Seventeen Blemish Balm BB Cream

Never in a million years did I think I would ever find myself falling in love with a product from this brand.  I dont consider myself to be a brand snob but I just put this brand into the 'teenager' category so when I found myself picking up a bottle of the Seventeen Blemish Balm BB Cream in 'light' I did question myself. 


To cut a long story short I bought it last August (I found the receipt the other day!) but it was only when I organised my collection I decided to stray from my usual Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser for a day and try it out.  Comparing to my beloved tinted moisturiser the first thing I noticed is that the consistency of the BB cream is definitely thicker and therefore more coverage.  Don't get me wrong its not as full coverage as a foundation but its definitely more than the average tinted moisturiser. The finish leaves a slight dewy appearance but the best part is throughout the day its got a pretty good lasting power and your skin feels moisturised and soft, although I have oily / combination skin I really enjoy this aspect of it.


The bottom line is... I would repurchase it. Its a good price, it works well for someone who likes a little coverage but fairly light on the skin and maybe just use with a little concealer if required.

The packaging has since changed - click here to see the updated version.
