There has been so much buzz over BB cremes lately, and i'm still not fully convinced I can explain all the functions it has. It's makeup, it's skincare, it has long lasting effects, it promotes even skintone etc. All I do know is - this product kicks so much ass. I have been using it daily for weeks so I could give it a proper review. A friend gave it to me and dismissed it as "uhh, I have no idea what this is and I figured you probably did, so here, have it." Free BB creme? Sure! A few things surprised me about this product:
- How thick it is. I was half expecting it to be more of a serum-type consistency, which is totally not the case. It's a thick, tinted creme that's very luxurious.
- The amazing amount of coverage it has. I'm not the type of chick that can just roll out of the apartment with zero makeup on. I just don't have it in me. When I started using this, sometimes I skipped out on my foundation all together because I didn't need it. It covered up my imperfections and really gave my skin a nice, even look. I still get acne from time to time, so it isn't always easy for me to cover up marks with concealer, foundation, etc. This seems to almost erase them.
- How silky it left my skin. After it dries, the look and feel of your skin is so silky and smooth! I find myself checking out my face in the mirror in disbelief (I know, so self-absorbed right?)
I haven't tried other BB cremes, but if you're interested in trying one I highly recommend this one! Another good thing about it, is it has SPF 45. I'll admit that i'm not the greatest with putting sunscreen on my face in the summer, and it's SO BAD for your skin to constantly be exposed to rays. This is an all in one, throw in your beach bag, sunscreen/foundation/moisturizer hybrid and I love it. I've found that I get the best results when I apply it with my fingertips like a moisturizer. Like most products, I felt like I lost a lot of product when I used a cosmetic sponge.
Now that I've used it daily, i'm hooked. When it runs out, it will totally be replaced! Have you guys tried any BB cremes?
