So, Une is the next one up with their BB cream, but I’m struggling a little bit with this one because it has no SPF and it was my understanding that a key part of a BB cream was its ability to offer protection. The compact is very sleek and easy to use, with a slide-open mechanism but the tiny brush makes covering your whole face a bit of a task. Its perfect for concealing blemishes or under the eye, but it is a very small tool for the job it is intended for.
Texture-wise, it is a beautiful consistency for those who like compact foundations. It is very creamy and the brush delivers the right amount of product. It takes a little working in – I’d have been happier working it in with a sponge – but the coverage is excellent and it feels very light on the skin. I would quibble a little bit with the ‘radiance enhancing’ claim as I didn’t feel it gave my skin radiance, but ‘smoothing, correcting and moisturizing’ claims were all spot-on.

It just looks like a good concealer really…!
Hmmmm really not sure about any of these high street brands own version BB cream, all the reviews have been mixed and where are the healing properties??? Tsk….
I don’t know I might give it a try. I’m still 50/50 on the Garnier BB Cream I think its too thick compared to my Skin79 (Korean) BB Cream and it’s more like a Tinted Moisturiser and it’s pretty expensive for just a 30ml tube, however its easier to get a hold of at Superdrug.
I hope that we’re not flooded for BB Creams, especially if they aren’t up to scratch. Don’t make a Cream tinted like a foundation and slap the words BB on it to entice people to buying it because if I buy something like that I’m not going to be very happy.
So far Skin79 as the Leader of the BB Creams!
I agree with you, I am pretty sure one major point of a BB cream is the SPF. I could be wrong, but to me that is one of the biggest draw cards.
I purposely wouldn’t buy this because it doesn’t have SPF, yet it appears to have that same greyish tone that most BBs have. Why pick something that makes you look greyish if you don’t even have SPF?
I heard a lot about BB creams but never known how they work and all.. but now i do thanks 🙂 I started my beauty blog too and I love yours 🙂
