REN Satin Perfection BB Cream

18 March 2015

Holy Grail product right here! This is the second tube of the REN BB Cream I have got through and I predict I'll keep using this forever. Really obsessed with this BB Cream! I've done a mini review of this before but I wanted to go into much more detail in a post of it's own.

This for me is a daily essential! It's the perfect go between of a foundation and a tinted moisturiser. The formula is very creamy and smooth which I love. On first application it does apply a little chalky and you get a little scared as it appears quite white, but in a blink of an eye, all white chalkiness has gone and it is just magically blended seamlessly into your skin! Amazing! I haven't found a brush or a technique that this doesn't apply well with, it buffs in like a dream! 

Like I said the formula just blends seamlessly with your skin, for texture and colour. It isn't that dark in the tube at all (it's a Light/Medium shade) and I think it will work for most skin tones except those very porcelain and very dark toned skins. I don't know how it matches so well to my skin tone, it use does. It has lovely coverage, not too heavy or thick but not too light and thin either, just good natural coverage. It really evens out skin texture, tone and balances out the areas of redness or pigmentation. For really serious blemishes I do layer a little more on but you really don't have to use much at all.
The finish is a lovely matt but slightly satin finish, very smooth and even, very natural 'no makeup' makeup.

This BB Cream lasts all day for me and it's only really at the end of the day when my oily patches start to break through. In the heat it doesn't slide or smudge or go patchy and there is little build up and creasing of product in areas such as around my nose that I often get with foundations.
Like I said it's a good one to layer and build up if you want  little heavier coverage without a cake face. It gives a very natural look and finish and I have no trouble applying powder or cream blushes over the top. 
It doesn't really need a finishing powder but I like to use a light translucent powder if I feel my skin is amore oily than normal just to give it super staying power.

This BB Cream also boasts SPF 15, UVA and UVB protection. Ideal for skin that doesn't want too many layered products while still being protected. The smell is also a total triumph as it smells really fruity, slightly peachy or apricoty. Lovely. 

Yes the price (£28 for 50ml) is expensive, but I think incredibly worth it. Definitely a re-purchase product! 
I just pray that the handling by Unilever wont effect this product or the brand in any way at all! That would be terrible.
