I got the chance to try Hydroxatone Anti Aging BB Cream. I have heard of the brand Hydroxatone before but have never actually tried anything from the brand. From what I have read, they have a really good skincare line so I assumed a BB cream from them would be good. I was right! Yes! I love when that happens (when I’m right that is!).
With my oily skin, BB creams are always iffy for me. I can never wear them alone. I always need a primer and a finishing powder. I got the shade in Medium. Medium is usually my shade I always get and it is usually a match. I’ve been in NY for the cold weather so I am a lighter than usual but this shade was perfect on me.
One thing I noticed about this product was the way it smelled. It smells so good! I was surprised by that, it reminded me a cookie. The consistency isn’t too thick or thin. I used two layers because I wanted more coverage. Even with two layers, this is not considered to be full coverage. BB creams usually make me oily. This one did not keep me super matte BUT it did not make me oily like usual. I had to use blotting powder throughout the day to keep a matte face but it wasn’t too bad at all. I can’t say anything about the anti aging part but I know I will use this on days were I’m doing quick errands. Its not something I would wear to work or to meet friends just because I like a full coverage foundation since I have really bad skin but it will do for boring days. Its quick and makes my skin tone more even which is all you need sometimes.
Pictured below is a rare picture, me with minimal makeup. This was taken right after applying Hydroxatone BB Cream in Medium. As you can see it is not full coverage, so a concealer would be needed for full coverage. Since I was not doing much today, I swept some finishing powder on and called it a day.
Have you tried this before? Will you be trying this?
