I am a massive fan of all things by Kiko so recently when I was shopping I decided to pick up one of their BB Creams because I didn’t have one and I was interested to see what their face products are like because I have mainly stuck to eye makeup products. (After finishing writing and reading this I have come back to apologise for for being such a Moaning Myrtle all throughout!)
When I was testing them in the store they all seemed to test out really dark which did worry me slightly but I decided to buy the lightest one anyhow. For me BB Creams should have a little bit of skincare with a little bit of makeup type formula but I’m actually slightly disappointed by this one. I don’t know whether it’s because I expect too much from Kiko or something but it really hasn’t been working for me.
The product is both light and thick at the same time which gives it good coverage; I need the smallest amount and it spreads over my face really nicely but it also dries it out a lot. I tend to use BB Creams more in the summer because I don’t want to be wearing thick, heavy foundations but after a while I can start to feel this sitting on my face and isn’t comfortable at all which is a shame because I normally love Kiko.
As it is slightly thicker than I would like, it can be a little bit difficult to work with. It has to be worked into my skin quite a lot before there is an even coverage but that might be perhaps because it’s a tad too dark for me I don’t know and once I get to that stage it only looks OK. I think one of the reasons I find it hard to work with is because it comes out white but the more you rub it in it gets darker! This isn’t just slightly darker; it really stands out on my skin!
Overall I this isn’t the product for me, I want something that is easy to work with and is more light-weight than this particular BB Cream. I love that it has SPF although as I am mainly wearing a product like this during the summer I do feel like I would like it to have a higher level SPF. This might be the perfect thing for someone with already perfect skin that doesn’t tend to dry out so I might be passing this on to one of my friends who will get better use out of it!
Have you tried any face products by Kiko?
