I hope you're all well!
Today I wanted to do a first impressions on the Clarins BB Skin Perfecting cream. I got a sample of this a while ago in a magazine, and so thought I would test it out to see what I thought of it.
This is a first impressions post simply because the sample shade was 'Medium' which unfortunately was too dark for me, and so I didn't wear it for the full day. However, after applying it, I did have a few thought which I wanted to share with you guys.
I really liked how the BB cream evened out my skin, and helped to reduce the redness slightly. I found it to blend nicely into the skin and despite the dark colour, it was surprisingly quite forgiving when it came to the colour.
I also felt that it didn't feel too greasy. As with most BB creams, they are usually quite glowy, but I felt with the Clarins it still gave my skin a glow, but it wasn't too greasy or shiny. I do have oily skin, so to make sure it lasted throughout the day I would definitely still powder.
Although I didn't wear it for the whole day or for several weeks, I was still surprised with the Clarins BB cream. I felt it offered good coverage whilst still feeling light on the skin. I think the finish wasn't overly dewy or glowy, and so may also suit people with the more oiler skin, as long as it is set with powder.
I am unsure about how light the lightest shade goes and vice versa with the darkest shade, but the BB cream does come in 3 shades: 'Light', 'Medium' and 'Dark', and retails for £28.
Have you have tried the Clarins BB Skin Perfecting cream?
If so please leave a comment down below telling me what you think of it!
I also wanted to quickly mention that yesterday was the 1st birthday of my little blog.
A year ago yesterday I very nervously wrote my first post. But I did just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has followed and supported me and my blog over the last year. It really has meant a lot to me, and hopefully this is only just the beginning of blogging for me!
So I really hope you enjoyed the first impressions post, and I hope you found it helpful. Please leave a comment down below as I love hearing what you guys think!
Thank you for reading,
