Amazingly moisturising to point that you don't need a moisturising cream beneath it if your skin is not super dry or even if it still is.Your skin is hydrated for longer than 12 hours.It is not at all oily considering I have the most oily face ever and while wearing this on a night I didn't feel like my makeup is running down my face.The shade is suitable for all skin tones since it is adjustable to every skin, it doesn't turn yellow or feel caking at all.When applied to my skin at first it looked kind of white, then it took my skin color after a few seconds.It is very lightweight and can be easily used as a tinted moisturiser.The Cons:No SPF which is something all the other ones provide.With summer on the way it will be amazing if it provides some protection.If you are the kind of girl who have skin problem, this is not really a bb cream you could use with a foundation on top, since it is has a very light coverage. For me this is not a cons since I am not a fan of heavy makeup on my skin.Costs: 12 € for a 50 ml tube, I bought mine for 10 € after the skin consultation appointment I had since every products used on you can be bought with a discount (more here)Have you tried this BB cream, what is your opinion?
Will I purchase this product again? Absolutely YES!!! photo Swatches_zps95fc6bc8.jpg*This is not a sponsored post and every written word is my sole honest opinion.Kisses my dolls and have a wonderful day!Bisous.
