BB Bloody Brilliant.

Firstly, a comment about my beauty posts. I am no beauty expert and I am not going to pretend to be. I have worked as an opera singer for the last sixteen years so I do know a thing or two about applying make-up, taking it off, putting your skin and hair through the wringer. I also have two kids, sleep with one eye open, seem to be up at least once every night and spend my life rushing around like a blue-arsed fly. Consequently, I look like a monster without skincare and make-up products that work. I have also recently had my hair cut short and now seem to wake up in the morning looking like Brienne of Tarth after a particularly violent battle. So, in a nutshell I need stuff that works -that makes me look like I have had more than 5 hours sleep, that I don’t drink endless cups of tea (and more than a few glasses of wine) and that I have the time and energy to look after myself. If you are a child free, clean eating, twenty something, these posts may not be for you…in fact they make may you think more seriously about contraception which I am all good with.

Anyway BB cream. I received a sample of the Beblesh cream in my beauty box and having tried a few other brands of BB cream with minimal results I had no idea that I was holding the Holy Grail of BB in my sweaty little hand. I honestly believe that this stuff is sent by the Gods, via Korea, specifically for me!

So what is BB cream? The brains at Wikipedia say it has the ‘perfection power of a foundation and the moisturising power of a skincare product. On top of that, it also provides a sunblock.’ This stuff is HUGE in Korea, indeed Skin 79 is a Korean brand which claims to ‘combine advanced technology with pure vegetable active ingredients for radiant results that have won the brand multiple awards.’

I mean look at this skin. I want to get me some of that. This woman laughs in the face of open pores, heavy nights and eye bags. YES PLEASE!

So, firstly, this stuff is thick. I am not someone who shies away from the word ‘thick.’ I need thick. I need coverage and the kind of coverage that clings to my skin all day. Amazingly the coverage is thick but it actually feels really light and it really does make your skin look luminous. You do actually glow….which is why I cover it with a little foundation. Don’t be put off by the word ‘whitening.’ I was slightly worried I would end up looking like Elizabeth I but I figured it was still worth a go because even Liz doesn’t look as bad as me without make-up.

I needn’t have worried as I use it as a primer and still cover it with foundation and a bronzer.

It comes in a bottle with a pump so you can control how much you use and you really don’t need much so a bottle will last ages.

As for the long-term benefits….hmmmmmm. Well my pores don’t look any worse and because it feels so moisturising I am convinced it is keeping the wrinkles at bay.

Anyway, give it a try. I think its brill!!!!!

Thanks for reading.
