I received a free sample of L'Oreal BB Cream from SheSpeaks.com. All opinions are my own.
As most of you know, BB Cream is HOT right now! I was pretty excited when I received this sample in the mail, L'Oreal is a brand I trust and have used a few of their products in the past.
This product gives you sheer coverage to create a natural bare skin finish, while delivering built-in benefits. It features four beautifying actions, primes and smoothes, perfects to hide flaws, hydrates, and corrects and evens skin. The L'Oreal BB Cream is infused with skincare ingredients like Panthenol, Vitamin E and Glycerin for 24-hour moisturization.
To apply, simply dot on and blend with fingertips. Self-adjusting beads will instantly transform and blend to your skin tone.
L'Oreal Paris Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fl oz. It is available in four shades and is sold at mass food and drug retailers nationwide. Click here to find out more.
What I thought
I like this product! When I first read that there were color beads in the cream I did freak a bit. My skin is super sensitive to any type of beads/exfoliates. I was very nervous to try the product after reading that. But, I forged on and.....I honestly did not feel them at all! I was shocked! I just knew my face would end up being very irritated, but it was not, I could not feel the beads at all! *I wanted to add that I have seen a few reviews of this product that received the darker shades and they COULD feel the beads. I am not sure why the fair is so different from the other shades but, it looks like it is.
The first thing you will notice about the L'Oreal Paris Magic BB Cream is that it comes out of the tube white. I thought there was a defect at first, I assure you there is no defect. I received 'Fair' and have seen a few other reviews that received darker shades, their BB Cream was white as well.
As you apply the cream the color beads pop open to create a wonderful shade that blends in naturally with your skin tone. The cream feels kind of like a wet powder as you are putting it on and becomes a bit dewy until it sets. Once the cream sets it becomes a bit more matte, but not super matte, while still being a touch dewy.
The L'Oreal Magic BB Cream offers a light coverage. You will not be able to hide acne with this product, but you can build the product up and help conceal a bit better. For me the coverage was just fine. I used this BB Cream for about 2 weeks and the entire time I used it I would apply the BB Cream, allow it to set for a few minutes, then apply powder. I did not use a foundation or concealer. I liked the finished look and for me gave just enough coverage without being fake looking.
