Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream is another of my top BB Creams. I’m trying to review BB Creams that get a lot of airtime in my stash and not so much ones that sit around unused and unloved.
This isn’t the best BB Cream in the world mine you but it is one I tend to reach for a lot. It has a fairly large cult following with some folks absolutely adoring it and others not really feeling the love.
Of course, as I mentioned before, BB Creams are a super personal experience. You have to try a ton to find your perfect formula and shade.
Let’s take a peek at the Aloe Sun one and see what’s so great about it.
Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream comes in two shade selections however even the second shade is quite light. I use Shade 2 myself and it’s a fairly good fit since the product is a but sheerer than other BB Creams I own, don’t let that fool you though as it has plenty of coverage to conceal problem areas while perfecting skin.
Shade two is a creamy paler beige with pink undertones. The shade is pretty pale but it does adjust accordingly once applied however a little pastiness is noticeable if too much is applied. However, since it runs a little sheerer I seem to get away with it and it looks very natural.
I find the SPF 20 a bit disappointing but I typically apply a separate SPF prior to any makeup so I’m not sure I entirely mind the lack of protection here. However, it proves crummy if you’re relying on your BB Cream to provide the longest and best SPF.
This contains aloe extract for a soothing, hydrating effect. For my drier skin, the creamy texture is extra moisturizing. It applies smoothly and blends seamlessly into a lightweight finish that evens out my skin tone while easing dullness. Pigmentation should hide redness, dullness, and dark spots if you have them however it isn’t as pigmented as other BB Creams so if you have major issues you’re wanting to conceal or if you want your BB Cream to act as a concealer under your eyes you might find Aloe Sun a little lacking.
I find the finish soft and smooth with an airbrushed like appearance and the hydrating formula doesn’t accentuate my drier areas but acts as more as a cover for them so my skin looks moist and healthy even when it’s busy being dry and/or flaky.
As with most BB Creams I’ve tried, it has a solid wear time and doesn’t oxidize or fade away quickly so I can get through my day without touching up while remaining flawless.
Overall, Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream is a solid choice if you want basic in your BB. This provides fairly good coverage in a soft, creamy formula. However, it does lack solid sun protection as well as many ingredients that would make it a multifunction BB Cream such as anti-aging, brightening, and whitening ingredients.
It’s one of my favorites because I enjoy the lighter texture and hydrating feel that never, ever looks over done and always feels and looks fresh. As if I’m not wearing makeup at all!
