I have already reviewed the Illuminating BB Brush cream by Dr. Jart. I had really liked that one and with this Premium Beauty Balm, I had pretty high hopes as well. Read on for more details on Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm with SPF 45.

My Experience with Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45:
Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm comes housed in a beautiful gold black tube which has a twist-up cap. The tube is squeezable. The name of the brand and product are printed on the front and the rest of the details are printed at the back.
If you like medium coverage BB creams or tinted moisturizers, then this is a product you should consider. Premium BB by Dr. Jart offers two shades – by dr jart offers two shades (Light to Medium and Medium to Deep). I picked up “Light to Medium” which looks slightly darker on my skin tone. I am quite disappointed with their shade, but keeping that aside, the formula of this cream is very nice.
Unlike the brush BB cream, this tube has a nozzle, which I personally prefer since there is no chance of wasting the product. The consistency of this BB cream is slightly thicker than brush BB cream and it really feels like a lightweight foundation on the face and it provides better coverage than the BB Brush Cream.
The best way to apply this BB cream is by using it with a Beauty Blender. It offers a very natural finish on the skin with slight dewiness which makes my dull and dry skin look radiant and healthy. This cream sits very nicely on the skin and offers a sun protection of SPF 45.
Since this BB cream provides medium coverage, if I apply a heavy foundation on top, it will look heavy. On my B20 Chanel and MAC NC20 skin tone, it looks darker. This BB cream has no brightening properties, but it does even out skin tone. It covers up acne scars to some extent, but not completely, up to what a medium coverage foundation would work, but the good thing is that my skin did not tan when I had this cream on.
It is highly blendable and is buildable up to medium coverage. It doesn’t look cakey and looks perfect throughout the day. It lasted 7 hours on me, but I saw a bit of fading away on my chin area, but it’s quite normal on my skin. This has no noticeable fragrance in it and it also is fit for sensitive skin.
Pros of Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45:
- Protection factor of SPF 45.
- Imparts a natural, dewy finish.
- Medium coverage.
- No fragrance.
Cons of Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45:
- Only two shades to choose from.
