A couple of months ago my acne was quite severe and irritated. My facialist advised me to switch to a BB cream and she suggested Jane Iredale’s Glow Time BB Cream. At first, I was apprehensive because my acne made me a bit insecure and most BB creams don’t offer much coverage. However, this was the worst my acne had been in a long time, so I took her advice. I ordered two samples to test which shade would suit my skintone the best and ended up finding my holy grail product!
Jane Iredale BB Cream Coverage: The product is as full coverage as a BB cream can get! No, it’s not like Estee Lauder’s Double Wear but it covers all of my red spots and it’s definitely buildable.
Long-lasting: When I was coming home from Greece, I was ready by 10 am on a Friday and arrived in London at around 6 pm the next day. Due to the back to back travel, and various modes of transportation taken, I didn’t have time to fix my makeup. It stayed on my face for 24 hrs + and I DIDN’T BREAK OUT! Obviously, you should always make sure you remove your makeup but this was a one time occurence.
Price Point: Full size £39.95, sample size £4 and it lasted 2 weeks! For some, this may be the deal breaker. Personally, I tend to buy mid range foundations so the price is doable. I suggest ordering a sample size to find your shade because not too many stores in London offer testers in store.
Glow Time has become an essential for me! It’s great for acne-prone skin and I’ll definitely repurchase.
I’ll end this review with a few benefits this BB cream provides via the Jane Iredale UK website:
- Covers blemishes, minimizes the appearance of pores, disguises wrinkles and smoothes and brightens skin.
- Contains SPF 25 or SPF 17* (it varies in shades).
- Water resistant to 40 minutes.
- Smoothes and brightens skin.
- Non-comedogenic, dermatologist and allergy tested.
- Reef safe.
