Well, today is the day I’m baring it all in the name of a beauty review.
You have Jane Iredale’s Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream to thank for this little bit of skin nudity.
Because I wanted to show the true difference Jane Iredale’s Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream makes in my spotty, uneven skin, I knew a before and after photo would be necessary.
I am thankful that during this particular week, my skin wasn’t absolutely broken out and annoying, but nonetheless, it’s not perfect.
And that’s why we have makeup…full-coverage makeup, thank you very much!
I was slow to hop onto the BB cream bus, mostly because I’m a skeptic by nature and wanted to understand how a miraculous BB cream was any better than a great tinted moisturizer.
The difference, to me, is in the coverage. A fabulous BB cream, like Jane Iredale’s, offers full coverage without feeling thick or goopy, and has added bonuses such as SPF 25 and beneficial antioxidants to help treat and heal the skin.
While Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream’s ingredients aren’t perfect (it contains the dreaded dimethicone, a silicone that gives makeup that nice slip for even application, but is known to cause allergic reactions and dryness in some people), they’re way cleaner than most mainstream brands while offering a superior level of coverage.
Titanium Dioxide, Water/Eau, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Stearoxymethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer, Maltodextrin, White Tea Leaf Extract, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Grapefruit Fruit Extract, Bitter Orange Fruit Extract, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Glycerin, Apple Fruit Extract, Pectin, Chlorella Vulgaris/Lupinus Albus Protein Ferment, Sodium Ascorbate, Tocopherol, Sunflower Seed Oil, Radish Root Extract, Lecithin, Honeysuckle Flower Extract, Honeysuckle Flower Extract, Aluminum Hydroxide, Xanthan Gum, May Contain: Iron Oxides (CI 77489, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288)
As you can see in the “after” photo above, Jane Iredale’s Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream did a great job of evening out my skin tone and creating the perfect canvas for further makeup application.
I did, however, go back and add a little more coverage to the outstanding blemishes that I felt could use additional concealing — but that’s most likely because we’re all a little critical of ourselves as we are making up our faces.
Do you have a particular foundation or other makeup product that you rely on to get you through these self-critical times? What BB creams do you use and love? Ever tried anything from Jane Iredale? Tell me in the comments section!
