Payot Hydrating Antioxidant BB Cream
Availability: Selected Milady's, Dis-Chem stores and independent pharmacies nationwide
The perfect blend of a high-performance moisturiser with mineral pigments which melt into the skin in one simple action. An innovative, 5-in-1 solution for a “peaches and cream” complexion.
What we say:
With so many BB creams available these days, it’s almost impossible to know which one will suit you best. I have very fair skin, which rules out almost every BB cream on the market as most of them are too “orange” or “tan” for my alabaster complexion. I was hoping that this latest BB cream from Payot would be one of the few that work with my pale skin tone.
Although it is also slightly dark for my skin, I find that I am able to blend it easily and somehow it seems to go on lighter than you’d expect, and adapts to my skin nicely. It offers slightly more coverage than some of the other BB creams I’ve used which is wonderful as I can skip my foundation all together and just dab on some translucent powder instead.
It lasts all day long (until I remove it, in fact) and contains an SPF 15 which is a bonus! Be careful to apply a very thin layer and blend, blend, blend – I tend to apply a little bit too much and then struggle to get rid of the streaks on my cheeks.
All-in-all I am very happy with the results and will definitely turn to this product in the future. It covers beautifully, smells delicious and is long-lasting. Great value for money!
