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!

I thought I would take a break talking about makeup. Currently, I have two masks. This one (shown in photo) and Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask Charcoal & Marine Algae. I wanted to introduce this new mask first before I review the other one. 😊

This facial mask caught my eye. I mean, marshmallow sounds fluffy and heavenly. This skin care product is vegan and cruelty-free. 🐄 I had to try it out!
