Review: Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Skincare

I admit it, I'm what could probably be described as a "girly girl".  I love makeup and lotions and jewelry and dressing up.  So I'm always happy to try new beauty products!  Recently I had the opportunity to review a product that I've mentioned before here on the blog (read the post here)- a new line of bareMinerals Skincare from Bare Escentuals.

For my review, I received the Naturally Luminous Skin Renewing Trio. Here's a bit about it, from its website:
This 30-day cleanser, moisturizer and eye treatment trio is the perfect introduction to bareMinerals Skincare. Our Purifying Facial Cleanser removes makeup and impurities while also hydrating and renewing skin. Our Purely Nourishing Moisturizer keeps your skin moisturized and protected so you can have younger-looking skin day after day. Our Skincare Firming Eye Treatment, completes your routine, restoring firmness and reducing puffiness around the eye area. All 3 formulas are powered by our 100% pure RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex clinically proven to deliver incredible skin-renewing benefits, including faster cell turnover, smaller-looking pores, increased luminosity and antioxidant protection.
Even though I love all things related to skincare and makeup, I do have sensitive skin that often has its own opinions about what I should be putting on it. So when I'm trying a new skincare regime, there's always a few days of nervousness. Fortunately both my skin and I both love this skincare line!  The wash leaves my face feeling nice and clean, and the moisturizer helps keep me feeling fresh and moisturized without being even slightly greasy or oily (things I have a very low tolerance for).  I also have been liking the eye cream, and appreciate that it comes with very exact instructions on how much and where to use it!

I think all three of these are great products, and I'd recommend them highly to anyone. For myself, more bareMinerals Skincare is going on my Mother's Day wish list!  If you're looking to give these products a try, this 30-day kit is a great way to see if you like them without investing a bunch of money up front. The sizes of the three products is generous, for a 30-day sampler, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to get a real feel for the products. And don't forget to check out all the other bareMinerals Skincare products- there are a bunch and they all look great!
