Since the summer has finally arrived I’ve been wanting to use more lightweight makeup than I usually do, so I figured I’d give this a go and see how it went, and so far I think this is great.
It is very lightweight, like a BB cream should be, but this does also provide enough coverage to even out my skintone, and cover most of my imperfections.
But what I like most about this is that it doesn’t feel greasy like most other BB cream type products I’ve tried before, and at the same time it doesn’t look dry. (I would say it has a natural finish)

Now, I did try to use it on it’s own, with no primer or powder, and it did start to get a bit shiny in my t-zone after about 3-4 hours, and I also noticed that it did fade on my forehead, so I would say that you do need to set it with a powder, or a settingspray, but once I did that it lasted all day, it didn’t look shiny before the 6-7 hour mark, and it didn’t settle into any lines or pores, so I do have to say that this holds up to it’s claims quite well.
And I do like that it has an SPF of 35 in it, even though I do wear a sunscreen underneath it as well.

Other than that I do think that it applies nicely with your fingers, but it’s also easy to apply with a sponge (I haven’t tried it with a brush).
It’s easy to blend out, and you can also build it up a little if you have any areas that you feel like you need a bit more coverage.
So I do think that this is worth the money if you’re looking for something easy and lightweight to throw on in the summer months.

I got mine from Kicks for 280nok.
