Today I have a review of a new BB cream from L'Oreal. I do already use a different brand of BB cream that I absolutely love. I knew it would be hard for me to find something that could compare, but I thought I would give this a try. This BB cream by L'Oreal says that it will prime, perfect, hydrate, and correct all in one. Did it live up to it's claims? Read more to see!
|Can you see the Beauty Beads?|
I agree with 2 out of 4 of the beauty actions that are listed above. Let's talk about prime first. This does indeed prime your skin and makes it a smooth canvas. Does it hydrate? My skin did feel hydrated, but not anymore than my regular moisturizer could do. How about perfect? It did not hide my imperfections, I could still see them even when layering more onto those areas. Did it correct my skin? It definitely gave me a more even complexion and my skin was softer.
It just felt like a moisturizer with beads in it to me. The coverage was not what I expected from a BB cream. Maybe I got the wrong shade and should of went for dark, maybe that would of made coverage a bit better. But still, I would not re-purchase this. I will still wear it under my foundation, but I just can't seem to wear it alone like I would want. Kind of a bummer. I think I have too high of a standard about BB creams from using this one that I had reviewed. I can't seem to get enough of the 3LAB one.
This retails for $10.95 and can be bought where L'Oreal is sold.
Have you tried this? Let me know what you think!
