My thoughts on Loreal BB C’est Magic
I really love BB creams. I am not that into foundations since I do tend to think that foundations in general is too much product for me. And I really do like a natural look to my skin.
My skin is quite good, I don’t have acne or scars. But I do have some discolorations due to sun, and redness, and wrinkles. So for me a natural look just suits me better. If there is some redness or uneven skin that shows threw, I simply don’t care. If my skin were to look flawless I simple would not like the look.
I also have super dry skin. And I really mean super dry. There are not many products that can make my skin feel amazing all day. And I don’t expect this one to do so either.
When I was looking at this product before buying it. A lot of people were saying that the color is rather dark. I decided to go for medium light, since I felt that is normally what I need. I also have yellow undertones so I do expect this shade to be right for me.
Looking at the range of shades there are 6 shades to choose from, but I do recommend you to try it out to see what shade you are before buying it.
The packaging is nice and simple. It comes in a regular tube and there is nothing weird or amazing about it. But I do like it.
The BB cream is super liquid and lightweight, so it is easy to get too much product out. But just bare that in mind when squeezing the tube. Sadly it is really strongly scented. And it smells perfumy, which is really something I hate. The scent does linger for quite some time on my skin as well.
When you first squeeze the product out, it is white. But as soon as you apply it to your face it turns into skin color. When you have a product like this you really need to apply it with your fingers and not a brush or a sponge. This due to that the warmth of you hands simply activates the color pigments in the cream.
I have read a few reviews were people say that this product is too white and often the problem is the way that they apply it. When using a brush or a sponge you really don’t get that warmth that the product needs to turn into a skin shade.
When reading the instructions on the products, it also states to use your fingers to apply it.
As a color match it is ok, but it is a little dark on my skin. During the summer time it matches me great but during winter I will have to use a lighter shade to get it to work.
The cover is light and if you need a product to cover imperfections in your skin. This is not a product for you. But since my skin is quite ok I really don’t want a high coverage product. The light cover of Loreal BB C’est Magic suits me and the result looks really natural on my skin.
After I have applied it, my skin feels really nice but after a few hours my skin feels dry. This product doesn’t claim to be moisturizing so I wouldn’t expect it to be. Instead I use a moisturizing primer to get it to work for me. But I do have to add moisture during the day so my skin doesn’t feel uncomfortable. If you have the same problem as me I really recommend using a facial mist during the day just to get that satisfying feeling of moisturized skin.
Loreal BB C’est Magic lasting power is good on my skin. If you have oilier skin I would really recommend using a primer underneath. This due to that you might experience this to be too moisturizing instead.
But as an overall basic BB cream I find it to be really nice. It isn’t one of my favorites, since I do prefer my Korean BB creams over all. But if you are looking for a budget friendly BB cream that is easy to get your hands on, this might be an option for you.
I give this product 5/7
