Dark under-eye circle, bags, skin imperfections and dry skin are beauty challenges I have dealt with since becoming a mom. I remember with both pregnancies my skin broke out, something I never had to combat before in my life. I had to start some type of face cleansing routine to try to keep it under control, or it would get worse. Now that both of my kids are a bit older, my skin has finally calmed down to being pretty much clear again. Sure, I get the occasional pimple but nothing crazy. You could say I like to try new beauty products for my face since I want this part that is seen by everyone as clear as possible. Right now I’m trying to combat these dreadful dark eyes I have. So you can bet when I hear of a 4-in-1 makeup product that claims to be the “magic skin beautifier” that primes, perfects, hydrates and corrects I am absolutely going to try it.
L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream
L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream arrives in a small 1.0 FL. OZ tube and is available in four color shades to suit all face colors. I chose medium since I have olive tones in my skin.
I shook the tube, squeezed and administered to my under-eye area. I was shocked that the liquid is white in color, not tan like most concealers and foundations we are accustomed to. It also had some grayish/brown grainy looking things in the liquid, so was skeptical this would be grainy.
After applying, it was time to blend in. I loved how this lightweight formula covered up most of my imperfections, did a great job on my under-eye circles and left no makeup smudge on my face. It does turn a lighter brown color once distributed, you’ll even notice your finger or sponge slightly tinted after applying but there was no graininess, yay! Those grayish/brown grainy things I just talked about were indeed the beautifying beads, to match your color once applied. I felt the BB Cream covered well for my skin and looked much better than other concealers I have used. There was no cake looking skin after applying, it’s a lightweight formula, blends well and keeps skin looking natural.
I’ve been using the BB Cream almost daily (I wear makeup about 5 days a week) and have noticed some difference in smoother skin when applying. I still have been applying my SPF moisturizer before applying makeup, so I can’t really comment on the moisturizing effects this offers, but this is infused with Panthenol, Vitamin E and Glycerin for hydration. I would feel more inclined to wear alone without my moisturizer if it included an SPF, however this does not.
Once I apply all my makeup using only a bit of powder after the BB Cream I love the natural look I have. It is not greasy, and dries like powder, giving you almost flawless looking skin. The price is also fair for a 4-in-1 product at only $10.95. I will definitely continue to purchase as it has worked well for my skin tone and type. L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream is available in deep, fair, light and medium shades. For more information visit www.lorealparisusa.com
