I love Physician’s Formula foundation products and I’ve been using them for a few years now.
However, I never took this argan oil BB cream seriously: I thought it would make my face oily and shiny. I have normal skin, so why would I need this?
But then it happened : I saw this BB cream with a 30% discount and decided to give it a try during the cold season (there is a lesser chance to spend a day with a shining nose then).
That’s what I received:
The design is somewhat oriental
Even inside you can find beautiful patterns.
It’s hard to take a photo of it as it shimmers.
There was a seal on the tube
Weight: 35 ml.
Shelf-life: 12 months after opening
Price: about $10
I didn’t bother to read the directions before using it. When I tried to squeeze the first drop out, the tube spat some argan oil onto my mirror.
That’s how life punishes those who don’t read directions of use.
The BB cream must be shaken before use!
The color isn’t light or even medium:
I had three other foundations of the brand and they all were much lighter than this one. This BB Cream would be great for tanned or swarthy skin only.
The product is not too thick and nice to use. I apply it with my fingers (some people say it’s the only option with mature skin).
I like that it’s easy to achieve a thin lightweight coverage that won’t look cakey. It doesn’t crease or settle in my wrinkles.
It evens my skin tone out, but as you can see, it doesn’t completely cover my pigment spots.
The smell of argan oil and strong and lasts for a long time - they were generous with fragrance. Luckily, I like such an oriental perfume, but not everybody would like it as well, so keep it in mind.
The BB Cream sits nicely throughout the day, it doesn’t come off or fall into pores. I haven’t noticed face shine, but a face powder is required anyway. Surprisingly, this BB Cream leaves no oily traces on my phone’s display.
I’m really happy I saw this discounted because I would have never bought an argan oil cream otherwise. It proved itself as a nice foundation for mature skin.
I can recommend it for girls with tanned or swarthy skin. Don’t forget its strong scent too.
I give it 5 stars.
