I’ve always been a big fan of Physicians Formula..From their blushes to their eyeliners, I’ve tried it all and have never been disappointed. I do wish they were available here but alas! Today I will be reviewing their BB Cream in Light/Medium which I’ve been using since 3mts or so..
About Physicians Formula Super BB Cream
My experience withÂ Physicians Formula Super BB Cream:
Packaging: The BB cream comes in a medium sized tube with a twist up lid. Frankly i prefer flip top lids on such products since I inevitably end up dropping the lid..LOL
Texture: This cream is more on the runnier side. The product also tends to separate so one needs to shake the tube well before usage so as to avoid a gooey mess. It does take a minute or 2 to set and has a dewy effect..perfect for dry skinned gals like myself 😉
Coverage: Medium at best. This will not cover any marks or scars. It only blurs them a tad bit but nothing major. A concealer would still be required.
Staying Power: This is the best part. My skin did not get sweaty at all and I had to touch up with my compact only after about 5hrs or so which is quite good. Mind you I was roaming in a cool atmosphere so not sure how this would fare in peak summers.
I find this perfect for my uber dry skin. My skin tends to look dry and a bit flakey with matte effect cream so this is a wonderful change from that. Additionally i dont need a sunscreen underneath this since this has SPF30 already.
It also brightens up the face which is another positive. After a crappy experience with the Clinique BB Cream which made.my skin look ashen this is a welcome change.
Now for a very important point…application. When I used this with my fingers i felt it looked a bit streaky. Then i used my Sigma F80 and Voila! I had the perfect finish. I like a subtle dewy look and this is perfect for that.
What I like aboutÂ Physicians Formula Super BB Cream:
- Has Spf of 30
- Perfect for dry skinned beauties
- Gives a dewy effect
- Good for daily usage
- Very good staying power
What I dont like aboutÂ Physicians Formula Super BB Cream:
- Needs to be shaken before usage since it separates.
- Conceals next to nothing. So one cant skip a concealer.
- Availability is a problem.
I would definitely recommend this to all those with dry skin. If you have someone coming in from abroad please do ask them to pick this for you.
