Several cosmetic companies, both high end and drugstore brands, have given into the beauty balm craze by designing their own particular version. There are so many different BB Creams in the market that trying to keep up with them can be frustrating, not to mention time consuming. Here in the offices, we have certainly had a "go at it" by playing with several different versions of BB creams as well as comparing them to one another. Some are just okay, while others are just awesome products.
One of the BB Creams that stood out the most was L'Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream.
This is not the only BB Cream that L'Oreal has in the market, however this one is special - This is an all -in-one beauty solution that is formulated to do all of the following: prime, perfect, hydrate and correct skin.
When the BB Cream is released from the tube, it is white in color; however when you look at the cream up-close you can see that it has tiny gray beads in it. The texture of the BB Cream is very thin, light, almost on the watery side of liquids.
After a few stokes of blending the BB Cream, the color of the liquid begins to change. The little gray beads in the cream are self adjusting - meaning that with the help of these tiny beads the cream will instantly transform into your skin tone.
As you can see in this photo, just after a few blending strokes, the BB Cream went from white to a beautiful medium skin tone.
Now let's take a look at what L'Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream looks like on your skin.
In this photo, you can see that the BB Cream definitely gives your skin an even color and texture. What I prefer to do is put a dot or so of BB Cream on the back of my hand, then using my ring finger I dab the cream on my forehead, cheeks, chin and neck.
Then in gentle blending motion, using the tips of my fingers I proceed to blend in the cream into my skin just the same way I apply any other type of facial lotion. I noticed that the BB Cream does not take long to blend and when it has fully dried, your skin does not feel wet or sticky. The texture of your skin is soft and hydrated.
One of the four beautifying actions that this BB Cream is supposed to do is correct skin. At first, I will admit that I was very skeptical - thinking that the cream is so light in consistency that it is going to be impossible for it to correct my skin because unfortunately, I have been dealing with adult breakouts on my jawline and neck of all places.
I was proven wrong. The BB Cream not only provided a good coverage, but it also helped camouflage the redness around the breakouts. I did use a tad bit of concealer on top of certain areas, but that was only because I do that regardless of what product I use. However, with that being said, the BB Cream gave my skin such a flawless look, I only used a little loose powder on my t-zone to avoid excess oil from forming as I have very oily skin.
So, if I had to rate the L'Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest rate possible, I would certainly give this BB Cream a solid 5. Not only does the product perform the way it is formulated to, but this BB cream can be used everyday either as a primer or completely by itself. I love that!
