Revlon Photoready BB Cream Review & Swatches

I picked up Revlon Photoready BB Cream on Saturday and blogged it from my car. Revlon BB Cream? Yeah, I was excited.

I actually found it at Bed, Bath, and Beyond marked at a very reasonable $8.29. I was surprised as although BBB is part of Harmons, typically their prices are higher for some odd reason or another. $8.29 seems reasonable enough. I suspect once it hits the standard round of drugstores the price will range from $9.99-$11.99.

Having been very disappointed with Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream as well as other US BB Creams I haven’t pinned too many hopes on Revlon Photoready BB Cream.

What did I think?

Here’s a few thoughts!

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation BB Cream Spring 2013

Rimmel has a new BB Cream that launched earlier this Fall in the UK that’s available in Light and Medium shades.

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation BB Cream is a 9 in 1 formula that primes, mattifies, moisturizers, minimizes the appearance of pores, conceals blemishes, and protects with an SPF 25.

It looks like the newer drugstore BB Creams are stepping up their SPF as Revlon’s new BB Cream has an SPF 30 and now this with an SPF 25. Excellent! Hopefully they turn out more pigmented than the more recent releases.

This will prob launch shortly here in the US but it is already available on ASOS.com for around $13.

I’ll be sure to update as it becomes available in our market!

Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Moisture Cleansing Foam Wash Review

Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Moisture Cleansing Foam Wash is my newest cleanser obsession. I have this thing for foaming cleansers. I’m not really sure where the obsession stems from but I find foaming cleaners so damn fun. We really don’t have a ton of foaming cleansers in the US but Japan and much of Asia embraces them wholeheartedly.

One of the first foaming cleanser loves was Kose Airy Whip. To this day I still use and love it with all my heart!  But I’m willing to cheat on it sometimes!

Sana actually just introduced their Aqua Placenta Collection, much of it I reviewed for you already! However, this cleanser just passed by my desk recently and I def had to try it out for size.
