Dr. Jart+ Waterfuse Beauty Balm

I know I'm a bit late to the Dr. Jart+ BB cream craze, but I still wanted to add my 2 cents to the table. I'm sure you all are familiar with the term BB cream. For those that aren't, the double B stands for 'Blemish Balm'. It's originated from Germany, but it was picked up by South-Korea, which created the buzz for the past 5 years. BB creams were were originally developed as a perfect post-procedure cream used to treat, hydrate, prime, protect, and camouflage the skin.

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm is sold as a one-step skin perfecting balm that minimizes the need for foundation or concealer, and I personally couldn't describe it better than that. It's a very easy to work-in texture, between a cream and gel, and blends in with the skin flawlessly. It has a natural dewy finish, not too shiny or glowy - that being said from a combination/oily skin kinda gal. For me it's the perfect spring-summer product as it's the perfect shade match, oil-free, includes SPF25 that protect the skin from a broad range of UVA and UVB radiation, and leaves the skin looking smooth and natural. Also, with this on I usually don't use as much concealer as it covers quite a lot of redness, I just add a bit on my blemishes if they still show up.

Pitfall? The shade range. It's a one color fits all, which obviously does not work for all. Though it is very easy to blend in, it will fit quite a few skin tones on the lighter end of the spectrum, but the very pale girls or the very dark skinned girls won't be able to work this. Besides this, I don't have any thing bad to say. The packaging is clean, hygienic and travel-friendly. It has a lovely scent, it's affordable and above all - it's widely distributed all over the UK and Ireland. You'll find Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm in Boots for £18.

    1. It's amazing, I can only say good things about it. What held you back? If it's the color, my very pale friend swears by this too - it's so blendable. Might be worth to ask a SA if you could put a bit in a sample jar to try at home? x

  2. Great post hun! I've wanted to try this for such a long time and I should probably get it already haha! I hope that I'll manage to find the perfect shade for me though! (:
