I've found it. My holy grail face product. The BB cream that makes my heart sing. It is here, and its name? Dior Nudeskin BB Cream.

There has been a lot of praise and a lot of negativity swirling around this product, so I'm going to stick to the must-knows and tell you exactly what I found, on my skin. For reference - I have normal to combination skin, my main issues are a little redness around the nose/cheek area, and during summertime a little pore visibility around those areas. I also sometimes get little tiny bumps on my forehead. Sexy.
Product used: Dior Nudeskin BB cream, shade 002.

Price: £30. A little steep for a BB cream, I think.

Packaging:
I love. It looks very sleek, chic and feels young without losing any feeling of luxury. Love the matte finish of the bottle, feels nice in your hands (is that weird?!).

Skincare benefits:
I'm still a little sketchy. It feels moisturizing upon first application, but within moments sinks into skin (one of the nicest things about it), so I don't feel it actively working on the condition of my skin, although nothing about this product broke me out or caused sensitivity, redness etc.

Application:
Easy as pie. I'm a make-up dummy so please trust me when I say it couldn't be simpler. Around a 10p sized amount is good for my whole face/blending into neck, with a couple of extra tiny squeezes if I need to build up coverage in some areas. I apply it with my fingers because it feels like I have more control that way - feels a lot more like a cream than a liquid - something like Le Teint Touche Eclat for example is a lot more 'runny'. Sinks in fairly quickly after application to weightlessness.

Coverage:
Blends into the skin beautifully and leaves a very light coverage. Evens out skin tone without changing your skintone (one of my bigger 'concerns', if you can call that a concern).

Finish:
Dewy/radiant. I lean towards dry skin, but felt the need to powder this into place with a translucent powder on a particularly hot day, so my oily-skinned gals might want to take heed of that.

Staying Power:
I've worn this from 10 AM to 10 PM with very little touching up needed, just a little concealer under the eyes, and I think that has more to do with my concealer than the BB cream. It lasts beautifully and within 15 to 20 minutes of applying it feels as though there's nothing on your face. An hour after application my boyf came home from work and at the door (as soon as I saw him) told me how great my skin looked. It kind of has that effect. A lot of the reviews online mentioned the product oxidizing on some skins to quite an orange/yellow colour, but that didn't happen to me and hasn't any time I've worn it. Something to be aware of, though.

Overall:
A beautiful, lightweight face product for summer (I feel in winter I'll be heading back to my Le Teint), for those of us with fewer skin concerns, I feel. Or if you're having a 'good skin day'. Gives you a natural glow and radiance. Sure, the cost is a little steep, but I'd pay it again happily. Very nearly 10. I just feel like I shouldn't give it all away upfront. 9/10.
I hope you enjoyed this review and that it was informative! Let me know in the comments if you'd like to see more reviews, and if you enjoyed the format. Also - do let me know if you go out and try the BB cream! As you can tell, I'm pretty much in love...

  1. I would love to try this BB cream out! My problem though, is acne scarring so I would have to find a good concealer to go with it probably! But i shall definitely give it a try after reading your review. :)

    1. Aw thanks for commenting Isabella! Coverage is definitely buildable but if your acne scarring is something you're really conscious of you might want to pop a concealer on as well just for peace of mind. I'd suggest the NARS Creamy Concealer if you can get your hands on it, or a Bobbi Brown one! Thanks so much for reading. T x
