Most Helpful Positive Review Oh Wow!
I have been a BM fan for well over a decade. And their products just keep getting better. This radiant veil is amazing! It minimizes pores and fine lines in my 30-something face, it makes my complexion look absolutely flawless, and it creates a smooth surface for applying foundation etc, meaning I use less product for a smoother finish. If the product also delivers all of its protective benefits then every woman should be using this product. Warning: there is a slight odor/perfume but I like it. I also have extremely sensitive skin and have had no problems with this product. Buy this now!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not good
I bought this product last week and I am highly disappointed with it. Following are the reasons why -
1. Not at all suitable for tan/dark skin
2. Not suitable for oily/combination skin
3. Has a very unpleasant smell
Unfortunately I can't recommend it to anyone with my skin tone and type.
Reviewed by 231 customers Clear skin spf!
Jessie from Chicago
Non comedogenic spf! Yes please!! Clear skin and protection I'm on board! It's so hard to find a good quality spf that doesn't disrupt my skin clear that I have been working very hard to maintain. Love the bottle design, easy to pump out and has a very tiny hint of illumination. I'll definitely repurchase!

I need sun protection and moisturizer. This provides both. I have been using this for several years and do not plan to change unless BE changes their products.
I like it for the sun protection, but.....
YMS1975 from Albuquerque, NM
I bought this over the summer for the sun protection. It does provide great protection from the sun, and I love that I can wear it without full makeup to go run errands and my skin looks good. However, the smell is awful! It smells like wet dog! It may just be my tube (if others disagree, I'd love to know).
I love this stuff!
Mmm92 from Atlanta
I love this product! Best non greasy spf that gives my skin a beautiful glow. Does have a scent, honestly reminds me of lemon pound cake but goes away quickly. This is now my permanent spf. I use this under my complexion rescue every single day. I will continue to purchase this.
Tess0551 from Myrtle Point, OR
This stuff is awesome, not only do you get sun protection but it goes on smoothly and makes a great primer for my foundation powder.
Holy Grail SPF
Crystal S. from Mesa, AZ
I just got this and the bareskin concealer and have used both...they're amazing! This SPF was so smooth. I put it on top of serum and moisturizer and nothing pilled up. It gave me a soft glow but I feel as if this worked fo help my oily skin in some way. I used their loose foundation on top and everything looked way smoother and radiant. I'm absolutely obsessed with both products and hope they never discontinue them!
I love this!

I try to layer as much sunscreen as I can. I apply my regular sunscreen which is the Cetaphil Pro Oil Absorbing Moisturizer with SPF 30, then I apply this follow by the Complexion Rescue Gel Cream. This does have a scent, I would describe it as kind of citrusy or fruity. It does go away. It gives my skin a little glow and makes my skin look a little better. On days when I need more full coverage I use this product and then the Barepro Pressed Powder foundation. I really like those together, but I basically wear this everyday even if I don't wear any makeup. I will continue to purchase this when I run out. I feel like this product gets overlooked but it's definitely worth it. I love this product.
Looks good for first couple of hours
OldJoke from Colorado
I'm medium olive skinned, 40ish and not cute with creases getting longer and deeper by the day. I tried this free sample as a sort of foundation/sunscreen for wearing while spending time outside. It works well enough as a sunscreen and has a slight white tint to it ("soft radiance") that has to be rubbed in well. Like, don't try to put this on in the dark or without a mirror. But it looked good enough and the white tint worked to brighten my skin and blur some imperfections. Let's talk about the smell though. It was immediately pleasant with a light citrusy scent. Within 10 minutes, the citrus faded and it smelled like ammonia. It wasn't strong, but it was solid. It stayed with me until I went outside in the breeze, where I forgot about it. Still looked good enough for Zoom after a non-sweaty hour outside and only felt a teensy bit tacky. A few hours after that it is minimally visible except in the wrinkle creases, where it is a little more white from settling in. I didn't write this review for money, but I would if anyone wants to pay me.
Love this as an SPF and primer
Broget from WA, USA
I'm using this on my already-mature skin to protect it from excess damage and it's been lovely. I am very fair skinned and on me, applied liberally and rubbed in thoroughly, it leaves no white reside! This product alone fills in the large pores on my nose (I follow with the BM tinted moisturizer most days) which is great for true no-makeup days. This is a must-have in my daily routine.
Love this product
wfggm from NYC
I bought this 2 months ago and I love how my skin is behaving so far. It gives me such a nice fresh glow and makes my skin feel clean and fresh.
Leaves my skin smooth
Lizz from Los Angeles, CA
I love this product. It leaves my skin smooth. I use it as a primer and a bonus is the spf.
Not for large pores
Xenalove from Nc
This might work for younger skin but for older women not so good settled in my pores and was very noticeable
WOW Best Sunscreen Literally EVER
Sophia from CA
I usually can't stand to wear any sunscreen kinds because it is just slimy and gross, but this sunscreen is literally the best thing ever. Completely worth the price tag! I can't feel it AT ALL which has never happened for me with a sunscreen, and it smells great. However, if you are sensitive to fragrance this might not be for you because it has a lot of essential oil fragrance in it.
