I've been trying all 4 Dr Jart BB creams available in the UK for a while now (couldn't choose between them so just got all of them! makes sense...)
The Platinum I am not a massive fan of. It's not bad, but it's not quite what I wanted.
It's a bit thick and tricky to spread on your face. It's easiest with fingers, to warm the product up. But in my case the result is always a bit cakey! (I have combi skin with dry-ish cheeks and very oily T-zone)
It does cover well though, medium coverage so you can just use this on its own. For me though, to get the finish to be a bit less cakey, I do put a bit of moisturiser under and spray with a mist on top (setting spray, Fix+, toner...). Wish I didn't have to!
The other negative is that the colour match is off for me! I am an NC15 and as pale as I am, this is paler and makes me look ghostly. Might be good for NC10/NW10, but for me this doesn't get better as for the reviewer below. It looks ok when I add blush on top but really, I'd like it to match me.
Conclusion: I don't like using this and would not recommend it to anyone with dry skin/ patches and darker than NC/ NW 10.
Dr. Jart+ seems to offer different BB creams in different countries... This one (along with Premium, Regenerating and Water Fuse) is on sale in Boots. I bought it during a promotion - £14 instead of the usual £22. It promises to deliver 'full coverage with light application' and to contain a special 'berry cocktail' with antioxidant and anti-aging properties. Whether it delivers on the latter, time will tell - but for the rest:
- Yes, it delivers good coverage, and a little goes a long, long way.
- It's easy to apply, and has a smooth, pleasant texture
- It comes out of the tube and goes on the face a ghastly, ghostly, chalky shade, so for the first 5 minutes or so, you look embalmed... But DON'T WORRY (like I did). It soon settles and blends.
The finished result, once this has happened is great: I'd describe it as a softened, rested glow. Blemishes are well-covered, though not completely invisible. Recommend teaming with a gel, liquid or cream blush as have found that powder causes caking. Finish with a neutral, shimmery shadow, mascara and a clear or light peachy-pink gloss - et voila! An easy, fool-proof, invisible, everyday look that's good to go.
