A little while ago I read sweetjellybean.com’s blog post about BB cream. Having used BB cream in the past, I was intrigued as I had not had very good results.
The main reason I tried BB cream was because I rely heavily on foundation to cover my ‘rosy cheeks,’ but with the added benefits of BB cream for my skin, it seemed a better long-term solution to switch. (see Sweetjellybean.com’s post for the background to BB cream!) I received a free sample of a Garnier BB cream, which I tried but I wasn’t completely satisfied with.
While the product was easy to apply as it had a similar consistency to liquid foundation, but it didn’t give me the reliable coverage of my regular foundation. Here are some ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos.
As you can see, the coverage was pretty poor. However, when I saw the post on sweetjellybean.com, I thought I could ask a few questions to get some tips on what may work better for me. Donah kindly offered to send me a sample of the Skin79 BB cream that she was reviewing. I sampled the Vital Cream that she reviewed, and I found the product completely different from my experience with the Garnier one.
The consistency of the cream was very thick, which meant that once I had applied it, I initially looked coated in it – however, this is probably down to a lack of practice with the product. Throughout the day, the product did look less obvious, and it resulted in great coverage that lasted all day. It also covered my pink cheeky really well!
Here are the before and after photos:
I love this product and I will definitely be buying it in the future! For more information on the product make sure you read the original post on sweetjellybean.com! There is also a link to buy the product too!
And thank you so much to Donah for recommending this product to me!
