When I apply makeup, I do not want to look as if I am wearing a mask. I do not want to clog my pores, and I do not want to be applying chemicals to my skin, that when absorbed into my system, may lead to health problems down the line. I think most women will agree, makeup is meant to enhance our features, not leave us with a heavy made-up look.
Bare Escentuals CEO Leslie Blodgett began her company 31 years ago, with the goal of offering makeup made with 100 percent pure crushed minerals from the earth, free of preservatives, talc, oil, fragrance and other potential skin irritants. A makeup that was feather light, allowing for a finished radiant natural look. In 2001, the company teamed up with md formulations to offer anti-aging, glycolic acid skin care.
At one time, the bareMinerals cosmetic line was only available through San Francisco Bay Area boutiques. Now, the products are available online. For a time, you can purchase the Bare Escentuals Get Started Kit ( a $181.00 dollar value) at a special price of $60.00 dollars. Included in the kit is a DVD of how-to beauty tips.
According to the product description, “Made of pure crushed minerals from the earth, bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation looks like a powder, feels like a cream, and buffs on like silk, giving the skin a natural luminosity. It’s makeup so pure you can sleep in it. This complete kit includes all the basic products to achieve radiant skin.”
