My First Time: NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm
BB Creams are lovely indeed. They are a combination of skincare and makeup in one single product. What more can a girl ask for? ? Today, I’m going to use my NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm Cream for the first time. So far, my favorite BB Creams are Skin 79 Super Beblesh Balm Triple Functions and Dr Jart+ Rejuvenating Silver Label BB Cream. Let’s see how this BB Cream holds up to my favorite BB Creams. Let’s test out NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm! ?
Here’s NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm (Natural)!

Unboxing NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm:
I’m going to unbox the NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm. The box design matches the BB Cream tube. They both have that white and peachy color. This BB Cream isn’t sealed. When I removed the cap, the cream began to ooze out. Watch out for that.
Swatch of NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm:
Here’s a swatch of the NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm. The shade, Natural, blends into my complexion quite well.
NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm is creamy and soft to touch. It glides on the skin effortlessly. It blends into the skin very well. It made my skin feel moisturized and silky smooth. Looking at the ingredients, it contains silicones, which does a great job at smoothing out the skin. It does make the skin look slightly brighter. Nothing great to call home about. This BB Cream has a faint, light fragrance to it. The fragrance fades away within a few minutes of application. As for the color, the shade isn’t too light or too dark for my complexion. I like it. It looks very, very natural on my skin. For people with a tanner, deeper complexion, obviously this wouldn’t work. One of the downsides to BB Creams, they only come in a few shades, and they are usually for light to medium skin tones.
Is NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm a BB Cream? In my opinion, NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm is called a BB Cream, but it is not a BB Cream. It’s a tinted moisturizer and a primer with very little coverage. I would advise using it under your foundation instead. I wouldn’t use it alone and by itself. That would be pretty pointless due to the very low coverage it offers. It doesn’t conceal dark under eye circles either. I can clearly see my dark under eye circles with it on. You’ll need a concealer for that. As for break-outs, I haven’t used it long enough to say if it clogs pores or not. We will have to see with continued use. Lastly, it doesn’t contain SPF for sun protection. What a bummer. My favorite BB Creams provide a SPF of 50+ PA+++ (Skin 79) and SPF of 35 PA++ (Dr Jart+). Sun protection is very important to maintaining a youthful and wrinkle-free complexion. NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm loses points for that.
So, that’s my first impression of NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm. Stay tuned for my full review once I become more acquainted with it! Have you used NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm? Did it work for you? Share your thoughts!
