Spring! Spring! Spring! Well, this is the season all about natural makeup look and by the way, who doesn’t like to wear a dewy glowing makeup look, isn’t it? Furthermore, from the tittle you might have guessed about what I’m going to portray today and yes, it is all about the Spring makeup favourite BB cream. To be honest, my hunt for BB cream is a long tale story. To begin with, firstly, I tested and tried Clarins BB cream and I immediately got hooked up with the smooth texture of the base, radiantly glowing finish and a flawless healthy looking skin. Then, having tested myself with the branded product already, I thought of making my step further into the drugstore division and so, I finally landed onto my ever favourite brand, Rimmel London. Rimmel London’s BB Cream is the one to try for if you are seriously looking for a pocket friendly BB cream as it gives an astonishing 9 in 1 effects of even coverage to your skin and that too for a fraction of the price. Now, let’s move onto the super hero of today’s post, which is none-other-than, Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB.
The light-weight, silky texture of the BB cream is the one that anyone could always yearn to wear for this Spring.
Gives a sheer coverage by perfecting skin tone and finishing off smoothly with a flawless healthy glow.
The BB cream itself has inbuilt moisture content and hence, it keeps your skin hydrated and refreshed all day long. Then comes SPF 30 which is highly beneficial in protecting your skin by fighting against harmful UV rays. Besides, Estee Lauder is one of the brand where they always try to implement the latest available technology in their products and this product is not in exception either as the formula is packed with the nourishing anti-oxidants including Vitamin E and Vitamin C and hence, it gives you a long lasting eight hour coverage and hence, no worries if you opt this BB cream for workwear. Sorted! Lastly, the product comes with an oil-free and fragrance-free formula which is an amazing bonus too as it weighs gentle on your skin.
In this product, shades are described in terms of Intensity and it ranges from 1.0 to 6.0 and hence, there is a variety of possibility shades that is available to suit all kinds of skin types. Apparently, Intensity 1.0 acts as a lighter version and then to medium and it tends to get darker when it reaches Intensity 6.0.
For a 30ml bottle, it costs £30 and hence every 10ml carries a price tag of £10 which sounds reasonably good for the amount of quality that you get from the product. Moreover, a tiny blob is more than enough for every single use and hence, a little goes long way.
The packaging of this product is very impressive and it comes with a well sturdy, squeezable, beige-hued tube and enclosed by a screwable golden top.
How to use:
Use this BB cream instead of your regular foundation during Spring/Summer months and the reason for using this BB cream during warmer months is, as it provides a much lighter base than to a heavier foundation.
BB cream can be applied in a numerous way and to start with, if you want a tool-free option, then take a tiny blob of BB cream in your fingers and pat in diversely to get an even coverage and the important benefit here is, the warmth of your fingers gives a perfect base or you could also use a foundation brush or a beauty blender sponge for a faultless natural finish.
Always, start with small blob of BB cream and then later, you could able to decide the amount of coverage that you are up to so as to get a smoother looking finish.
