| Review | Bali Body BB Cream SPF 15

Listen, I'm a sucker for a good BB cream because I love a natural looking complexion and I'm all about the healthy glow. When Bali Body approached me about reviewing some of their products, I had to choose their BB Cream. 

BB Creams were made popular when these hybrid complexion products came over from Korea. BB Creams are a mixture of foundation, skincare, and primer. This all in one product helps simply your daily routine but it also helps treat your skin while you wear it. 

The Bali Body BB Cream SPF 15 retails for $29.95 and is available at Bali Body. This BB Cream comes in a beautiful squeezable rose gold tube. The packaging is so great for traveling and really helps you control the amount of product being distributed. 



SHADES

The BB Cream comes in 4 shades: Fair, Natural, Tan, and Dark. I'm a NC30-35 and my shade is Tan, which is touch more tan than my skin because it is winter I am a bit lighter. However, the BB Cream formula is very forgiving and it blends very seamlessly into my skin. Here is the color guide from their site for those of you who are looking for a match: 

FAIR SHADE: Skin type: For fair to light skin with neutral tone // Coverage: sheer-to-medium // Finish: Glowing with a matte finish.
NATURAL SHADE: Skin type: For light to medium skin with neutral tone // Coverage: sheer-to-medium // Finish: Glowing with a matte finish.
TAN SHADE: Skin type: For medium to tan skin with neutral tone // Coverage: sheer-to-medium // Finish: Glowing with a matte finish.
DARK SHADE: Skin type: For tan to dark skin with neutral tone // Coverage: sheer-to-medium // Finish: Glowing with a matte finish.

FORMULA 

This formula contains green tea and ginseng, which are both loaded with antioxidants, which rejuvenates the skin, helps prevent signs of aging, and helps fight free radical damage. Additionally, the caffeine from green tea tightens and awakens the skin. Green teas is also an antibacterial ingredient so it helps prevent breakouts. This product also contains marine collagen, which if you know me,  this is one of my favorite skincare ingredients! Marine collagen is an amazing anti-aging ingredient that helps stimulate the synthesis of collagen and help with the elasticity of your skin. Over time, it really helps plump and firm your skin. Finally, one of the other big ingredients in this BB Cream is hyaluronic acid, which helps retain moisture in your skin throughout the day and makes you skin look healthy and plump. There is also SPF 15 in this product, which is nice for everyday use and light sun exposure. 



Here is the full ingredients list:


Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Cyclohexasiloxane, Tapioca Starch, Cetearyl Alcohol, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Cetearyl Olivate, Glycerin, Sorbitan Olivate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Butylene Glycol, Marine Collagen, Polysorbate 20, Fragrance (Parfum), Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Benzyl Alcohol, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides.
Actives: Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Benzophenone-3, Octocrylene.
The formula is a light gel-cream texture, it feels more gel-like as you work it into the skin. It is very blendable until it's fully worked into the skin, then it is semi-set. You will still feel some texture on the skin but for the most part it is part of the skin and doesn't move. What is nice about this formula is that you don't need to set the BB Cream unless you want to. It isn't transfer-proof however, you can apply other face products like bronzer and blush without moving the base underneath. 

FINISH 

The finish is very natural, not dewy but naturally luminous. My skin looks perfected and healthy but because the finish isn't too glowing, it doesn't get greasy looking throughout the day. While it doesn't control or prevent oil, oils from the skin don't breakthrough as easily and make you look greasy. The formula is long-lasting and lasts for 8 hours without breaking down or fading. I love the fresh and healthy glow that it provides without any shimmer or additional oils. It makes for a great everyday base. This will work for most skin types and if you are very oily, I recommend an additional oil-controlling primer prior to applying this BB Cream. 



FINAL THOUGHTS 

This is a beautiful BB Cream! It does everything you'd want and expect from a product like this. It hydrates, treats, covers, protects, and adds a healthy glow to your skin! I love a quick and easy all-in-one product like this. It makes it so easy to get ready on a daily basis because this BB Cream has everything you need in it and it blends very quickly into the skin but it also lasts all day without any touchups. This BB Cream has become my everyday base and it is also perfect for travel. If you are looking for a quality BB Cream with a luminous but natural finish, you'll love this!
