I am a huge BB/CC cream fan, I have reviewed many of them from drugstore to the more spendy and everything in between here. I am always on the look out for something new and this my friends is a really exciting product! Okay, so let’s get a couple things out of the way. One- it’s a fortune for a BB cream and two- it’s not hideous packaging but that logo is not getting photographed on my vanity anytime soon. Now we can get on with the good stuff now! This product is amazing for anyone that loves the idea of a BB/CC cream but needs more coverage, but doesn’t want to look like they are wearing cakey make-up, because of course the beauty of BB creams are they feel and wear like tinted moisturizer. This has build-able coverage and I didn’t need additional concealer (the less products the better/easier for this mama). I love that it’s a natural, good for your skin product (Jane Iredale is often sold via plastic surgeon and dermatologist offices to use after procedures because it’s chemical free). There wasn’t any noticeable scent that I could detect, very neutral. The consistency comes out thicker than most BB creams (similar to the ‘It Cosmetics’ that I reviewed) but if you warm it on the back of your hand and apply it, it blends very nicely. One beauty blogger said that she liked it because it gave her face ‘a nice clean canvas’ to work on, I agree, you can get an even complexion quickly with this BB cream. I have really loved using it and have been wearing it for a couple of weeks, besides the price the only other con for me is that there’s not a lot of shades to choose from and I may be leaning towards an in-between shade that doesn’t exist, it’s just way too expensive to try to blend two shades together and who has that kind of time? But if you can get a color match this product would be nirvana for anyone that wants to jump on the BB cream bandwagon but feels they need more coverage than most give. Yes, it will cover hyper-pigmentation, broken capillaries and blemishes, I would liken it to a concealer + BB cream in one (and yes, there’s an SPF too). You can read more about it here.
