Pure Skin Anti-spot BB Cream

Friday, 18 March 2016

This tinted moisturiser from Essence is now known as the Pure Skin Anti-spot BB Cream.
By far the most affordable yet effective BB Cream on the market! I think it goes for about R59.
It contains an SPF 10 which is a bit of protection and better then nothing but I wouldn’t recommend being in the sun for extended time with just this as protection.

It is a BB cream so it isn’t full coverage but it is enough to even skin tone and cover lighter marks. I would use it under normal foundation during bad breakouts. I use the Essence Pure Skin Anti-Spot Cover Cream concealer on spots and darker marks underneath the BB cream for extra cover.
Active ingredients like SALICYLIC ACID & ZINC PCA help fight spots and speed up healing. I did notice that spots seem to heal and disappear faster when wearing this daily. Its hard to say whether it helped prevent them at all though.

CONS:
It is limited to one “universal” shade, natural beige which definitely isn’t for a lot of skin shades and certainly isn’t “universal”. I am just lucky that it happens to match my skin.

It states that it has a mattifying effect but I find it has a slight shine and cant wear it without applying powder on top.

P.S
Just a tip if you look for this (or any of the Pure Skin range) in a Clicks or Dischem store, you wont find it by the Essence makeup stand (which is of corse where I went straight to), its by the face creams and washes and specialised products (I wandered around more then one store not knowing this haha)
