals Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser, which is safe for twice daily use, to help get rid of flakiness:
