No 7 beautiful skin BB cream review

BB creams have been one of the most talked about products in recent months, and as No7 are well known for their skincare, I had high expectations of their BB cream:

One of the main selling points for me was that it offers both UVA and UVB protection. After years of experience, I know my skin tends to react with SPF, so I've been wearing this on top of my moisturiser.

The formula is thick, but blends easily into the skin. Coverage wise, it's about that of a tinted moisturiser. I tend to go for sheer products anyway and this has been my go to base for the last few weeks.

The BB cream comes in 2 shades and I was sent the fair shade to try out. It can sometimes look grey when first applied, but within 5 minutes, it warms up and is then a good match for my NC25-30skintone.

I find that I need to blot and repowder during the day (something I do anyway) but when this tube runs out, I'll be repurchasing it in the normal/oily version.

On the whole, one of the best BB creams that I've tried. Thanks to the UVA and UVB protection, I've been using it in place of my usual sunscreen and I love that it offers me coverage without the need to add an extra step to my skincare. Definitely one to repurchase when this tube runs out.

Have you tried any BB creams? Which is your favourite one?

    1. Most of the western ones seem quite similar to tinted moisturisers, but definitely give them a try x

  4. Hmmmm loving the sound of this but just hoping the fair will be fair enough for my skintone which is practically white!

    1. Hmm it does rather lean to the dark side, so may be too dark. Give it a swatch in store next time you go shopping :) x

  5. I have some samples of the Garnier one but haven't got round to trying them yet! This sounds good and I like that it has SPF in it. x

    1. The SPF is fab, not many offer UVA and UVB protection. Let me know how you get on with the Garnier one x
