Dr Jart Bounce Beauty Balm ($58) is probably one of my favorite foundation releases of Fall 2014! This new “bounce” BB Cream isn’t your typical cushion BB Cream that we are currently seeing both in Asian and US releases! Dr Jart did a little something different with their formula and I’m LIKING it A LOT!
Let’s take a look at the Dr Jart Bounce Beauty Balm and see what I’m excited about!
Dr Jart Bounce Beauty Balm is a newly launched cushion-like BB Cream that’s available in two shade releases for Fall 2014. This isn’t your typical cushion makeup through as it’s actually a cream formulation with an elastic mesh covering that gives it a bounce-y feel. I’d like it to a molding clay of sorts and not the squishy sponges we’re seeing with many cushion makeup releases. The actual Beauty Balm seems to be a solid yet creamy texture and a soft mesh has been lain over it. As you press on it you’ll find it feels like the texture of Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush! The memory foam shape bounces back to shape after each use and contains a blend of polymers, collagen, and hyaluronic acid for lightweight coverage as well as SPF 30.
I think this releases just in time for Fall as the weather is starting to cool down and you might be looking for something a touch more long wearing and pigmented for your coverage this autumn. This is a very unique and innovative design compared to the many, many, many different cushion makeups I’ve featured on Musings of a Muse over the last few months. It still comes in a chunky compact that features a dual lid. The first levels opens to reveal the mirror and powder puff and another lid is found below the puff that seals closed to protect the Beauty Balm.
They created this formula with host of different ingredients to not only firm skin but to improve the elasticity of it and brighten it!
- Hyaluronic Acid: Hydrates skin and maintains skin’s elasticity.
- Hydrolyzed Marine Collage: Firms skin.
- Nordenau Water: Moisturizes.
- Pomegranate Extract: Improves skin elasticity.
- Grape Seed Oil: Brightens your complexion as it prevents aging.
- Elderberry: Prevents aging and increases elasticity.
- Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Doixde: Mineral sunscreen actives.
I find the texture creamy with a matte finish that doesn’t cling to my drier areas. It provides a smooth, flawless finish that brightens up my dull skin and provides a gorgeous, even finish. I have visible pores on my nose and this completely blurs their appearance so I can imagine what it could do for larger pores on your face if you have them. I find the coverage much heavier than what we have been seeing from It Cosmetics and Mally Beauty as this isn’t a fluid foundation but more of a creamy one plus it has far more coverage with a longer wear. I typically find that Dr Jart’s BB Creams are a little too pink for me but both the Light Medium and the Medium Dark fit me perfectly and adjusts well with a creamy beige base that had a cooler undertone but didn’t give me a pasty or chalky finish but merely brightened up my skin considerably. The wear is excellent too as I can get a solid seven hours of wear even on a warmer day without setting with powder. I have a good deal of favorite BB Cream formulas from Dr Jart but I must say the Bounce Beauty Balm tops my list! If you’re a sensitive user this is also happens to be free of artificial fragrances, parabens, mineral oil, and petroleum!
