Today it'll be part seven of my Drugstore BB Cream Series. To see the parts that came before, just click here. My mum and I tested out all nine BB creams available in the UK drugstores and if you'd like to see more about our skin types, just click here.
Today, I'm writing about the Superdrug BB Cream (£8.99). I got it in the shade Light.
Shade range: Two shades, Light and Medium.
SPF: 15. UVA/UVB.
Packaging: 50ml. This BB creams comes in a matte white and pink squeezy tube with a flat nozzle. It's quite feminine and reminded me of Maybelline Dream Fresh. The nozzle and consistency meant that quite a lot come out at once (as you can see in the below photos).
Claims: Paraben free. This is the only BB Cream I reviewed that is BUAV approved. It says it will enhance skin tone, provide 24 hour hydration and antioxidant protection, while concealing imperfections. It contains Vitamin C, caffeine and hyaluronic acid.
Formula: This has a medium consistency, and smelled very strongly of SPF. Both my mum and I applied with our fingers. Neither of us experienced any irritation and it blended very easily. It felt greasy to apply, like sunscreen, and my mum found it felt tacky all day.
The shade was very dark for a Light cream. It was very yellow, and my mum felt she looked a little jaundiced. It did even my skintone, and covered some of my redness, but not my pores or freckles. It didn't catch on any of my dry patches.
I quite liked the finish but it did feel tacky for a while and looked oily on my nose.
I applied this at 11.30am. by the 6 hour mark there was shine, especially on my nose and undereyes fo some reason. By the 8 hour mark it was faded and a bit shiny on the nose and chin.
