|Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream|
I’ve tried a few BB creams in the past, but I was never really impressed with any of them and didn’t get the huge hype that surrounded them. However, the Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream has completely changed my opinion on BB creams. Today, I’ll be telling you my thoughts on the product.
Firstly, I love the packaging of this product. Although it’s simple, I think it looks very sophisticated and elegant; I love the dark red colour of the tube and the gold screw lid. This product is also easy to carry around with you as it’s lightweight, so it would be completely fine to have in your handbag.
I would say that this product gives you light to medium coverage. I definitely think it has slightly more coverage than the average BB cream. It covers up any redness or blemishes but is still very natural looking. What I love the most about this product is the radiant, healthy glow it gives you. If you like dewy skin, then you’ll love this product. This BB cream feels very light and allows your skin to breathe, so this is great for Summer as no-one wants to wear heavy foundation in this heat! The product is also very easy to blend and apply. It has excellent staying power and lasts even longer with a good primer.
I love the skincare benefits of this product. It has SPF 25, so this protects your skin from any possible sun damage, another reason why it’s perfect to wear this Summer. It’s incredibly moisturising and revitalising, which is what gives your skin a lovely, satin finish. It’s oil free and doesn’t make your skin appear greasy or shiny. It contains 3-D radiance pigments to even out your skin tone. It also contains ingredients that are good for your skin, such as organic kiwi for vitality and radiance and katafray and hyaluronic acid to add softness and restore the skin.
It comes in three shades, I bought mine in shade “medium,” which I have to say is quite dark compared to what is considered the standard “medium” for BB creams. However, this is not a problem at all as once blended, this matches my skin very well. Those with pale skin may struggle to find a matching shade as I’ve heard that “light” is also pretty dark considering it’s meant to be the lightest shade, so the lack of shades could be a problem. This BB cream has a slight fragrance which I actually really like, but some may prefer their BB creams scent-free. Also, at £28, this is very pricey, however, that’s standard for Clarins products and it is a high quality product.
Overall, if you’re looking for a BB cream that feels light on the skin, has good coverage and leaves it looking radiant and glowy then this one may be for you. I would definitely consider repurchasing this when it runs out as it’s the best BB cream I’ve tried. You can buy this from Debenhams for £28.
