I meant to post this yesterday, but it still needed photos and tweaks (it still could use a bit more editing, but what can you do, eh?). Therefore, this week’s Try It Tuesday is on Wednesday. Sorry for the delay!
One of the new trends in makeup/face care is BB Cream. This ‘all in one’ product is described as a, “multi-benefit skincare that combines intense hydration with tinted minerals and vitamin C.”
Before I went on our honeymoon, I saw a commercial for Garnier’s BB Cream and thought that I’d give it a whirl. In general, I have combination skin with a bit of redness and a few dark spots. My normal makeup routine consists of moisturizer, foundation with concealer, powder, blush and mascara. With this product, I was hoping to combine the first two steps (and save some space in my carry on while still having makeup in case our large suitcase got misplaced).
In short, I LOVE it. The lightweight, creamy texture feels good on my skin and the overall texture of my facial skin feels smoother after a few uses. It also does a decent job of covering my flaws. You’ll also see that it brightens my skin tone.
While I still use moisturizer/foundation once in a while, this product has replaced those two steps in my regular routine. Retailing for approx. $10 and found at many drugstores (I got mine at Target) it’s a wonderful product for a great bargain.
