So a few days ago I got this pretty little golden envelope in my mailbox. No, there wasn’t a Willy Wonka ticket inside. Instead it was a tube of L’oreal Studio Secrets Magic BB Cream. I’m pretty much stuck in my ways when it comes to primer or foundation. I have a few go-to products and tend to use those every day. My skin is really sensitive and tends to react in crazy ways to new facial products. I’ve used Loreal in the past so I knew that my skin would be okay with it. I’ve also been curious about the wonders of BB cream so I decided to give it a whirl.
Oh my goodness. If you haven’t tried this, you just have to believe me that it’s amazing!! Seriously MAGIC on my skin. First of all, I don’t need to wear primer anymore (huge savings right there, my primer was ‘spensive!) Secondly, I don’t even put on foundation anymore. Now it’s just the BB cream and maybe a touch of powder to freshen up midday. The BB cream looks whitish out of the tube, but when I start to blend it on my skin it turns a light shade of tan. It completely blends on my skin and matches perfectly. I’ve got oily skin and this doesn’t make that any worse, which is nice. I’d love to have more of a matte finish but I can achieve that with a little pat of powder. This is really a product that is affordable and it WORKS. I only use a few dabs of it each day, so this tube will last quite a while. Pretty great for a product that retails around $11. I can swing that, especially with the time savings I’m finding in reducing my makeup application each day. I’d love to see this product with a sunscreen option. Then it would really be perfect.
