The Makeup: Dr Jart+ Water Fuse BB Cream | Review

Even though BB Creams have been out a good while now, I'm really late jumping on the bandwagon with this baby, but as I was browsing through Boots the other day, I simply could not resist having a sneaky look at the skincare. I noticed this was actually on offer for a bargain-licious £11.99. My eyes opened wider than wide and I quickly shoved this in my (already full) basket. Yes, you could say I was excited.

I'm more of a foundation gal, but I wanted to give it a go, and core-blimey I'm glad I did.
With its light coverage this is perfect for Spring/Summer, as there's nothing I hate more than wearing a really heavy, mask-like, foundation in the (hopefully) warmer months. I apply this like I would any base, by applying a small amount to my face and blending it out using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. The thing I love about this is that it's oil-free, which is great news for me as I suffer from oily skin and I sometimes feel like foundation is gradually slipping off my face (yay). However when I use this my skin doesn't feel like an oil-slick at all and it stays put even without the use of a primer.

It's not to thick but not watery either and leaves my skin looking glowy, healthy and natural. There are other BB Creams from Dr Jart+ but this one particularly caught my eye, oil-free with SPF, Aloe leaf juice to prevent moisture loss and anti-redness ingredients, what more could you want eh?
The fact this only comes in one shade, I'll admit did kinda scare me at first, what with my pale skin but I was pleasantly surprised and I didn't leave the house looking like I'd had a fake tan disaster after all. This with a bit of bronzer, blusher, mascara and a neutral lip is purrfect.

The coverage as I mentioned before is light, so I did still have to use a little bit of concealer under my eyes but you can definitely go without a powder with this BB Cream. As far a moisture goes, I still prefer to use a tiny blob of my usual moisturiser beforehand but you probably would be able to get away without using any.
I do love to use this on its own but it's great to use under any foundation, as it helps stop oily skin, so you could just use it like a moisturiser and then go ahead and do your thing on top of it.
This would usually be a rather pricey £18 from boots but I wouldn't hesitate buying another one, as I think this is going to be my Spring/Summer staple. But as it's on offer, get yourself down to boots and pick one up, you won't regret it.


  1. I've wanted this for AGES! I am also more of a foundation girl but every review I read say it's amazing. When did you get it on offer? I hope I can get it for the cheaper price too?!

    1. If you click on the link for Boots, it takes you straight to the Boot's website and it's still on offer! :)

  2. I have seen so many good reviews about this BB Cream but the price tag has put me off slightly... however I think I need to give it a go xx

  3. I'm more of a foundation girl as well and so far all the bb creams I've found I've hated, but everyone seems to rave about this one! I'm tempted to try it but cause of the price tag I'm worried I won't like it!
