|Rare Minerals By Bare Escentuals||
Rare Minerals by Bare Escentuals are a line of makeup products that are claimed to benefit the skin while concealing wrinkles at the same time. The entire Rare Minerals by Bare Escentuals product line features the patent pending, “100% pure” RareMinerals Complex as a key active ingredient. Apparently, this complex has been developed by Bare Escentuals and is exclusively available only in their products. The full Rare Minerals by Bare Escentuals line includes RareMinerals Purely Nourishing, Rare Minerals Moisture Burst, RareMinerals Skin Revive Treatment, RareMinerals Blemish Therapy and RareMinerals Renew & Reveal.
Some details are given for each Rare Minerals by Bare Escentuals product individually, but little is revealed about the line as a whole, like what might distinguish it form other brands or what the unifying features for these products might be. However, there are helpful FAQ cards for each product once you click on “learn more.” There are also recommendations for other RareMinerals products that a consumer interested in one product might be interested in.
In addition to buying the Rare Minerals BareEscentuals products individually, consumers are also given the option of buying the BareMinerals Get Started kit for $59.98. Purchasing the Starter kit also gets you a free how-to DVD when ordering from the official website. Purchased individually, the RareMinerals by Bare Escentuals products seem to retail on average between $18-$40 each. Although Bare Escentuals does provide info like “What It Is” and “Why You Need It” for all of their RareMinerals products, they do not seem to give a complete ingredient list on the official product website.
- Many of the Rare Minerals by Bare Escentuals products claim to be paraben free.
- Products are available at a discount in a trial-size “get started” kit.
- Other discounts seem to be available via the official website at different times.
- This is really more of a cover up than a long-term wrinkle solution.
- Could not find full lists of ingredients for any Rare Minerals by Bare Escentuals products.
- After purchasing the “starter kit”, maintaining a full product regiment could become pricey.
- With so many Rare Minerals by BareEscentuals products to choose from, it can be difficult to know what might work for you.
The Bottom Line
Rare Minerals by BareEscentuals is a line of mineral-based makeup products that claim to help with skin care while also covering up unsightly wrinkles and blemishes. Rare Minerals by Bare Escentuals products could be a good choice if you’re in the market for a concealer or moisturizer, but this doesn’t look like a one-stop wrinkle fighting solution to us. We would recommend finding a dedicated wrinkle treatment that focuses on collagen production, than supplementing it with additional products if the need arises.
