Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Cannot live without
This is genius! I honestly cannot see myself without this tinted cream. I can wear it alone and still feel absolutely confident and I can also wear under my original foundation when I want full coverage. I absolutely recommend this to everyone!
Rated 5 out of 5 by bmgirl Love. No silicones and new shades!
First of all, I want to say THANK YOU for adding the shade 1.5 Birch. I had been using Vanilla, but it was a bit too dark and yellow, it only really works for me in the summer. Opal was too light and more pink. I just picked up Birch yesterday from Ulta and it is PERFECT for Fairly Light people with neutral undertones.
This is a sheer foundation that is basically a BB Cream. Minimal coverage, applies well with a BeautyBlender. I use concealer for my under eyes and over a couple acne scars and it blends well with that too. If you have a lot you want to cover up, this won't work for you.
The ingredients in this are pretty good too! No silicones, no talc that clog pores. SPF 30 is great for the summer. I use BM's new Transcluent/Highlight Duo to set and highlight.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amaf77 Best daily tinted sun protection
This product is perfect for all types of skin. I use it alone as a foundation for a natural daytime look with just a hint of high dive bronzer and mascara....I'm 57 years old and this product makes me look great in just five minutes. It has it all sun protection, moisturizing,
And a great polished look.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lana One of my favorite products
I have always had dry and pasty skin so I decided to try this product and it was the best decision I ever made! My skin is a lot smoother now and has a little glow that its never had before. It's great for a quick on the go hydration and never makes my skin look greasy or oily.

I love BE, and have been using their products for years. Lately been noticing some dryness on my cheeks so gave the gel a try as suggested in store. I like the coverage, it's light, but for days when I'd normally go without because of time, I LOVE this product. However... nose and chin has broken out. I normally have combo skin and have VERY few breakouts. I've had more after using this for a month than in the previous 18 months combined. I've also seen an increased number of blackheads. I'm going to stick with it and see if I can adjust, but I'm not thrilled that I was offered this in store because of the light cheek dryness they saw.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfect!!!!!!
I LOVE this!!! Where do I begin? I am almost 57 years young and have combination skin. I have never worn foundation all over my face until I tried Bare Minerals as I didn't like the way foundation make up felt.
This is my favorite B.M. foundation. It spreads on so easily, leaves my face looking dewey and young. It leaves my skin feeling very moisturized without feeling oily. There are so many shade selections that I found the perfect match! I can't say enough good about this!
If your looking for heavy coverage, this isn't for you. It offers more of a sheer coverage with a super glow!
Rated 5 out of 5 by miraclsm Excellent product for combination skin types
I tend to have a very oily forehead but cheeks so dry that my skin is flakey. I've been using complexion rescue gel cream for about a week and so far I really enjoy it. It looks very natural on the skin and I notice my forehead being less oily throughout the day. I also think it lasts all day while maintaining the "freshly applied" look. I apply it after I cleanse and moisturize with regular SPF moisturizer in the morning and add a bareminerals powder foundation over top.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Jehan Need more colors for dark skin
When I initially purchased the tinted moisturizer I bought it in Terra 8.5. The person that color matched me said the next color up would be too orange. I returned it the next week and purchased Chestnut 9. While Chestnut 9 isn't my perfect color I'd rather be a little darker than use a product that is too light and makes me look ashy. It does bother me that there are only 3 colors for people with dark skin, and 13 colors for people with light skin. There for sure needs to be at least a color that is an in-between of terra 8.5 and chestnut 9. Other than the color match the product is great. I live in Austin, TX and it is very humid here, especially in the summer. The less makeup I can wear the better. I use a little perfecting vail to finish the look. I do like how light it feels on the skin, unlike a foundation would feel. It's also billable so you can add more if you need more coverage. Personally I just do one layer and then a small amount of concealer if needed. All in all, I really hope they come out with more colors for people with dark skin. We come in all different shades of brown, not just 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LucyMom Works for me!
I love this product. I have medium skin tone (I purchased the Natural) this is my second tube of this stuff so you can say I am a fan. I went to the store to get the correct shade match. It is such a good match I put this on in the morning in a matter of minutes. I use the brush to apply and get great coverage. I get compliments on my skin, and even my dermatologist asked me what makeup I was using! I love the dewy look I get from this as I have never been fond of the matte look on my particular skin tone, I feel like it ages me.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bridge Dewy, moisturizing, sheer coverage
I've been using this in Vanilla 02 and it was too yellow for my fair skin, but the Opal 01 was way too light and made me look ghostly. I have fair skin, but tan easily..The Birch 1.5 color is literally perfect for me. Hint of color, but no visible yellowness. I love the color, am very glad it was created for those who 01 and 02 don't work for! I hope it is continued. I like this product because I tend to have dry skin and am using tretinoin as well, which dries out my skin even more. Not sure how someone would do if they had oily skin, but a finishing powder would be helpful to reduce shine.This is a sheer coverage, and I do have to use concealer for post blemish marks..so it won't cover those, but my red spots are fading and aren't too serious. I like how this foundation allows my skin to be, well my skin, but still provides coverage to help me out overall.
