Mostly, when we hear the word ‘water’ applied to a beauty product we think of it as extra hydrating or in some kind of highly liquid formula – it’s come to be a buzz word in beauty originating from Korean trends. However, don’t think of Dior Water BB as watery because it’s not and I’m not sure why it’s called Water BB (other than that water is top listed ingredient, but that applies to many products). If anything, I found that the texture runs to dry and wouldn’t recommend it for dry skin at all. However, you’re blessed on this occasion if you have a more naturally oily complexion that doesn’t react to mineral oils or silicones because I think it would do very well on that skin type.
Dior Water BB has a lot of pigment for a BB and it does give skin a very natural and even finish that’s lighter in feel than a foundation would be – Mallow is indicated as a moisturiser in this product but it’s very low down on the ingredient listing so I’m uncertain how helpful it would be. A huge plus is that it contains SPF30 but you have to counter that with knowledge that it contains Oxybenzone which can cause skin reaction. The Water BB has very newly launched and it’s HERE for £40 (30ml).
