Sheer Miracle

I think that everyone, makeup wearers, or not, have heard about the benefits of mineral makeup by now. I've recently come across Sheer Miracle makeups and wow, they've won me over with their amazing products. I got to try out several of their amazing products & am going to give you a play by play review!!

I got the amazing chance to try their foundation & bronzer, along with some finishing powder.(Which I would rename "dust" because it is as perfect as pixie dust!) I want to start by saying, I think I have worn powder/foundation/concealer all of 30 days of my entire life. I never have, I've been lucky enough to have great skin which only occasionally needs some cover up spots on random blemishes. Part of the reason I never liked it was the fake skin/powdery/cakey look that it gives so I was curious as to what made this mineral foundation so great.

I have to say, a little goes a LONG way!!! It covered a few little red spots I had on my chin perfectly & blended well. I love the fact that this foundation is high in SPF, its almost waterproof! Of course, its never tested on animals ( very important!) It covers not only skin blemishes but rosacea and spider veins with out clogging pores! One of the most interesting facts about Sheer Minerals is that its safe to use on skin that's been treated, be it plastic surgery, a laser treatment or even chemical peels. Its non organic, so it cant mold or "go bad" like typical store bought makeups. The fact that its that gentle & actually GOOD for skin is amazing to me, that's something all makeup should be, but rarely are!

Next I tried the bronzer. I am a bronzer girl. I don't leave the house with out a touch. I could wear nothing but bronzer for the rest of my life & be OK with that. Gorgeous. It gave me the perfect blend of brown dewy skin that I like. No orange, no clumping or fake bake look, just a nice, natural not over done sunkissed glow.

I have to say, my favorite part comes next.. Finishing Powder. I. Love.It. Period. My skin was GLOWING. It looked like I just came back from a month of vacation BY MYSELF..I was THAT glow happy!!!! And I only used a speck across me entire face!

I am an exfoliater by nature. Every scrub, every product, every brush, tool, you name it. If it exfoliates, I've tried it! Sheer Miracle has created a reusable home dermabrasion system.The Miracle Peel Cloth, check out this amazing information about this even more amazing product.

What Your Miracle Peel Cloth Does

It safely exfoliates the upper layer of your skin, which is called stratum corneum. This is the whole purpose of costly micro-dermabrasion peels and chemical peels (glycolic acid, salicylic acid and enzyme peels).

Skin exfoliation is a naturally occurring physiological process; dead surface skin cells, naturally slough off and reveal new skin cells. However, natural skin exfoliation sometimes needs assistance. For example, when the skin type is oily, the skin has difficulty exfoliating or sloughing off the dead skin cells due to the sticky nature of oil. When the skin type is dry, dead skin accumulates quickly creating a dull, grey appearance to the skin, in addition to inhibiting effective natural skin exfoliation and needed moisture absorption.

Unless you have exceptionally sensitive skin, mature skin or a skin disorder of some kind, you will benefit from regular skin exfoliation. You can gently yet deeply exfoliate your skin with our Miracle Peel Cloth.
