The Ultimate BB Cream for Pale Skin.

After running out of foundation on my way to Barcelona (only I could do this) I was forced to embrace my sunkissed bare face whilst in Spain. I've really taken to wearing light coverage foundations and always liked the idea of BB creams, but I've always found them to be way too dark for my super pale skin

When I was shopping in Boots last week, instead of picking up my fave foundation I browsed a little and came across the Boots Botanic range, which happened to be on offer. I swatched the 'light' shade and decided it didn't look too dark and I would give it a go. I've been wearing this BB cream everyday since picking it up and I'm pleased to say it's become a firm favourite. 

The BB cream is slightly more watery than others I've used in the passed. It's much less orangey too, which is ideal for my skin tone. I've been blending this out with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, which just gives a gorgeous flawless finish and creates a no-make look to my skin. I've really been enjoying the finish this gives me too, I've been avoiding using my loose powder and allowing the dewy-ness to come through. This really gives a natural finish an feels so, so light on the skin despite having an SPF 30 included.

If you've been hunting for a light shade of BB cream, I suggest you give this one a whirl. Fab coverage and fab finish, an all round winner.
