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’m verging on 2 months of using jojoba oil as a facial moisturizer. I only use jojoba oil as a facial moisturizer. I don’t use it as a leave-in hair treatment or body oil. From my own experience, for me, it works best as facial moisturizer. I use it in the morning and at night after I cleanse my skin. I dispense a few drops of oil into the palm of my hand and gently apply it to my facial skin. I pat it in and let it soak into my skin. Since I’ve been doing this every day and night, my skin hasn’t been dry at all. I haven’t had to deal with cracked and shedding skin, lol. I haven’t had any break-outs from it either. No acne. No skin irritations. No redness. Nothing. It’s been working fabulously! Jojoba oil isn’t just good for the facial skin. I’ve too noticed that my eye area has been extremely moisturized. It makes a natural and lovely eye cream. It doesn’t get rid of dark under eye circles, but it makes a good moisturizer for the skin around the eyes. Along with that, my eyelashes appear healthier and longer. I’m not even kidding. My eyelashes appear fuller and thicker. 😍 Overall, my skin has been looking soooo good and pretty that I’ve cut down on makeup products. Who needs makeup when your skin naturally glows? Amazing! I love, love, love the results! I couldn’t be any happier! But, that’s my experience with my previous jojoba oil. Now, let’s see if Now Solutions Organic Jojoba Oil works just the same!

Have you used Now Solutions Organic Jojoba Oil or Trader Joe’s SPA 100% Pure Jojoba Oil? Any other brands of jojoba oil? Share your thoughts!
