A couple of weeks ago I was blown away by the most generous package from the team at Physicians Formula. I have loved quite a few of their products in the past so I was thrilled to have so many more beauties to play with.
But, what should I start with?
As there were so many gorgeous products to try (and photograph) I decided to start with something that I could use straight away and photograph later.
Boy was I glad I started with the new Argan Oil BB cream. It is an absolute winner!
I have tried quite a few BB creams in the past and I haven’t been a fan of them. I usually find that they don’t offer much coverage and that the colour is completely wrong for my skintone. Not this one. It is perfect.
The coverage is similar to a medium coverage foundation and can be applied to the face with the fingers which makes it super quick to apply.
As with most foundation/base products I decided to trial it on the weekend so that if it didn’t perform I wasn’t at work unable to do anything to fix my face.
As soon as I applied it it was love at first sight. My slight pigmentation was covered, the pores refined and I was left with a beautiful even complexion.
As the name suggests, it is infused with Argan Oil which offers your skin a lovely moisture injection which means that it is perfect for those of us who have dry skin and love a more dewy finish.
After wearing it for a day I was pleased to notice that there had been no oxidisation and that the coverage was as good in the evening as it had been in the morning.
The next day I decided to wear it as my foundation. I always apply a powder to finish my makeup but instead of using a translucent powder I decided to use my Laura Mercier Mineral Powder.
OMG – the combination of the two was beautiful. The finely milled powder added a soft glow to my complexion that made my pores disappear and left my skin looking as though it had been airbrushed.
I had found my perfect weekend makeup and possibly my new favourite base combination.
I will definitely be considering taking these on our upcoming European trip as the Physicians Formula Argan Oil BB will be a perfect airplane companion for applying just before we arrive in Rome. I will be able to apply it quickly and add a swipe of blush, lippie and mascara and I should look reasonably presentable as this has been my ‘go to’ weekend look for the last few weeks.
