Flower Beauty BB Cream Review


     Let's just get this out of the way right off the bat... I love this BB Cream! Love Love Love!  And I have oily skin, especially now in the summertime.
     It's not really a "bb cream" though. 


  • According to flowerbeauty.com, here are the claims for this product...
  • Use daily to eliminate skin dullness
  • Covers imperfections and discolorations
  • Softens and smoothes skin
  • Eliminates unwanted shine

     It does not have spf, which is one of the basic aspects of traditional bb creams.  I would call this a foundation before I would call it a bb cream and I love this product more than the Flower Beauty About Face Foundation.

     It feels super smooth to apply and applies very evenly.  I like using my beauty blender, as I do for many foundations, but it also applies well with fingers or a brush.  It doesn't set too quickly, so you do have time to work it on, no need to rush.  But it definitely is long-wearing... not quite as heavy duty as Revlon Colorstay, but it's definitely in second place in my collection.

     The packaging is great, like all Flower Beauty products.  It is simple and sleek but still so classically beautiful.  It is a squeezy tube, which is easy to use and the opening is a perfect size, you won't get too much product out at one time. The product inside is a thicker consistency, but not quite whipped in texture.  It is definitely not runny or watery at all.

     It definitely has great coverage.  It gives a beautiful matte finish.  In the spring, before it got hot and humid and yucky here, this product would last all day long without needing a setting powder or any touch-ups in a typical day.  However, with the heat and humidity, it needs a setting powder because of my oily skin.  I start getting shiney around the 4 hour mark and if I don't set it or touch-up all day, it is totally finished by the 8 hour mark.  By then my makeup is way too oily to go on any longer. However, I'm sure this product would be fine for those without crazy oily skin like my own.

     I am between shades now that it is summertime and I've gotten a little bit of color.  I mix shades 1 and 2 evenly and it is a great color match.  This product does have a very strong yellow undertone in both of the shades I have so I use a neutral powder to tone it down a bit.
   
     Overall, I would definitely recommend this product, it is just awesome!

Thanks for reading!
Love,
Alaina
