I think I might have found one of my very favorite products on earth in Dr. Jart+’s Premium Beauty Balm. No really, after two weeks of using it, I am seriously in love.
What IS it you ask? It’s one of those newfangled just now coming to America BB Cremes. They have been huge overseas for a couple years but now everyone and their mother are selling them here, and I am REALLY happy about it!
A BB Creme is basically an all-in-one type of face product. They are a moisturizer, sunscreen (usually), primer and foundation all mixed into one bottle.
Premium Beauty Balm contains an SPF of 45, which is HUGE for me. It’s also got an anti-aging Serum with Bio-Peptides (sure can’t hurt at this age), and antioxidants.
The product comes in a pump style which makes it easy to keep clean and get out as much as you need.
Now the thing about this stuff is there is only one color. It just so happens that the color is completely undetectable once blended into my skin, but obviously that won’t be the case for everyone.
I have been using the stuff for a couple weeks now and I really do completely adore it. But it’s not without a couple small issues. I have been using it on my face over a moisturizer, although it does feel moisturizing on it’s own. You can use it as a base under foundation, but honestly, for most people I think that’s overkill. I use nothing else with it.
Feels silky smooth and blends in easily
Does an excellent job of masking pores as a primer would
Great coverage. It’s basically a foundation for me
Doesn’t fade or wear off throughout the day
Doesn’t settle into fine lines at all
SPF 45 and anti-aging serum is a very nice bonus
Just one color
By noon I need to blot my face a bit because I do tend to get shiny
A little on the expensive side at $39 for 1.4 oz
Honestly I really feel no need to bother with primers and foundations now because this is doing everything I want. I will be using it until the last drop is in the tube and will most likely be purchasing it after that because this all-in-one product is the lazy girls way.
Have you tried any BB Cremes?
