I’m a big fan of NSpa skin care, so when I saw that they had a BB cream within their range I decided to give it a whirl. My skin is suffering from dryness at the moment, so I’m investigating anything light and moisturising.
The NSpa BB cream claims to minimises the appearance of fine lines and blemishes with a light, natural colour for beautiful dewy skin. It has a good 12h hydration promise, with the added benefit of Vitamin C and an SPF 15 UV protection.
The first thing I noticed, when picking up in my local Asda, was that it came with no indication to what shade it was. I’ve never seen this with a BB cream before, they usually come with at least and light and medium option, but alas I could not find anything, so I just took the chance and purchased it anyway.
When I opened it up and first swatched it I thought I’d made a big mistake, it looked very dark, and worryingly orange tinged, however once blended in it adapted and surprisingly looked pretty well matched. I do think though, if you’re very pale skinned then this one is not going to be for you, unfortunate,
The finish is lovely; really natural, light with a very moisturising texture. I’ve tried a few BB creams that cam sometimes leave a slight oily residue on the skin, but this one sinks in really well. The coverage isn’t too high, but that’s to be expected with a BB cream that offers a more natural look, if anything I would really say this leans towards more of a tinted moisturiser, with added benefits.
Overall I like this for a day time product, and have found it easy to just apply in the morning for work. I think you could also use this as a base for foundation, if you needed a better coverage. You can find the NSpa range, usually on offer exclusively in Asda, online or in your local store. The BB cream retails for £6.00.