I look airbrushed!
alexg_nyc from new york
I bought this product because I wanted the blue light protection. I'm in front of my phone and computer all day long and was worried about the damage that was doing to my skin. The Radiant Protective Veil is giving my skin the protection it needs and also making my skin look flawless. It truly looks airbrushed after I put this stuff on! This is all I need to look great on my Zoom calls. There is the slightest bit of a white cast but it's hardly noticeable, especially if you put makeup on over it.
Wish I had ordered sooner!
mgee14 from O Fallon, MO
I passed this up when it first came out, after trying a tester at the store. I'm not sure if the tester was bad, but it was very dry and cakey, so I passed. I decided to give it a try recently and absolutely love it! I put it on under my makeup and it controls the oil in my t-zone for hours. I don't use much, and I can see where other reviewers are coming from when they say it can be drying and/or cause a white cast on the skin, but I just use a little bit and it agrees with the oily areas on my face.
Excellent for every day wear
Ravensgirl from Baltimore Md
I usually think that bare minerals is for a younger crowd than my 60 years but I have found many products here that work well for my skin. I love this product as it makes my bare skin look fresh and unblemished. It has a slight coverage to it that is matte and perfect for every day when you don't want to use foundation. It is great under masks has the foundations seem to wear off onto the masks.
I use every day, great...
Jean Darien from Simpsonville, SC
I use every day, great product!
Bare minerals is the only makeup and skin care product l use.
Gross smell (from both 50ml tubes I ordered)
AAll from NY
I was very excited for this product: mineral SPF that provides all the protection my skin needs (pollution, blue light and UV). I've been searching for similar products in the market and had high expectations. At first glance, the finish is quite nice (not too pearly or sparkly in a super young kind of way) and it glides on easily for a mineral SPF. What really immediately threw me off though was the gross smell. I cannot put my finger on it but it's a mix of wet dog and Durian fruit. I.e. it's pretty nauseating and not at all what I would expect from a moisturizing SPF. The smell is truly unacceptable and I am surprised I have not seen any other recent comments about it. I have never experienced this with a product so I do not believe this is a symptom of my skin reacting with the formulation.
@Bare Minerals, are there any fragrances in here? What could be attributing to this off-putting scent?
I will keep using the products because I was irresponsible enough to order two of them without first trying them out. I hate putting product to waste so at least I am comforted by the fact that this is protecting my skin...
Does not dry down, leaves a white cast
Veka from Arizona
I wanted to love this because I'm a big BareMinerals make-up fan however.... this doesn't go on easily, doesn't dry down once applied and leaves a very noticeable white cast. The BM mineral powder (original) doesn't apply well over top of this either. A total fail in my book. I own other sunscreens and primers that are 100% better than this one.
Great alone or mixed with foundation!
Sarah W from Gainesville, FL
I don't wear this product every day, but like the Complexion Rescue tinted moisturizer, a little goes a long way! I use this on weekends and my days off for sunscreen when I don't feel like wearing my Complexion Rescue tinted moisturizer (just one pump covers my whole face). On days that I do wear makeup, I have started mixing about half a pump of this product with my tinted moisturizer, and the result is a perfect sheer to light coverage! I wear 2 different shades of tinted moisturizer, depending on how much I've been in the sun, and this application works best for me when I use my darker shade (although I have used my lighter shade as well).
Great combo of moisture and protection
amandacapp from Philadelphia, PA
This goes on a bit like sunscreen - but it also provides moisture to my skin! I wear it under everything, whether I'm doing a full face, tinted moisturizer, or going au naturale, this is always on my face.
Bianchi51 from Antonito, CO
After trying a sample received in my auto- shipment, I am hooked! Love the sun protection and the soft glow it leaves on your skin. I use this daily under my Complexion Rescue tinted moisture.
Hate it from Sterling VA
I wanted to try this product since it had so many good reviews. I have dry skin and was hoping this would make me look more dewy. It does nothing for my skin other than make me look pasty white. Goes on like sunscreen, is hard to spread, and sits on top of the skin. Ugh
I would give it a ten if I could!
RMAP from Boca Raton
So I asked the young salesgirl in Macy's what she had under her foundation to make her skin so flawless. She answered that it was Complexion Rescue. My sister laughed at me and said, "of course her skin looks flawless... she is 30 years younger than you!" Well, undeterred, I bought it anyway. I love this product! I have tried tons of primers... but nothing make my skin as smooth and flawless as this. I put it on top of my usual skincare (not sure if that is how it is intended to be used, but I swear by it!) and follow with my foundation....
Love this product!
tespo1 from undisclosed
I use this under Barepro powder and it is perfection! I have combination 55 year old skin and it gives a smooth base to the powder. They blend together perfectly and last all day! It doesn't feel heavy or oily. Please never discontinue either item!
