So many different skin types exist – oily, dry, combination, mature, sensitive – the list goes on!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could find one foundation to cover all skin needs and types?

After much research, I believe I’ve found that holy grail product.

It is Bare Minerals Original Foundation.

It is packaged in a jar, filled with loose powder.

To apply foundation, you must use a powder brush to swirl inside the jar in order to pick up product.

This mineral foundation is gentle for sensitive skin and does contain SPF 15 (would love for this figure to be higher, but kudos to Bare Minerals for including sunscreen at all!). What I love about it is that it always looks smooth and flawless. You can also dial up coverage by applying more powder, and it will never look cakey (unlike other foundations). As you can see above, it produces an airbrushed effect in pictures. It is not drying and does not emphasize fine lines (making it ideal for mature skin). It also controls oil – amazingly! This foundation has found the sweet spot for skin – a magical combination!

The one downside is the application. It does tend to make a mess on your vanity, as the loose powder does scatter. If they could package this in a compact, it would be a miracle foundation indeed!

Nevertheless, the final product is impossible to deny! Results speak for themselves!
