I’ve tried a few BB creams and CC creams and most don’t seem to either make my skin glow, or give much coverage, so I have ultimately been unimpressed by the concept. It’s nice to find a product that does what it says. And Thalgo Perfect Glow BB Cream just does that.
This is not one for those that desire a great deal of coverage, but the result is a luminous tint that uses skin-reflecting particles to boost radiance, without a shiny finish. Imperfections seem to blur and skin is left soft, moisturised and velvet in texture. Unfortunately, I use a higher SPF product underneath mine, so I don’t get to appreciate the texture and still look a little ‘greaseball’, but a touch of sheer powder deals to excess shine easily.
What’s more, the formula is true to Thalgo’s serious approach to skin care. The heart of the formula contains the very best from the marine, plant and mineral worlds:
• Vitapulp – an unprecedented active ingredient designed to perfect and even out the skin’s texture, leaving it smooth, polished and luminous.
• Séve Marine – an element rich in vital sugars essential for the skin’s health and also traps water to provide day-long hydration.
• SUN’YTOL FUTURE filter – a borad-spectrum SPF15 additive.
The product is not only cosmetic, but is an effective skin care cream and offers to deliver a more even complexion, refined skin texture, reduced redness, smoother skin and reduced irregularities.
Ultimately, I think this product would suit all ages – lovely on younger girls who don’t need a lot of coverage and delivering a soft, dewy finish which is flattering on mature skin types as well. Available in three shades (Ivory, Natural and Golden), Thalgo’s ‘Perfect Glow’ BB Cream, $74 delivers a natural, healthy glow, keeps the skin hydrated and offers UV protection – perfect for a lighter, tinted face cream this summer.
