Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation SPF 20
Best mineral foundation
This type of makeup relies mainly on crushed minerals instead of chemicals and dyes, but experts say that most mineral foundations aren't as natural as they claim to be. Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation SPF 20 is one exception. It contains a short list of mostly natural ingredients and is oil-, talc-, dye- and paraben-free. It also lacks bismuth oxychloride, a common ingredient in mineral powders that causes sensitivity for some. Reviewers say that PurePressed Base goes on smoothly with a lightweight feel that looks as if you aren't wearing foundation makeup at all. It comes in a compact and provides light to medium coverage with a semi-matte finish. It's a great (though expensive) option for all skin types and comes in 24 shades.
