At the moment, where I live is having an unexpected sunny spell. Although I am anticipating it changing and tipping down soon, I have been thinking about trying more summer appropriate makeup. One thing I really hate is feeling all hot and gross, and having a full face of heavy coverage foundation on.
I decided to jump on the bandwagon, and try a BB cream!
I'm sure you've all heard tonnes about BB creams, but if you haven't, I believe the gist of them is that they are a really light coverage cream, which moisturises, and often protects against sun damage.
As they have a light coverage, they cover blemishes and even out skin tone, without feeling heavy.
Whilst in Superdrug recently, I noticed their new, own brand BB cream was on offer, so I snapped it up!
As you can see, this is way too orange for my skin. When will they create a BB cream for us pale girls?!
I was going to take a picture with this on my face, but I just looked too orange! On the plus side, it smells really nice (like sun tan lotion!), is really moisturising, and very easy to apply.
The coverage is really light, and if I were to wear it out, I would have to use quite alot of concealer under my eyes, on spots and around my nose to cover up the redness.
I wore this for about four hours before I took it off, and it showed no signs of wearing off, not that this product is very noticeable on the skin anyway! This contains some good ingredients, Vitamin C for a radiant glow, Hyaluronic acid to moisturise, caffeine to refresh the skin, and SPF 15.
The other thing I did notice was that in the photographs, the flash seems to make make the BB cream look shimmery on my hand. I'm not sure if that's just my camera, or the product. When I have more time, I will try it on the face again, and photograph to see if it shows up then, because that could be quite a big disadvantage to this product!
So overall, I liked this product, but I'd need it in a lighter shade! Although I would have to use quite a bit of concealer, I did like the finish, the coverage and how easy it was to apply. And the smell!
If you are slightly darker than me, and are after a really light coverage, I would recommend this.
Superdrug BB cream can be bought here, and instore for £8.99(currently £6.99!)
Does anyone have any recommendations for pale BB creams? Or super light coverage foundations?
Thanks for reading! :)
