Sanctuary Spa BB Cream – The Minted Blog

posted in: ZERO WASTE | 0

The Sanctuary Spa Brightening Facial Skin Perfecting BB Cream in Light Medium (RRP $29.99) is available at Priceline, and is perfect for a light coverage tint on the skin, or to use as a base for your everyday foundation. It was the Winner of Best Life Changing Product by Fabulous Beauty Awards in 2012, and is still a great BB Cream by 2016 standards. It has SPF 15 to ensure some protection from UV rays, and has an amazing scent to boot.

To use, simply swap your regular daily moisturiser with this BB Cream, by applying a pea-sized amount to cleansed, dry skin. The shade of this BB Cream is perfect for my skin, but I can’t see this being a ‘one size fits all product’. This will most likely pull orange on pale complexions, and would be far too light for most medium tones. Luckily for deeper complexions, there is also a Medium/Dark tone available.

While this doesn’t mask imperfections well (like pimples or scarring) it does make for a nice, light base coverage, which can be touched up with concealer or foundation if you need a little extra coverage.

I found while using this it tended to look a little oily on the skin on it’s own. While it didn’t break me out, it wasn’t looking too hot for me. I tend to have oily skin, especially in the Summer time, so if you are the same, simply set with a powder. I used the Benefit Porefessional Agent Zero Shine, as it’s a super lightweight and translucent powder.

Have you tried this BB Cream? What were your thoughts?
