The best skincare marries nature with what we know works scientifically. bareMinerals SKINLONGEVITY is such a prime example of that. The basis for the line is Long Life Herb, a revered plant in Okanowa, home to the worlds oldest population. Long Life Herb has a higher mineral content than kale or spinach, and thrives in rough terrain. It’s said in Japan that each time you eat it, you extend your life by a day. Its rich vitamin and mineral content also benefit your skin in a powerful way. bareMinerals sent the line over a while ago and here’s what I found.
SKINLONGEVITY has that moisture-without-weight thing perfected. VITAL POWER SLEEPING GEL CREAM feels like literal silk on your skin, dissolving in seconds and leaving behind a slight slip of softness. It contains hyaluronic acid, minerals, and Long Life Herb🌿. It’s the perfect weight for nighttime when you want to give your skin a big drink of water. I patch tested this one on smaller areas of my face before committing to the whole thing since my skin is reactive and things often break me out, but I had zero reaction to this (or the rest of the line) thankfully. I liked how bouncy and clean it felt without any sticky after feel. It helps skin to wake up refreshed and revitalized. It’s a med-weight cream so I added a serum underneath for some additional hydration, but if you want your skin to feel like there’s nothing on it at all- just use this alone.
VITAL POWER INFUSION is a literal dose of radiance in a super light serum. that quickly dissolves and isn’t an oil. ing behind just a light touch of softness giving you a head start in hydration. Long Life Herb Extract, California Poppy (antioxidant), and Ginger to brighten give your skin nutrients, hydration, and a boost of radiance. While B3 offers too many benefits to the skin than I can mention. It’s an all-in-one solution for those looking for better, brighter skin.
Their eye cream is incredible. Like, epic. It has the gel-creme consistency that’s signature to the line with a bouncy feel that I use with my jade roller every morning to combat puffiness and add some moisture so my concealer doesn’t look dry or cakey. I use a thick layer of it at night and it has made the dryness around my eyes so much better.
Their smart, chemical-free SPF 30 gives the right amount of moisture to my thirsty morning skin. It has Long Life Herb along with Green Coffee Bean extract to improve micro circulation and make skin look more awake. The consistency is slightly thicker than a typical lotion and it works as well as a primer under makeup. Non-sticky and emollient. Use a Jade Roller over it to help de-puff and accentuate contours in the morning (I do my eyes and face), and also to help work the moisture into the skin.
