I know you're probably already sick of reading about BB creams as for the past year they've been literally everywhere. And believe me - so was I, until I tried one. Astor Skin Match BB Cream is the first BB cream I've used and I have to admit, I like it. I bought it at the beginning of the summer as my skin tends to look a little bit better during the summertime and what I knew about BB creams is that they feel much lighter on a skin and give lighter coverage.So I thought I'd try one.

The Astor BB Cream I'm using is a 5 in 1 cream. It hydrates your skin, unifies your skin tone, fuses with your skin, illuminates and protects your skin from the sun. There are two colours to choose: Ivory (the one I've chosen) and slightly darker Nude. 

After using it for some time now I have to say it makes my skin glow, it's moisturising and much for my surprise it gives quite good coverage. It really evens my skin tone and makes my it look natural. It also has a nice scent, which reminds me of Rimmel's Wake Me Up foundation. I also really like the consistency of this BB cream, it's quite thick so it doesn't spill everywhere. 

There's one thing I don't like about this BB cream. It makes my skin shine and I always have to use powder on my T-zone but fortunately that's something I can handle. 

Have you tried this BB Cream? What do you think? If not, what BB creams are you using?


  1. I'm using it too and I really like it, it gives my skin a natural glimpse of sun ;) xx

  2. I'm using Garnier BB Cream, light one and it's perfect. It adjusts to the tone of your skin, makes it slightly glow and what's most important to me - it' so much easier and faster to use than normal foundation.
    Now, thanks to you, I'm thinking about buying that Astor one, since mine is running out and I need some darker shade for the summer and Garner one is too dark for me. If you said that Nude is only slightly darker I need to check it out then, since as far as I remember, you're much paler than me, even without tanning.

  3. I have not tried this, and don't think I will since there are only two shades to choose from! I haven't ever tried a BB cream before, however I do want to give it a try, maybe if I can find one in my shade!

    1. Unfortunately most of BB Creams come in 2 shades I think. I'm happy that I found the one that suits me xx

  4. I haven't tried any bb creams but i really want to, I've been hearing mixed reviews about them so i'm not sure if it's really worth it. x

  5. Every single issue of Cosmo and Glamour ive bought this year go on and on and on about BB creams! I dont know why but it kind of puts you off. Still meaning to try one though. How much was that?

    1. I bought it for about £4 but it was on sale then, I think it's about £5 normally but I'm not sure. Yeah, at first I was sick of this whole BB Cream thing but when I tried one, I understood it xx
