beauty scoop | jane iredale purepressed base mineral foundation spf 20

As a skincare fanatic, one of my goals is to be able to bare my face to the world, showing off a healthy, blemish-free face.

While these days do happen every once in a while depending on my diet, stress levels, exercise habits and beauty routine, more often than not, I need a little help evening out my skin tone.

Lately I’ve been using Jane Iredale’s PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation in Warm Sienna for featherlight, semi-matte coverage that allows my skin to breathe.

{Jane Iredale sent me a sample of its PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation in “Warm Sienna” to review. It retails for $52 for a 9.9-gram compact.}

Below is my “before” on the left and “after” on the right, taken inside and without Photoshop editing beyond increasing the exposure (because again, it was taken indoors under fluorescent lights and was kind of dark).

You can see that I’m experiencing a decent skin week save for a few blemishes on my chin and some breakouts along my hairline that you can’t see thanks to my bangs.

In the “before” picture, you can notice some redness, darkness under my eyes and the blemishes on my chin.

After a light application of just the Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation in Warm Sienna, you can see in the “after” pictures how much more even and clear my skin looks!

Here’s what’s inside Jane Iredale’s PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation:

Active Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide 14%, Zinc Oxide 3%. Ingredients: Mica, Boron Nitride, Dimethicone, Stearic Acid, Plankton Extract, Algae Extract, Pinus Strobus (Pine) Bark Extract, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract. May Contain: Iron Oxides, Ultramarines, Chromium Oxide Greens

I love that I’m getting SPF 20 with this lightweight foundation, but I’m even more thrilled that I really can use only Jane Iredale’s PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation as a foundation, concealer, touch-up powder and SPF all in one.

Talk about a multipurpose beauty product!

I’m typically very ritualistic when it comes to applying cream concealer before a powder, but I took my chance with this testing period, and it was surprising to me how much “less is more” rang true here.

I really didn’t need the additional layer of a cream base, and when you’re getting a decent skin day, it’s best to let it breathe as much as possible.

Bonus points to Jane Iredale for making a lovely pressed mineral powder that eliminates the constant state of mineral makeup mess my sink is always experiencing.

While I did receive a full-sized sample of Jane Iredale’s PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation to review, I’ve been a paying Jane Iredale customer for years and will happily repurchase this product.

I’ve had great experiences with other Jane Iredale foundations in the past, and PurePressed Base is no exception!

    That is really the type of pressed powder I am looking for. The results looks very matte (according to the picture!)?

      Yeap, it has a nice matte finish. Let me know if you get a chance to try it!

    Sounds like another winner from Jane Iredale! I completely agree with you on the ritual of applying a creamy concealer before a power!

      Yeah! I’ll admit I went ahead and used my cream concealer underneath my powder this morning, but it was just too early to think about altering this habit, lol. :)

    I keep meaning to try this brand after you did a post about the lipstick! It sounds so great, but I find that not many actual shops sell it, it seems to be more online and I tend to like to try before I buy… I’ll have to take the plunge soon! xx

      Yeah it’s in specialty shops / spas / salons … is there a store locator on the site? I bet you could call / email them and ask for color help for stuff like foundation and concealer! Good luck!
