So I gave this post a month to develop. I decided if I am truly going to write about skin care I have to be disciplined enough to put the product to the test. In addition to the challenge I recently switched my makeup line from MAC to Bare Escentuals. I think its a coming of age thing where I don’t feel the need to be bold ALL the time. Bare Escentuals gives me a covered but natural fresh look. Not too heavy, just right! Should I need my dramatic look for the red carpet I can always concede to my big ol’ makeup kit.
Okay so back to the challenge…I wash my face with bareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser after that I add the Active Cell Renewal Night Serum then follow with Purely Nourishing Moisturizer. I immediately saw a difference just by adding this product to my face. It felt extra soft and firm at the same time but not that tight feeling you get from harsh treatments, this was very gentle and practically odorless.
So this is what bare Escentuals has to say “Our intensive night serum helps restore your skin’s ability to reach its ideal renewal state. Powered by our proprietary ActiveSoil Complex–combined with a unique moisture boost technology–this formula maximizes cellular renewal and hydrates skin overnight. The result? Cells that are supercharged to protect you during the day and skin that looks firmer, healthier and younger” well I co-sign! My face looks and feels great!
So now let’s talk price bareMinerals Active Cell Renewal Night Serum is $50.00 ”Suffering Sappho!”…..I have to admit sometimes the price of beauty can be expensive. I justified it by saying on average a gym membership costs approximately $50.00 a month so I consider this a gym membership for my face, and knowing me (using only a dime sized amount) I will make this bottle last way longer than a month. So ladies its worth it! The Bare Minerals website also has an offer of free shipping on auto renewal orders to lessen the blow.
“But even though she was attractive, there was something else about her that caught his eye. She was intelligent, he could sense that right away, and confident, too, as if she were able to move through life on her own terms. To him, these were the things that really mattered. Without them, beauty was nothing.”
