I did it, I finally gave in to the hype! I woke up one morning and knew I would buy it. I walked into Superdrug, spent a good 15 minutes deciding which colour I should get, while breaking to try a few new MUA products. Then I picked it up, paid (of course) then left feeling actually quite excited...
The first thing I noticed on the tube was the clear emphasis on how this was a ‘Miracle’ cream. Not that I’m going to argue, I think it may be a slight exaggeration but there is no doubt it’s a great product.
I’ve probably used it every day since I got it and I love it! It’s a little bit heavier than a tinted moisturiser but a little lighter than a foundation. It covers just enough to even out the skin tone but it still reveals freckles, of which I have many. Although I still need to use a concealer to hide the bags and blemishes but I wasn’t expecting a miracle. There is a small negative, it’s a bit too dark. I like myself a bit of fake tan so it’s not really an issue for me but for anyone with pale skin it might be a good idea to shop around for a lighter colour, as I did get buy the lightest shade and I found it had a bit of an orange tone.

As it is, I’m using this as a primer. It evens out my skin tone and provides a good base for my foundation. I find in the winter I prefer more coverage, I feel like my skin gets a bit dull and pale so I feel more confident wearing a bit more foundation. In the summer however, my face gets browner and I’m covered in freckles, which I love, so I prefer a tinted moisturiser.
I understand the hype around this cream but I can’t say I won’t shop around and try a few others, but I can’t imagine the daily routine without it. BB Creams for the win!!
