Bare Minerals Haul

image

A few weeks ago I bought a 12-piece Beauty Surprise Collection from Bare Minerals (Bare Escentuals?–I never know which to call it).  It was a one-day deal on April 17, offering the 12-piece surprise valued at $177, for just $35.  I’m a sucker for a deal like that!

I haven’t tried everything in the package yet but I want to get this post up.  I know I’m always looking for info on what to expect in a mystery buy, I hope this is good info for other savvy shoppers.

I don’t know when it happened but it seems like all of a sudden, charcoal has become a highly desirable beauty ingredient.  The purported benefit of charcoal is that it attaches to and absorbs oil and dirt.  That makes it great for products like masks, cleansers and other face treatments, where the charcoal ingredient will attract the bad stuff and pull it out of your pores.

I’ve recently used four different charcoal-based products.  Read more for my reviews.
