Clarins Skin perfecting BB cream

I had a sachet sample of the Clarins BB cream and thought I'd try it out and give a little review on it.

It contains SPF 25 which is great. They say: BB Skin Perfecting Cream evens skin tone, revitalises and protects. 
I had the sample in medium and I found that it was a tad too dark and orange toned even for my NC30 skin tone. The consistency was a little richer than other BB creams but once blended out, it felt light on the skin. The coverage is really good for a BB cream which I really liked. It also lasted quite well on the skin. 
Overall, it's an excellent BB cream but I really didn't like the colour selection. It retails for £28.00 which is on the pricey side in comparison to other brands so I don't think I will be buying the full product. 

Which BB creams have you tried? I would love a good recommendation! 

I swatched it over the veins on my wrist so you can get an idea of the coverage.

  1. Great review! One of my personal favourites is the new Revlon Photoready BB Cream. Definitely give it a try! x

    1. Thanks I like Revlon in general so I'll definately give it a try! :) x

  2. This looks great I've never tried a bb cream but i might have to try this!

  3. I am more into CC cream than BB cream but this looks pretty good actually.
