Skin Care Switch- Rare Minerals


I like to call my skin delicate (which is a nice way of saying problematic). It is sensitive, prone to breakouts (even still in my late 20's!) and slightly dry all rolled into one exciting package. Other than these minor problems I love my skin. I just have to work a little harder at finding the right skincare regimen to keep it looking great.

For years I've used Dermalogica and have had stellar results. I've tried nearly every product in their line... my favorites being the daily microfoliant, the daily resurfacers and the special cleansing gel. They also have wonderful masques- my two favorite being the sebum clearing masque and the multivitamin power recovery masque.

Dermalogica's products have worked wonders for me over the years but lately I have noticed that my skin is starting to look a little dull. So I've decided to jump ship and try out another skin care line. I think it will be good for my skin- which appears to be currently suffering from boredom.

I am a huge Bare Minerals fan and am in love with their make up, so I was really excited to hear about their new line of skin care called Rare Minerals.

I've purchased the Rare Minerals cleanser, which is called Renew & Reveal. This is a soap-free, irritant free mineral cleanser (perfect for my sensitive skin) that has a similar texture to Dermalogica's microfoliant. It comes out like a powder on your hand and when activated with water, turns into a foam. I've only used it twice but I can already tell I love the delicate texture and squeaky clean, non-drying feeling I get when I use it.

The product I am most excited about using, however, is the Rare Minerals Skin Revival Treatment. This is a nighttime mineral treatment that supposedly helps to minimize pores and improve the overall condition of your skin. The powder actually comes in different tints and purportedly has skin renewing properties. I have just tried it for the very first time and must say that I like the tint it gives my skin... hopefully it wont come off on my pillow!

I'll be using these products for the next few months and will keep you updated on the condition of my skin.

The Rare Minerals Cleanser retails for about $32
The Skin Revival Treatment retails for about $60

Both products can be purchased at: www.bareescentuals.com or www.sephora.com

I did buy an entire kit of Bare Mineral make-up but still have to get it out of the box. Let us know how you get on with it. I find Imadeen tablets also wonderful for giving your skin a glow. They have them for all age groups and concerns. Jane Birkin advertises them so they have to be good, right?
