The BB Cream That Feels and Looks Like Skin

Hands up for glowy and healthy complexion? Holiday season beckons for late night boogies, drinking and lots and lots of partying... And our common enemy being winter's dry and chapped lips, redness from blustery winds, and all that boring irritable stuff.

But when you're partying, you want to look good. ~REAL GOOD~.

(Before that let's take a LOL moment to look at that composition with WSJ in the background, me tryna be all ~intellectual~ and shiz.)

Anyway, stage right enter the Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB Cream. After a delightful facial session at Omorovicza at Liberty (which I briefly talked about here, and would highly recommend), I was given a few samples which included this BB Cream to try out.

After one week of trial, I was sold! I also got the full bottle. And you know I don't get sold easily 'cause yo girl is skeptical af.

It has a smooth, creamy texture which glides over your skin, covering any redness or dry patches to even out the skin tone. I used this when I was suffering from a hysterical skin breakout and it managed to cover it ~thank the Hungarian heavens~.

It contains SPF 20 and doubles up as a sunscreen, and also excludes synthetic ingredients as this brand is known for. Zinc is on the list, which calms redness and irritation of the skin. The cult-ness of this product which makes them the mothereffin' BB cream queen is that it is silicone free – silicones gives you that smooth and soft feeling that most products have, it's also semi-occlusive which means it is more prone to accumulate in layers, requiring more effort when it comes to removing and cleansing. Some silicones are also not water-soluble, so if you're in a hurry and don't cleanse well... we all know how that goes. Silicones also takes too long to degrade, which isn't all that great for Mother Nature, if you think about it.

And plus, when you wanna partay all night long, who wants to spend 20 mins taking makeup off?!

As you can see, while there are still mild redness on my forehead, the coverage is even and silky smooth. Probably not like a baby's bum, but let's say 70% of it. Good enough for me.

This lil thang don't come cheap at £80 but I redeemed it against the facial at Omorovicza (yeeee son) so you get a treatment which comes with the product which I think will make it worth your while.

While a luxury item, it's one that definitely goes a long way - I've had mine for about 2 months now and it'll probably last me through to next year :-)

What's your favourite BB creams/luxury makeup?
