You know those days were you need a touch more than just sunscreen, but can’t seem to muster up the energy for a full face of makeup? I know them all too well. And boscia B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++ has been a lifesaver for me on days like that.
BB creams, initially popular in Asia, have claimed vanity real estate stateside in a big way. And no wonder. We love multi-taskers here in America. This BB cream (or “blemish balm” – I’ve also heard “beauty balm”) is concealer, foundation and SPF all in one. It is similar to Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge. But boscia is a far superior color match for me than the Peau Vierge. I just don’t seem to fit any of their offered three shades. Surprising since boscia only offers one shade, but the formula seems to manage perfect color match no matter the complexion – magic!
The botanical formula is oil-free with a cream feel but thinner, liquid application. There are no parabens or fragrances. My sensitive skin loves the soothing properties. While I am usually free of acne, I’ve had a couple spots appear lately. And this has done wonders both clearing up my blemish and covering without cake-y concealer. And it definitely smooths fine lines and basically eliminates the appearance of pores. While initial application is sheer, it is easily layered. And feel free to skip sunscreen because this stuff has my preferred physical sunscreens and an SPF 27.
