  • I use the version I got at Target, Bare Escentials. It's awesome! I highly recommend it!

    as for clearing up the acne, I recommend that she go to the SkinID website. It gives you a long questionnaire and sets you up with a customized skin care regimen.

  • It is great fast coverage and very light feeling. The only thing is make sure you pick light if your fair which is common sense but I use a neutral shade with liquid so i went to med. and it was too dark. The light was perfect.

  • I think its bare minerals it might be a different brand but they sell powder sulfur. You just apply it on the pimples and it dries them up like after 2 days of it they are all gone. As for the make up it really is the best. I love the stuff.

  • I use mineral makeup (not that specific brand) and it has really helped my skin. I have mild acne as well and I have noticed a major decrease in break outs. They are practically nonexiestent now.

  • I use BareMinerals and I love it. It's very lightweight and will help improve your skin. However, you will probably get better results if you have a good skincare regime.

  • i use to wear only mac producuts for years, then i found bare minerals about 2 years ago and its awesome and ill never use anything else. Great coverage and so light weight on your skin. Covers up and gives you a smooth look.

  • I had bare minerals for a bit. The only problem that I personally encountered was that it dried out my skin. I actually liked the cheaper L'Oreals version that you can by at the drug store. It provides the same coverage without the drying. If you want to save a little money you can start there!
