Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB Review & Swatches
Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB is an interesting new BB Cream from the brand that features a bounce-y texture that just makes you want to sit around and play with it.
I was tempted to make a little video featuring it as I wanted you to see the texture in as true to life medium as possible. The thing is, the bb cream, almost has a life its own. Seriously! It’s ALIVE! You can pop a finger in it, scrap some off the top, place a brush in it, and after a few seconds to a minute it’ll “grow” over and become fresh and new again. It’s odd! We have to be careful, it might take over the universe at some point!
The unique jelly texture of this BB Cream is definitely worth a trip to your local Sephora just to play with it if not to buy. It comes in a smallish round container and has a jello-like look and texture. If you tap it or poke it, it’ll wriggle! If you scrap some of it off with the included spatula or poke a finger in it or do anything to upset the smooth finish it’ll basically reshape itself, back to it’s original form, within a few seconds. I can seriously spend hours messing around with it just to watch it “regrow” as I’ve taken to calling it.
The bounce-y texture isn’t the only fab thing about this. It sports an SPF 30, is available in a Light Medium and Medium Dark shade selection (the original BB Cream launch from Dr Jart only came in one shade), and it features a formula that’s extremely hydrating.
The dewy finish will get a welcome from those with dry skin but might prove too much for those with oily skin so you might want to test in store prior to a full purchase if your skin type is oily. I find it has a sheerer finish in comparison to some of Dr Jart’s other BB Cream offerings but it still manages to even out skin tone, ease dullness, and perfect skin while keeping it fresh and moist through the wear. The shorter wear time I experienced was a disappointment as I only got about two to three hours of wear before it faded away on me but aside from that I enjoyed how easily it blended and how nicely it looked on my skin.
Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB is an interesting product to say the least. A little more wear time and it would be damn near perfect for me plus fun to use (I could spend hours just poking at it and watching it reshape). If you like sheerer coverage with a natural, flawless finish I’d recommend trying it out especially for those with drier skin.
It’s available now at Sephora and Sephora.com
