BareMinerals is one of my favourite make up brands - I featured the original mineral cosmetics brand on my blog back in 2010 and have used many products over the years from the mattifying mineral veil finishing powders (swirl, tap and buff) and silky foundation primers to the creamy eyeliner pencils and intense eyeshadow palettes, so I was excited to try out the new skincare range. The Skinsorials range launched this summer featuring nine products promising healthy, glowing skin.

The complexion-obsessed BareMinerals team studied the Japanese island Okinawa (where the oldest ladies in the world live) and discovered a resilient, nutrient-rich herb in the coastal soil which is loaded with an even higher mineral and vitamin count than superfoods such as kale and spinach.  Our skin naturally loses minerals as we age, so the Skinsorials range is designed to nourish and replenish to give skin a healthy, youthful glow.  The products are developed for a three-part beauty ritual for different skin types: four cleansers, a powerful serum and four moisturisers all made with naturally-derived, effective ingredients.  First step: purify.  I've been using the lightweight Total Cleansing Oil to remove my make up which is made with mineral-rich sea salts, bilberry oil, borage oil, cucumber oil and sunflower oil.  For a deeper clean, the Transforming Purifying Cleanser is a thick clay-to-cream facial cleanser featuring Brazilian Red Clay to draw out impurities, papaya, bamboo extract and sea salts.  Next step: empower.  The Vital Power Infusion is a serum developed to enhance a healthy glow, combining Okinawa's "long life herb" extract with California poppy and ginger.  A booster shot to enhance skin's resilience is just what the doctor ordered as the seasons are turning - I'll be buying it once this runs out.  Onto the final stage: moisturise.  I love the unique texture of the Oil-Free Gel Cream, which softens, smooths and sinks in straightaway, featuring peptides, ceramides and algae extracts.  Prepare to be hooked...
