New! BareMinerals Bareskin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation #GoBare

bs by bm

It’s no secret I am a huge BareMinerals fan, but their newest launch? Well it’s truly amazing! I was so excited to receive a sample of the new BareMinerals Bareskin Foundation. It’s hands down the best skincare product I have tried in years. You have to try it to believe it.

The first thing I noticed was how light this foundation is, its an ultra thin serum almost watery. It has only 18 ingredients no binders, fillers, water nothing but magic. It takes  just  a few drops on the brush then apply in circular motions. I usually use my fingers to apply all my makeup. I am messy and it seems to make it easier. But the special  Skin Perfecting Brush really is a must have. It has an indent in the middle to put your foundation drops. The brush is uber soft and makes application a breeze. The foundation is so light its hard to tell you are even applying anything, but the results show it doesn’t take a heavy foundation to get a flawless canvas.

And the foundation itself is  fantastic. Its  light and yet it completely covers imperfections, brightens my face, hides my pores and  makes it look like I have way better skin than I actually do. As you can see from the before and after above it gives my skin a perfected airbrushed look. And it does all that without looking like I am wearing makeup. My new must have foundation!

If you still have any doubts about how amazing this is, check out a picture I have from a hair product review yesterday. I was wearing BareSkin and I was shocked how great my skin looked, there is no filter that is all BareSkin magic. You can see the line on my neck where is goes from perfected skin to my natural skin. BareMinerals I am going to need you to make this into a body cream as well!

Ultimate Moisture with Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Mask

20140513_102731

My hair has been a bit dull and sad lately. Then I noticed this tub of Monoi Repairing Mask I needed to review still.  I scooped up a dollop and worked through my hair concentrating on the ends. Then I twisted my hair under a shower cap and hopped in a bubble bath.  After a nice 30 minute soak I rinsed my hair and was amazed how smooth it felt, it was untangling just as I rinsed the product out. I let my hair air dry and it is the softest it has been in a very long time. And not only it is soft and smooth but it has bounce again, the mask was able to deep condition my curls without weighing them down. The mask smells absolutely beautiful and leaves my hair smelling amazing.

If you are searching for a hair mask, look no further. This is one of my all time favorites and I only need a small amount to condition all my hair. You might chuckle when you read online reviews about this mask saying “It’s as if Jesus made it himself” but trust me once you try it, you will understand!
