Hi to all beauties of IMBB,
Today, I am reviewing a product which I bought recently from Superdrug, its my first BB cream. Its from Superdrug itself and they claim this to be perfect for this summer. There were two shades available, I picked up the medium one, which is a bit darker for me, but I like that tan kind of finish which it gives to my skin.
- Conceals imperfections and enhances skin tone.
- 24-hour hydration.
- Antioxidant protection.

My Opinion on Superdrug BB Cream 5-in-1 Skin Perfecting Day Cream:
This is my first BB cream and I must say I am totally loving it. Although, its a darker shade, I like the tan finish it gives to my face. It imparts a dewy finish and it makes the skin very soft and velvety smooth. I had a few acne marks on my skin and those were well covered by this product. It doesn’t clog pores or make my skin dry. It does what it promises and I am really satisfied with this. I wish to try the other shade which is a lighter one to see if that exactly matches my skin tone.
I used this BB cream without even applying a moisturiser and my face was fresh and glowy all long day. I really recommend this product to all.
I don’t know whether this is available at all the places, but if you can get this, that would be nice. I recommend this to all dry skin beauties as well as combination skinned beauties. I have not tried other BB creams, so I can’t compare this with others.
I have heard mixed reviews about this from several British bloggers, but most of the negative comments were on the shade selection part, not the product quality or the job it does. This product was not suiting most of the pale toned ladies out here, but I think it matches most of the olive skin toned beauties.
The lighter shade for this product is not much of an ivory shade, its again another variant of yellow (which I think would match with olive skin tones). I will surely repurchase this.
I did try this as a primer, but I didn’t like it that way.
Pros of Superdrug BB Cream 5-in-1 Skin Perfecting Day Cream:
- Easy to blend and apply.
- Gives a nice glow to the skin.
- Long-lasting moisturization.
- Doesn’t clog pores.
- No parabens.
- Evens out the skin tone.
Cons of Superdrug BB Cream 5-in-1 Skin Perfecting Day Cream:
- Availability in India is an issue.
- I didn’t like it as a primer.
- Shade selection is limited. For people who are very fair, no shade is available, it will be way too orangey for pale skin tones.
Hope you liked my review. Comments are most welcome.
