At my local beauty store I was given a sample of the BareMinerals moisturizer for combination skin if I purchased over a certain amount. I usually use just the cheap Clean and Clear brand just at my local grocery or retail store, so I was interested to see how this would be different. Especially given that I love BareMinerals foundation and that is what I wear everyday. I wanted to see how this would perform, with the product set it was supposed to be used with. I must say this product really was awesome. It absorbed well, felt very light weight, didn't cause me to break out or make my skin feel oily at all. It didn't have much of a smell in my opinion and it really made my skin look healthy and glow. On the other hand I try to be practical and budget. For me I think this moisturizer is great, but is it so awesome it's worth paying four times what I was paying for my Clean and Clear moisturizer? No probably not. Therefore coming from a financial point of view, if you can afford this and already use the Bare Escentuals line and want a great moisturizer, I would totally recommend this. However if you are on a budget like me, you might want to look elsewhere.
