I’ve been intrigued to try these BB Drops since I first heard about them, but they’re confusing on several levels. First, the sponge – it’s a handy little sponge for sure, but the instructions on the bottle say to apply with fingertip! In fact, the instructions are very hard to read because they’re written in pale grey so if you didn’t see the QVC show that this was on, you’d probably still be wondering what the heck to do. The ways in which BB Drops should be used are to prep, prime and illuminate.
This is never an attractive way to show product but you can at least see that it’s strong on illumination. The bottom line of BB Drops is that they’re an illuminating primer and it works really well to give an all-over glow. The BB skin care element comes from plankton, probiotics and antioxidants to name but a few and crucially, it’s water based with no silicone. I’ve tried it on my skin – both under and over foundation and while I wasn’t absolutely wowed, I can see it has a place in a make-up routine, particularly for older skin that lacks radiance.
The illumination element is very golden – you wouldn’t want to wear this on its own I don’t think, but under a tinted moisturiser or foundation, or to add glowy elements across cheekbones etc, it does actually work. Doll10 BB Drops are £22.27 HERE .

I am using Natio’s illuminating cream, i think it’s probably not that great a product to have in general.
Oh wow, incredibly illuminated! It looks way too glowy for my liking really.
This is the kind of highlighter I need. Natural but you can still see there’s some product there! Looks beautiful! X.
Holy cow!! This looks like what I’ve been looking for. My skin’s been quite dull looking lately and a little bit of this mixed in foundation would be lovely. Thanks for posting!
That gave me an idea when you said: “it would be ideal for older skin”…I think this may make the perfect birthday gift for a relative of mine who is going to be 40 soon. Thanks for sharing 🙂
The gold toned illumination is so pretty, The packaging is quite cute too!
