It's been quite a while since I have reviewed or posted about beauty products so I thought I would include this new b.b cream from Clarins on this weeks 'I'm loving post'
What with all the b.b creams u.k brands bought and still are bringing out I've yet to try any as on me they look extremely orange. I've only tried one from Missha which I 'think' is a korean brand, review here. B.B creams tend to have skin care benefits in them which is why I like them. I've never used any thing from Clarins so I was excited to try this.
This is a reasonably larger size then standard foundations/tinted moisturisers etc in drugstores which are usually 30-35ml but this is 45ml.
When I first swatched it I thought the shade would be way to dark for me. I found once I rubbed it in it blends away nicely into a good shade for me, this would be an ideal summer shade. I find if I blend it in really well and top with a lighter powder it looks so natural and brightens up my skin. I find it to be a really nice satin finish which Is my favourite when it comes to foundations etc.
When I first swatched it I was amazed how it melted into my skin and 'perfected', felt soft and has a very nice smell to it. I later found out that it's the Katafray bark in it that plumps and moisturises and Clarins 3D radiance pigment which brightens and minimises flaws.
I do like to use my hands to really blend this in but I also like the RT buffing brush and Sigma F82 if I wear it for the evening for a more flawless finish as this does provide quite a medium coverage.
I also like that it contains an SPF, I always wear a high spf under my make-up anyway but when using this I can skip that step, handy!
Overall I really like this and love how light it feels on my skin, have you tried this?
