long day's journey ♥

Hi everyone, how is your Thursday going? I've dressed a tad bit summery today so I'm slightly regretting it now - a white blazer and strap top isn't matching this weather at all...hurry up summer! I'm back on my healthy eating (again) and I've made cous cous, salmon and cucumber salad for lunch - although I'm not too sure if cous cous and salmon goes?! Anyway, for today's post I wanted to look at the Bourjois BB Cream 8 in 1 compact - as you all know, BB creams have been huge over the last year and to tell you the truth - I don't think I've really tried one before! So lets get to the basics - what is a BB cream? The BB cream originiated in the Korean area and the BB stands for Blemish Base or Blemish Balm. It's not actually a skincare product that focuses purely on spots though, it's an added feature that focuses on even skin tones.

This Bourjois BB Cream has 8 properties in the formula, including SPF 20, anti-ageing, anti-shine, targeted correction, perfecting, smoothing, long lasting hydration and anti fatigue. I applied it to my face a few hours ago and my skin looks incredibly sheer and fresh! :) Obviously my skin is naturally oily, so I always have to apply a sprinkling of powder over my t-zone, but the Bourjois palette is taking quite well to my skin. I've used my foundation brush, simply because I'm not a fan of sponges. I think the overall design of the compact is incredibly snazzy! ;) The mirror rotates around so you can see your face at whatever angle. Overall, I would say this compact gives medium coverage and will be perfect for the summer when you want a foundation free routine. Hope you're having a lovely afternoon girls, let me know if you've tried the Bourjois BB compact*

  7. This sounds great, and the mirror is a really good idea.
    I don't like sponges either though, so I'd prefer more product and no sponge..

    Jesss xo
