When I found out I was expecting my little man my skin decided to do a 180 and went from being slightly dry with a few acne patches to lizard dry and acne hell. I could no longer use my normal products and had to try and try and try tons of new products.
I virtually gave up until I came across the Maybelline BB Cream. Was I skeptical…yes but I was also desperate. Not only was I covering acne I also needed to cover numerous broken capillaries (they come from throwing up too much). So I bought the Cream in Light and decided to give it a go.
Pro’s – The coverage is smooth and when it’s set with a power (I use Bare Minerals) It practically makes my skin look airbrushed without that fake look. You don’t need to use a whole lot to get coverage. It hasn’t clogged my pores (BUT remember… I have odd pregnancy hormones right now). I work from 8am-8:30pm and it stays in place all day!
Con’s – If you don’t set it with power you won’t get the coverage you probably want for acne or blotches.
How I apply:
I start by dabbing it on my face then blend lightly with my fingers. I then take a foundation brush and blend more. I set with Bare Minerals in Fairly light.
Have you used a BB Cream? It feels like a tinted moisturizer to me but a little bit thicker.
