BareMinerals Bare Pro and Original SPF15 Mineral Foundation

BareMinerals Mineral Foundation Original Vs Bare Pro Performance Wear Foundation

I am a big fan of BareMinerals Mineral Foundation. I’ve used their Original Mineral Foundation for ages. I’ve also tried the Matte version (too chalky for me) and their now-discontinued Ready Foundation (which I didn’t like at all). When I heard about their latest launch: Bare Pro Performance Wear Powder Foundation, I really wanted to love it. Read on to see how they compare.BareMinerals Mineral Foundations

Five things I love right now: July

1. All yellow, orange and red peppers. Finally, you can now buy a packet of peppers that doesn’t have a lousy green one in it. Thank you Sainsbury’s for seeing sense! We go through so many peppers, the girls love them raw, it’s one of their favourite snacks. But we all hate the green ones.  Red, yellow and orange peppers
2. bareMinerals Complexion Rescue I love bareMinerals products. I’ve used their Original Mineral Foundation for ages and their new tinted gel moisturiser is great, either as a (very) light skin-tone-even-outer, or beneath the powder foundation. It has an SPF of 30, which is a big bonus, and even has a shade pale enough for me! It’s not the cheapest as £26 but I used my Boots points so didn’t mind.bareMinerals Complexion Rescue
3. Childs Farm Hair Detangler. We’ve tried a few over the years and this one is hands down the best. It smells great, and is 98% natural, with no parabens, SLSs, or mineral oils. Love it. We love the rest of the range too, as it has never made Ava’s eczema flare up.Childs Farm Hair Detangler

Beauty on a Budget: 1

Why is it that all your beauty products run out at once?

This week I have been spectacularly unlucky: over the past few days my day cream, primer and facial scrub have all run out, I’ve had to cut open my facial cleansing balm to get out the last few day’s worth,  my night cream is feeling suspiciously light and my foundation is running very low too. Argh!

The empty bottles of skincare past

January is the worst time for this to happen, right?
