Best Foundation: glo-minerals Pressed Base

The first time that I ever used gloMinerals Pressed Base foundation was when I was 16 years old, and it’s a makeup product that has stayed in my bag throughout the years! It has surpassed the way any other foundation looks and feels on my skin. So, to do a spotlight on this awesome product is an obvious choice!

This is coming from a girl who has worked with other mineral makeup lines, has tried it all, and knows the FACTS about why the gloMinerals foundation is so far beyond what the others can do. When I say facts, I am referring to the ones right there listed on the box, written in black and white. INGREDIENTS MATTER! There are a few common ingredients in some of the most well known mineral makeup lines that contain skin irritants such as bismuth and talc. The most common reactions to these cheap filler ingredients are itchiness and dry flaking skin. GloMinerals stays true to the top of the line ingredients, and DOES NOT contain these irritants or any perfumes. Instead their goal is to provide unsurpassed coverage that nourishes, corrects and protects skin.

The Pressed Base is an award winning mineral foundation, and voted New Beauty magazine’s Beauty Choice Award multiple times. With top of the line ingredients, this foundation provides a smooth and build-able, sheer to full coverage. It is also a noncomedogenic product, meaning it does not clog the pores. The minerals are fine, triple milled, and are FULL of antioxidants. The finish is a semi-matte finish that disguises pores better than most “powder” foundations. Although any skin type can wear this, I would say it is a best fit for acne prone skin because it is so light, covers perfectly, and reduces redness immediately! Their makeup also contains a broad spectrum sun protection, equivalent to an SPF 15.

I use this on my clients after an eyebrow wax to calm the skin down and cover redness! It works wonders, and some have even said that it’s the reason they don’t break out after a brow wax!

How to Apply

Apply to clean, moisturized skin in small, circular motions to achieve perfectly even coverage. Since the coverage is buildable, start with a small amount, and layer if more is needed. A setting spray can be used to achieve a dewey look, my favorite is Moist by gloMinerals. Voila! Perfect skin…check!

I have not been paid to write this review. The thoughts are my own personal thoughts, and the facts are, well…just facts. However, I have been sent products for review, but I already knew that they were awesome 😉
