|Maybelline Dream Pure 8-in-1 BB cream|
Remember how I said that I hate BB creams? Well this is the exception... I was honestly so shocked when I used this that I even contemplated buying a backup. This BB cream contains 2% Salicylic Acid which is why it's aimed at people with oily skin. I have combination skin and I normally need to blot or powder during the day as my forehead can get quite oily. When I wear this BB cream, I've noticed that my forehead isn't quite as oily but my skin just looks dewy (as I don't set it with powder).
One thing you do have to keep an eye out for with this BB cream is that it's quite light in colour. Medium matches me absolutely spot on whilst Medium is every other BB cream I've tried has always been too dark. For reference, I'm currently a NC25 and I wear Laura Mercier's Silk Crème foundation in Bamboo Beige and Dior Diorskin Nude foundation in Beige 30.

Whilst I wear a full face of makeup for uni and for work, I'm quite reluctant to do my makeup to go down to the shops on my days off. But like anyone else, I still want to look slightly presentable so this is my go to product to cover up the redness in my face. It's an absolute dream to apply and blends really well. It's such a light product that it really does look super natural.
I seriously STILL can't believe that I like this... I'm sorry that I ever doubted it! I could've missed a gem if it wasn't for Ingrid's generosity! The biggest reason as to why I like this BB cream is the feel of it on my skin. It doesn't actually feel like I'm wearing anything and if I touch my face, it's smooth, not tacky like other BB creams.
