New bareMinerals Complexion Rescue


So it’s summer, and it’s hot, and I’ve been outside walking a lot. That rhymed, which is weird, but I’m going with it.

I went down the shore this weekend for the first time (it was pretty exciting) to see family and my long-lost friend, the ocean. The boardwalk at Seaside showed me how kind of necessary boardwalks are (Florida, get on it) and if you follow me on Insta, then you know I had some pretty legit pizza while I was there. 

This also explains why this post wasn’t up yesterday. (Oops). Apparently everyone was trying to get back to the city at 11 pm last night. It was rough, we were tired. Work the next morning was fun.

While down the shore, with a slightly dry/burnt face and in some intense heat, I realized that my usual powder-foundation wasn’t working for me anymore. My cousin just told me that she liked the new bareMinerals Complexion Rescue (and she left me unsupervised for entirely too long in Ulta) so I bought it—no surprise. I also bought their Smoothing Face Brush to apply it with and I surprisingly like applying liquid make up with a brush. 

It has the perks of a BB cream, CC cream, and tinted moisturizer. Covers just enough to give you a dewy and non-caked-on look. And it has SPF. (Nothing I have ever has SPF so I feel like this is a groundbreaking improvement).

I absolutely love it. I don’t feel like my face has make up caked on it. I also didn’t feel super gross while wearing it in the heat on my walk from the train. I call that a win.

On the topic of wins, I also had basically the best breakfast ever at The Sandbox Cafe. Sizzling pancakes may be their greatest invention ever. Mine had chocolate chips, bananas, and their usual cream cheese baked into it. So. Good. 

P.S. I also just watched Boyhood and it was kind of weird. Have you watched it? We should probably talk about it.


  1. that breakfast looks delicious, oh my God! I am definitely going to look into this product because I am constantly walking too and by the time I get anywhere I want to go my makeup is usually all gone!Thanks for the awesome review! x, kenz

  2. It's kind of light coverage, but it's super moisturizing and it feels really nice on your face. Let me know if you try it!
