Really like this BB cream as it is very moisturising and creamy as well as having good coverage. The texture might be a bit thick for some people but works great for my dry skin.
I have very pale skin, so none of the Boots 17 foundations are actually light enough for me; even the Porcelain and Ivory shades. 17 BB BLEMISH BALM feels a bit watery, so I wasn't expecting much. But the formula actually works in it's favour; it feels very light and silky on my skin and blending is super easy. Once blended, the results are a smooth satin finish, with surprisingly good coverage.
OK, it won't cover my hormonal breakouts, but my main problem is discolouration, which this product solves. It even reduces the appearance of my pores AND undereye circles too. I've found it to be transfer resistant, long lasting and it doesn't settle in my fine lines. Flaky skin? a thing of the past. I think the packing is very user-friendly; It's in a squeezable, slim tube, so you can squeeze all of the product out. Plus; it's a ideal size for small bags and the lid is very secure.
17 is a brand which is exclusive to Boots stores in the UK.
Love love love. Onto my second tube. It makes me look naturally better! I used to apply with fingers but now use my beauty blender- both work but the blender works better to not enhance dry flaky patches. I have Very dry skin. And SPF 25! My HG for day wear :)
I bought this because I had a spot on my decolletage area that I wanted to cover and as I also have vitiligo around my collarbone thought it might even up the pigmentation in the area. I usually plan my purchases by checking reviews etc, but just happened to be in Boots so, as it was on special offer anyway, thought I might as well buy it. BIG mistake!! It caused me to develop millia all over my chest, together with some larger cystic pimples and clutches of itchy smaller pimples and it has taken me probably about 6 weeks to get the whole area back under control (although there are still some lurking under the surface). It (worryingly) seemed to me like it introduced an infection to my skin, but whatever it did, it is the most terrible item of makeup I have ever used in my life!
LOVE IT! firsty, i hate wearing foundation, i am very pale, i have freckles and foundation allways gives me a 'orange tinge'
I saw my friend the other day and said wow your skin looks beautiful, she said this is what she has been using, i so brought some in 'light' the colour is perfect! which is a huge bonus for me, it goes on lovely, my skin looks glowing and beautiful, and best of all i dont look like im caked in foundation! i will deffinatley continue to use this, after years of searching i have found the pefrect foundation! (if you can call it that)
I didn't like this product at all. The first time I tried to apply it, I applied it over my normal moisturiser and it didn't apply well. The second time I tried it without applying my normal moisturiser first. It applied a bit better but it didn't make much difference to my skin. In my opinion it's just like another tinted moisturiser.
I am impressed. I have been using this bb cream everyday for over 2 weeks now - this is a miracle for me!! I'm so into looking for the best base product, that I swap and change every couple of days because nothing lives up to my expectations!!.
I love how this makes my skin look - my redness is covered naturally, my skin looks younger, my oiliness is controlled (I do powder over this) and it lasts all day for me. My main love for this product comes from the fact that I don't look as though I'm wearing base; it looks 'all me'!!
I have previously tried Skin79's gold bb cream and loved it - I love this just as much. It's a keeper for me!! ^_^
Ok I'm going to totally change my review. I tried it again, the seperation of liquids seems to have just been at the top.
Light coverage but enough for me with a bit of concealer and I have far from perfect skin
Nice appearance, glowy but not greasy.
Lasts ok, you need to blot every few hours though
Colour has a greyish tint like you'd expect for Japanese creams. So I got my Misha BB cream in the palest shade and compared it to this palest shade and I couldn't tell the difference, I wonder...
I have neutral skin tone, not sure if this will suit anyone with warm or pink.
Working well as a light weekend foundation. Will try the No7 one when there's next a £5 voucher promo and will quite possibly buy this again, especially for summer with 25SPF.
For the price I reckon it's worth a try.
I just got this and not 'cause of the recent 'craze' but 'cause it was on offer £5.99..It said "All in one Magic Make Up"...dunno about that so far but the saying suckered me in!!!....Have got it on now and texture is nice, there's no magic about the coverage! You still need any concealer on red areas but I have to say it's good on covering dark eye circles... I don't wear heavy makeup (prefer the 'natural' look) and this is a nice light coverage. I have fair skin (not white white just normal) and I got the medium cause the light was too light (which i normally tend to buy..so if you're light the medium is good or you may look ghostly looking and drained!)...I haven't seen any 'magic' happening yet!...Saw the Missha on ebay so I'm gonna try that one too (I ordered No 21 so hope it's right shade - will update on that when I get it in couple weeks!!). Back to the No17, it's not greasy, goes on easy. The tube is very narrow at the top so you can control exactly how much comes out. It has a really nice texture and is easy to apply...ps for now I've put buy again cause I had to put sommert but like I say, I will let you know.
