Cream of the crop

30 May

I’m the first to admit I’m not a pretty sight in the mornings. If there’s one thing I try to avoid, it’s facing the world without my make up. I really dislike the way my skin looks without foundation. It is dull, I have freckles and my skin tone is uneven.
But now I’ve discovered BB Cream, running out out of foundation is not the nightmare it once was.
I’ve been using Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream for the past few weeks and I love how it transforms my skin. It gives me an instant fresh faced glow, so it can be used for those mornings I’m running late and can’t afford the time to apply my usual make up or as a primer to enhance my foundation.
The gel based formula has not just the two benefits mentioned above, it also compliments skin tone, blurs imperfections, is non-greasy, looks smooth, hydrates, feels fresh and offers SPF 30 UV protection.
Plus to get all of these benefits, only a thin layer is required so my 30ml tube should hopefully last a few months, even with everyday use.
I honestly don’t know where I’d be without this product anymore. I actually look forward to putting it on in the morning as it totally transforms my face.


The cream leaves flawless skin when applied as a primer before foundation – perfect for nights out.


BB Creams seem to be everywhere at the moment and I think I’ll experiment with different brands to see if there is any difference (apart from price).
Dream Fresh BB Cream is available in four shades: light, universal glow, medium and dark.
It costs £7.99 from Boots (3 for 2 offer currently on Maybelline products).
