Dr. Jart+ BB Cream: Radiance 

I am in the market for a new tinted moisturizer, BB cream, or CC cream. Each time I decide I have a favorite one, it gets discontinued. So, I’m searching again. Recently, I’ve been really drawn to the skincare benefits of Dr. Jart+ products. I had a sample of a tinted moisturizer I wanted to love but it was just a bit warm for my skin. So, recently, I picked up for Dr. Jart+ BB creams (in travel sizes) in order to test and see if one them becomes a holy grail product. First up: Dr. Jart+ BB Cream: Radiance

Yay for SPF 30!

 This product is sheer and smells nice. It was the perfect shade for my skin, but it didn’t provide as much coverage as I wanted, and it gave me a complexion that was, shall we say, overly-glowy.

So, should you buy it?

Pros: This product contains SPF 30, which is great! Remember, dear readers, SPF is a daily essential! It also matched my skin tone really well.

Cons: This had almost zero coverage. I expect a bit more color in a BB cream. Also, while it worked well for my skin, this product only comes in one shade (made for fair light skin tones), so this has a very limited range. Also, it is $42 for 1.5 oz which is really steep since it doesn’t magically transform skin. Finally, it made my skin glow a bit too much. I didn’t look oily, but I kind of looked like I’d applied a matte highlighter all over my face, which was weird.

Overall, I was underwhelmed by this product. If I do end up buying a a BB cream from the Dr. Jart+ brand, it definitely won’t be this one.
