What It Is: A unique oil-free, preservative-free natural mineral sunscreen in powder form for the face and body that comes in a portable, leak-proof brush.

The Breakthrough: Micronized Titanium Dioxide mineral physically shields against UVA/UVB rays to help prevent premature skin aging and sun damage. Also infused with healthy vitamins, Aloe Vera Extract and antioxidants to nourish and soothe sun-exposed skin.

Why You Need It: The weightless, breathable formula is non-greasy and won’t clog pores or cause breakouts. Increases sun protection when used under or over your bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation.

My Thoughts:

The only thing I liked about this was it was a quick way to apply sunscreen and a mineral powder. The reason I didn’t like BareMinerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen was because it was too chalky and none of the shades matched my skin tone. I also felt it eccentuated the dry patches of skin. Not only was it difficult to get the product onto the brush, but it was difficult to tell if any was being applied to my face. I won’t be repurchasing BareMinerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen.

Edit: I decided to give this another try and now I am quite fond of it. Turns out, the color I got did not work with my skintone. None of the shades worked with my skintone. Now that the medium shade works for me, it has worked wonders and has blended so well with my makeup.
