Dr Jart+ Water Fuse BB Cream

I admit it. I’m the world’s worst beauty blogger when it actually comes down to wearing makeup. If I’m having a homebody day, not a scrap touches my face (unless it’s for review purposes, in which case I slap it on), and at weekends? Less is more in my mind. The Dr Jart+ Water Fuse BB Cream comes into play on the latter explained occasion. A layer of this topped up with some bronzer, mascara and a slick of lipbalm is me sorted over those two days and after a few months of this routine I couldn’t quite believe that I hadn’t dedicated an ode to it yet on these pages. BB Creams are a bit of a minefield and a marmite product for my tastes, but this ticks all the BB boxes…

Lighter coverage than say Laura Mercier’s Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser but a touch heavier than the other BB’s I’ve tried. I apply and pea-sized amount to the top of my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and blend away – glowy, glossy skin without the grease. I skip the powder and eight hours later it’s still doing its thing. This is one of four BB formulas from Dr Jart+ and their offering for oily skinned gals which contains a double trouble hit of skincare and coverage; the blueprint for BB’s. Oil-free with SPF, containing Aloe Leaf Juice to prevent moisture loss and anti-redness ingredients – all with a hint of tint. The one shade available does look deceivingly grey when it appears out of the tube but when applied I find it to work on both my paler and tanned up days. If Dr Jart+ could replicate this formula in a range of shades, they’d be on to an absolute stormer. Sort it out guyz.

As of this morning when I wrote this post snuggled up in my rather fetching pyjamas, Dr Jart+ was on offer with a third off at Boots; making a 50ml tube of this just £12. A bargain if I say so myself. I’m tempted to pick up another tube to add to the stock drawer for that price. For I ladies and gents, have found my BB.
