I hope everyone is doing super well.
I don’t know about you but I completely suck when it comes to experimenting with new products. I get so stuck on a specific product that I don’t give any other products the time of day. As of late, I have tried to kick that lame habit and I have started playing around. For the past 5 or so years I have only used Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Even Finish foundation or Estee Lauder’s Double Wear. I feel like these two foundations have me under some kind of magic spell because to me there is nothing better. I love the coverage and finish of both products, however lately I’ve been trying to go for a more natural look. A no makeup, makeup look.
As some of you may have noticed BB Creams have become the hottest beauty trend. I have been quite delayed when it comes to this trend. The purpose of a BB cream is to provide moisturisation, sun protection and sheer coverage. Some BB creams can even be used as a primer. The BB cream was originally created by a German dermatologist for patients that have had skin surgery. That’s just a little background on BB creams, now onto todays review… drum roll please…
I came across Sorbet’s BB cream while browsing the beauty isles of Clicks. As I am obsessed with most Sorbet products I thought to myself, what the heck, let’s try this. After all it’s only R100. The BB cream comes in 3 shades; light, medium and dark. I went for the light shade as I am resembling a vampire after the winter season. I could not wait to get home to test out this bad boy.
I think I got a little too excited with my first application as I squeezed quite a bit of product out of the tube. To my surprise a little product goes a long way. I now use a pea-sized amount and it covers my whole face. The cream is thick but it applies so beautifully to the face. At first my skin looked quite dewy, so I was already on the fence about the product as I prefer more of a matt finish, but I gave it a few minutes and the result was stunning. It leaves your skin with a perfect glow and best of all it feels like you are wearing no makeup. The BB Cream also has an SPF of 15 which gives the product extra brownie points. I have gone a full day with the BB Cream on my face and have not had to touch up. It even smells divine. I have yet to find a down fall for this product.
I highly recommend this BB cream – it really is AH-MAZING. It will be your new bestie, I can promise you that. If you test it out let me know what you think?
Stay fabulous & Stylish!
