I imagine you’re thinking that the newly launched Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm is a dupe for Jergens BB Body Perfect Skin Cream which is why I decided to do comparisons of the two. I think it’s the first thing that popped into my head when I saw that Urban Decay had launched a “Body BB Cream”. Strangely enough it was the budget brand that started the trend with the higher end following behind on it. Typically we see a big trend pop up for a product and a month to several months later you’ll start seeing similiar style products at the drugstore.
Not the case here.
Jergens was the first company to market a BB Cream for your body and Urban Decay followed close behind. I imagine as we head into Summer we are going to see MORE and more and more brands embracing this trend.
So here’s a comparison of Jergen’s version and Urban Decay’s.
Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm ($32) is an upcoming Body BB Cream that will be added to the Urban Decay Naked Skin Collection of products with a new Summer Collection entitled Summer Nights. I know, I know you’re probably think, “Oh a dupe of Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream!” but the two products are vastly different and I’ll do comparison swatches for you shortly.
Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm is formulated to tighten skin as well as blur the appearance of flaws giving skin a smoother, firmer, more radiance finish.
Urban Decay Illuminating Naked Beauty Balm will be launching shortly with the Urban Decay Summer Nights Summer 2014 Collection. This BB Cream is a follow up to Urban Decay’s original Naked Skin Beauty Balm that launched for Spring 2013.
Although not a traditional BB Cream the original formula impressed me. You do have to keep an open mind with Urban Decay Illuminating Naked Beauty Balm because this nor does the original formula actually offer the coverage of a more traditional fully pigmented Asian BB Cream.
This new formula actually adds radiance to skin. The texture is pretty much identical to the original but the shade is very slightly darker and it has fine silver shimmer.
