New Find at the Drugstore : e.l.f. BB Cream

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

Long time no see! There has been a lot going on recently and I finally found some time to sit down and write, and none too soon. I’m surprised at how much I do miss blogging after going without it for a couple weeks!

I wanted to take today to talk about a new product I found recently. It’s definitely not new to the drugstore but it is new to me! Recently I went on a vacation and was in need of a little lighter of a foundation for the hiking, zip lining, and all around active days that were soon approaching. Normally, I use the Too Faced Born This Way foundation and it’s great! Not too heavy but definitely more high coverage than I was aiming for on vacation. So, I opted for trying out a BB cream. After some searching, I decided to try out the e.l.f. BB cream (in the shade nude). What intrigued me about this product is the easy squeeze tube and the SPF 20 was definitely an added bonus. It did a great job for its intended use! It lasted through sweat and rain and didn’t end up looking patchy by the end of it all. It’s definitely a lower coverage than I’m used to but I kind of liked the “effortless” look it gave my skin. It can be built up to a bit higher coverage to cover some problem areas, but I wasn’t really concerned with that being out in the wilderness. All around, I think this is a great product and I’m not sure why I waited so long to try a BB cream! I’ll definitely keep it handy for days where I’m just not feeling a full faced look.
