I probably didn’t need another base product but Diorskin Nude BB Cream really stood out for me, having sampled it some time ago. Lucky for me this review comes to you guilt free as I was fortunate to receive a tube as a birthday gift from my sister. Having worn the Diorskin Nude BB cream every day since receiving it, I can honestly say that I absolutely love it… it’s quite literally heaven in a tube.
I’m not sure where this product stands in terms of its BB Cream credentials, but wow, this really is an amazing all-in-one solution for everyday makeup. On application, my skin instantly appears more refined and my complexion smooth and more even. It brightens my face and lasts virtually all day (I usually get by without touching up). Best of all, the ‘sheer coverage’ (although I would say it’s actually more medium) feels moisturising and hydrating.
The texture is smooth and creamy and it glides on seamlessly – I just love that I don’t look like I’m wearing a heavy/caked on foundation base. It’s also one of the few bases I own that seems to handle hot/humid conditions really well. It’s currently winter in my neck of the woods although its quite warm by winter standards, so I can see this BB cream being a great foundation that will adapt and transition through the seasons quite seamlessly.
In terms of packaging Dior has hit the nail on the head. Each swanky tube contains 30ml and comes with a pump dispenser (which I love). I have the shade 002 which is the perfect colour match for me (I’m an NW20-25). The size is compact and the product is lightweight making it great for travel and throwing in your makeup bag. I generally apply the BB cream with my fingers as I find it gives a nice natural finish. I like to pair my Dior Nude BB Cream with my Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder. They’re literally a match made in heaven.
