bareMinerals Skincare: Winners and Product Review

Over the past few weeks, I've been telling you about the new skincare line from Bare Escentuals, bareMinerals Skincare.  Today I'm here to announce the giveaway winners and share my review of two products in the bareMinerals Skincare collection.

First, the winners.  Each of these lucky ladies will receive bareMinerals Deep Cleansing Foam and Purely Nourishing Moisturizer:
Next, my review.  I've been using bareMinerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer and Firming Eye Treatment for about a week.  My first impression of the products was based on the beautiful packaging:

bareMinerals Firming Eye Treatment bareMinerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer

I've been using these in conjunction with my usual cleanser, because--unfortunately for me--the bareMinerals Deep Cleansing Foam contains an ingredient to which I'm allergic.

My observations on bareMinerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer:
  • The lotion glides on smooth and doesn't feel heavy or oily at all.
  • My skin has been noticeably softer since I've been using this product.
  • When I applied it regularly to a persistently dry patch of skin, the dryness subsided significantly.
  • The lotion is not perfumey, but I didn't care for the scent.  Note, though, that the scent doesn't linger after the lotion dries.
  • Even though my skin is sensitive, this moisturizer didn't irritate it at all.
My observations on bareMinerals Firming Eye Treatment:
  • A little goes a long way!  Just a few tiny dots are enough for the area around each eye.
  • The treatment is a thick, smooth lotion that absorbs quickly.
  • It's hard to tell after just a week, but I think this has reduced some of the puffiness under my eyes.
