Marvelous Mineral Bronzers

Mineral Bronzers are fantastic for sensitive or acne prone skin. They are non-caking, talc-free and are made from natural products with little amounts of color dyes or abrasives that can irritate your skin. They absorb oil and are believed to minimize the look of fine lines on your face. Here are some of the latest and greatest mineral bronzers on the market:

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Bronzer is a super lightweight dual colored, mineral based pressed powder. Created with Vitamins A and E and infused with anti-oxidants, this bronzer actually helps protect your skin. The formula also contains Mica and Silica to help achieve a smooth, sexy, second skin feel. It's packaged in a sleek silver case with 2 compartments; 1 for the bronzer and 1 that flips up to store a mirror and a brush. Buy it here for $12.95. Available in 6 shades.

Pür Minerals Universal Marble Powder-Bronze is an amazing bronzer and skin brightener that helps to even out blotchy skin. It's full of vitamins, minerals and super soft shea butter to create light but thorough coverage. It's also oil, alcohol, talc, fragrance and chemical dye free. Pür-fect! Buy it here for $21.50

Two more, so

Therapy Systems Pressed Mineral Foundation SPF 20 is a custom formulated, triple jet milled powder made from ingredients like boron nitride and silk. Use the darkest shade (Buff) as a bronzer for exceptionally smooth all over color. Buy it here for $28. Available in 3 shades.

Lastly, a piece on mineral makeup wouldn't be complete without including something on bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation. This revolutionary magical makeup's tag line is "it's so pure you can sleep in it." After trying it, I must say, that I kind of believe them. It's made from 100% pure, crushed minerals which are free of everything. It won't clog your pores or irritate your skin.

There are thousands of testimonials online where women who suffer from skin conditions, claim that this brand has improved the overall appearance of their skin. It also contains natural sunscreens that protect your skin from the sun. This makeup has actually been recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Buy it here for $25. Available in 12 shades.

If you decided to try BM, you should get the kit that they sell at Sephora and everywhere else; you get two colors to try out, but even better, you get 3 brushes that normally cost as much as the kit. Plus, the mini jars are great for travel.

I can attest to the fact that all of the Bare Minerals claims are true. My skin breaks out at the drop of a hat, and this stuff covers really naturally without making me breakout. I love it!!!

I have the Bare Minerals & the Physician's Formula. I like them both actually. :) I think the Bare gives better coverage though. Sugars, a suggestion is try the cheaper physician's formula product first if you want to see that you like the texture and look of mineral makeup.
