Review: Dr Jart + BB Cream

I know I'm very late to the Dr Jart + party, but I've finally arrived, with a bottle of wine in hand, so I'm sure they'll forgive me. I've always wanted to try it, but something had always stopped me, then I 'popped' into Boots with my mom, and had about 5 mins to pick up my 'essestinals' and saw this was on offer, and picked it up without thinking twice; so to call this an impulse buy would be perfectly correct.

I decided to pick up the Water Infused one as it seems to be the one most oily skinned bloggers have gone for. I spent ages (precious Boots seconds) searching to see what colour this was as most BB creams come with a light/dark shade range, but couldn't find one so it appears it only comes in one shade, which scared me as I'm quite pale, or at least my neck is; but I still thought I'd give it a go.

Shade wise it matched my skin pretty much perfectly. It looked very orange toned on my hand, but that didn't transfer to my face. It hasn't got a full coverage, it didn't cover my breakout, but it definitely evened my skin tone, and reduced the redness of my stubborn spots that will not disappear (slightly off track.) However, it doesn't claim to do that. It is not a foundation, it is essentially a tinted moisturiser, and for a tinted moisturiser, it has done bloomin' well.

This is it with concealer and powder on top, and if I do say so myself, it looks pretty flawless.

This is it 8 hours later. The rest of my make-up has faded, and it doesn't look 'flawless' anymore, but what I love about this product is that it still gives me an even skin tone, and when I look in the mirror I'm super impressed, I love the way my skin still looks, it never does that with foundation.

For me, I see it like Orgins Vita-Zing, but better. It's great at covering redness, doesn't leaving me worrying I look like an oompa lumpa, and it's hydrating too. I also feel that it keeps my skin looking 'good' the whole time it is on.

Overall it gets a massive thumbs up from me.

Have you tried it?

  1. I had a few samples of this and really liked it, I don't think I can justify the price though as I only ever wear foundation/bb creams to parties x

  5. I was really impressed with this too. On me it looks a bit grey at first but adjusts to my tone quite well.

  6. This sounds really good, you can tell it really evens your skin tone out. Your skin does look so flawless in that photo!

  7. That's really impressive, it gives great coverage!
