BB Creams have been big on the Beauty Scene for a while. The concept of BB cream is great since they are promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. Who wouldn’t want skin care and some coverage in one product. When they initially launched in India I tried out the BB creams from Keihl’s and Maybelline but was not impressed. Fast forward to now and I am happy to say L.A Girl is changing my perspective.

Product Claims: “HD PRO BB Cream is formulated without parabens and made fragrance-free to pamper sensitive skin and lavishly nourish skin with added Vitamin B3, C and E. The silky formula covers a wide range of skin tones with eight diverse shades. This is your all-in-one skin beautifier that primes, moisturizes and enhances skin tone.”
It is packaged in a no-nonsense transparent plastic tube. A glossy sticker, black in color with the product name printed on it is stuck around it and the slit in the plastic sticker shows the shade. One needs to be careful with the pressure they apply on the tube to dispense product, if too much comes out it cant be put back in!
The product has liquid consistency, its light but not very runny. It spreads wonderfully and gives a relatively high coverage almost like some foundations I have tried. Since its easy to spread you can use your fingers but a brush/sponge will give a smoother and even finish. I apply it with my Real Techniques Kabuki.
I like that this BB cream has no fragrance because strong scents tend to irritate my system. There are 8 shades to choose from, I got the Medium. The ‘burnt child’ in me thought like other brands they must say medium but it will turn out to be light; but I was happy to be proven wrong. It is true to its name and unfortunately its a little dark for me. Nevertheless I don’t have a problem with looking a little tan. It gives a satin finish. I like my face matte so I set it with my Studio Fix pressed powder. The product claims to be moisturizing but the finish is far better when you prep your skin with a moisturizer prior to application. It wears for a good 5-7 hours and does not crease when set with a powder.

Update – 10 April 2017
I recently repurchased this BB cream in the shade GBB 944 Neutral since Medium was slightly darker for me. It has the same quality and Neutral Shade matches me perfectly. ( I am a NC 40 in MAC Colour term)
