What’s So Different About These Two NEW BB CREAMS About To Hit The Market?
I’ve recently discovered two new BB Creams that are about to hit the market…
As you know BB Creams are the new black (so to speak) in the beauty world. What makes these two new additions from Shiseido/Moisture Mist so different from all the rest? Well, let me give you a brief synopsis on both…
Starting with the Moisture Mist BB Cream. This one really is quite a stand out for me. The biggest talking point/point of difference is that this Beauty Balm (or Blemish Balm if you so prefer) is available in ONE easy, blendable shade. Yup, one shade for everyone! That in itself is pretty darn cool. Then of course, there’s the added benefit of an SPF to protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays (this one has an SPF40), along with Oil Control Powder – a natural raw material derived from potato of which controls oil and absorbs excess sebum, keeping shine at bay. It’s also formulated with Amino Mineral Complex, a compound consisting of magnesium and calcium, to thoroughly replenish skin and also restore the skin’s natural protective barrier.
But getting back to the ‘one shade for everyone’ part, now I personally thought this would be perfect worn alone for anyone with light/fair toned skin (regardless of whether you are warm or cool toned – this would work for you). For me, I found this to be excellent used UNDER my everyday foundation/BB Cream, as I found that it was quite light. So basically for those of us with olive skin (and darker) you would want to use this as your ‘skin perfector’ under your normal foundation. Although it did totally even out my skin tone and erase all blemishes completely (which I thought was fabulous) I would definitely use this as my base (and I fully intend to, as it had my skin looking completely flawless).
The Moisture Mist BB Cream is available on counter 7 October 2013, RRP $39
The other BB Cream I’ve trialled is the Shiseido Perfect Hydrating BB Cream. This BB Cream is simply beautiful! Whilst it was probably a little too light for my olive complexion (I definitely needed to get the Medium rather than the Light), had it not have been too light, I would be wearing this EVERY day for the rest of my life! It does all the things a BB Cream should – conceals pores, minimises the appearance of uneven skin tone and brightens, giving a fabulous healthy glow. It also really did feel incredibly hydrating and my skin felt amazing & smooth whilst wearing it. The standout is that this Perfect Hydrating BB Cream contains two anti-oxidant ingredients – Thiotaurine and Rose Apple Leaf Extract, which helps to prevent cellular damage caused by external aggressors. Of course, it also contains an SPF (SPF30) which protects against harmful UV Rays. I would absolutely recommend this BB Cream without hesitation – it’s heavenly!!
The Shiseido Perfect Hydrating BB Cream is available on counter 5 September 2013, RRP $65
