As most of you may know, I am a huge BB cream fan. I dislike wearing foundation everyday for work, as my skin just dislikes it, I have tried many many BB creams to try and find the perfect one for my oily skin, I did find it in Estée Lauder's BB Creme but it costs a whopping £29.00 for 30ml, now the product is fantastic and worth every penny but I am on a budget at the moment so thought I would test out a high street alternative.
I have tried many different BB creams from MUA, Sleek, Rimmel to own brands including Osiris, but they all made my skin feel quite greasy so this time I opted for.....
Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream in shade 001 Light RRP £9.99.
"A lightweight, multi-benefit Beauty Balm that combines skincare, makeup, and sunscreen in one step.

I have used this product everyday for about a month now (apart from when I'm not at work and I use my foundation, I'm currently testing out another product from Revlon, Colourstay 24hr foundation, a full review of this will be up shortly), at first I liked this BB cream, the coverage of the BB cream is really good......
It gives you a nice semi matte medium coverage, no strong scent and applies quite nicely, and it does everything it claims to, however, after a few hours wear (2/3) I found my skin was becoming extremely oily and this was affecting the coverage and by the end of the day I looked like I wasn't wearing anything.
Before I use the product I give the tube a good shake but every time I squeezed some out, this happened.....
As you can see the product keeps separating even after a good shake, now this may be great for the drier of skins, giving a nice glow but for a self confessed 'oily skinned lady' this is no good at all.
I gave the product a fair trial but I'm really disappointed with it, no where on the packaging does it say for dry skin so you would presume its for all skin types.
Sorry Revlon this product gets a big thumbs down from me however I love using their foundation at the moment and I will write a post about my thoughts in this very soon.
Have you tried this product? What BB cream do you use if any?
