Biotherm Aquasource BB Cream

Geared towards dry skin types and dull complexions comes this BB Cream from popular skincare brand Biotherm and is my absolute favourite at present. Now I usually reserve BB creams for wear at home when I'm not going out or on lazy weekends. I mean I have decent skin but am just so used to doing a full face with foundation that it's almost impossible to break the habit. Hence this time around, I've found a new use for this particular BB cream. Because of it's super hydrating properties (apparently hydrates 5 layers of the epidermis), thin texture and translucent finish, it makes such a gorgeous dewy primer and day moisturiser.





I mean if you take good care of your skin on a daily basis, you really don't need a treatment moisturiser, especially before make-up application. I personally reserve my treatment creams for the night. Hence it makes such a beautiful, light weight, radiant primer that is superbly hydrating on my combination-dehydrated skin type. 

The glow it leaves on the skin is quite film like in the sense that it doesn't leave out any area on the face that isn't dewy looking, making it appear like you've just come back from a spa day. Now I do love my dewy skin and have a selection of products that can achieve that result but this is by far the best glow (is there anything like that?) I have ever seen on my skin. 




I can definitely see those with dry, dehydrated, mature skin who are always looking for brightening products loving this baby. I love the fact that it contains an SPF of 15 as we all know we can be a little lazy when it comes to protecting the skin from the sunlight. It has very low coverage but fortunately I have good skin as of now so I only need a little bit of concealer under the eyes and au naturale it is. Although it doesn't cover up much, I feel it has this evening out effect where skin somehow looks more uniform after application. Not sure how it does that but it does so thumbs up for that!

On the whole, a great product for holidays, beaches, road trips, festivals where it can double up as an SPF and tinted moisturiser making you look like a Victoria's Secret Angel. What? One can dream and try.
