I’m a self confessed foundation fiend. As I’ve always suffered with somewhat problematic skin, I love how foundation can give the illusion of perfect skin. BB creams became all the rage a few years ago, yet most of the ones I tried were greasy and offered little coverage. Then, with a No7 money off voucher burning a hole in my pocket I spotted the No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream, and thought I’d give it a go. The first thing I liked about it was that there were different options for all skin types, and a decent SPF 15 with 5star UVA protection- perfect for everyday use.
I apply this with my fingers, and it smoothes on to give a nice light coverage, blurring imperfections and redness. Combined with a little bit of concealer where its needed, this gives the perfect ‘natural skin’ look. At first it does have a somewhat ‘sticky’ feel on my skin, but that goes away after a few minutes. I set with powder and this usually wears well for 6 or 7 hours before I notice it starting to wear off on my oily chin. I do often feel like I still look a bit shiny, even with powder, so that’s great if you prefer a dewy finish, but this isn’t good if you’re more of a matte look kinda girl. The lightweight plastic tube is great for travel, and at €17.50 for a generous 40ml its not gonna break the bank, its even better when you have one of the money off vouchers Boots are always handing out! I’d definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a base product that’s quick and easy to apply in the morning and leaves a natural finish.
