Review: No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream

The No7 vouchers from Boots always make me feel like I need to use them and I always end up buying a tonne of new bits because the savings are so good not to miss out! I love the brand and 9/10 I will love whatever I buy from them and this had been on my wish list for a while.

I picked up the shade fair which is a bit too orange for me but I can just about get away with it at the moment but it’s worth mentioning because if you are even fairer than me then this will more than likely be too dark for you.

Other than the colour I do really like it, I got the normal/oily version and it does a good job at controlling my oily patches without enhancing my dry patches. It’s quite moisturising, I noticed my skin looks a lot more hydrated when I was using this and it didn’t break me out.

The coverage is pretty light, it is considerably lighter than the Skin79 BB Cream and the consistency is slightly wetter so it really does feel as if I’m wearing no make up. It does a good job at evening out my skin tone it’s just no as good at hiding blemishes so I did find I had to just a concealer with this unlike Skin79 where I can almost always get away with just building it on areas that need a little extra covering.

I do like this I just wish it was a little less orangey. It’ll probably be okay when I’m tanned but this will definitely be too dark for the winter months which is a shame and I do feel as though it’s more like a tinted moisturiser rather than a BB Cream.

It retails at just over £12 but with a £5 off voucher it’s worth giving a go!
