I’ve never really worn much make up – it seems a bit of a hassle, I have pretty good skin and usually if I wear foundation (even the lightest stuff) I feel like I’m wearing a mask.
However, I recently started using The Body Shop’s BB Cream* and I’m hooked. Of course the workers at The Body Shop will tell you it’s a miracle cream and you don’t believe them… but it really is. It comes out of the tube white and then matches your skin tone as it goes on. The coverage is super light (you’ll need a concealer for those under-eye bags) and lasts all day. And it’s easy to wash off again with a face cloth.**
When I’m wearing the BB Cream it’s hardly noticeable – I look pretty much the same but with better skin – although people will often tell me that a colour I’m wearing looks good on me or that I’m looking really well rested.
Highly recommended. I use a tiny amount each day (probably about a pea size) and it’s the only foundation-type product that I’ve ever finished a tube of.
** In the highly likely event that you forget to wash it off at the end of the day then it won’t cause break outs.
