OK, so I am thinking to get more serious with this blog, to start posting reviews of my favorite cosmetic and make-up items as well as some healthy tips and tricks I want to implement in my daily routine. I am doing this because I feel like I need a change in my life to make me feel proud that I have accomplished something at the end of the day. So here we go.
The first item to be reviewed is the Hot Pink BB Cream from Skin79.
This is what it claims to do:
A triple function blemish balm cream that shields skin from premature aging with potent SPF 30, while whitening skin and reducing existing lines and wrinkles. The creamy formula effectively covers up skin imperfections, creating a perfect base for makeup and foundation. Skin feels and looks fresh, with a gorgeous matte finish all day long. Recommended for combination and oily skin types. Contents: 40 g

This is my opinion:
I choose this product to be the first one I review, because it is my favorite make-up item of all time. It has a really unique texture that I have never used before. It is not like a regular BB Cream, it has a very creamy, hydrating texture. It comes in one light color that adapts to most of the skin tones once applied on the face. It calms down the redness and it feels very good. It is very easy to work with and you can build it up as much as you want without looking weird.
I should mention that my skin tone is very white and that my skin type is dehydrated but oily with some blemishes, however this product makes me look like a porcelain doll (in the good way). It does not have a mat finish, which you would think I want since I have an oily skin. It looks very fresh and natural, but if mat is what you want then you can easily get that look by adding just a bit of powder .
This is the only product that I have used for about 3 years now and I am not planning on changing it very soon. It does a really good job at replacing any foundation.
I hope you liked this first official post.
Please let me know in the comments what kind of BB Cream you use and also since I am at the beginning any feedback is welcomed.
