Everyone seems to be coming out with BB Creams over the last year, but when a skincare brand (and one I like!) releases one I tend to listen a bit more to their claims of what the products going to do for my skin a little better! If you're wondering what BB Creams do then in short they're a make-up product that offers both good coverage to the skin whilst giving some skincare benefits.
As always I've included a summary at the end :)
I'm going to start with telling you this contains 8% Witch Hazel which is great for helping to clear the skin. It also has an SPF15 protecting against UVA and UVB. It also moisturizes the skin, whilst staying oil and fragrance free. You get your product in a squeezy tube, holding 50ml of product and costs £6.99 from Boots and Superdrug. To compare it to the Tinted Moisturizer they do this gives more coverage and is less warm toned.
What did I think?
I like! The colours a good match for me, being reasonably pale and not orange/yellow toned at all. However having only one shade I can see this being an issue for a fair few people! Blending is good, but I do find that the moisturization isn't great and tend to use one underneath. The coverage is also pretty good, being medium to full coverage. I can't comment too much on the anti-blemish capabilities as I use a lot of different products and it's hard to attribute effects to things. But I haven't noticed anything miraculous since using this.

The Good - great for pale skin, 8% witch hazel, cheap, 50ml product, SPF15, good coverage.
The Not so Good - Only one colour option, not particularly moisturizing.
Would I repurchase? I'm undecided yet, but it is in the better half of the BB Creams I've tried!
Who might like it? Those with skintones similar to mine due to the lack of colour choices!
Price & Availability - £6.99, Boots & Superdrug.
Lets hope they bring out some more colours sometime as this is a BB Cream I can appreciate! Also you may have noticed my lack of Glossybox post/video for this months box, it's coming tomorrow I promise! Thanks as always for stopping by, Hannah
