As a busy mom to two children under the age of 3, I don't have the luxury of spending 30-40 minutes each day getting ready and putting on makeup. I am lucky if I can get a shower before they get up, or if/when they take their mid-morning nap. So, I am always looking for ways to simplify my skin care and beauty routine. And, this is where the new L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream comes in to play. I had seen a handful of commercials on television and print ads prior to receiving a sample from SheSpeaks, and wondered how well it would work with my sensitive combination skin. This new magic cream is supposed to be able to prime, perfect, hydrate and correct skin, leaving you with a flawless bare skin finish. "The product is infused with skincare ingredients like Panthenol, Vitamin E and Glycerin for 24-hour moisturization."
I was sent the light color of the L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream to review last week. Usually I don't put makeup on during the week, unless I will be running errands with the girls, or have to go food shopping in the evening. So, I left the review process to this past weekend. The directions with simple -- Apply by dotting on and blending in with fingertips. The self-adjusting beads will "instantly transform to your skin tone." There is the part I was leery about, as I have spent hundreds of dollars on beauty products over the years, only to be disappointed when the products didn't provide the coverage they claimed, or left my skin looking orange/red and and feeling like I was caked on with makeup. To my surprise this cream was easy to apply and really did blend in nicely with my light skin tone -- even covering up blotchy skin, which is hard to do with a light/fair complexion. And, the best part, I only spent about 10 minutes trying out the product, applying it to my face, and then finishing up by brushing and putting up my hair. Now, how is that for convenience?
As the day went on, I continually checked my makeup in the mirror to see if the product was staying in place, was not becoming shiny, etc. I loved how it felt like I had no makeup on, while having the coverage I needed, and the added benefit of a moisturizer for these cold, windy winter days. And, by the end of the day, the product had stayed put and looked great. When I took it off with makeup remover, I didn't have any skin irritation, which I sometimes see when trying out new products.
Overall, I have to have that the new Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream from L'Oréal Paris is a winner, and will definitely be well received by moms who don't have a lot of time to tend to their skin and put on makeup each day. Now you can put your best face forward in mere minutes -- without breaking the bank or needing an assortment of beauty products. So, if you are not happy with your current makeup routine and are looking to try out new products, why not give the Magic BB Cream from L'Oréal Paris a try?
