I use Bare Minerals and have never had a problem with any of their products. I have really sensitive skin so I really watch what I use.

So you do use the vitamin skin prep? and lipsticks?

I use the lipstick, but not the skin prep. Sorry not to clarify. The only thing I use to clean my skin is Dove soap for sensitive skin and olive oil to mosturize. If I have been breaking out I use tea tree oil.

Hi :)

I used Bare Minerals for several years. I would not use the Skin Rever-Upper. Actually, with Bare Minerals, you really don't need a face primer at all. If you want one, Laura Geller and Smashbox both make nice ones that are gluten-free.

As to the lipsticks, the best thing to do would be to either email them or call and ask about the one you have. A lot of their lip products are gluten-free, but *not all*.

I've always been interested in trying bare minerals. But is it also corn free by chance? How does it do on dry skin? Thanks!

I don't know about the corn, but I have dry skin and it's not flaky or anything like that.

Kathy Ann,

Some of the minerals do contain cornstarch. I know for sure, off the top of my head, that the Mineral Veil does. I have combination skin, also depending on what time of the year it is, and it works fine on the drier areas as well. You don't just brush it on like a regular powder, you buff it into your skin using a circular motion. The more you do this, the nicer and more natural the finish is.

I would personally not use products with oats in it but I do however use alot of the bare essentials. Alot of their products are gluten free..including MOST of their lipsticks. I don't use the product with oats in it though
