Ponds Luminous Finish BB+ Cream Review

   Influenster sent me their Mama Vox Box to try out and inside was some Ponds Luminous Finish BB+ Cream. Besides being a BB cream, it's also supposed to tone your skin! Yay!
   This is the second BB cream I've used and reviewed (check here for the 1st one!). In comparison, this cream is less messy (the tube has a more controlled spout) and is smelly(?) (it has some...odor to it...I think they meant well, but I don't like it).
    I received two different shades (light & medium) in my Influenster Mama Vox Box, which I thought was great because they let me choose my shade. BB creams seem to only have light, medium and dark shades. Though these creams can replace liquid foundations (I don't use liquid foundation or powder anymore-all I do is slap some BB cream on!) they only come in the broader ranges, unlike more specific foundation shades. Another reason I appreciate receiving two different shades is because my skin tone changes from light to medium in the summer time, but when the sun disappears, so does my tan, which used to mean that I would use two or three different foundations (sometimes blending colors, depending on the time of year) but now I only have two BB creams to choose from! Light or medium!

      I don't really know the science behind BB creams, but it seems like magic to me! I just slap some on, and after a few minutes (foundation takes a few minutes too to set) my skin looks flawless! I honestly thought that the light Ponds BB cream would be too "light" (you know: like a pasty-white) but it blended so well with my skin tone!
     The texture of the Ponds BB cream is rich and thick, but still spreadable. When I use liquid foundation, I always use a damp sponge to apply it to my face, and I do it really really quick so that it doesn't dry in weird different-colored patches all over my face. With BB cream, I just squeeze some onto my fingers and smear all over my face & I'm good to go!

            So if you're looking for a fantastic BB cream to try, check out Pond's Luminous Finish BB+ Cream! Check them out on Facebook now to get a coupon!
