After not loving the MUA BB Cream (review here) I wasn't really sure where to go next, I wanted to try others but I didn't want to spend some pennies on something I would equally dislike. So I sent out a tweet asking if anyone could recommend one and I had a lot of replies saying the Maybelline one was really good. Luckily for me, the next day I noticed Superdrug had a 3 for 2 offer (which is on again now) so I saw that as a sign to pick it up amongst some other bits I didn't need, naturally.
I've been using this product for a few weeks now and I have to say I’m really impressed. It's so different from the MUA one and it's more how I imagined a BB cream to be. It's not as thick as a foundation and it blends beautifully with my beauty blender (review here). The only thing I’m having issues with is wear time, it's not as long lasting as I would like but I don't know if that's the product or simply me just not putting enough on so I notice it more. I've been really enjoying using this while I have a bit of colour as it makes me look like I have a really lovely natural tan with even skin tone. It leaves your skin feeling really hydrated too which is a massive bonus!
I am glad to have this in my collection and it's been reached for most days when I want subtle make up. I think it's worth the pennies but I would be interested in trying some other brands after i've used this one up.
