Aloe BB Creams & Concealers from Sonya
Hello my Dears!
Today I want to introduce to you aloe based BB creams and concealers that I use myself, from Forever‘s Sonya collection. I have been using these products already for a while and I really like them. I like to have natural look when I do my makeup and both, BB creams and concealer give me enough coverage but also look natural at the same time. Of course, what else makes me like them, is the fact that thy are natural aloe based products and don’t cause my skin to break out. There is one little complain I have, but I talk about it further in the text. So then, let me show you the products and the effect they bring!
These BB creams are enriched with aloe and hydrate, conceal, perfect and provide sun protection for shades Nude & Sandy with 20 SPF and for the shade Cocoa with 10 SPF. It is great to have sun protection in your makeup, you can apply this BB cream 15 minutes before sun exposure and you are good to go. Reapply if needed. All this sounds nice but ladies remember, high amount of SPF (Nude & Sandy) in your foundation will cause flashback, meaning, your face will look white if someone takes a photo of you with a flash. You can minimize it a little with setting the cream with a good powder, but it will not fully remove it. I still love how it looks on my skin and can imagine wearing it myself during a nice sunny day out, and keep in mind not to take photos with flash!
Here is a quick swatch of both shades, Nude and Sandy. I use mostly the shade Nude and mix it a little bit with the shade Sandy. I feel like Nude is a little too light for me, and I’m sure I will need to mix more Sandy shade during summer months.
The concealer duet I use is Medium shade. Aloe based concealer pencils are easy to use and one of the shades has slight red/orange undertone, perfect for concealing dark under eye circles. The other more yellow tone is suitable for covering red spots. The creamy texture is easy to apply and blend, and it gives pretty good coverage.
Here is the comparison, my before and after photos! As you can see, it is not giving full coverage, but that’s why it is BB cream, and not a foundation. I like more natural look and only want to hide my discoloration and redness. The part I like the most, is how my dark under eye circles disappeared! The part I hate the most about my face! Nothing I can do about it, but luckily concealers can hide them for me sometimes 🙂 Please note, that this photo is taken without a flash, so it looks natural and not white in natural light.
