Kiehls Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream Review & Swatches
Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream ($37) recently launched in four shades. Kiehl’s BB Cream definitely seems to have a skin loving formula that’s paraben, mineral oil, fragrance, and silicone-free. And let’s not forget this formula addresses a whole host of concerns like dark spots, improving skin texture and tone as well as the appearance of imperfections while providing moisture.
It seems like exactly the BB Cream formula you’d want combining all the elements of a good skincare with your makeup.
Take a look!
Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream formula begins with a highly acidic vitamin C combined with natural mineral pigments that results in a stable, gentle, yet effective formula for correcting skin tone while offering natural coverage with a high SPF 50.
This is not really a creamy, thicker textured of an Asian BB Cream but more of a gel foundation formula. It’s a thicker gel consistency with a soft, gel-like texture that absorbs into skin leaving it feeling hydrated while perfecting already good skin. It’s lightweight enough that the coverage is very breathable and lightweight for Summer or warmer weather wear. It evens out skin ton and perfects already good skin for a brighter more flawless appearance however, it does run sheerer so it won’t conceal major problems. My skin actually went from duller and lackluster to having more of a healthy, brighter appearance upon application. It leaves behind a dewy finish and leaves my drier skin nicely hydrated after use. Wear time seems fairly good which surprised me as typically moisturizing foundations wear away fairly fast on my skin. This wore a solid six hours with some minor fading in hour seven.
Kiehl’s has a range of studies which show that in four weeks this improved the brightness of skin, the hydration, overall skin appearance and imperfections, as well as smoothness. I’ve only been using in for about four or five days so I can’t speak for these results as of yet. I will say I love how moisturizing it is thanks to the glycerin in the formula.
But it isn’t the type of moisture that feels heavy or greasy nor does it leave my skin looking shiny. I also adore the fact it contains such a high level of Vitamin C. If I’m going to be wearing coverage daily why not have something that aids in brightening my skin through the wear?
Light and Medium
And finally the high level SPF 50 aids in protecting my skin from the sun!
Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream is worth exploring. It isn’t a traditional BB Cream formula but it has all the skin loving ingredients of one and provides the perfect coverage for Summer. If you like gel foundation products that provide moisture you’ll likely love this.
The combination of coverage, sun protection, and a great texture make for a very interesting BB Cream formula!
