Sometimes less is more. When you want some coverage, but you definitely don’t want a thick blanket of foundation, try Senna Barely Base ($40).
When you want to look polished but don’t want the fragrance that comes with many foundations, try Senna Barely Base.
When you want a foundation that has ingredients that are good for your skin, like minerals and antioxidants, but you aren’t looking for a huge list of space age skincare lab experiments, try Senna Barely Base.
Senna tells us: This mineral infused tinted moisturizer hydrates, protects skin with natural mineral sunscreens and gives sheer natural coverage to even out skin tone and diminish flaws. Antioxidant vitamins, mineral complex and plant botanicals help to revitalize dull skin, boost elasticity and prevent free radical damage for a youthful healthy glow. Oil-Free, Fragrance-Free and Long-Wear.
Let’s see how Lisa and Marcia feel about their experiences with minimalism and Senna Barely Base.
I have always been more of a full-coverage gal. I have an uneven skin tone, so usually the coverage I get with tinted moisturizers and BB creams is too light for my taste. But I definitely found that Senna Barely Base strikes that perfect medium between light and full coverage, and I reach for this all the time on the weekends.
I tried the Light Shade, which has golden undertones so it looks pretty warm swatched.
My skin is neutral, I need soemthing that is not too warm, not too cool. I found that Barely Base does a great job of melding and transforming into a color that suits your skin tone, so while it swatched really warm it ended up nicely neutral on me.
Yup, you can still see my freckles, but at least my skin tone is pretty even and has a nice glow. Less is more for me on the weekends – I am all about putting my hair up and using my fingers to smooth on a little Barely Base. It’s minimalism that even a full coverage gal like me can love.
Senna Barely Base has been a great fall BB cream for me. I’m so not a summer person and I wither away from the heat. I need the lightest products ever on my face. But come fall the weather is a little cooler with each day bringing several temperatures. It can go from 40 to 70 in one day. That’s when I need Senna Barely Base. My face needs more coverage but I still want the skincare benefits that a BB cream has provided.
I wear this in Fair which is described as “cool ivory for pale skin”. It’s like they have me pegged. The color is absolutely perfect for me.
It has a little more color than most porcelain shades and it has great light coverage. I love love love that it has no fragrance since so many of the brands I’ve tried do have a fragrance, some even lingering.
If you’ve been wanting to try a BB Cream but worried that there wasn’t enough coverage for you, then Senna Barely Base is the answer. All the goodness of skincare with just enough coverage to make your imperfections disappear.
