Price and Where to buy?
You can purchase this at Superdrug and on their website www.sleekmakeup.com (link to the product). It's sold for €10.99 per tube. Available in 4 shades: fair, light, medium and dark.
I'm loving the packaging! The BB cream is filled in a black matte squeeze tube (50ml - 1.76 fl. oz.). It has a small opening, which means that you can determine how much BB cream may come out. Now that's a PLUS ;)!
Texture, Scent & Coverage
This Blemish Balm is scentless. It easily absorbs to the skin, makes your skin moist and it doesn't feel heavy at all! It has a creamy, slightly sticky texture and is medium thick, which makes it a little bit hard to spread and layer the BB cream. Although the texture is thick, the coverage is quite sheer. It won't be able to cover dark spots or acne scars etc.. However, it does work well for easing redness, evening out the skin, concealing minor issues and ease dullness or tired looking skin. This BB cream definitely brightenes up the complexion. It just makes the skin glow and it creates a really beautiful canvas for makeup.
I received the BB cream in the color FAIR, which is great for people between NC15-NC20 (this color is perfect for me!). It has a little bit of a grayish undertone but it isn't noticeable when you have the BB cream on. It instantly adapts to your own skin tone.
I just love scentless, moist and non-heavy BB creams. It's great that this cream protects the skin from harmful rays as well. Sleek Make Up's Blemish Balm eased my redness and evened out my skin tone. However, it didn't cover up my scars and freckles. The coverage is sheer and this cream is more suitable for people with a flawless looking skin or people who don't need much coverage.
I definitely noticed that this BB cream gave me a natural glow on my skin. I loved it when I first saw the effect! It brightened and eased my tired looking skin. I have a combination - dry skin so I thought that this BB cream would be suitable for me. However, after a few hours my face looked really OILY. This BB cream is probably a bit too moist for me. Some blotting papers would solve this problem, but this is the reason why I prefer matte BB creams =/.
This BB cream is more suitable for people with a dehydrated, dry or normal skin type and not for people with an oily skin type. Darn, I wish I had a normal skin type =(.
