BB Cream

I bought this on a whim while shopping at Aldi's yesterday. To be honest, I have no idea of why other than the fact that it was only $6, and I don't have any SPF 15 products just for quick trots out to the shops or stepping outside on lower UV ray days. Whatever purpose this would serve, it was a complete and total miss for me. I was shocked to find that the colour 'Fair' was bronzer brown, but that turned out to be a non-problem and it spreads so thinly that it covers nothing, smears any concealers underneath, and leaves a yellowish-brown hue to the skin that looks completely unnatural. I went for reapplication of my concealer/s (I use Lancome for the eye area and another for the occasional blotch/blemish elsewhere on the face), but it was to no avail as it all wore off in the oily mire of this BB cream, despite having used a heavy-duty setting powder and blotting away with rice paper all day. Conclusion: I've tossed it in the bin and am not going to bother trying any other salvage attempts. It isn't buildable - yes I tried a few layers to try to use up the small amount I'd doled out - and yet it leaves enough colour and grease behind for the entire face to dribble off in a couple of hours. Honestly, the only Lacura product I've found that seems to be okay for me is the Naturals Anti-Aging Day Cream with Liquorice Extract Oil & Silk Protein. I don't even know what this BB cream is actually meant to be A very oily tinted moisturiser you couldn't that barely makes the 'tint' stakes. An SPF15 to thin to provide the kind of coverage needed to be effective (remembering that you need about a teaspoon of a standard SPF cream to cover the face effectively against all UV rays). Greasy. Marge Simpson yellow skin doesn't do it for me. Now I don't dare try their foundation lest I break out (as I've done with their face powder and other products), Maybe I try out their products at a time when my skin is particularly prone to breaking out...

I had next to no expectations with this product, but gave it a go as it's so reasonably priced. All I can say is Wow! Dark, smudge-proof, great small brush for lower lashes and the length it gives is on par with high end. Just enough volume as well. Very pleasantly surprised.

Rejuvenating Night Cream

I bought both night and day Lacura rejuvenate creams because the price in ALDI was very good : £3.5 each. Unfortunately after 2-3 days of use I noticed stingy and watery eyes even if I haven't applied it around the eyes. Actually I used a different cream around the eyes. It took me until the end of the week to realise it was the Lacura cream that caused this allergy. I have never been allergic to anything until now and this is why I had no clue what this reaction could be until I stopped using the creams. I thought it might be hay fever (even if I have never had it before) but it wasn't because my eyes got better as soon as I stopped the cream. Otherwise the cream feels nice on the skin. Probably it is very good for those who are not allergic to it. I can't say if it was the day cream or the night one or both but I am not willing to try to find out. Now I got back to the ordinary Nivea cream which doesn't have any miraculous effects but it is friendly with skin and eyes. Sometimes I use L'Oreal cream (for age +45) which is ok but doesn't have any outstanding effects. For dark circles around eyes I recommend a cream with sea buckthorn and olive oil from Cosmetic Plant. I use it for a while and it is good also for the fine lines around the eyes.
