Hi, I am just new to IMBB and would this is my first review, hope you like it.
After Rati Di’s review on Clarins White plus Serum + Cleanser Review, I thought of writing a review on Clarins newly launched first-ever BB cream in SPF 40 to meet the unique needs of Asian women. Since all of us know how BB creams are capturing market nowadays, maximum cosmetic companies are coming up with the BB creams. I have tried Maybelline’s BB Cream but was not so exciting but the Clarins BB Cream is just so awesome, read on to find out how.

How to Use: After moisturizing, take a small amount of BB cream between your palms. Gently press onto forehead, cheeks, sides of nose and chin to revitalize, even and protect—with a “no make-up” effect. Follow with makeup, if desired or only a compact will do wonders. I usually use compact and mascara and a little lip gloss and all set for the day.

My experience with Clarins BB Cream:
After the first application it felt thick, as you can see in the images below. But when you start to blend it, blends beautifully.

My skin tone looks even and healthy. The cream is pretty thick but once it is absorbed by the skin, it gives a natural matte finish and actually felt and looked like I wasn’t wearing makeup. I finished my look with some concealer and mascara and was set for the day!
