bare minerals


I ditched my year(s) old drugstore makeup and bought a bunch of Bare Minerals this weekend. I've used some of their eyeshadow before but never the whole system. Loved the trial the chic did at the store - but a little weary of trying it myself.
I was a little motivated when I found this website where you can look up products and their toxic levels...and the moisturizer I've used for 9 years? 7 out of 10 on the toxic level. Pretty awesome right? Time to get something clean.

Have you tried Bare Minerals before? Thoughts? Advice?

I tried it years ago when it first came out. I have super oily T Zone and I found that for some reason it did not help my oily ness, but some people say it did wonder's, I guess it was just my skin.

Been using this stuff for over 2 years. I absolutely love it. I could never ever ever got back to the pastey wet stuff I used to dump all over my face. The best part is, in the summer, your make up doesn't melt off and slide off your face like hot butter.

I am intrigued by Bare Minerals-- my mom has used some of their products and liked them a lot.

I have used this for a few years now and love it... It doesn't make me break out in acne... although it is VERY messy. Stuff is all over the place!

I have used BM for about 4 years and it occasionally causes cycstic acne due to the main ingredient - bismuth oxychloride which contains lead
