Clinique Age Defense BB Cream in Shade 03
When did you first try it?
3 months ago, I read about the BB Cream craze in a magazine, and the perks of the product were too good to pass up. So I went to the Clinique counter at Macy’s and snatched the right BB to match my skin. I had just come back from vacation, so the 03 shade is my summer shade. It also has an SPF of 30, which alleviates me from having to put on sunscreen separately (but you are more than welcome to do so).
Where can you get it:
A Clinique counter at Macy’s or Nordstrom, Clinique.com
Lately, my face has been breaking out. My main problem has been around the chin, where these pesky blemishes have been popping up. I decided to look for a change from my normal HD foundation to something lighter that won’t clog my pores. BB Cream comes into play here because it is a moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock all in one. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, as a regular foundation, or under powder, depending how much coverage your are looking for. This particular product is great because when I’m on the go and want to transition from daytime to evening, it takes just the swipe of a brush.
I tried using a sponge to apply the cream, but it’s no bueno! Try to use a mineral or liquid foundation brush to apply the cream. It goes on much smoother and the brush doesn’t cause the dry zones to flake up. Also, be sure you apply it evenly; although it is not a normal foundation, it still has color and could look a little streaky if not applied properly. Then you’ll be ready to strut your stuff!
Try it and let us know what you think!
