Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm


Dr Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm - £24.00 in Boots (link)

I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't swept away by the whole BB Cream fad that seems to have taken over recently. I am a lover of quite medium if not full coverage foundations (not a great lover of my skin as I have a bit of scarring from spots on my forehead, plus I'm quite prone to break outs) so the BB cream idea didn't appeal to me. However when I got this sample in a Glossybox recently I thought I would give it a try. And let me tell you, I have been converted! It basically aims to act as everything you need in one tube; moisturises  protects and corrects and even has your sun protection in there too! On its own it leaves you a lovely coverage which leaves your skin healthy and glowing. I love if for those laid back days where you really don't want to wear a heavy foundation but don't want to wear nothing. It also leaves your skin feeling so healthy! I also find it's great under foundation (a light layer) to leave a flawless and dewy finish, it acts like an all over corrector (great for me who has quite red areas). 

I am loving getting back to writing actual make-up reviews again (it's been a while)!

  2. Fab - I've been toying with trying out Dr Jart but had the same concerns as you regarding coverage. Thank you for helping me make my mind up - just as the foundation bottle is dwindling :) Avril xx
