As a beauty blogger who tests a lot of skincare, I'm used to regimens that take multiple steps. I'm also constantly trying to walk the line of finding products that are nourishing to my aging skin, but don't exacerbate my oily, blemish-prone skin. Forlan BB Cream is a one-step product that moisturizes, has anti-aging properties, and leaves my skin smooth and ready for makeup - and no breakouts!
"BB Cream" isn't a standardized term, and can mean anything from a moisturizer to a foundation. At the minimum, it is supposed to enhance the skin and lay a foundation for makeup. Forlan's BB Cream is a silicone-based primer, infused with natural anti-aging ingredients like sweet cherry, raspberry, and strawberry extracts, aloe vera, and vitamins A and E.
The BB Cream itself is thick, but applies easily. There's no fragrance, and no color. It disappears into the skin, but leaves a smooth, almost blurred finish that has been working really well with my current foundation of choice, Laura Geller's Baked Radiance liquid foundation.
What I really like about pairing the Forlan BB Cream with this foundation is that the foundation has a 'radiance' or glow to it, but the primer keeps my oily skin from making it look too shiny or greasy. It doesn't make my skin look or feel truly matte - it's more of a satin finish, I think. I feel more confident wearing bold highlight, too.
