bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream - Review

I love me a good tinted moisturiser. They have the nicest texture when it comes to base products. I hate thick gloopy formulas sitting on my skin so I find them perfect all year round. Complexion rescue is very popular in the blogger sphere and for good reason. I've had it for a couple of months now and I'm hooked. If you're looking for something light, breathable and glowy, look no further. 
The product comes in a hand sized squeezy tube with a twist cap.
Great for travel.
Price - £27 for 35ml
Texture - Gel-cream
Finish - Glowy, even skin
Shade - Opal 01

What they say
A multi-tasking genius that combines skincare benefits and naturally radiant coverage in one. 

Key claims
215% increase in skin hydration after one week
Natural coverage
Radiant finish
Formulated with marine botanicals, coconut and glycerin
SPF 30 PA+++

What is it
This is a beautiful tinted moisturiser that offers a light-medium coverage with a hydrated, natural finish. The texture blends effortlessly into the skin forgiving any dry patches or imperfections. Suitable for all skin types.

How I use it
I start with a 20p size amount and blend it into the skin using my fingers or miracle complexion sponge. I find brushes take up to much of the product. It instantly adds moisture and hydration to the skin and has a slight cooling effect. The finish is very natural but still glowy and radiant. I still need concealer under my eyes, around the nose and on any blemishes but my skin tone is more even. I set my face with translucent powder as I get shiny and it doesn't move all day. Definitely a nice light option on those 'bad skin' days. 

Pros
- Smooth texture
- Cooling effect
- Good shade range
- Travel friendly
- SPF protection
- A little goes a long way
- Natural finish

Cons
- Expensive for what it is

Cheaper alternative
Sleek Makeup BB Cream

Summary
I love this tinted moisturiser and I think it will work for pretty much everyone. It's become my go-to on those days where I need to fix my face but only have 10 minutes to do it. Give it a swatch in store, you won't regret it.

Thank you for reading!
