Today is just a quick look at the Coffret D'or BB Cream. It has such a long name! Sorry no pictures of the product on my face, I'm just fitting in this post in between studying =D
I ordered this from AdamBeauty, about $34CAD (after shipping) for 30g. I was very hesitant on ordering this because I couldn't decide on the shade to purchase and whether it would clog my pores like Skinfood and Hanskin did.
I ended up getting the darkest shade, 03 Healthy Tone. At first I was worried it would be a bit too dark, but I compared the online swatches of the P&J foundations and Lunasol (that I've used before) and concluded on shade 03 because those foundations were all a touch too light for me in the summer time. Plus, my Kiehl's Tinted Moisturizer was in Medium and it's quite dark too, so the 03 shade should suit me.
I'm not going to explain what BB creams are since there are a bajillion bloggers that did. This particular one comes with SPF 33PA++ and is unscented (yay!). I don't think there's a specific target for this BB Cream (like anti wrinkle or whitening).
When I first applied it to my skin, I was surprised at how yellow toned it was! But after a few minutes, it blends into my skin nicely without any sallowness.
For comparison, I used the Maybelline foundation. Although I mentioned that it appeared very yellow, it somehow changed to my skintone, I can't explain it.
I think it's worth a try if you like foundations that are lightweight and convenient because it has the SPF in it. Also, you don't need to use a base prior to applying this, so even more convenient!
