Dr Jart Premium BB Cream SPF40 Review
In hot weather a sun cream becomes essential, but many of them leave my skin looking blotchy and clogging my pores. I was really excited ti try the Dr Jart Beauty Balm, as not only does it have an SPF40 but it’s also full of skin saving properties, so would hopefully care for my skin while protevting it. The addition os a tint was also great- could this be my summer go to BB cream?
Dr Jart BB creams are originally from Korea but they are now making waves in the USA and the UK as people become aware of just how good they are, and I was sent the Dr Jart Premium BB cream to try. There are a few varieties in this range, and mine was the Anti Ageing version, which meant that it was quite rich- intended to be good for dry skin. The BB cream had a light almost milky consistency and blended it in well. As it was so milky I had to make sure I didn’t dispense too much, as the first time I tried it I ended up with sticky hands.
The balm sinks in nicely and worked really well with my skintone. I was a little hesitant about if it would suit me, as a one size fits all cream seems insane, but they manage this by having it be really sheer, so it’s not too noticeable. The coverage is REALLY light, so I generally put a foundation on top, as itdodn’t feel enough to last me through the day. The finish was very dewy which i did like as it gave my face a pretty soft focus glow and I LOVED that it was SPF40 as I felt really protected.
I’d be tempted to try some of Dr Jart’s other BB creams to see if they would work well for me- the ‘Oily Water Fuse SPF25 – ideal for those aged 20-35s’ sounds like it might be a better fit for my age group, but the SPF isn’t as high. Overall, I felt really portected wearing this, it was a great base for my everyday makeup, and I didn’t get any breakouts!
£24 from Boots or around $33 elsewhere.
