I just got back from 6 full days in Portugal, we got such amazing weather, it's horrible to come back to this gloomy Irish weather but oh well life and blogging must go on....
One product I took away with me was the Essence BB cream. I happened to come across this product when I was picking up my usual hoard of essence nail polish and decided to give it a try.
I was so impressed with this product. The packaging is lovely, the 30ml bottle is great for throwing into your bag when you're on the go. The product is lightweight on the skin and dries quickly leaving a soft dewy finish. It minimises pores, dark marks & blemishes- perhaps not as well as a foundation would, but it gives great coverage for a BB cream. I was really impressed with the staying power of this cream. It lasted on my skin for 6+ hours a day, which was great considering I was in baking heat. The cream also contains SPF 30.
The only downside I could find to this BB cream is the colour choice. It is only available in three shades- Universal, Natural, Medium. (I purchased No2 Natural)
I was really glad I picked up this gem before my holidays, I wore it every day to the beach. My face usually burns but this product kept my face hydrated and covered all day. I had a few new freckles and a subtle glow, it makes a change from the usual red blotchy face I have gotten from previous sun holidays. I would definitely recommend this for holiday trips.
Has anyone else tried this product?
