When looking for a fast Summer beauty fix, my opinion is that you can never go wrong with a great BB cream with all the multitasking it can do. A wonderful one that I have been using lately was Mineral Fusion’s Glow & Go Mineral Beauty Balm. I chose the Illuminating formula. They also have a Perfecting formula as well.
This balm targets anti-aging needs with marvelous ingredients like magnesium, zinc, and copper for cell revitalization and vitamin C, pomegranate and white tea. A mineral peptide blend specifically studied for its effectiveness to boost the growth of connective tissues, naturally stimulates collagen production is for completing the process in helping the skin regenerate. At the same time, licorice root extract, aloe leaf juice, sunflower oil and lavender help the skin feel hydrated and smooth while also protecting with natural mineral SPF 9 from titanium dioxide.
The texture of this Illuminating variety formula feels luxurious and not thin or hardly sheer when it comes out of the tube. It is a rich tinted cream that has enough beautiful makeup coverage to nearly perfect the skin of pores for the most part with a satin finish and also helps conceal some under eye darkness as it gives an underlying glow of added brightness.
Furthermore, I had it on from morning until late afternoon without it gathering in my laugh lines or making me greasy looking. Once I did take it off, my skin looked somewhat nicer, which is something that doesn’t happen with most typical makeup.
|This universal color of Mineral Fusion’s Illuminating Beauty Balm is a bit dark as you can see. It does lighten up more when you blend it in.|
The only thing that I wished Mineral Fusion would do is make more shades, instead of just two to satisfy all the shades women come in. I am on the fair side and this universal shade was somewhat dark for me without a tan. Those that are light to medium would probably find the shade better suited. If you have darker skin, then this one shade may be a bit pale on you.
Other than that, I loved this product. Check out the Illuminating Mineral Beauty Balm ($24.95) at Mineral Fusion or find this product at Whole Foods.
