I love presentation and the girly girl in me was beyond impressed with how my Mineral Hygienics Cosmetics arrived. I love the adorable baby pink drawstring bag and all the crinkled pink and black paper streamers. I really love how it is packaged as it's already perfect to order as a gift and have it sent directly to the recipient. For a company to put so much effort into the appearance tells you a lot about how a company feels about their customers.
I was elated with the amount of product that I received. It included 3 Sheer Foundations in Light, Medium Light and Medium. I received Bronzer in Cool Kiss and a Finishing Powder in Silk Translucent. Inside each of these is a plastic sifter divider (see photo below) which aides in helping you to get just the right amount of product on the full coverage Kabuki Brush. Nothing is worse than getting too much powder on your brush and having to blow some off and waste it, so I was very glad that it was set up this way.
I'm not one to wear foundation, in fact I have worn it one time in the past 7 years and that was on my wedding day. I really want to wear foundation, but I just can't anymore. In my mid-twenties my skin began to change and become very sensitive, extremely dry in the winter and it became prone to breaking out. So, I just gave up and stopped wearing foundation and powder altogether. I have to admit, I was nervous about giving Mineral Hygienics a try. As I began to read some of the features of this makeup, I really began to feel more at ease and eager to try it out.

I was really glad to see that Mineral Hygienics included an Application Guide along with a Product Guide filled with tips and tricks. It's been a minute since I had a beautiful tan, so the Light Foundation was perfect for me. I love that they are sold in sets, so the Medium Light will be great as my skin begins to tan again. I used the sifter and poured a little foundation into my jar lid. It was really easy to apply and I found that a little goes a long way which means it will last a good while, hooray! My skin is imperfect and I found that this foundation truly covered these areas well leaving me feeling really good about my complexion and I wasn't even to the next step yet! The foundations of my past were liquid and required a sponge to apply properly. Then I would have to blend and blend until before I knew it I had my face caked up with a thick layer and there would be streaks. Mineral Hygienics went on so easily, filled in and covered up all the right places. It was lightweight and blended in perfectly with no streaks!
The powder was easy as pie - I dusted my face lightly with the brush leaving a flawless lightweight finish atop my foundation. Usually after applying powder, my cheeks would begin feeling hot and turn red, but this wasn't the case with Mineral Hygienics. I was genuinely happy with my beautiful complexion at this point, but I also had a bronzer to apply. I gently dusted it across my forehead, a little on my chin and a tiny bit across my nose and cheeks. I probably could have added more, but I was already so thrilled about my new look that I didn't want to take the chance of adding too much. I was really happy with the results and my slightly sun kissed face.
After applying for the first time, I really liked Mineral Hygienics. It made my complexion look gorgeous and filled in my lines of tension (a.k.a. forehead wrinkles). It also did a fabulous job of hiding my imperfections and making my skin appear to be one tone. I loved how easy it was to apply, that there was no mess and that it was a quick process. As much as I loved using it for the first time, the real test for me was to see if my sensitive skin could tolerate it and if it would cause me to break out like every facial product of my past. I am thrilled to report that after two weeks of using Mineral Hygienics, my face has not broken out nor has it become irritated! Overall, I couldn't be happier with my Mineral Hygienics experience and I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a healthy, all natural makeup that will leave your complexion looking beautiful!
