Review: L'Oreal BB Cream

L'Oreal BB Cream

I'd tried a few BB and CC creams so its a bit harder to really sway me in any direction. So when I received L'Oreals' BB Cream I already had a checklist in my mind on what it needed to do.  I expected full coverage but have it be light-weight so I don't feel like its caked on. So how did L'Oreals' BB Cream do - wonderfully. There were some differences obviously with the main one being the Beautifying Beads; which are encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamins C & E. This mullti-tasking skin beautifier delivers 4 beautifying actions in 1: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects. Instantly transforms to your perfect shade for a flawless, bare skin finish. 

It's so white?!

Wait does it really transform to my perfect shade? I wasn't so sure when I first started putting it on my face. It was so white and I was worried that yet again I had chosen the wrong color for my skintone. As you can see in the photo to the right - after I started to really work it in it started to change. It isn't so white on the left side but still a major difference in color.  I would recommend using a beauty sponge to apply rather than a brush because with the brush it went on a little too heavy and I had to work harder for it to blend in. Using a beauty sponge it did go on super easy and did work into my skin really well. It wasn't at all oily and it really was completely lightweight. This made for no clogged pores which for me is necessary because I tend to have larger pores.

As you can see to the left it really did transform and it pretty much looked like my skintone. It was a bit lighter, but not too noticeable. You know like those women who choose the wrong color and it leaves their skin completely white like a ghost. There are four colors to help you not do that - fair, light, medium, and deep. The price is pretty affordable so how can you not want to go out and try it? I really liked it and thought it did a great job in covering my skins imperfections. There were some problem areas that I needed to still use a concealer on. Overall it would be a great addition to your skincare arsenal.
