Dude, I can’t get that little jingle out of my head about how “They’re magically delicious!” after snatching up the new Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Correcting Pebbles. Add some oats in, pour the milk, and indeed they’ll be magically delicious!
No seriously, don’t go around gobbling these little guys down, they are meant for your face not as part of your healthy breakfast (how is sugary cereal part of a healthy breakfast anyway!?).
Let’s check ’em out!
A selection of color correcting pebbles to ease dullness, illuminate skin, and create a perfect canvas for makeup!
These versatile pebbles promise a range of great color correcting techniques. Brighten skin, ease dullness, even out skin tone, the works, you name it and it promises to do it!
They come housed in a deep compact which features a stealthy dual compartment to house the pebbles in one place and a brush, puff, and mirror in the other.
Each pebble is a different shades and performs a different function. Green tones down redness, yellow adds warmth, and pink brightens.
Sadly, these fail to work for me.
First off thank god they thought to include both a puff and a brush because as always they really fail with the creation of their brushes. This one is particularly shabby and poorly made. It feels scratchy, sheds terribly, and just has an overall cheapness that’s somewhat unforgivable.
The pebbles in theory sound great but they apply patchy on my dry skin and do nothing in the realms of brightening or easing dullness. These accentuate dry areas and leave behind a dusky film that’s not particularly pretty. Instead of a smooth, even layer, the finish comes across flaky, splotchy, and uneven.
- Those with perfect skin may benefit (if your skin is youthful and super smooth sans dry or oily areas these may apply well and possibly illuminate).
- Those with dry or oily patches (you’ll notice they apply rather badly if your skin has drier areas or oily ones).
- Those wanting to brighten dull skin (I didn’t see much difference).
I honestly failed to see the benefits here and doubt the product will work even on perfect skin but don’t quote me here. I was personally disappointed in the overall quality and performance of the pebbles.
Note: I didn’t swatch as the product appeared transparent in photos.
Give me Guerlain any day!
Anyone try ’em?
How did they work out for you?
