Fact VS Fiction

All over YouTube and now your local drug store is the rants & raves about BB Cream. This cream is suppose to be a primer, foundation, moisturizer, sun block, pore minimization, skin refining, whiting and fights wrinkles all in one. That's a whole lot to ask from a cream and I'm not 100% convinced that this cream will deliver all these qualities. Being the oniomaniac that I am, of course I had to go out and try this cream for myself.

My thoughts:
After trying this cream a few times... I can that this is not for me. The Hot pink balm had a grey tint, thick texture, didn't moisturize and looked cakey {heavy} on, not exactly the look I was going for. I admit that I haven't tried this product long enough to test the pore minimization, skin refining, whiting or wrinkle fighting qualities but I highly doubt any miracle cream would be that effective. I would file this BB Cream along with La Mer; a greatly marketed beauty product with a cult following.

My beauty routine is simple face cream {thick or thin depending on the season} and Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser as foundation. Two items and I can achieve moisturized skin, light/med coverage, smooth natural looking skin plus it lasts all day without primer, also it has SPF! I wouldn't look like a super model but at least I'll look like myself without a caked on face.
