NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm??

NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm

I purchased NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm about 1 year ago. It looks like the BB Cream is still good for use. It doesn’t have a smell or feel tacky. I decided to give it a go again. Why?? As I was using my elf Flawless Finish Foundation without a primer, the foundation looked dry and accentuated fine lines and wrinkles on my skin. I could see patches of my skin care products (that I applied to my skin, that I let soak in) balling up. That simply means the skin care + foundation was rolling off of my face! Devastating! :'(

What NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm looks like

I realized I still have a BB Cream sitting around untouched. Lo and behold, NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm to the rescue! For some odd reason, it worked this time. I didn’t use it as a BB Cream. I used it as a makeup primer only. The tint to this BB Cream was completely useless. It doesn’t cover anything on the skin, but I didn’t care. I wanted to see if it worked as a primer or not with my new foundation — elf Flawless Finish Foundation.

What I did was follow my morning regimen, let my skin care products soak into my skin, apply NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm, then apply my elf Flawless Finish Foundation. IT WORKED. The foundation looked smooth, natural, and matte. I’ve been doing this for three days straight to see if my skin will react negatively or not. So far, no breakouts and no signs of irritation. My skin looks good. My makeup looks flawless! I love how my makeup looks sooo natural. With the elf Flawless Finish Foundation, the NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm worked.

I’m glad I gave NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm a second chance. I will continue to use it as my primer if it doesn’t break me out. Have you used NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm before? Did it work for you? Share your thoughts!

Well, it’s not so new to me anymore. 😉 I’ve been using it for 1 month already! Here’s a brief introduction on this eye cream in this post. My last eye cream was Roc Retinol Correxion Eye Cream. I’ve used it for many, many years. I intended to keep using it if I couldn’t find something else to replace it. Check out my skin care routine to learn more about it! So, I did mention several times that I’m trying my best to move towards natural and vegan skin care products. Lucky me, I found something along those lines. It’s called LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer. It is 77% Organic (better than being zero) and vegan. It’s free of a bunch of nasty ingredients. The first few ingredients on the list are Organic Aloe Leaf Juice, Organic Coconut Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Vitamin E, and Sunflower Seed Oil. It has tons of good reviews. I thought, hey, let’s give it a try instead of returning to my old eye cream. Since it’s been a month of using LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer, did it work? A review coming up soon! Stick around!
