Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream Review & Swatches
Rejoice my fair of skin friends! Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream is your savior! I tried two shades in this BB Cream and I must say they run quite fair so if you’ve had a problem finding a paler BB Cream I’d recommend checking this out.
But don’t check it out just for the shades because this formula is well worth a rave! Jane Iredale did a stupendous job getting the concept of a BB Cream down perfectly.
Take a look!
Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream is a mineral based formula that protects skin with an SPF 25 that’s available in six shade selections.
I was a little worried when I read about this for the first time due to the name “glow time”. Seriously, when you combine glow and BB Cream together I tend to run. I have a fuller face so any foundation or BB Cream product that has a glow-y finish is a big no for me. However, I’m quite happy to report there is no glow here, only healthy, natural coverage.
This is one of the rare BB Creams I’ve run across that launched here in the US that actually has the creamy, thicker texture of a true Asian BB Cream. It offers sheer to medium coverage that’s buildable to full coverage. So it will act to diffuse the appearance of redness and dakrness while perfecting skin with an airbrushed appearance.
The creamy texture allows for easy application and it blends into skin beautifully with a satiny semi-matte formula that will be a pleasant experience for those with oily skin. Even though my own skin is dry this still offers smooth, even coverage without adhering to my drier areas.
I personally want a BB Cream that will perfect my skin and that’s exactly what this formula does. It creates a photo ready finish with a perfect canvas for other makeup products. Wear time is a solid twelve hours without oxidizing or fading.
Unfortunately the SPF is a little lower so I personally recommend using your own sunscreen prior with a higher level of protection so you can stay out doors longer (at this rate it’ll only be good for about 40 minutes of protection).
The shade selection does appear to run quite light. I tried BB5 which is a lighter peach with beige undertones and BB3 which is a creamy ivory with strong pink undertones.
BB3 and BB5
If you haven’t really wanted to venture into Asian BB Creams or you’ve tried them and haven’t found one fair enough for your skin I’d highly suggest checking Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream. This formula is ideal for paler skin and the formula is the closest I’ve seen to a true Korean BB Cream.
If you tried it, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
