Re: Mineral Makeup
May 19, 2006
Hello! I thought I would put in my opionion about bare essentials mineral makeup. I ordered it from the website 2 weeks ago and just got it this week and have been using it for the last few days. Pretty much my acne is cleared up from my diet changes, its just the scars that are really bothersome, so I wanted a makeup I could wear everyday without irritating my skin and so far so good! The coverage I dont find as good as my liquid makeup (but I am still learning the technique) but there is no way I could go back to putting a heavy makeup on my face everyday! My skin has definately improved in appearence just from not putting the heavy stuff on for the last little while. As for price I understand where you are coming from, I am from canada too and with shipping (I got the whole kit from the website) it came to like 80 dollars american and then when the post came I had to pay another 15 dollars canadain in taxes!!!! I am definately going to opt out of there club which is another negative about ordering from the BE website they put you in it automatically, which sends you shipments every 60 days! :eek: (Im a university student so 100$+ every 60 days is a definate no!) I was thinking of probably just reorddering from sephora the foundation which is still pretty expensive (25$) and hopefully the shipping wont be as bad since it is small. Anyways so if you are thinking about ordering this brand, I cant compare to other brands but I can tell you that it makes your skin definately look nice, coverage for me defiantley isnt as good (yet) as a liquid foundation, but after using this which dosnt irratate and make my skin worse there is no way I can go back to covering my skin with a heavy makeup and be itching (literally) to take it off all day. I am finally starting to feel better in my own skin! Good luck! :)
My regime:
Neutrogena acne free cleanser
Carleys clear and smooth soap (NO SCRUB! way too harsh for me)
Carleys day time moisterizer
BE mineral foundation
BE mineral veil

Most important!!!! (for me) diet: fruits/ pasta/wheat/bread
Intense exercise every night (the sweat clears my pores-but it has to be intense and (of course shower after)

night: (after run)
carleys clear and smooth soap in warm shower
lots of water and sleep!!!
Works for me! ;)
