When it comes to make-up, in particular, I'm a firm believer that Estee Lauder is one of the best labels you can buy.
Sure, it's a little bit pricier than your average cosmetics brand, but you get what you pay for. You get a quality product that lasts a long time.
I'd heard good things about the new Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Cream, so I decided to try it and see what all the fuss is about!
Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Cream - Estee Lauder - £29 (buy yours HERE)
I have to admit, this is the first BB Cream I have bought into. I didn't really know what BB Cream was before.
For those who are still unaware, BB Cream is one of the latest crazes to sweep the UK beauty market. BB stands for 'beauty balm' and is a cross between a primer/concealer/foundation/tinted moisturiser. It can even out skintone, act as a base for foundation, hydrate your skin like a tinted moisturiser and also cover any blemishes.
This Estee Lauder BB Cream describes itself as 'moisture make-up', providing your skin with hydration and giving it an 'all-day glow', as well as protecting it from the sun with SPF 30.
I apply mine with clean fingers, making sure I cover all aspects of my face using a light layer.
I have to say - it's amazing!
I've struggled with my blemish-prone, red, patchy skin for years - but Estee Lauder's BB Cream hides all of these flaws.
It brightens my complexion, evens out my skintone and covers up my spots, but still feels super lightweight and moisturising.
It doesn't shift after an eight hour day in the office and, once I remove my face for the day, I don't have to worry about more spots surfacing from clogged pores due to caked-on foundation. The BB Cream contains Vitamin E and Vitamin C, so I can be reassured that my skin is getting well looked after, even though I'm wearing make-up! How brilliant is that?
The Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Cream comes in different shades, so you'll be sure to find one that suits your skintone.
I was a little dubious, before purchasing, that this BB Cream wouldn't live up to the hype. Well, I needn't have worried! It's fabulous and I couldn't recommend it more.
